Double firespray list

10 posts in this topic

Hi That's my first post here ;)

I've been playing lately with this list:

 

Boba(39)

Gunner(5)

Proton bombs(5)

VI(1)

 

Kath(38)

Gunner(5)

Seismic charges(2)

Proton torpedoes(4)

VI(1)

Slave 1(0)

 

I think about bringing this list to local tournament. I've been very succesful against various 3-4 ship rebel forces, but never played against swarm and double falcons. Please comment and give some hints.

I'm actually thinking about a similar list with Fett and Krassis Trelix. But i fear that Fett has not enough punch.

Thats what i miss on your list. Solid punch, like delivered from Krassis + HLC.

I guess the VI is to counter the 'Han shoots first' lists?

Firesprays have a little more survivability, having twice the evasion dice and the evade ability. However, yes, they do suffer a bit.

Try out 3 Bounty Hunters at some point, where one of them has an Intelligence Agent. That's 100 points, there.

I took double firesprays to my first ever tournament, though with a slight twist. I added fel with push the limit and stealth, do I just took 2 stock bounty hunters :D

 

I do feel that 2 firesprays is better with a 3rd ship, although I am looking forward to trying out dual firesprays at some point (I have about 30-50 lists I want to try out).

 

One list I came up with was.

 

Bounty Hunter/Firespray-31 (33)
Heavy Laser Cannon (7)
Seismic Charges (2)
Gunner (5)
Stealth Device (3)
 
Bounty Hunter/Firespray-31 (33)
Heavy Laser Cannon (7)
Seismic Charges (2)
Gunner (5)
Stealth Device (3)

 

As well as lists designed around getting advanced proton torpedo to hit nicely, either with recon and deadeye or push the limit, though PTL on a firespray scares me slightly... :D

I run 2 Firesprays regularly. I find Gunner was my old go to crew, now it is a Recon Specialist and I often use PtL as well.

 

Using Boba and Kath with a Recon and PtL makes for good damage output and enhanced defense. I usually put a missile on one of them and Adv Proton Torps on the other.

 

It's a nifty set up.

I'm a big fan of the Firespray, but I like to run Vader with them.  Having 2 defense dice and the evade action whenever you think you'll need it (via Vader w/ Squad Leader) makes the Firespray crazy resilient.

VI sits there for bombs. PTL + Recon Spec better than VI + Gunner? I could also swap proton bombs + torpedoes for seismic + HLC

Throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks... I call this the "Can't Touch This" Dual Firespray list:

 

Krassis Trelix (50)

Heavy Laser Cannon

Flight Instructor

Stealth Device

 

Kath Scarlet (50)

Autoblaster

Flight Instructor

Stealth Device

 

Flight Instructor works best on high agility ships, so why not put stealth device on while you're at it, to give both ships 3 dice with (hopefully) one reroll? Also, Kath with the autoblaster is scary. If she rolls a crit with it, they have to get a stress token if they cancel it.

...Flight Instructor? Seriously?

I mean, this is the only build where it would even be feasible, but when you're passing up both Gunner and Recon Specialist, it falls extraordinarily flat.
