This guy. ---^

It's almost like, I don't know, he built the card. What do you think @Ardaedhel?

On topic, he looks like an excellent commander with an extremely steep learning curve, but almost no skill ceiling. Time will tell how he hashes out.

Booooooo! Stick with your Rebel leanings! Don't be the Erisi Dlarit of Armada!

Seems more like an inverse of Kallus to me. Also, I clearly need to reread the Rogue Squadron books because I had to look up that reference.

And from someone calling himself bloody Pallaeon at that.

Put Grodin Tierce in front of me (or worse, a Flim) and I'll call you on it. ;)

I just recently reread the Rogue Squadron/Wraith Squadron/Dinner Squadron books, and they are just as fun as I remember.  I had to put down "I Jedi" but Starfighters of Adumar still made me actually laugh out loud while reading it several times.

Thrawn - At the start of the game, set aside 3 command dials of your choice. Then once per turn at the beginning of the turn, you spend a set aside dial and every friendly ship will receive an additional dial matching the spent dial when they activate.

 

There may be some specific timing I am forgetting but that is the general gist of it.

I find this on DA...I know its not a big thing....but why did they use the old Thrawn image, since they changed him. I know its a little off topic but...thats just me....I think the image below would have been more awesome

*Edit* Disregard. Missed a post in between.

This version seems to be a hybrid of Legends Thrawn and Newcanon Thrawn.

 

It's got Legends Thrawn's monochrome red eyes, lack of forehead curves, and lack of code cylinders.

 

But it's got Newcanon Thrawn's shoulder boards. Legends Thrawn had gold braid on his shoulders - this one doesn't.

... what exactly does Thrawn actually do?  Like, help me read the card here. 

1. Trigger boarding actions not caring about enemy ICBs or slicers and not wasting the officer slot with veteran captains.

2. Command squadrons not caring about enemy slicers at the same time you navigate.

3. Ey! Look at this! An engineering command just at time.

4. 3 rounds of combat. All of them with additional dice and without loosing more valuable commands like squadrons or navigate.

5. Gozantis that provide tokens at the same time they use a dial.

6. Double speed change. Boosted engineering commands. +1 squadron activation without hangar. Dice+reroll. 

7. Actually almost whatever you could imagine you will need eventually.

I mean, I'm happy Thrawn's coming, and in the best possible way, in an ISD pack, but he's just a little too good. If it were 2 dials instead of three, he'd still be amazing but now I'd actually consider other commanders that aren't Motti or Sloane...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: As a Rebel player, I'm looking forward to killing Thrawn. If I'm lucky, I do it before he gets off all 3 of his commands, too. He's going to be good, but he won't be an automatic win.

You're welcome to try, Rebel scum ;)

 

Come deeper into my trap.
