Blue Squadron Pilot (35)
B-Wing (22), Fire-Control System (2), Heavy Laser Cannon (7), Engine Upgrade (4)

Blue Squadron Pilot (35)
B-Wing (22), Fire-Control System (2), Heavy Laser Cannon (7), Engine Upgrade (4)

Any thoughts?

Dump the engine upgrades and take shield upgrade instead. Ditch weapons eng, pursuit lasers, and marksmanship and take draw their fire. Give Biggs r2d2 if you can and shield upgrade if you have a third.

Is this the one at gameshire?

Get a combo of 6 X-Wing/B-Wings

could be devastating.

I haven't played with the new stuff yet, really, so I don't know how much my advice is worth!

But looking at that, I see 2 hlc blues and chewie. That's a 100 point list. So you're paying 50 points for biggs. Now, I know you have upgrades, but I wonder with all those extra points, if you won't be edged out by someone who just goes for straight up 50 extra points worth of attack dice and hps.

Also, if youre trying to keep the b-wings at range three, it will be hard to keep biggs there too (though he's set up to die pretty hardcore anyway . . . )

Or am I better off with Biggs instead of Luke?

If you want to play the YT with Marksmanship/Gunner, use Han instead. And since you're going to be using marksmanship on most turns, you don't need the Weapons Engineer. APLs are only good on low PS ships. Engine upgrades are fun, but I feel that they are a little "experimental" on the B's...they could easily turn into 8 wasted points. So, all in all, I would:

+4 pts: Put in Han over Chewie
-5 pts: Delete WE and APL on Falcon
-8 pts: Delete two Engine Upgrades

That nets you 9 pts to do something more interesting with Biggs. Maybe turn him into Luke/R2D2/Swarm Tactics or something.

(And yes, OP is playing at the one at GameShire)...."Hi Weston!!"

Swarm on han or luke sounds like a really good idea. With more ships, taking out a key one before it gets to do anything seems even more important.

Here's what I got from that. Now with 150 points that means people are going to be fielding a lot of ships, should I be worried about this?

Han Solo (54)
YT-1300 (46), Marksmanship (3), Gunner (5)

Luke Skywalker (34)
X-Wing (28), R2-D2 (4), Swarm Tactics (2)

Blue Squadron Pilot (31)
B-Wing (22), Fire-Control System (2), Heavy Laser Cannon (7)

Blue Squadron Pilot (31)
B-Wing (22), Fire-Control System (2), Heavy Laser Cannon (7)

If I had any Y-wings I would consider that list. But I don't. Because no one has any for sale.

Hmm I could do 4 Rookie Pilots and 3 Blue Squadron Pilots. How important is having the HLCS? I feel like with Han or Chewy I could do some tactical blocking and that would help support my b wings.

And $235 MSRP. Done.

12 TIE fighters isn't cheap either I guess, clocking in at $190. But I could find a lot more builds to use a ton of TIE Fighters with, not sure what I'd do with 6 shuttles... Wreck markers?
