Ten-Eyed Man Nien Nunb is one of the most reviled pieces available for Star Wars Miniatures. This is not because he's awful—he's not. But he is entirely unique in that he is entirely Unique. As in, that's all his card says. He has no beneficial abilities of any sort, just the ability that says, "Hey, bounty hunters, have a bonus to your Attack when shooting me!" (It also says that you can't have more than one in your squad, because, let's face it, it would make winning a little too easy.)
To be honest, though, there's nothing wrong with Nien. As mid-range shooters go, he's right on par with others in his point category (though Boba Fett, Young Mercenary is much, much better than he is). He just doesn't have anything to distinguish him particularly from others in his class, and you usually will just take one of the cheaper bounty hunters to get the bonus to Attack against other Unique pieces.

The one thing that Nien has over those cheaper bounty hunters is that he's a Rebel and not Fringe. With Captain Antilles seeing more and more use, it's a little tougher to just throw Fringe pieces into the mix. You might also want to include Nien if you don't have a better candidate for Yoda of Dagobah's Light Tutor ability (which only works on Rebels).

Really, though, there's not a whole lot to say about Nien, probably because his card doesn't say much about him. Just remember that there are much worse pieces in the game (Princess Leia, Captive, I'm looking disapprovingly in your direction).
