Twin Attack; Mobile Attack
CE: At the end of this character's turn, 1 unique
follower within 6 squares can make an immediate
attack with a +4ATK bonus.
ICE ICE BABY! No i am not trying to revive Vanilla
Ice (If i were doing that i would be doing GO NINJA
GO NINJA GO! :D). As we here in the Midwest chiseled
(Literally) out of an an ice storm it is only
fitting that we review Snowbunny Padme. Let's start
with her stats. For 23 points, you have a pretty
typical/solid 70HP. I love 70HP at this point range
because no matter if you are getting hit for 20 or
30, its going to take three attacks to take her
down. Her defense and attack are standard for Padme
and are quite good. She stands a solid chance at
inflicting damage on most any character, save the
big defense Jedi. Then again if she is near someone
like that then you are in deep doodoo anyways. Her
damage is also standard Padme.
Attack wise you could not ask for a better set on a
commander. She has mobile attack and twin attack, so
not only can she get two attacks off while moving,
she can help attack while not revealing herself to
enemy shooters. This is gold for a commander.
If her commander effect sounds familiar, it should.
It is close to the same as her daughter's with two
very important differences. The first is that it
only grants +4 ATK but not the +10 damage that
Princess Leia grants. The other major difference is
a perk. Unlike Leia, Padma has access to Mas Amedda,
meaning she can use her CE board wide instead of
having to stay with in 6 of her follower. It is
going to make her even harder to get to in order to
Great figure, right? Well, kind of. She is a really
good figure, but she lacks the support that Leia
has. There are two things that make this CE really
good. The first is access to twin attack. Leia has
access to both of Luke's speeders and Han Scoundrel.
Right now, the republic only has access to STAP or
Nelvaan Anakin for twin. This is one area i would
really like to see the Republic grow in future sets.
The other is massive damage output. Leia's +10DAM
really helps abuse this. Padme lacks the extra
damage, so you are going to have to rely on
characters with cunning. Shaak Ti is about the only
solid option at the moment. There is also Saesee
Tiin from Clone Strike, but his single attack really
hurts him. So you either have to hope for the init
to do 90 with Shaak Ti or get the double twin with
Nelvaan Anakin (the better of the two) for a
Lastly, you get the sculpt. I think this has quickly
become the second favorite Fan boy's costume right
behind slave Leia's outfit.
100pts: she could work here. Her mobile twin will
allow her to eliminate grunts or do damage to main
characters. The biggest drawback is going to be the
support. Your best bet will most likely be with
Shaak Ti. She won't be great here, but she is worth
a shot. Don't forget you also have all of the fringe
options. Cade could be fun, but you also have Fett
BH, Komari and Maris.
150/200pts: Here she will be fantastic. She is just
as good as her daughter even though she lacks some
of the perks of extra damage and faction support. If
you get her, run her if you have one of the above
mentioned figures, and unlike Aayla from earlier in
the week, Padme is cheap enough to make it into a
lot of squads.
