Double Attack; Mobile Attack; Mounted Weapon; Net
Gun 16; DR 10; Rigid
Today we look at the new and revamped AT-ST. The
stats are the same as its predecessor. Both have
double attack, mobile attack, DR10, and rigid. For
four points more you are losing Grenades 20 and
gaining net gun 16. I am not impressed. I never
really used grenades, so that isnt a big loss, but i
really do not think that it is worth the 4pt
increase even though the save is 16 instead of 11.
The WH-ST suffers from all the problems as the
original AT-ST. Its attack is horrendous and its
defense isnt much better. DR 10 helps, but you still
need to bring LOTS of help. Thrawn is usually going
to be your best bet for the +3/+3 and swapping. You
can also use blizzard scout 1 to make it cheaper as
well. But the WH-ST does have one interesting tidbit
- for now. Here's what i am talking about from the
Definition of Wookiee: "A wookiee is any character
with the word 'wookiee' in its name or that has the
wookiee special ability. Chewbacca and Tarfful also
count as wookiees."
Since the WH-ST has wookiee in its name it is
considered to be a wookiee. I guess this is what a
shaved wookiee looks like. So what does this have to
do with the price of blue milk? It means that you
can bring the WH-ST into a republic squad via
Commander Gree. It also means that through Master
Yoda, the WH-ST can gain bodyguard. A BG with DR10
and a lot of HP is powerful, if not expensive.
100/150pts - Dont use it here. It needs too much
help and its stats are just too bad, like its
200pts: It can be run here, but its stats are going
to need help to do much. It will be more of a fun
piece than a competitive piece.
