Yesterday saw Victoria and I passing another afternoon playing another game of Star Wars: Legion. Like last time we both used 500pt forces.
My Rebels were a Rebel Commander, four units of Rebel Troopers and a unit of Rebel Commandos. R2-D2 and C3-PO would be adding to the fun.
Victoria went for pretty much the same victorious combination that she used last week. An Imperial Commander, three units of Storm Troopers, one unit of Speeder Bikes and Boba Fett for destructive killy-ness!
The Battlefield cards had us with the Recover the supplies objective, deploying with Advanced positions and with the Lost in the wilderness condition.
Terrain was laid out and the objectives scattered.
This week Victoria has painted a tower for the collection and I think she had made a rather excellent job of it.
Some scenes from the battle.
|Rebel troops and their commander form a defensive position in support of operations|
|It was Victoria's idea to use her air-plants as terrain and I think they work quite well.|
|R2 and Boba Fett play hide and seek around the tower.|
|Rebel troopers prepare to outflank the Imperials.|
|Storm troopers, after me, durm, durm, durm, durm de durm, durm de durm,|
|Rebels check out a Imperial R4 but the supplies have already been claimed.|
|R2 actually survived this game.|
|Remains of the Rebel Commandos reach cover and survived the game.|
Well we had a solid Imperial victory again. Things started to go bad for the Rebels when in the first shot of the game half of the Commandos were killed. My 'white defensive dice' woes continued; four failed saves from four hits saw the Rebel Commander taken out, another six man team of Troopers were taken out by six hits.
The less said about the red defensive dice the better, Boba Fett made every save that he was called on to make!
On the bright side, R2-D2 and C3-PO survived the game having claimed an objective token. Boba Fett left a trail of destruction including taking the bounty of the Rebel Commander.
But, with 4 lots of supplies tokens to the Rebels one it was again a solid victory to the forces of the Imperium.
