Elite Rebel Trooper

General description:
Rarely does a unit's attack come even close to its cost and in the Rebel faction only one unit's plus attack score is equal to the cost of the unit... the Elite Rebel Trooper

Uses:
You really want to use this unit on mass in 100-point teams. If your opponent is using higher cost figures you'll have a distinct edge... as you'll be able to fire twice as often (or more) than your opponent. That's more die rolls with a significant boost to attack, +7. In lower point games, 100-point teams, the impact of extra troops with good to hit abilities becomes magnified. In high point teams you're better off with Elite Hoth Troopers because of their better damage and defense, but in 100-point teams the extra figures you can buy can be a real edge.

Strategies and game play:
Use these Characters with a Rebel Officer and Princess Leia, Senator. The officer can up your hitting ability and with the Senator you can move up to a door, fire and then move (using Leia's extra movement) to move back... closing the door.

Combos with other miniatures:
This character works well with the Rebel Officer and Princess Leia, Senator

Ways to counteract it:
The bane of this character's existence is Darth Vader, Jedi Hunter. The ten point damage reduction of the Dark Armor makes the troopers 10 points of damage useless.

Strengths/Pros:
Best attack plus per cost for the Rebel faction (in other words, they are cheap, but they shoot well)

Weaknesses/Cons:
Low defense (needs cover) and low damage (only ten points)

Artwork and aesthetics:
If you look carefully, you can tell the difference between Rebel Troopers and Elite Rebel Troopers. The regular Rebel Troopers hold their hands together on their blasters, but the elite figures use a staggered hand hold (one behind the other)... a subtle and nice touch.

Overall rating:
I give this figure a rating of 8
