Talk about having it all. Holy crap is this guy ever
loaded! The stats are pretty normal for a 17 point
cost. his DEF is a bit higher with his ATK being a
bit lower, but all decent stats for 17 points. Given
the number of Imperial Commanders at his disposal,
its about as good as its going to get.
As i exclaimed earlier, the SC has just about
everything you could want from a 17 point soldier.
He has Stealth for protection, Satchel charge for
the doors, and grenades 20 if your opponent sets up
a good use for them or the DEF is just too high.
While his base offensive stats are not real great,
once you add in the fact he has cunning and deadeye,
along with double, add in Thrawn and you end up with
two attacks at a +13 for 30 DAM each. Not too shabby
for only 17 points. You have access to Thrawn's
+3/+3, auto init for the cunning, and swap, Veers
for accurate, and the Rodian for protection from
About the only downsides to this piece are that a)
He is not a trooper, so he misses out on the new
Vader's CE, and b) He is kind of fragile even with
40 HP when facing down multiple attacking Jedi.
100pts: I have seen a build where these were used in
conjunction with Thrawn and the squad looked like it
could do some damage. While i won't normally
recommend this piece for 100pts, he can be playable
in a tier II world.
150/200pts: Here he can be quite good. 200 obviously
allows for more commanders to help him out, but in
150 i have seen him used very well in a squad called
opportunistic bankers that relies only Piett giving
opportunist to a bunch of stormies. Since you have
Thrawn and get to go first, it makes for a nice 1-2
punch in an otherwise opportunistic squad. It isn't
always the easiest piece in the world to work into
an Imperial Squad, but it is a very good and well
rounded piece worth finding a place for in most
Oh man these little guys are the swiss army knife of
They are highly versatile and work extremely well
when they're played correctly/ They have the ability
to do 60 damage to an unactivated enemy with a +10
attack.I mean +10 attack isn't the greatest but
since t hese little suckers are only 17 points that
pretty darn good.
These guys work well in any point value as long as
they arre played with they're good buddy grand
admiral thrawn. with thrawn on your team you will
win init 95% of the time so that you can always get
they're cunning attack bonus out of the way. Then
you can use a simple storm trooper to get these guys
into position and then unload 60 damage on an enemy
then swap them out. One way that these things have
been played recently with with Grand Moff Tarkin.
That way you can get them to deal a whopping 120
damage to a single target and then get them out of
guys, after a long summer at camp and getting ready
for school I have managed to come back! Sorry 'bout
we review my favorite piece in the game; the Storm
Commando. I coined the phrase of calling them the
Swiss Army Knife of this game, and for good reason
too. They are the most versitile little guys out
there! 17 points gets you semi decent stats,
Grenades 20, Satchel Charge, Double Attack, Cunning
Attack, Deadeye and Stealth. That is a lot of stuff
in one package.
Combined with there
Best Friend, Grand Admiral Thrawn, they become a
Tier 1 squad at any point format in the right hands.
The ability to double attack and do 60 damage at a
+13 attack with Thrawn makes them a little
Combine that with the
20 defense and Stealth (Again with Thrawn) and you
will notice that despite their low 40 HP, their
defensive properties more than make up for that.
Another very important thing to realize with these
is that with Grand Moff Tarkin and Thrawn 2 of them
may do 120 damage in one phase. Yep, pretty crazy if
you ask me!
100:) 4.5/5- In the
squad "Swiss Army Knife" that I made involving 2 of
these buggers and Thrawn (with the addition of
Tarkin!) they are amazingly powerful. They defeat
JWM's, Han Solo Scoundrel and many other things with
ease and can easily compete with the best. (See the
150:) 5/5- With more
support here they are absolutley awesome.
200:) 5/5- The higher
the point total, the better they are. dnemiller and
billiv15 have both made
great builds with these guys and you should
definatley check them out!
