FFG: Fire Support (Two Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion Are Now Available)

Never Tell Me the Odds Blog: Rebel Commandos – Snipers

Snipers and saboteurs will be in separate articles, since they play so differently.

The format of this article will be a little different, since the full squad and strike team play differently but share the same weapon upgrade.  First we’ll hit some high level pros and cons common to both versions of Commando snipers, then we’ll look at the sniper rifle stats and some data-informed decisions.  Lastly, we’ll look at the differences between the full squad and strike team, and some tactics for each.

Pros

  • Can get in cover more easily
  • Sharpshooter allows more hits through cover
  • Courage 2 means usually getting both actions
  • Pierce is the shizzle
  • Unlimited range Pierce is the fo-shizzle (that’s more than shizzle, right?  Or is that my nizzle?)

New Ancient Ruins Store House from Imperial Terrain

Imperial Terrain’s newest model is this beautiful Ancient Ruins Store House which also comes with some bonus crates. This piece would work great on a Yavin V table.

Ancient Ruins Store House and Crates

Here’s their write up:

An expansion set for our Ancient Ruins line of wargaming terrain, the Store House was once a prominent structure for an ancient civilization. Time has definitely taken its toll, eroding over half the building but leaving strong stone ruins behind. The Store House could be used merely as ancient ruins that a battle is happening in or hobbied up to be a temporary control center.

A set of 7 unique crates and containers come as part of the set as well.

Store House Measurements: 13″ long x 9″ wide x 7.5″ Tall

Physical Model: $65.99 +shipping

STL File: $5.00

The Ancient Ruins Store House is also included in their “Ancient Ruins” STL bundle
