Rebellion in the Rim Shenanigans

Recommended Posts

So my mates and myself are preparing to set up a Rebellion in the Rim Campaign. So I will be running on the Imperial side, and I wanted to do a build around Corrupter and see if I could also push for combat on turn 1 while still being able to be in range to issue squadron orders on turn 2 as well. So here is my start of Campaign list and the list I am planning on trying to build into.

Name: Task Force Corrupter
Faction: Imperial
Commander: Admiral G. Aurelius

Trait 1: Master Coordinator I
• After fleets are deployed, you may gain 1 Squadron token.
• When you resolve a Squadron command, if you spent a Squadron token, it may activate 1 additional squadron.
Trait 2: N/A
Trait 3: N/A
Trait 4: N/A

Victory I (73)
• Admiral G. Aurelius (0)
• Expanded Hangar Bay (5)
= 78 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
= 23 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Comms Net (2)
= 25 Points

Squadrons:
• Maarek Stele (21)
• Major Rhymer (16)
• 4 x TIE Bomber Squadron (45)
= 73 Points

Total Points: 199

Bellow is what I am going to attempt to fully build into.

Name: Task Force Corrupter
Faction: Imperial
Commander: Admiral G. Aurelius

Trait 1: Master Coordinator III
• After fleets are deployed, each friendly ship may gain 1 Squadron token.
• When a friendly ship resolves a Squadron command, the squadron it activates can be at close-long range.
• If that ship spent a Squadron token, it may activate 1 additional squadron.
Trait 2: Rapid Deployment
• While deploying fleets, your fleet's squadrons can be placed at distance 1-3 of a friendly ship.
Trait 3: Fighter Group Leader
• When a friendly ship resolves a Squadron command, each squadron that ship activates may reroll 1 die while attacking until the end of its activation.
Trait 4: Command Staff
• You gain 1 additional Officer icon in your upgrade bar.

Victory I (73)
• Admiral G. Aurelius (0)
• Admiral Chiraneau (10)
• Flight Commander (3)
• Flight Controllers (6)
• Expanded Hangar Bay (5)
• Corrupter (5)
= 102 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
= 23 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Comms Net (2)
= 25 Points

Squadrons:
• Maarek Stele (21)
• TIE Defender Squadron (16)
• Major Rhymer (16)
• 5 x TIE Bomber Squadron (45)
= 98 Points

Total Points: 248

Rhymer is required to make this work.

As you can see, without rapid deployment, if an opponent deploys a large ship full rear, you will not be in range with a turn 1 squadron activation.

Start of turn 2

Resolve squadron command after moving with flight commander on turn 2 with the Victory I-class Star Destroyer at speed 2.

Keep in mind i have not moved the enemy ship from turn 1, just wanted to show that the Vic can get in squad control range on turn 2.

Tell me what you guys think of this bizarre idea of sending 6 TIE Bombers on their face at turn 1.

Unfortunately I don't think the commander tiers work that way.  The way I read the rules is that you can have a total of 4 tiers (of which Master Coordinator III takes up 3), leaving you with only 1 additional tier 1 commander ability available to be filled.

Correct. Total of four tiers combined. 

Sox bombers will get held up by a couple squadrons.....a couple defenders will do.

Thats what Chiraneau, Corrupter and Rhymer are for, re-position and bomb. Speed 3 and short range is very doable.

replaces, do you not just adjust the roster rank up when you up a rank instead of taking another trait slot?

 

Sure. But going up in rank means that trait is now also at a higher tier. The important limit you appear to be missing is that if you add the total "tiers" of the traits your commander has, that number can't exceed 4. The only way to have 4 traits is if they are all tier 1 traits.

So maybe replace your Fighter GroupLeader ability with a BCC on the other Goz, then see if you get more mileage out if Rapid Deployment vs Command Staff. 

Name: Task Force Corrupter
Faction: Imperial
Commander: Admiral G.Aurelius

Trait 1: Master Coordinator I
Trait 2: Command Staff
Trait 3: ?

Victory I (73)
•  Admiral G.Aurelius (0)
• Taskmaster Grint (5)
• Flight Commander (3)
• Expanded Hangar Bay (5)
• Corrupter (5)
= 93 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Boosted Comms (4)
= 27 Points

Gozanti Cruisers (23)
• Bomber Command Center (8)
= 31 Points

Squadrons:
• Zertik Strom (15)
• TIE Advanced Squadron (12)
• JumpMaster 5000 (12)
• Major Rhymer (16)
• 5 x TIE Bomber Squadron (45)
= 100 Points

Total Points: 249

Maybe I run something like this? Sadly won't have rapid deployment. JumpMaster 5000 to sit with the BCC and sent in when repositioning of squads is required. Really want Maarek, but will probably need to settle for Strom and Stock Advanced.

Can you use Tempest Squadron instead of a regular Advanced? I don’t know RitR rules regarding non-ace/non-generic squads.

It feels like this list is investing too much to command all nine squadrons (Command Staff, Grint, EHB). If you replace two TIE Bombers with one Firespray I think it'll feel more free. 

Maybe, still gonna try it, I'm used to flying my squad builds where squads do 95% of the work.

I like how you think.  This is evil.
