--SWARM N U--
25 Han Solo in Stormtrooper Armor
14 General Rieekan
11 Ithorian Commander
9 General Dodonna
8 R4 Astromech Droid
33 Rodian Brute x11

(100pts. 16 activations)
Luke_Skywalker's Comment:
Totally a fun squad, but you could definitely win some matches with it. You probably will not be out activated, and the R4 should have sufficient cover to be kept safe. Han does the mobile attack thing and the real trick is just to over-run your opponents, watch out for Kyle Katarn though.

Also this squad suffers from low attack rolls, Highest is a +8. This squad could perform better at 150 by adding in 4 aqualish assassins, Princess Leia Hoth commander, and another Rodian Brute. Possibly sub out 2-3 brutes @ 150 for ugs.

It's certainly a way better option than using Ewoks. :P Granted, Swarm can be nice, but it's tough to pull off. At least with this you're always at a +8. Not sure it would win a lot of tourneys, but it would definitely be frustrating to play against, lol.

Ewok Hater! LOL!

I love swarm squads for the fun factor. I'm looking forward to adding Rodian Brutes and Talz Warriors to make some fun squads of high activations.

That looks like a pretty fun squad to run. I have just the 4 Rodian Brutes and am thinking of ordering more of them.

Nice, Rieekan is a good add, but I'm not sure if he's totally useful here. Well, he's always useful, but maybe it would be better to have 4 more Brutes..

I know that you don't usually expose your commanders until later.. so assume that only the 11 Brutes will be out there. 50% of them making their evades = 5.5 Brutes. Hmm, evade.. or 5 more brutes.. Heck, with this activations count you could even choose to drop Dod and go with 3 more Brutes.. or 2 brutes and an uggy.

The thing with reikan is that he allows han to stick his nose in and take out those little meatshields people like to put in the way. You can use him to take extra shots on things, and with mobile attack and stealth it is pretty easy to keep him hidden. However Dodonna could easily be dropped for 2 ugos and another brute.
