B-wing lists? X-wing 2.0

Recommended Posts

I feel like the 2 named pilots with advanced sensors and hull upgrade should be pretty good in theory. Basically get double-mods on attack whenever you do one of their many red maneuvers. 

The list that I've heard is doing the best in competition is variations on the list above my post, 2 Blades with selfeless and shields, Biggs and a 4th ship. I prefer Juke Sabine as the 4th ship with hull upgrade on Biggs.

I think B-wings can be viable, especially after points adjustment.  I'm tempted to run BBUU, with named B-wings and Cassian and Magya, but worried that 2x U-Wing with lower init will clutter up the play area.  I like Cassian more to clear stress from Braylen more than I feel like I need Magya to prevent re-rolls.  So I think I want to put in Sabine/DebrisGambit to get an asteroid field flanker while I run my BBU up a side-alley.  Here's the list @ 199 points.  Curious to hear what people think.  I'm not 100% sure about HLC, but I have some points to spare.  Trick shot vs. Crack shot is a tough one.  Predator on Ten helps with the dreaded blanks.

 

Braylen Stramm — A/SF-01 B-Wing 50
Trick Shot 1
Heavy Laser Cannon 4
Ship Total: 55
Half Points: 28 Threshold: 4
   
Ten Numb — A/SF-01 B-Wing 50
Predator 2
Ship Total: 52
Half Points: 26 Threshold: 4
   
Cassian Andor — UT-60D U-Wing 47
Trick Shot 1
Tactical Officer 2
Electronic Baffle 2
Pivot Wing 0
Ship Total: 52
Half Points: 26 Threshold: 4
   
Sabine Wren — Attack Shuttle 38
Debris Gambit 2
Ship Total: 40
Half Points: 20 Threshold: 2

Jyn is good for Ten and Braylen when they don't have an arc. 1 dice, guaranteed evade. 2 die at range 3, 1 guaranteed evade, plus a focus for Ten and a reroll for Braylen.

That's true.  And f Ten is using his ability and not the focus from his stress move (barrel roll -> linked focus) that could be a better use.  I tried tac officer but don't seem to use the coordinate, so maybe Jyn is a better spend.

I had some fun and success with this double B-wing/U-wing list;

Blade Squadron Veteran w/ Selfless

Blade Squadron Veteran w/ Selfless

Cassian Andor w/ Selfless, Tactical Officer, pivot wing

Magva Yarro w/ Selfless, pivot wing

 

It's quite tanky and very easy to move damage around. Magva keeps them all a little safer in formation, and Cassian allows you to manage the B-wings stress a little better, or allow Magva to stall almost continuously.
