  1. My wife got it from Zatu games apparently. Ordered just before...and arrived on May 4th.
  2. Thanks for the info. Ill take a look. Want to get some of those Silver Battledroids if I can.
  3. Hi All. Back into Legion now (and loving it) and I know 'Tirion' has a similar themed thread atm but I thought id ask in a new thread too. I am based in the UK and somehow my wife got me the CW core set for May 4th(yay). Now I am back on board....can I ask is there any info at all regards UK availability of Boxes such as the B2?(upgraded silver Battledroids) and Padame/Cad Bane for example? I realise that C19 is a thing...if the answer is 'nobody knows' then I understand 100%. Being away from the game so long I am out of the loop and dont know if(where) its already been discussed and clarified. Bad time to get back into things I guess with the Pandemic and stores out of stock all over. Thanks
  4. Having just come back to Legion...can I ask when do we think we will see Bane/Padame in the UK(I know C19 is wrecked everything...just wondered if there was rough date?)
  5. Always felt my rebels from the original box felt like random soldiers (nothing wrong with that...I guess a lot of rebels were just that) and yours....look like proper rebels.
  6. Hi all. I used to post tons of painted figures/terrain back from before and through launch. Not been able to be involved for a long time but back at Legion now as I noted in a post other week. received my CW box and cracking on with painting. Always liked posting pics of stuff ive painted and seeing others stuff for inspiration. Some of my older stuff
  7. Just back into Legion after an enforced holiday...back playing skirmish (not buying anything as I cant find any stock) Got a large IMP/REB armies so plenty to choose from for now. General question with my long holiday, how is SWL doing overall? I know it wont be approaching 40k figures...but is the game considered a success and growing for example? My Legion minis have been in a display case and only got them out again recently....forgot how nice the figures are.
  8. IMO in a 3 way fight at home...shooting into a melee between the other 2 players should be perfectly ok. Something like pick a target...roll a red attack dice, if you get a hit/crit...the shots hit the intended target...a miss means the other person. (then roll attack dice normally along with all other rules) Even reduce the range of weapons by 1 for shooting into melee to balance things a little? For an at home game it dosnt feel right to not be able to shoot at two enemies fighting each other with sticks.
  9. Thank you (again). Seems harsh the ST leader has to move from the objective on the last turn missing out on the win 😙
  10. Hi all, I was very active on here at launch with games and painting but have had to have a long break for 'life'. Back into Legion now and just played v the wife...played Skrimish which suits us well in terms of time and her level of focus ;] A couple of questions from tonight's game that we just played as we saw fit to keep things moving...to check after: 1- Luke is engaged with Boba. He plays Son of Skywalker. He attacks Boba, then uses his Son of Skywalker Atack killing Boba. Question- Does he now have a free 'move'...we moved him and it took him into base contact with a ST unit...can he now attack the ST unit too(3 attacks in that turn). Note, he moved into contact with the situation below in no2. 2- Luke Moves towards 2 ST's holding an objective on last turn. He reaches the trooper model. Does the Leader who is just a few cm from Lukes base have to move to be engaged with him(moving him out of base contact with the objective)? We played Luke did get 3 attacks..but the ST leader could stay in contact with the objective(winning the game for Imps).
  11. Fair enough. Will be playing vs the wife while we are locked in....so didnt want to ruin the game by smashing herwith an overpowered card I shouldnt be using hehe.
  12. Hi all. Returning player here with a query re Skirmish. I was very active on here early on for Legion (posted lots of pics of painted stuff and terrain) but just been too busy. Now, I find myself with more time on my hands like many around the world..... So I see Skirmish is a thing. Except for new cards and a smaller Table/Army...are other things the same? One thing niggling my mind is the Princess Leia ability (forget its name...co ordinated bombardment?) on one of her cards. It was a large attack. Does this not be very make things unbalanced with the smaller armies? Does the command card system work the same in Skirmish, standing orders then 2 of each pip? Seems over the top for the smaller games? I didnt see anything about it in a quick rules check? Thanks all.
  13. I am a SW fan since a kid back in the 70s'. I thought TLJ was very very poor. I am not a raving anti disney/SW fan who demands things exactly as I want them....I love R1 for example, I enjoyed solo. TFA was 'ok' but too much of a copy of ANH...same story. Compare the dialogue of all the Imperial officers in the original trilogy. Its similar in R1. Its sinister, they mean business. We have good guys fighting against these very serious villains. Now look at TLJ/first order. Its a joke. Its nothing like what SW was about. Kids LOVED A New Hope....dosnt mean they need pathetic baddies....they loved bad, bad guys. TLJ opens with a jokey phone call between the leader in the field of the FO and a pilot...it sets the tone for the film. It is NOT serious in the way star wars was and was so successful with. Could you honestly imagine a radio call between Red Leader and Tarkin going like that? Imagine tarkin falling for jokey jokes....it just is not the star wars that was created for us.
  14. I honestly think they need to restart a lot of the trilogy in the third film after TLJ. I will go see it and hope they can regain some dignity for SW and focus on what made SW great in the first place. TLJ was a mess of a film...no real continuity or anything to 'finish off' in the third film...has to write its own little story in the 3rd film first and then finish it due to bad writing in the 2nd film.
  15. Hi all. For various reasons I had a 6 month break from Legion...Bossk arrived this morning though and apart from the base which still needs doing, here he is.
  16. and tabletop admiral lets you select 500 point format for army building- https://tabletopadmiral.com/legion/
  17. Heres a 500 point format for the game from the net. https://imperialdiscipline.blog/2019/06/04/creating-a-500-point-format-for-legion/
  18. Id also love a 500pt format, its our go to for a quick game when we just dont have time(quite often). Good work on keeping TTA going. Donated back when Legion first started and after a bit of an enforced break im back on the scene and its great to see your builder still well made and updated.
  19. No problem...edit to say Paos trousers were Rhinox hide...not Thinox hide
  20. OK, its long time ago and a lot painted since. Most of the Pathfinders were sprayed gray..then a white spray from above. All the main painting was done with water thinned paints..which allows he highlights of the base coat to show through(if the paint is thinned enough). The blue armour/jackets are GW Steggadon Scale Green(its more of a blue) The trousers for Pao I think were thinned Thinox Hide, the rest of the rebels clothes were a mixtureof Zandri Dust and Steel Legion drab.....all washed with a coat of either Agrax earth shade or drakehoff for the blue. No highlighting. Paos boots were just Mournfang brown. IMO if the paint is thinned enough, after base coat it looks a little ropey..but with the wash, it settles into the groves while letting the raised areas look like highlights due to the white base coat and very thinned paints. Its a bit of trial and error getting the right thinning balance. Hope it helps. Edit to say I think Paos face was DEath Guard green...again using same method of thinned paints to let highlights of undercoat show through...and I think with a wash of athonian camoshade
  21. No worries, after work later ill take a look and see what I can work out....it was a while since I painted em 😵
  22. Sorry only just noticed this. Dont know if im too late but I can check when im home later tonight if it helps(hope i can remember them when I check them)
  23. Ok, I dont know if this is against the rules(never done anything like this before) so if it is...apologies (I have posted on many FFG game forums and never done it before).....but realising that I will never have time to play (with IA, Legion, Decent and all the other FFG games I play) I have decided to stick this box and the figures on EBAY. If anyone is interested, take a look on there. If its against the rules, please delete this and accept my apologies...as noted, its not something ive ever done before in years of FFG gaming.
  24. Everything finished. As noted, not really happy with the Troll but ill see what its like with some varnish on. cheers all.
