Paul ran three Arc Fighters both games, but changed the fidlies in between.
The first game was basically a joust off. Thing is, my list is better at jousting. I found the APT to be just to much work sans Guri. I didn't get to use it at all. At the beginning, I was worried about the amount of shields and hull staring back at me, but while he came to me for a bit of jousting, things went very well in my favor.
In between games, I pointed out that he may not have the best squad for jousting. So, to begin the second game, he spread a little more. He still moved in towards each other, allowing me some jousting. I did do some splitting because of his formation, and wasted my ion torpedo on an Arc that was on an asteroid that ended in a position that I couldn't capitalize on without landing on myself. He did a great deal more damage this time. In the end, he ran into an asteroid that would have given me a free turn of shooting, though he didn't take any damage. However, it wasn't needed, as I finished him off that turn.
Both games were a ton of fun, and I was glad to pull out the Scum again after a little while. The list seems strong, but I have already made some changes. The Starfighter drops the ion torpedo for a flechette torpedo, which gives me enough points to give the K Fighter an Ion Pulse missile.
This weekend looks like we will be playing Firefly, but I hope to get it on the table again soon. We shall see if I manage to get some pictures and write up a report of my win *smirk*
