Resistance & First Order ships in 2.0

A Resistance Conversion kit should have some Rey-specific Falcon upgrades with it since it’s technically a Resistance ship.

Technically it is the only Resistance ship...... We need a porg bomb for the Falcon now.

Clearly Wave 2 is going to be all about the resistance and first order. Should get a new ship per side.

First Order needs a bomber, but none have made it on-screen. Based on what has appeared on screen, we could get:

  1. The AAL-1971. It's only 17.83 meters long, so it's probably only a medium base.
  2. The Xi-class light shuttle may be a cheaper and smaller alternative to the Upsilon.

On the opposite side of the fence, the Resistance have no less than 3 ships that have appeared on screen without an X-Wing conversion:

  1. The lifeboats from TLJ (best suited as a token like the "Senators Shuttle" from the core set)
  2. The RZ-2 AWing is obvious. If the Resistance doesn't get this eventually, FFG will have missed a golden opportunity.
  3. The Resistance Transport is lame looking, but may be required to give Resistance ships options other than the Falcon to utilize their crew slots.

The AAL-1971 is the one I want the most. For some reason I love the look of this ship.

I suppose if they really wanted to, they could make the ship that Finn and Rose piloted in the last movie.  It has more screen time than the Quadjumper as well as a few older ships :)

Hmmm... They are keeping the Quadjumper in GCW era Scum, but then again there isn’t a FO era Scum faction.  And they could just say that the ship design is that old.

I wouldn't be against if resistance got at least two new ships to jump start the faction. Definitely the a-wing and maybe that resistance transport. And at least one new ship for the first order.

As I counted, scum started out with 7 different ships - y-wing, headhunter, scyk, starviper, IG, HWK and firespray. A lot more than current available ships for FO/Resistance. I wasn't playing yet at that time, so I can't say if it was enough for scum faction to be competitive.

It's my number two from Sequel Era ships to get converted, and the Resistance A-Wing is my number one. The T-85 would be my number three; either a model or just a non-unique title for T-70s would be fine by me.

gonna be real awkward when the resistance revisits yavin 4 (REMEMBER THE REBEL BASE!?!?!) to rebuild their fleet with a bunch of old OT ships in a nostalgia baiting maneuver, causing Disney to expect OT ships to be converted to the resistance faction

FFG should be that ambitious but I get the feeling they may hold stuff back for future waves just so they have something to introduce for those factions. They also have a lot of ships to convert over. We know a T-70 with moveable wings is sure to be included in the first wave. The Resistance surely needs some type of personnel/support ship before the A-wing and the FO needs a bomber. Be interesting to see what they actually decide upon.

Do you mean imperial bomber or resistance bomber?  Imperial I agree whole heartedly. The resistance bomber I find to actually be pretty tank as long as you don't try to joust a Harpoon squad with it or something.

My current favorite build is Crimson Specialist with Delfective Plating, Accuracy Corrector, Bomblet Generator, and Sensor Cluster. 36 pts.

I was surprised the first time I used him how versatile his pilot ability was. Toss bombs in weird spots, move for blocks or to avoid fire and then focus for a guaranteed evade with the Sensor Cluster and make a guaranteed 2 hit attack from that large base turret.  With his 12 health it takes a while to kill it if you can fly it defensive and not get Swarm blasted by a whole enemy list

Resistance. Sadly, all my meta seems to have at least 1 harpoon per squad, fully modded of course.  I can't escape them.

Why are you predicting a return to Yavin? Since the entire resistance can fit on the Falcon, why would they have use for any other hardware without the people to man it?

A Sequel Era conversion kit should be in the future. Not separate First Order and Resistance conversion kits, but a single Sequel era conversion kit that covers them both. There are 7 ships to convert, any future 1.0 releases will include 2.0 stuff as well, and if you got 1 of everything, you own: 3 T-70s, 1 Resistance Bomber, 1 YT-1300, 3 TIE/FOs, 1 TIE/SF, 1 TIE Silencer, and 1 Upsilon. Even giving a 2x of the large ships (Silencer to medium base) you are really making a conversion kit for the extra TIE/FOs and triple T-70s.

Which one?  They flew Three ships, the B-wing MK 2 pod, the stolen ship from DJ, and the Xi class shuttle.  All three should be in the game eventually.

 

im guessing TIE Bombers, Interceptors, E-wings and Y-wings will be brought into the factions with the Conversion kits, most wanted style.  A-wing RZ-2 and Xi-class for the ships with TIE/fo and T-70 (flappy edition) being rereleased For 2.0

I assume piznit meant the Resistance transport pod. I didn't realize until today that it's the cockpit part of the resistance transport seen with Leia in TFA and that it's kit-bashed from a B-Wing's cockpit.

I can see the Xi-class shuttle being included but the stolen luxury/hot rod ship seems unlikely.

There's also the "B-Wing Mk 2 Transport" that Leia arrived to Maz's castle in during TFA.

And yeah, the Empire getting repaint white-on-black TIE Bombers seems probable.  So...at least 5 different ships for each faction, already.  Sounds like FFG is going to try to make them viable with number of pilots, too.

Wow, i had no idea this was some kind of B-Wing. It looks like the descendant of a dumptruck and a fish trawler... *cringe*

It has more of a B shape than the first iteration of the B-Wing though...

Well I was originally meaning the one the snuck out on and flew to Cantor Bight (I think there's even a LEGO set for this one).  But I guess the luxury stolen craft could work too :P
