    Bossk will likely be the second Imperial expansion I don't pick up.  He looks good gameplay wise, but I don't like Bossk (or really any of the other bounty hunters besides Boba).  Oh well.

    Yeah, that's a bit better, but with reds it gets gross...



    Everything but the flamethrower in a full unit throwing this... 5 reds and up to 6 black... with blast and surge to crit?

    That's the best combo for the snow troopers, trow a recon intel on them too, and woo doggie!

    A friend of mine uses this but adds frags to his snowtroopers... With the surge to crit the attack pools get gruesome. Even my imperial units have a difficult time surviving an attack.

    I’ve played against him several times and I have to say, he’s well worth the points to include in an Imperial list. Even if you don’t use his Command cards.
    If he’s used properly, you’ll keep him at range 4 and round after round pickoff unit after unit. If someone makes a play on Bossk (moving into range 3), duck him into cover and let him heal up while moving him back to range 4, then rinse and repeat. At first I thought Bossk’s 3 pip was crap (getting multiple aims for 1 attack) but having 5 crits on 5 dice is insane (no cover, no dodge with Pierce 1). Bossk is a unit that looks like it might be weak on paper (white defense dice and white attack dice), but in game he is a bad *****.

    Bossk is a dork, but he's a bounty hunter. He's a dangling carrot for the bounty hunter prize we all want; 4LOM and Zuckuss. 
    I'm torn on the shoretroopers.

    I've played against him a few times on TTS, he's a wrecking ball at long range. He's just tough to deal with in general.

    Ah, just checked and you're right
    He can still play sniper, lay his dioxin charge and have a nasty melee attack to boot. 
    Give him Hunter and let him hunt?

    I've been using him in Invader.  He's amazing.
    His long range firepower is excellent with aim token access, and his command cards are very solid.  He's definitely vulnerable to burst damage, so you don't want to get him close to any major threats, but luckily he is very effective at range 4.  Regen punishes your opponent for trying to chip damage off him at range.

    He's been pretty effective in this season of the Invader League. I think he'll be a staple of long range suppression lists.

    I haven't used him yet, but he seems cool. He could pair well with scout saboteurs as he can play sniper as well as help detonate any charges they set. 
    He also provides a welcome change to the standard Imperial colour palette

    No it's not. But I AM personally VERY surprised that they did not announce a new dewback unit on National Dewback Day. My family is Lithuanian so we of course also play that old Dewback Jousting game with a spinner and a blindfold. I won way too much candy at it this year, my dentist will be mad.

    These kind of lists kill me. Play what you like not what everyone else says is good. It's more important to know your list than to play the "meta".

    You could drop the extra trooper upgrades and the e-web to get another DLT stormtrooper squad.
    Also I am not a big fan of the mortar launcher on the AT ST. I like the grenade launcher a lot more. If you do the above, you would still have enough leftover points to swap the mortar for the grenade launcher.

    I disagree about them being the best nowadays. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing. I am serious when I say, I think GW's models are too detailed, and I'm tired of the "matrix poses". Overly dynamic posing makes a model fragile, hard to store, hard to game with, etc. They are more detailed, more intricate, better posed... and as a result, WORSE miniatures than what many other people offer now. I liken it to music. The best selling music is not always the best music. I just have no idea who's buying this stuff. The core sets are great but the rest just strikes me as such a lopsided fun-to-dollars conversion, compared to the fun I could convert those dollars to elsewhere, without even talking about other miniatures games.
    The detail (like the rest of the line) is getting stale too. They just keep re-sculpting the same stuff, using auto-CAD to cram more of the same things on. If chaos, they may as well slap a virtual banner on it saying "NOW! With 30% MORE spikes and chains!" or if not chaos, "30% MORE scrolls and candles!".
    They may be historical but there is nothing in terms of technical quality to set GW apart from Perry Bros. It's entirely different subject matter but the sculpting and casting is the same. And they cost less than a dollar apiece for plastic and go up from there. Compared to GW's which start at $5 apiece and go up. I don't get it.
