So the regionals in my area are on tomorrow and i'm getting a bit nervous (probably anxious is the word) about it. what do you think will be the prominent lists there? my thoughts are the commonwealth defenders will have a strong presence and maybe triple you boats.

Armies:
: 500

: 4500pts

Imperial Knight: x3 (2 gw Knights and 1 converted Acheron knight, wasn't going to pay Forgeworlds price.)

Purging heretical mould lines.






Lots of mindlink, manaroo with various others, palp aces, the new Upsilon list that I can never remember the name of, trip bombing K-wings and a few Falcons. Seems to be the most common lot of cookie cutter lists at the moment.
I have not really heard of many U-boat lists since the nerf although one just took out a regional in the States.

What are you flying?
Oh and good luck!

If you do face the popular Asajj/Manaroo/Fenn Rau list, I would suggest gunning for Asajj/Fenn first, hard. Manaroo on her own is quite easy to handle.

I've been found out!

In all seriousness, have fun, would be interested to hear what it is after the regional..

Shadowrun is the best game ever. It's the only thing I have ever played in which I have jumped out of a shot out van with a chainsaw to cut a flying drone in half before leveling a building with ANFO assisted by a troll, a dwarf, an elf, and a wizard.

Pretty much this, and i'd add some TLT lists, the tomax/qikdraw/other list, chirpy-deci plus ace, and maybe double vcx

good luck, let us know how it goes

If you're going after Asajj, try to come at her from multiple angles, forcing her to spend her action on rotating arc, instead of defensive or offensive actions, and make sure you approach her without stress, so she won't be more resilient to damage. The list banks on people flying in formation across the board to screw itself up and be less effective through bumping or bad placement. Split up and try to get there at the same time, but on different vectors.

Very much looking forward to hearing how you do. I like the list. It's similar to one that I saw doing very well at a regional here in the states (somewhere in Texas IIRC).

I think that one had sensor jammer on the shuttle and no engine Mk II or stealth device...

Well a bit of an update.... two straight losses. Absolutely nothing I could have done about them.

First game was Horton, lothal ghost with the shuttle all tlt spam.
Second game was RAC with hot shot, pred, gunner with Ryad.

In the second game I lost Jax in the first game turn. Did a 5 straight with a boost (should have PTL for an evade but figured I was safe). Then he charged in with RAC 3 bank with a boost. Range 1 against Jax. He stood no chance...

So at the end of the day came in a lousy 46th out of 58. In my opinion my list wasn't weak but damn my rolling was. At times couldn't hit or evade anything.

Was there a ship you were losing first more often than not?

Not really. It was sort of split between Jax and the shuttle. I think most just saw them as more of a threat than Stele.

Well, without them Steele doesn't work as great, right? So in a sense, they were right.

No not really. Stele is pretty deadly in his own right. He took out 2 y wings on his own in my fifth game. He would have survived and I would have won if I had remembered autothrusters on Jax, just a freaking rookie mistake

I know what you mean.

During my last game using the Palattani (I wonder if that name will catch on) I kept forgetting Latts Razzi on Asajj. Which is a pretty big deal.

Maybe the power level ofthe list is just not high enough for the tournament scene.
