Hi, just starting on my Legion journey, and plan to run Imperials. Not yet had a game, so still a Legion virgin.

Being of a certain age (I saw Episode 4 when it originally came out in UK, aged about 8?) I want to run them as per the original trilogy.

is this a viable option?

I have the original box set, an e-web and one box of Imperial Guard. 

Sticking the original trilogy theme, what else would be worth while getting?

Edit: Meant to ask, is there a good army builder or two out there? I have an IPad and an Android phone, if it matters.

Thanks in advance.

If by running based on the OT you mean only using units that appeared in the films then you should be largely fine, you will be missing out on a few nice units like Shoretroopers and Krennic that bring new things to the table but it's definitely viable and you won't really be seriously hampering yourself.

As for list builders, The Tabletop Admiral website is a great option which is easy to use and let's you see the cards which is handy. I also use Battlescribe on my phone which is also great but can be a bit fiddly to set up.

@Atromix I could stretch to Rogue One territory! Just not Episodes 1-3 or 7-9.

Thanks for the builder pointer too.

Looking back I did see someone had built one for iPad, which I have now down loaded. Just need to play around with it now.

Well, the Empire doesn't exist in those eras (minus the last 5 minutes of RotS) so you should be good to go for everything in the faction. What Imperial units did you think there might be from those movies?

If you include Rogue One, the only units not available would be Iden Versio and the upcoming inferno squad/imperial special forces

Yes, you are absolutely right. It’s more about the faction rather than the troops for me. And is an Imperial list viable? Hoping so given what @Atromix said.

Yes, they are just as good as other factions and probably the easiest to play. Their units are relatively straightforward and probably better for beginners.

Thanks. Straightforward is good!
