    Savate reacted to Caimheul1313 in New Unit Ranks   
    I don't think we will. Artillery falls into the category of either Support or Heavy depending on the chassis (self propelled artillery vehicle is probably Heavy, while mortars would probably be Support). In the real world at least, the typical "engineering corps" on the frontlines are combat engineers, trained to fight as well as perform engineering tasks (unofficial mottos often take the form of "First we dig 'em, then we die in 'em").  Regardless, such a unit definitely falls under "Support" since their role is to support the rest of the army. 
    Most games that have such ranks only have a few, since part of the whole point of ranks is to limit the combination of units possible. By having the AT-RT, Tauntauns, and 1.4 FD all considered Support, it prevents a player from having 3 Support Vehicle AT-RTS, 3 Support Trooper Tauntaun, and 3 Support Artillery 1.4 FDs. You can only have a total of 3 from those three units, and the selection will create a particular flavour/playstyle for your army.

    Savate reacted to Slugrage in New city battle board   
    I'm slowly becoming a fan of NOT putting the streets parallel to the board edges. It just makes the firing lanes for long-range attacks like the AT-ST mortar way too easy. I like putting everything on about a 20 to 30 degree slant off of parallel. I find that it forces more movement and not just the long shots.
    But yeah, cool board.

    Few updated pictures of my trenches from a game last night.  Played key terrain, with the center terrain piece being a section of trench.  Made for some great trench warfare moments with space Maxims (E-Webs) being taken out by space trenchguns (Fleet trooper scatter guns), Wookiee trench raiders, and plenty of sniper fire.

    Yeah, absolutely understand that!  But take a look at the first line of this article on the bikes: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2018/2/23/racing-into-action/
    I am definitely looking into terrain that works well with all types of units. I think it’s important to provide both terrain that makes navigating tough but also allows you to use the advantages of units as well. Definitely makes the game more fun, strategic, and interesting. I agree that it’s been known for awhile so shouldn’t cause any new distress, but it stinks that the T-47 has a huge base and should have the easiest time going over buildings.

    Well, the game has only been out for a year and they've had to squeeze in a bunch of other stuff.  I imagine that it will be the next support unit for the Empire.  In fact, they could pair it with Tauntaun outriders for the Rebels as their scout unit.

    Savate reacted to NEBELWERFER in *UPDATE* - Hasbro AT-AT next to Legion Models - Some Scale Photos   
    *UPDATE* Final "build" pic on page 2.
    Hi folks,
    I took a pic of an old Hasbro AT-AT next to the Star Wars Miniatures game AT-AT (with a Legion AT-ST and Legion Stormtrooper) for scale.

    I also found some screenshots from Empire Strikes Back showing the scale in the movies next to Luke.

    The Hasbro AT-AT obviously has a huge head compared to the body. Other that that, any thoughts?

    I'm betting that the next specialists will likely be something more specific, such as C-3po and R2 (if they aren't made into an operative team). Or we might get the chance to add ISB agents to a squad to "improve performance."

    Savate reacted to TauntaunScout in Trying to choose a faction!   
    Buy two core sets. Unlike most games you will need, not want, a second set of dice ($15) and a are required to get a 3rd corps unit ($25) so at that point a $90 core set is only $50. Minus the OTHER two units you'll get for your chosen army (corps, vehicle, $25 each) the second core set is... FREE. I'm using MSRP but the numbers hold up for discount sites too. If you are hard up for cash you can't afford NOT to get two core sets.
    Then just buy an extra $12 hero or two for each side: Chewie, Boba Fett, Emporer, Leia, Han... doesn't matter at this point, whoever you think looks cool. Personally I'd buy 1 extra commander and 1 extra operative for each side. AKA, Chewie and Boba with Veers or Palpatine and Leia or Han.
    If you buy two core sets and any two heroes you now have two legal 800 point armies to play with and find your preferences. Later on this will become your loaner army for future newbies and/or something to bust out for casual games where you feel like a change.
    When you decide which faction to follow, the new upgrade cards (grenades, gear, etc.) from it will transfer over to your "secondary" army keeping it fresh and interesting. Because of this, Legion's not a game the requires you to buy 1 of everything for each faction to "keep up".
    Someday when a really killer figure that you just "have to have" comes out for the other side, you'll have an army to plug it into. Also the worst thing that could happen if you are tight for cash is to accidentally invest in the "wrong" army for you. By having just over 800 points of the other force laying around, you can always switch gears.
    Two core sets and a hero or two for each faction. You don't have to buy it all at once, but this is the way to do it if you're  trying to stretch your dollars-to-fun ratio. You COULD buy a core set and swap the contents with someone and start "following" that faction but if you are already feeling some indecision, just keep an eye out for sales, get a second core set, two to four heroes, and play awhile. 
    Don't be intimidated. As time goes on and "keeping up" with the new units gets daunting, be patient! On cyber-Monday I got a $17 AT-ST, a $9 snowspeeder, and several $50 core sets!
