Tie interceptor squadrons. 100 pts.

6 posts in this topic

Hello! 

 

Is anyone here obsesed as I am with the interceptors? I know there is a topic on interceptors but it has gone off topic. I am trying to play 4 interceptors only untill I become good at it. I really dont play to win, just to enjoy combinations and make themed squads. 

For now I have:

Saber Squadron:

Fel+elusiveness

Turr + Swarm Tactics

Fels Wrath

Saber Squadron Pilot

Avenger Squadron x4 +  4shield upgrades.

 

Post your custom tie interceptor teams!

 

Also here is a pic of them.

I'm loving the Squints as well.  I tried an all Stealth Device config:

 

Soontir Fel (32)
Upgrades: Swarm Tactics (2), Stealth Device (3)
 
Saber Squadron Pilot (26)
Upgrades: Swarm Tactics (2), Stealth Device (3)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (21)
Upgrades: Stealth Device (3)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (21)
Upgrades: Stealth Device (3)

It didn't work out so well.

 

Next I want to try a Squint Swarm:

Soontir Fel (28)

 

Upgrades: Determination (1)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (18)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (18)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (18)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (18)
 

 

I also have a Firespray/Squint comb that I want to try.  At the last local tourney the big ships did very well.  I think it's time to start including them a lot more.

 

Soontir Fel (30)
Upgrades: Push the Limit (3)
 
Kath Scarlet (52)
Upgrades: Seismic Charges (2), Daredevil (3), Gunner (5), Engine Upgrade (4)
 
Alpha Squadron Pilot (18)

I ran almost this exact list last weekend and it did rather well.

I was up agaisnt a Falcon and 2 Ys with Ions, I could never get out of the line of fire, so the SDs didn't help much.  Also had a match against a couple squints and a Firespray.  Bad dice rolling killed me there.  It was ugly.  I think some tweaks and it could work.  Soontir really needs PTL.  Maybe give Saber Determination or something to give him a bit of survivability since PTL is 3 points vs 2.

Maybe Soontir just needed his bloorstripes, I had not painted them yet.

If you're not tied to running only interceptors, I've been running Mauler w/ Swarm Tactics as an honary interceptor.  This setup costs 1 point more than an Alpha Squadron and you can boost the firing order of an Alpha way up.  Of course, the first game I played last night with Swarm on Mauler + interceptors, I played against a 3 ship rebel squad with Wedge, Horton, and Luke and Swarm Tactics was wasted points.

My opponenets had a little bit of everything.  When running the stealth devices I consistantly take evade as my actions.  It never fails though sooner or later you just roll a handful of blanks and take a hit.  I lost all the stealth devices and two of the four Ints but I was still happy with the performance.

 

A note on the Firespary:  Dang, I wish you could take more than one bomb!  Three would be awesome and just pay the cost for each one.
