Star Wars Legion is finally here.
It has actually been here for a while, but I have not gotten around to writing about it. My Star Wars RPG group plays on alternate Tuesdays, and open Legion games at Miniature Market are also on Tuesday. That limits my availability, and when you combine that with a busy work schedule, I have not had as much time to play as I like.
I have played a few games by now – a 400 point, a 500 point, and 800 point games, and all have been fun. My Rebels have not yet figured out a good way to counter Lord Vader, but I have been experimenting with different lists to see what works for me. Additionally, I just got my second commander, Princess Leia, although I have not played a game with her yet. I look forward to putting her on the table with her brother to see how they work together.
My favorite unit by far is the AT-RT, specifically with the rotary cannon. It is fun to throw a lot of black dice at your opponent.
I enjoyed playing the T-47 but it went down a little too fast for my taste. Granted, I should not have flown that close to Vader, but I think it should be a little beefier for the cost.
I plan on writing up a full AAR soon enough, but please comment and let me know how you are liking the game.
