Legion. 

You are kidding....

I look forward to seeing their AT-AT at Legion scale alongside Legion scale X-Wings and TIE Fighters.  They will fit so well on the Legion scale tabletop moving at Legion scale speed.

Legion does not even come close to replicating Star Wars land battles with air support... it was never intended to do this anyway.  A bit like how Epic is not really the best representation of huge scale ships.... that is why there is Armada. 

I am not concerned if people like my rules or not, I have had a lot of fun playtesting new missions and working on a Clone Wars expansion for my own amusement.

I have not used that many walkers and speeders in a game even though I do have that many models to actually try this!:lol: 

There are rules for snowspeeders and tow cable attacks on the site for people to experiment with:  http://xwingassault.com/forum/index.php?p=/discussion/66/snowspeeder-rules-wip#latest

This makes the tow cable attack quite a challenge to pull off and with a fair chance it will not do much damage, but it still is capable of destroying an AT-AT in a single go.  So a ratio of 2 to 3 speeders per walker is about the right balance.

So feel free to try out the rules yourself and if you have any questions I am always happy to answer them.

PS: This has nothing to do with the "Hoth Open" so I apologize if you searched for that term and found this...

Is the Infantry included in the sets? Can you tell me wich Mico Machine sets these are?

Ahh, I was looking for this!

 

Hey, can I ask, where did you get that Leia and Luke and all of those other characters?  They aren't in the Battle of Hoth Ertl kit...?

Here is a start on a new modelling project using plastic kits of the "Battle of Hoth" from AMT/ERTL.  These appear to be at a compatible scale with X wing.  I bought multiple kits to get enough of everything.  First up are two groups of T-47 Snowspeeders:

Drilling a hole in these small craft allows them to easily fit on the standard flight base.

 

WInter is coming... Blizzard Force!

 

The AT-STs from the kit are not very accurate or to scale so I went with the Micro Machine version that does look much better.

The kit's AT-ATs are pretty good despite the static pose and the lack of feet flanges.

Movement rules for ground units is still a WIP, but possibly the AT-ATs could use a similar concept to the Huge ships with a customized turning template.

 

 

 

The is the scale Legion should have been, then you really can field a legion.
