I'm thinking of trying this list out - but I'm not a phantom flyer at all - and I sort of scraped together the Sigma setup below from other lists.

Anyone fly Sigmas (or phantoms in general) and have a preferred setup? I was torn between Recon, Intelligence agent (on one) Sensor Jammer ... and other crew/cards.

I ended up thinking Recon fit the build pretty well - but I have no experience with it. If I downgrade I could possibly give Vader prockets - but I think the sigma crew is a better move.

Darth Vader — TIE Advanced 29
Veteran Instincts 1
Advanced Targeting Computer 1
Engine Upgrade 4
TIE/x1 0
Ship Total: 35

Sigma Squadron Pilot — TIE Phantom 25
Fire-Control System 2
Recon Specialist 3
Stygium Particle Accelerator 2
Ship Total: 32

Sigma Squadron Pilot — TIE Phantom 25
Fire-Control System 2
Recon Specialist 3

You could give both of the Sigmas an Intelligence Agent. I've used that before and it's pretty fun. That puts you at 95 points and a few options to use those last few points.

I like predator on vader to help with offense. If you take intel on the sigma's, that would free up the points and still give init bid. I like intel agent on phantoms, especially the low ps guys to have a better idea where to decloak and if a roll is needed. I like the build and may have to try it out. Main target will probably be vader, which leaves them free to do some serious damage.

I much prefer my sigmas with just Recon Spec and Stygiums. FCS is just fine, I'd just drop one of the recon spec's to intelligence agent (helps TONS in the decloak phase) and then upgrade Vader to either Lone Wolf or Predator.

I guess I never really use FCS because I fly my phantoms more as a "get in/fire/get out style. And if I have a 2nd shot, all the better but its usually never on the same target. With the points savings you could put some nasty rockets on Vader for even more damage potential. But first I just recommend you get in there and fly 'em!

While predator does push out a little more damage, I like VI as insurance against a few high PS corner cases, such as Whisper. I like to have one ship guaranteed to move last and shoot first if possible. If Scum are more popular in your meta, then predator will be better.

Sadly I don't live in an area with a Meta it seems. I think some folks play 45 mins or so away - but it's really quiet in the greater Nashville area overall.

I'm trying to fix that now as we have a new game shop in my town and I am trying to drum up interest and (hopefully) a league eventually.

Thanks for the advice so far all. I like FCS for jousting with the Siggies - but swapping them or dropping them would definitely open up possibilities.

I think Advanced Sensors could also work - especially to correct for my (likely) poor flying
