    I don't think the addition of a tiny arc is gonna fix a ship with a mediocre dial and no movement abilities.

    Not sure what hijinks he's up to, but a buddy just asked me what single small base ship I'd take in a fight, no point limit.

    I immediately answered with a fully decked out Miranda K-Wing (Shield Upgrade instead of A-Slam, but I can see the counterpoint of not getting shot at all) along with C-3P0 and bomblets. My second pick would be a beefy Scurrg bomber.

    What would you take? One small ship, no points restrictions.

    my first impulse was a standard Corran because I love him so

    but without any other ships I think I'd rather take 4-lom

    probably like:

    4-LOM
    Cad Bane
    Bomblet Generator
    Advanced Sensors
    Glitterstim
    Mist Hunter
    Tractor Beam
    Shield Upgrade

    I'd do A-Slam because someone's (lots of people?) gonna run Soontir and being able to double-move + drop bombs is how you kill aces.

    Whelp. Finally assembled the Tantive IV epichanger. My printer kind of spat on printing it, but I don't care. I got a little sloppy on the lid and needed an extra patch piece.. but now that it is assembled, good LORD is it solid.

    They are announcing these two ships as their own wave, that comes out a quarter later than the previously announced ships. Also pricing the Silencer at $30 because it comes with doubles of 5 cards is risky. Yeah every Imperial player wants a pack with 2 autothrusters in it, but... this is really expensive.

    It's kind of prohibitive of fielding multiple :(.

    On the other hand, it has a slick list of upgrades in their (if they'd thrown Pattern Analyzer in too...). The Advanced Optics is almost definitely Comm Relay for focus. The elite looks like it can hit double evade for an action, which is powerful (especially if you stack it with a banked focus token, autothrusters, and why the hell not sensor jammer to really pile on the defenses).

    I'm absolutely getting at least one of those. Honestly I may just get two anyways depending, since my usual store goes deep on tournament payouts, 5/8 still comes out ahead.

    Edit: And the bomber's not bad either since it packs a nice spread of bomb options and the excellent system/tech pairing. It gives rebels access to the FCS/Sync combo as well... on a fucking turret. Which was SLIGHTLY uncalled for, honestly, but it tops out at PS 7 with no elite slot, so it's probably fair when compared to the TIE/sf doing that. Ship is worryingly cheap to field though. I want to see someone go nuts with cluster mines on em (I assume you can't get more than 12 mines total that way, but that ties the Punisher... actually the Punisher does it better anyways since it can Minefield Mapper more of em out).

    Need to know what that bombing mod does. A lot of people panicking over Nym interactions with it.

    We haven't seen him pilot anything yet. He's the force using son of Han Solo, with Skywalker blood. He probably learned how to fly from Han and Chewbacca when he was a kid, with Luke teaching him how to incorporate the force. Maybe some lessons with Uncle Lando or even Uncle Wedge here and there too.

    Be glad he isn't PS11 with that background :P

    Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface - far beneath, in some cases - but I'm sure there's more to Ketar than meets the eye!

    It's definitely high on the list. For all the awesome Star Wars ships though, there's a lot of turds too.

    I think the worst thing about it is that it isn't even a cool looking kind of ugly (like an A-10 or a B-wing).
    It just looks bloated and ungainly.

    I feel like star wars ships are ugly because they're very utilitarian. Utility ships are how you get things like the A-10 and X-wing (cockpit, wings, guns), or ridiculous ships like the K-wing. If this is a bomber, it should be a cockpit with a bomb bay, like the TIE bomber or punisher.

    Which is what it is - that large fin on the bottom of the "T-wing" is full of bombs, and it has two bubble turrets like the old Republic Gunship.

    True, but they could have just mounted a large cylinder underneath, instead of mimicking the look of a B-wing. Never understood the B-wing either, honestly.

    I like the idea that the B-wing started life as a heavy weapon test platform that was retired pre-clonewars.
    You'd want to keep the heavy experimental weapon as far from the cockpit as possible, and the small wings halfway up the main wing were there to serve as extra protection should your experimental cannon go boom in an unanticipated direction. Given their location, they'd protect the engines as well as the cockpit. Of course, given the experimental nature of the weapons, you'd want the ship heavily armored as well in case the smaller wings weren't enough (test pilots being a limited resource that's hard to replace).

    The Rebellion, eager for any fighter they could get their hands on picked up the B-wing hulls, reengineered the heavily armored hulls with some heavy (though not experimental) cannons, some ion cannons and as many torpedoes as they could cram onto it and called it an anti-cap fighter.

    Of course, that's not supported anywhere in canon or legends, but it makes more sense to me with the design of the B-wing than does the current explanation of "Reclusive Mon Calamari ship designer built it from spare parts in his copious free time while alone on a planet renowned for being hard to fly ships on", or the old version "Admiral Ackbar designed the fighter in his free time while not admiraling" .

    My X-Wing collection has entirely outgrown the Sabor Army Transport bag I originally was using. I'm debating buying another one and more trays of pluck foam or buying the Feldherr bags that are already precut with the proper shapes. The Feldherr trays for the most part mirror my collection, so I'm thinking of getting some even though they're a little pricy. Any opinions or experiences? For what it's worth, I did try out the X-Wing hanger cut-outs and I didn't want to put forth that much effort.

    I think sleeved upgrade cards fit fine 2 per slot in standard Magic pages (so 18 to the page), which are dirt cheap. I may just go with a binder, but I actually do like shuffling through and such. I just need room to keep all the types in separate stacks.

    Also I really don't want to slot all of my upgrades in a binder. So many cards.

    I had a real problem doing this - the FFG sleeves would catch in the ultra-pro binder pockets and rip/damage.

    So I invested in a 100-pack of ultra pro mini sleeve sheets. I liked them so much I took my upgrades out of their individual sleeves.

    SirWillibald has a couple papercraft (And now foamboard) options for storage of the sleeves, including dividers.
