Fantasy Flight finally released the TIE Defender in the upcoming Wave 5.... but I wasn't satisfied with the stats. The Defender was more than just an advanced bomber. It was super fighter. Here are some custom stat cards a friend and I drafted, using RougeKnight's templates. Enjoy!

Many thanks again to RougeKnight for those professional grade templates!

Awesome pictures. Though double scatter would be al.ost game breaking on a blue/black bomber. Bombers that are absolutely immune to ships is too much. Scatter/Brace is more fair.

Shadow squad should be a lot more than 25. More like 28-29. The text you chose is super powerful as it just turns off literally any ace you face. Like a superpowered Dutch.

Royal guard should be 26.

Hey thanks for the feedback! Sorry I have not been back on for a while.

Upon playtesting, they are quite overpowered. I've reworked the stats a little but kept them expensive. Because of the expense and rarity, Defender pilots are aces in there own right.

I remember playing X-Wing Alliance on PC as a kid and even on normal difficulty, the Defenders were terrifying! They were faster, more powerful, and tougher than anything the Alliance had in inventory. Getting your sights on one of them was a chore, catching up to them near impossible even in a A-wing.

Well FFG finally added Defenders to the game, late 2016. So I guess this thread is obsolete... I may revisit this though if I am dissatisfied with FFG's stats. However it looks they gave it sharper teeth, a tougher hide, and a lower price than I had conceived!
