Nien Nunb is
one of the most reviled pieces available for Star
Wars Miniatures. This is not because he's awful—he's
not. But he is entirely unique in that he is
entirely Unique. As in, that's all his card says. He
has no beneficial abilities of any sort, just the
ability that says, "Hey, bounty hunters, have a
bonus to your Attack when shooting me!" (It also
says that you can't have more than one in your
squad, because, let's face it, it would make winning
a little too easy.)
To be honest, though, there's nothing wrong with
Nien. As mid-range shooters go, he's right on par
with others in his point category (though Boba Fett,
Young Mercenary is much, much better than he is). He
just doesn't have anything to distinguish him
particularly from others in his class, and you
usually will just take one of the cheaper bounty
hunters to get the bonus to Attack against other
The one thing that Nien has over those cheaper
bounty hunters is that he's a Rebel and not Fringe.
With Captain Antilles seeing more and more use, it's
a little tougher to just throw Fringe pieces into
the mix. You might also want to include Nien if you
don't have a better candidate for Yoda of Dagobah's
Light Tutor ability (which only works on Rebels).
Really, though, there's not a whole lot to say about
Nien, probably because his card doesn't say much
about him. Just remember that there are much worse
pieces in the game (Princess Leia, Captive, I'm
looking disapprovingly in your direction).
