If anyone wants to see some close ups on the models (at least some of them), the wickedly talented Sorastro over on Youtube has painting tutorials for both Luke Skywalker and the Rebel troops.

You can find them here:
Luke: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1OVnCFq1j04
Rebel troopers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X3oXsOeFx2I&t=247s

Hopefully he will get started on the Empire models soon!

Did you read the page?

This article is about an Easter egg.

This article covers a subject that was included as an Easter egg in a Star Wars Legends source and may not have been considered canon within the Legends continuity.

The Buick is a recurring easter egg present throughout every game in the Rogue Squadron series of games, as well as Star Wars: Episode I: Battle for Naboo, as a special unlockable


Also thanks for the model views! I do hope we'll see the opposite to Veers and Snowtroopers soon, as otherwise it seems really limited.

Those Rebels need to raid a few armories and motor pools and steal some Imperial gear.

No reason that the vehicles can't be used by either side.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Another painting tutorial from Sorastro, this time the AT-RT. I am noticing something troubling with this model that I didn't see in the others. It seems like this is not regular "spure" plastic, like I thought it was. This looks more like the "plastic" that is used in Warmachine/Hordes. Not resin, but not really plastic either. This makes me sad. Still, the model is nice, and Sorastros painting is as great as ever. The base looks great!

Somebody in the SW Legions Facebook group posted photos showing that the minis use the same "socket and key" system as Runewars, which apparently makes it difficult to assemble. So much so that some people just cut the keys off and superglue it.

Don't know about assembly, but if that AT-RT is a production piece, the detail is way better than what they put out for Imperial Assault.

Hopefully the QC and scaling between figures is better too.

Watching the two new videos from Sorastro makes me hopeful.

Re: The material: To my knowledge they've never said it would be any material other than the PVC used in all their other figures. Has anyone seen anything different?

They also just FAQ'd a X-Wing ship to no longer have certain upgrade slots which means that it can't even use some of the cards included in its packaging.

Marrying miniature to upgrade cards has always been an ugly practice of FFG's but now it is even worse. They really should just sell cards separately and reduce the cost of their models.


When it comes to X-Wing, people often buy ships just for the cards. Marrying Models and Cards means they sell far more models than they would otherwise sell.

I must be one of the oddballs then, I buy the ships for the sake of the ships themselves. Of course, I’ve been known to also supplement my shipyards with the micromachine ships and the hot wheelsversions (the U-Wing, for example, is the same exact size).

I imagine that the SW legion figures are the same material they use for Runewars for production. I’ve not had any problem with those models assembly-wise, but glue does help keep ‘em together.

I have suspicion the models we’ve seen displayed/painted may be pre-production kits, possibly different from the final material that will be used - unless that’s somehow against the law to use for the paint tutorials?

It never ends well

Well, conversely, there's also a lot of non-gamers (I know some, actually) that just want the ships as collectibles. Being decently prepainted is a big boon for them.

Never having played any of FFG's games before and reading through everything to try to sort it all out I have some questions maybe they are answered maybe they are still pending.

1.) Is there a difference between the storm troopers or rebels you get in the core and the ones in the add on boxes?

2.) Is the core game, and addon's being released at the same time?

3.) Is the snow troopers and Veers going to be released at the same time?

Reason I ask is because I want to do a preorder but talk about not being very clear. I don't want to have to wait if i include say Veers in my order for several months after the rest of the stuff is released. If that is the case I will just get him later.

My plan is to order the core, AT ST, T 47 airspeeder, and Veers. Not knowing if ordering more then one core is worthwhile and wanting to play it safe for once.

Any help would be appreciated.

1. The base units duplicated in the expansion boxes are likely to come with extra cards that are not included within the core box.

2. Usually the expansions come a few weeks or so after the base game.

3. I suspect they will come a while after the first wave of expansions.

Thanks for the quick responses. I think i will order the base game AT ST and T47 airspeeder, so i can land free shipping then pick up Veers with whatever else comes out after.

I was wondering what the difference would be and now I am totally glad i preordered the AT-ST.... it is total beefcake over the old one.

I’m impressed by the details on these minis. Runewars is actually very decent, but these look even better. Now if only FFG would give us head, arm, and weapon options for the regular troopers they’d really have my attention.

Oh my, that's quite a dramatic difference. I might get that just to display the model.

I am totally disappointed about the scale difference!
I was still hoping to use at least some IA minis.

I can't understand why FFG chooses bigger minis for a game that needs more minis as IA.
If it would be the other way around I might understand it, but this way...

cheers and keep on gaming, Agis - http://www.adpublishing.de

So they can sell you the same units twice and screw you out of using standard terrain in the process!

You'll complain when things are out of scale, and you'll complain when things are properly in scale.

So, they'll just do this and people will still buy regardless of complaints.

Actually, It will just not get bought if it is subpar.


No complaint necessary, but reasonable accommodation would be expected. Especially if you want to increase sales to add to an already established line that would have been sweet to add to budding armies. Heck, FFG looks to me like they shot themselves in the face and lost an opportunity.

You could have used those figures in the RPG, The tabletop, games of IA... But instead, you get to rebuy odd scaled figures that you can't use. Hell, might as well just get some WOTC figures, make squads up and put them on the table, instead since scale doesn't matter. Good call, whoever made it.

MM sold out of this before I could get an order in. I'm really hoping FFG printed plenty of these and the release won't be a mess. I'll find another seller but i'm gonna be bummed if they end up cancelling my order cause they didn't get enough in to fulfill orders or something.

The AT-ST looks great! That scale feels much better than the Imperial Assault one. I'm just a little bummed about the pose. With the type of material they are using for Legion, it feels like they could make it a bit more dynamic.
