As I explained to my son I was paying just over 30 points for something that could change a dice roll every turn, shoot maybe 2 times if I'm lucky during the course of the game and if the opponent is schooled in the art of basic flight it's pretty easy to focus onto it and remove it from the game (possibly at a cost of getting smashed by two TIE Advanced at the same time).
With Maarek shooting last in my squad the idea was that hopefully between Vader and Juno they would have removed the shields from a ship allowing his pilot ability to kick in a deal the critical that I want. Although it just didn't happen in this game I'm determined to ensure I have the opportunity to make it happen.
The game wasn't anything special really, I eventually won and only Vader and Juno were left limping around in TIE Advanced with a lot of tape and glue holding them together. I think Maarek only got two chances to shoot before having to bank away but it wasn't enough to ensure his safety unfortunately.
I will be taking either this list or the Emperor/Vader/Juno list for a run on to the league on Friday night but I'm unsure which one at this stage.
Thanks for reading.
