I was wondering how many of you bought multiples of the wave 3 ships? With wave 1 and 2 I bought extras of each ship, except the big ships I got one each and because of this I just wanted to be sure to get one of everything from here on out to not miss anything. Do you feel the wave three ships are so good that extras are needed?

I preordered 2 of each ship. Then over the weeks as more and more were revealed I wanted an extra B-wing and tie bomber. I did pick those up early at gen con. For our game group I tend to be the one who provides for the whole group so I like to have multiples of every thing. But with X-wing several members have bought in to the game.

This is the first wave for me that Rebels outnumbered Imperials.

1 HWK
1 Shuttle
2 Bombers
2 B-wings

I have since won a third Bomber and am contemplating picking up a fourth (for Jonus + Squad Leader & 3 missile-laden Scimitars), along with a third B-wing (for any of several possible 3 B-wing squads). I can't imagine ever putting more than 1 pure support ship on the table, so only need 1 Shuttle and 1 HWK.

There is no reason to have two A's at the beginning of aardvark. I simply won't do it.

O_O How you do it? I need to get my wife to stop spending my money so I can get more.

1 B-Wing
1 Bomber
(and when they come back in stock)
1 HWK
1 Shuttle

I've only purchased one of each thing and I don't imagine I'll get any more.

I'm not saying I invented the fedora, but I was the first to recognize it's potential as a gaming accessory.

I got 1 of each ship and a second B-Wing myself. I feel like a second Bomber is probably in order as well. I can also see value in a third B-Wing and maybe a second shuttle, but thus far I've held myself to a ship less than I probably really want for everything in this game I'm happy to say.

I always buy 1 of the 'big ships'and 2 of the 'small ships' (except the X-Wing and the Tie-Fighter). For more ships I'll wait for all types of 'Aces' expansions...

4 each, except the Shuttle that I bought 3 of. But then I won the tourney on Saturday and got my 4th Shuttle, so I'm good until Imperial Aces comes out.

4 B-Wing
4 TIE Bomber
1 HWK-290
1 Lambda-Class Shuttle

I've basically bought 4 of every ship except the large ones, which just don't seem thematically appropriate to ever see more than one on the table at a time (solely opinion, of course). I have bought heavily into this game so that my friends can always build the force they want to build, and I can do the same, using only my ships.

I'll definitely be buying the Imperial Aces, Tantive IV and Rebel Transport expansions as well, despite the overlap of ships.

I do intend to buy more of each, eventually, so that I can repaint them intersting colours, but for the moment I settled on what I might actually want to put on the board.
