The Most Likely Ships of Future Waves (And Why They Might be Fun)

To expand on that, you could also have the Skipray and the Sith Infiltrator.  We never saw Vader in one, but it would seem to fit the lore than Palpy buys all his kids one.  Or stick with lore and have Darth Maul, Darth Tyranus, Valin Draco, and the generic Dark Apprentice.

Otherwise, you need to start looking at agents of the Empire, like Mara Jade in the Jade's Fire, above.  Or Doctor Aphra while she worked with Vader, some bounty hunters, and the like.  But, at that point, you are definitely talking about one-offs, and pretty much adding scum to the Imperial faction.

At that point, it's probably easier to just create a "Merc for Hire" mechanic to go ahead and steal from S&V.

The new Darth Vader comics give him this Nubian-inspired Scimitarish ship:

I would expect to see this before the prequel version since FFG is loathe to borrow from the prequels.

I don't think shuttles have much more design space to distinguish themselves, personally. Incorporating huge ship actions/slots is a cool idea, but not very sustainable when the only difference between a Lambda and a Sentinel is the Jam action or some such thing.

I'm hoping for a scum YT-1300 in wave 13. Double crew slots for Jabba (how ironic) and accurate pricing on the pilots. I believe there is a popular family f pilots that took to the YT-1300 in the old EU that could be used fairly well for this.

For Rebels I'm looking forward to the almost inevitable RZ-2 A-wing, hopefully with the "gimballed cannons" worked in as a title mechanic that lets you fire outside your firing arc on a target you have locked.

For Imperials I'm hoping for something of the wall. The Chiss Clawcraft would be fantastic, or TIE droids. I'd settle for an FO bomber if it came down to it though.

Only for X-Wing Mintaures:

God I hope not, that thing is all kinds of ugly. It looks like an Ugly, actually, like the artist traced on TIE/v1 wings onto something else, and then the colorist forgot to keep the glossy finish up on the whole ship so it looks like the shiny front end is a different piece from the center. 

Yep.  It doesn't look like a scimitar, it looks like a bloated shoe horn.  Ick.

I didn’t say it was pretty or that I liked it.  I’m just saying it’s now Vader’s ship, in the new canon, during the rise of the Empire.

Yeah.  Sure would hate to see there be a single ship in the game that Scum didn't have access to.

If we're going to do that, we should probably have a Scum TIE Punisher, too.  That will teach them for stealing our ships!

Are you kidding me, if they got it would come with some sweet fix upgrades, and illicit slots+upgrades to boot. :P

...is there some way we could let the Scum steal one, and then get a card that allows Imperials to use Scum ships?

The only precedent for Scum-Imperial crossover I know of is the Slave-I.

Imperial Agent/Spy, something like that, similar to "Captured TIE" maybe.

I do like the GAT-12 Skipray Blastboats , looks kinda like a nose/ cockpit section of a Westland heli (Lynx or whatnot)

Turret though looks kinda like a Panzer 2 turret though, lol.

I'd hope for a turret slot, two crew slots,  and five titles to cover all the variants, maybe leaning towards extra ion tokens the way the  Lancer-class pursuit craft builds give out extra tractor beam tokens.

Most of these variants are not very different. I think they could be resumed in 2 or 3 titles (one focused in ordinance, one with low-cost cannon and one with system).

And yes, this could be a great addition for the Empire.

Just to much shuttle in there. The last thing Imperials need is another one of those. IMO now that it is canon (Vader had one) the best candidate for a large ship would be the Sith Infiltrator. Maybe we could get our own unique version of Maul with it?

It would come with the first pilot cards you had to flip over to see all the upgrade icons - they'd run out of room on the front 

I don't see why that would be necessary, even one or two more illicit slots would be easily to accommodate...

Rebels

  • U-wing Aces two pack (Partisan and Lothal Rebel paint / chop jobs)
  • Blue Squadron x-wing
  • Partisan squadron x-wing
  • T-16 Skyhopper (why not)
  • Dornean Gunship (epic)  or
  • Hammerhead Corvette (epic)

Scum

  • Kom'rk class ship (epic, mandalorian title and Darth Maul)
  • Aurore-class Freighter (epic, with Mining Guild/Imperial Title)
  • GR-45 (epic, painted all nice and rusty, with Rebel Title and Scum GR-75 Title)
  • Halo (large base) 
  • GX1 Short Hauler (large base, with Rebel Title)

Imperials

  • Guardian Class Light Cruiser
  • MRX-BR Pacifier (large base ships that isn't a shuttle or an ugly Decimator)
  • Mining Guild Tie fighter (so Imperials can use illicit mods)

 

As you might be able to tell, I like epic ships.
