I have always loved A-wings, and even though in my video game experiences they have been frustratingly fragile, I keep coming back to the enjoyment of speed.

Just playing with a few of the yet-to-be-released EPT cards and came up with two lists that I thought might be fun to try at home - while still packing a punch. I enjoy the idea of an asymmetric approach with some heavy hitters and flankers. Does anyone else have success with this route?

Please forgive my terrible puns...

The images in your post are private to everybody who's currently logged into your mail account. So I guess only you, the NSA and a variety of other secret agencies see them, but not the people you want to show them to

Haha! Thanks for the heads up - I still feel like a complete newb with the forums and sometimes just try things to learn a little more... didn't work this time.

Edited above.

R2-D6 is "unique" so you can't have it on both Reds, unfortunately.

I was thinking about Outmaneuver + Predator on A-wings but PTL is probably better, because it's more flexible. But you would get the mini re-roll without getting stress and you could use your action for Boost or Focus.

Good catch! That is unfortunate...
