    Christmas Core set… now what?

    A core set is enough to get you started but not enough to play a legal point game. You will find from a competitive standpoint the t-47 and at-st are not the right fit, but for pure Star Wars flavor they are fantastic. the sides do play differently especially at the trooper level (of which you need min 3 in a proper game and the core comes with 2) they are very opposite of each other. There is some mirroring between some of the units and some that very. I normally play dark side in everything, yet the rebels are really fun to run. i like playing veers and 3 speeder bikes for the mobility, commandos are my new favorite unit. (Haven’t run palp/imperial guards yet). I prefer a sit back and shoot and mobile in as opposed to run in and engage in melee.

    Please ffg post about clone wars.

    May 2019 is also the 20th anniversary of TPM. If they don’t release product, I would expect at least an announcement

    New FFG Legion Playmats

    I have a folding table that is to small, I went down to Home Depot and got 3 precut sheets of 1/4” MDF 2’x3’ and just put those on the table to extend the size to 6’x3’ Orginally I just went to hobby lobby and got on of their larger role of terrain grass and covered them which worked fine, though I did eventually just get a neoprene mat sonot covered over the edges and smoothed out some of the inconsistencies. then I just built a new dining room table for the game lol. For a first furniture making attempt it turned out well

    Team Battles

    I posted it in the terrain section. The game actually ended up being cancelled. But I am hopeful to get it in soon.

    Robot City Terrian

    During the Clone Wars a small detachment of clone troopers and battle droids led astray on a distant world, a robotic planet. There OOM-113 “The Wise” and OOM-714 “The Conquerer” led an army to defeat the dread Clone Troopers. Now decades later the Empire and Rebel Alliance find themselves on the same planet, where droids are immortalized.

    Team Battles

    Doing a team battle tomorrow to introduce 3 new people to the game. I am also using my new robot city board, so I'm excited to get that on the table. If anyone has any other experience that want to share please let me know.

    Team Battle - 4 Player Lists

    I am introducing 3 new people to the game tomorrow. So I am going to use team battles as the way to do so. Since I am supplying all the figures I tired to make 4 balanced teams so everyone had fun and it feels sorta Star Wars'y. I wanted to get feedback if anyone thinks this looks balanced or something missing or other suggestions. I didn't use At-ST or Snowspeeder because they are alot of points, I still have 2 more speeder bikes and a 3rd at-rt that could be swapped in. I am maxed out on troops so I can not make any changes there. Ironically all 4 players ended up at 598 through happenstance. Rebel 1 Total Points: 598 Luke Skywalker 160 UPGRADES PTS Force Push 10 Battle Meditation 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 186 Rebel Troopers 40 UPGRADES PTS Z-6 Trooper 22 Rebel Trooper 10 Emergency Stims 8 Total Points: 80 Rebel Troopers 40 UPGRADES PTS Z-6 Trooper 22 Rebel Trooper 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 78 Fleet Troopers 44 UPGRADES PTS Scatter Gun Trooper 23 Fleet Trooper 11 Targeting Scopes 6 Impact Grenades 5 Total Points: 89 AT-RT 55 UPGRADES PTS AT-RT Flamethrower 25 Total Points: 80 AT-RT 55 UPGRADES PTS AT-RT Rotary Blaster 30 Total Points: 85 Rebel 2 - Total Points: 598 Leia Organa 90 UPGRADES PTS Commanding Presence 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 106 Han Solo 120 UPGRADES PTS Esteemed Leader 5 Hunter 6 Emergency Stims 8 Total Points: 139 Rebel Troopers 40 UPGRADES PTS Z-6 Trooper 22 Rebel Trooper 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 83 Rebel Troopers 40 UPGRADES PTS Z-6 Trooper 22 Rebel Trooper 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 83 Rebel Troopers 40 UPGRADES PTS Z-6 Trooper 22 Rebel Trooper 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 83 Rebel Commandos Strike Team 16 UPGRADES PTS DH-447 Sniper 28 Grappling Hooks 3 Long-Range Comlink 10 Total Points: 57 Rebel Commandos Strike Team 16 UPGRADES PTS DH-447 Sniper 28 Grappling Hooks 3 Total Points: 47 Empire 1 Total Points: 598 Darth Vader 200 UPGRADES PTS Force Push 10 Force Reflexes 15 Saber Throw 10 Total Points: 235 Stormtroopers 44 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19 Stormtrooper 24 Stormtrooper 11 Emergency Stims 8 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 92 Stormtroopers 44 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19 Stormtrooper 24 Stormtrooper 11 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 84 Stormtroopers 44 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19 Stormtrooper 24 Stormtrooper 11 Grappling Hooks 3 Concussion Grenades 5 Total Points: 87 UNIT:74-Z Speeder Bikes 90 UPGRADES PTS Long-Range Comlink 10 Total Points: 100 Empire 2 Total Points: 598 Boba Fett 140 Total Points: 140 General Veers 80 UPGRADES PTS Commanding Presence 10 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 96 Stormtroopers 44 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19 Stormtrooper 24 Stormtrooper 11 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 85 Stormtroopers 44 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19 Stormtrooper 24 Stormtrooper 11 Targeting Scopes 6 Total Points: 85 Snowtroopers 48 UPGRADES PTS Flametrooper 20 Snowtrooper 12 Total Points: 80 E-Web Heavy Blaster Team 55 UPGRADES PTS Barrage Generator 10 Total Points: 65 :Scout Troopers 16 UPGRADES PTS DLT-19x Sniper 28 Grappling Hooks 3 Total Points: 47

    Team Battles

    With the new Team battles rules released we have another exciting option to play the game. I noticed there was no alterations to the force org chart, Min 1 commander and 3 troops for each side and a reduction to 600 point per player. what do you see as being effective in your 600? What synergies will you try for across the team? With the limited points do you expect to see higher costed points like Vader it Luke? any other thoughts? i am looking forward to trying this, though since I supply both sides normally for my friends and I it’s going to be a challenge, but a fun one. if playing team battles and introducing people to the game any suggestions on balanced squads?

    Painted vs Non-Painted

    My army is partially painted, most of the bases are not done yet and I have a stack of stuff to still even be assembled. I find painting a bit of a chore, and I stopped because I had an idea for a whole new terrain board so I spent the last month on that instead. (Month being relative to my available time within it) perfer painted for my self yes, play in painted yes, I just want to lay the game and have fun.

    What to buy first

    I play mostly with friends and yes while not competitve the at-st and the t-47 make the game more star warsy, I did at first also get additional bikes and at-rts so I could have some variety.

    What’s your user name origin story?

    Back in 95 I attempted to write a story while I was laid up recovering from a torn ACL, MCL and meniscus. The main characters where Rghrous and Azavander. I still use Rghrous in some areas, it always entertains me when I google and get credit for a ice berg picture in my Flickr stream that I properly credit to the actually photographer and most people don’t. Because Rghrous was an a 1997 email account, it’s like 99% spam and I only use it for a couple specific things. So I created a newer account for game things with the Azavander handle. I use it for most game things now.
  12. That was pretty entertaining
  13. I am still buying one of each because I want them for a collecting standpoint.

    Reckless Diversion and multiple weapons

    that make perfect sense and how I would have played it but that was not the feeling I was getting reading the string. Thank you

    Reckless Diversion and multiple weapons

    So if that is the case, if the AT-ST focus all weapons its able to on the face up order token, why can it not choose the mortar launcher to focus somewhere else?
