I want a Team-up...

Don Karnage from Talespin - one of my favorite ever Disney pirates ...Hondo Ohnaka Appreciation Post | Star Wars- The Prequels Era

and we can make it cannon, make Karnage a Shistavanen :D :D 

You sir have won the Internet for me today. Excellent blending of the old and new. Approved!

(man, now I need to find a good candidate to swap Karnage for a crew or pilot in xwing and make up an unofficial alt art)

And they are coming fast!

(everything is exciting, except that Resistance aces pack - it needed badly to come with the T-85 instead of a second T-70)

EDIT: here is the video.

Since FFG made my last wish for a wave to come true, here are more: (too soon?)

Wave 8:

  • Republic: V-Wing
  • Separatists: Rogue-class starfighter
  • Empire: TIE Brute

Wave 9:

  • Republic: Eta-2
  • Separatists: Droid tri-fighter
  • Resistance: X-Wing T-85

Wave 10 and beyond:

  • Republic: Clone Z-95, Nu-class/Theta-class (pick one of the shuttles)
  • Separatists: Jango's Slave 1, Sheathipede (though CIS pilots/dials for these two could come in card packs)
  • First Order: TIE Dagger, Kylo's Modified TIE Whisper, FO TIE Bomber
  • Resistance: Resistance Y-Wing, Resistance B-Wing (kind of boring...)
  • Scum: Razorcrest, Bounty Hunter Fighter (from The Mandalorian)

Post from January. In red those announced already.

Keep it up with the good work, FFG!!

PS: too soon to guess the Wave 8?

  • Republic: Clone Z-95
  • CIS: Rogue-class starfighter
  • Resistance: X-wing T-85 (and/or Resistance Y-Wing and/or Resistance B-Wing)
  • First Order: TIE Whisper Interceptor (and/or TIE Whisper Fighter and/or TIE Dagger)

May I ask you: what are the 10 (non-epic) new ships you want to see the most in the game?

Mine:

  1. Gauntlet Fighter (it looks so cool. FFG will need to shrink it just a little for the large base)
  2. TIE Whisper Interceptor (because I can't get the TIE Avenger)
  3. Razor Crest (who am I fooling? - this will certainly come soon)
  4. FO TIE Bomber (really nice design, and the FO could use it)
  5. TIE Command Shuttle (obscure? oh yes, but I really want it alongside my TIE fleet)
  6. Black Ace (because it's a TIE and its pilot is really an interesting character)
  7. Rogue-class Starfighter (preferably with "gunship" configuration from The Mandalorian)
  8. Droid Racer ship (because it looks amazing and could have great mechanics)
  9. T-85 X-wing (stop ignoring this ship, FFG)
  10. BT-45D U-wing (Rebels need ships and this is soooo cute)

Mine:

  1. Hera Syndulla in an A-Wing, B-Wing and X-Wing with a new, actually-useful ability (and maybe I6)
  2. Unique B-6 Prototype title to make the B-Wing move like madness (reduce the difficulty of your basic maneuvers, +1 agility, 7b-type costs, pipedream)
  3. Delta-Class Shuttle (cheaper coordinate for Empire)
  4. TIE Shuttle or TIE Boarding Craft (Either, not both; maybe configs can cross them over)
  5. Alternative titles for the HWK-290 (something with devices? Something for cloak?) and maybe Kanan pilot (just maybe).
  6. I5 TIE Interceptor options, maybe even a 2-limited generic, also Skerris
  7. TIE Defender Elite title that removes Full Throttle in favor of actual mobility and firepower, also Skerris
  8. Thrawn crew as epic, expensive, and planning-oriented as the one in Armada
  9. Gauntlet Fighter with Maul and Gar Saxon
  10. I5 Laren Joma U-Wing with Gunner and Turret slots (somehow)

In retrospect, it seems I want a lot more cards than ships.

2 die turret arc. Pilot ability says that you must put it in the side arc? Can rotate after performing a stop maneuver or while the wing are in a specific position, but not actually on action bar?

We got a version in quick build that just had the turret upgrade. Seems more balanced to me since turret upgrades are strictly more limited than turret primaries. Also missed it but switching one crew for a gunner would be cool too.

Your mileage may vary. I don't think it's exactly likely in any case but it would be fun to have an excuse to put Bistan on the right ship. It was some kind of an ion repeater he used in Rogue One anyway so ICT would be a decent approximation.

Again not good but fluffy. Incidentally prevents I5 double-crew shenanigans if that's worth anything.

I'm not sure I have 10 but I'll give this a shot.

  1. New pilot's for the rebels in the A and B wings. Hera, Sabine, Tycho, Wedge, whoever. Just more options for them, with preferably at least one new I5 or 6 for the A's.
  2. New titles for a number of different ships. HWK-290, B-wing (Blade wing pretty please), perhaps a YT-1300 that isn't the Falcon, and Iron Squadron for the YT-2400 (thinking this title would reduce the primary by 1 and remove it's blind spot. probably something else too to make it stand apart from the Falcon). There are others but I can't think of them right now...
  3. The old Tie automated from legends. I love that weird ship, and would see it as an interesting alternative to the standard Tie's. Imperial calc swarm could be neat.
  4. Assaj's fan lookin fighter from the Clone Wars era. This ship probably will happen at some point, but I thought I'd bring it up because Assaj is the best.
  5. Clone Z-95's for the Republic. Gotta have more clones.
  6. JarJar crew for the Republic. He's gotta be weird and he's gotta be at least a little annoying for both players.
  7. Some kind of large ship for the Republic. Leaning towards something more support focused so maybe a shuttle of some kind. 
  8. More Mando's. Razor Crest and Gauntlet in Scum but I suppose you could make a case for some other factions on the Gauntlet at least.
  9. Alternate versions of some more Characters. Luke with a Jedi Knight subtitle would make me very happy regardless of what ship he's in. New Hera could be cool, maybe a different Wedge as well.
  10. Um...uh... Fox McLeod in his R-wing! It's a letter-wing from series just one word away from Star Wars. It could fit if you ignore copyright law :P 

Well I didn't get to 10 but close enough. Looks like not all of mine are ships either, but as usual FFG has hit the big ones for actual ships I want to see. Not a bad thing really.

1. Raven's Claw

2. YT-2000 / Otana

3. Razor Crest

4. Pursuer-class enforcement ship. It's weird and asymetrical! Boba had one in Legends! The Jumpmaster needs a lopsided buddy to circle around with.

5. Rogue-class Starfighter

7. Delta-class T-3c shuttle. I don't fly Empire but it seems like they should have it.

8. FO TIE Bomber. I don't fly FO either, but they lack a ship into this role and the design looks good.

9. Resistance Y-Wing.

10. CloakShape Fighter. Has shown up in a fair amount of Legends material, plus it has a cool spoiler 😉.

1. Dunelizard

2. the pirate uglies from the Resistance cartoon (I guess that might be 2 or 3 different ships though if you include both subtypes of snub fighter and the ratted Lambda)

3. Razorcrest

4. Porax-38/Rogue/gunship from the heist episode of The Mandalorian

5. The spinny, as in how it was flown, Z-95ish bounty hunter fighter from the Mandalorian (I think it was the raider episode, might have been the backstabber one where the landing pad manager and her droids semi-adopted the kid).

6. Miy'til (ya, not going to happen, but still it'd give S&V an actual, non-Mando spinny crap, non M3-<ain't catching a blasted freighter>, interceptor)

7. True Uglies (as in a meh base ship design with a boat load of config upgrade options that change the base ship's capabilities and "role", maybe have the stipulation on the pilot cards that you must equip 1 configuration upgrade)

8. Krayt gunship

9. HH-87 Starhopper (folding wings optional, preferably non-existant, yes I hate moving parts on small miniatures)

10. Erm... Something non-S&V... Erm... Resistance Y-Wing (dakka-wing 3.0!!! :D It'd get me to play the faction other than using the 1.0 T-70 model as a T-65 in pickup games (for easy visual recognition of a limited pilot))

I know it's 10, but I'm actually going to give 11, 2 per new factions and 1 per 'old' factions. Mostly because when I think about what i really want, it's mostly stuff in the newer factions and I draw a blank when it comes to Imperial and Rebel bar the two ships I will mention that are very dear to me.

  1. Ginivex-Class fanblade starfighter (Separatist)
  2. Rogue-Class Porax-38 Starfighter (Separatist, with some Scum crossover)
  3. G9 Rigger-class light freighter (Republic)
  4. Z-95 AF1 Headhunter AKA The Clone Z-95 (Republic)
  5. BTA-NR2 Y-Wing Starfighter (Resistance)
  6. B-Wing Fighter (Resistance)
  7. TIE/dg Dagger Starfighter (First Order)
  8. First Order TIE Bomber (First Order)
  9. Razor Crest (Scum)
  10. Raven's Claw (Rebel)
  11. Rogue Shadow (Imperial, with some Rebel crossover)

That is a fine list! 

However...

3. Jeez, what an ugly ship. Isn't out there any other large ship for the Republic?

10. That's freaking sexy, but will FFG release more Legends ships?

11. Same as 10, and even more unlikely.

The J-Type Naboo Star Skiff.  29 metres long, 49 wide (!)  Maybe pushing the limits of standard play and would probably need a base type similar to the Ghost, but it'd look sweet on the table alongside the Naboo N-1's:

Naboo_star_skiff_1.png

2 top mounted laser cannons, sensor jamming system, and canon.

As for what I'd like to see?  Well... I'm going to go out on a limb here and say I'm really not psyched for "Resistance B-Wings / Y-Wings, First Order Bombers" etc.  If all you have to go on is cloning existing ships, then why bother?  Personally I'd much rather see them get something unique and distinct - like reprints of the Upsilon and StarFortress, or more unique ships from the Resistance cartoon - than slight upgrades and palette swaps of existing ships from existing factions.

Which is probably another reason why I'm more interested in the potential for prequel ships than I am the sequels.

Anyhoo, that's just my take on the subject.

Agreed about the ugliness of the G9 Rigger, but it's sort of like a pug for me, it looks ugly but it also has a cute factor.

There's also versatility for the craft. It would be a large base ship and it would be nice because it was flown by both Anakin, Ahsoka, Obi-Wan and Rex meaning you could have a large base force ship and give us a Pilot Rex for Republic. To not step on the toes of the LAATi its important to only have one crew slot but given it was a scum style freighter you could argue an illicit slot. While the blaster on it can swivel, I think making it a turret ship wouldn't fit it. It's shown to be exceptionally maneuverable in the show itself so I'd like to see it fly appropriately, or at least have access to the barrel roll, and give it a forward arc and a cannon slot.

Not only that, in one episode it was shown that it's cargo bay is large enough for a Delta 7 to fit inside. So I could see a docking mechanic with a way to launch a republic small base ship. Sure you'd have to stretch the imagination with something like a Y-Wing, but it could be interesting.

The Republic don't have a lot of combat focused ships that can be large based. The LAAT was always the biggest thing we saw them use and even that was a transport. There are multiple shuttles that were used however. The Nu-class Transport, the Eta-Class Shuttle, The T-6 Shuttle and the Theta-Class Shuttle. All of these were used for transport and not direct combat with the Nu being the most combat focused as it's commonly reffered to as the 'Assault Shuttle'.

Now, that being said, if we do get a large base ship other than the G-9, it's mostly going to be the Havoc Marauder which was a custom shuttle that the Bad Batch used. Not only is this more likely than the others due to its combat and transport application but because of the crew and gunner cards we'd get out of said expansion. Given that we are also getting a Bad Batch TV series, this MIGHT end up being a cross Imperial ship too.

---

As for the Legends ships, they were literally all I could think of! I couldn't think of any canon Rebel and Imperial ships, although after posting it someone did remind me of one: The Stinger Mantis from Fallen Order. Which technically is not a Rebellion ship, it would fit very well on that faction and I really don't think Scum is an appropriate faction for it.

Wow, I forgot that one. It would look really nice on the table, wouldn't it?
 

No turret? hmmm... well, so it should be nimble and, since it's not heavily armed, should have lots of crew and support gimmicks.

I'm in agreement here, but it is also why I am interested in the ship in game because the goal is to take two similar ships and make them distinct. A T-70 flies very differently to a T-65, at least to me. As does flying a RZ-1 compared to an RZ-2.

So I am...but also not interested if that makes any kind of sense. Good shout on the J-Type Naboo Star Skiff! I do think if they were going to do this they would have been more careful with the wording of the Naboo Handmaidens 'Decoyed' condition. However, the solution to that is simply have a ship ability: "Naboo Craftmanship: Treat this ship as a Naboo Roya N1 Starfighter for the purposes of game text." Again the wording may have to be different to avoid a situation where they release cards just for the N1, but they can word it right.
