Star Wars Legion: Breakthrough


Another Sunday and another chance to pit my rebels against Victoria's Imperials. This time we upped the forces a bit and were playing with 700 points.


The Imperials had Orson Krennick and an Imperial Officer, three identical units of Stormtroopers backed up by a team of Scouts, a section of Z-74 Speeder Bikes and the ever present Boba Fett.


My Rebels were Leia Organa and a Rebel Officer, four units of Rebel Troopers, a team of Rebel Commandos and a pair of AT-RT walkers.


The terrain was laid out and we drew a very basic battle plan. Breakthrough mission with Battle Lines deployment in Clear conditions.


Rebels occupy the rocky ground

My cunning plan of AT-RT with Flame-thrower and Comms jammer worked right up until I started rolling dice!

Rebels sneak up the left flank

Newly painted scouts, why are my newly painted figures so ineffective and Victoria's so good?

Orson Krennik confers with Boba Fett. One of my highlights was taking the Mandalorian down.

Imperial troopers use cover to sneak up their left flank

Bloody speeder bikes are everywhere and constantly denying me cover

"Go on sir, we'll cover you, you'll be ok"

"I'm sure there were more of us when we started"

The Rebel right flank is looking very thin. The R5 was destroyed before it could fix the AT-RT

At the end of the game, the Imperials had three units in my deployment zone to only one of mine in theirs, another solid victory to Victoria.

    2. I wouldn’t call it the Dark Side... it’s just the less bright side ;-)

  2. Really cool, I like the added terrain. Is the dice tower part of the terrain as well?

    Looks like Victoria has your number. Seems the speeder bikes are a real nuisence, you might need an ewok to highjack one or two.

    1. Thanks Jim, yes we use the dice tower as impassable terrain. Don't want anybody in there when the dice start falling.

  4. Hi Paul & Victoria- I certainly do like what you have achieved with your LEGION Star Wars- absolutely great that you've worked together to build up such a fine collection of characters and terrain. Tried to 'Follow' you- though no table? Cheers. KEV.

  6. Another lovely looking game and your cunning plan is clearly working! You've really sucked her into this game system by losing every game, well done!
