“Ezra, the armor I wear is five hundred years old. I reforged it to my liking, but the battles, the history, the blood all lives within it. And the same goes for every Mandalorian.”

Art and war don’t often mix, but Sabine Wren is one of the rare exceptions. Carrying on the warrior traditions of her Mandalorian forebears, she is a formidable warrior, equally skilled in both ranged and hand-to-hand combat.

Impact X to be archived on Imperial Discipline

“ANNOUNCEMENT: As part of everything that has been going on within the community, Nick and LJ have decided not to renew the legionimpact.com domain. Instead, they’ve asked that I archive the general articles and unit analysis from Impact X on Imperial Discipline, which I’ve done. Gathering Legions will live on as a separate project in the future. While I’m sad to see Impact X go I’m happy that I can preserve the extremely insightful content they created, and have tried to make the distinction clear between their content and my own on my website.”

Without a doubt the battle damaged ‘dark father’ was my favorite model to sculpt, a lot of love when into this model.

I’ve also completed a squad of muddy liberators to fight off my previously released grunge troopers! (the squad leader has some fun lore attached to him)”
