In this article I am taking a look at some of the various builds you can use, and the pilots abilities.
Starting with the lowest Pilot Skill in the bunch the Bounty Hunter
The Bounty Hunter is a pilot skill 3, not that high, but he is great value for the points. He has no inbuilt pilot abilities but has access to the cannon, bomb, crew, and missile upgrade so you can add some real variety to him.
I think though my own favourite build for him, is just plain. For what you get for the points cost its hard to beat.
Next up in pilot skill is Krassis Trelix, weighing in at Pilot Skill 5
The issue with Krassis is only that to get the best from his ability you need to take a secondary weapon pushing up the points. He is still a solid choice though that I like a lot.
Next we have Kath Scarlet, she comes in at Pilot skill 7
Kath gets a pilot skill increasing her usefulness, in this build I have added a mercenary co-pilot. Which when attacking from range 3 changes a hit into a critical, so If your opponent cancels it, they take a stress, if not they take a crit. It's a win-win situation! To add to the idea of sniping at range, I added the modification Stealth Device, which gives an extra defense die until you first take damage. so at range 3 until your hit its 4 dice! which is pretty solid. Adding the Pilot Skill Expose adds more firepower at the expense of an evade die as an action, but at range with some good arc dodging it can really add some punch to her attacks.
The last pilot is of course the Fett man. Boba comes in at pilot skill 8, the highest in this expansion pack
Overall the Firespray has some great pilots and a huge variety of builds available to it. Have a look yourselves, see what you can do and share it with us!
I love my Firespray, from Boba to Bounty Hunter its a great looking and hard fighting ship.
