Right, one quite resounding victory from the first game, time to try my luck with my first re-enforcements - an Academy Tie and a Alpha Squadron Tie Interceptor.
Seeing as I had the lower pilot skills, I set up in the corner, ideally to go head to head with the Falcon.
Unfortunately, Darryl set up in the centre, so I tried to turn the Ties in front of the Dauntless.
What a mess!
And it didn't get much better...
And in the confusion...
...drats! Nasty nasty Zeds. And my poor wee interceptor didn't even get to fire a shot!
So I fly the Tie out of the way while the Falcon takes on the Dauntless.
Right, time to get that Tie pointing in the right way.
But not before it takes a crit.
Oh come on!!
Ok, so...my re-enforcements did absolutely diddly squat!
And I've yet to significantly scratch the Rebels.
Ok. At this point I realised that I'd never take down Darryl's fat Han, so...roll out a Target Lock, Experimental Interface and Expose onto that Zed lurking in the back.
Next turn, after taking chunks of that Headhunter...
Boom! Courtesy of Expose. Great card on a Devastator, I tell ya.
...next Zed. Boom!
And then, time was called. On final count back...I won by one point!
Still, a win's a win!
