There's a ton of options out there for B's. Depends on what you want to do.

The World Champ list was 2 X-Wings and 2 B-Wings. IIRC it was Biggs, a Rookie, and 2 Dagger Squad with Advanced Sensors.

Then there's the 3 B's with Heavy Laser Cannons and Fire Control Systems.

To a point pretty much anything you could do with a X-Wing you can use a B-Wing. They tend to fill the same basic role.

In this situation i'd offer the 'Biggs To a Knife Fight' List.


Biggs Darklighter + R2-F2 + Stealth Device (31)

Dagger Squadron Pilot + Advanced Sensors + Heavy Laser Cannon (34)
Dagger Squadron Pilot + Advanced Sensors + Heavy Laser Cannon (34)

Comes in at 99 points, so you'll steal Initiative against most other Rebel lists

Hi a fantastic hard hitting 3 B-Wing build for you...
3 daggers all with HLC, 2 with FCS 1 with AS = 100 or all FCS for 99pts
or
3 blues with AS and 1 prototype A-Wing with Assault missiles and stealth device is also 100pts.
Guess the 2nd list depends on a-wing owned?!!

If you're using Advanced Sensors, do you want initiative? Isn't it better to know if you need to barrel roll once your opponent has moved?

For a list with no special abilities, it seems to have a great synergy. Every shot sent towards an A-wing means another turn your 3 heavier guns can do serious damage. A-wings are obviously good flankers, but Prototypes can also be blockers for action denial. B-wings are also quite maneuverable at low speeds especially with liberal use of barrel roll.

It's also a lot of HP to get through, and can easily absorb a lot of missile/torp/bomb damage.

I'm wondering of the viability of...

Dagger w/Fire Control System x3 (24x3=72pts)
Biggs w/R2/F2 (25+3=28pts) 100 Total

or

Dagger w/Fire Control System x3 (72pts)
Dagger w/Fire Control System and Ion Cannon (27pts) 99 Total

or

Dagger w/Fire Control System x3 (72pts)
Dagger w/Fire Control System + Proton Torp (28pts) 100 Total

Any thoughts? I only have 1 shuttle, so only 1 Adv Sensors card.

I have a couple for you, each using 3 B-Wings:

Dagger Squadron B-Wing w/Advanced Sensors & Engine Upgrade (31)
Dagger Squadron B-Wing w/Advanced Sensors & Engine Upgrade (31)

For the 3rd B-Wing you can either go with:

Ten Numb w/Advanced Sensors & Engine Upgrade (38)

Or:

Ibtisam w/Advanced Sensors, Push the Limit & Engine Upgrade (38)

Total: 100 points

I'd run these myself but I don't have the 3rd Advanced Sensor card or 3rd B-Wing.

Another list using 2 B-Wings is the "Bloody Knives":

2 x Dagger Squad w/Advance Sensors (27 x 2 = 54)
2 x Red Squad X-Wings (23 x 2 = 46)

Total: 100 points
