Today we close out the week with the fallen
prophetic son himself. Sith Ani is one of those
pieces that is actually pretty good, but you don't
see very often. The hardest part of using Anakin is
finding the right support for him.
Stat-wise he is decent - not great, but still pretty
solid. They all end up being just below where they
should be for 39pts, but then again he has access to
some nice help. The attack is bolstered by the
loner, which is easy to achieve with a little Thrawn/swap.
Force powers are pretty much standard dark side and
Anakin. The thing that confuses me is that if Anakin
is the chosen one and strong enough to defeat so
many top level Jedi, why does he only have 4 force
points? Anyway, Force grip can be a nice grunt
killer if used properly, but that is about it. He
keeps his standard riposte and is a great way to
keep inflicting damage on the other person's turn.
Sith rage makes Ani a 30 DAM attacker, which is also
100pts: While not a bad piece for this format, he is
just a hair too fragile to make much here. Teamed
with RS Emperor, they can make a nice 1-2 punch.
They are going to have problems with the likes of
the top squads, but outside of that they should do
150pts: Here he works very well. You can run any
number of combos, but his best team is what is
referred to as Baby B&B. It uses the basic B&B
strategy, but frees up some more points. Its easier
to get loner into effect, so basically Ani is a
double attacking +17 for 30 DAM.
200pts: Actually, Ani is one of the few characters
that i would say takes a bit of a dip in
effectiveness for 200pts. He just doesn't have the
synergy with enough of the other pieces to be truly
dangerous compared to many of the squads that form
up in 200. His advantages are unlimited force points
from RS Emperor. Of course you have Thrawn, but
after that it drops off pretty quick.
He is a solid piece that can be a lot of fun to run.
