Triple Attack; Regeneration 10

Today we look at another KOTOR piece.  Canderous may or may not be effective as a piece, but he really hits the game's version of him dead on.

 
For 48 points, you get a decent HP, but that is really about all that is good.  His defense means he is going to get lit up in a hurry.  The +10 is also pretty bad.  It means you have a piece that is 1/2 to 3/4 of your squad that cannot hurt your opponent's major pieces with any consistency.  Most big Jedi you are rolling 12-13 to hit, and that is pretty bad odds.  The one big perk is  that he has a massive base 30 damage, so if he hits, its gonna hurt.

Triple attack makes Canderous someone that you really do not want to mess around with.  If the die is favoring him, he will take beat sticks down in a hurry, assuming he can hit of course.  Regeneration is a great ability, but its hard to make use of in most games.  With such a low defense, you dont want to leave him in the open.  Canderous is a spitting image of the character from the game, but his effectiveness is left lacking a bit.

100pts:  With all of the big defense power Jedi ruling this roost, he really cant be effective here.

150pts: In a fun game i can see Canderous being somewhat effective, but there just isnt enough room to bring in all of the help that he really needs.  The Mando faction received a huge boost from Legacy, but it still has a ways to go.

200pts: Here Canderous can be effective to a degree, but not in quite the way you think.  he really needs to be played with Boba MC and the Mando Commander for accurate and mobile.  Then, instead of trying to take out the big threats, Let him deal with the mid level characters.  He stands a better chance of hitting them, and can be very effective in taking them out if he gets a triple off.  Two hits and the likes of Talon, R2PO, ect go down in two hits.  He is great for attacking 30, 50 and 60 HP characters.  Let Boba deal with the bigger guns for as long as possible.
