    I just wish that they would make the core box campaign available on the app. I am a person that has every Imperial Assault campaign and expansion, but has only played a handful of skirmish games due to the lack of players in my area and schedule conflicts. If all of the campaigns were available on the app I think that FFG would see a increase in sales.
    Also we should have gotten a Tantive IV  map for skirmish.

    Good catch.  The pictures were taken on my comic shelf, so there's more than a few Batman, Green Lantern, Nightwing, and Power Rangers TPB on there.

    Captain James T. Kirk, Mr Spock, and Klingons would add great diversity and much needed symmetry to this game!!! 
    But all kidding aside I would love to see:
    •    BX-Series Droid Commando
    •    T-series tactical droid & Super Tactical Droid
    •    MagnaGuards
    •    IG Lancer Droid & IG-86 Sentinel Droid
    •    And most importantly for me a Boga with sound effects.

    The Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansion contains everything you need to add this new commander to your Galactic Republic army, including an unpainted Clone Captain Rex miniature that can be assembled without his helmet, or with either a Phase I or Phase II Clone Trooper helmet.

    As promised, here are a few close-up shots of the Tatooine table.







     



    I really enjoyed painting these minis. As many people pointed out, it's true that the mini quality is not on a par with GW one. But I hope that FFG is aware of this and is actively working to improve the quality. Star Wars Legion has a terrific potential to catch people less interested in the rules and more about painting and collecting minis in Star Wars universe at a uniform scale. I can only hope that the rumor is true that FFG is moving to injection molding polystyrene for the Clone Wars minis. This could really unleash all the hobby side potential of this game!

    Hello, 
    Little update with a few pictures of our latest battle on the Tatooine table.
    We played the Moisture vaporator sabotage mission. The rebels commanded by my friend David won the mission thanks to an heroic charge by his Wookies unit. Since I had just finished painting my AT-ST, it was my first time commanding it and, unsurprisingly, I did a few tactical error. Still, I'm really happy because these errors where due to the rock formations in the middle of the board and the rebels being very well hidden behind them 😂. I had a hard time finding line of sight and finished to close to an angry wookie unit. It was a great example of how terrain can impact a game.









     
    Hope you like the pics 😊
    Have a nice day,
    Matt

    Thanks 😊
    @CaptainRocket and @ZealuxMyr Thanks for your feedback on the height issue. Conversions have always been problematic rulewise with miniatures wargaming. To my mind, this is symptomatic of the difference between 2D cardboard wargaming and 3D miniatures wargaming. It’s not surprising that most highly competitive minis wargaming end up as quasi-2D games (e.g. warmachine, 9th age). On the other hand, minis wargaming are more immersive and creative thanks to the third dimension and that’s why I love them.😊
    All the friends I play with know that I’m into narrative-play so line of sight is not an issue. We have an informal gentleman agreement that we call "Medal of Colors" spirit (MoC for short). By playing together we agree that the number one objective is to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies” (we even organize events based on this spirit). I know this can be difficult to understand for highly competitive players but, for us, this spirit always superseeds any ruleset we may have to use depending the era or universe we play. If the ruleset was the law, Medal of Colors spirit would be the constitution.😉
    Most FFG games are highly biaised toward competitive play, yet I think there is room for other styles of play and I think that Star Wars Legion is exceptionally well suited for narrative play (let’s be honest who doesn’t make laser sounds when shooting with stoormtroopers?😅)  We are even considering to organize a Star Wars Legion - Medal of Colors event in the upcoming months.

    Hello everyone,
     
    I'm Matt and I love making terrain for miniature wargaming. I have been working on a Tatooine board for the the last few months and now that it is complete I finally found the time to do a proper photoshoot of the Tatooine board. The two modules are mirror images of each other. This means that each side of one module is compatible with one side of the other module. As a result, these two module can be assembled in 4 configurations as follow:

     

     

     

     
     
     
    I'm really happy with the result. I've already played twice on it with my friend David and  we had a wonderful time. Star wars Legion is a great game with a lot of potential. On my side, I'm already planning my next Star wars Legion board ^^
    I'll try to upload a few closeup pictures of the board when I can.
    Have a nice week-end in a galaxy not so far away,

    Boomer_J reacted to Darth 2Face in TCW How many core sets?   
    The more I consider it, the more I think I will only get one. If I didn't already have 2 GCW cores, I would definitely get 2. However, I don't think I will want more than 2 Phase 1 clone trooper units as more corps units get released. I think I will start with 1 and see what gets released shortly after before committing to a second. I attend very few tournaments, so I can proxy until more stuff is released.

    I might go for 2. I want to built the Grevious with four arms and the one with the cloak but I really want to see. what FFG teases out after the core set before I decide...
