The Holocron of Death Star Troopers

The Holocron of Death Star Troopers

HoSS Master Set - A New Hope



The figure used for this unit is a Star Wars figure from the Force Unleashed set. Its model number and name are #37/Imperial Navy Trooper.
The figure used for this unit is a Star Wars figure from the Alliance & Empire set. Its model number and name are #27/Death Star Trooper.

______________________________________________________________

Character Bio - As the Death Star came closer to completion, Grand Moff Tarkin sought the need to create a specially trained fighting force which were taken from the best of the Imperial Navy troopers. Once their training was complete, the new Death Star troopers became multi-talented individuals who fulfilled a wide variety of roles which included both combat and non-combat positions throughout the battle stations. This included training that taught them skills in advanced combat as well as independent command training.
______________________________________________________________

-Rulings and Clarifications-
• Q: What about Wall walks? They are 'man-made' and are in a few of your maps (The Tantive IV and the Death Star Throne Room for example) so why aren't they listed?
A: Wall walks are considered Road tiles for all purposes during a game. So Imperial Navy Training will count on Wall walks just like Road tiles.

• Q: So Imperial Navy Training isn't affected by Imperial Marksmanship, right, since it's adding hits instead of adding skulls?

A: Correct, as Imperial Navy Training counts blanks as hits and Imperial Marksmanship counts skulls as double.

Re: The Holocron of Death Star Troopers

So Imperial Navy Training isn't affected by Imperial Marksmanship, right, since it's adding hits instead of adding skulls?

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Re: The Holocron of Death Star Troopers

Very good idea to get these to height advantage right away. Rolling 2 attack dice, you're only going to completely whiff an attack by rolling 2 shields 11% of the time, and the defender will be going up against at least 2 skulls 78% of the time.

I know that I do not know.

Thanks for the stats Sir G! Looks like:

220 Darth Vader
320 MDG
500 Death Star Troopers x3

On a road/castle/marvel map would be devastating.

Re: The Holocron of Death Star Troopers

In a counterdraft I think I prefer the Stormtroopers. In a double blind I would take the Stormtroopers along a strong anti-Hero (Darth Vader, anyone?) but would probably prefer the Death Star Troopers in general for their versatility.

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

It would be worthwhile to add this information to the FAQ as I had the same question (i.e. When a Death Star Trooper uses Imperial Navy Training, does the blank rolled count as a skull for 2 hits or as a single hit?).
While I did play it correctly, I think this is the first time I've seen this mechanism used and likely others will have the same question.

Only when attacking the stars of the movies. Put them up against Rebel troops or Jawas, and they go to town.
