CE: Rebel trooper followers within 6 gain twin
This is the greatest piece to have no followers to
use on. Maybe not quite, but close. His stats are
pretty much irrelevant. With a +8 for 10 DAM you
aren't going to use him to go chasing down Boba or
Vader even though he does have twin.
The rebel captain is going to be used specifically
for his CE. any character of the rebel faction with
the word trooper in its name gains twin attack. the
problem here is the total lack of quality grunt
support for the rebels. The only fig even remotely
worth using this on are the elite Hoth troopers. Add
in Lando, Hero of Tanaab and they make for a nice
mobile squad. Add in Leia, Senator for the extra
movement, and add in Admiral Ackbar for some added
Now at this point we start to run into a problem.
All these effects are very good, but they all
require the commander to be within 6 of the
follower, making life very crowded. If you have
enough elite Hoth troopers it can make a pretty fun
squad. I ran it once and did pretty good with it,
but it is not easy keeping everyone within 6 of all
100pt: realm of the big boys. stay away here
150pts: here it is playable, but more in a fun game.
Use him and Lando and round out your points with
elite Hoth troopers and you get a decent fun squad.
200pts: here you can get a decent team. Use the
above build but now you can add in Ackbar, any Han,
or the new Leia for troop regeneration. Again, the
rebels really don't have a cost effective grunt to
make good use of the Rebel Captain, but hopefully in
A&E we will get some more. He makes a good fun
squad. Keep it at that level and he can be worth
Rebel trooper followers within 6 squares gain Twin
100 pt Squad: 3/5
150+ pt: 4/5
Pros: Brings a much needed commander effect to the
Rebel Faction. When partnered with Han Solo Rebel
Hero or Lando Calrissian Hero of Tanaab, your rebel
grunts will see their combat effectiveness improve.
His deadeye may enable him to dish out 40 damage.
Cons: Alone, El Capitan is a lackluster grunt piece
with average defense and attack scores.
