Your most wanted new EU ships in 2.0

Recommended Posts

So I was apprehensive about 2.0 when it was first released and though I am still a bit apprehensive about the price, everything else released seems great so the price seems to be worth it more and more and I get more excited with each new release as most changes seem great. Now with that out of the way on to the actual topic. As a big fan of Star Wars since before the Disney era I get more excited for old EU ships rather than stuff from the new movies so once the new edition is out and they've updated all the old ships what ships from the EU do you most want to see? Or if there are ones from the new movies you want to see what are they? Now I wasn't sure they were still releasing non-disney ships but with the Star Wing release it proves they are still looking back as well as forward so it seems like there is still hope.

For me I most want to see are the Skipray blastboat (would be great with new turret rules/medium base and could be another imperial turret ship, could also be scum as well), TIE Avenger, Scimitar Class Assault Bomber (always liked the look), TIE/D (Droid) (would work well with new droid calculate action). Others that would be cool to see would be the TIE Hunter (would be able to close and open now), TIE Oppressor (always liked the look), Sentinel Class Shuttle (if they ever want another imperial shuttle, probably not), the TIE prototypes, and the A-9 vigilance/I7 Howlrunner (even though I don't love the design it would give the imperials some non-TIEs as much as I love my TIEs)

YT-2000 "Otana" class corelian light freighter.

(That bastardized version called "Silencer" has been taken away from the Empire in 2.0, so getting this one makes sense again)

And probably unlikely nowadays that the Lambda-class has got a rear arc, but cool anyway:
Delta class JV-7 Escort Shuttle

Tie Hunter is the big one for imperials, and one of the more likely I would say if FFG does indeed ever dip back into the legends pot.

 

For Rebels or scum, I really just want to see the ATL interceptor .

Not sure why I love this ship, but man do I want it to get a shot.

TIE Avenger for sure. I could see it costed between the TIE Advanced and TIE Defender.

I'd really love to see a few "pirate" fighters from the TIE Fighter and X-Wing Alliance games show up like the R-41 Starchaser, Toscan Fighter, and Cloakshape fighter if they can be made unique enough from other Scum fighters... or ****, they don't really NEED to be super different. I wouldn't mind some overlap in dials as long as pilot abilities and other stats are unique. 

YT-2000. Yeah, yeah, another large base, turreted ship. It's a nifty ship and I'd love to see it included. Have the pilots costed between the Falcon and Outrider

I ALMOST want to include the T-Wing, but these things were horrible. They were faster Z-95s in the games, but somehow LESS of a threat. Really, the only thing they had going for them was their speed and nose mounted dual cannons. Give it nothing but green straights, white banks and red hard turns, 1 shield and 2 hull.

With the loss of the Firespray for the Imperial arsenal, I feel the Skipray Blastboat is pretty much perfect to fill the hole it leaves as a sub 50 point (or 2E equivalent) medium base ship. It has several different load outs in lore, so could be made very customizable chassis for Imps to play with.

Over with the Rebels, it’s a toss up between the V-Wing Airspeeder and the Raven’s Claw, Kyle Katarn’s 2nd ship. While an airspeeder, this V-Wing was one of my favorite ships to fly for Rogue Squadron on the N-64. In the game, it had rapid fire cannons that could overheat and require cool down and a special boost system. Translating these to X-Wing could lead to some interesting mechanics and abilities. Could thrown in some more Rogue Squadron Pilots, including Kasan Moor, a former TIE Interceptor pilot. The Raven’s Claw would likely be a high speed support ship, something you could send in with A-Wings. You could still have Kyle and Jan, but also add in Kyle’s Jedi Apprentices as other pilots, increasing the Force User pool.

And for the Scum of the Galaxy, The main ship I want from the old EU is the Wild Karrde. Having it and characters like Talon Karrde represented and Mara Jade in Scum would be awesome. Special shout out to the Pulsar Skate, as well. I don’t have that much of a personal connection with it, but I think it’s cool looking.

Now for the truly out there wishes, I’m gonna to mention the Ebon Hawk. Made and flown thousands of years BBY, it and it’s crew of powerful Jedi, crack pilots, and murderous droid would probably be stretching things to the breaking point in trying to fit them into the game, but by golly, I would buy and play the crap out of that ship. Continuity be damned!

TIE/hu, TIE/ad avenger, TIE/M1, TIE/D Droid.  V-wing.

M-wing, N-1, T-wing. (advanced x-wing!) L-wing (Wait that's some sort of Fanon), E-9 explorer (might be better as scum)

Uglies! (not the dumbest ones, though), Cloakshape

Other factions: D-type Trifoil Fighter. (more unlikely than the Vong)

Seriously, though, this list just about covers it.  Even if they aren't official, does anyone know where I could find an Escort Shuttle model the proper size to use for 2.0 (casual only, of course)?

Strangely enough, I like the the Howlerunner but that A-9 Vigilance, no thanks. I am also not a fan of the Skipray. The DX-9 Storm Trooper Transport might not be bad, but it would have to have a god awful dial or would just be another gunboat.  I would like to see the Dornean Gunship for Epic, but I seriously doubt that will happen, that ship gets no love.

I think the Imperials need a new, cool, bad *** large based ship, like the MRX-BR Pacifier.

Hapan Cluster Miy'til figher: the Storm expansion.

Here's how I'd do it: I'd design a ship which could handle having white (or even green/blue) S-Loops or Tallon Rolls.  The updated wording on R4 Astromech doesn't really work with the design I'd started to base around the 1E Unhinged Astromech, but still.  I want a ship which could have native green/blue turn-arounds.  So what would that be?  Roughly an A-Wing style statline, a dial perhaps more like a TIE Advanced.  Perhaps I'd even go a step too far and give it a 1-die primary.  However, it'd certainly have a special cannon that's always attached and essentially free.  In 1E, this would be handled via a title which assigned a specific upgrade, kinda like Mist Hunter and Tractor Beam.  Not sure how to phrase/structure it in 2E though, other than "through the App."  In lore, Hapan heavy weapons were slow to recharge, so having a big-dice weapon which could only be used every other turn makes sense to me.

Imagine having white T-Rolls, but a 1-die Primary.  You've got a 4-dice cannon which, if it hits, deals one critical damage and cancels other results.  Say.  2E charge language works great here.  It just requires two charges to fire, and only regains one per turn.

So while it'd be a great ship for keeping guns on the target every turn, you don't need to keep guns on the target every turn, since your cannon can only be fired every other turn.

YT-2000 - come on we really need this ship just so we can have all three original X-wing game protagonists in the game. (Hopefully Keyan is still in 2.0). I'd be fine with them putting it in either the Rebellion or in Scum on the basis that each of the OT factions has one of the protagonists in the game.

Sentinel Shuttle - The only OT ship that is in scale and still not in the game. Give it a slightly better dial than the lambda, more hull, able to take 3 crew, a gunner, cannons, and a turret and you have one beefy ship that might be able to fill the Imperial 4 dice primary role like the Ghost does. Not to mention it is a good way to bring in Rebels related crew considering how often it appeared in that show. 

T-47 - It is something I'd like, but it is also an airspeeder rather than an actual starfighter so I don't expect to see it at all. 

Lady Luck - Shiny scum ship that would likely look great, and could bring fun EU stuff related to Lando as well as a Mara Jade pilot, hopefully.

Clone Wars Republic and CIS ships, like most or all of them. Hopefully we will see them in 2.0 since it isn't that much more of a step to go from 5 to 7 factions.
