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
