Rule 34 : If you're leaving scorch marks, you need a bigger gun!
After my failure at the 2016 French national championship (3 losses out of seven games) I realized that I needed a new list. The swarm is still playable, but you can no longer afford any mistakes and the fickle green dice can always derail the best laid plan.
With the new X-7 title defenders have almost Soontir like defense and with twice the health they are much less vulnerable to crackshot. They are also very resilient to my main advantage: blocking. I was able to take down shields and leave a few scorch marks, but not destroy them.
What I needed was a bigger gun, able to reload and go the distance while keeping the same output. In other words, a Y-Wing with twin laser turret!
