*spoilers* Tallie A-Wing Pilot

Recommended Posts

So we know she flies with bombers, this could be very interesting when it comes to her pilot card for X-Wing. What pilot ability would you create that would keep with her theme as a bomber escort pilot? And yes I'm creating a thread for my new favorite pilot.

 

Tallissan Lintra (Blue Leader) PS8

1) When attacking an enemy ship who is within range 1 of a friendly with a bomb upgrade slot you may roll an extra attack dice. 

2) You may choose to spend an evade token to ignore all bomb effects this round.

 

Those are the two I'm thinking of right away... I'm leaning towards 2 because I think it would be a fantastic pilot ability to have in the current state of the game.

Problem with 2 is it would only dodge bombs that blow up after activation or deliberately eating an action bomb in the way of a friendly ship that cant get away. Unless she has a stupid low PS (doubtful, shes probably an 8) she wouldnt be able to spend the evade yet to avoid bombs dumped on her head.

first one sounds more interesting, afaik its the first ability to check for an upgrade type. Which might become an issue because of sabine (hmm thats a running issue isnt ffg?). Justification for her being so cheap for what she does is she is immensely weak alone.

looks like her greed is very outstanding. I'm sure we all had these situations where we are just a little bit too greedy to spend a token to get something.
With that in mind, "spending a focus or evade to do X" could fit very well.

Maybe increase or decrease secondary weapon range, or maneuver speed, by one? Moving into range 1 to get that cruise off with a bit more uumph, or risking to be hit by harpoon splash, or just risking the return shot in range 1 - they all look greedy to me.

Of course her ability has to be worth it, and it's not in my example.

if you have a focus token you may roll one extra attack dice. you may not spend focus tokens to modify this attack.

I'd like to see her have a true interceptor type ability, not just another Biggs/Lowhhrick type squad shield. Something like;

Tallie Lintra - PS7 - When an enemy ship inside your bullseye firing arc (I think it'd be cool for RZ-2 's to have a bullseye) at Range 1-3 is attacking, the attacker rolls 1 fewer attack die.

That way she combo's well with the Bombers Crossfire Formation, but still flies like an A-wing. It will also make her useful outside of a Resistance only list.

A-wings represent everything good about this game. Maneuvers, actions and firing arcs matter. This ship lives and dies by the skill of the player and a few green dice. 

The Resistance Bomber is an amalgamation of the worst this game has to offer. Easy mode ships with turrets and auto-damage effects. Normally I like quality thematics translated into quality mechanics. The bomber has no reedeming traits in either theme or game.

It would be perverse to give an A-wing a pilot ability to deliberately allign it with garbage like the Resistance bomber.

leading on from that; could have a second one; Ships in your Bullseye arch at R1-2 can't drop bombs.

She is also now in Battlefront two in a Blue A wing with Afterburner, Dual Concussion Missiles and a team ability that allows herself and those within a certain range to automatically regenerate hull and shields continuously for 10 seconds whilst also receiving reduced damage.

You forgot to add the appropriate amount of power creep.

Tallie - 21 points - PS8

At the start of the combat phase you may receive 1 stress token, if you do, all friendly ships within range 1 - 2 of you may place one shield token on their pilot card (exceeding their max value if required) and also gain a reinforce token.

Anyone else think it was very unbelievable that there was no combat air patrol up to intercept Kylo?

 

Tallie and the rest of the Resistance aren’t competent enough to run the galaxy. They deserved what they got for gross negligence and dereliction of duty.

oh sorry :( I forgot this to include power creep. Don't forget the -2 cost title allowing her to place a munitions token on an equipped missile.
