  1. The Story Group is being weirdly cagey about it all, but Sabine did draw this little guy: And this fellow has shown up in a few episodes of Resistance: Neither has yet been confirmed as a Bothan, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Wild Guess: dewback rider and [insert here] are next

    Yeah, Fleet Troopers vs. Naval Troopers and Snowtroopers vs. ‘Rebel Veterans’ seems much more logical, but nobody asked me…

    Wild Guess: dewback rider and [insert here] are next

    Personally, I’d love to see Naval troopers, but I dunno how well they’d fit the bill as ‘veterans’ if FFG is set on continuing their parallel release strategy for the two factions. Dewbacks I think are very likely, and I can’t wait to get my hands on some—I’m sure the sculpts will be beautiful. I would like to see SCAR Squadron and Inferno Squad at some point as well, but neither would make sense as core choices. They are both the very definition of special forces.

    Tauntaun Riders! And Rebel Veterans!

    I’ll confess, I haven’t read all these responses… but I just wanted to pop in real quick and do a dance of joy. 🕺

    ATST and Airspeeder still extremely overcosted

    I just want to know why so many otherwise evidently fluent English speakers in this forum keep using ‘overcosted.’ That’s not a word. The term they’re looking for is ‘overpriced.’

    What other special forces do you think we will get

    I’d really like to see both Inferno Squad and SCAR Squadron as unique special forces units for the Empire.

    Ok, Commanders and Operatives are good now...

    It sure is! I’m trying to figure out a way to delete the two duplicates, and coming up blank. Any help? 🧐

    Ok, Commanders and Operatives are good now...

    This is precisely what I’ve always wanted out of a Star Wars miniatures game. WEG D6 came a bit closer than Legion, but honestly, any time I find myself thinking about how fun it would be to play a miniatures game set in x fictional universe, all I ever actually want is a game that can scale up and down just as you’ve described. Some of my fondest memories of playing the LotR game, way back when the Fellowship edition first came out eighteen years ago, are of tense little skirmishes with a small handful of models on each side—Aragorn and the four hobbits facing the Ringwraiths at Weathertop, for instance, or the Fellowship fighting its way out of Balin’s tomb. And then you could turn right around and play the Battle of Pelenor Fields using the same set of rules! I want that level of flexibility in a Star Wars game. I want to be able to play the Spectres rescuing Kanan from his prison cell on Mustafar, and then turn around and recreate the Battle of Hoth right out of the same rulebook.

    Royal guard fitting

    I still haven’t assembled mine, but I’m facing the same problem! I love the poses, but the fits are really quite bad.

    Echo Base Troopers

    Even if FFG (foolishly) were to release non-corps Echo Base troopers, I’d still buy a few boxes are simply proxy them in as standard Rebel troopers. Also, I totally want to convert Noa and Teek operative models now. 😂

    OT: What's Left?

    That… isn’t how this hobby works. 🤔 I’ve been collecting and playing GW’s The Lord of the Rings miniatures game on and off for seventeen years now, and… I still play. It’s still one of my favourite games. I’ve been playing X-Wing and Armada for several years now as well, and I don’t plan to stop any time soon—quite the contrary; I’m just looking forward to my son getting old enough that I can teach him to play as well! Tabletop wargames aren’t like video games that people drop $60 on, blow through in a few weekends, and then go trade in at GameStop for something newer and shinier (personally, I find even that practice incomprehensible, but that’s just me). If I’m going to invest dozens or hundreds of hours assembling and painting an army of tiny plastic men to a reasonably high standard, the possibility of selling or otherwise discarding them them and moving on to the next big thing doesn’t even cross my mind. I’ll likely still have my Legion miniatures twenty years from now, unless I’ve passed them on to my kids (if they want them).

    OT: What's Left?

    Ewoks. That’s literally the only thing I care about at this point. Everything else is just gravy.
