I've been looking at Jarael and Ithorian Commander as well as Gundarks and Varactyl Wranglers. Basically, all my melee pieces will be attacking at +4 and doing 20 damage. But I have no idea how to flesh it out to 150. Ideally I want a stealth/cloak melee character with 10 damage but I can't seem to think up of any from Rebel/Fringe. Any help is appreciated!

Aqulish Assassins and Han ST are the old standbys for this type of build. And they're Stealthy too.

Tried this out a variation of this last night and it was quite fun:

45 Garm Bel Iblis
45 Mara Jade, Jedi
26 Yuuzhan Vong Ossus Guardian x2
23 General Wedge Antilles
23 Jarael
6 Mouse Droid x3
3 Ugnaught Demolitionist

Garm Bel Iblis:
17 Bothan Noble
11 Ithorian Commander
(200pts. 12 activations)

The Guardian is a real beast

Oooh... I like that list, though we seldom play anything above 150 over here. Would taking out the Ossus Guardian severely reduce the firepower of this list?

Well it wouldn't be much point to the squad without at least one of the Guardians really. For 150, take out MJ, Wedge and 1 Mouse Droid, add in Leia Skywalker but I don't think it will be nearly as effective, which is okay because it's really not winning any tournaments anyway.

That's true :P I didn't really expect it to win tournaments but I was tickled by the Ithorian Commander and wanted to do something with it. Thanks for the suggestion! Now I'll just have to wait till JA hits my LGS.

If you're just looking for Rebel/Fringe with 10 damage and Melee Attack, there are almost 30 options. Besides the ones you've mentioned, I'd say Aay Vida is a strong candidate, and for 7 points, you can do far worse than the Chanda-Fan Pickpocket.

If you're thinking of using the Varactyl Wrangler anyway, there are a number of savage pieces that work well with your idea, notably the Rakghoul, Nexu, and Gundark.

Good luck!
