Speed 2 Light Spirit Ignores all terrain. Cannot open
doors. Cannot attack or be damaged, and does not
count as a legal target. Does not provide cover. At
the start of the skirmish, choose a Unique allied
character with a Force rating. That ally gains Force
Renewal 1 and Mettle [If this character spends 1
Force point to reroll, add +4 to the result] while
within four squares of this character. This
character is defeated if the chosen ally is
defeated. An enemy within six squares can spend 1
Force point to defeat this character; save 11. This
effect replaces that enemy's attacks.)
The best 8 points since Mas Amedda! Obi, force
ghost has breathed some new life into rebel teams.
He has no stats to speak of, but has one heck of an
ability. Simply put, you pick one character with a
force rating and as long as they are within range of
Obi, they gain force renewal and mettle. In a way
this is a hard review. There are so many options
with this piece i could write a five page report and
still not have covered them all. Top choices often
tend to be Champion Luke, Yavin Luke, Any of the
Hans with a force rating but especially Han
Scoundrel. Obi has now made this mediocre piece
Also, an item of note, is the absence of the word
rebel in his effect. Obi can be tagged onto the
likes of Aurra and Komari if you should so choose.
For Aurra anyway that is a major boon!
The downside to this piece is that Obi only has
speed four and the character that he is attached to
has to be within four squares to use either effect,
so plan your Obi movements carefully. The perk is
that Obi can't be killed unless an opponent wants to
close within 6 and replace their attacks for
something that isn't even guaranteed. Not getting
attacks from a force user within 6 is generally
going to mean trouble from the rest of the squad.
The good thing is that pits, walls, difficult
terrain, enemy characters, etc cannot slow him
down. There can also be an advantage to placing him
in a place that makes your opponents move a few
extra squares because he is sitting in the spot they
need to be in to attack.
100pts: At only 8 points and combined with the
general low cost of the rebel characters, he can
find his way here. His help to Scoundrel Han and
Champion Luke is enough that he is worth it.
150/200pts: Here he fits in beautifully. Just
figure out which major character you want to use him
with and then practice with him to get the moves
right. He is a great figure and should be in any
rebel squad that is not using RS obi, the land
speeder, or has a force user, which i don't see
happening with rebels.
Due to vacations and Gencon this will be our only
review this week, and there will be no reviews next
week. We will be back on the 21st with more minis
and i will have an overview of Gencon's happenings.
