I was at the local hobby shop in Champaign this weekend and picked up two of the X-Wings. I assume they are about 1/144 scale. Also in the series were the Tie Advanced, and Tie Defender. I am not sure if they make an Tie Fighter in the snap kits or not. I can always use the Tie Defenders as fighters if they do not make the figher in scale.

I can scale up the maneuver templates and range guides with no problems. I have a work up for a decent scale battle of 101 point and another for 150 points that could pretty well be done.

They were a good price at $6.95 USD each so that is fairly cheap. I would have to step up the painting a knotch or two.

Here is the match up I am looking at:

101 Points each
Rebel (4 X Wings)
Wedge 29 pts
Luke 28 pts
Red Sqdr 23 pts
Rookie 21 pts

Imperial (1 Tie Adv, 5 Tie fighers)
Darth Vader Tie Adv 29 pts
Mauler Mithel 17 pts
Backstaber 16 pts
Black Sqdr 14 pts
Obsidion Sqdr 13 pts
Academy Pilot 12 pts

For a larger battle of 150 points I have this plus three options for the Imperial players. There are other make ups for the rebels but I like this one.

150 Pts Rebel (6 X-Wings)
Wedge 29 pts
Luke 28 pts
Briggs 25 pts
Gavin 26 pts
Rookie 1 21 pts
Rookie 2 21 pts

150 Pts Imperial option 1 (eight ships, 2 Tie Adv, 6 Tie)
Darth Vader Tie Adv 29 pts
Markek Steele Tie Adv 27 pts
Howl Runner Tie Fighter 18 pts
Mauler Mithel Tie Fighter 17 pts
Dark Curse Tie Fighter 16 pts
Back Stabber Tie Fighter 16 pts
Winged Gundak Tie Fighter 15 pts
Academy Pilot Tie Fighter 12 pts


Option 2 (9 ships, 1 Tie Adv, 8 Tie)
Darth Vader Tie Adv 29 pts
Howl Runner Tie Fighter 18 pts
Mauler Mithel Tie Fighter 17 pts
Dark Curse Tie Fighter 16 pts
Back Stabber Tie Fighter 16 pts
Winged Gundak Tie Fighter 15 pts
Academy Pilot Tie Fighter 12 pts
Black Squadron Tie Figher 14 pts
Obsidian Squadron Tie Fighter 13 pts

Option 3 (9 ships 1 Tie Adv, 8 Tie)
Darth Vader Tie Adv 29 pts
Howl Runner Tie Fighter 18 pts
Dark Curse Tie Fighter 16 pts
Back Stabber Tie Fighter 16 pts
Winged Gundak Tie Fighter 15 pts
Black Squadron 1 Tie Figher 14 pts
Black Squadron 2 Tie Figher 14 pts
Black Squadron 3 Tie Figher 14 pts
Black Squadron 4 Tie Figher 14 pts

TIE Defender or TIE Interceptor? I can't find any models from Revell of a TIE Defender.

My bad Tie Interceptor. I can never keep the two separated. I do think they or someone made a snap kit of the Interceptor.
