Titan X-Wing SC this weekend....

The Titan X-Wing Store Championships are coming up this weekend, and as it is looking VERY much like the Wave 8 stuff will not be here in time…  So I have a few other lists built:

KavilKCobra (100)
Kavil — Y-Wing
24
Twin Laser Turret
6
Unhinged Astromech
1
Ship Total: 31

Black Sun Ace — Kihraxz Fighter
23
Predator
3
Cluster Missiles
4
Glitterstim
2
Ship Total: 32

Talonbane Cobra — Kihraxz Fighter
28
Predator
3
Cluster Missiles
4
Glitterstim
2
Ship Total: 37



The first is all about offence, hit hard and fast…  The K’s are decent ships, nothing REALLY all that special, but the burst damage they could throw out should rip up any Y-Wing TLT lists or anything based around a big ship with log Agility dice…  It will I think struggle against a TIE swarm, less so against a Z-95 swarm and I suspect a well build Ace list will be a good fight, but I think I’m on the losing end of that one…  Not impossible, the list simply does NOT synergize or have any real tricks.

The Rebel lists all have Poe in…  Good solid ship, and annoyingly resilient if it is not focused on.  Mind, most folks know this now, so I tend to use it as a bait ship more than anything.  It works, but I am hoping it will live long enough to actually do something of course J  Or at least that it gets my other ships into position and does enough on the way down to get me a win…  Rebel Regen I might swap out R5-P9 for the R5-D8, I think that was a relic of a list where I had Ello Asty with that Droid, which might make a good swap for Miranda’s K-Wing…  But the list is based around just outlasting the other side…  Do enough to get in a few kills and survive the fight.  Bring big rocks and break up the Swarms…  Fun list, but not likely to get me a win against a top tier player with a good list.  VrillPoeGrey is just weird enough that it does well for me…  Fun to fly and one of the ones I REALLY like.  Swarms are a hard counter, but they WILL know they were in a fight.  Aces HATE this list, I designed it to take down those and it works frighteningly well there… 


Choices, choices….  Thinking my first or last one will be what I use…  I am most interested in the participation prize which they should have some 32 of, I am pretty confident I’ll be in the top 32…   And I have another month or so until the SC at the Gopher…  REALLY want to fly the Ghost there, but we’ll see…
