    TylerTT got a reaction from Caimheul1313 in Second edition wishlist (yes, I know it’s early)   
    this game was more or less made second edition proof thanks to the living rulebook and their pretty liberal use of points and erata to balance stuff.

    if this game adds scatter im out. extra steps in attack resolution are a big rabbit hole I dont want them to go down. look at 40K's 6 dice rolls to resolve a single attack once all the special rules get stacked on top of each other.

    Aha, I actually am familiar with that. Thank you for the explanation. I would rather that not make it into the game either. I'm not even a fan of templates. Awkwardly hovering a pie plate over the battlefield while arguing with your opponent about which models it is floating over is not my idea of fun.

    Obviously means 40k scatter from 7th edition. In the event you are not familiar with it, it used blast templates to determine the number of models hit by the attack, and d6 to "scatter" the templates randomly or hit directly depending on how one rolled. Not a fun mechanic.

    This is legion. It would be un assembled and un painted. It's a trumped up model kit with some nice paper work and it's likely a model kit made for easy assembly with as few parts as possible. In other words the cheapest kind of model kit.
    FFG knows it can sell things that are 80-100 bucks. It knows the AT-AT will sell this game hard and they want to sell this game hard.

    FFG sells epic pre painted x-wing ships for sub $100 dollars. Those are pretty dang huge kits.
    FFG would likely look to that price point for an unpainted 16 inch AT-AT.
    Also forge world is over produced extremely niche model kits. I would never expect FFG to go that route.

    I drew a line to help account for the pose to find the trueish height of the models
    I think luke is one of the smallest AI figures. and it does not help that he is squatting and the legion luke is in a batters pose.

    In some ways, the cheapest way to try the game is to buy Wrecking Crew and your hero of choice.  Wrecking Crew doesn't use any cards from the Core box, so can play straight out of the pack, if you have your own counters.

    I never even bought Wookiee’s because they weren’t a part of the rebel alliance. Even the new republic wouldn’t send help to free them after ROTJ. It was chewy and Han calling in a lot of favors and like one or two other named Wookiees that escaped.
    the Wookiee unit is clear Ewok erasure and I won’t stand for it!

    Yikes what a thread! So much angst. 
     
    if you do ever wish to give legion a shot I would simply put your current bases on top of your legion bases. Use blue tack for non permanent. And don’t bother for casual games. It’s just 2mm diff.

    So, this isn't the worst thing in the world, it may not even be completely unreasonable. But it is a couple of companies (FFG and AMG in particular) going from great customer service to, well not great. So today, literally this very day, instead of posting some silly thing about the clone armies I am facing now having their emperor turn on them, I was posting about how I had to drive back to the game store because I was missing a part. It doesn't mean I will never by from Asmodee again, they buy some good companies. It does mean, as tauntaunscout pointed out, my bar for purchase has changed. Shore troopers, rebel vets, and the upgrades packs just got bumped. I will probably still grab inferno squad, maybe commando droids. But I think I just gave up on the B2s. Maybe if it took me longer to run afoul of the policy I would be more laid back, but 3 days after I heard about it it happened, and it left me raw. In the grand scheme of things, maybe the number of us who run afoul of this policy aren't enough to matter, but it sucks, I don't like it and I have said so. YMMV

    so the computer terminals are an interesting item. when I saw they had separate screens I thought, "oh man you could light those things" infact the way the kit is designed im sure a skilled modeler could light the whole thing and it would look amazing.

    but they didn't do the smart thing and cast the computer screens in clear plastic. so its kind of an oddly engineered kit. but well nobody is Bandai on their first try.

    Do some research and you will find a very vocal group of people who don’t like the last jedi. Where there are scientific papers discussing how bots boosted the traffic of conflicting opinions. 
     
    there is no way of knowing how large the group of people who did not like TLJ is. Anecdotes do not apply. 
     
    I bought the $80 dollar godfather board game for $25. Therefore godfather must be a bad movie that no one likes.

    nothing at all like goofy empire that chokes each other, loses to Ewoks and manages to have two super space stations blown up 🙄. Its like this whole series is some sort of fun sci-fantasy based on buck rogers and 7th samurai.
