    What’s left for this year

    As long as we're wildly speculating, we could see a pack of Corps Upgrades with medics, droids, engineers, etc.

    I made a terrain!

    Not bad! Put the files up! The only other laser cut terrain plan I've come across is this dropbox of some terrain designed by Deep-Green-X. It's intended for 3mm material, so you may not be able to use it, but I've made one of the buildings and the scale is perfect for Legion.

    New RRG!

    Guess we know how mines work now.

    Yet Another Polda Paints an FFG Game Thread

    There are some more poster designs in this old thread:

    Terrain changes everything

    Yep, and it doubles as an easy reference for terrain rules.

    Release Schedule????

    I think that's right. We've already seen that the latest announcement included both a Rebel and Imperial emplacement trooper. I'm betting the releases will eventually slow down and settle into paired waves, but we just don't know yet.

    50% cover rule

    Care to elaborate?

    Base sizes 1.4 Laser Cannon/E-Web

    Trooper sizes in the articles back up what Matt Antilles said.

    Are you playing with enough terrain?

    Yes. Maybe the answer to my quandary is to just go all the way and make my smaller pieces into area terrain.

    Are you playing with enough terrain?

    I'm proposing that the way you check coverage should reflect the way you actually use your terrain. If you play with a 3-barricade emplacement, such as in the diagram, it's functionally the same as a single piece of terrain and should be measured as such, not tightly packed together.

    Are you playing with enough terrain?

    Counter question: Are you playing with too much terrain? As I start planning terrain for my home board, I noticed something curious happens when you have lots of small pieces of terrain: It's easy to see how much space your barricades or trees actually cover if they are attached to a scenic base. But you should still account for the negative space between small obstacles that aren't on a base. Your terrain might cover vastly more area than you expect if you cram your obstacles into a tiny space during the coverage check, but spread them out during the game.

    Terrain changes everything

    Runewars uses a similar system, except since it's an FFG game it uses cards instead of a chart. Every card has a picture of the terrain piece and lists its effects: LOS blocking, difficult terrain, etc. That might be a nice system to apply in Legion. I like your tweak about putting something in the center, too.

    Sorastro's Painting

    Just finished with my T-47, and thanks to your sage guidance I couldn't be happier with how it turned out! I love your channel, Soroastro - you're truly the Bob Ross of miniatures.

    Darth Vader's Security Forces (Snowtrooper paint job)

    I love the concept! I'd give them a wash or some drybrushing to bump up the contrast. As much as I love a classic white stormtrooper, I'm tempted to try something like this now.. As for images, after you upload to imgur, then paste a link with the .jpg extension at the end. Right click the image and click "Copy image address" to get it.

    This is the part that rings most true to me. The airspeeder seems designed as an armor hunter, so it won't really shine in a trooper-dominated meta.
