    Tokous got a reaction from DwainDibbly in No Time For Sorrows 'timing'   
    I'll explain while answering the question...
    No Time for Sorrows: When a friendly trooper unit is issued an order, it may perform a speed-1 move.
     
    On page 11 of the RR 1.5.0 it explains about Abilities,
    Upgrade cards and command cards also contain abilities. Each ability describes when and how it is resolved. If the timing of an ability uses the word “when,” that ability’s effect occurs at the exact moment of the described timing event.  
    So, you certainly may issue an order using No Time for Sorrows to Leia, she does the speed-1 move. Now being in range 3 of this other friendly trooper unit, can now be issued a order using No Time for Sorrows too.

    Tokous got a reaction from RepentOrPerish in New to Legion, new to war games.   
    Perhaps look at a army builder, wiki, or resource that shows and informs you about the units within those core sets along with the expansions of each faction. Each faction is different in multiple ways than the rest, and play different too. Research goes a long ways ... look before you leap type of thing.  There are plenty of videos with battles for you to visually see the units/factions in action. Podcasts and articles to provide info, etc etc.  
    How many of either core sets? Depends on what kind of army you want to build, play style, strength & weaknesses, and how effective of a army, etc..   Typically x3 provides max amount of units with a bit of room for customization; each will provide a commander (1 min, 2 max), 2 corp troop (Need 3 minimum, 6 max), 1 support unit (0 min, 3 max).   Despite your opinion about the expansions, you might want to consider them as they can for sure make the army better.
    When it comes to assembly, FFG Live just posted a video about the clone wars core. The clone wars core will require way more effort with the addition of tools compared to the original core set that for the most part is extremely easy and quick to assemble. Clone wars core set assembly, Check it out below...
     
    If you would like to shake things up a bit, perhaps buy 1 or more of each core so you have all 4 factions.  Otherwise learn the play style of each faction and find the one that matches how you currently choose to play.  Although, keep in mind that the clone wars is new so it doesn't have the amount of expansions as the rebel & empire factions just yet. However, that will quickly change as they are going to be releasing more clone wars expansions til it is caught up.
    To answer your question about why to wait for clones wars, beyond it being a different faction that plays different it will include a Upgrade Card Pack which yes could be bought separately that includes 60 upgrade cards that were released and included throughout the many expansions of the Rebel & Empire expansions... so you don't have to buy those to get those upgrade cards if you are planning to only play Galactic Republic/Separatist Alliance.   Also, you'll have the errata version of cards.  Beyond that, not really any particular reason I can think of. 
    Yet those aren't strong reasons to abandon choosing to play with Rebel Alliance/Galactic Empire, and choosing the Rebel/Empire just because they currently have more expansions isn't a strong reason either.  Furthermore, who said you need to pick one!  Add some spice playing with more than one faction, leaving your opponent guessing.. opposed to ... oh here comes that [Faction] player again.
    Additionally, if it matters... the price of Rebel Alliance/Galactic Empire core and expansions beyond what is new can be bought for less money, yet the clone wars is brand new so that won't be the case.
    Overall, No matter what you choose i'm sure you'll have a blast, even more so if you make a educated choice based on learning as much as you can about each faction. Hope you the best, and this info was helpful.

    Nice data!  While looking though the lists I noticed on 7/27/2019 that it should be Rebels instead of Imperial. Unless their army is incorrect. Minor error typo no big deal, keep up the outstanding work.

    Tokous reacted to bllaw in Medical Droids: Worth it?   
    And the way i see it each of say Boba Fetts hit points is worth 28 points (140 divided by 5) while the med droid only costs 19 points effectively healing 56 pts for 19 points. good deal for me. For Palpatine that's 84 pts healed for the 19 pts of the med droid! however, the same thing applies to say healing rebel troopers in which you're only saving 20 pts for 18 pts not really worth it. Then the wookies are only 8 pts per wound so healing them twice isn't even worth the cost of the med droid itself. Of course this isn't `100% accurate since the med droid is also a hit point for the unit it's attached to

    Tokous got a reaction from Turan in Fixed Forward and 360º fire arc weapons   
    From my understanding of page 16 of the RR when it comes to Attack Pool:
    When you say 3 inside arc and 2 outside, my answer is based on the 5 are in the same unit.   ...If in same unit then yes you may use both weapons on that unit. Additionally, you only really need to be in range and line of sight to one mini to attack the entire unit, since beyond Force Choke (from what I remember at this time) all attacks are towards a unit not specific minis. However, if a mini(s) in that unit is completely blocked from line of sight it/they cannot receive damage.

    Tokous got a reaction from bllaw in Are models that cannot be placed in cohesion defeated?   
    May need to contact Alex Davy or Luke Eddy for a correct answer.
    My guess which is sourced from pg 20 of RR: (where from what I remember is the only place it mentions what happens if cannot be placed legally and maintain cohesion)
    ... would be maybe you couldn't move in a way that would displace the unit that cannot be legally placed in cohesion. That would make sense since there are ways where you could displace the entire unit including the leader where not a single unit could be placed at all, would be a fluke though. Only other thing I could think of is maybe they would be relocated as close as possible to where they were. Overall I doubt they would be defined defeated and removed from table just because of that, yet I do not know.. Alex and Luke do though.
    Ultimately, claim what happens, so will your opponent... don't agree?... then...

    Tokous got a reaction from EagleScoutof007 in New deployment FAQ? Update: friend misunderstood pod cast.   
    I'd ask him exactly where it says this, perhaps you can educate us all sincerely. Initially what jumped out to me was the whole cohesion thing, but I don't see anywhere that says the entire army needs to be deployed on the same elevation. Personally, I never heard of it and would've challenged his authority as the judge to confirm this beyond say so. As a official judge in other games, I always had print outs, laptop, etc so I could prove I wasn't making up stuff if ever challenged like I didn't know what I was talking about lol.

    I don't believe whether or not the actual model is off the table/board matters much or sticks out, it is the base that matters; so if the base fits then you're alright.

    Tokous got a reaction from Weikel in What paints used for Leia?   
    I think maybe that might be apart of the issue, using paints from a company from an entirely different game. Hopefully I am wrong in your case, yet I use Vallejo and never had any issues. Personally in my opinion and I used to play Warhammer too using Citadel for my necrons, I like Vallejo better. As I said in a few other posts, even the white can be used over black. Personally and maybe unfortunately I haven't found anything better than Vallejo yet, and originally I used Citadel. Maybe or not it is each to their own; regardless when it comes to Star Wars Legion I strongly believe the colors Vallejo have are better than Citadel which is more of a Fantasy Medieval anime feel rather than realistic...for all the haters, the hues don't line up with reality at all in the star wars universe or in ours either though very much match what would be shown in an anime or fantasy coloring.
    You of course may use any companies paint, since I am not getting paid or affiliated in any way to vallejo.. I'm speaking from a source of personal experience and through all my life having unusually good grades & awards in art/drawing. Some other companies are needy, they need you to use lighter shades to use lighter shades yet vallejo doesn't. You can prime a storm trooper black then paint white, and the white is the exact color straight out of the bottle applied.
    Ultimately, regardless what paint you use know its pros and cons and how to use it.

    Tokous got a reaction from bllaw in Specific Minis?   
    They wrote up about this, more or less its mainly what azeronbloodmoone said; reason being is if a rule criminal use's scout troopers in replace of stormtrooper unit, the opponent legit may think they are a scout trooper unit with all keywords and such. However in fact they are stormtroopers, which for common sense reasons gets very confusing, and in a way is a newer form of cheating. If allowed they will actually claim and use the unit as scout troopers, unless at that time you are mindful enough to catch it. 
    When it comes down to it, overall just paint the unit it actually is differently. Whether legit or not, all this nonsense adds to cheating as it becomes considered accepted. Personally, I don't care any excuse anyone would ever claim, I don't agree with it. The unit should be what comes in the package, beyond that starts dipping into allowing cheaters to confuse their opponents with seemingly literally any unit they want to claim as a substitute whatever actually is the unit. When it comes down to it just don't, as it doesn't make any sense and helps cheaters find a way of cheating.
