    Going to share this link to the FFG forum where people are posting email responses from the Devs about rule questions. They are very open about things they are going to fix or clarify.

    https://community.fantasyflightgames.com/topic/273458-answered-questions-email-compilation/

    Big ones being melee does not give suppression and determining cover will have an added step to see if any part of a model is obscured first via los, which deals with AT-STs/Airspeeders having a realistic height advantage.

    Also cumbersome weapons can be used during suppression attacks even if they movie during their activation.

    Today it is very cold and snowy so no priming anything to paint.

    I did find an old GW plastic forest. The one with the molded base and the three plastic trees you assemble and can be removed for movement. One of these,

    99129999002_CitadelWoodNEW01.jpg


    Never finished it. I'd put static grass on half the base. The same static grass I put on my Legion minis.

    Going to finish up the forest and use it. My two painted speeder bikes looked pretty good zooming through.

    *edit* Jesus fuck those things are $54 now?!?!

    Let me tell you a little story of a CEO named Tom Kirby and his golden parachute.

    May he burn in hell (when he undoubtedly gets there).

    The new guy's awesome though. He's why GW is having a huge resurgence.

    On Saturday my FLGS had an Intro to Legion day and I helped out running demos with my minis so they weren't stuck trying to accommodate like 40 people with one core set.

    Lots of people played, in a lot of cases non-wargamers. One of the demos I ran was for a mother-daughter duo who ended up buying a core set (the store also had a 10% discount on all Legion stuff that day). Also a number of the folks who were there to play 40k and Infinity (there was an ITS tournament that day) picked up core sets as well. By the end of the day I went to buy an airspeeder and it only 2 were left! I also heard some of the staff commenting that they were in danger of running out of core sets.

    It was a pretty good day. Everyone who played really loved it, regardless of their background.

    Then that night I got food poisoning that I just now got over which I why I am only posting now.

    So, am I missing it, or have they still really not stated anywhere how many points a standard tournament will be?

    The following people are amazing and I love them: Wildcat, Timspork, Kias, Denada, susan, Sharp101, [GHSC]Ryctor, Matev, Matrias, ItBurns, Slapnuts, Dayspring, see317, and the unknown poster that sent me a box of Death Company! <3 If you get them as Santees you should buy them amazing things!

    Update.

    Almost finished the rebels from Core Set 2. The Imps are dragging due to painting all that white. Also I have an Airspeeder and AT-ST now.

    Airspeeder done as well as AT-ST. Turns out AT-STs are very easy to paint when they are just shaded grey.

    Just have one more squad of Stormtroopers to finishes then static grass on everything and I'll be done for now. I'll pick up a Veers when he comes out and maybe one squad of Snowtroopers for variation.

    Snowtroopers are going to be very strong with their move + free attack rule. Perfect troops to march Vader across the board with. Can't wait to pick some up

    Veers has been out since last Wednesday. He paints up super quick. Snowtroopers are this Wednesday in the US, they're already out in Europe.

    Not many people seem to realize that 2 1 speed movements = 1 3 speed movement. So yeah, Vader and snowtroopers can get downright scary with their free attack. Personally though I want to run 2 squads of snowtroopers with Veers as he can give them a free aim and with a flametrooper, they don't really lose much combat effectiveness by losing men like stormtroopers do.

    So excited for flame troopers. I took a screenshot of the flamethrower example in the FFG preview article and posted it to chats with my friends for two days straight.

    I actually stopped and measured Darth's two one speeds last time we played. Just gotta pick your target early on and keep on marching. He'll do some damage, even if only psychologically

    My only issue with the snowtroopers is that they will look silly on the brown and green grassy bases the rest of the imperial are on, and they would look silly on snow bases when everyone else is on grass.

    And this is the real reason I never paint my armies

    (Not really... Though, I do plan on neutral grey rubble bases)

    It was dumb of them to call them snowtroopers.

    They're hazardous environment troopers. Hazardous environments can be any color!

    Boy. I was definitely just done painting regular stormtroopers by the end there. Cut some corners on that last squad but they still look okay. Just gotta wait for the weird basing paint to dry on them, then tomorrow I start the static grass stage on everyone.

    Got that one last squad to add grass, then to paint the base rims black and I'm done with current stuff. Pretty happy with that Snowspeeder.

    But then you don't get specialized troops for each environment, like Sand Troopers, Shore Troopers, Lava Troopers, Shadow Troopers, and Deathtroopers!*

    * one of those is not real at this time.

    I'm pretty sure they are all real (though not necessarily canon). It fits nicely with Star Wars' whole 'every planet only has a single biome' thing.

    @timspork's ghost That looks great. I'm about on pace with you with Imperials as I have discovered a way to paint the white armor that is crazy easy & fast but rebel troopers are slow going for me. I can power through the rebel vehicles in a few hours.

    I think this is the first mini game (pre-painted notwithstanding) where I have actually spent more time playing than I have spent preparing to play. Stuff's just so easy to build and paints up quickly.

    Boba is also a new type a unit, an operative, who has command cards, but they only benefit him.

    Scouts are all scouty and can have just a two person sniper team kinda like the Rebel Commandos.

    Something looks a little off about that pose (maybe the way the legs are trailing, suggesting he's just pushed off the ground, but he's still got the gun arm out like he's mid-shot?), but I can forgive it for having a jetpack in action.

    Veers was fun to paint. It would be neat if they made a generic Imp officer box with like five in different poses then you can attach them individually to trooper squads for bonuses. Like IG commissars.

    There needs to be a special rule that if the controlling player says "You rebel scum" in that cheesy voice at any point during the game, the rebel player gets an immediate bonus to their next offensive action against a unit with an officer attached.

    I don't see how they could put Ewoks in without ruining the balance. They dodge all ranged attacks 100% of the time, and they one shot any character or even vehicle.
