HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

This is a copy of the C3G Starter Army Suggestions thread, but I would appreciate it is the idea was attached to HOSS thematic starter armies. What would be (mostly effective) thematic starter armies with HOSS characters. I do not know what is the average point build for HOSS games, so that would also be helpful feedback.

Cheers!

For inspiration, the C3G thread is found here:

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

I don't know how effective it is:

But I'd run an army of: Han Solo 120
Chewbacca 120
Dengar 110
Rebel Troopers x2 110
R2 D2 90
=490

The reason I include Dengar is for his sniper attack, which I would use on Vader.

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

@Jdet , throw in C3P0 for 10 pts and make it an even 500pts.

Generally in Hoss the most synergies and armies are within factions. Imperials work well with Imperials, Rebels with rebels, and Independent with Independent. For example, stormtroopers are great against squad figures but not very effective against heroes, so offset with some hero killing units such as darth vader.

The Rebel Troopers are really most effective with a Rebel Captain and Princess Leia.

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

This would probably be a lot easier than the C3G thread I started linked above since the factions are on the card. Still a cool idea to help newcomers decide how many troopers to buy.

Thanks! I would, but I don't have the Rebel Captain-and I like Han and Chewie.

Han does well against squads, and Chewie's bowcaster is decent against hero's, so they make a good core by them selves. Yu could pair them with any number of things, Luke 3.0, either Vader, some Thug squads, an AT-ST, Rancor, any of the bounty hunters, etc. I see them as being super flexible.

My trade thread, now with Classic, C3V and SoV units!
All units come with cards.

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

I like it so far: Leia + Rebels, Vader + Imperials and Han/Chewie + Bounty Hunters. Very easy to grok.

How about an Army of Luke, Ben and the Droids?

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

Han and Chewie plus bounty hunters doesn't really work with the theme of Star Wars. The only reason Dengar works is because (in the previously discarded EU) he joined the rebellion for a time in order to catch them. He's just in the army to take down Vader as he has a power very similar to Dead-Eye Dan.

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

Han/Chewie + hive of scum and villainy? The Emperor's Throneroom cards are very nice additions as well!

Re: HOSS Starter Army Suggestions

Jabba the hutt can employ a team of bounty hunters, or an independent army of scum.
