I'm curious to see what AMG pulls out of their bag as well. I think all this first line of scum stuff was at least partially in development by FFG.
Mandalorian stuff is finally getting into circulation
I hope we get an old Obiwan and the Rebels gang for the game at some point.
Thrawn should show up.
More gangsters (jabba, bib fortuna, enfys nest, etc.

I think we are getting some announcements as part of the Star Wars celebration later this week, if not then we have the AMG transmission event in early June.

We have already seen old Bobba and swoop bike (look to be criminal faction) models shown so hopefully is a full Mandalorian wave. I believe Moff Gideon and Dark Troopers were also confirmed but not shown.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to some news on models beyond the Shadow Collective. I hope we'll get something in the coming weeks.

Renders of Boba and the bikes have been posted on the previous page if you want to check them out.

Damn it! I have have a spare Krennic I wanted to convert to Gideon. I'll have to find a new use for that now.

Dark Troopers I'll take, thank you very much.

There will also be Ahsoka and... Ewoks.

Thanks for the link. I can't wait to see what comes next
I'm sure some sand people are in the works as well as the biker gang from Boba fett.
I'm also 99.99% sure we're getting a rancor ridden by old boba.

I'd be happy if we got a Rancor. I wouldn't even insist on Boba riding it, though I reckon for a wargame a Rancor mount is a more sensible choice than a free one.

I wonder if they could make such a kit modular and have both a harnessed and a naked Rancor. I was actually surprised to find some of the character kits to have posing options when they moved to plastic. That's a pretty cool thing FFG did there, using available sprue space for some options. I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

I'd imagine it's going to be fairly common going forward; AMG have been doing it with Marvel for a while and, at the very least, I'd think they'll continue with options for helmets/non-helmeted heads etc. for named characters. Probably find out more in a couple of weeks when they showcase their first non-FFG stuff in full.

That's good to know. I don't have much experience with Crisis Protocol and the things that stand out to me on AMG models are the tactical rocks and swirly crap.

Just to get the obligatory out of the way...

Spoiler:



So, after getting my Ewok fix from...

https://star-wars-legion.com/

... because apparently you need to log into an account to see the Instagram link above, well. They look the part. Good for Ewok fans.

Good to get Din and Grogu, though. Finally we can continue Mando's adventures in bad parenting on the tabletop by bringing a kid to a war zone. Yay!

And now for the other obligatory thing: Can we get Ahsoka before I die of old age, please? Thanks.

AMG added an article for Gar Saxon and I assume that concludes the look at the Shadow Collective wave.

There's also an article about an upcoming card pack with new cards for the three bounty hunters. Card pack description from Asmodee's store:

Players can hire some of the most infamous mercenaries in the galaxy to join their armies with this card pack for Star Wars: Legion! The Upgrade Card Pack II contains updated unit cards for notorious bounty hunters Boba Fett, Bossk, Cad Bane, and even the A-A5 Speeder Truck that make them playable using the new mercenary rules introduced with the Shadow Collective Starter Set. Additionally, players will also find copies of the three new command card for use with mercenary units from the Shadow Collective Starter Set. Finally, this pack also includes a selection of 60 upgrade cards designed to help them get the most out of their mercenaries, including the new cards introduced in the Shadow Collective Starter Set.

Personally I think the newer sets are approaching GW level of plastic production quality and include a reasonable degree of customization for different weapon loadouts etc. They're usually simpler to put together (with some notable exceptions....yes I am looking at you B1 Droids!) and have almost zero mould lines or gaps to fill. What they are, is less elaborate and don't have scenic bases or the like. Maybe that will change when we start to see the AMG sculpts come through (though their first one is up to see....)

Are they pricy? I'd say that they're fairly averagely costed, depending on the set. Should note that they do all come with a plethora of cards and tokens to use them in game so you can't compare that price-tag purely on the model value.

Also new pics.



We might see a bit more stuff up today; their big Ministravaganza event was supposed to start but some of their staff have Covid so it's delayed but they're allegedly still going to do some reveals online.

Giving Grogu options is good business. People will buy multiple boxes to get all the Grogus.

On the one hand I forgot that this was supposed to happen around this time, so there was no anticipation to get wrecked. On the other hand, now that I am reminded it's kind of a shame if it doesn't happen (as planned anyway). On the other, other hand, I certainly won't complain if we get something after all. I'm ready for some new stuff to look forward to.

It's still happening apparently and hopefully won't be too far down the line; maybe only a couple of weeks or so. All the promo material is presumably already done and (on the Legion side of things) they'd surely want to dovetail it in with the Shadow Collective release (next week!) and discuss how mercenaries are actually going to work before those rules drop. We'll see. The unique list builds for the existing factions were also supposed to drop prior to the event but haven't appeared yet. Hopefully there's some good stuff regardless.

What's with the funny hat?

So the battle force article for the Shadow Collective suggests that battle forces are themed lists of units with an alternate force organization chart that in the case of the Shadow Collective does not deviate much from the standard one. That doesn't sound too terrible.

That's exactly what the battle forces are (they talked about them in a bit of detail earlier this year when they were announced). Themed lists that play around with the Force Organization and are more specialized; restrict the options but improve what you can take.

The Republic 501st one is themed around Anakin (obviously), more veteran clones and more dynamic/mobile clone forces, ergo, it lets you take a lot of ARC Troopers. The Imperial Blizzard Force (invasion of Hoth from Ep5.) is focused on Veers/Vader and is centred around heavier/vehicle type gameplay. Lots of Snowtroopers and adds a type of Stormtrooper unit that can take more heavy weapons than standard.

Naturally but I'm sure they'll appear down the line. The Shadow Collective Battleforce is a very specific thing (without Jawas) rather than any broader 'Scum and Villainy' type faction and these initial Mercenary releases are designed to go along with that; the Pykes and Black Sun just give options for the other factions too. Having mercs in the game is how they're addressing things like Bounty Hunters going forward so it's pretty open ended in that regard. It's not like they've added a single Hutt yet either and between those, Mando, the already announced 'Old-man Boba' and fan favourites like Jawas or Hondo and his pirate gang there's a lot they can do with mercenaries.

Nice IG droids.

I've been playing Legion too long for the battle forces to be a good deal for me. Maybe the Rebels since I don't have cold weather troops yet and the droids can be painted differently, but I'd have to figure out something for Leia and Chewie.

You could always sell/trade the R2-D2, C-3PO, and Chewie to a Republic player.

Oh, Chewie is available for the Republic now, too? Maybe I need a second one after all.
