Star Wars Miniatures - Bounty Hunters Preview Images #5

Garindan is an Imperial Spy who ratted out Han Solo, Chewbacca, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, R2-D2 and C-3P0 all at the same time! This thug will smash anybody he gets paid for!

  • Star Wars Miniatures: Garindan Strategy Tips

    Garindan's a sneaky twerp and, like the Mustafarian Soldier, he has a giant nose! Shuffle him into position with your last action in a round and cross your fingers that you go first. If you do, he'll give someone else a 30-point [kwlink]power-up[/kwlink] to their Damage and knock one of your opponent's big troops on their butt! Then move the rest of your troops up to cover him and repeat the combo as many times as you can.

  • Star Wars Miniatures: Weequay Thug Strategy Tips

    Face it, he's a [kwlink]punk[/kwlink] and he's going to get splattered by the first Jedi he looks at funny. But, he's super cheap and can help boost the Attack of a heavy hitter. Plus, nobody's going to shoot at him because everything else in your squad is more worthwhile to blast to bits.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Bounty Hunters Preview Images #4

    Dannik Jerriko is a vampiric Anzati mercenary who drinks the life-force of his opponents and calls it soup! The famous bounty hunter Zuckuss is a Gand Findsman who uses the Force to see the future.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Dannik Jerriko Fig Info

    Figure: Dannik Jerriko
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 23
    Hit Points: 70
    Defense: 17
    Attack: +9
    Damage: 10
    Set #: 25/60
    Rarity: Very Rare
    Special Abilities:
  • Unique
  • Cunning Attack - +4 Attack and +10 Damage against an enemy who has not activated this round.
  • Drain Life Energy - Whenever he defeats an adjacent living enemy, remove all damage from this character.
  • Proboscises - Replaces turn: Make an attack at +10 Damage against an adjacent living enemy. If this attack hits, the enemy is considered activated this round; save 11.
  • Stealth - If this character has cover, he does not count as the nearest enemy for an attacker farther than six squares when choosing targets.
  • Star Wars Miniatures: Dannik Jerriko Strategy Tips

    He's no good at battling big bruisers, but if you can sneak him around to the side or rear of your opponent's troops he's great! His Defense and Hit Points let him take a few hits, and constantly healing as he slurps up the soup of the weak figs or wounded big guys will make sure he's a serious problem for your opponent!

    Star Wars Miniatures - Zuckuss Fig Info

    Figure: Zuckuss
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 22
    Hit Points: 40
    Defense: 15
    Attack: +8
    Damage: 20
    Set #: 53/60
    Rarity: Rare
    Special Abilities:
  • Unique
  • Accurate Shot - Can attack an enemy with cover even if it's not the nearest enemy.
  • Bounty Hunter - +4 Attack against Unique enemies.
  • Intuition - Once per round, after Initiative is determined, this character can immediately move up to six squares before any other character activates.
  • Rapport - A character whose name contains 4-LOM costs one less when in the same squad as this character.
  • Star Wars Miniatures: Zuckuss Strategy Tips

    Other than the obvious 4-LOM teamup, this Gand mercenary has a big edge on running away! At the end of your turn, march him out of cover and blast someone, then start the next turn by having him use his Intuition to realize that standing out in the open with less Defense than a Stormtrooper is a good way to get blown up, and pop him back into cover! Or, use his Intuition to get him closer to a target, then move him the rest of the way when it's his turn.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Bounty Hunters Preview Images #3

    Lando Calrissian went undercover as Tamteel Skreej to help rescue Han Solo from the clutches of Jabba the Hutt. The Mustafarian Soldier guards the Separatists' smelting facilities on fiery Mustafar.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Tamteel Skreej Fig Info

    Figure: Tamteel Skreej [Lando Calrissian]
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 23
    Hit Points: 50
    Defense: 18
    Attack: +8
    Damage: 20
    Set #: 47/60
    Rarity: Very Rare
    Special Abilities:
  • Unique - Counts as Lando Calrissian.
  • Cleave - Once per turn, if this character defeats an adjacent enemy by making an attack, he can make one immediate attack against another adjacent enemy.
  • Double Attack - On his turn, this character can make one extra attack instead of moving.
  • Melee Attack - Can attack only adjacent enemies.
  • Opportunist - +4 Attack and +10 Damage against an enemy who has activated this round.
  • Stealth - If this character has cover, he does not count as the nearest enemy for an attacker farther than six squares when choosing targets.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Tamteel Skreej Strategy Tips

    This Lando-in-disguise fig is pretty basic. The best thing to do with him is stick him in cover around a corner and force your opponent to get past him. Any goons that walk up to him will get attacked twice for bonus damage, and it works even better if two enemies come after him at the same time!

    Star Wars Miniatures - Mustafarian Soldier Fig Info

    Figure: Mustafarian Soldier
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 12
    Hit Points: 10
    Defense: 12
    Attack: +4
    Damage: 20
    Set #: 42/60
    Rarity: Common
    Special Abilities:
  • Careful Shot +4 - On this character's turn, if he doesn't move, he gets +4 Attack.
  • Deadeye - On this character's turn, if he doesn't move, he gets +10 Damage.
  • Sniper - Other characters do no provide cover against this character's attack.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Mustafarian Soldier Strategy Tips

    He's fairly cheap and can attack even if his target is in melee, which makes him great for picking off enemy Jedi after you stick them in combat with a tough troop. But, he needs to stand still to get his attack bonus, so make sure you put a tough fig in front of him or he'll get his giant nose blown off!

    The Aqualish Assassin works for the Black Sun mob! The Rodian Hunt Master is an expert warrior among his people.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Aqualish Assassin Fig Info

    Figure: Aqualish Assassin
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 7
    Hit Points: 20
    Defense: 15
    Attack: +7
    Damage: 10
    Set #: 15/60
    Rarity: Common
    Special Abilities:
  • Black Sun - If a character whose name contains Xizor or Vigo is in the same squad, this character gains Grenades 10(Replaces attacks: Range 6; 10 damage to target and to each character adjacent to that target: save 11).
  • Melee Attack - Can attack only adjacent enemies.
  • Opportunist - +4 Attack and +10 Damage against an enemy who has activated this round.
  • Stealth - If this character has cover, he does not count as the nearest enemy for an attacker farther than six squares when choosing targets.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Aqualish Assassin Strategy Tips

    Without his Black Sun mob bosses to power him up, this guy is pretty weak. With them you can sneak this guy up into cover and toss grenades at your opponent's warriors, then use his Opportunist ability against anyone who gets too close.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Rodian Hunt Master Fig Info

    Figure: Rodian Hunt Master
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 22
    Hit Points: 40
    Defense: 16
    Attack: +7

    Rarity: Uncommon
    Special Abilities:
  • Deadeye - On this character's turn, if he doesn't move, he gets +10 Damage.
  • Rapport - Costs one less when in the same squad as a character named Jabba the Hutt.

  • Commander Effect:
  • Non-Unique followers within six squares gain Deadeye.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Rodian Hunt Master Strategy Tips

    He isn't much good on his own, but if you team him up with a bunch of stealthy allies who have Cunning Attack, Careful Shot, Double Attack, or all three abilities, then he can give them a nice boost. Just make sure to keep him under cover so he doesn't get blasted!

    The Klatooinian Hunter is a mercenary working for Jabba the Hutt. Tusken Raiders are vicious creatures from the desert world of Tatooine.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Klatooinian Hunter Fig Info

    Figure: Klatooinian Hunter
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 11
    Hit Points: 10
    Defense: 12
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 30
    Set #: 8/60
    Rarity: Common
    Special Abilities:
  • Black Sun - If a character whose name contains Xizor or Vigo is in the same squad, this character gains Grenades 10 (Replaces attacks: Range 6; 10 damage to target and to each character adjacent to that target: save 11).
  • Heavy Weapon - Can't attack and move in the same turn.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Klatooinian Hunter Strategy Tips

    With 30 Damage this guy must be hunting spaceships! He only has +3 to hit though, so he needs a commander who can boost that. A Black Sun commander is even better, because it gives him an attack he can use while he moves up to use his bazooka.

    Star Wars Miniatures - Tusken Raider Sniper Fig Info

    Figure: Tusken Raider Sniper
    Faction: Fringe
    Cost: 8
    Hit Points: 10

  • Careful Shot +4 - On this character's turn, if he doesn't move, he gets +4 Attack.
  • Sniper - Other characters do no provide cover against this character's attack.
  • Star Wars Miniatures - Tusken Raider Sniper Strategy Tips

    A cheaper version of the Mustafarian Soldier, this desert raider is good for helping your melee troops out. Send a bunch of them in to tie up your opponent's warriors, then start blasting away!
