Star Wars™: Legion

Hello everyone !!

This is it, we are going to play 40k into the SW franchise.


Shouts and screams echo around you—the din of pitched battle. The air smells acrid from blaster fire as lasers hiss past your squad. A scout trooper roars past on a 74-Z speeder bike, weaving between trees and firing at someone you can’t quite see through the underbrush. You raise your blaster and fire in the same direction, hoping to avoid any shrapnel. Ahead, you see Darth Vader, towering over a group of fallen Rebels strewn across the forest floor. He flicks his lightsaber forward, and your platoon charges…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Star Wars™: Legion, a new miniatures game of infantry battles that invites you to join iconic heroes and villains, lead your troopers into battle, and battle for the fate of the Star Wars galaxy. With Star Wars: Legion, you can build and paint a unique army of miniatures. You can command your troops in battle and devise masterful tactics. And you can conquer your opponent’s army to bring victory to the light side or the dark side!

With thirty-three unpainted and easily assembled miniatures, and all the cards, movement tools, tokens, and terrain that you need for battle, the Star Wars: Legion Core Set is the perfect way to bring Star Wars battles to your tabletop.

Brief system description :

Action


each unit can take two actions to march across the battlefield, launch a devastating attack, take careful aim, dodge away from enemy fire, take a moment to recover, or hold their action until the optimal moment.

Movement


Movement in Star Wars: Legion is fast and organic as you maneuver your troops around the battlefield using jointed movement tools. Unlike many miniatures games, you don’t need to measure movement for every miniature in a unit! Once you’ve measured movement for your unit leader, you simply pick up the other soldiers in the unit and place them in cohesion with the unit leader.

Combat


Roll special FFG dice depending on the weapon (like descent)

Thunderhawk kit pics

Tags : legion forge world game workshop thunderhawk

Hello everyone !!!

BingBong sended images of his new Thunderhawk ,plus info about the quality and the ability to pin it to a flying stand !
Thank you very much for sending these, it's much appreciated !!!!


The kit is really well cast and crisp - haven't seen a single void or air bubble - really nowhere! All of the large pieces are cast with thick section walls and overlapping joins for a really solid model. When Tony Cottrell joked that 'this one should be easier to put together' he really wasn't joking, this is really good work by FW. Nothing is warped to the naked eye so far, but I haven't done any work on it yet, so that remains to be seen, but so far I get the feeling everything is pretty damn good!

I spent a while talking to Daren Parrwood on Sunday (@ the fest) about his pattern making work on the kit. He pointed out that he gave some consideration to the centre of gravity of the kit and mounting it 'flying'.

It's worth noting that he calculated this and made this area of the underside fuselage particularly thick and incorporates overlapping pieces to give a really solid area when drilling through the underside of the model for those that want to make a flying base.

In the last I have placed a 5 pence piece on the Manuel page over the 'sweet spot' for drilling as outlined by Daren for anyone interested.
