Imperial Builds for X-Wing... And anyone looking for 40K stuff/Motorcycles?

Imperial builds…  Something VERY unconventional when compared to the winning builds I am seeing.  I see a LOT of the Imperial Aces and Emperor/Aces lists and the Crack Swarms…  NOT bad lists in any way, just not really my play style.

This is just straight Ordinance…  I want to run it at least once.  A neat ship, and I honestly think it is at least as good as the K-Wings.  I’ve kitted it out more as a Bomber than anything, but I find it amusing that I can use Autothrusters and a FCS on it…  Only 1 Green Dice, but I should see it come up as an Evade more often than not.  Proton Torpedoes and Concussion Missiles along with the FCS should give me a decent base to fire from…  The 2 other TIEs are just there to keep things off of the Punisher to allow the missiles and bombs to do the damage…

REALLY waiting on the Imperial Veterans to come out.  The TIE Defender will get SO much better, and there will be more Pilots.  Stele and Ryad along with the titles should make for an interesting list…  NOT a lot of room for more stuff, so the TIE/fo Omega Leader is about the best fit for the remaining points.  Been flying that a fair bit and it is solid for the points.  Like the way the Defender flies but the Heavy Laser is “OK” at best…  It is expensive, but a solid ship.  Still playing with the Elite Talents, but really Predator and PTL are the ones that are almost guaranteed to be the ones on the “post Veterans” builds, and pretty much what I’ll use now…


Trading for some Warmachine stuff, getting rid of some STAW stuff…  Prizes I’ve won, so NOT dumping the game.  Wanting to get more players playing locally, so essentially giving away some decent things I’ll not use myself in any case…  Some of the ships from the “Enterprise” series I never actually watched in any case…  But Scott is a good kid, and I know he’ll actually get some use out of them.  I AM dumping a bunch of 40K stuff…  Will fill out my X-Wing stuff I guess as I have a LOT of Warmachine/Hordes…  Waiting on the new edition to drop next month in any case for that…  We’ll see.  Cleaning basement and garage…  STILL needing to be rid of motorcycles and likely some ancient firearms/ammo…
