Them n-1s tho

Recommended Posts

I remember when The Phantom Menace came out in theaters. We were introduced to Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Jar-Jar. Yet these sleek chrome beauty’s are nostalgia and style wrapped in one yellow package. 

Needless to say when wave 4 was announced I was overjoyed to field the royal star fighters. 

Here is my first attempt. I have 13 points for upgrades and currently have them placed on Ric with juke for offense and r2 for regen but am flexible as I have yet to fly them. 

ARC-170 Starfighter - •“Sinker” - 54
    •“Sinker” - Wolfpack Veteran (54)

Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Anakin Skywalker - 41
    •Anakin Skywalker - Hero of Naboo (41)

Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Ric Olié - 53
    •Ric Olié - Bravo Leader (42)
        Juke (7)
        R2 Astromech (4)

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

Total: 198/200

Sinker for the obvious reason, that reroll comes in clutch. Generic torrents for blockers and extra guns, red dice are good. Anakin can dodge around fairly easy. I’m not worried about his survivability more so his offensive power. Ric is awesome. He’s got maneuvers and firepower. However I’m open to any suggestions and criticisms. Thank you.

Juke on n1s is a trap. You get to juke like once maybe twice a game. Lose juke and r2. Put daredevil on both ani and ric. Use r2c4 bot on ric.

Ric can do a 3 speed, daredevil, and if not shot at, use the evade like a calc on offense.

Anikan has his force after a daredevil turn. And his ability works even while stressed since its not an action, so he can daredevil, then next round, use his ability, clear stress with a blue, and daredevil again if he has too.

You want to capitalize time on target while sinker is alive, and I think daredevil is best ept on the N1z and gives you best chance for time on target. 

If I was gonna put juke on any n1, it would be anakin because with his ability, its less likely he will get blocked doing the obvious 3 bank/turn.

My N1 I would be putting Juke on Padme. Since the defender could only modify 1 focus result it severely reduces higher evasion rolls effectiveness :D

Ani is really fun with Torps because in one turn he can throw on a lock and still have the force with re-rolls

How I would set this list up

-Sinker: 54 (I would personally put Wolffe here with commander Cody at 53)

-x2 Gold Squadron Pilots: 50 (or put Wolffe here!)

-Ric: 47

R2-C4

-Anakin: 47

Advance proton Torps

List total: 198

Actually got some play time with this list. I didn’t get any value out of Plo. I used his ability once and it really wasn’t necessary. Having the force pool was more used than anything. Ric shined! He was absolutely amazing! His ability went off every round except a couple and it really hurt when it didn’t. The failure was on my part though. The arc and torrents are really good. They soak up shots so the aces can fly around and do ace things. The torrents were ignored most games. 

Here are the changes I would make:

List 1

Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Ric Olié - 48
    •Ric Olié - Bravo Leader (42)
        Predator (2)
        R2 Astromech (4)

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

ARC-170 Starfighter - 104th Battalion Pilot - 42
    104th Battalion Pilot - (42)

Delta-7 Aethersprite - •Obi-Wan Kenobi - 60
    •Obi-Wan Kenobi - Guardian of the Republic (47)
        •R2-A6 (6)
        Calibrated Laser Targeting (4)
        Brilliant Evasion (3)

Total: 200/200

Keeping Ric and the beef but switch Plo for Obi. Obi-Wan’s ability is much more versatile as he can do it to himself and doesn’t need friends. I never used daredevil so figured predator would get Ric more value. 

List 2

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

V-19 Torrent Starfighter - Gold Squadron Trooper  - 25
    Gold Squadron Trooper  - (25)

Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Anakin Skywalker - 50
    •Anakin Skywalker - Hero of Naboo (41)
        Plasma Torpedoes (9)

Naboo Royal N-1 Starfighter - •Ric Olié - 47
    •Ric Olié - Bravo Leader (42)
        •R2-C4 (5)

ARC-170 Starfighter - •“Wolffe” - 54
    •“Wolffe” - CC-3636 (50)
        •Clone Commander Cody (3)

Total: 201/200

 

This list omits the Jedi in favor of little Ani. Torps optional but plasma seems good, maybe sway for predator on Ric and adv proton torps on ani. Also dropping the generic arc and picking up wolffe, the choice should speak for himself as he’s a beast!

I dont have an ARC yet.... But another D7 with CLT would work I guess?

His suggestion was to swap out Wolffe for a pair of Gold Torrents to make for some super,  happy, annoying, blocking, fun time!

This list (with torrents not arc) was really fun to play btw :)

Sweet! I would love to hear your thoughts on your game(s) with it.

Okey, so now I have tried around 6 games with 1xD7, 2xNaboos and 2xV19 and I really enjoy the lists! I tried a couple of games with Daredevil on Ric and that was awesome. Had some success by sending the Torrent-wall followed by Obi Wan in a good slow pace. The Naboos wants to flank and run in a high speed, and Daredevil in Ric helps a lot with flexibility.

I flew this list just *** a reason to have 3 N1s on the table. I won the game, and it seemed good and fun if not A-tier.

  • Anakin Skywalker - N1
    • Juke
    • R2 Astromech
  • Padme Amidala 
    • Juke 
    • R2 Astromech
  • Naboo Handmaiden
  • Mace Windu
    • Calibrated Laser targeting

I put decoy onto padme so that I could keep her debuff in the game as long as possible. this allowed her to talon roll and still have a token for defense.

I've got the following list also in my bag to play some evening

  • Padme Amidala 
    • R2 Astromech
  • Naboo Handmaiden
  • Anakin Skywalker - Aethersprite
    • R2 Astromech
    • Delta 7B
    • Stealth Device

The idea being to decoy anakin giving him all the defensive mods that he needs to score points in the early game so that he can close out the end game. Reminiscent of the 100 point ace from version one with Lowhhrick and Fenn

 

As the handmaidens are so expensive at 44 points, I think they need to be run naked. I've dabbled with putting regen on them too as their gun is worthless, so a disarm token isn't a bad thing.

I've been solidly putting time in with the N1, and it is a strong chassis IMO. At first glance, it lacks punch, but there are things to do there to improve that. 

Building on a list I saw being flown by Marcel Manzano, I have moved to flying Little Ani, Ric and a Delta7 Obi-Wan.  The magic in the list comes from the upgrades.

  • Ric Olie - R2, Advanced Sensors, Daredevil
  • Anakin Skywalker (N1) - R2, Passive Sensors, Crackshot, Proton torpedos
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi - Delta 7b, C1-10P, Sense

There are a lot of triggers, and a lot going on, against lower initiative ships, you have two ships with pre-move reposition or action economy, paired with regen. You also have a high initiative 'ace' in Obi-Wan who can evade/force even if bumped ... and then can dish out jam actions for free in mid/end game. 

Advanced Sensors/Daredevil on Ric is amazing ... it keeps you engaged in combat as you can reengage quickly with a daredevil boost into a 3 bank leaving you unstressed for next turn.

Sense/Chopper on Obi mean you can leverage the pre and post move repositioning to get blocks and fine tuned controls means Obi will always stay inside range 1 of an enemy target, giving you opportunity to do range one TL/Force attacks against a jammed or tokenless target. 

Finally - the gem of the piece ... for 61 points, little Anakin is a terror. Firing double modded torps with relative ease, and carrying a crackshot to keep the spike damage up once the munitions have gone.

The last thing to say is that R2 is a cornerstone of this list. N1s benefit from this droid more than any other ship, simply because the two regen charges will always take you back above half points, no other ship with an astro slot has this hull/shield ratio.
