Oh, man....minor update on my Legion adventures: I'm glad to find out that Armypainter primers stick like an absolute dream to the soft plastic models, when experience with other kinds of PVC had me fearing priming. I'm now working on a box of MK1 Clones, Rex (he's soooo hard to get in my area!) and Boba Fett - yes, I know....incidentally it's for a skirmish warband for a completely different game (Star Breach), with the intention to eventually try out Legion. With his similar style of armor, Boba Fett is going to be the force's badass leader with a jump pack.

After 25 years and hundreds of models, I am actually working on my first honest-to-God, white-armored force with them, which I have always feared to try. I found a couple of good tutorials on Youtube using a combo techniques using washes and Contrast paints to make less-painful Clones and Stormtroopers.

Definitely cannot wait for the AT-RT and the Arcs. I'm even half tempted to get one of Mel's Miniatures 3-d printed Clone riders/drivers from Shapeways and stick it on a Rebel AT-RT for the time being.

I am a sucker for a miniature partworks if it does make it's way to the UK. It would be a good way to get the exclusive event models re-released as well.

Makes sense that they would fly. They certainly did that a lot in Rebels.

So this thread is long enough I'll bite. How is the game played (don't need too many details), what's the scale of the miniatures, and so far what eras have been covered? If they're doing anything Old Republic I'd buy in.

That's more of a general discussion topic, there's a whole forum for FFG games https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/forums/show/29.page

But in short:
Spoiler:

-- reinforced platoon level skirmish force with 6-9 units/vehicles per side, custom dice and custom measurement sticks. Think Bolt Action level game more than 40K level of stuff on table
-- heroic 1/48 or 32mmish, generally larger than standard 28mm games, about a head taller than Imperial Assault on average
-- OT empire, OT Rebels, Clone Wars Republic, CW Separatists (any faction can fight any faction), with CW factions still being new and not many releases as yet
-- Nothing from new trilogy or Old Republic has been announced, and Old Republic specifically is extremely unlikely to ever happen in Legion


Back on topic, I'm still waiting for current releases to properly restock. I was finally able to get a second Stormtrooper upgrade kit, but the Clonetrooper upgrades, B2 droids and Phase II clones are still pretty much sold out everywhere except ebay gougers

Other than the Stormies that stuff hasnt even been released here yet!

On the discussion of materials, all new stuff is going to be in HIPS from now apparently, who knows about options though.

Also Iden Versio article is up (as Adepticon is cancelled);

She's strong for sure. She doesn't ignore cover in most cases though which evens her out compared to a lot of other characters. She's a really interesting playstyle addition for Empire if nothing else. Excited to give her a try and see what Inferno Squad does as well.

This is FFG and I have been a fan of Armada since it came out. Keeping up with demand is....questionable. It's already hard to find several Legion products, and several Armada products have been hard to get for YEARS.

We'll find out soon enough eh.

Yeah, with FFG stuff if you're not buying it when it comes out you're going to be SoL for months.

There's a wee rumour going about on the FFG forum that the Inferno & Clan Wren boxes will be a bit bigger than expected; five generics and two named characters in each, can be fielded as the named unit with said characters or a generic one.

It's being said that Wren gets Sabine's mum and brother(I don't recall their names) plus five Mandalorians, while Inferno gets Meeko and Hask plus five Imperial Special Forces.

I was planning on getting Inferno regardless, but if true that would make both boxes very appealing as I'd assumed they'd only have a few models.

Also there's ostensibly been comments on social media from FFG people implying that Iden & Cassian should be arriving on time, but everything after that is varying degrees of up in the air given the pandemic.

Ursa and Tristan Wren. It would make sense for then to be the named ones.

I'll be picking them up and I don't even play Rebels.

Inferno Squad and Iden I will get, begrudgingly.

Would be easier for the game if they would sell all the cards without models and allow people to use 3rd party stuff

would be tricky to balance between "not losing too much money" and "lose players because of nothing is available

but to be a healthy game and get people into it it could help (like the f2p people in PC games help to build up the playerbase and contribute to the health of the game without spending money)

There’s no reason to do that. If people want to proxy there’s plenty of online tools for getting cards. Most of the stock issues are with new releases anyway. There’s plenty of old stuff out in the wild. Probably the only game I can reliably say that about locally. More than GW even.

selling official cards bring is more money than units not being available at all and people printing their own

to get a game running you need a playerbase above a specific level.
the best game does not work if there are not enough people playing it.

having to many people who want to try it but cannot because the new core box is out of stock (and no one is interested in the old one) having a starter box with everything but the models (as I guess those are the issue why they cannot deliver) would help as people don't wait forever
(guy wanted to start in december, he only got 2 units for his Imperial list yet as everything else he wants is out of stock, if he needs to wait much longer he won't start playing at all)

Maybe where you are man, over here it's a nightmare. I ordered a Dewback box at the end of December and got it last week. I'm still waiting on the two Clone Wars core sets I ordered at the same time. Over here restocks take months and they're often sold out again almost immediately - same thing happened with X-Wing.

Glad to see the Phase 1 ARF helmet in the AT-RT, casting up enough for my whole force will be a bit of a chore but at least I can do the army I envisioned now.

Wren & Inferno look brilliant.

The only turd in the stew is the probable delay in us being able to get hold of them all.
