150 point tournament 'dis or 'dat?

Recommended Posts

You need engine upgrade to make the lambda a threatening beast. If you want to swarm shuttles try:

 

6x Omicron Group Pilot + Engine Upgrade

 

Now, if you want to run five of these beasties in a herd, my recommendations would be:

 

5x Omicron Group Pilot + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

 

They won't be as potent as my standard doom shuttle.  You can fix that with this:

 

3x Omicron Group Pilot + FCS + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

Omicron Group Pilot + Gunner + Engine Upgrade

Omicron Group Pilot + Vader

I would be tempted to run a couple of these in with the mix, depending on your flying preferences:

 

Omicron + FCS + Engine Upgrade + Weapons Engineer + Ion Cannon (33pts)

 

Gives you a nice way to control traffic while you graze on your enemy, and I'm just a sucker for the FCS + Weapons Engineer combo

So I just played at TShift (Emerald City Slaughter) this weekend here in the Seattle area and took 3rd place on Sunday with this 150 point build.  I made some missle changes based on the play but it is same otherwise.  I hope this helps.

 

Major Rhymer w/Swarm Tactics, 2 x Homing Missiles

Captain Jonus w/Swarm Tactics, 1 x Homing Missiles

Bounty Hunter w/Heavy Laser Cannon, Recon Specialist

Bounty Hunter w/Heavy Laser Cannon, Recon Specialist

 

I had a particular way I setup and piloted which worked to my advantage.  My only loss was in first round and it was a piloting error on my part.  My opponent came up to me after the tournament and told me if I wouldn't have made the mistake, I probably would have won.  This was my actual first tournament for any miniatures games as I am a CCG player but it was a lot of fun.  Plan to do some more.

We got in a few practice rounds of 150 points:

 

Game 1 my friend wanted to run his Imperial list against opposing Rebels so I just threw together a quick list.  He ran Vader, Howlrunner and some other random TIEs (total of 5), along with a bounty hunter.  I ran decked out Han, Ten, and Ibatism.  Han shot first and Howlrunner never had a chance to fire or bestow 1 re-roll to her comrades.

Death of a bounty hunter while Vader watched on helpless.  I did not lose a single ship this round!

 

Round 2 was swarm vs swarm.  My friend ran his same list as above against my modified 8 swarm list:  All the name TIE pilots with stealth (squad leader on Howlrunner and expose on Mithel), plus a few extra red shirts.

Another bad day for that bounty hunter!

I won this one again with Vader going down last.  He took one TIE out with him leaving me 4 TIE left.

 

I still need to try out the 12 TIW swarm :)

That looks insanely fun to play!

I ran a 12 TIE swarm (Howlrunner + 11 Academy) yesterday, that lasted 3 turns.  I'm surprised how many do not attempt the assault missile alpha strike.  I carried off a alpha vs a squadron of 4 TIE bombers the other day, it was beautiful.  I had 6 Proto Awings all with assault missiles.
