establishing a base set

since the game ended its new products, i have moved to a new area and have met a bunch or new recruits who are eager to learn how to play this game. but this game is a little overwhelming with its 800+ pieces.

so i thought i would start with the first 2 sets, rebel storm and clone strike.

so what im wondering is if somepeople could help me to remember what the game was like back then and what dominated. and if any newer pieces could be added to that original 120 or even addaed to help balance it out.

i remember aurra dominated, and shock therapy was pretty tough to beat. a counter to override was needed.

any feedback would be appreciated.

Definately the Ugnaught Demoltionist. Other than that, you may want to add some of the Rebel, Imperial, Republic, and Sep pieces from ROTS and Universe. Not the super powerful pieces, but some of them add some nice balance.
Well I hope you have multiple Aurra Sings because she seemed to  be in every single squad back then lol.  Seriously though....

The game was 100 pt back then, it is easy for new players to get through games quickly.

Other Satchel Charge characters Human Engineer and Imperial Engineer could be handy to have.

I think if you brought in the most powerful commanders earlier it might be interesting because the most powerful followers won't be available and you will get a lot of play out of units that never saw play.  I'm thinking mostly of the Separatists but it is true of all the Factions. Don't bring them all in too fast but if you see it getting stale there is plenty to keep it interesting.
