played a couple of quick games the other night, went to the store the next day, a starter, Imperial aces, 2 Awings and Xwing and an interceptor later... Play alot of flames of war this is a very nice change of pace

lists based on what I have:

Law and Order:

Soontir Fel +Push the limit 30
Carnor Jax +Push the limit 29
Turr Phennir 25
Backstabber

will have to learn how to turn and burn very quick or will just burn, or using all 5:

Turr Phennir +Adrenalin Rush 26
Royal Guard +Push the limit 25
Royal Guard +Push the limit 25
Academy Tie 12
Academy Tie 12
100

Rebel scum I feel a bit more ham strung with only 2 A's and 2 X's, add a B or Y and it starts to feel better but to start

Tycho +Push the limit +Assault missiles 34
Green Squadron A +Push the limit 22
Rookie Xwing +R2 22
Rookie Xwing 21
99

First stab at both anyways

Looks like some fun flying builds. I agree that the A-Wings can feel a little on the weak end for how much they cost, but they can definitely help round out a solid rebel build. Your two imperial builds will defiantly stretch your ability to fly as you have to minimize your opponent's shots while exploiting your maneuverability to flank and destroy.

am looking forward to reble aces for the remove missiles card for the Awing at -2

find it very hard tog et excited about any of the named xwing pilots yet, a pair of rookies seems a solid choice though

Tycho +Push the limit 29
Blue Squadron B Heavy laser 29
Rookie Xwing 21
Rookie Xwing 21

is my next projected build as soon as I can get my hands on a Bwing

You'll understand the value of Biggs once you field this squad, and your opponent focuses fire on the B right out of the gate.

Wedge can be lethal with PTL and R2 astromech.

Luke can be very hard to take down with R2-D2 and a shield upgrade.

Garven is a great combination of a legit attack and squad support.

Reds are good in the current meta where PS4 is preferred.

So, don't discount the other X pilots. Give 'em a try!
