What ships do you have thus far, and how many of each? What do you plan on getting with the next wave?

I've got one base set and one of each expansion of wave 1 and I bought another base set (still unopened) on sale not too long ago. I'm just wondering if I open the second base set, then should I buy additional first wave ships (another gladiator, another Frigate, maybe another Neb and Corvette) to keep things sort of balanced? Or should I sell the second base set and just wait for the wave 2 ships? Any point in having more than 2 Victory Class Star Destroyers? More than one Gladiator or Frigate? 4+ Nebs or Corvettes?

I'm just wondering what others have and are doing.

Thanks.

From what I can tell, 2 GSD is very useful, 2 AFs or 3 Nebulons might be as well, depending on how you build your fleet.

Not sure 3 VSDs or 3 Corvettes (for Corvettes, probably need 4+ if doing a "swarm") are really useful, especially with the MC30 and ISD on the horizon.

Since I play casually, though, I am just going for one of every expansion (may eventually go back and get a second set of fighters).

I have purchases so far that equates to me have 2 of every ship and 2 of each squadron pack. I also only play casually, so to have the ability to either have 2 large fleets going against each other, or have smaller fleets of the same faction battling, is a nice option.

Going forward, I'm only going to get 1 of each, and then buy duplicates if I really want them. Although Rogues and Villains looks good enough to get 2 to start with...

One core set an two of everything from wave one. But I primary play with my kids, so I have to provide ships for both sides.

I also only play casually, but I'm also an idiot and can't resist buying expansions when I find them on sale, so I own:

4 Corvettes
2 Nebulon Bs
4 Assault Frigates

3 sets of the Rebel squadrons (plus what came in the base set)

3 Gladiators
2 Victory Class

4 sets of the Imperial squadrons so that I can field entire squadrons of any 1 type of ship should I want to

I've also ordered 1 of everything in wave 2, plus an extra Raider...

I have:

2 Core sets
1 VSD (3 total w/core ones)
4 GDS (one is on its way)
4 Imp Fighter packs (with the 2 core fighters I can fly 16 ties for 400 point games!)
3 AF
2 Neb's (4 total w/core ones)
2 CR90's (4 total w/core ones)
3 Rebel Fighter packs

I have ordered:
2 ISD
2 MC80
1 Raider
1 MC30

I will get a Rogues & Villains and eventually 1 more MC30 and 3 more Raiders when I can afford them. That's assuming we ever GET the Wave Two ships! I'm hoping tomorrow will be when FFG ships the ships (haha) since it would make them available for Worlds? I'm assuming those lucky enough to have earned Wave 2 ships from Sullust can use them for this tournament but it seems very unfair to those who don't have them yet.

As for Rob, if you can afford it I'd say yes to buying an additional one of each expansion of wave one for the upgrades alone. Open that other core! You get the extra dice and I, like most others used the second maneuver template as a speed two template (only put together the bottom section with one middle and the top, using numbers 0, 1, and 2). For Wave two I suggest one of each expansion to start for the upgrades and the two beast ships (ISD and Home One!). You can run an ISD with two VSD and some fighters, maybe Home One with a variety of flankers, etc.

If you are focusing on only one faction you should be able to sell the models on eBay and keep most of the upgrades (sell the uniques and faction-only upgrades with those models you sell). I'm in a dead zone as far as playing with others so I have both factions in bulk to maintain solo games.

I highly recommend Cardhaus for orders over $125 because they are the cheapest option. My Wave two order above was 146.27 (the same order at Miniature Market is 157.84 and will take longer to arrive).

Best of luck and be sure to actually enjoy these ships!!

1 core +

2 Victory SD
3 Gladiator SD
2 Imp Fighter Packs

3 AF Mk II
2 CR90
1 Neb-B

I was going for the upgrade cards in the expansion packs. The individual ships having new upgrades + duplicates from the core set were worth more to me than another core set. Unless all the extra fighters the dice and the movement tool are totally worth what you spent on the extra core, I would sell it and buy into wave 2 or buy some fighter packs.

When I'm able to get wave II, I'm going just as big with

3 Imperial SD
4 Raiders

2 MC80
3 MC30s

MAYBE 2 of the Rouges and Villains pack, but I'm undecided.

Core set (1xVSD, 1xCR90, 1xNeb-B)

Plus: 2 x Assault Frigate, 1 x CR90 expansion, 1 x Gladiator, 1 x Neb-B expansion, 1 x VSD expansion, and 1 each of the Rebel and Imperial fighter expansions.

I have enough games to play that I don't need to worry about running out of options with limited wave 1 material while I wait for wave 2 to round things out more. Of course, it's very few X-wing expansions that I've been motivated to buy in multiples, as well; maybe I'm just cheap? (As if we can be cheap and play these games much at all...)

I have 1 core set & 1 of each of the expansion sets & an additional Nebulon B. I think that going forward, I will only collect Rebels as that is the only faction I play. I will get at least 1 of each of the Rebel stuff, but I may get multiples. I am considering 2 MC80 & 3 MC30. I am undecided on the Rogues & Villians set though.

2 core sets (great deal on the second)
1 VSD
1 CR90
1 Neb-B
2 Assault Frigates
2 Gladiator
2 Rebel Squad
3 Imperial Squad

I want one more Rebel squad, so I can get 6 each A, B, & Y

Wave 2:
Start with 1 of each

Then eventually a second of each, and possibly a 3rd Rogue and Villan.
