    T-47 - My first attempt at painting in a LONG time

    that is a crisp looking paint job!

    Pass on Wookies?

    I am not super happy with them thematically but statswise they seem good. I would have much rather had them avoid "racial" units and instead gave us a mixed heavy unit with a wookie, a gigoran, a talz and an ithorian. Or just some rebel honor guards.
  4. UTINI!!!! That is all I have to say to sir.
  5. Forget ewoks. I want jawas.

    Sarissa precision also carries some really nice modular sci fi terrain. It isn't specifically star wars but most of it looks like it would work. https://sarissa-precision.com/collections/system-sci-fi-28mm

    Army Themes and FFG failure

    Snowtroopers on the desert planet of Jedha: Note that the rebels are not wearing cold weather gear here. The "snowtrooper" uniform is used to protect from a variety of hostile weather conditions in this case, massive sandstorms. "Hoth" uniforms on the tropical planet of Scarif: Sgt. Melshi and many others in Rogue One wear pieces of "hoth" gear. You can paint those Hoth jackets blue or brown and they will look just fine.

    It would be super easy to sculpt up some long sleeves and a fur lined collar on a fleet trooper with a little green stuff. That is the thing. People are complaining that this is "not a hobby game" because ffg isn't releasing premade variants of units but that ignores the actual "hobby" practice of converting miniatures!

    The 1000 point question

    Keep it at 800. Otherwise the cheap commanders like leia and veers will never be used as solo commanders.

    Are vehicles that bad in Legion?

    I really think that terrain makes a big difference for vehicles. Giving the t-47 lots of terrain to zoom over and around can help quite a bit.

    Also if you think that a board game can't be a "hobby game" you need to see some of the "pimped" games on boardgamegeek. "Hobby" implies that you put time into it and get enjoyment out of tinkering with it. GW has, over the years, made conversions more and more about the "bitz box" that you are supposed to build up over time by buying more and more of their products. That is not the be all end all of "hobby" as people have pointed out, there is a growing 3rd party 3d printed conversion market. There is also the good old green stuff, plasticard and wire route. I used to play the LOTR SBG back in the day and even the plastics in that range were solid pose for the most part. We did all kind of things with them. I converted an entire box of goblins so that they were climbing on walls, vaulting over rocks, leaping through the air or crawling on the ground. I sold them all off years ago but that was a fun project that used nothing more than a hobby knife, rocks and green stuff. Was it not a "hobby" game just because it didn't come with extra pieces? I spend hours upon hours assembling, painting and basing my legion minis. I haven't even bothered converting any yet just because I like the poses they come in. GW has been making 40k since 1987. Give it time and FFG will continue to produce products and maybe, eventually some official conversion stuff.

    Exactly. We historical gamers manage to create some amazing "themed" forces with variety and character without multi part, multi pose miniatures. Take a look at some of the amazing conversions people have done in the painting section on this forum. Just because FFG doesn't hold your hand it doesn't mean this isn't a hobby game.
  14. Maybe a convoy mission where a vehicle must get grin one side of the board to the other?

    Clone Wars?

    I am hoping they release half core sets if they do release new factions. With a commander, two corps and a support.
