Quickdraw and swarm leader

6 posts in this topic

Who likes killing Dengar/ Nym/ or miranda in 1 round? I do.

I have a new favorite list:

Quickdraw" — TIE/sf Fighter  
Swarm Leader  
Fire-Control System  
Sensor Cluster  
Lightweight Frame  
Special Ops Training  
Ship Total: 38
   
Imperial Trainee — TIE Striker  
Twin Ion Engine Mk. II  
Adaptive Ailerons  
Ship Total: 18
   
Academy Pilot — TIE Fighter x2  
Ship Total: 12
   
Howlrunner" — TIE Fighter  
Elusiveness  

Ship Total: 20

Basically, you have all of quickdraw's friends take evade and get x2 5 die shots if your opponent shoots you, which he/she will probably want to do rather than eat through ties with evades whilst also dealing with your ace. LWF and Sensor Cluster are nice to making that obnoxious as well.

It's a fun list, this is another one that circulated for a while featuring QD Swarm Leader. It's actually pretty dangerous, but needs to be flown well. Academy Pilots and Youngster evade giving you 5 evades to pull for swarm leader, QD moves into position, uses Rage from Youngster, baffles the stress away and throws 5-6 dice in the activation phase! Fun times. 

 

"Quickdraw" (29)
Swarm Leader (3)
Electronic Baffle (1)
Primed Thrusters (1)
Lightweight Frame (2)
Special Ops Training (0)

"Youngster" (15)
Rage (1)

Academy Pilot (12)

Academy Pilot (12)

Academy Pilot (12)

Academy Pilot (12)

Total: 100

Or for crazy to set up, but what a strike....

 

Quickdraw: Swarm Leader, FCS, Title, LWF

2 x TAP: Cruise Missile, Title, GC

2 x Academy

= Potential 4 x 5 dice with rerolls for everything. 

Reaonable odds of taking out any ship in one turn (if you can get it in the right range).

Ughhh... Tried to link a thread I made and ended up with this... I also copied and pasted the actual list below that... But yeah, swarm leader is good on Quickdraw. Targeting synchronizer is fantastic as well. This is the strongest alpha strike I've ever played with or against:

 

"Quickdraw" (29) 40

 Swarm Leader (3)

 Fire-Control System (2)

 Cruise Missiles (3)

 Targeting Synchronizer (3)

 Special Ops Training (0)

 Guidance Chips (0)

Sienar Test Pilot (16) 20

 Cruise Missiles (3)

 TIE/v1 (1)

 Guidance Chips (0)

Sienar Test Pilot (16) 20

 Cruise Missiles (3)

 TIE/v1 (1)

 Guidance Chips (0)

Sienar Test Pilot (16) 20

 Cruise Missiles (3)

 TIE/v1 (1)

 Guidance Chips (0)

Quickdraw w/ Swarm Leader,FCS,LWF,title

Rexlar Brath w/ Expertise, x7, mk.ii

x2 Academy Pilot

This is a really tough list. I took it to second place in a vassal league. Brath just has his way while opponent tries to destroy academies and then QD.
