I wouldn't say the Advanced is awful as such. It's not amazing, but it's a pretty nifty fighter.

Especially if you give Vader some cluster missiles to play with

There are some great synergistic combos with vader, just 2-3 ship builds is a bit tight.

True, but you get what you pay for I suppose

I'm currently giggling my tits off at taking Rexlar (Defender) with HLC. Pricey, but fun. Round him off with a bunch of Academy bullet magnets and let the silly times roll

A list of Vader, Turr and Fel can be brutal but can also fall apart very easily.

Darth Vader - Squad Leader + Cluster Missiles
Soontir Fel - Push The Limit + Stealth Device
Turr Phennir - Predator + Stealth Device

99 points.

Alpha strike with Vader's missiles then follow up with Fel and Turr's EPT's and focus equals one dead ship very quickly.

Being able to thrown out four basic defence die, plus range and an ability for all three to be turtled is an absolute pain. This list can turn from sugar to shit very, very quickly so you don't want to be bogged down in a war of attrition.

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.

That's the kind of list that needs you to keep moving. Fast.


You and Rich definitely up for the Tourney?




EDIT: Scratch that bro. Just got the bill through for a new wheel and tyre.....

Dude, you've gotta try:

51 Rexler w/ PtL + HLC + Engine
12 AP
12 AP
12 AP
12 AP

Rexler's ability doesn't come up that often, but when it does... Dealing 4 crits to chewie is great fun.

When I was a young boy, I dreamed of being a baseball...

SO hooked. Even my girlfriend has made an X-Wing list on Battlescribe now! Just got two more Tie fighters and a Z-95 in the mail as well.

Is there an online list of some kind which has all the upgrade cards and what sets they come with?

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Thanks @Tawa ! That site is pretty swank. Bookmark'd!

@mrknify , I'm loving the potential of this app but all it is doing is constantly crashing. Boo-urns!
