Shoretroopers look great, aside from the squad leaders pose. I prefer the leader to be directing the troops or something. Not just standing there like a dudebro.

Dewback is cool, great sculpt and would be pretty fun to paint I think.

Are there many canon tanks in Star Wars currently


Ground vehicles never appeared on-screen (outside of Rogue 1), of course, so not really. West End Games had some in their RPG source books. And the various Star Wars RTS games had tanks, which might have been based off of the WEG ones (I don't recall). That's about as "canon" as you're going to get with tanks.

Timothy Zahn would occasionally include a ground vehicle that hadn't been seen on-screen in his novels, but those were all WEG creations (since the non-movie background fluff when Zahn wrote his first novels was essentially the WEG RPG sourcebooks).

We'll find out soon enough eh.

The Dewback rider is cool, Shoretroopers I'm not fussed about because the concept always struck me as daftly specific. That said, they provide an opportunity to run Storm Commandos if someone wants to convert some Scouts, so that's cool for people who play the game.

Boys, it's time to go hunt some Krayt dragons!

And when it comes to Imperial Tanks, I need to find a copy of this one - apparently it's called a SC2-M Repulsor tank and a model was made for Imperial Assault. Looks similar to tank for the older SW Battlefront game.

A while ago I said I'd buy Star Wars Legion if they did Clone Wars. Well, here we are and I've preordered the Core Set. I'm super excited to build my droid army and I cannot wait until they release B2 Supers/BX-Commando droids and hopefully a tactical droid. So hyped.

Huh. I almost didn't recognize Dooku with his hands attached.

Still waiting for Ahsoka without whom I have little reason to get a Clone Wars force. Well, Bombad General Jar Jar might sway me, too.

I'm not following FFG outside of this thread, but any reason other than that they didn't show anything yet? In spite of featuring in Episode 1's big final battle, I imagine Gungans are pretty specialized, much like Wookies and Taun-Tauns. It stands to reason we'd see clones and battle droids first since they're the mainstay of the Clone Wars.

Nehekhara lives! Sort of!

Yea like you say they are pretty specialised so I don't think they'll turn up soon. Although there was a 2nd Battle for Naboo too...

Did battle droids have different colour schemes during the Clone Wars or were they all the pale stone we see them in during Episode 1?

I can't say I remember any in different colors. It's been a while since I watched the Clone Wars, though. I do remember an episode where the Jedi used a couple of captured and reprogrammed B1s that had blue markings, and that didn't raise an eyebrow with the separatists they infiltrated. So I assume the standard color isn't necessarily the only accepted color in universe.

Some had colored markings on the head/legs/backpack, but I think they were largely brown. The assassin droids, which had slightly different heads, were black though. Also, the commander droids came in different colors.

Also, the droids that directly served the Geonosians had a much darker, red-brown colouration as standard.

But yeah, in general they're nowhere near as customisable as the clones if you want to stick to canon. Judging by some of the horrifying(to a rivet counter like myself) things folk have been doing to Stormtroopers though that won't be an issue, folk will paint the droids how they like.

Probably in American Handegg team colours.

Those Super Battle Droids look amazing. I can't wait to pick some up! Count Dooku is a bit of an obvious first pick for a Seperatist leader but I was kind of hoping for Asajj Ventress.


@Kroem

If you go by legends continuity some B1 Battle droids were painted in a gun metal/rusty brown color scheme (Per Republic Commando) and several B2s received forest camouflage. But if you want to stick to canon you could paint some B1s as Security Droids as they are functionally identical iirc.

Yup. I expect we'll get Operative versions of Ventress and Ahsoka first, then maybe Commander alts later on.

I'm not familiar with the game but, that would make sense. She was not a major CIS commander.

The reveal of the AAT and the Saber tank has made me incredibly excited for this game. I was originally going to trade off my clones but, man, I frickin' love the Saber tank.

I dunno about the AAT, I want to see actual measurements of the model before I buy it to make sure the scale is correct - not buying blind again after the X-34.

I'm in the same boat, I've never been a fan of herohammer and FFG always go a bit off piste with cards, tokens and other bumf in the rules.

However, the models look nice and I'm sure I can find a sensible set of rules to use!
