OK, so our venue is doing 150 points this week, and this is the first time we've played 150 since TFU came out (been playing 200 or larger, lol). I was running through the various things I might play, but got hung up on what would make a good post-TFU Nom Bomb squad.

Before TFU, Nom Bomb's with Boba Enforcer was my favorite. Now, with the MTB and Boba Merc, I'm trying to decide which is the best build. I'm pretty sure I don't want to leave out Boba altogether, because then I'm worried about Disruptive. So here's the two ideas I'm looking at:

Fett Merc
Nom Anor
Lobot
AA x3
Adv Scout
Gran Raider
Reinforcements: MTB, Gran x3

12 Activations total


Fett Enforcer
Nom Anor
Lobot
AA x4
Adv Scout x3
Caamasi (free gambit, lol)
Reinforcements: MTB, Gran x3

15 Activations Total

Which is better? Boba Merc's damage output is incredible, and he should be able to wipe out any Disruptive pieces without too much effort. However, it means 3 less activations, and only 12 activations is pretty darn light for a Nom Bomb squad, at least in my experience. Using Merc would give me 9 rounds of MTB engine (if I'm willing to sacrifice Lobot at some point). Sure, that adds up to 180 damage total, but one of the things I've learned about Nom Bombs, is that you don't build the squad purely for blowing up.

So.....do I need more activations? More bombs? Is trying to squeeze in Merc hurting me too badly? Should I just stick with Enforcer and the MTB/SD20 engine?

I have good experiences with this squad:
Boba Fett,Enforcer
Nom Anor
Aqualish Assassin
11x Gran Raider
Lobot (MTB,3xUgnaught/4x Gran Raider)

So I think it´s better to play Enforcer than Mercenary...

My Version for 150 (I've got all my AA's and Grans IN it)

Nom Anor

Lobot
Advance Scout
Aqualish Assassin x2
Chadra-Fan Pickpocket x2
Gran Raider
Ithorian Scout
Caamasi Noble
Total points 148
Reinforcements: MTB/4x uggie else Rodanian Scoundral + 2x uggie.

course you could always drop 13 points to add the uggie boss to make the MTB uggies blow up but hey.
