This is one of the best new pieces in the game. But
how can this little guy be as good as Vader and the
Fetts? Simple he has more to offer the team than the
others do. This little guy not only dwarfs his
rodian cousin, but will alter the game more than any
piece since thrawn.
Stat wise he is better than his rodian partner. He
costs 4 pts less, +1 ATK, and +1 DEF. With his
advantageous and micro you Can get him up to a +14
twin attacker for 20 DAM! Although he does not have
mobile, evade is better because once you run out of
cover, mobile does you no good, where evade will
continue to work. And all this only costs you 20
While that is good within itself, its his CE that
will be huge! Stealth followers will now have evade.
This is everything from Saesee and Shaak, to
Commandos, to Biker scouts, to a myriad of other
characters form this set that have stealth. Evade is
huge becuase it is a forceless deflect and can
really extend the life of a character.
100pts: This is not the format for commanders. This
is the realm of the beat sticks and with the 100pt
game dominated by Jedi, this Matrix wanna-be doesn't
200pts: Here i think we are going to see a LOT of
this guy for people that like stealth. It makes
Saesee and Shaak harder to hit as the can force
reroll their evades (3 attempts if ran with CS
Yoda). Commandos can now survive an early Bacara
loss. As well as many other options. In 200pts i
REALLY like this guy.

Sun Vigo (BH)
Commander Effect: Followers within 6 squares with
Stealth gain Evade.
Wow, looks like Neo has it all. I mean, some pieces
will look cool or have sweet stats, but this thing
has both! Truth to tell, I'm diggin' the trench
Okay, for stats he is pretty nice being non-unique.
50 HP is... meh, but his DEF and ATK goes above
standards for a 20 PT piece. DMG of 10 isn't too
cool, but its a good thing he has Advantageous
Attack (I think I spelled it right). As for effects,
nothing bad about him whatsoever. Evade and Stealth,
as well as Mobile Attack will make him nearly
invulnerable to shooters, Twin Attack and
Advantagous Attack helps deal the damage, and
Micro-Vision helps when the enemy gets too close.
Also, just to put a cherry on top of this sweet
piece (although I don't suggest eating the piece),
his Commander Effect gives Evade to Stealthy
characters. Although that sounds cool, Nom already
does that. Nonetheless, he'd be good for the
commandos just in case they leave cover, or if you
don't want to run Yuuzhan Vong altogether.
Nonetheless, for a non-unique, he's nice!
In 100 PT, he'd do okay, but in a Bane and Vader
enviroment, stick with something else. In 200 PT,
good with a squad of stealthy characters. Love the
matrix coat, too.
In 100 PT: 2.5/5
In 200 PT: 3.2/5
just assume that we’ve all made the obligatory
Matrix joke about the Bith Black Sun Vigo and move
on. The BBSV, as he’ll be known by brevity-conscious
players, is a fantastic piece who was recruited by
Morpheus to be the Chosen One and deliver humanity
from the clutches of the machines – dammit!
With Mobile Attack, Stealth, Evade, and a healthy
Defense of 19 with 50 hit points, he’s probably the
hardest 20 points your opponent will ever have to
kill, especially since he’ll rise from the dead when
Trinity declares her love for him – crap!
Advantageous Attack and Twin Attack mean he can
actually put 40 points of damage on an unactivated
target, despite his humble Damage rating of 10, and
Micro-Vision helps him punish enemy Agents that try
to get past his Stealth by taking over the code of
other imprisoned humans nearby. Sorry; let me get a
grip here. I can finish this.
As if all that wasn’t worth your 20 points, he is a
Vigo after all, meaning a high-ranking member of the
Black Sun criminal syndicate, and naturally has a
crime-friendly Commander Effect. In this case, he
helps his fellow Stealth units by granting them
Evade and eventually dying in a transparent Biblical

The Bith Black Sun Vigo is a great piece and more...
and Black Sun squads will definatly see lots of love
for him. Let's take a look, shall we?
The starts aren't competely horrible for a 20 costed
figure. 50 hitpoints, while on the low side, does
have that extra 10 that will help greatly.
Furthermore, 19 defense isn't bad in a long-shot,
and neither is +9 attack with that 20 damage.
Advantegeous Attack is a good ability. +10 damage to
make him a good 30 damage character is always a nice
thing to have. All you need to do is have him
activate first, and have him shoot. A pretty nice
deal, in my opinion. Additionally, thanks to
Micro-Vision, he gets an additional +4 attack to
units that are within 6 squares making him a +13
attacker for 30 damage TWIN ATTACKER (which, as much
as I have playtested, a superier ability.)
potentially. Combined with Mobile Attack, this means
that he can shoot at someone for that extra +4 and
then bolt out of there quickly. He also as Stealth,
which is a good thing with Mobile Attack... and
EVADE. You saw it first from Han's review yesterday,
and this ability turns this guy's 50 hitpoints to
MUCH harder to kill.
To make things worse for your opponent, he also has
a commander effect that grants followers witih
Stealth Evade as well. Besides being good in a Black
Sun Xizor army, this CE also makes sweet sweet love
with the Republic. Combine these with Mas Ammedda
and Republic Commanders (probally Sev, as he is my
favorite =P), and you got yourself one heck of an
army. Believe me, those Commandos do need Evade with
thier 30 hitpoints.
This is one of the better 20 points or less
commander effects, for sure.
100 points: 2.5/5 He is a commander, but he is also
a lethal warrior on his own too. Being only 20
points, his commander effect isn't too hard to make
use of, but he'd probally still work best as a grunt
200 points: 4/5 Brilliant commander effect with good
fighitng abilities equals a solid piece. No
Sculpt: 5/5 I have actually yet to see one of these
in reallife, but the sculpt looks amazing on the
internet. I dont know why... perhaps I just like his
pants or something.
