When I started playing X-Wing nine months ago I gravitated towards rebels. Although I bought pretty much everything, I found Rebels more inspiring, easier to get my head round, and more forgiving on the table. I went to my first tournament with the classic Golden Daggers. For those of you not down with the build names, this consists of 2x Gold Squadron Y-Wings with Ion Cannon Turret and 2x Dagger Squadron B-Wings with Advanced Sensors (AS). This was very strong prior to the release of Imperial Aces and all the wave 4 shininess, and I won with four wins out of four, including an incredibly tough final against four ion cannon Y-wings. Then Imperial Aces came out and everyone started flying Imperials, and I started to lose. A lot. Since then I have struggled to get back into rebels.
However, last week I finally found something to make me adore Rebels once again, and I think it's really, really good, so I wanted to share it with you guys.
