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.
Something I have been thinking about getting for a while now was the Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars Legion boxed core set. So I was well pleased to get it for Christmas.
There are thirty-three easily assembled figures in the boxed set including Darth Vader.
Once a heroic Jedi Knight, Darth Vader was seduced by the dark side of the Force, became a Sith Lord, and led the Empire’s eradication of the Jedi Order. He remained in service of the Emperor for decades, enforcing his Master’s will and seeking to crush the fledgling Rebel Alliance. But there was still good in him…
Darth Vader has three components, his body, arm and light sabre and his head with a cape.
The model goes together very easily.
Due the nature of the plastic used for the model the light sabre is a little bendy and doesn’t sit straight. I am wondering if I should replace it with some plastic (or even metal) rod.
I used superglue to stick the model together and to it’s base.
“It’s the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I’ve outrun Imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I’m talking about the big Corellian ships now.”
I am pleased to read around the web, avoiding spoilers mind you, that they have taken a more “traditional” approach to filming, harkening back to the original trilogy of films and where possible avoiding CGI. Though I suspect this shot does use a little bit of CGI…
