The Lonesome Stranger
with a review of General Grievous, Supreme
Conveniently, I took a look at my Grievous, with a
sad, grievous thought, and said, "Wow, this piece is
(since the release of Champions, and Alliance, and
with the coming Force Unleashed) absolutely useless.
Having taken a backseat to units like Darth Maul and
all forms of Sidious in Separatist play, he should
only be used in desperate situations, those being
when the aforementioned pieces are unavailable, or
if you feel like losing. Though not worth the 43, he
does have what-used-to-be-impressive 100 HP, which
means he'd last 2 turns TOPS against the new
beatsticks, more likely one. The only redeeming
quality is his Commander Effect, granting Non-unique
droids an extra attack, which does come in handy for
Super Battle Droids, if you can manage to hit
anything with them. Time after time I tried to give
Grievous a second shot, but this was t ono avail.
For those of us who had purchased this figure with
the RotS starter (most likely the majority), were
disapointed at the fact, though a point higher,
Grievous never seemed to fight as hard or as
skillfully as Kenobi. Disappointed time after time,
never seeming to fight well enough. On top of that,
if you wanted to (in a 100 point squad) to use Super
Battle Droids, only 5 were available, making points
left over. At the time the best that could fit in
that were any combination of two: battle droid 4,
ewok 3, Geonosian Drone 3, Tusken Raider 4, Gran
Raider 4, and... well... that was it, and a few
sevens but they were horrible, need I remind of the
Twi'lek Scoundrel 7? -Sighs- Now we have a few more
choices like the Ugnaut Demolitionist and maybe the
Aqualish Assassin. Though I dwelled too much on that
choice, there really doesnt seem to be any other
that fits Grievous' unique (thank the deity of your
choice [or lack thereof]) talents. In 200 you could
throw Durge, any Sidious or maybe Maul to help him
out, but there is little/no hope for this figure.
Grievous gets a 1/5 in 100/150/200
He just stinks, thats all there is to it.
Grevious Supreme Commander
CE all non unique droid followers within 6 squares
gain +4 attack and double attack
This is one of the minor pieces of the three that
give the seperatist droids their power. This is
namly because of his cost. With 43 points he takes
up as much as a droid starfighter in walking mode.
he is key in a squad with battle droids in just for
activations. He gives them +12 to hit (this includes
battle droid officer and super battle droid
commander.) and double attack. This maximizes their
damage output. But if you don't already have battle
droid officer in you sqad I would suggest taking
grevious out for a Geanosian Overseer and an
100/150 1/5 droids don't do much here
200 4/5 only use him in mass droid squades where you
need +12 to everyones attack.
