- Soontir Fel w. PTL, Shield, Stealth
- Turr Phennir w. VI, Shield, Stealth
- Omicron Pilot w. EU, Ion Cannon, Tactician
Overall, it worked pretty well except and suffered principally from poor decision making and bad dice rather than any inherent weaknesses in the list itself. The Ion Cannon proved to be a big bonus and actually paid off extremely well something it hasn't done in many friendly games for me.
|Game 1 and my first ever against a Donut which turns out is scarily agile|
|Got lucky early on when I managed to kill the B-Wing in the first round of shooting. Also managed to Ion a big ship for the first time sending it into an Asteroid.... but then the Donut hit back and took down Soontir with Turr following soon after|
|The final act of the game resulted in me trying to Dog Fight the Donut with my shuttle which proved to be horribly difficult. It basically flew in circles around me and slowly whittled me down before finishing me off just before time|
|Soontir & Turr Phennir arc in for the kill - but their fire proves horribly ineffective|
|Corran Horn Ion's into an Asteroid shields down - the A-Wings start to follow the Shuttle but can't seem to hit it and my Interceptors begin to position themselves for the kill|
|The A-Wings became horribly fixated on killing the shuttle - perhaps wanting to avenge Corran Horn's demise. This allows Soontir and Turr to close in and finish them off... Final result a solid win to me and not a single ship lost|
|Final game of the day vs. eventual 100pt event winner and club mate Murray Griffiths whose Donut was just nasty. I flew badly Murray played extremely well flying his ships really effectively and he just blew me away very quickly|
So 4 games all against Rebel lists which was cool and all of those lists were ones that I hadn't come across before and which diverted a great deal from the Meta that was on show at the Regionals a few weeks previously. 4 games for me 2 tight close loses, 1 absolute pantsing from Murray and 1 win.
A-Wings seemed to dominate the event there were 9-10 in all and they're actually not bad when used properly. Just loved the Shuttle and I'm still going to get another one sooner rather than later.
