Ratings:  Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale 1 being the worst.
3 ... average. 5 is the highest rating.

100 pt: 3
200 pt: 3




The Snowtrooper with E-Web Blaster is decent, but mostly because of the faction it's in, by which I mean Grand Admiral Thrawn's faction. It could be used without the blue man, but it would just seem so silly.
On first glance, we've got a 30 Damage Double Attacker for a mere 18 points. Holy crap. As is so often the case, however, that pesky second glance is what does us in. The E-Web has an Attack of +4, and a Defense of 11. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, this is an Imperial unit with a Defense score lower than an Ewok's. Yikes. Moving on, we see the ever-unpopular Speed 2/Heavy Weapon combo that all the cool kids are avoiding in droves.
Admiral Thrawn really is pretty Grand, though. With a wave of his hand (and probably a shout from Mas Amedda) he grants +3 to both the Attack and Defense of this misbegotten artillery piece, and can swap its position with any other Large unit (the Scout Trooper on Speeder Bike comes temptingly to mind, with its 24-square range). Presto! In 37 points, we've solved or at least mitigated every problem with the piece.
But a +7 to hit is still really low. You should probably have a bunch of low-cost shooters with whom to combine fire. Conveniently, the Empire has a few of those. You may also want to include General Veers, to grant that all-important Accurate Shot to this big ol' turret. But that's all the advice I'm going to give you; I can't design all your squads for you, you lazy lout.
Overall rating in 100: 1.5 (Thrawn is hard to use here, and consequently so is the E-Web)
Overall rating in 200: 3
