So I picked up the core and think it is a pretty neat game that'll serve as something different from xwing. I just don't know where to go next. I'm looking to get two new packs for both factions and keep them balanced.

Suggestions appreciated .

Thanks.

If you want to create fleets for both sides and not specialize, get at least one fighter pack for each side (to start; if you find particular squadrons you enjoy, you may need more), and one of each of the Wave 1 ships.

Or borrow some from fellow players to get the feel of the kind of fleets you'd like to make, then buy.

If money is no issue, then 2 of each expansion pack to include 2 fighter packs from each side.

If money is tight then one more VSD 2 GSDs, 1 AF Mk II, 1 CR90, 1 Neb-B and 2 fighter packs from each side.

I'd go with two AFKs not 1. Definitely helps the Rebels a bunch in 400 point battles.

Two new packs for each faction: Squad pack for each side, a Gladiator for Imperial and Assault Frigate for Rebel.
