Decided to bump and old thread instead of starting a new one.
We're in the middle of a Jabba's Realm App campaign.
The player controlling Jarrod often deploys J4X-7 and positions him smartly in the thick of enemy troops. When it's the empire's turn to activate, they often target the "closest rebel figure." As stated above, rebel companions are rebel figures, so J4X-7 will eat shot(s).
What's everyone's experience with this so far?
Should we use the spirit of the imperial rule to ignore J4X or is it fairly balanced because there is a cost (strain) to bring him out again?
