Here we go guys

Whisper - 42pts

Upgrades:
Rebel Captive (3)
Fire-Control System (2)
Veteran Instincts (1)
Advanced Cloaking Device (4)


Kath Scarlet - 58pts

Upgrades:
Cluster Missiles (4)
Mangler Cannon (4)
Proximity Mines (3)
Veteran Instincts (1)
Tactician (2)
Slave-1 (0)
Shield Upgrade (4)
Flechette Torpedoes (2)


So here's my thoughts on what this list does. Whisper will be the big damage dealer, and RC will add stress for him being targeted the most.
Kath will be controlling ships action's by putting alot of stress on with the crit's from the mangler cannon and pilot trait combo. Everything else is to have fun and mess with ships.

Thoughts and idea are welcome!

A) Putting a lot of points in one ship is dangerous. Of course with a two ship list, they both will cost a lot. However, it is very important that Whisper move second against other pilot skill 9 ships. So, you might want to drop something from Kath (maybe flechette torps or cluster missiles) to bring your point total under 100 points. You are unlikely to get to use all that ordinance anyway. Get to 98 point or maybe even 97 so you can choose who has initiative.

B) While I like shield upgrades, Kath might benefit more from engine upgrade to increase her range of maneuver options on the board.

C) Also as to Kath, the ordinance usually consumes additional actions to use (actions to drop bombs, target lock for missiles/torps) and Pushing the Limit will grant you some extra action economy which may be more useful than two more pilot skill.

D) Tactician can be great from stress but, you must be in the regular weapon arc and at the correct range and your maneuvers/weapon load out may not be ideal for this. You already tend to get stress with Kath so it's a bit redundant. Try using Recon specialist. Any focus action is then doubled meaning you can use them on offense dice AND defense dice which help the Firespray survive.

This more flexible Kath has a better chance of surviving even if Whisper goes down. Whisper should be the priority target.

If you like the tactician stress,it does work out of both arcs on the firespray. I know people swear by rec spec,but I almost always regret not having Gunner on my Firesprays.
