This week was pretty interesting. Several players (myself included) were prepping for the Lansing Regional so things were a bit intense tonight. The maps tonight were Jedi Temple on Table 1, Jabba's Palace on Table 2 and Theed Palace on Table 3. I guess the first thing we aught to do is list the squads that played

Shawn Cunningham (SvenBlackSunVigo)

Xizor
Natulan Black Sun Vigo
Zann Consortium Defiler x2
Cad Bane
Bastilla Shan, Jedi Master
Mouse Droid x2
Uggie x2

Benjamin Schiffli (HannahCannon)

53 Darth Vader, Imperial Commander
16 Felucian Storm Trooper Officer
16 Admiral Gilad Palleon
08 Mas Amedda
91 Shock Troopers x7
10 Defel Pirate
06 Uggie x2

Daniel Miller

18 Twilek Black Sun Vigo
44 Corellian Security Officer x2
22 R2-C3PO Galactic Heroes
19 NR Tactician
18 NR Elite Trooper
23 General Wedge Antilles
51 Matellion Savrip x3
03 Ugnaught Demolitionist

Chris Elwell (WarMasterPig)

Nom Bombs 2012

08 Muun Tactics Broker
19 Yomin Carr
42 Advanced Scout x7
34 Nom Anor
37 Prefect Da' Gara
15 Momaw Da' Gara
15 Yammosk War Coordinator
28 Yuuzah Vong Worker x7

Kenny Smoot (Chewie73)

Kel Dor Thunder

32 Thrawn
27 Lobot
25 Bossk, Bounty Hunter
20 Bith Black Sun Vigo
18 Moff Nyna Calixte
15 Jabba, Crime Lord
52 Kel Dor Bounty Hunter x4
08 Mas Amedda
03 Uggie

Audri Sampson (AudriSampson)

Haters

60 Master Vander
42 The Revanchist
33 Bastilla Shan, Jedi Master
29 Carth Onasi, OR Soldier
14 OR Senator
15 Mouse Droid x5
06 Uggie x2

I guess the first thing we will go over is who won. Chris Elwell and his Nom Bombs successfully got past myself, Ben and faced off against Shawn's Black Sun squad. About half way through the finals Shawn conceded to play some Dynamic Duo. I didn't get to see the table before that happened but I can assume Shawn didn't have much left before he conceded.

Nom Bomb has had quite the run here locally. I know it hasn't made a strong tourney appearance since Universe but around here it has about a 75% win percentage. I got the joy of facing this squad in round one and tried to make a heroic dash to the other side of the map to try to destroy the commander effects but by the time I was there and just the War Cordinator was destroyed I had 20hp left on Vander and a few mouse droids left. Not going to get the job done against 6 or more Workers remaining and Nom himself at the lower side of the map. I will admit by the end of that game I was harbering some serious ill will towards the person who designed Force Immunity and to the person who thought a 4pt Vong with stealth and can gain spit poison was a good idea..

My round 2 and round 3 were both against very commander effect heavy squads. Bastilla does her thing and generally fall into place. Because of that the rounds were kinda uneventful.

However Round 2 did not go as good for Nom Bomb. Time expired for the round and Ben had managed to destroy quite a few Workers and nearly all the scouts. The match was played on Jabba's Palace which helped against the Super stealth but when Imperial Commander Vader went down from bombs and Chris rolled a one for iniative to bring in more workers things went downhill pretty fast.

Bomb's round 3 went pretty similar to my 2nd and 3rd. Shawn didnt have away to get rid of stealth and because of all the bombs his shooters went down pretty quick for the win.

I am guessing chris doesnt have cad bane. Jake ran that squad in 2011 but with less bombs, Lobot,Cad. He did really well with it.

He played the new Vset Warmaster at first but after Lansing elected to go for more bombs. What it did is really take his strong matchups and make them nearly unwinable for his opponents. I guess we can say he had to many close calls. Now if he had Cad that might be a different story. Can't really speak for him on that one.

Yeah I think he did. He has been searching for something to do with Cad Bane and the marriage between Black Sun and Cad Bane was one made in heaven for him. If it has to do with SW's scum and villany he is all about it. Overall the squad performed really well for him, I wanted a crack at it pretty bad to see how it handled losing its commander effects but it didn't happen.

Sheez... I pretty impressed with your squad myself and halfway considered running it myself. I guess I was under the misunderstanding that if I liked a squad enough to clone it, it was a compliment to the creator. Sorry if that offended you.

Long story short since i'm on my phone,I was originally going to say thanks for helping a long project that I had been working on since I have started giving me some real good input, but if your going to be rude then don't expect any gratuity.but I would like to say thanks for the help and that is bit sarcasm

If your calling me out for "Netdecking" in minis your pretty gravely mistaken. If you want to take the time to do it there have been very few OR squads posted in event reports or Squad builder that haven't had my name attached to it. Last time I checked OR is quickly receeding back in the power scale and I'm the only one here that is actively working with the faction at this point in time. (Or at least being public about it). Come to think of it didn't you play LoGOWKey???
