Here's my take on Cad Bane along with the custom mini I made....

Let me know what you think!

I am thinking of making another one to auction off at our Jedi Academy Release Tournament.

I really need a better camera...

Looks good, can't wait to see it in person! FYI you have it as "advoided" under Cunning Strategist, its "avoided". And I do like that idea, very unique. His CE is killer (guessing that's a lot of his points). Maybe you can make the CE for non-uniques which would reduce his cost by at 8 or so (totally winging it, lol).

I've heard this guy is supposed to be quite the badass, definitely need to watch the series...

Thanks Chris! I fixed the typo. I wanted Cad right along par with Fett, BH but I also did not want him to just be a mirror. The results you see above is what I settled on - a good shooter who can put a hurting on some of the newer pieces with good defensive abilities and a really good CE that puts him right on par with Fett without anything that could make him broken (as far as I could see).

Bryan, I am . . . in awe of him! Well, the custom, at least. The stats look great, too. Cunning Strategist is incredible!

Bryan,
you know I love your work
but i think too many people are putting Too much on Cad based off a singel episode

BH +6 is a bit much I think
and Acc Shot...?
I dunno
the only shooting we see him do is at a senator in the back after he passed him;
perhaps Quick Reaction?

120 Hp...?
he's a duros (I think) and so far they aren't much more resilisant than any other "baseline" species
heck Han only has 80-90 and Lando only has 50!

I think the Commander effect is BRILLIANT however!
clever and inventive...

Madman - I think you really need to read a little bit about him, or at least what is out there, which is only a bit. He is supposed to be the best BH in the galaxy after Jango is killed.


I like this take on him.

However since we some of his clever weaponary in the previews for next season it will be interesting to see how they incorporate them in to a mini/stats.

"If Boba Fett is Star Wars' version of the Man With No Name, then Cad Bane is his Lee Van Chleif."

I forget who exactly within Lucasfilm made that comment, but that's a powerful statement and one that hints of greatness.

As for the stats, I tend to consider the fact that it is a RPG company who is making a miniature game, so I will consider what level the character's RPG sheet would be, then build the mini stats from what might appear there. In Cad Bane's case, I figured that we are looking at a 15th or 16th level character. Even a Duros at that level can easily have the amount of HP that I assigned him.

Cad's a Bounty Hunter, which means that he will pick and choose who he shoots. Why waste ammo on pee-ons that you don't get paid for. Accurate Shot and Bounty Hunter are abilities that mesh with that attitude. The Bounty Hunter ability was increased to +6 so I could keep his attack bonus lower. Cad will be quite effective against an Unique target, but will really struggle against a pimped out non-unique with a high defense. Cunning Strategist was my way of making Cad unique among the other characters. He is an answer to some of the new abilities we are seeing like Force Defense and GOWK's mastery - without making another broken mechanism.

Glad you guys like him! I am expecting we will see WOTC's version of Cad maybe as early as Galaxy At War...he's a character I can see Lucasfilm dictating that he be included like they did with Gha Nuchkt.

Nice work there! Custom looks pretty good, and the card is beautiful. It looks like the brown you used for his hat and cape could be a tad darker. Once again, good job. :)

Custom looks fantastic. Personally, I hate it when LFL jams a new 'fan favorite' character down our throats...

Based on what we know this is an awesome custom. The flavor is great too.....I want to surround him with various non unique aliens and have them be a bit more potent just like his season finale episode. None of his lackeys bumbled or tripped and he was bad ass himself. Very very nice job.

Sculpt looks great too.....well the bottom photo anyhow ;)
