Help with Rebellion

Recommended Posts

Greetings,

In a plot twist, my handle deals mainly with x-wing (and old 1.0 at that, far more balanced in 2.0) and I don’t have a ton of Rebel experience. I’m working on learning how to play them better without going out and chasing the hotness where possible.

My main goal is keeping games fun and interesting with our casual players without making it a “empire wins every game” (something our home crew seems to have happen outside of rebel mirror match ups).

What I have to work with:

Heroes: Core box Luke, Leia, Cassian + K2

Corps: 3x rebel troopers, 1x Veterans

Support: 2x RT

SF: one commandos box, one wookies 

heavy: t47

extras: Rebel Specialist x1
 

Interested in both 500 skirmish and 800 standard lists. I feel pretty good about my imperials list building in casual play.

Here’s my rule: You can advise additional purchases to get where you propose, but no more than 1 unit box and one hero purchase beyond what is here. Rebels are not my passion but my diversion + backup for helping keep games from going mirror match. It’s immersion.

This is what I whipped up. My thinking is match up and mission specific Cassian can hang back and be annoying, or he can get in the mix. Infiltrate works well for some missions. The corps units are going to try and balance between farming objectives and shooting, and the RTs are there purely to harass the enemy.

What would you do differently?

Cassian is plenty competitive. But the Pistol is way more fun to play than sniper. I usually don't take Endurance, but Hunter and Offensive Push. The standby is fairly difficult to pull off with a competent opponent.

--Aggressive Tactics (10), Strict Orders (5) I'd drop the Aggressive Tactics - you won't hardly use them or miss them. Keep her cheap.

After about the first 3 months of releases, I realized the Z-6 is useless to me.  YMMV. But dropping the z6 and AggTactics gives you 76pts which is enough for another squad or two. R2D2 is really good.  Jyn is actually really fun with Cassian and Leia. You might be able to squeeze in Young Luke too for some variety.

Cassian may be able to be change his rank to Operative when he is deployed, but he is still a Commander for the purposes of list building.  You can't legally build a list with Cassian, Leia, and Jyn/Luke (unless it's Op Luke, of course).

I meant in place of Leia. My phone auto corrected. Sorry
