Having had a quick peek, there are stats for the various protagonists. He's also gone so far as to produce two PDFs; one in 'mint' condition, the other weathered and aged slightly, which looks pretty much like all the WEG books I've seen in reality.

>> No.51646402

X-wing or Armada?

Armada: great filler, slightly less efficient than transports but then you get guns on them. Great for pushing squadrons or using repair crews behind an ISD to keep it alive. The Imperial cheap activation ship. You should probably buy at least two.

I think you mean X-wing though.

Probably the second best epic ship, behind the transport, again. But again, you actually get weapons on it. Also the ability to carry four ships past the initial joust in an epic game is a huge boon, to then push them out in the epic movement phase ready to fire. The cheap way to do this is with four black cracks. The scary way of doing it is with bombers.

Imperials have some fantastic crew to throw in the thing too. My personal favorite is take Tarkin, a Fleet Officer, and Comms booster with Automated Protocols. The ship hands out four focus tokens a turn and can still reinforce the front.

The important thing about building Epic ships though is to not overload them with upgrades. I wouldn't take more than 15-20 points of upgrades on the support ships.

Also it appears I don't have a Gozanti in my art collection. Weird.

>> No.51646585

A person can shoot and kill a TIE fighter with a blaster pistol if I'm not unable to read in FFG

>> No.51646635

It's possible but unlikely with the scaling in WEG, but in FFG it's near impossible with the scaling, you'd need to do at least 30 damage to even scratch the fucker.

>> No.51646639

I've meant Armada. Didn't know there are Gozanti in X-Wing. And what about light cruisers? Are they a good buy as well?

>> No.51646664


RAW, the AT-ST's armour value means that the Rancor cannot harm it.

This is because the Rancor 'weapon' stats are calibrated towards fighting personal scale threats, not vehicles. Personally, I'd give the Rancor Breach 2 on it's claws when attacking vehicles, to simulate it WORKING LIKE A RUDDY CAN OPENER.


Usually, this would not be possible. A TIE has 2 armour, which translates into a Soak value of 20 from personal scale weapons (unless I'm also unable to read). This puts it well out of reach of even the most successful blaster pistol hit.

Yes. I much prefer WEG's scaling system to FFG's, it's much better for having people vs vehicles.

>> No.51646794

Epic ships are a thing. They're pretty fun.

I think Light Cruisers, because they're all sold out. Mine are in the mail, because the only place that had any was on the other side of the country. The Imps needed a decent small ship that could shoot at range, and it looks like they got it.

Sadly haven't played much with Wave 5/CC yet. I plan to fix that the next few weeks.

>> No.51646797


You are correct. This means that an AT-ST's main gun (which deal 5 damage to vehicles) would deal 50 on a direct hit to an individual.

This, in some ways, makes sense, as if that cannon is supposed to mess up a heavily armoured position, it will make a small crater out of a person, assuming it can hit them.

I think it's safe to skip X at this point.

Ys still have cheap turrets, Bs are great jousters and even As can be decent swarms, but Xs (outside of Biggs and already in the core set) are terrible even in casual games because of how expensive and inflexible they are.

Well, as you said they are in the core set so it's not like you're not going to get at least one.

>> No.51650757

The problem with that is I'm not sure if any of the players are knowledgeable in Star Wars to really choose one that's not in the books, and there's not much in that price range beyond the YT-1300. Also, I wanted to have the first session be based around stealing the ship, so them designing it doesn't really make sense.

They would go to a crowded area and make a speech about the atrocity the empire did to them and have them draw attention. Upon being detained by the authorities they would either personally or remotely detonate explosives with the intention of killing people while making others question the Empire.

So, watching a lot of Rebels, I have to hazard a guess about stormtrooper armor. I think it's kind of like military-grade ceramic armor of the present in that it can take a few hits (1.65 for ceramics, I dunno about star wars) and keep the wearer alive, if not completely knocked flat and injured due to the force of the round.

I mean honestly, it could be that Rebels is a kids' show, but most of the downed stormies are still moving after they get shot with blasters, mostly like they got the shit kicked out of them.

And I mean, it kind of makes sense... armor's supposed to stop some bolts and it dampens explosions, but it doesn't guarantee that the guy is doing okay inside after keeping him alive.

Just late-night wank. Thoughts?

Rex with Stealth gives you an agility 4 ship that can place suppressive fire. But what's good about the Scavenger Crane, is that you can (in theory) repair the Stealth Device after taking a hit. Provided of course you don't explode spectacularly in one volley.

>> No.51658083

With Rex you fly him around pretty much freely taking evade actions and shooting at whoever is lining up a big shot on your ghost so that they have to choose between losing a die to shoot at the ghost or shooting at a 4 green + evade tie and if they shoot for the TIE and hit and you survive you have a chance to get your stealth device back later with the scavenger crane. You lose out on giving the Ghost two actions for Lando + evade but you're reducing the incoming damage by 1 die so it's functionally the same as having an evade.

With Ahsoka and Recon Specialist you'd be doing pretty much the same thing Cracken would be doing except Cracken can only give an action if he's able to shoot while Ahsoka just needs to have taken a focus and if somehow the Ghost isn't in danger but Ahsoka is you can use her ability on herself to get effectively two actions and maybe even barrel roll to arc dodge higher PS pilots.

>> No.51658084

1) you can't use a free action to do the same action twice in one turn so landi can but an extra evade on the VCX
2) the VCX moves like a potato and most lists will avoid it

you will only reliably get 2-3 evades on a fat ship with 0 defense dice, that's maybe one volley of soaking power.

TLTs don't cut it in this meta (esp against defenders or palp).

Kanan is pretty low PS and the ship turns like a boat so that front arc isn't gonna be doing much work 4 atk or not.

Armada is a fun game. If you already have a bro to play with, go for it.

>How do I do ?

One of everything isn't a bad call. Make sure to get another set of dice and a movement tool so you can make a smaller one. Will seriously save on frustration.

Get at least three of the flotillas and two of the small ships. You only need one core, but will want the individual expansions for the ships that come with the core because they have different upgrades. After that buy what you want. Want two ISDs? Go for it. You can make a decent list out of them.

Also probably want at least two of each squadron pack and CC for the extra squadrons. Corellian campaign also comes with campaign rules, which could be a lot of fun to play with your brother, since you'd have an overarching thing going on.

Getting people at FLGS can sometimes be a challenge, but check online at the FFG forums to see if anyone is in the area.

>It is also even more horrendously imbalanced than most FFG games

This is patently, objectively, false. There has never been an errata for Armada the way both X-wing and Imperial Assault have had. At the Regional I went too, literally every ship was used besides one of the generic squadrons.
