Imperial – Having seen my Commander reduced to half health in the last round, I was concerned that he would be targeted early this round if I didn’t react quickly.
Even though Krennic usually takes very little part in the battle, I would be at a distinct disadvantage without his command cards and buffs. My priority then was to pull him out of the fire. With such a large order pool the odds of drawing Krennic early were low, meaning I really needed to place an order on him.

Round 2 - Orders

As the rebels had used a 1 pip in the previous round, I didn’t anticipate their remaining 1 pip being played just yet. I opted for ‘Deploy the Garrison’ placing one order on Krennic and the other on the southern Shoretrooper unit. I also had Krennic’s Entourage ability, allowing me to place an order on the Death Troopers. In addition to this, the Shoretroopers used the Holo Projector they had found in the previous round to give themselves an order, allowing them to coordinate a further order to the E-Webb!

Round 2 - Orders

Rebels – My Pathfinders on the southern flank weren’t going to be able to break cover anytime soon. I had also folded the northern flank to target the Imperials moving towards the central objectives but still had the approaching bikes to contend with. Worse still, the imperial gun line was now dug in with their weapons in range.

Round 2 - Orders

One of Krennic’s strategic abilities is that if there is a tie for priority when one of his commander cards are played, he automatically wins priority. I suspected he would play a 1 or 2 pip in order to retreat so attempting to win priority may well be a wast of a card this turn.

Round 2 - Orders

My troubles didn’t end here however. I was also going into this turn with a fair amount of Suppression on my units. Weighing all of this up, I went with ‘Complete the Mission’. This would save my lower pip cards while also mitigating the effects of panic and suppression this round. I would have to dig in and see how this turn panned out!
