Thanks! I guess I did have two waves combined in my head (maybe due to the tiny-ness of those waves)

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Isn't wave 3 coming in the 3rd quarter, and waves 4 and 5 (and the new campaign) coming in the 4th quarter? They're really stacking up a lot of Armada stuff this year.

Having the Ghost is awesome... With most of the wave coming from Rebels, another reason to get excited about season 3 trailer

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Thrawn!


Also will pay closeR attention to other ships in the series now!

Who picks it the symbols well to let us know what those squads are about, we have rebel tie fighters that look a bit like x wings (3 HP, swarm), but I'm not great with the identifiers.

Pretty sure waves 3 and 4 are available next week--August 11, I believe. The thinking is that wave 3 was probably slowed down a little to meet the ready-sooner-than-estimated wave 4.

Phoenix One is straight outta Rebels animated series. Basically the flagship of the rebellion at this era.

You mean the Z95 and E-Wing?

The small gripe I have is that I wish the fighters were in a different package than the irregulars. I only want two of each irregular, but I want a large number of fighters.

I would have been thrilled if it were 3 of each fighter and 1 of each other...

Where does Star Wars Rebels occur in the timeline? Is it after the Clone Wars but before The Force Awakens? Will these ships and fighters be "legal" in keeping with the current Waves or is Wave 5 a new story line arc with no cross-overs? I am confused.

Rebels takes place between episodes III and IV, in between the two trilogies and long before the force awakens.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I guess this means seeing ISD's on the same table as Wave 5 would make sense (not that it matters but ... guess I am a little OCD).

ISDs are in Rebels too, so definitely no issues there...

I hear ya.

I'd actually prefer to avoid all the rebels stuff altogether and just do Original Trilogy and the old EU... That's what I grew up with and for the most part love. And I don't like mixing eras, either.

This...and likely what I am sticking with (for the most part) - had to get the raider because FFG made it (and it's in X-wing with more detail)

Curious if FFG will ever produce the dreads...and then hope they will match Mel's dreads...

Yup, probably. Only issue there is no official bases/base plates to go with those squadrons...

Same wish here... I want Dreadnaughts.

It's not a problem, you never use all the squadrons bases for a 400pts game.

Both the "big" ships in this wave are leftovers from the Clone Wars. Both were Republic vessels. They're used a good bit in the Rebels series.
