Star Wars: Legion - Unboxing

I have been keeping my eye on the news around Star Wars: Legion for some time now, and when release day finally rocked around you can bet I was there to grab my copy!

I've been a huge Star Wars fan since I was a kid (before it got 'big'!) I do play X-Wing occasionally, but seeing my favourite franchise immortalised in 28mm miniatures is the game system i've been waiting for!

The look and feel of the components, and the game mechanic if the YouTube videos are anything to go by, are familiar in the style of Fantasy Flight Games. As an Infinity gamer also, the tokens especially appeal to me!

The contents are substantial with over 30 mini's and over 100 tokens, so it should keep me busy for a while.

You get everything you need in the core set; dice bases and the familiar upgrade and unit cards (familiar if you play X-Wing!)

The models themselves are neatly packaged in two's which is nice as the arms wont get mixed up!

The quality of the models seems good, cast in plastic with nice crisp detail.

Also included are 2 speeder bikes for the Imperials and an AT-RT which don't appear to require much assembly.

Finally there is a bag of barricades for terrain made of the same plastic as the minis.

I'm pleased with what I've seen in the core set so far, and I'm sure i'll be busy assembling the models tonight!! I've had a quick flick through the rules and they seem simple enough - just need to rope Mrs GunGrave into a test game!

More Soon!
