Today we cover the future of the Skywalker legacy -
and we thought Anakin had it bad. Cade is
definitely a beast, made even more powerful by the
fact that he is fringe. For 61 points you are
getting a lot of power, not too dissimilar from Fett
and other attackers of this level. Usually, power
attackers at this have one of two damage outputs -
high damage attacks or normal damage attacks and
lots of them. Cade is obviously the latter with
four possible attacks at two different targets. His
20 DEF is solid, and his 12 is a good start with a
possible 16 against uniques. The only thing that
Cade lacks is accurate, but then he would be really
sick and easily a 70pt fig.
Cade only has two force powers with a fixed amount
of force points, but they are pretty good. Cade can
take a bunch of damage then get out of the fray to
heal 40 DAM off of himself (or ally). Being able to
heal off 80 DAM is huge. The force push is a good
way to get out of range of big attackers that are
100pts: I havent seen him here, but being fringe he
can definitely find the right help to be
competitive. Han RH can boost his damage output.
Thrawn can give you auto init. Kel-Dors can help
hit and then go boom. Give him a swing. He has
150/200pts: Here Cade can have lots of help from
every faction. His limits are the limits of your
imagination. Having no defensive powers or
accurate, you will have to pick your strikes, but
that shouldnt be too hard. He isnt over powered,
but played well, he can cause a lot of damage. Garm
can let him move and still get off all of his
attacks. Thrawn can swap. He can back up bigger
characters by shooting the path clear, or heal them
after they take damage.
Force Heal 40 (Force 2, replaces attacks, touch;
remove 40 damage from living character.
Force Push 3 (Force 3, replaces turn; 30 damage to
target and adjacents and push back target and
adjacents 3 squares if huge or smaller.)
Wow, what a beast we have today. Skywalker's
decendant, Cade, is one extremely solid piece. For
61 points the stats can be a little decieving. 110
HP is solid, but lower than most would want on a
piece this expensive. The 20 Defence is also solid,
especially since Kota can boost it to an outstanding
23. The attack of +12 on a non-melee piece is also
great. As good as his stats are, his abilities and
force powers are what really make him shine.
That respectable +12 attack becomes an amazing +16
when shooting at uniques, due to bounty hunter. The
best part though is that, with twin and double, he
gets to do it 4 times at up to two different
targets! 80 damage to a single fig from a shooter?
Yes please. Remember, you can also move Cade and
still get to shoot twice, so no matter what, you
have a chance at 40 damage. Splash 10 is a bit of a
double edged sword. Four attacks per turn
means splash will hit pretty often and can nickle
and dime your opponent, not to mention help pick off
stormies with retarded defence. However, since Cade
lacks accurate shot, he's often going to be forced
to shoot at an uggy, or fig that is based to either
an ally or Cade himself. When you start hiting
yourself with splash, you'll quickly wish he didn't
have that particular ability. Unfortunatly push 3
won't help much in this situation either, as it
damages adjacents as well. When it comes to this I
like to turn to his other force power . . . Heal 40.
Yup, that's right. For the same cost as a heal 20
you can instantly heal an adjacent ally or yourself
for 40 damage. Simply amazing, especially when you
put Obi LS or Luke LS on Cade, giving him renewal
and mettle. Force spirit from Qui-Gon, either of
the rebel Obi's or yoda works great as well.
Remember, Cade is fringe, so there are planty of
amazing combos out there for him.
100pts 3/5: There are so many combos for Cade that
he can do quite well here if you can keep the big
beats out of your face.
150pts 4/5: Here he really starts getting the
support he needs. R2 Astro, Kota, Han RH or ST,
Bothan Nobles . . . the list really is endless.
200pts 4/5: All that is good at 150 is typically
better at 200. The lack of accurate is the only
thing keeping me from giving him a 5 in both
