I wanted to do the Bith this week, but we had already done it, so i chose his older cousin. This was the common man's super stealth creator. When universe cam out the best thing to do was to take some really good shooters, stick them behind a Viper and run this guy to keep them safe. So long as you kept the Vigo out of sight you were good. Due to the shift in meta, he has fallen a bit more by the wayside with the release of his better cousin the Bith Vigo and the Bacara super stealth, but he is still good.

His stats are not real great for a 24 point character, but you are playing him for the CE more than anything. The 18 DEF is really nice, but everything else is sub-par. Double doesn't do a whole lot of good when you cant hit much of anything for only 10 DAM. However, if you roll that 11 for init, then it becomes a whole new ballgame. Welcome med droid or baby Boba or gonk or bodyguards, or whatever. Anytime you can add figs to your squad after the game has begun its a great thing.

As i said his CE is very good, but you have to keep him out of LoS or your opponent will accurate shot him into oblivion. The republic and Empire can get around this with Mas, but everyone else will need a wall corner or something. This can be a great way to shield some power shooters or some key tech from your opponent, but keep in mind that droids and commanders will not be protected from accurate shot as they don't get his CE.

100/150pts: he really doesn't work here. You don't have enough room to bring in all the components you need and still have room left for your big guns.

200pts: Here he is very useable, but as i said, the meta has shifted away from him a bit. Anyone with stealth will do better with the Bith as evade will stay with the character until the shooter is adjacent instead of just within 6. Hiding behind vipers is always fun too because it makes your opponent take the viper out before it can deal with the shooters behind it. He is still very playable, but his uses have lessened with the releases of CotF and BH.
