100 point Imperial List

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:

Whoa thread neglect. Thanks for the responses! Let's see here....

determination on the decimator is something one of my friends swears by
Now, I do too! Ditched 5 damage cards through it in one game, usually it gets rid of at least 2.

Dauntless unfortunately doesn't play well with Isard
I have noticed, though would have sooner if I had have checked this thread :/

Super sweet list of Interceptors
..but unfortunately I only own TIEs and a Decimator.

I have been running (quite effectively, I might add) this list recently after the initial games with the OP list:

Chiraneau w. Determination, Isard, Rebel Captive, Jerjerrod
3x TIEs
Howlrunner w. Swarm Tactics
2x Academy Pilots

So far it's been great and been plastering my Rebel list (in that other thread of mine you've all commented on :grin:), seems like I'm left with either TIEs or the Decimator at the end of every match. The Decimator is much more stacked with things that will keep it alive since Chiraneau already has offense covered. Printing off a ton of cards really helped open this game up to me! I will one day have them all as printed by FFG...but yes. Anyone have any thoughts on the current incarnation of my Imperial list?
