Hello out there Attack Wing fans, all 3 of us on dakka.
Well I was surfing through the net and found that Boardgamegeek.com has the wave 2 expansions up on their site, and there are pics of the card board, so here is a breakdown of what we are getting in October.
Looks like the Defiant is:
3 hull points
And 24 points
And now the federation has a ship that can u-turn.
I can’t read the ship text from the pic but it looks like it has something to do with hits and crits.
-Sisko, captain, captain skill 8, 4 pts, can have an elite ability and is captain skill 6, plus he can re-roll 1 attack or defense die per round for free (not an action).
-Kira is the other captain I am sorry to day, I was hoping for Warf. She has a captain skill of 3 can’t tell the points but it looks like a lot of words on her ability.
-ATTACK PATTERN OMEGA, is an elite ability, that is only 3 points, and unique. It is awesome, if you score a hit on an opponent’s hull you can immediately search through the damage deck and put a “warp core breach” on their ship. OUCH! But it is unique so it will not be all over the place.
-Quantum Torpedoes, weapon, 6 pts, 5 attacks at range 2-3, and something about adding one extra hit, but I can’t read all of the text so sorry there.
-Jadzia Dax, crew, 4pts, disable to make an additional “2” move, forwards or backwards, but you cannot attack that round.
It looks like you also get another O’brian and Warf
The best news of all
-Cloaking device, equipment 4 pts, gives the ship cloaking, cost +5 for any other ship. That is right boys & girls if you really want you can now cloak your Enterprise D. Look out universe.
It really seems like a beefed up version of the D-7. It is even the same model, down to the color, which is odd. But it is the card board you want in this one. A lot of people may not be impressed but I think it will make a nice medium ship for the Klingons that right now only have heavy and lights.
-Chang, captain, captain skill 6, can take an elite ability, and 4 pts. His text is Action: spend your target lock to disable the captain card on the ship that was target locked. That is cool!
-ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH, elite ability & unique, 5 pts, Action: disable this card to make two attacks with your primary weapon at -1 attack die on each attack. Put that on a Vor’cha and you will be rolling 8 attacks!
-Kerla, crew, 2 pts, unique, when defending at range 1 may convert one “battle station” to an evade. That is very good for the Klingon’s.
-GorKon, captian, captain skill of 5, 3 pts, can’t read his text sorry.
Fifth Wing Patrol Ship (Jem’hadar fighter)
Ship ability, ACTION: when attacking this round roll one extra attack die, when defending roll 1 less defense die
-Weyoun, captain, captain skill 6, 4pts, can’t read the text.
-Luaran, captain, captain skill 3, again can’t read the rest.
-LONG RANGE TACHYON SCAN, equipment, 2 pts, when attacking at range 3, spend 1 scan token to force the enemy to roll 2 less defense dice
-Omet’Iklan, crew, unique, 5pts, May only be taken on a jem hadar fighter, Text: Whenever you attack you may convert 1 result into a hit result. This is nasty, he can convert either a blank or a battle stations then, and he does not take up an action.
-PHASED POLARON BEAM, weapon, range 1-3, 3 attacks, 5 pts, attacks ignore the targets shields and go right to the hull. OUCH! But it is 5 extra points on any other ship.
There are 2 more Jem’Hadar crew, and a piece of equipment call SUICIDE ATTACK that I can’t read.
0 shields (that’s right even the named ship has 0, so you better be cloaking)
Ship ability: You may cloak if you have no active shields, whenever you do cloak, roll 1 attack die, on a “battle station” result you take 1 damage.
I am assuming that the generic cannot cloak, due to the fact that it has no text, but I can’t see its action bar.
-Valdor, (wonder what the Romulans named after him), Captain, Captain skill of 5, 3 pts, ability: When attacking and your ship is not in the enemies forward arc you gain 1 attack die.
-CLOAKED MINES, there is a lot of text there and it is really tiny so sorry you will have to wait on that one.
-POLARIZED HULL PLATING, equipment, 2 pts, when you ship is hit you may convert one crit into a hit. Very Nice for 2 pts.
-NUCLEAR MISSILES, weapon, 3 attacks, 2 pts, range1-2, may reroll one blank result.
I have to say the Praetus is a little disappointing but it is a 22nd century ship so it should be crap compared to what else is out there. One the bright side it has 2 attacks, and comes with some good cards, granted most of them would work better on other ships. Down side is it only has one named captain and one generic. It also looks like this can take weapons so it may be a little better that the science ship for the romulan players who want a cheap light ship.
Well folks that’s about all I can read from the pics, so discuss.
