Maximum Annihilation: Krennic vs Veers

Krennic_vs_Veers_tkdjiq.png

It’s Thursday night Legion night at my FLGS Games Cube. Fresh from lots of spacemen pew pew at ANZAC Cup, I lined up another game with my mate Damo.

I’ve just finished painting my Imperial Royal Guard, and was pretty keen to give them a spin. I dropped a few things (Snowtroopers, Comms Tech) from my ANZAC Cup list in order to fit the IRG in. Damo took a Krennic, Deathtrooper and AT-ST list which is quite different to anything I’ve faced so far. This should be fun!

Luke Eddy ‘Clears Up’ Speculation On Twitter

While being interviewed on The Fifth Trooper podcast, Luke Eddy mentioned that his current favorite list included a yet-to-be-announced Imperial Corp unit.

Speculation flew around the internet about what this YTBA could be!

Luke Eddy took to Twitter today to help clear up what he said while managing to throw even more fog on the subject.

Across countless star systems, new planets are drawn into the fray, and their citizens rise to answer the call to battle. Some will become Stormtroopers, trained to fight for the Galactic Empire. Some will become Rebels, inspired to fight alongside heroes such as Han Solo, Sabine Wren, and Jyn Erso.

And who will lead them? Who will command these forces into the forests, deserts, snow, and trenches? Who will stand with them in the heat of battle? Who will guide them as laser blasts spark the night skies? Who will rally them to victory? Will it be you? Continue reading →

Impact X Blog: Rebel Pathfinders – Unit Analysis

swl21_preview1.jpg

Rebel Pathfinders are best known for the battle at the Imperial archives on Scariff. They the are the first in and last out, often putting their life on the line to enter a theatre of battle ahead of the main forces to prepare the battlefield for the rest of the army. In Star Wars: Legion the Rebel Pathfinders are the Rebels fourth elite unit option. Their training and equipment make them self-sufficient and versatile in many different roles – and as such see specialized use in the Rebel forces.

Paint All the Minis Podcast: Why I Love – Star Wars Legion (With Jay From The Fifth Trooper Podcast)

Show notes: “This week I speak to Jay from the 5th trooper podcast about why he loves Star Wars Legion.

Back in episode 87 I spoke to Alex Davy the main developer of Star Wars Legion & it was brilliant to talk to Jay about all of the things he has loved about the game and where he feels it will go in the future. 

If you aren’t aware of Star Wars Legion then simply put it is a 28mm scale tabletop war game set in the Star Wars galaxy with some great art work, simple to pick up rules, and some great models. 

Thanks to Jay for coming onto the show to tell us why he loves the game so much and if you enjoy the game too then check out the Fifth Trooper podcast if you haven’t already”
