    I'm cut and pasting one of my previous responses to this issue from an earlier thread, as I honestly cannot believe the saltiness that's on display over the scale of these miniatures:
    At the end of the day, Legion and IA are separate games. Nowhere has FFG said that they are to be compatible or that they were designed to complement each other. 
    Legion is a totally new game. I can't understand why you'd expect to use existing miniatures from a completely separate game with a different genre and focus, and then complain when you can't?
    Did X-wing players complain when they realised they couldn't use their existing ships in Armada?

    And if they did that just to be sleazy then yes, you have a reason to be upset. Now show me where all these people have the proof that this is the reason they did it. Show me the conversations they had with Alex where he said that.
    And yes, GW has multiple times made models unusable in a new edition of the same game. this isn't the same game. It's an entirely new game.

    Seriously, FFG? You're hiring a demo person that's in a larger scale than the players?

    How convenient you forget that each one carries an assortment of fighter/bombers to level a city (not to mention the Destroyers weapons which blow up the asteroid field and have shields that can sustain several impacts from said space rocks).
    So an armada of 3 Star Destroyers (with said complementary fighters/bombers) is pursuing a modified YT-1300...
    A Star Destroyer in Star Wars isnt an aircraft carrier of the 20th century on earth.
    In addition look in a dictionary what the word "Armada" means.

    Yeah. The might of the Empire is supposed to be such that any battle bigger than small operations (like Endor) would be already a loss for the rebellion (see Rogue One).
    The Rebel Alliance is supposed to have better chances in space because the Empire fleet is spreaded among the galaxy which in turn would give a better chance for the rebellion and is based on surprise attacks (Death Star II space battle).
    Well... at least thats the idea that George Lucas and the writers of the EU wanted to give.
    For full scale armies gutting each other out the Clone Wars are much better (until Order 66).

    Kentares reacted to TallTonyB in Is there also a reaction or overwatch mechanic   
    If you only use one of your actions and don't attack, your other action can be overwatch (I think the correct term is standby, but I haven't looked at a rule book in a few weeks). After an enemy unit performs their first action, you can perform an attack or move action.

    You can play with unpainted minis.

    Kentares reacted to TallTonyB in FFG: PLEASE PRE-PAINT   
    Xwing and Armada are terrible examples of prepainted minis. The angular ships with only a couple colors are not that expensive to paint, humanoid figures with a paint job even a little bit not garbage are vastly more expensive. It's great that you would pay more for prepainted. Guess what? You can already do that. It's called commission painters. Why should I have to pay more for my game just to strip minis and repaint? And putting out versions with both painted and non painted? Really? That's a huge pain in the butt for the company, and for stores that have to carry multiple SKUs and find more shelf space. How do you decide how much of each to order? /rantoff
    Sorry if that sounds cranky, it's been a long couple of days at the Con

    I think folks need to remember that FFG are going for a totally different corner of the market here. 
    I'm a wargamer at heart, having grown up with GW games like Warhammer 40K, Necromunda and Mordheim. When I got into these games in my youth, I picked up the WEG Star Wars Miniature Battles rulebooks for the sole purpose of playing a game like 40K in a Star Wars setting. 
    IA will continue, as that appeals, again, to a different gamer, with it's board game esque focus. And that's OK. 
    For me, nothing beats the feeling of seeing a fully painted army of miniatures on display or in a display cabinet. Star Wars Legion looks like it will be replacing 40K as my miniature game hobby of choice. 
    I, for one, am super excited by this prospect!

    If you're just playing casually at your local game shop or dining room table, do whatever you want.

    If you're going to play in official sanctioned FFG tournaments, follow their rules.

    Having (or not) AT-AT's in this game is secondary to a majority of people in deciding if theyre going to buy it (or not).
    First its a ruleswise and willingness to play in a squad scale free mode (i.e. not using the skirmish mode of IA).
    Second is a budget concern (maybe its a primary concern for some). Players already play some form of FFG Star Wars related game (X-Wing, Armada, IA) and they dont have the money to invest in a second or a third game (or fourth).
    Third is a wait and see in how and by how much FFG are going to sell the expansions. We already know theres vehicles planned so I would bet that an AT-AT isnt a far fetched option (like the Epic scale in X-Wing an AT-AT doesnt need to be in the proper scale to make it work in Legion - could be in some special scenarios and shouldnt be allowed in tournaments for example).
    Fourth... Its a business for FFG. Im sure they wont waste the oportunity to cash in a few more dollars by not releasing a vehicle thats a wet dream for most Star Wars fans. Ohhh... and we already know that the First Order will field their version of AT-AT's in The Last Jedi...
    Of course there always some guys which will decide based on that but it will be a minority.

    Just want to point out that Scarif was (fairly) balanced because of the surprise and audacity of the rebels. As soon as Empire troops got their stuff together the balance was thrown out the window (that and a couple of AT-ACT's helped - and of course the Death Star).
    Thinking better about this it would be an interesting and balanced Legion scenario to play if air support was excluded... maybe...

    My wife and I both dreamt about this everytime we've sat down to play tabletop games the past four years. 
    While playing Dust, "I'd be cool if this was Star Wars" -My wife and I
    While trying out Warmachine "They really outta have a Star Wars game like this" -Me
    While playing Imperial Assault "Skirmish is cool, could we play it like Dust?" -My wife..
    Bolt Action version 2, "I'd play if it was Star Wars" -My Wife.
    Konflikt 47,"This is like a cheaper version of Dust, they should make a Star Wars one" My wife.
    Runewars Miniature Game " Do we need another Wargame" -My Wife.
    Needless to say she's already scheming how to stomp my Rebel Legions..

    They'll make a bunch of smaller ground vehicles, such that the primacy of AT-ATs will be forgotten. And then once they've done that they'll release a $100 AT-AT.
