Alas, I have none of these characters, but...

Piett, 20
Mas Amedda, 8
Storm Commando x4=68
Ugnaught Demolitionist, 3
=99 points, 7 activations

The whole basis of the squad is that the Storm Commandos gain Opportunist, and since they already having Cunning Attack...they effectively gain a permanent +4 attack and +10 damage, which means that they have +10 attack for 20 (can be 30) damage, and combined with double and so on...not too bad.

The damage potential is great.

Number of activations is good.

It will have trouble against force heavy squads, and maybe mobile shooters.

All in all, it looks like a fun, and good, squad.

This is a good idea unfortunatly it wont work because the commandos aren't troopers so piett is useless other than recon.

good idea, however firstly as said bfor, SC's arnt troopers, and secondly, Loda will annihilate this squad with Push. Auto dmg is this squads main bane, along with accurate shooters and melee.

Don't worry, I made the same mistake at a tourny a while back. Luckily, my friend caught my mistake before the games started.
It is a good Idea though.

Not sure what you're meaning here. Loda doesn't have Push. If you meant Loda's Reflect, then yes, that would be annoying.

If you instead meant Luke Hoth Pilot's Force Push, then it shouldn't be too bad, since Luke's Push 4 follows targetting rules, which means the SCs would have to be without cover, or within 6 of Luke.

Biggest problem being that, yeah, SCs can't use Piett's CE. It really is a bummer too.

I thought so, and not only because my above post.
Because it says he does here: http://www.wizards.com/swminis/swminis_ ... &sort=name
on the official SWM database.

Does Push 3 replace attacks or turn? The WotC Database says replace turn, but our database says replace attacks. Verification please.
