I recently won a prize in a small tournament.

I could get a small ship with it or get a strong discount for a medium.

I have 1X of each ship of first 4 waves..thus i miss:

Nebulon B pack
CR 90 Pack
Victory SD pack

Since they were included in the starting set.

Should i get one of them or buy some other duplicate?
i Don't plan on going to any serious tournament but i have to provide mostly enough ship for both empire and rebels to play with friends.

An Assault Frigate mkII is a very flexible ship that can be kitted out as a gunship (with Ackbar), a carrier (with Garm), etc etc. It can be relatively cheap, or not. Having two opens up a lot of fleet archetypes for the Rebels.

Well we tend to use more Liberty since home one is boring ...

But maybe its useful anyway.

also are any of the pack with the same ships from the starting box any good?

The VSD comes with the very excellent Flight Controllers card, if you like the squadron game.

The Nebulon comes with XI-7's and the very awesome Yavaris and Dalvation titles. Yavaris is very strong right now, paired up with some wave 4 cards (Fighter coordination team and flight commander). Salvation is always good. And it comes with Xi-7 turbolasers.

CR90 comes with Jaina's Light, a great title useful in almost any fleet.

So take your pick. The Nebulon has probably the most useful cards overall if you like playing them.

CR90s also have Leading Shots, which is a nice upgrade - especially for big ships.

I love Nebulons with a Liberty. The more the better.

That's awesome - I completely missed the fact the Int. has that card.
