Everyone has been looking at the Rebel Transport and Tantive IV and coming up with fun Epic Play builds and other ship crushing tactics. But what are we missing?
Having picked up my Epicly Huge Correlian Corvette/Blockade Runner/Tantive IV I was comparing it to the recently released Rebel Transport with a view to its value in “normal” play.
Lets be honest, we are all collectors and chances are, if you play X-Wing you will pick up Huge ship at some point. With this in mind I was going to do a review of the upgrade cards and the additional pilots in the Transport and whilst I will cover some of the stand out cards/pilots in a later article I mainly wanted to cover one rule that comes with both Hugh ships that I have not yet seen discussed.

So, jumping right to my point. Why spend the money on a Huge ship that you may only use in epic format once or twice or even not at all if you are a loyal son/daughter of the Empire?
“Players may use the CR90/GR-75 ship as an obstacle instead of as a Rebel ship during a standard game.”
