I got a Decimator! The thing absolutely crushed my buddy's squadron (of two X-Wings, an A-Wing, and a B-Wing), the list I ran was:
Chiraneau w/ Isard, Dauntless, Ruthlessness
Howlrunner w/ Swarm Tactics
2x Academy Pilot TIEs
Wow that large ship killed it. Even when you only are moving a 1 maneuver it still gets going because of the size of the base, its 2 straight is almost the same as a TIE's 3 straight! Not to mention the ability to shoot in a 360 firing arc, and if your opponent is all bunched up Ruthlessness deals out damage to secondary targets. Oicunn looks like he'd be fun to play, just bash your ship right into the centre of your opponent's squadron and mop up some hits. Bumper cars in space! My TIEs ran interference, moved in much faster than the Decimator did and just got in the way of the Rebel ships while doing as much damage as they could before dying. They really set up Chiraneau to sweep in and blast away the remaining hit points.
Fun times!! Tonight I see if I can take this list down with my double X-Wing double Z-95 list, I'm really hoping to push a bunch of Crits at the large ship with Marksmanship. Otherwise I think I'm likely toast! :laugh:
