Default Going Up Against the Raider

Got my girlfriend the Raider for her birthday, woke up this morning to her telling me about all the ships she's going to blow up and how she will crush the Rebellion.

Can't have any of that!

We're gunna get a 300 point game started up tonight, and in the interest of garnering some advice against huge ships I'm curious....how the hell am I going to bring this thing down?! Ugh. I might have brought about my own demise. Gunna try out this list, pretty rough at this point:

YT-1300 w. Chewbacca
  • Veteran Instincts
  • C-3PO
  • Gunner
  • Millennium Falcon
YT-2400 w. Dash Rendar
  • Veteran Instincts
  • "Mangler" Cannon
  • Engine Upgrade
  • Outrider
X-Wing w. Wedge Antilles
  • Predator
  • R5-P9
  • Integrated Astromech
X-Wing w. Luke Skywalker
  • Marksmanship
  • R2-D2
  • Integrated Astromech
Y-Wing w. Gold Squadron Pilot
  • Twin Laser Turret
  • R2 Astromech
Y-Wing w. Gold Squadron Pilot
  • Twin Laser Turret
  • R2 Astromech
A-Wing w. Tycho Celchu
  • Wired
  • Chardaan Refit
  • Autothrusters
  • A-Wing Test Pilot
  • Push The Limit
A-Wing w. Green Squadron Pilot
  • A-Wing Test Pilot
  • Outmaneuver
  • Expose
  • Autothrusters
  • Chardaan Refit
Z-95 Headhunter w. Lieutenant Blount
  • Ion Pulse Missiles


This all totals up to 298 points, but I'm not really married to it. This is all the Rebel ships I own but I have no worries about cards on hand. Anyone have any thoughts?

EDIT: I have since dropped Tycho for an identical Green Squadron Pilot, and swapped Blount for Craken w. Assault Missiles, Crack Shot, and Munitions Failsafe.

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

Got through about half the game last night, going to finish over the next couple days. Holy crap the Raider is a beast, with the right energy allocation you can consistently fire 3-5 times per turn. I -almost- have some ships ~range 2/3 tailing behind it though, hopefully she doesn't notice my plan and bring that Decimator around to cover her open rear arc...

I say that to myself quite often about my wife. But she always has her rear arc well covered...

Oh man. I actually shared that with my buddy at work when I saw it. Friggin' priceless!!

Some pictures (of the game anyway), because why not.

Rebels sighted:


Getting closer with the Outrider (who's a K-turn away from mossing on that rear no-arc now):

By the way, this is what a Raider looks like getting it's wrecked aft off the table (escaping to hyperspace, as well called it):



As with so many victories on the table top, they don't reflect reality
