MISSION FOUR: Shadow Caster
Monday 08/29/2016 – Format Announced
Tuesday 08/30/2016 – Sign-Up Begins
SATURDAY 09/03/2016 – Mission Four Event Night
(7pm check in, 8pm start)

Format: Three 60-Minute Rounds.
Points: 110 points
Special Build Rules: Builds can only have Large-Base ships.
Special Table Rules: None.

The signature starship of the young and ambitious bounty hunter Ketsu Onyo, the Shadow Caster was agile and powerful, but lightly shielded, trading heavy ray shielding for speed. Both the ship and its pilot make their way to X-Wing™ in the Shadow Caster Expansion Pack, along with three other pilots and twelve upgrades that afford you myriad options for outfitting your Shadow Caster with different crew and illicit upgrade combinations. Finally, the ship boasts a mobile firing arc, which offers some of the advantages of a turret, even while preserving a distinctive – and more point-efficient – play style.
