No Glory Tournament list

Recommended Posts

Our next tournament at my FLGS will be a No Glory theme where none of the pilots can be unique so I put the below together because I think it will be fun more than I think I can win with it but what does everyone else think?

 

TIE/in Interceptor - Saber Squadron Ace - 46
    Saber Squadron Ace - (40)
        Outmaneuver (6)

TIE/in Interceptor - Saber Squadron Ace - 46
    Saber Squadron Ace - (40)
        Outmaneuver (6)

TIE/ph Phantom - Sigma Squadron Ace - 61
    Sigma Squadron Ace - (46)
        Juke (4)
        Collision Detector (5)
        Stealth Device (6)

TIE/sa Bomber - Scimitar Squadron Pilot - 42
    Scimitar Squadron Pilot - (28)
        Barrage Rockets (6)
        Proximity Mines (6)
        Skilled Bombardier (2)

The Sabers and the Sigma are nice, but I'm not sure on the Scimitar.  That feels like a lot of points for 2 green dice and no shields.

Personally, I kind of want to try to get 2x Saber and 2x Sigma.  Dropping Stealth Device for just Juke/ColDet, they'd be 55 points each, which would leave 45 for the Sabers.  Crack Shot would be a lot cheaper, and open up a pretty decent 8 point bid, at 192 total.

This isn't a suggestion to change your plans, but here's what I had on my listbuilder for a thought on a No Glory list, and it's something I'd consider.

  • Sigma Squadron Ace (Juke, Collision Detector) 55
  • Sigma Squadron Ace (Juke, Collision Detector) 55
  • Onyx Squadron Ace (Juke, Fire Control System) 85
  • Total 195, bid 5

I was running two Sigma Phantoms with a Defender.

Both had juke and it was more than enough to make them good additions to the list. You could happily shave the other upgrades off for points elsewhere.

I would have liked to have a second Sigma, unfortunately I only have the one model, though I could probably borrow one for the tournament.  The Scimitar was really more of a distraction / bait filler but yea that probably is too many points for that roll.

I actually started the build with four Sabers but then remembered that I only have stuff for two.  :(  Although once again, I might be able to borrow stuff, it would just make test flying harder.  Thanks everyone for the ideas, I get my first test flying tonight.

Bgrelle, this wasnt the No Glory in San Antonio this weekend was it?

If not, I ran across a similar list.  2 inteceptorz/2 phantoms.  Each ship was 50 points.  I think the interceptors had predator, and phantoms had juke.  All pilot skill 4.  I just dont know the actual build.

No, we play on Dec. 1 in Waco.  My practice games on Thursday were with two sabers with predator and two Sigmas with juke and collision detector at 194 points.  I have been flying rebels only for more than a year now so I am out of practice with my first love ships that make up this list.  However I was able to fly fairly well in both games and even pushed the best player in our group to a close match even after blanking out on defence on both of the squints in the first round of engagement.  Fun night, I will be playing this list some more to knock some more of the dust off of my arc dodger flying.
