I've been thinking of a list using a fat Han and something different as a support ship. fat Han has predator, C3PO, gunner, MF, EU. Thinking a hawk with Kyle Katarn as pilot, recspec, MC, TLT, stealth. Curious about other thoughts and or suggestions. Any input is much appreciated!

I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

Hmmm... if you have a 56 point Han you like to run two Rebel Operative HWKs with TLT's run 44 points... and "Han and the Baby Hawks" sounds like an okay band name!

My thoughts were that fat Han could do what fat Han does and Kyle could pass him a focus every turn as long as he's within range 1-3, and Kyle isn't completely helpless having the tlt. I've debated putting jan ors crew on Kyle so he could pass an evade to Han each turn, so Han could have two evades if he needed. But it'd be nice to have a supply of focus for tlt shots and evade dice on Kyle. But I do like that squad title!

I did a 60/40 split between Han and Jan at regionals. My Han had PtL and Kyle Katarn, so he would Focus+TargetLock (and usually Evade) every turn. It wasn't the best squad (placed in top 8 but not top 4) but was really fun to fly. Seeing Han unload with a focused/target locked attack with 5 dice is just impressive to see.

I built, but have not played, a Han/Kyle Katarn squad as well. Seems like it would be reasonably entertaining. I maxed out on the idea of Kyle as support - gave him an Ion Cannon, Recon Specialist and Moldy Crow. That way he's well stocked on Focus, can give them to Han w/o worrying about them, and hopefully lock down someone each turn, keeping Han from getting flanked.

I'm also really interested in a Han/Poe squad. Han with an X-Wing is just so lore appropriate, and Poe with R2-D2 is a pretty reasonable ship on his own. R2 may not actually even be required, as I'd assume most people will ignore Poe to tackle Han, so he may not be losing many shields anyway.

What about Han with gunner paired with Jan Ors? If I understand the card abilities correctly, it may be possible for Han to roll up to four time with the bonus dice on two rolls. On the initial roll, then on the re-roll with Han's ability followed by the gunner roll and Han's ability again if applicable.

If the above is correct, does the additional attack dice apply to roll granted by gunner as well?

Jan's ability states that she can do it if she has no stress tokens. The first time you'd do it, she'd get a stress. You'd get the bonus die for the first attack only - Han would reroll all of them. If he had Gunner and missed with the first shot he'd make a second attack and would not receive the bonus die, because at this point Jan would have received a stress and could not buff attacks again until it was removed.

It's kind of anti-synergistic with a Gunner, since you want that first buffed attack to land.

Could work!

Han Solo (YT-1300)
-Predator
-Engine Upgrade
-R2-D2
-C-3PO
-Millenium Falcon Title

Poe Dameron (T-70 X-Wing)
-Push The Limit
-R5-P9
-Autothrusters

Only thing you're really missing out on is the Weapons Guidance tech upgrade on Poe, but he's a really tough nut to crack with his ability and R5-P9.

I like this but I'm not sure about ptl on Poe. Seems like you wouldn't want to stress him. He'd either be really predictable on his next turn or you wouldn't get the focus, which I think is a must on him almost every turn. I'd lean more towards lone wolf or maybe predator.
