Imperial Discipline: Creating a 500-Point Format for Legion

Kevin Valliere writes:

Let’s cut to the chase.

Sometimes, Legion can feel like it goes on forever. Two and a half hours passes by quickly in the heat of a competitive moment, but decidedly less so if the game is lopsided or you’ve been forced into a bye. And with somewhere in the neighborhood 40 of your minis on the table at once, that’s a massive time commitment for newbies to invest just in assembly and organization, let alone actually painting the damn things or getting them on the table for a full match.

So if you’re trying to rope in new players or give veterans something different, how do you manage it?

I’m happy to present a project I’ve been working on for some time now: a standardized 500-pt Legion format for leagues and tournaments. The fast facts:

  • 500 Points
  • 3′ x 3′ map (a la X-Wing)
  • 75-minute round timer
  • 5-turn maximum
