Toady we look at the other Anakin in the set. One i
find vastly underwhelming. For 35 points, the sweet
spot for most solid Jedi, you have an okay 80HP, a
very lack luster 17 DEF,a horrible 7 ATK and 20 DAM.
He has pilot, which means he can get penetration -
big whoop. Flight is good so he doesnt provoke
attacks of opportunity on his strafe attacks. Strafe
is his main gimmick. Couple this with twin and it
SHOULD be a deadly combo. What i dont like is that
horrendous attack of a 7! Being able to do 100DAM
doesnt mean anything if you can hit you target.
Granted you can add in Gen Obi Wan go make him a
21DEF and 11ATK, but even then that isnt that good.
Against most Gen Obi squads you ahve defenses in the
mid 20s as do Jedi with lightsaber duelist. The
problem with Gen Obi Wan and Anakin is that Ani will
generally NOT be near an ally when you strafe.
He has four force, which you are going to spend
rerolling attacks. Otherwise he has defelct, which
makes him defendable.
100/150/200pts - He CAN be played in any of these,
but he wont work well in any, save 200 where you can
dilute his cost. It all comes back to horrendously
low stats on a 35 pt figure. Drop his cost to 28-30
and he would be much more attractive, but there are
so many other better options for the mid 30pt Jedi.
Anakin Skywalker on STAP
K, today we take a look at yet another
Republic deep strike threat. While this one is no
were near as good as Yobuck or R2 he has some nice
stuff. First off he has Twin over Yobuck and Flight
so he can go through a group and kill a whole group
like Yobuck but take no damage and 30 HP swarms
don’t merc Ani on STAP like they can Yobuck due to
twin. However don’t quite bank on him hitting all of
those attacks because this character has only 7
attack which is terrible even for 35 points. Also
just in case someone does see him he has deflect.
Some of the aforementioned things are bad but two
thigns really stick out to me. K this did Ani get a
crappier STAP then Battle Droid from CS because
while the one from CS had 30 damage this one has
only 20. Also while the CS STAP had no speed upgrade
I am pretty sure giving this one a speed upgrade
would be smart and it would still be balanced.
As far as how playable this piece is I
would say he isn’t to playable outside of a sub for
Yobuck which outside of 100 you should never due
that and even in 100 I would try to get Yobuck in
there. The real thing though is for the point cost
they really could of beefed this piece up and the
upgrades would be logical and still keep this a
