Star Wars: Noghri Kill Team
A team of Darth Vader's crack Noghri commandos probes ahead of an Imperial Army force scouring a remote jungle world in search of a Rebel base said to be hidden there. Well, if the Rebels are here, the Noghri will find them...and most likely finish them!
I'm not much interested in any of the post episode six Star Wars stuff. I've read one Timothy Zahn novel, and though it was heartily recommended by a couple of good friends, I really struggled to get through it. Just didn't work for me.
I do like the story of the Noghri, though, and the way in which Darth Vader creates a horribe problem for them, then offers them a solution which, of course, involves them swearing complete fealty to himself. Sounds familiar. Thus a race not necessarily wicked is ensnared by evil.
The minis are also a lot of fun, (though of course, you only get two poses)...and they offer a chance to add something to your Imperial forces which is in stark contrast to most of what the Imperium has...
...the Noghri being both non humans and close combat specialists, elements which are generally not to be found in Imperial armies.
Those Rebs have got to be around here somewhere!
Anyway, a nice addition to my Imperials. Should be able to get an actual game going here, soon!
