Mini of the Day
Triple Attack; Vaapad-Style Fighting
The last fig of the week is an oldie but a goody.
While a bit expensive to use in any squad, he is the
most power of the Jedi, as it should be! This is
Mace Windu! Mace's stats are huge to be sure. He is
hard to hit and will take a beating when he does.
His attack is about as big as it gets without
modifiers at a +16.
When you get to his Force powers and abilities this
guy has offense to spare. He is a triple attacker
that can crit on 18-20, and to boot he can add an
additional 10 DAM from precision. If you feel like
running a Chagrian Commander, then Mace can turn
into a real powerhouse. I once took a full health
Shaak Ti down in a single blow because of all that -
A Chag boosted precision'd crit for 70 DAM. Not bad
for one swing.
On the flip side it is nice that Mace also has block
to help against opposing melee characters as well.
Another thing of note is that he is a follower, so
he can benefit from characters like Tarfful, giving
him an impressive +20 ATK, or Yoda where he gets to
reroll his blocks. This is one guy a JWM is not
going to eclipse.
100/150/200pts: I am putting them all together
because he is very playable in all three. The only
difference is what he is getting for support. His
cost is his only downside to any squad he is in.
With his HP and offensive capabilities, you really
cant go wrong with him.
If you are wondering about which Mace is best, then
i really don't think there is an answer. Everyone
has their preferences of course, but the nice thing
is that each Mace has their own specialty. This Mace
is for blunt force trauma to a single fig, plain and
simple. If your local meta-game is such that people
either run swarms of +40HP characters or multiple
beat sticks, RotS is great for being able to attack
every adjacent character twice. If you can use R2 to
land him a crowd, he can do some serious DAM. Gen
Windu is exactly that, a leader of others. His
offense is good as well, but his overall
effectiveness is going to be from his followers as
much as himself.
Mace Windu is the only fig where we can say we have
three great versions.
