The new Captain of our repetitive friends, the
clones. Captain Rex comes in at #8 on our list.
Honestly, he didnt make my top 10 list. I dont even
think he made my initial list of pieces. Rex is a
very good piece. He is one of the few non-jedi
commanders that actually is a very real offensive
threat. He has a solid attack and can attack four
times a turn regardless of movement. His CE is also
nice because now clones can have greater mobile. My
problem with Rex isnt really Rex. It has to do more
with his poor support. There are no clone pieces
with double attack right now, so greater mobile is
wasted. You can get mobile cheaper and more
efficiently using Queen Amidala. Aayla can grant
double, but between Aayla and Rex you are tying up
83pts of your squad. Even after all that you still
have clones that are going to have a hard time
hitting anything with a solid defense. Also the
average clone that is even worth playing costs
upwards of 15pts.
To me it is just too much commander for not enough
follower. If we get some solid double attacking
clones in the future, i think his stock will go up
as a commander. If you really like Rex, though,
feel free to run him just for his offense. He is a
tad too expensive to do that, but for four attacks
that have a solid chance to hit most characters he
can be worth it.
Tomorrow is the Emperor's favorite because he can
feel the hate swelling in you now. ;)
Top 10 Minis of 2008 countdown!!!
10. Moff Nyna Calixte
9. General Dodanna
8. Captain Rex
Today’s mini of the day is
Captain Rex again. He came at #5 on my list
though. Rex has now changed at all since the review
due to him being so new but now I have been able to
play him more and I can justly say THIS PIECE IS A
MUST FOR O66 HEAVY SQUADS. He shoots for more
damage in one turn than any Boba (Barring crits and
Disintegrations). His commander effect is good even
with the lack of double attacking clones. The
defense hurts him more than I thought it would. One
note is I think they could’ve given him accurate and
he wouldn’t be to OP but that’s just my opinion.
One good use of him I feel is my Echo Squad and the
Palpy, SL squads on Bloomilk.com.
His ratings are the same as the old review!!!
Next piece is BkiJrarJnsa
