If you have listened to our podcast The Fifth Trooper or our sister cast Notorious Scoundrels, you know that since January I have been running a 12-activation list that I loved. It didn’t have any heroes; it didn’t have any truly costly units; it was just a wall of units coming down at you (if you haven’t heard of it or need a refresher it is to the right).
I loved this list for several reasons:

“Ezra, the armor I wear is five hundred years old. I reforged it to my liking, but the battles, the history, the blood all lives within it. And the same goes for every Mandalorian.”
–Sabine Wren, Star Wars: Rebels
Art and war don’t often mix, but Sabine Wren is one of the rare exceptions. Carrying on the warrior traditions of her Mandalorian forebears, she is a formidable warrior, equally skilled in both ranged and hand-to-hand combat.
