Rebel Beef (Extra Lean)

Recommended Posts

I had recently placed 2nd at my FLGS (flew  Braylen, Ten, Horton and Wullfwarro) and got a Rebel ARC with my prize, and then this list was born. That list lacked a strong closer, as the B wings died first and left the list lacking in the manueverability dept. I thought this might be a more balanced team. Any suggestions or tips for Norra in the ARC

ARC-170 Starfighter - •Norra Wexley - 57
    •Norra Wexley - Gold Nine (55)
        •Leia Organa (2)

A/SF-01 B-wing - Blue Squadron Pilot - 41
    Blue Squadron Pilot - (41)

BTL-A4 Y-wing - Gray Squadron Bomber - 41
    Gray Squadron Bomber - (31)
        Ion Cannon Turret (4)
        Veteran Turret Gunner (6)

T-65 X-wing - •Wedge Antilles - 58
    •Wedge Antilles - Red Two (52)
        •R2-D2 (6)
        Servomotor S-foils (Open) (0)

Total: 197/200

Norra wants to be right up front in the mix to get her ability to do it's thing.

Having said that, I think you should upgrade your Y-wing to Evaan Verlaine I3: 

At the start of the Engagement Phase, you may spend 1 focus token to choose a friendly ship at range 0-1. If you do, that ship rolls 1 additional defense die while defending until the end of the round.

That ability is really nice, but you don't come across it out on the tables despite how useful it can be. You can use Evaan's ability to support anyone on your list!

Drop R2-D2 to a regular R2 to get the points to work. It leaves you at 199, so you can add a 1 point Talent on one of the named pilots.

I like the Nora/Leia combo in the arc.  She gets in peoples face and can tank damage.  I think I'd rather have 2 double tap Y's, over 1 Y, 1B.  It's more potential attack dice, and a lot of control.  And it's the same point cost.

As for Wedge, if you want him as your end game piece, my opinion would be switch to R2, and add lone wolf.  You'd lose your bid, but he would be very tanky.  And it makes him flexible if he's the only ship left.

I actually dropped the R2 and the B and put in Biggs. The list felt really rigid and non maneuverable, and so a 2nd X wing really helps.
