Need more Empire Corps troops -- Which of the three?

Recommended Posts

I am an emerging empire player,and only own 2 units of storms (starter box) and one unit of snow Troopers.

Any thoughts on if I should purchase Shore Troopers, or go with double snows, or another third unit of Storms from the expansion?

Budget is tight, players in the area pretty experienced and hard-hitting. advice greatly appreciated.

Excellent everyone, thanks again.  One more question while we're at it -- heavy support, with the point cost reduction for the AT-ST do you

recommend it over the tank, or are both viable for their obvious differences? I will only get one of the two for a long while.

If you're only getting one, I think the tank is the right choice. The AT-ST shines with a pilot from the tank, and has a hard time making up its points without it. I've heard nothing but positive reviews from the tank.

That said, I use neither. I would put the money into specialists and operatives instead.

Tank is better because it has more card options. I would recommend NOT picking one up until you have 2 core sets, at least 1 shores, dts, snipers, Krennic, veers and boba/bossk. It is good, but these are much easier to use and you will use them more often, unless you love the tank. The meta is changing tho, so a tank could be super viable

Many thanks Cleto0 and

@Eruletho,  It's good to be informed and shore troopers are next on the list.  I really enjoy the look of the tank so it's helpful to know the choice is solid -- when I'm ready for it.  I plan on a really dirty, streaked and chipped exterior which will be so much fun to paint and model.

I'll post fresh questions if I have them later, time to start experimenting with lists on my own.
Cheers gents.
