  1. Thanks ^^ These considerations were the key points I wanted to address: how to have a good looking table but still modular. As you mention, the only drawback is the storage... but I'm lucky to have a large house and garage (and a very understanding wife). I'm really hesitating between several thematics for my next table: Naboo or Jeddha. Naboo would be great with the upcoming Clone Wars but it's a lot of rounded buildings... For Jeddha I would love to make the ATAT Rey's House but it's a desertic board like Tatooine. Matt
  2. There are many companies out there selling wargaming scenery compatible with Legion. For example, you can check these resin kits: https://shop.microartstudio.com/fr/decors/1016-swl-desert-scenery-set-1.html https://combatzone-scenery.co.uk/epages/e25b18fb-c32b-422a-8493-a8baeb0f1a17.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/e25b18fb-c32b-422a-8493-a8baeb0f1a17/Categories/"Ground games"/"Imperial Legions" https://www.flamesofwar.com/gf9online_store.aspx?CategoryID=13170 If you have a 3d printer, you can also check these websites: https://corvusgamesterrain.com/collections/galactic-battles https://imperialterrain.com/ https://www.legionterrain.com/ Hope this help 😊 Matt
  3. Thanks 😊 @CaptainRocket and @ZealuxMyr Thanks for your feedback on the height issue. Conversions have always been problematic rulewise with miniatures wargaming. To my mind, this is symptomatic of the difference between 2D cardboard wargaming and 3D miniatures wargaming. It’s not surprising that most highly competitive minis wargaming end up as quasi-2D games (e.g. warmachine, 9th age). On the other hand, minis wargaming are more immersive and creative thanks to the third dimension and that’s why I love them.😊 All the friends I play with know that I’m into narrative-play so line of sight is not an issue. We have an informal gentleman agreement that we call "Medal of Colors" spirit (MoC for short). By playing together we agree that the number one objective is to play “fun and friendly battles on nice battleboards with fully painted armies” (we even organize events based on this spirit). I know this can be difficult to understand for highly competitive players but, for us, this spirit always superseeds any ruleset we may have to use depending the era or universe we play. If the ruleset was the law, Medal of Colors spirit would be the constitution.😉 Most FFG games are highly biaised toward competitive play, yet I think there is room for other styles of play and I think that Star Wars Legion is exceptionally well suited for narrative play (let’s be honest who doesn’t make laser sounds when shooting with stoormtroopers?😅) We are even considering to organize a Star Wars Legion - Medal of Colors event in the upcoming months. Matt
  4. Great table, very imaginative. The green gives a nice contrasting touch to the otherwise grey sceneries. Well done.
  5. Yes they are mounted on metal rods, it enables more dynamic poses. Some people told me that doing so was forbidden by the rules but I didn’t know, I did it only for aesthetic purpose. 😊 Matt
  6. As promised, here are a few close-up shots of the Tatooine table. I really enjoyed painting these minis. As many people pointed out, it's true that the mini quality is not on a par with GW one. But I hope that FFG is aware of this and is actively working to improve the quality. Star Wars Legion has a terrific potential to catch people less interested in the rules and more about painting and collecting minis in Star Wars universe at a uniform scale. I can only hope that the rumor is true that FFG is moving to injection molding polystyrene for the Clone Wars minis. This could really unleash all the hobby side potential of this game! Matt
  7. Awesome! Thanks, this makes me want an ATAT now 😄 Matt
  8. Thanks a lot for all the compliments , I’m really happy that you like it. There are definitely better boards out there, I’ve still a lot to learn from Rob Hawkins, Scenery Planet and Battleboards. They are the masters. If you don’t know them, I could only recommend you to check their gorgeous works, they are eye candies😄. I’m doing this for fun, to relax from work but if it could contribute a little to motivate new players to join this awesome game and community, I would be more than happy 😊. In the past, I have done a demo board for the rule book of the Fallout miniature wargame (see these articles on my blog). I will try to post a few pictures with minis on the Tatooine board tomorrow. Have a great week-end, Matt
  9. Nice! I’m curious, what custom rules are you using? Matt
  10. Yes you are 100% right. I forgot to mention that each module is a 3x3 ft square. So when combined this makes a 6x3 ft table. We tried to play on one module only and it works well for small army list (500ish points) but for bigger games, the two boards are required. Matt.
  11. Yeah those 3 ATAT look epic! I saw that you included a notch in their bases, do you plan to play with them? 😉 Also do you have pictures of the full table or is it WIP? Matt
  12. That’s awesome! Great modelling and weathering on this ATAT. Do you know how it compares to the Revell 1/53 ATAT kit? Scalewise, details, etc Matt
  13. Thanks, I really love this game, it’s so great to play those epic scenes from an universe like star wars. It motivates me to finish painting my SWL minis. Hope to post a few pics in the upcoming days. Matt
  14. Great post! Like you guys, with the upcoming release of the Clone Wars for Star Wars Legion I've been thinking a lot about making a table in this era. Naboo/Theed is iconic and would make a great board. I found a few close-up pics of Naboo buildings movie props on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/21277108@N05/with/3582277612/ It looks like Italian/Venetian architecture with dome roofs. I wonder if we could use resin building kits and "just" change the roofs? Unfortunately I didn't found any commercial set that would fit Naboo's style... Matt
  15. Hello everyone, I'm Matt and I love making terrain for miniature wargaming. I have been working on a Tatooine board for the the last few months and now that it is complete I finally found the time to do a proper photoshoot of the Tatooine board. The two modules are mirror images of each other. This means that each side of one module is compatible with one side of the other module. As a result, these two module can be assembled in 4 configurations as follow: I'm really happy with the result. I've already played twice on it with my friend David and we had a wonderful time. Star wars Legion is a great game with a lot of potential. On my side, I'm already planning my next Star wars Legion board ^^ I'll try to upload a few closeup pictures of the board when I can. Have a nice week-end in a galaxy not so far away, Matt
