Sith Dragon

#3 Lancer Droid

The perfect State fair food - Droid on a stick!  Okay, maybe not so edible, but this piece was actually my # 2 piece of 2008.  It may be a bit high, but this is one of a couple pieces that have really wreaked havoc on the gaming scene.  By itself it isn't much, but with the load of droid commander effects and abilities as well as pawn of the dark side from Sidious, and you get one deadly strafe attacker that can hit for a lot and when all is said and done, is out of attack range and safely in hiding again.  Its one weakness is going to be disruptive, but outside of that, it is a deadly piece.  Coming only one to a $40 scenario pack, they are hard to get a hold of in multiples, but they are well worth it.  It is one of the pieces that is forcing troop armies to the rear of the play line and shifting it to beefier, lower activation squads.

We are almost there.  There are only two figures left.  Have you guessed what they are?  Tomorrow, we look at the best of those who cannot be seen.

3. IG Lancer Droid


            Ah finally we’ve reached the final leg of the top 10 minis of 08’ beginning with the top 3.  And the first entry of the top 3 is the IG lancer Droid.  I personally haven't played the IG or faced it.  I however do not want to face it as I have heard stories of it compiling massive amounts of damage while taking little damage.  But many pieces do that?  So why all the praise it’s due mainly to the fact that with GG, DAC and the Dart Sidous CS, This piece can do 80 damage at +14 attack without taking any AoO’s.  That’s pretty beast but thrown in speed 12 and he can do the above damage to nearly the opponents entire squad that is very game changing and is one of the main reasons swarms are on the downturn.


            100: 2.5/5 NOT enough points here if your try to put in GG, DAC then you ‘ll 3-4 act’s and while the IG is good if your opponent can get close enough to hit it.  It isn’t going to be pretty and basically Grevious is 57 points of paper if Bane gets close to him.


            150/200: 5/5 plenty of points here that you can use GG, DAC, the IG, Sidious and still have room left for droid filler which I hear is pretty hard to beat
