    Shokupanman got a reaction from Thraug in Legion Outriders Podcast Ep4, Legion Eve!   
    Happy Legion Eve everyone!  To ensure maximum hype, we have Episode 4 of the Legion Outriders Podcast ready for your listening pleasure.  This puppy clocks in at a hefty hour and twelve minutes thanks to our interview with Zach Reyburn, OP Manager at Asmodee North America about what you can expect from the Organized Play side of the game.  Plus, the John and Matt get in an 800 point game, talk opening night lists, and Saber Throw...who needs it?
    Episode Four can be found at the link below!  Also, make sure you're paying attention to our Facebook page at Facebook.com/legionoutriders as we'll be attempting our first live-streaming of content on Launch Day!

    Didn't they say though in the AT-ST article that Weiss stacks with the AT-ST, givng you Arsenal 4?

    @Shokupanman yes, I agree, it would be really, really dumb for them to print useless cards and I also agree that it’s their intent for Unit Keywords to stack. 
    What I’m saying is that FFG should update the RRG to say they stack - since quoting articles in organized play isn’t going to fly. As rules are written currently, Arsenal and Precise don’t stack. It’s already come into question as can be seen by OP making this post and most people aren’t going to know to consult news articles as a source for the rules intent.

    ha ha ha...yeah, I'm used to playing "spot the error" from X-wing articles.

    Still, it would seem really, really dumb for them to give you an expansion with the only unit (on launch anyway) with a pilot slot, a pilot in the same expansion, and the only reason for using the pilot doesn't stack with the unit it came in, making it pretty much useless.

    Like, why would I even put Weiss in an AT-ST otherwise?

    I don't do anything "canon standard" and repainted all my X-wing ships using a black/purple/grey/silver/green color pallette.

    i sat down with some IA stormtroopers this weekend to do some VERY rough proof of concept paint schemes for Legion.  I think I'm gonna go with the camo looking one, and screw what everyone else says.

    Honestly, I think Matt's dismissal goes more towards the fact that Star Wars is still largely character-focused, and the chances of seeing non-characters at the head of armies in the game is probably something either Disney, or FFG isn't going to allow.  FFG is in the position of having a large-army game, but still finding ways to put iconic characters in every fight as well.

    Personally, even though I grew up with Star Wars, I've never revered the OT heroes as much as I loved the fringe characters and books that dealt with the "nobodies", like Tales from the Empire, etc.  SW: Galaxies is something I play to this day.  The idea of playing my own personal detachment of Imperial troops, as opposed to "oh hey, a buncha red shirts and Darth Vader...whoooooo" has a lot of appeal.  But I can certainly see the other side of it from Matt's perspective and that makes much more sense from a Marketing perspective.  You have to give people those familar touchstones.

    Of course, once my Vader mini gets a 40K Commisar hat plopped on his head and becomes Commisar-Captain Vader...all bets are off.

    Shokupanman got a reaction from Caimheul1313 in Purchasing advice?   
    Since the game appears to not share the X-wing structure of having to buy every ship because something you don't want has copies of upgrade cards you need, my plan is to split two Core sets with a friend, taking the imperials, and then I'll buy an AT-ST on top of that.  I'll have a full set of tools/dice, Darth Vader, four core set Stormies, two sections of bikes, and an AT-ST.  I wont have grappling hooks nor Impact grenades, but I'll live without to start.

    I think that's a fairly flexible roster for day one launch armies.

    I took the Manaroo/Asajj portion of Parratini, beefed them up a little, and then tossed Unkar Plutt in there to, potentially, bury someone in tractor tokens.

    Unkar Plutt
    Outlaw Tech, Pattern Analyzer, Tractor Array (so I'll get a focus and can still beam after a red)
    Manaroo
    Mindlink, Ketsu, Unhinged
    Asajj Ventress
    Mindlink, Latts, Shadow Caster, Gyro Targeting
     
     
    That's 98 points...Dunno if it will be as good as I see it in my head, but I'm looking forward to trying it!

    Yep...I ran a Bossk/Marksmanship/K4/Boba, Kavil/TLT/Swarm, Thug/TLT list at Stele and made the cut...
     
    Fly the Ys together, swarm the Thug up to a 7, use the TLTs to strip tokens and deal damage, and then follow up with a TL'd Marksmanship Bossk shot.  Hits like a freaking truck.  I've handled Palp Aces with a good degree of success and also Uboats in it.

    And as for the first Scum Huge base ship, I think the choice is pretty clear.  Any answer that is not "Marauder Corvette" is wrong.
