Can a thematic list be competitive?

Something like:

Han Solo — YT-1300 46
C-3PO 3
Engine Upgrade 4
Ship Total: 53

Luke Skywalker — X-Wing 28
R2-D2 4
Ship Total: 32

Prototype Pilot — A-Wing 17
Chardaan Refit -2
Ship Total: 15

What do you think?

Yes, this can be good. Han is going to hurt less than his usual super Fat versions that use both crew slots, because he doesn't have either punch with Gunner or regen with R2 crew. R2-D2 Luke is fun. I would like him better with VI, but an A-Wing is just a lot better and more fun than a Z-95, so it should be fine.

Purely speaking thematicaly I think Han would prefer to have Chewie riding shotgun rather than C3-PO, unless you have Chewie in the A-wing!

Remember your own mantra.... "Let the Wookie win!"

I played the list twice.

First against Vader, Howlrunner and 4 Ties. Second versus Vader, Whisper and Alozen.

It was two times an uphill battle. The advanced targeting computer on Vader spread crits like candy. That was way too much for Han.

Now I want to change my list to:

Han Solo (46)
Push the Limit (3)
Chewbacca (4)
C-3PO (3)
Engine Upgrade (4)
Millennium Falcon (1)

Bandit Squadron Pilot (12)

Bandit Squadron Pilot (12)

Bandit Squadron Pilot (12)

Total: 97

The 97 points give me initiative. That's what I missed by my two losses.

Not as thematic as I intended. But Han and Chewie fly together as suggested by DB Draft …

Thougts?
