I enjoyed using this Rogue Stars crew, a Golum, a Zoat, a robot, a Zykhee and an alien of some sort.
There is still no substitute for good armour in Rogue Stars, once a model takes damage, its effectiveness reduces very quickly. Apart from armour, the Difficult Target ability is the best defensive protection against incoming ranged attacks. For melee, Weapon Master is the equivalent. But of course Armour benefits a model from both ranged and melee attacks.
We will just keep playing with 300 points so we can tool up our crews that way.
