Sick of Rebel Troopers

Recommended Posts

I have a hard time tolerating the defensive inefficiency of my Rebel troopers. The last several games have not been fun and more on the frustrating side (when playing Rebels) for me so I thought I would try something else and see if I can work around it.

+Luke Skywalker 160
Force Reflexes, Force Push, Emergency Stims, 
+Sabine Wren 125
Electro Grappling Line, Personal Combat Shield, 
*Rebel Troopers 40
*Rebel Troopers 40
*Rebel Troopers 40
+Rebel Commandos (Strike Team) 16
DH-447 Sniper, 
+Rebel Commandos (Strike Team) 16
DH-447 Sniper, 
+X-34 Landspeeder 75
Outer Rim Speeder Jockey, RPS-6 Rocket Gunner, Mark II Medium Blaster, 
I've got a 104 points for another unit.  Pathfinders or maybe dropping something and putting in some Wookiees. 
The other thing I have not tried is a large group of Commandos either naked or with another sniper. I don't think Leia helps me much here.
What do you guys think or what has worked for you ?  I guess the other thing I could do is spam more troopers and have them solely be concerned about the objectives and see if Sabine and Luke can distract the bad guys enough to allow them to live and complete the mission

Defensively, the main differences between anything you get is a question of Key words.

104 is enough for

Rebel Pathfinders (68) + Pao (22) + Duck and Cover (8) + A300 short/long range config (6)

Or an AT-RT with any hard point and an HQ uplink (or a flamer/rotary + jammer)

Either of which have significantly more passive defense than the troopers.

In my experience with Rebels I’ve found I need to take Dodge actions more than I initially wanted to. 

Dodge - Shoot is often the preferred turn for a Rebel Trooper unit.

Move - Dodge is common. 

And don’t forget Nimble! You get that dodge token for the whole turn.

 

Leia can be a huge help in handing out those dodge tokens and freeing up troopers to get an aim action every once in awhile. 

Try different stuff and find what you have fun with! 

My advice would be to embrace the chaos of the Z-6 and make sure you’re getting dodge tokens.
