Playtesting a Custom

So, I'm going to be playtesting my first custom unit soon. How do I go about it? I know, it's a ridiculously open-ended question, but I'm not sure where to start. Is there a good way of collecting solid and useful data short of playing 30 games with him and looking at the notes? Are there certain 'baseline' units or armies I should throw him in/against to determine whether or not he's worth his points? How do I playtest squads? And, since I'm making a round of Star Wars units, how do I playtest a group of units 'in a vacuum' so to speak (most units will have little to no synergy with existing Scape)?

Any help here would be appreciated. Is there a similar or existing thread? (Yes, I searched the forums; didn't find anything useful.) Maybe I could get some tips from developers? *wink wink*

Grungebob, someone who definitely would know about how to playtest a figure, gives his advice in this thread.

Re: Playtesting a Custom

Thanks for the great resources! Lawl at not finding that thread because of the dash between play and testing.

Re: Playtesting a Custom

In addition, we playtest all of our figures over in C3G. We have at least 3 people fill out a playtest sheet found here for each custom figure. We consulted with GBob when we created the sheet. I hope it helps.

Thanks for posting that, it is extremely helpful. I will make sure to use this for my playtesting from now on.
