    It works as mobile cover. It's pretty mean in melee. It can hold/contest objectives without being easily removed.

    The Bishop reacted to tieren in First analysis of the legion meta?   
    After 4 weeks of 56 round robin games of the 45 player Invader League tourney, i'd like to share some stats and lists with y'all. This is right before we head into the top 18 Single Eliminations.
    Round Robin Stats dump: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/408238220527140864/445383043683844097/Round_Robin_Analysis.docx
    Top 18 Lists: http://www.invaderleague.com/league/single-elimination-lists
    (Note that players can change lists between games for round robin, but have to stick to 1 list for the single eliminations. These are the submitted lists for the upcoming single elims)
    Some analysis:
    Out of the top 18 players, only 5 are rebels. However, the top 3 players are rebels.
    Some major archetypes that seem to emerge for the top 18:
    Luke + Leia + Double AT-RT (All the 5 Rebs in top 18 are running some variant of this. The leading player is running double naked AT-RT!) Veers + Double AT-ST (The 2nd most popular archetype with 4 players running this, and most popular among imperials) Vader + Veers + 6 Corp Spam (3 Players) Triple Speeder Bikes (3 Imp lists with this, players run either Veers or Vader) Some stats on the deployment, objectives and conditions:
    Most Played Deployment – Major Offensive – 17/57 (30%) Least Played Deployment – Disarray/The Long March – 8/57 (14%) Most Played Objective – Intercept the Transmissions – 21/57 (37%) Least Played Objective – Key Positions – 7/57 (12%) Most Played Condition – Clear Conditions/Hostile Environment – 15/57 (26%) Least Played Condition – Minefield – 7/57 (12%) Win Rates:
    Rebels Won – 38/55 (69%) – Of the 55 matches involving Rebels 38 were won. (Includes Mirror Matches) Imperials Won – 48/59 (81%) – Of the 59 matches involving Imperials 48 were won. (Includes Mirror Matches) Rebel vs. Imperial Win Rate i.    Rebels – 15/32 (47%) – Rebels won 15 of the 32 Games played against Imperials ii.    Imperials – 17/32 (53%) – Imperials won 17 of the 32 Games played against Rebels  
    Hope these stats are useful for y'all!

    Just uploaded part 4 of my series on making Hoth Terrain.  It's been fun.   
    The explosions in the thumbnail are just Bandaii effects.   Figured they'd look cool to add!

    Im hoping that we will see some generic commanders like a rebel or stormtrooper captain.  It would be a shame to always have to have a named character leading your force.  Any thoughts?

    I second the notion of Lost Stars! Side note: Leia: Princess of Alderaan just released (also by Claudia Gray) and it's really good too! I don't think I have to state it because most people here know that I love the new canon and they are doing a phenomenal job at keeping a clean, slick lore. There's been no major contradiction aside from one case and they quickly retconed it with another piece of media. The integrity of the Star Wars galaxy is of utmost importance to Pablo and his team.

    Yeah I agree that Disney has done an excellent job with the new Canon. You should try the young adult though! Lost Stars is my favorite novel so far even though it's technically young adult.

    The Bishop reacted to Paperstraw in Scale and Vehicles   
    I've been looking into other scale model kits that could work as Legion stand-ins/terrain and I ended up buying one of the old AMT TIE Fighter kits for use in my planned Imperial Hangar table. During my travels I also found these other kits that may be in scale or a little under or over-sized (but fine for the scale otherwise).
    Other scale kits are:
    1/48 AMT Vulture Droids 1/58 Revell X-Wing 1/51 AMT X-Wing 1/48 Bandai X-Wing 1/48 SMT Y-Wing 1/48 MPC/AMT TIE Interceptor (inaccurate details) 1/51 AMT TIE Fighter 1/48 Bandai Snowspeeder 1/48 SMT Snowspeeder 1/48 SMT R-41 Starchaser 1/48 AMT N-1 Starfighter 1/48 Zarkus Model Kits KSE-12a Dagger Fighter 1/48 SMT Cloakshape Fighter 1/48 SMT B-Wing (huge kit) 1/48 Bandai AT-ST 1/53 SMT AT-AT (another huge kit) 1/48 AMT A-Wing 1/48 SMT A-Wing Some of these kits are very old, or garage kits so might be very difficult to find or expensive. Good luck!

    2 years ago it was a new core set for X-Wing with brand new ships of TFA. So I think it'll be a new product with Last Jedi label for X-Wing to sell right now.

    They've said unpainted figures will be tournament legal in Legion.
    Alex was lead designer on Armada, wasn't he? Armada hasn't had anything in the way of zero or negative cost upgrades, but has had one major errata that changed the text on a handful of problematic upgrades. That's probably largely due to a combination of lessons learned from X-Wing, and the basic game design of Armada; which Legion seems to be somewhat similar to.
