Excited for Inferno Squad. Kind of annoyed their official title is Imperial Special Forces though, as that's literally two keywords jammed together being treated as a unit name.

That would be because they are wearing helmets; more specifically flight helmets, because they can act as both pilots and infantry, just like the old Space Above & Beyond show.

FFG sculpts their Legion models with somewhat heroic scale. It's largely not as pronounced as GW models and mostly apparent for head size. If your measure of things is realistic proportions, yes, the heads of Legion models should look big to you.

Something seems odd about the T-21 on the Imperial Special forces, it looks like it's different to the usual depiction of the T-21:

New tournament rules are up;
https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2020/4/6/new-directives/

Change to victory conditions (now on MoV and not SoS) and introducing silhouette templates to get around the stupidity of being able to shoot models because you can see the tip of their weapons.

I absolutely see the need for tournaments, to shut up the neckbeards, but sometimes I am super glad I am a casual player.

Casual At All Cost 'Neckbeards' are just as prominent, especially in an IP like Star Wars.

It's weird; part of the problem with Legion is just that it uses TLOS in a system where height doesn't matter for terrain outside of 6" increments. In most cases, the minor dependencies in height can be resolved by having taller terrain, but level design is still completely up to the players so issues like this crop up.

Fate in your hands is pretty good considering she can share tokens.
That really is the clones things huh, sharing so many tokens.
Also, is it me or is.....her pistol better than the blaster? I'm going to get both so I can run either, bit it seems the pistols is better.

I'd consider it for the range advantage. It may not be a good comparison, but my Rebels are mostly restricted to range 2, so I'm pretty aware of the limitations of that. Gaining a longer ranged attack on a character I don't want to see charged by someone with a lightsaber appeals to me.

As a force multiplier and with squishy white defence I dont think having her in a shoot out is really the best place for her.

What can I say? If my force multipliers don't come to the fight, the fight inevitably comes to them. I can think of worse ways to spend those 5 points than to give me a bit of room to maneuver and drive off things that come after her.

Past couple of weeks have seen the ARC and BX droid articles;

Been loving the Commandos with swords but really not sold on any of the three other choices. The snipers seem great as a cheaper activation but as the AI is move or dodge they need to be given an order to make use of their ability (or to actually hit anything) which does not mesh very well with how CIS play.
ARCs just seem flat broken with all the token sharing stuff the faction does.

I may have to get those commando droids. I really want some Star Wars combat droids that don’t have that prequel “Roger roger” feeling. I still have my fingers crossed that FFG will make the security droids from the prison ship episode of The Mandalorian.

Have you tried looking at 3d prints, Bob? There are a wide variety to suit most tastes if you have access to a printer but I do love the BX droids.
In record timing, FFG have released the last of this waves preview articles, one would assume to clear the decks before the Gencon announcements on the 30th.

Sure, so you have to pick. The point is you do not have to make these choices in other sets.

I think the expectation is that you'll buy more than one unit? Same way one unit of ARC Troops will be built with Fives/Echo, but in theory you could build a future box without them at all?

That's awkward in its own way, since two packs of 7 leaves you with 14 figures you can only use 13 of. It's also just not a unit you really want to spam. I agree the intent was to retain the value of the pack while retaining "uniques" in it, but building the uniques as generic alt sculpts really doesn't have a practical application with the way this unit's options are laid out. It's just an awkward breakdown that would have been greatly improved by either having an 8th figure in the box, or making the ISF unit a 3 man base.
