Struggle of the Gunboats. November 14, 2018

Had a tourny finally, didnt do too well, but learnt a bit.

This was the list I ran.

Nu Squadron Pilot — Alpha-class Star Wing 35
Advanced SLAM 3
Xg-1 Assault Configuration 0
Tractor Beam 3
Ship Total: 41
Half Points: 21 Threshold: 4
Nu Squadron Pilot — Alpha-class Star Wing 35
Advanced SLAM 3
Xg-1 Assault Configuration 0
Tractor Beam 3
Ship Total: 41
Half Points: 21 Threshold: 4
“Redline” — TIE/ca Punisher 44
Advanced Sensors 8
Proton Torpedoes 9
Ship Total: 61
Half Points: 31 Threshold: 5
“Whisper” — TIE/ph Phantom 52
Juke 4
Ship Total: 56
Half Points: 28 Threshold: 3

Most of the games were reasonably close. 2 were on stream, one vs dual firesprays, the other vs Redline, phantom and Sai. The last game I won vs Sabine in the attack shuttle, wedge, ten and jan. I managed to wipe sabine out in one round, then it was dog and tail for a bit till I got wedge to fly off the board thanks to a perfect tractor shot.

The Phantom I found was the weakest link, more so probably cause I ended up putting it in bad spots – some times had some bad luck (first game 3 shots vs 5 defence dice being a good example).

I feel like the Nu’s did very well in most games, their slam manoeuvre allows me to close up quickly and pour fire into enemy ships, while my other ships move into position.

Nu Squadron Pilot — Alpha-class Star Wing 35
Fire-Control System 3
Homing Missiles 3
Advanced SLAM 3
Os-1 Arsenal Loadout 0
Adv. Proton Torpedoes 6
Ship Total: 50
Half Points: 25 Threshold: 4
“Redline” — TIE/ca Punisher 44
Proton Torpedoes 9
Ship Total: 53
Half Points: 27 Threshold: 5
Nu Squadron Pilot — Alpha-class Star Wing 35
Fire-Control System 3
Homing Missiles 3
Advanced SLAM 3
Os-1 Arsenal Loadout 0
Adv. Proton Torpedoes 6
Ship Total: 50
Half Points: 25 Threshold: 4
Colonel Jendon — Lambda-class T-4a Shuttle 46
Ship Total: 46
Half Points: 23 Threshold: 5

Im gonna try this out when I get a chance, it should be quite an effective hammer and anvil list, redline and the Lambda should be effective anvils, while the Nu’s bring it around.

There is another option, but has less ships…

Rexler Brath — TIE/D Defender 84
Juke 4
Fire-Control System 3
Tractor Beam 3
Ship Total: 94
Half Points: 47 Threshold: 4

It does have less health, but rexlar could prove to be an ace in the hole especially with his manoeuvrability – in saying that however the health is a lot less and is susceptible to being one shotted.
