The Holocron of IG-88A

The Holocron of IG-88A


SSE 3: Droid Revolution



Figure Card:


Rectangular Cards
Spoiler Alert!



The figure used for this unit is a Star Wars figure from the Bounty Hunters set. Its model number and name are #36/IG-88, Bounty Hunter

______________________________________________________________

Character Bio - After IG-88A gained "sentience programming" and killed much of the Project Phlutdroid personnel, IG-88A activated the other 3 IG-88 models there and named them by order of activation, giving each one a copy of its own sentience programming. With the other IG-88s, as well as IG-72, the five droids managed to escape the factory and leave a swath of destruction in their wake.

On the foundry world of Mechis III, the IG-88's began planning a galaxy wide droid rebellion. With IG-88A impersonating the now-deceased administrator of Mechis III, and IG-88B acting as the bounty hunter "face" of the group, IG-88C and D were left to personally oversee the manufacturing of their plan and act as sentries for Mechis III.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

IG-88A
Independent
Droid
Unique Hero
Leader
Calculating
Medium 6
Points: 180

Life 4
Move 5
Range 7
Attack 3
Defense 5

DROID REVOLUTION
After revealing an Order Marker on this card and instead of taking a turn with IG-88A, you may take a turn with one other hero or squad you control. After that turn you may also reveal an 'X' Order Marker on this card and take a turn with IG-88A or a different hero or squad you control. If you control any figures that are not Droids, IG-88A may not use his Droid Revolution special power.

DIOXIS GAS SPECIAL ATTACK
Range Special. Attack 3
All small, medium, and large figures within two clear sight spaces of IG-88A and no more than 6 levels above or below IG-88A's base are affected by this special attack. Roll attack dice once for all affected figures. Each figure rolls defense dice separately. Droids are not affected by Dioxis Gas Special Attack.

BALLISTIC ANALYSIS
When IG-88A rolls defense dice against a normal attack from a non-adjacent figure, one shield will block all damage.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

All the soulborg squads can be moved with Droid Revolution too correct?

Theoretically you could take a turn with the Gladiatrons, move the Gladiatrons again, then move/attack with the Blastatrons?

You could also use the Zettian Infantry to get a turn with a Deathwalker twice in the same order marker?

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

He was tested with the Glads/Blasts combo, we were concerned about them specifically and after testing and refinement they work together well but not exceptionally better then the Blast/Glads combo already is on it's own (which is really good). I don't know anything about what other custom projects are doing with their cards. Some of the Official Classic units overlooked the need for some OM reveal verbiage in order to keep units balanced and prevent bonding loops but at this point I'd be surprised to see a custom card that didn't have it.

If you think an all droid army like the glads and blasts with this guy is unstoppable. Just have your jawas ride some quasatch hunters into battle.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

This guy and Glad Blast army decimated double their points of Jawas/quasatch hunters in a game my buddy and I tested (assuming we played it right) Just sayin, Glad Blast army is the best strategic army in all of the heroscape world and giving it a buff is kinda surprising. Im with @kevindola here.

I'm surprised at this. The IG88 figure takes away a couple of squads worth of gladiatron/blastatrons away with his point value in a traditional 500pt army. In play testing these guys got beat by the other armies both times. One game was quasatch hunters x5 vs the glad/blast IG88A combo. The other was a droid hero army against a bunch of jawas and the jawas took control of every droid hero for the win one by one.

Well, with the glad/blast combo we played only 1 squad of blasts and 3 glads, vs 4 squads of quasatch hunters and 3 squads of jawas. The map had a lot of hieght in the middle of the map and the glad/blast IG88A team is insanely fast. The Blasts kept their distance advantage on the jawas and the glads pick excellent choke points. After the Glad/blast team won we reset the jawa/quasatch team in the start zone and kept playing. Ig88A still managed the win after all his droids were gone. Maybe it was a fluke though?

Just made me concerned.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

I'd be curious to see if the top tier Glads/Blast army still holds up against another top tier classic army like Grimnak/Heavies with a bunch of Glads/Blasts removed to pay for IG-88A.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

The following needs to be added to IG-88A:

JABBA THE HUTT : Underworld Connections
Being a figure who follows the Independent faction, the IG-88A may benefit from Jabba the Hutt's UNDERWORLD CONNECTIONS turn bonding special power.

Re: The Holocron of IG-88A

While neither of these figures would ever be included in an IG-88A army, FX-7 and C-3PO (Deity) are both Droid heroes that benefit from Droid Revolution.

As an aside, I'm really looking forward to seeing IG-88A armies once the prequel droids start coming.
