I like this mini, because it gives luke some power
with speed 10 and mobile attack.
with twin attack, and non-melee attacks really helps
get the most out of speed 10 and mobile.
not to mention the amazing health of 140, the
highest hp of a luke, or obi wan.
its basically jedi on wheels, 2 jedi and a speeder
for 1 point less that tyranus, 2 less than luke cotf,
and 27 points less than luke jedi master with 10
more hp, a nice addition to any rebel squad.
with the release of a&e, as i am sure you all kno,
we recieved 3 amazingly useful lukes.
the plus 12 attack is pretty bad, but still is only
one less than luke cotf, but the hp more than makes
up for it.
generally, vehicles have less than usable stats, but
this one meets my standards.
Though difficult to work into a 100 point squad, it
is best used in a 200 point squad.
its force power jedi mind trick goes back to the
film, and alter does sort of.
lukes land speeder gets:
4.5 all around, except 100 at 3.5
Mobile Attack; Speed 10; Twin Attack; Unique (Obi &
Deflect; Force Alter; Jedi Mind Trick
Today we look at a surprisingly awesome piece from
the set in Luke's Landspeeder. A cool sculpt alone,
this piece finished 2nd in the Gencon Championship
backed up by Han RH. To the best of my knowledge,
all of the squads that ran the sled, as its called,
finished very highly.
Stat-wise, It has some pretty impressive stats for
not being on one of the big name Jedi. Backed up by
the abilities its a pretty complete package. Mobile
attack and twin attack give it some pretty nice
offense, and its speed 10 makes it all the more
I'd take this piece right here, but we haven't even
done the force powers yet! The sled gets a whopping
6 force points to put it in the elite class of force
users, and has some pretty good tricks to use them
for as well. The sled has deflect, so it has some
protection against shooters. Jedi mind trick can be
nice to try and activate someone and then get away
from them, and finally you have force alter to get
out of those nasty crits or lucky shots from grunts.
Basically Luke's landspeeder is the perfect Boba
Fett, BH killer. It pays to aggressively charge Boba.
Note the one thing this piece does not have is
flight, which is good because then it would be
seriously sick. It falls under the same category as
Darth Maul's speeder in not being able to clear the
100pts: I haven't seen this piece run yet, but i
wouldn't necessarily rule it out in this format. Its
speed is incredible as can be its offense if paired
with the right people. The one thing going for
rebels is that most of their pieces are pretty
cheap, so you can get a lot of tech and activations
into a squad.
150/200pts: This piece is equally good in these
formats, as finishing 2nd in the championships
proves. Just look at the support it gets now. Chewie
can add even more hit points to it. Princess can
give it another attack for a total phase damage
output of 90 DAM. Han can either give it
advantageous attack or can help it move 20 squares
and still get its twin attack off, depending on
which Han you go with. Overall this is a very solid
