The Battle Droid is a small based Trooper for the Droid Army faction. At a cost of 10 points, he comes with a small missile launching attack and a speed of 4 tix. His special power is Recruit for a Droid Army.
Like all Series 1 Star Wars Attacktix, this was a new sculpt, featuring spindly limbs and remarkably painted black eyes.
The Battle Droid's small missile launcher is average in its strength, making it better suited for attacking figures with smaller bases that are not in formation.
With a small base and a spindly sculpt, the Battle Droid has little plastic to help keep it upright in the event of an attack. Furthermore, if its non-launching arm is raised, it provides another target for an opponent's launcher attacks.
Battle Droids may be used as swarm figures to maximize the probability of their special power activating and bringing another two Battle Droids into play. They may also be used in isolation to fill in 10 point gaps in teams that might benefit from their special power, which does not require any other figures to be in play.
The Battle Droid is occasionally seen in tournament play, particularly as a support launcher Trooper in an otherwise striker-heavy team whose figures require a Trooper for their special powers to activate.
