Ship of the day: VCX-100

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I have flown it a few times, not bad but not amazing either. My favorite build had Hera with Nien and Saw. Burned through a bit of my health but every ship I shot FELT every shot. If I fly it again might try throwing on Advanced Sensors, expensive but might be well worth it.

I would love to fly Kanan but man, not being able to use his ability on himself when he already costs so much hurts.

Whould Kanan be a problem if his ability affected himself? Minus 1 die into a 14 health reinforced brick? 

Yeah I guess, but at the same time at so many points you are limited what to bring with him, and if they die his ability is useless.

If it did work there are restrictions like Force Charge dependent and 0 agility ship so chances are they are still doing damage even if reinforced.

Dang it if that's so, I'll need to buy a fourth ghost lol

(also ran out of reactions today, sorry :))

To be clear: I was trying to say that in the Rebels show the Attack Shuttle folds it’s wings up to dock. Because of this, and an inability to replicate that folding well at this scale, might be a large factor in their choice to go with the Sheathipede. Not to mention we’ve already had a stand-alone Sheathipede, so maybe it’s time for a stand-alone AS?

The picture I saw definitely appeared to be a completely new AS mold with the wings closed. Thus I’m hoping we might get that as a bonus, even if it’s not legal to fly on its own (or you need to have an extra dial, etc.)

I ran out of reactions for the day so imagine there was a "REKT" reaction I could put on this message

Also why on earth do you already own four ghosts? :D

I really want to make Chopper work in the Ghost; I think it's got a very good skill that works really well with a ship that loves to try and block. The biggest downside is that it can't take a focus action, but that's why Two Tubes could be a good wingman; hoping to start testing this one out soon:

(47) Benthic Two Tubes [UT-60D U-wing]
(0) Pivot Wing
(8) Perceptive Copilot
Points: 55

(50) Magva Yarro [UT-60D U-wing]
(0) Pivot Wing
(2) Leia Organa
(2) Tactical Officer
(2) Trick Shot
Points: 56

(70) "Chopper" [VCX-100 Light Freighter]
(4) Ion Cannon Turret
(6) Veteran Turret Gunner
(0) Ghost
(1) "Zeb" Orrelios
(4) Chewbacca
(3) Shield Upgrade
Points: 88

Total points: 199

It was somewhere among the Wave V leaks or Celebration stuff. I can’t seem to find it at the moment.

Iirc @Crabbok is the one who shared the picture. Could check their YouTube channel, they may have a vid of the displays up.

I had some flying Saw, Lone Wolf, R2-D2, hull upgrade Hera. The idea is R2 takes the heat off of Saw a little, and Lone Wolf let's you reinforce each round. That was before it had a sensor slot, so I'd probably add advanced sensors now. 

It was decent. Not great, but decent. 

A friend of mine had a lot of fun with some build for Kanan, it was Collision detector and Hera crew, though I guess you could just sub it for Leia crew now.

That’s... that’s just the 1e Ghost peg, though? So is that the 1e model?

The display case isn't super accurate yeah... that Jumpmaster is on a medium base which sort of gave me a heart attack.

Me and a friend brainstormed this a few weeks ago, and it's been doing very solid work.  Regen Luke is a pretty solid end game ship, which means he benefits well from Kanan's ability.  Kanan himself can just reinforce every turn, and get fully modded shots from the Saw/Magva combo if anyone decides to shoot him rather than Luke.  AP-5 coordinates actions to folks as needed, and lets you fit Leia in the list.

There's probably a good argument for dropping Leia for a Dorsal Turret to give Kanan more coverage, but Leia's just such good value she's hard to pass up...

Kanan Jarrus (84)
Magva Yarro (8)
Saw Gerrera (8)

Luke Skywalker (62)
R2 Astromech (4)
Servomotor S-Foils (0)

AP-5 (32)
Leia Organa (2)
Total: 200

In our local shop we had a player who was a Ghost monster in 1.0 and flew the heck out of the Ghost early this year.

And I also took the Ghost out for a spin for one month trying to learn how to handle this beast.

End result is that She dies quickly.

It's all anecdotal with a narrow population, but I've never seen a Ghost team in 2.0 survive let alone win.

 

That said, it's a beautiful model and it's the ship that my Star Wars RPG uses for the campaign.

Hera with Nien Nunb and a Seasoned Navigator can be brutal. As long as she dials in one of her red turns, she has access to everything on her dial except the 2-hards and the 3-4 straight.

I can attest to this, flown twice against a list containing Hera, Nien and Seasoned Navigator and it was effing horrible.
