    Clones AT-RT

    The AT-OT should be pretty stable as it is a little less than 6 meters tall it is a bit shorter than the AT-ST while having a larger base. I do think that it would require a new movement template as you are correct that the thing would be wicked fast with front to back movement, though they could make it a hollow base and have it front to the front of the empty space in the middle and keep the same template.

    I think he was talking about for the AT-OT which is only 14m.

    yeah, I agree, but much longer or wider and you would. I think 12 inches is about as big of a base as you could do on a unit without running into problems.

    The issue with the AT-AT is you cant get even remotely close to its on screen performance without making it undamageable by 90% of the units out there. Either you get a neutered AT-AT or you get an Un fun AT-AT, but that is a discussion for a different post.

    the major difference between Legion and X-Wing/Armada is 3D terrain. You can get to the point where the base gets too big to move around terrain and that becomes unfun. I think the AT-OT would be the most likely on a pill shaped base. The AV-7 could work as an emplacement vehicle though and wouldn't have to worry about moving, which was the main problem i saw with it. For the AT-AT they could go for a multi base system with either 1 base for the front feet and 1 for the back, or for each foot.

    I personally don't want to see the AT-AT in the game. It doesn't fit in a 6 turn 800 point game. There gets to be a point where a unit can get too big. The AV-7 might fit into that category, as the base would be 1.5 times the height of the AT-ST, and it would most likely have to be circular, unlike the AT-OT.

    AV-7 and AT-OT might be too big though, they are about 50% longer than the AT-ST is tall so without a new base size. In that case the ISC would fill the heavy slot while swoops/speederbikes/ATRT would fill the support roles

    i think if the do an AV-7 it would be a Heavy, along with the AT-OT. I actually think that the ISC would be a heavy as well given the Airspeeder is a heavy and they are both similar size.

    I would like to see either 3 or 4, but I agree with you that it will probably be 1

    the Clones will get their own if only to change the pilot.

    Not too excited about Chewie

    Oh I definitely don't think they are inappropriate for the game at all. They definitely have a place, I just don't think it belongs with the Alliance, that's all. They 100% belong in the Clone Wars, and they also belong in the GCW, I would have just put them in a scum faction rather than Rebels.

    It comes from a line in Rebels combined with Aftermath Life Debt. After the Ghost crew rescue the Wookie Slaves from Kessel one of the Wookies says that if you ever need help they would be there for the rebels. The Wookies then disappear from the series. In Life Debt, Chewie gets captured and is being held on Kashyyyk. Han plans to go rescue him with the characters from the aftermath series. Leia approaches Mon Mothma, who is now the leader of the New Republic, and asks for help. Mon refuses to help and forbids Leia from going because it might upset the peace talks. Ackbar, Wedge, and Leia go anyway and make a comment about a mutiny to show up. As I said in my first post, how I interpreted these events is: In Episode III the Wookies were fighting the Separatist on Kashyyyk with Yoda and the clones. Order 66 comes down and the Clones attempt and fail to kill Yoda. This next part is speculation on my part: The Droids get shut down and the clones turn on the Wookies and enslave them. Some Wookies escape/hide. These Wookies fight a guerrilla campaign on Kashyyyk to help free their planet. They occasionally go off planet to gain help from anyone willing to offer. When a group of Wookies is rescued by the crew of the Ghost, they offer to help the rebels in an attempt to bring in allies to help free Kashyyyk. When the Rebels don't ask for help they continue to attempt to free Kashyyyk. Fast forward to Aftermath, The New Republic, made up of Rebel Alliance leadership is indifferent to the planet Kashyyyk. I guess that the Wookies could have joined up after Leia and Ackbar liberate Kashyyyk.

    True, but Rebellion isn't canon anymore. Both sources I listed are canon. I understand that being canon might not be important to some people, but I also imagine that it is to some. I understand that some liberties need to be taken because it's a game, and it would not be fun if on every endor table rebels always won and on every hoth table rebels always lost, but, at least for me, I like it to fit with the general background of the Star Wars universe. The way I interpret the lore is that the Rebel Alliance, and later the New Republic didn't really care about the Wookies all that much, and so having squads of them running around fighting with the Rebellion just didn't happen. Don't get me wrong, I think they defiantly belong in the game, my issue is entirely with them being lumped in with the Alliance. I also have the same issue with the Emperor by the way so its not just about the Wookies.

    The main reason I don't like them is because while the were fighting, and the were fighting the Empire, they weren't fighting with the Rebel Alliance. So while I think they belong in the game I don't think they belong on the side of the Rebels. I mean in Aftermath: Life Debt the New Republic seems to think that Kashyyyk isn't a high priority. In Rebels after the Ghosts crew rescues the Wookies the Wookies offer to assist the Rebels if they need it, and the rebels never seem to team up with the Wookies after that. Both of these points lead me to believe that the Rebellion never actually seeks help from the Wookies, the one exception being Chewbacca and mainly because he was partners with Han.
