Ok after Sundays falling out with the two ship build tonight saw me determined to run the ultimate Saga duo no matter what.
Luke - veteran instincts, shield upgrade and R2
Han- Chewie, gunner, marksmanship, clusters, falcon
Although on day I will go with assaults I think, for those pesky swarms.
"Kid we have guests arriving, hope you've got your best shields on. "
"Roger that, R2 make sure those adjustments you made are on line.... There's no need to be like that. '
"They're trying to cut us off, I'll pull them out, you loop round the back of me and hot them. "
The advantage of moving last is that you can try and catch your opponent out. The downside is they may get in your way. I set up in the opposite corner of the swarm in the hope that having to veer left would break Mr Christian's swarm up. It spread it out and two tight turns later saw Luke bearing down on their flank.
The amount of dice a mixed swarm can bring to bare is frightening. Mid game after only taking one ship out and damaging a few others Luke was taken out by one exceptional round of firing from the swarm. My crappy defence dice rolling didn't help but still 6 hits getting through was exceptional. It was then left to Han.
Han watched as Luke's X-Wing veered from the conflict, spiralling down towards the planet's surface. Chewie raked out the fire making sure non of the imperial ships followed him down.
Only Han could manauver the Falcon through asteroids like he did. Fire took down a couple more ships while an asteroid accounted for another.
But Han was disconcerted by the flashing console. The Falcon's shields were gone and they were taking heavy damage. He had a chance to take them out but it seemed remote now. Han checked the scanners, still two left, he'd never signed up for this rebellion business. Damn girl !
It had been very close. Two great rounds of firing had taken Luke out and another did 6 damage to the Falcon. Apart from that the list worked well. I don't think it is a comp winning list. It will never take down a swarm.
But it is Star Wars day so it's gotta be done!
