47 Luke's Landspeeder
35 Zuckuss, Bounty Hunter
27 Han Solo, Smuggler
20 Princess Leia
14 General Rieekan
12 Anakin Skywalker, Force Spirit
9 General Dodonna
9 R2-D2 with Extended Sensor
8 Juno Eclipse
9 Mouse Droid x3
9 Ugnaught Demolitionist x3

(199pts. 15 activations)

Ok, nothing terribly outstanding, basically an upgrade from the 150 pt. variant, with Zuckuss and Anakin added. I prefer the Landspeeder over the SS nowadays, because the Crix + ERC combo is still popular and lightsaber-based squads (mainly republic) are becoming more and more common. Also the LS has deflect, so it still has something when based/disrupted and alter and trick are kinda useful too. Anakin is very powerful haunting Zuck and virtually providing boardwide Mettle.

Critique and comments are much appreciated ;)

I like it overall. Could always look at the possibility of running Yoda FS instead of Ani/Juno or Ani/R2 so that all your Force Users could have a few extra points. Don't know that that would be THAT useful though, so what you have is probably optimal.

Don't ALWAYS assume you're going to haunt Zuckuss though. There may be games where it would be better to haunt the Landspeeder so that it can have those extra FPs. Like maybe if you're up against a squad of low-ish Def Uniques or a swarm squad or something.

And honestly, the primary reason most people end up using the Snowspeeder instead of the Landspeeder is because of Flight, which is a big detriment to the Landspeeder, IMO. That said, Joruus Cbaoth (Phillip) did show last year that the Landspeeder was just as capable, and he rode that to the semi-finals. So I think this squad is a decent upgrade overall. Maybe a tad light on damage output, but hard to say for sure. The Landspeeder is a tough one to take down sometimes, especially against other shooters.
