Ok, if your wondering how I came up with the name, Rebels faction color is red, Ferus + Jensaarai = Feraarai when put together. Silly I know, but I love making clever neames with play on words. :P

Anyways, I digress. Now as to this squad.

--The Red Feraarai--
45 Jensaarai Defender
27 Ferus Olin
13 Kel Dor Bounty Hunter
7 Ugnaught Droid Destroyer
5 Caamasi Noble
3 Ugnaught Demolitionist

(100pts. 6 activations)

This squad can be a tough cookie to break. The goal is to keep Ferus Olin and the Jensaarai Defender in base contact with each other so that Ferus can be a good body guard and soak up the reduced damage that the Jensaarai will hopefully be taking thanks to Force Attuned armor. This combo of minis is something I've been wanting to try for a while, and with Dark times, we finally gat a mini that is as good at body guarding as it is at taking out enemies. Once Ferus gets low on HP, start using his Dark Tempation to make his attack and damage something very scary to enemies. If he manages to go over to the other opponents side, simple finish him off with the Jensaari Defender (tough love... I know :D ) and score 27 points. Hopefully it won't come to that. The Jensaarai will do his job and can deal a fair amount of damage and has good defense and Draw Fire is invaluable at keeping Ferus alive also. Deflect is another great advantage to this combo as he can just neglect ranged attacks if he makes the save, this also sparing Ferus some damage. I really think this squad has potential! The minis I have that can be possibly switched are the Kel Dor BH and the Uggnaught Droid Destroyer. I wanted some reliable shooters and these two are, imo, the best shooters for their cost, even though thier damage isn't spectacular. The Uggnaught Droid Destroyer is a favorite of mine and is becoming a staple in most of my squads, mostly be cause it had good defense, good attack and most importantly JOLT. The ability to stun at range is always a bonus in 100pt.

Thoughts or suggestions on how to improve this squad? I really want this squad to succeed so any help would be great!

unfortunately, Force-Attuned Armor, like Dark Armor only applies to damage taken by the character. So if you choose to BG the damage you don't get to reduce it first via FAA. Similarily if you choose to deflect then you are accepting the damage on the JD and also cannot BG if you fail the save.

However the two of them work together as well, though they may suffer from their low-ish attack.
