Star Wars: Legion - Not quite the return of the Jedi


Victoria and I played Star Wars: Legion again on Saturday and my Rebels managed to get a draw, I think the best result that they have returned in about a year!

Victoria's Empire force was pretty much the same force she always uses, just a few equipment swap-outs. I picked a Rebel force led by Cassian Andor assisted by K2S0.


We would be playing the Key Positions objective with the Major Offensive deployment with Clear Conditions.


A few shots from the game.

Based on how much they have hurt me in previous games, I'd managed to take out the Imperial Scouts and Speeder bikes very early on. 

I also took down Boba Fett before he managed to cause too much havoc, although Combat Stims kept him in the game for another turn.


Cassian Andor did take quite a hit early on, but the medical droid kept him in the game.


On turn 6 I suggested to Victoria that she could force a draw if she hid behind and touching the hill with her remaining leader from a Stormtrooper unit.


At the end of the game the Imperials had lost many more troops than the Rebel Alliance, but with three objectives each it would be a draw.


We hope to play again this weekend.

  1. Great looking game. Atleast a draw is better than a defeat

  5. A draw is good and allows you to declare a partial victory. As Aly, suggests, it may not last!
