Hi!

I preordered...

1* Most Wanted Expansion Pack
2* StarViper Expansion Pack
4* M3-A Interceptor Expansion Pack
2* IG-2000 Expansion Pack

I think this'll give me a good start for a small Vigilante squadron and enough cards to beef up my Rebel and Imperial squadrons.

What will you preorder for wave 6?

1 - Most Wanted
2 - Star Viper

I think it still is to early to tell. i know 1 of each. M3 looks like it could swarm, but i don't know if it will work as a swarm ship. With stats similar to a Tie, which the 20 pt M3 is Howlrunner for the defending dice which is cool.

I'm holding off until I have a better idea of the point costs and cards in each pack. But it's going to be hard to not get 4 IG-2000s for maximum IG-88 shenanigans...

So... that would be 1x Most Wanted pack to of course get the Slave 1 cards when Boba was Jabba's Henchman, right?


I'll be ordering this:

1x Most Wanted
3x M3A Interceptor
1x IG2000 (potentially 3 more)
1x Star Viper (potentially 1 more)

+ 1 new case to hold everything. I think with these I may have FINALLY outgrown my Plano 5231!

"enough cards to beef up my Rebel and Imperial squadrons"

I thought you could not mix and match factions ? cards from Most Wanted would not be used into Rebel/Imp squads?

I want my game pure Rebel vs Empire so the wave 6 doesn't interest me.

3 X-Wing: IG-2000
4 X-Wing: M3-A Intercepor
2 X-Wing: Most Wanted Expansion Pack
3 X-Wing: StarViper Expansion Pack

A quick look at the previews gives you a look at the general point costs. I'm erring on the side that the pilots previewed will be most expensive.

Boba Fett remains the same, however, I'll probably need 2 sets of firespray dials and maybe 2 HWK dials. Also, more Y-wings and Z-95's can't hurt. (It looks like each kit comes with 2 Y-wing Scum dials)

StarViper looks like tops out at 31, so that's max 3 in a 100 point squad

Sycks top out at about 20? So I'm only going with 4 because that's my general rule.

IG-2000 only 3, because the most expensive pilot is 36 points. So unless the other pilots are cheap, you're most likely only going to be able to run 3 in a standard game...

I'm a little crazy though...not every one will have as much as I do. I can easily see a better case for 1 or 2 of each.

Not all the upgrades will be illicit. We've already heard that interceptor fans will salivate over the autothrusters upgrade in the Star Viper pack.

But the last one will get lonely...

I actually wouldn't be surprised if ALL the IG-88s were 36 points.

I would! that would break precedent... also, that would mean a max of 2 of them could be fielded in normal 100 pt games...

They all have the same pilot skill, so the differences would have to be in their abilities... as far as I know, I've never seen 1 ability weighed the same as another...

Like everything else I will probably order two of everything.
As an aside i just dont understand people that will only play what is in the movie.

It is a miniatures game that happens to be based on a universe. It is meant to grow and thrive. I can only imagine playing xwing vs tie etc I would get very bored very quickly but thats just my take

I did the same things I do with every release, and just pre-ordered two of everything. I've done this since the game launched and it has rarely served me badly.

Yes, I ended up with two Tie Advanced, rotting in the back of my storage, but in general the "Everything x2" means I get enough of every upgrade that I would probably want duplicates of.

I also do it this way because while there are always a couple ships I might want a third or fourth of, I am able to play with them first and see what I like, plus it leaves me "small" purchases (IE single ships) that I can make to support my local game store. As a rule I always try to spend $10/15 a week if I go and play, as they've hosted me and my fun for X hours, and I want to see the community continue to thrive.

The only thing is, for the first time I feel like my 2x rule might have been a bit much as it pertains to the "Most Wanted" pack, since it means I am going to end up with eight total Z-95's in my collection. At least i'll have 'em for Epic Play though.

I preordered:
1 Firespray 23
1 HWK-290

Because of those two I only had one each, but need more now if I want to give scum options

1 Most Wanted (because that is clearly enough atm)
1 StarViper (I need to see what role it fits before I start getting more)
2 M3-A Interceptors (I think I'll get 2 more later on, but for now if one of the players I am supporting with my ships wants to fill her/his scum roster s/he has to stick to Y-Wings and Z-95's.)
2 IG-2000. (I am quite sure, that all of the IG-88 droids ae gonna cost around 35-37 points. And since you can't fit three of them into standard 100 points play with that prizetag only two will do atm. We'll see if Scum is supported for Epic. If it is, then I'll someday get two more.)

Regular upgrade cards and titles can be used across the factions.

They're already breaking precedent by having 4 unique pilots and no generics. It just seems weird thematically and mechanically for one of the IG-88s to be better than the others. If they're all the same point cost then you're incentivized to think about the ability of each one, rather than taking the best IG-88 and the X cheapest ones to fill out the squad.

Only fitting 2 in a 100 point game is a good point though. I guess we'll see...

I pack of Most Wanted and 1 IG-2000

Will probably get another of each at some point and one of Xizor's ships just for Xizor.

The fighter doesn't appeal to me much but if it comes with some kickass cards, maybe.

I don't preorder.

Having said that, when it comes out, I'll probably buy just one of each. I think I'm through getting "complete" collections.

Bingo! laugh Me too. Still waiting for my Outrider and alternate paint scheme B and A Wings to hit the store shelves at Miniature Market before I worry too much about the wave after that. Although when it does finally hit, it's IG-88's ship and the alternate color scheme Y-Wing that'll have my attention first.

I want enough to field 100 points with the cheapest pilot each.

Because I have no clue how much that'll be, I haven't preordered yet.

I will want to get four IG-2000 though

I have played X-wing before, but never bought into it - until I heard about S&V. I already bought a Firespray and HWK, and here is my current plan for purchases:

1 (possibly 2) Most Wanted
3 x Starvipers (I really like that ship)
2 x IG-2000

No plans for Scyks - they don't appeal to me personally yet, but I might pick them up after I see them in action.

Speaking of: anyone have an extra damage deck that they would be willing to sell?
