    At the weekend, I was able to put together a sizeable game of Legion, it was a good and vicious battle. Find out who won on my blog:

    How does it feel having Vater and Luke die? I just couldn’t accept that in a campaign. Do you need to have them for an enjoyable game?

    TBH it felt a bit weird. If it was a campaign though, you could just say they were injured and survive the battle to come back later. I’d probably not let them come back straight away though.

    In Legion, you need a commander figure to issue orders, in the core box it’s Vader and Luke, but there are a few others now: Veers, Leia, Han, for example. You can also use a normal trooper as well, but they obviously don’t have the special command cards or abilities as the known personalities do. You don’t need them for an enjoyable game, but they are enjoyable to use!

    That looks like a pretty big game!  Cover doesn’t really seem to be that effective, or were the rebels out in the open most of the time?

    Legion definitely needs a large number of figures as they only take one hit each and two six men squads soon disappear… Cover is either light or heavy and light cover reduces hits by one, heavy by two (unless the hits are critical which ignore cover). In our game we were counting cover if there was a barricade between firer and target, except when the Stormtroopers were firing from above (the landing pad). I placed my Stormtroopers in the woods which gave them light cover, but the rebels were largely out in the open, hence their high casualties…
