Star Wars® Miniature Inventory Squad

Squad Name: PANAKASWAP
Squad Faction: Republic
Squad Value: 200

General Obi-Wan Kenobi
Ugnaught Demolitionist x3
Cad Bane
Anakin Skywalker on STAP
Captain Panaka
R2-D2, Astromech Droid
Mas Amedda
Rodian Brute x2

I had just remembered how much fun Panaka was when he came out, with Gowk being at full strength I got this idea of how much fun it would be if I ran a strafe run with Stapakin then swapped GOWK in on them. If not I can swap in a Brute in instead. I also wanted a bit of a late game punch after the swap gimmick and thats why I went with Bane, +20 to hit uniques just seemed way to sexy to resist.

Few things come up in my mind...............

to be honest Quigon and Yodabuck are better with Stap I think but its very close?

Bill had a good 200 with dash,GOWK,Stap NO SWAP back in 2009 somewhere on bloomilk.

Is GOWK/Yodabuck swap back?

I would run rex or dash over Cad since you can get another jedi + rex/Dash for what Cad costs.

I dont even know if panaka is needed now with foul around with less than a +10 attack.
New obi could be key in this now too.

In 09 Gencon
I ran Dash,Darkwoman,Stap,Qui gon Panaka R2 Lobot and roron. Went 3-1 at Gencon with it at 200.
Bill and Lou ran something like it too in 09 but without the darkwoman/dash combo and roron.

I think that squad could be updated pretty well now. I might even try new Mace with Stap.

Vsets and the last two WOTC sets have gave this squad type with stap new life.
Yes I know Lou and someone else ran Yodabuck/stap last year.

Grey Jedi
New obi padwan
New Mace
Foul
Wookiee Jedi
the charging non-u wookiee with cleave?
The other 2-5 new jedi with a 10+ or less attack since then for Qui Gon.

Some of the new ways to get +4 might be something to look at too so you can get around OR and there are other ways to move guys around than just panaka and R2 now?



Just stuff to think about.

I guess the first thing Ill ask is which Qui-gon are we referring to.

As far as Cad over Rex and going with GOWK I went with Cad because of Mace Windu. Everyone is playing Windu/Gowk right now and the +20 to hit will make sure I'm at least making my attack rolls.

Qui Gon Jinn, JT is the one that really helps Anistap. Give him the +4 attack boost to hit stuff effectively. I have a squad with Qui gon Jinn, JT and Ki-Adi Muni, JM that works really well. Its also got Yularen, Mas Ameda and Panaka so that you can run Ki-Adi Mundi up and swap him in with Panaka for Anistap and then Anistap can do his attack run at +15 attack and 30 dmg against all activated people. Ki-Adi is a great peice and its really unique to have the best swap option in the game for Anistap. Its really hard to pull of the 3 activations in one phase for Imperials.

Quite right about Quiggy JT, I'd bring him and Yularen in over GOWK for the same cost. Now Bane and Ani gain Opp, while gaining a valuable act. Also might drop an Uggie for another Brute.
