Luke, Legacy of the Light Side 39 pts.
Aurra Sing 37 pts.
Bothan noble 17 pts.
twi'lek scout 7 pts.

100 points exactly



Use the twi'lek to grant +4 with rangefinder, and the shooters already have careful shot, so that's a gaurenteed +8 attack without moving. The bothan provides aurra with an additional attack. This squad can pump out 100 damage from luke and aurra in a round. It doesn't sound like much, but also consider the +8 attack AND they both have accurate shot, so those shots don't go to waste. The shooters have very respectable defense too. I was thining of 2 uggs instead of the twi'lek, but I'm not sure.


Thoughts?

The Damage output is pretty low. That is a concern for me. On top of that pieces with damage reduction or some type of armor (crab or Dark) will seriously nerf the damage output even more. I believe that rather than a Bothan Noble you would be better off Using Lando DS and subbing the Twilek out for the ugs for activations. Even so, without something to stall your opponents advances your shooters will be exposed.

You can't get the bonus from Careful Shot when you use the Noble's CE as Careful Shot only applies "on this character's turn". You would still get the Rangefinder bonus on a Bothan CE shot though.

100 damage in one round is nothing to scoff at in 100 point games, IMO. Bane only does 100 dmg per round at a Maximum. On top of the fact that Aurra is just plain tough to take down with her 130 HP and good Defense. Then you have the Bothan on top of that to help heal Aurra, and Luke will not be seen much at all early on. To top it all off, Luke can possibly use his Jedi Mind Trick, which will allow him to do things like Double Attack, and then run away.

Sure, it'll have trouble with some builds, but it's pretty decent, IMO.
