Default Anyone tried a triple Firespray list?

Was wondering if anyone tried this listing?
If so how did it go?
What did you spend the last point on if anything?

I have come up against it, and while it is daunting looking at it on the table, my three B Wings actually got through them fairly handily. I will admit some shocking dice rolling on my opponents part played a huge role in that victory though. That rear firing arc is a real pain to try and avoid.

Faced a triple Firespray list at a tournament earlier this year. Like KF says, it is pretty daunting facing 30 hit points throwing out nine/twelve dice a turn.

I was using an XXBB list and it came down to a severely battered Firespray against a B Wing with one hull point left. I ended up losing but I whittled down 28 hit points in an hour and also gave my opponent a break as he flew off the table slightly but I let it fly.

I have only ever ran dual Firesprays though.

Not sure I'll ever come up against this one, but I don't think it would be the worst thing I've ever faced. Is this a list you're thing of playing or that you're going to be facing @tirnaog ?

Pretty sure Bossk and a couple Syndicate Thugs cand handle anything so long as I'm the pilot these days

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

Just playing around with lists atm.
Friend came at me with 4 B-wings last game and I got demolished!
Just to many shields/hull points to get thru.
Was wondering if the FSx3 would give them a run for it.

I've faced off against a double Firespray list, but that's about it.

I faced a dual scum Firespray list after the the triple list and took it to the cleaners. A straight punt down the middle was not a wise tactic on his part.....

^ I'd be worried more about 4 TLT Y's....but I still wouldn't run them right up the centre. Centre is bad.
