Force 3 - Master Speed; Lightsaber Sweep
Here is a great example of a fig that is not great,
not powerful, but has still worked her way back into
game play. For 30 points, she really does not do
enough to be played over a JWM. She does have 10
more HP, but has a weaker defense and equal attack.
Both have double and sweep, but Luminara lacks the
defensive capabilities and offensive weapons of the
So why has she been seeing a bit more play? She has
something that the JWM does not - Master Speed.
With the release of Master Qui-Gon and General Windu,
people have started running running her simply
because she can keep up with them. That and her
stats for 30 points really are not bad even though
she should probably be a few points cheaper. The
double attack with sweep means that she does have
enough offense to warrant a spot in the squad, and
if played with General Windu, she becomes a triple
attacker that can cover a lot of ground very
100pts: She doesn't do enough here to be of value.
150pts: Here she can be played, but you will usually
be better off using either Depa or the JWM to help
cover against top meta builds.
200pts: Here she can see play as you have enough
room to build with. If you run her you will most
likely want to run Master Qui-Gon with her. By
herself she isn't strong enough to do much once she
gets up there, but once the two of them reach their
target, your opponent has something to worry about.
You can also add General Windu for a triple attack
option, or General Kenobi to extend that reach just
a bit more. She is a key opponent for what i have
deemed a JIS squad (Jedi interference squad). Run
her and Qui-Gon out to take on the attackers and use
a power shooter in the background to blast away.
Your opponent has to choose between the cannon or
the Jedi. Having to ignore one could be fatal, and
makes it a very tough build. Luminara's sweep is
also making her a powerful counter to the swarm
squads that are popping up.
