The Fang E522 Assassin Droid---Fringe

Cost---32

Hit Points---100

Defense---16

Attack---+8

Damage---20

SA:

Droid (Woohoo!)

Double Attack

Programmed Target (After setup, if you have this character in your squad, choose any enemy. This character gets +4 attack and the accurate shot special ability, both against only the chosen enemy. Effects that modify accurate shot also influence attacks against the chosen enemy.)

I’m a big fan of all droids, and the assassin droid is no exception. It has 100 hit points for its cost, which is average. Its defense could do with some improvements, as could its attack. Damage is standard.

Its special abilities are what make up for its failing stats. Double Attack is good, and so is Droid. And this mini isn’t meant to be a follower for commander effects, so Droid helps it quite a bit. Programmed Target is an interesting new ability. It not only gives it +4 attack, but ACCURATE SHOT. This can be huge in this mini. It can snipe Med-droids, medics, commanders, whatever. However, you won’t see this one in 100 or 150pt games, as there usually aren’t medics, or commanders. Another bonus to this mini, is that it actually would fit quite well in a droid squad---add in a battle droid commander, Wat Tambor, etc. and you might have yourself a nice squad. Try it out and see if it works in your squad. ;-)

100pt: 2 (not that good for 1/3 of your points)

150pt: 2.5 (still...not that great)

200pt: 4 (with Wat Tambor, battle droid commander, etc. Plus, it can snipe commanders, medics, etc.)

Pose: 3 (no pros or cons)

May the Force be with you.

WavesBlade E-522 Assassin Droid

Hp:100

Def:16

Atk:8

DMG:20

SA:

Double Atk: Atk twice.

Droid: Immune to Crits, Not subject to CE.

Programed Target: After Setup, choose one enemy piece, This character gets +4 atk, and Accurate shot against that Enemy.

Let the Reviewing begin....

Stats: HP:100, I like the health, it will let it go out and relentlessly hunt it's Target.

Def:16, Eh it's a Nonunique droid, they all have low Def.

Atk:8 (12 against target) Again It's a droid They usualy always have under 10 atk unless boosted by a effect.

DMG: 20 the usual.

Abilities:

Double is always good.

Droid: eh Imune to crits...

Now for Programed Target, +4 atk, and Accurate against it's target. A Real assassins ability. This is the ability that makes this figure good.

100 Pt:3/5 It can be good, considering most people usualy play beatstick figures and foder to get in your way, Hunt that piece down!

150 Pt:3/5 Gets a little better.
200 Pt:4/5 This is were we play this Figure!
Sculpt: Very nice sculpt i like it.
Flavor Text: Best flavor text ever!
