Prime Opponent Sean and I decided to try out a 400-point game on the suggestion of many friends of ours. We got to work building lists and it was joyous! Having an extra 100 points really gives you a lot of flexibility! Sean ran the Rebs, and I piloted the Imperials. Sean had lower points and elected to go first. He chose "Intel Sweep" from my objectives.
Sean chose his naked Assault Frigate to be his objective ship, while I chose Corruptor.

The final tally is really ugly for the Rebels. Imperials score 75 from the objective, and destroyed 206 points worth of the Rebel fleet. The Imperials lost 3 TIE Bomber squadrons for a total of 27 points, making the final Margin of Victory 254.
*400 points was fun! The battle felt much more involved, and the last few turns weren't just a handful of ships flying away from each other! I look forward to trying more.
*Intel Sweep can be nasty with 3 VSDs, BUT I don't think Sean thought about how to counter it until after a turn or two in. I'm sure he won't let me pull that one over on him again!
*Nebulon B's side arcs, man - they're crap.
*That terrain from Space Rocks is SO GOOD. It really made the table look perfect. Seriously, go order some. Free shipping, and 10 percent off with coupon code "IFF2015".
