CE: Followers can move 2 extra squares on their
turns as part of their move.
When i first started playing SWM, it was during
Clone Strike and i always used this guy. I really
had not touched him since until recently. Kenobi is
a piece that i have fallen in love with again. Not
only is he a solid character, but his commander
effect can be wicked in the right hands.
Stat-wise, He is a very solid mid-30 point Jedi. His
defense is a bit weak, but then again, he is cheap
and his other stats make up for it. The double
attack has to be standard for almost any Jedi to be
playable in today's game. Obi's force powers are
good as well. Deflect helps to combat the ranged
threat the Jedi face, and while not always useable,
his heal 20 has won me a couple of games and is a
It is his cost combined with the synergy of his CE
that make Obi-Wan so good. All of your melee
characters can now move an additional two squares. I
say melee because they are the ones that need it,
not the shooters. They can now move 8 and attack, or
14 and not attack. I played a tournament where it
seemed that two squares put every one of my
opponent's pieces in attacking range. I then played
a tournament a few weeks later without him where it
seemed like every piece was just out of range
because he wasn't there. It really makes a huge
difference to Jedi.
100pts: Sorry, not enough beef here.
150pts: He can be used here, but again he doesn't
bring quite enough to the table to be playable
either as a fighter or a commander.
200pts: Here he is awesome. He runs really well with
the master speeders, especially Qui-Gon. Obi will
usually be on of the last ones to see battle, so if
you don't have a better choice, give him the force
points. He then can heal a bunch more, or deflect
twice per turn. Squads where he stays in back is
where you will usually use heal more. Every game i
have played him, he is one of my last Jedi and
almost always at full health. With a spirit boost,
you can't ask for a much better late game figure
than General Kenobi. While not a must, he is very
good for Jedi in this format.
