Playtest Results Summaries #1

I ran some 400 point army playtests last night--Bounty Hunters versus Battle Droids.

All battles were played on White Knight's Glacier Creek battlefield:


Army #1--Bounty Hunters
Beedola 70pts
Chi'lek 100pts
Nika Stoss 100pts
Stamm Teego 100pts

Army #2--Droids
Battle Droids (4x) (60x4=240 pts)
Droid Commander (80 pts)
Heavy Gunner (80 pts)

Note on Beedola: For Opportunistic Strike, you must remove an UNREVEALED order marker.

Battle #1
This battle doesn't count, since I made all sorts of mistakes with the special abilities.

Battle #2
Droids won by a landslide.

The Bounty Hunters led onto the bridge with Nika Stoss and Beedola. The droids refused to attack Beedola (because of his Opportunistic Strike) unless there was no way for Beedola to get adjacent to the attacking figure. They relied upon the Heavy Gunner (guarded behind a wall of Battle Droids) to take out the heroes.

Chi'lek came in late and assassinated the Commander Droid, but the Battle Droids had height on him and quickly took him down. Stamm Teego never got out of the start zone.

Battle #3
Bounty Hunters win--only Nika Stoss survived (with 2 wounds).

The Bounty Hunters led onto the bridge with Beedola as a shield for Stamm Teego (with his double attack). Instead of attacking the droids, Stamm took out the Commander Droid to remove the +3 defense against non-adjacent figures. The droids used the Heavy Gunner to take out both Beedola and Stamm.

Chi'lek dropped in and took out the Heavy Gunner--but fell right afterwards to the Battle Droids. That left Nika Stamm (in the start zone) versus about 8 Battle Droids.

The Droids hurried over the bridge to attack Nika, but the Bounty Hunter's defense held and he gunned them down (usually) 2 at a time (with Flurry Attack). Slowly Nika gained the bridge and then took out the remaining droids. An awesome battle!


COMMENTS
The Droid army is really fun to play. The Droid Commander is like Raelin with his Droid Defense Shield. The Droid Heavy Gunner is necessary for taking out heroes. They all work great together and can be extremely effective.

I had trouble in the beginning remembering to roll for the bounty hunters Bounty Hunter ability. I did much better the second and third battles. Nika Stoss was definitely the most fun of all the Bounty Hunters. Beedola was fun also--and he forced the Droids to think on every move. The battlefield wasn't really useful for Chi'lek to use his Dark Movement, but he WAS able to gain height right away and attack the opponent's heroes.

It was fun to finally be able to play with some of the cards I made!
