Played our first game of Star Wars: Legion.
To be honest it was quite confusing, and I think I need to sit down for a long time and read the rules. I thought it might be like X-Wing, it is, but more complex. I really didn’t understand how all the dice worked and I don’t think we had enough dice…
This is the AT-RT which comes in the boxed set. Yes I realised that these models are not painted, they’re not even undercoated, but that day will come, one day….
Darth Vader was in the mix and to be honest he was rather nasty. Why would we expect anything less.
I did have a couple of scenic items that I got. These are the Gale Force Nine Galactic Warzones Defense Turrets. They certainly made the table look the part, though we used them just as scenery. As I said in a previous blog post I am looking to create a Scarif style scenery for my games.
You get two different types of turret in the boxed set and they are very Star Wars in their appearance.
I might get another box in the future to complement the set I already have. I like the fact they are pre-painted as well.
There are other models in the range which I might get later:
- Galactic Warzones – Power Generator
- Galactic Warzones – Bunker
- Galactic Warzones – Desert Buildings
- Galactic Warzones – Desert Tower
- Galactic Warzones – Desert Walls
I am though quite liking the Desert Buildings…
These red based Rebel Troopers are skulking behind the armoured barricades that come with the game.
One thought on “First game of Star Wars: Legion”
Fantasy Flight is terrible for bringing in weird dice and tons of cards and tokens. I suspect it’s a cash grab, but I suppose there is an argument for ‘changing the odds’ and needing to do less consulting of tables. It usually makes understanding the underlying mechanics much more challenging to grasp quickly.
