Legion!

After copious printing and painting a set of Ruins for a different themed table we had a new board setup to give a spin, so time to throw down!

It’s been a while…  Bobba and Veers facing off against Luke.

SETUP

2019-03-10 Legion Lee vs Paul (1)

 

 

It was going to be a relatively straightforward setup and slug for the middle objectives.  Much blood was expected to flow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

In general I’d set up my Snowies to push left and centre, and speeders to wipe out the right flank.  Bobba would assist left, with Veers supporting from the middle.

TURN 1

2019-03-10 Legion Lee vs Paul (12)

 

We both went with 2 Pip cards and Paul grabbed the initiative.

 

 

At the end of Turn 1 I’ve done some damage with the Speeders but everywhere else there’s minor casualties.   Luke is in a VERY dangerous situation though.

Turn 2

2019-03-10 Legion Lee vs Paul (36)

 

 

I need to shut down Luke quickly, so go with Whipcord launcher.  I’m expecting Son of Skywalker but Paul throws down Ambush.  Luckily I win the throwoff.

With Veers dead I don’t have another 1 pip card.  I know what’s coming but nothing I can do….

 

 

 

 

 

 

For some reason the photo for the decimation isn’t found in the Imperial database.. But suffice to say Luke smashes Bobba to pieces then moves into my Snow Troopers to cover himself from ranged fire…

The game ends 7-3 to the Imperials.

END GAME THOUGHTS

Extremely bloody.  I normally go for the walkers early but ignored them to focus on the troopers that could score.

Luke nearly tipped the whole game.

I have Veers.  Generic general from now on!

Great game.  The change in scenery from our Spaceport set up made quite a difference as lines of sight were opened up a bit more.

The board looked amazing – more top work from Imperial Terrain!
