So Fantasy Flight made a new game. You may remember them from the X-Wing Miniature and Star Wars Armada games. This one is all ground combat.

It looks a bit like this.

However unlike X-Wing and Armada these models come unpainted.

It just came out so is very new.

Link to FFG Legion page

So far there is the Core Set which comes with:
Darth Vader, Two Stormtrooper Squads, and 1 Speeder Bike Squad
Luke Skywalker, Two Rebel Trooper Squads, and 1 AT-RT.

Expansions right now are:
Stormtrooper squad
Rebel Trooper Squad
AT-RT
Speeder Bikes
T-47 Snowspeeder
AT-ST Walker
Extra Dice and Rulers
Some more Barricades
Cool Star Warsy boxes and moister evaporators that actually come with new cards.

Future announced expansions are:
General Veers
Snowtrooper squad
Princess Leia
Rebel Fleet Troopers
Han Solo
Rebel Commando squad


Please discuss it here? I don't know it has been forever since I made a thread in this sub forum.

    I ordered the core set which should be here today. I mainly wanted to try painting the models and play it casually with a fellow teacher after school.

    *Edit* Immediately after posting this the box arrived. Creepy.

    I'm really liking the scale of the minis. Vader is taller than a Primaris Space Marine. The plastic leaves something to be desired and it makes mold lines annoying to remove but thankfully they aren't terrible. The bent lightsabers we're also super easy to fix.

    I'm really looking forward to painting them once I get everything assembled.

    My models have very little required clean-up. I'm impressed.

    Also a second set of dice is almost a required purchase. Like all FFG games they short change you on dice.

    Last week I was actually checking up and noticed there still wasn't a thread. Almost made one, even :)

    I am at a friend's finishing our Descent campaign, but will absolutely give you my thoughts. I will open it now

    Edit: This thing is gorgeous. I can't find a single mold line on any of it. It's also going to be very big. The head alone is half the size of a soda can

    Nice! I saw a picture where someone had popped the back of the head off by running a hobby knife around the seam to access the interior to magnatize the mortar.

    I think that will definitely be possible, but I think it should be fairly easy to do from the outside as well...

    I told my friends that I wouldn't absolutely be opening everything while we played Descent, but I didn't wanna be super rude and get too involved.

    All of the sculpts/casts are amazing and surprisingly clean throughout

    I just wish they made the models the same size as the Imperial Assault figures, so I could use IA figures as legion squads,
    like Fenn Signis and the alliance rangers make a good squad of rebels. Kayn Somos makesa good squad leader for the Imperials too.

    Or a squad entirely out of some of the characters. Bossk plus the Trandoshans in the core IA set make a great alien squad of rebels. Just bring some diversity to the rebels.

    Nothing to stop me using them like that anyway I suppose.

  • timspork's ghosttimspork's ghost Master Librarian and Ghostbuster Registered User regular
    Do check your models in the core set when you get them. I've seen reports of wrong pieces and just found I got three of one stormtrooper torso instead of two of one and two of a different torso so the arm pegs don't go in.

    Apparently it is fairly painless to report this to FFG and get the correct parts. However I, being a veteran of the Imperial Guard, will simply slice the pegs off and glue the arms on, thus having a unique figure!


    Other than that I have been extremely impressed by the lack of mold lines on my models. Mostly it has just been a little clean up on the top of the stormtrooper helmets.

    The unpainted models are a huge turn-off.

    Half the reason I got into x-wing and armada was that I didn't have to paint.

  • crimsoncoyotecrimsoncoyote Registered User regular
    They're absolutely going after the WH/40k crowd and probably not X-wing/Armada (aside from the obvious license overlap), so unpainted models makes sense to me. I don't mind playing with unpainted stuff personally, so it's not a big deal though.

    I refuse to play with @Nax 's set unless it's painted though. Chop chop :biggrin:

    I am so impressed with the quality of these models, the cleanliness of the pre-cut components, and the ease of assembly. FFG are doing things some other large gaming company hasn't figured out over the past 30

    No batreps because I have no friends. I have been reading the rules though and I'm really impressed by a lot of it. It checks a lot of boxes for me.

    I'm really enjoying painting the minis. I think I've found a decent balance of quality and speed. Their huge size and softer details due to both the source material and the casting material is refreshingly low-stress after painting a lot of Infinity minis.

    And here's a shitty photo of my first finished speeder bike:

    Captain Rex Rebel test. Their camouflage in Return of the Jedi I'm pretty sure was painted onto the fabric so is very blurry and patchy in the movie. Hard to replicate. Added some minor yellow lines on the helmet kinda like in Rogue One and red light on the gun just for added color.

    bg9ce5tk9kmu.jpg

    Both of these guys look real good from a foot away more more so I am very happy with them. Rex is almost all custom colors though so the rest will probably change a bit.

    I had some Amazonbucks to spend, so the base game and Empire/Republic reinforcement boxes are coming mid-week. Really looking forward to playing this one, altho I doubt that I will do more than prime the minis.

    I'm a little worried by how much Fantasy Flight seems to be carpet-bombing the market at launch; I wonder if they are not confident that the Star Wars license will have legs, given how badly sales have dropped on other merchandise.

    I wonder if basing them with sand, but not putting glue (and so no sand) on the arc lines would make them visible and not look like ass

    I've seen some people paint vertical lines on the base rim before putting any sand on. That seems a decent solution. Though I personally intend to do something along the lines of @KetBra's suggestion.

    In other news I've been playing around with army building. I had been reluctant to pick this up at first due to not wanting to paint lots of models to complete an army. I did 40k for 26 years and now I'm much more interested in stuff like Infinity where I only need to paint a few things. At 800pts, I came up with an army consisting of like 20 models. That is well within acceptable parameters especially since these minis feel incredibly low-pressure and paint up quickly.

  • GaryOGaryO Registered User regular
    I ordered my core set, but no extra models.
    I've got enough Imperial Assault figures to make up 2 more squads of stormtroopers and 4-5 of rebels if I need them.
    I can use the AT-ST and AT-DP from the game as Legion ones if I need to aswell

    Oh and I ordered an Imperial Guard Sentinel to use as a proxy AT-RT and another squad of Guardsmen to paint up as a more combat ready version of Fleet Troopers (which will make me have 20 of them or 4 squads)

    Will probably only ever play myself so i don't mind mixing game systems, as Legion and IA are different sized.

    Nearly finished one Scout Trooper and base coated all the Stormtroopers and Vader is about midway. Also the AT-RT itself is done. I need a bunch more paint colors to do the Rebels right though.

    I played the starter scenario with @crimsoncoyote this evening, and I love this game.

    Lightsabers are hilariously strong. Vader wiped out a full strength Rebel squad in one swing. Luke was one wound short of killing both speeder bikes in one swing.


    I feel like the only counter to the AT-RT for the Imps is getting Vader into close combat with it, which is not great, but it was a very fun time and I really enjoy the system!

    Don't stormtroopers have a missile dude, that seems like a good counter to AT-RTs, assuming there's no t-47s flying around

    Yeah anything with lots of Impact X will take down an AT-RT. The missile launcher is good at range and if it gets close - impact grenades! Then, depending on the size of the squad you could be dropping 6 black dice with Impact 6!

    I ended up getting this.

    Painting is hard and kinda frustrating to get the little small details right on but at the same time it's kinda fun.

    Hopefully I get to actually play at some point.
