This one is going to be a retrospective Briefing as things got a bit hectic for me while I moved house so the blog unfortunately got shelved for a while.
Another store champs in the FFG tournament system and as such the standard affair, 100pt squads but as this was a smaller store only 16 players and 4 rounds.
I managed to get a couple of games in at anther club X-Wing night so tried out a double YT list as I had finally found one that I quite liked. After the actual event I think it has to get renamed Dick Han.
Han Solo (56)
YT-1300 (46), Veteran Instincts (1), Gunner (5), C-3PO (3), Millennium Falcon (1)
Wild Space Fringer (44)
YT-2400 Freighter (30), Heavy Laser Cannon (7), Dash Rendar (2), Outrider (5)
I only flew it twice and had Anti Pursuit Lasers on the 2400 as the plan was try to bump anything that got into range one. I went with Dash though as I thought the probability of Decimators would be high and that would mean any and all hits would be damage dealing. Ironically the only game I lost on the day the Lasers would have really helped me out.
Again I knew the Dark Sphere lot were going so I had no delusions of wining being a casual flyer but with the smaller field I did fancy my chances at getting a dice bag and I was kinda hoping for a 2-2 record.
