X-Wing testing for League and Bloomington SC...

So, testing for the next 2 weeks events and the initial test was…  A good learning opportunity.  Ran the Rebel Nym and Miranda.  But I set them both up…  Badly.  Miranda was set as a missile boat with a bunch of bombs.  Nym was set as a TLT platform…  With bombs.  Ran him right into the triple Skurrg and unsurprisingly he melted immediately.  Miranda blew past them and…  IF she had equipped the Advanced SLAM she would have bombed the whole line…  But no…  Nym needed to be either the TLT platform skirting the edge or a knife fighter just bull rushing in.  And Miranda needs to be either a bomber or a missile boat.  I tried to “Swiss Army Knife” it and it worked as well as the Swiss Army Knife usually does… 

So, Version 2 will be something completely different:
Dengar Nym (100)
Captain Nym (Scum) — Scurrg H-6 Bomber
30
Veteran Instincts
1
Autoblaster Turret
2
Bomblet Generator
3
Accuracy Corrector
3
"Genius"
0
Havoc
0
Ship Total: 39

Dengar — JumpMaster 5000
33
Push the Limit
3
Extra Munitions
2
Cad Bane
2
Unhinged Astromech
1
Cluster Mines
4
Engine Upgrade
4
Punishing One
12

So, S&V Nym set up as a brawler to hunt and kill Aces like say, Fenn Rau…  Dengar is Dengar with Cad Bane for some bombs…  Taking advantage of the Nym ability to set up the Bombs to interdict incoming fire.  Not 100% sure on this, can take PTL/EU in place of VI and drop the EM/Clusters on Dengar…  PTL on the Skurrg is risky, not a LOT of Green on the dial, but PTL/EU/Barrel Roll makes it insanely maneuverable…  Once.  Then I have to be careful if I want actions again.  But really not having Actions is not TOO horrible…
