Fantasy Flight Previews General Veers Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

General Veers is probably my favorite character from Star Wars. For all the series tells us that the Empire is cold, ruthless, and efficient, it’s at the battle of Hoth that we finally really see it. Veers commands that battle brilliantly, taking out key parts of the Rebel’s base and causing a rather quick and panicked evacuation for the forces stationed there. Soon, he’ll be able to bring that to your tabletops in Star Wars: Legion.

Fantasy Flight Announces New Star Wars: Legion Expansions

In the base game for Star Wars: Legion, the Imperials get themselves the iconic Speeder Bikes from the battle of Endor. In the expansions that are out, they can pick up an AT-ST, also from that same battle. However, the Rebels don’t have much in the way of Endor-related figures. That will soon change, as Fantasy Flight has announced the Han Solo as well as the Rebel Strike Team expansion kits.

Thursday Terrain Corner

It’s slow going, ladies and gentlemen, but we’ll make it to that weekend eventually! I mean, time goes forward, right? Right?!
I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m waiting on some packages in the mail, but it seems like this week’s taking an eternity. The last couple zipped by. This week? Not so much. But we just gotta hang on and we’ll make it there.
Plus, this weekend is Board Game Day up at the library. And while most don’t use much in the way of terrain, that doesn’t mean we can’t all enjoy terrain for whatever games you might be playing this weekend.

Today in the Terrain Corner, we have: Fantasy Flight Games Announces Two New Game Mats For Star Wars: Legion and New MDF Scenery Kits From Pwork Wargame.

Monday Terrain Corner

Hey everyone out there in Internet Land. For those here in the States (besides Florida), how’re you handling the time change? Being a morning person already, it wasn’t so bad for me. I actually felt that much of yesterday was later than it actually was (so, the opposite of what you’d expect). I’d be going, “wait, it’s not 4:30 yet?” when it was actually something like 1:30. But I’m getting the hang of it. Anyway, we need to make sure your gaming tables look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Fantasy Flight Games Announces Priority Supplies and Barricades for Star Wars: Legion, North Pass Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, The Lost Islands 3D printable Terrain for RPG and Wargames Up On Kickstarter, and The Hall of Portals Gaming Map Available From Heroic Maps.

So, you’ve got your Vader and you’ve got your AT-ST and you’ve got your Speeder Bikes and you’ve got your Stormtroopers… but how do you turn that into an actual army in Star Wars: Legion? That’s what we get a look at today from Fantasy Flight. They’ve posted up an article about how army building works in the game. And down at the bottom of the page, they’ve also got links to the Learn to Play guide as well as the Rules Reference. So there’s that, too.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Star Wars: Legion Launch Day Events

Star Wars: Legion was arguably the biggest announcement at Gen Con 2017. Since August, everyone has been chomping at the bit to get their hands on the game.

Fantasy Flight Previews 74-Z Speeder Bikes For Star Wars: Legion

For the longest time, the speeder bike chase on Endor was my favorite part of Star Wars (later usurped by the Battle of Hoth, because I’d seen Jedi about a dozen times before I’d seen Empire). Soon, we’ll be able to recreate that exciting battle on our tabletops with the 74-Z Speeder Bikes for Star Wars: Legion. Just watch out for trees.

Fantasy Flight Previews AT-RT For Star Wars: Legion

While we never see the Rebels using the AT-RT in the classic trilogy of Star Wars films, it was a piece of equipment that they could’ve possibly picked up, as we see Clone Troopers using them in the prequel trilogy. Not as heavily armed or armored as the AT-ST, the vehicle still gave some added protection to its rider, as well as some powerful weapons that a regular soldier wouldn’t’ve been able to carry on their own. They’ll be making their way to Star Wars: Legion, and Fantasy Flight is giving you a preview.

Star Wars: Legion Demos Coming To Select Retailers March 8th

It feels like an eternity ago when Star Wars: Legion was announced at Gen Con. You’ve spent many long months waiting, anticipating, reading previews, watching videos. Maybe you’re even one of the lucky few who got a chance to try it way back in August. Well, the wait is getting shorter all the time, and if you want to get a hands-on experience with the game, you’re only 3 weeks (and change) out from doing so if your LGS is one of the lucky ones who will get to start showing demos of the product on March 8th.

Fantasy Flight Previews Command Cards From Star Wars: Legion

Commanders in an army are the ones who give orders to the lower-ranking soldiers. These orders are represented in Star Wars: Legion, by you moving the figures around the board, but also by the Command Cards. They determine who will have priority during a turn, being played at the start of each. There are some that are neutral, and can be used by either army. But some are specific to the Dark or Light sides. You get a look at several of these in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews the Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

While the Empire had their huge, military machine. The Rebels could only count on those individuals willing to pick up arms and fight. Most of these troopers weren’t career soldiers, but just wanted a better form of government for the galaxy. However, though they might not have been soldiers before, they trained just as hard as veteran troops in order to become a fighting force to be reckoned with. Get a preview of the Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion pack for Star Wars: Legion here.

Fantasy Flight Previews Rebel Units From Star Wars: Legion Starter

So, we already know what the Dark Side forces are going to be like in the Star Wars: Legion starter. And, unless you want to just play Dark Side versus more Dark Side, you’re gonna need some Light Side troopers in there, too. That’s just what you get a look at here in this preview.

Fantasy Flight Previews Leia Organa and Fleet Troopers Expansions for Star Wars: Legion

Arguably the most influential member of the Rebel Alliance was Leia Organa. A diplomat, a military commander, a strike team member. She did it all. Soon, she’ll be doing it all on your tabletops in Star Wars: Legion with the Leia Organa Commander expansion. And coming along with her, there’s also the Fleet Troopers set, because she certainly couldn’t do all that work just on her own. Fantasy Flight gives us a preview of both here today.

Fantasy Flight Games Posts Preview of the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

While, in the movies, Stormtroopers might just be the faceless cannon fodder that gets fed into the blaster fire of the rebels, they actually were an elite fighting force. Trained in various tactics and equipped well by the Empire, they were something to be feared on the battlefield. Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview of the Stormtrooper Unit Expansion pack for the upcoming Star Wars: Legion minis game. Check it out.

Fantasy Flight Previews AT-ST, T-47 For Star Wars: Legion

Along with the lightsabers and the star ships, the various vehicles of the Star Wars universe are just as iconic. The Battle of Hoth wouldn’t be anywhere near as interesting if it weren’t for the T-47s and their harpoons tripping the walkers. And the battle of Endor wouldn’t be nearly as thrilling if there weren’t the giant AT-STs maneuvering their way through the woods. Both of those are coming to Legion, and you can check out these previews to see how they’ll be implemented.

Fantasy Flight Previews Battlefields in Star Wars: Legion

Star Wars is truly an interstellar setting. In the movies, we see swamp planets, desert planets, forest planets, ice planets, and all other manner of locations. As such, the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion can take place in just about any sort of environment you can imagine. But how do the rules for those different locations work in the game? What role will terrain take in the game? That’s just what you get a look at here.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces General Veers Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

As I mentioned in the other Legion preview post, the Battle of Hoth is my favorite part in any Star Wars movie. And, honestly, my favorite character in the movies is General Veers. He’s the one truly competent Imperial officer you see, and he’s obviously sure of his abilities. And soon, you’ll be able to bring that confidence to your Star Wars: Legion tabletops, as he’s getting his own figure. Check him out.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Snowtroopers Unit Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Legion

My favorite part in any Star Wars movie is the assault on Hoth. That cold-weather attack finally showed what the movies had been telling us: that the Imperial Army was a major fighting force to be reckoned with and feared. All we’d seen up to that point was the taking of the Tantiv IV. So this was really the Imperial’s chance to shine. For those that want to recreate that scene on the tabletop, you’ll be able to soon with the Snowtrooper Assault expansion pack for Star Wars: Legion. Check it out.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Movement in Star Wars: Legion

The battlefields of the Star Wars universe are anything but static. Speeder bikes zoom all around. Walkers tromp through the underbrush. Foot soldiers look to take up defensive positions, or move up to capture said positions. But how will this dynamic battlefield translate to the world of Star Wars: Legion? Glad you asked, because that’s just what Fantasy Flight is previewing for us today.

Fantasy Flight Previews Command Cards For Star Wars: Legion

Without a coherent plan and a competent commander, even the best-trained and best-equipped troops will fall in battle. So, making sure your soldiers get the intel they need to know what their objectives are on the battlefield is important. And a commander choosing the best options as the battle flows along is also important. In this preview for Star Wars: Legion, Fantasy Flight shows off how the Command Cards work in the game and how you’ll use them against your opponent.
