Nice tanks. Exactly the kind of figures I want on the front line.

interesting... I love the regular one, I'm wondering if the Elite is overpriced (or underwhelming power wise) as you only go up 2 health (so 4 total) and a +2damage surge... probably is balanced well, but it seems like you could find a better use for the 3 additional points.

Super excited for these guys though! can't wait to try a whole Wookiee team.

It's also interesting that, for once, the reinforcement cost has been rounded up, instead of down.

But then again, is there any way to reinforce a rebel figure at all, where this number would be relevant?

Future Command Cards may make use of the Reinforcement cost.

The gray version is definitely overpowered, clearly a bad attempt to weaken 4x4. Insanely high damage, Insanely high health, Surprisingly low cost. Elite version is pretty disappointing by comparison to the gray. However its really on par with other units of that range. If it was me, the Gray version would have 10 hp instead.

Just letting you know, the reinforcement cost for a few other Rebels. Such as Sabs. Round up

I would suggest looking at the round down ones as having a Squad tax, while the round up as having a Reinforce tax. However since the only round ups seem to be Rebel at the moment... Only really Tusken Raider can be said to have a Squad Tax

At first I also thought that the price increase for the Elites seemed a lot given how little the health increase is, but the extra health also makes it more likely you'll be able to get off Fury attacks, and with the improved damage surge, that's quite a bit more offensive potential.

So I guess this could be the new Royal Guards? FFG may be banking on selling multiple copies of this pack to each player. Hello $$$ devil

thats a great point I hadn't thought of. Having Fury and 8 health left is a nice advantage and does really allow you to take full advantage of that extra surge point of damage.

The Elites are perfectly balanced, Right on par with other Elites of its kind.

It's the gray's that are problematic, they have 1 HP too much. Especially since they really didn't need to. Rebels would use a 4pt body with 10 hp front liner regardless. Gives Gaarkhan some solid backup.

Actually Gaarkhan is a perfect example of why it should have been 10 hp. Since he has 10 Hp for 8 points.

If we look at the Imperial Royal Guard, I think these wookies are well balanced for the same price.
