Pondering Store Championships Lists

Just pondering some lists for the Store Championships this weekend. I’m currently painting the named Red Squad members (even though none of them survived our big 300 pt game a week ago), so I’m thinking about playing with a few more X’s than usual.

Red Squad WIP

The lists:

Garven

Biggs (R2-F2)

Red Squad

Red Squad

= 100 pts

Decent PS bid, and Biggs can survive a bit with R2-F2 and a focus.

Wedge (Swarm Tactics)

Biggs

Rookie

Rookie

=98 pts

Decent PS build in a roundabout sort of a way, slightly less defense though. 2 pts without much good use for them, maybe an R2 unit.

Garven

Biggs (R2-F2)

Chewbacca (Draw Their Fire)

=97 pts

Decent bit of synergy, but no real good use for the last few points.

Luke (R2-D2, Draw Their Fire)

Biggs

Rookie

Rookie

=100 pts

Mostly tanky, not very punchy. Shame I can never make a list I like with Luke in it, as he’s one of my favorites when looking at pilots in a vacuum.

Really not too sure what I’d prefer. The meta has a big spread (swarms, elite trios, tons of Krassis and Soontir Fel clones, Saber/GSP squads that mostly turtle up, etc.) and so I have no idea what to expect. Part of me wants to run a Chewbacca Falcon just because my sister brought me back a t-shirt of a surfer Chewie from her most recent tropical jungle adventure! Chewie with a pair of B’s is one of the few lists I have run multiple times lately (4-0) so that’s probably my super lame default. Vader shuttle with a pile of Obsidians (maybe a Saber flanker?) if I go Imperial.

Open to any and all suggestions! I’ll also post up some pics of the Red Squad members as I continue working on them. Have a few photos at home, but I am not at home as I write this :p
