As I got my shiny new Rebel transport today, I figured I'd try to organise a big Epic Game of X-Wing at my local gaming club, using just my minis collection...

These are the two forces I've put together.

I've tried to split each force into different relatively self-contained 'Flights' that could potentially be used by any different players that want to join in.

Imperial Fleet

Flight 1
Darth Vader — TIE Advanced
- Squad Leader
- Cluster Missiles

Major Rhymer — TIE Bomber
- Determination
- Advanced Proton Torpedoes
- Cluster Missiles

Captain Jonus — TIE Bomber
- Determination
- Proton Torpedoes

Boba Fett — Firespray-31
- Heavy Laser Cannon
- Mercenary Copilot
- Anti-Pursuit Lasers


Flight 2
"Howlrunner" — TIE Fighter
- Swarm Tactics

4 x Obsidian Squadron Pilot — TIE Fighter


Flight 3

Tetran Cowall — TIE Interceptor
Turr Phennir — TIE Interceptor
Soontir Fel — TIE Interceptor
- Push the Limit

Boba Fett is a bit of a wild card, he could pretty much go into any of the other flights, or someone could just fly him alone by themselves if they wanted to, if they want to take part but are not too used to the game. Alternatively, some people may be bringing their own TIE Fighters and will use them instead of him.
As for models, my collection also includes a Lambda shuttle, so I could swap out some other things for that. - Maybe Boba? But I imagine that Boba would be seen as more 'fun' than the others.


Rebel Fleet

Truth be told, I'm not too sure about this fleet a single bit. - The 2 unused mini's I have are an A-Wing and a B-Wing. I'm also definitely open for more sensible ways to field my new Transport. - Obviously, as it's my new toy, I'll almost certainly be commanding it and Flight 1.


Flight 1
GR-75 Medium Transport — GR-75 Medium Transport
- Frequency Jammer
- Slicer Tools
- Combat Retrofit
- Dutyfree

"Hobbie" Klivian — X-Wing
- Proton Torpedoes
- R5-K6


Flight 2
Wedge Antilles — X-Wing
- Swarm Tactics
- R5-P9
- Shield Upgrade

Luke Skywalker — X-Wing
- R2-D2p
- Shield Upgrade

Wes Janson — X-Wing
- R2-F2


Flight 3
Kyle Katarn — HWK-290
- Blaster Turret
- Recon Specialist
- Moldy Crow
- Shield Upgrade

Chewbacca — YT-1300
Draw Their Fire
- Gunner
- Millennium Falcon

Gray Squadron Pilot — Y-Wing
- Ion Cannon Turret
- R2 Astromech


I'm definitely open for suggestions and tips for these guys. My main focus of the game is to have a bit of a spectacle and a good time for both sides.

My few cents on rebels. If you are taking full Kyle pack in 300 points you can get most of your points add Garven Dreis and Biggs with R2-D2 and move shield upgrade to Biggs. Its the ultimate rebel synergy list, your focus tokens are simply infinite.

I was figuring Chewie with Draw Their Fire was a better synergy than Biggs. - As both have turrets, they'll be able to fly in the same direction to mess with any fire coming their way.

Garven is a good shout but I figured he'd mess with the turrets.

Truth be told, I'm thinking about dropping Kyle and Luke entirely and replacing them with Garven (R5-P9 on Wedge would have work well with Garven's focus passing.)

So, I'd have something like:

Flight 1

GR-75 Medium Transport — GR-75 Medium Transport
Slicer Tools
Frequency Jammer
Combat Retrofit
Dutyfree

"Hobbie" Klivian — X-Wing
Proton Torpedoes
R5-K6

Prototype Pilot — A-Wing
Assault Missiles


Flight 2

Wedge Antilles — X-Wing
Swarm Tactics
R5-P9
Shield Upgrade

Wes Janson — X-Wing
R2-F2

Garven Dreis — X-Wing
R2-D2


Flight 3

Chewbacca — YT-1300
Draw Their Fire

Gray Squadron Pilot — Y-Wing
Ion Cannon Turret
R2 Astromech

Blue Squadron Pilot — B-Wing
Advanced Sensors




This is all ok, I think. - The A-Wing means that I'll have 3 ships to fly, so I'm not completely out of the game when my Rebel Transport dies horribly in the first pass.

The only downside is, I don't think the B-Wing works well with Chewie and the Y-Wing. - However, the Advanced Sensors should help it keep up.
