Wave 5 predictions!

Recommended Posts

Because it's never too early to start.

So seeing as there's a good mix of new vs re-sculpt vs re-reprint, what do we think for Wave 5?

I'm thinking:

  • Resistance Bomber
  • Upsilon Shuttle
  • TIE Interceptor
  • A-Wing
  • Some sort of Republic Crew Carrier (LAAT/I?   G9 Rigger?)
  • A scum small-base re-release

That rounds out Resistance and First Order

TIE Brute. Because, curveballs.

The new bomb token in the Hyena expansion is an Electroproton Bomb from TCW:

 

Esentially an Ion Bomb on steroids.

So the new Hyena bomber has the bomb in the video above:

This is a bomb that should be dropped by Republic Y-wings piloted by clones as seen in the video.  I think that's our first clue that Wave V will have the Yellow Republic Y-wing that will come with this new bomb that will probably be most effective against droid swarms, but maybe all swarms.

If we're going with what makes sense from a factional balance standpoint Imps need TIE Bomber to fill that role. Lambda they can wait until Wave 6 and keep building anticipation.

Scum: uh
Resistance: IF not the bomber, then T-85s? If neither of those two, we'll sit this next wave out.
First Order: Well obviously Vonreg's TIE Interceptor.
Republic: Y-Wing or V-Wing, but thinking Y-Wing as another medium base for them.
Seperatists: Sheathipede would be interesting, but probably Tri-Fighter.
Rebels: Beats me! A-Wings I guess!
Imperial: Look there's so many TIEs that it's better to make old ones legal, but let's just say that TIE/RB is way, way frakking overdue.

Imperials will get the TIE Aggressor.  It makes as much sense as releasing the Decimator in Wave 4.

Not really. The Decimator makes sense because they could package 0-0-0 and BT-1 in as it has both crew slots and a Gunner slot. Putting out the Aggressor next doesn’t solve a “hey, my Conversion kit should have that” problem. Not saying the Aggressor can’t be next, but the Decimator does make more sense than the Aggressor.

My official predictions for Wave 5:

Y-wing for Scum

A-wing for Rebel

TIE Interceptor for Empire

Bomber for Resistance

Upslion for First Order

TRI-Fighter for Separatists

Eta-2 Actis for Republic

 

What I want for S&V in the next Wave(s):

HH-87 Starhopper

SS-54 Assault Ship

HWK-290 for Scum. Hopefully a Rebel HWK in a Squad Pack as well (with Z-95's).

I'm hoping the Republic will get the LAAT, or perhaps the Y-wing. It's likely a bit too soon for the Eta-2, and with all the high speed ships the faction will have by wave 4 I'd guess the V-wing will be held back a bit longer as well. 

For the Rebels, I'd expect more re-releases, probably the A-wing if I were to guess.

Resistance will get their bomber or their Falcon, so no real surprises expected there.

I don't play the others so I'm not gonna bother to throw out guesses for them. I'll leave that to people who actually use them.

So random question, @Captain Lackwit what's the reasoning behind the Republic Y-wing being on a medium base? Does Wookiepedia list a ridiculous length on them or something? I know the CW cartoon wasn't always to scale on most things, but they didn't look any wider there, and comparing them to other Y-wings from Rebels (that other CG animated SW cartoon), I feel like they might look a little shorter. Just curious if there's another resource that listed measurements or something.
