But wait! Some great guys decided to host a Star Wars: Legion tournament to try and entice FFG into officially sponsoring an event in the future, and they needed a few more players to max their attendance. Not only did they offer discounted admission, but also gave me a box of troops to help me begin my collection! I had only played a few games and was able to convince my friend Reno to get me up to speed and ride along with me as well, while Dave offered to loan me an army. I asked my good friend Eric, who just qualified for Worlds at Adoption, to help me throw together a simple list and he came up with this:
In the first round I played a really nice guy named Bret who helped me out quite a bit since I'm still a total noob at this game. He had an Imperial list with Krennic, Veers, and a whole bunch of mixed troopers. We played Breakthrough, Major Offensive, Rapid Reinforcements.
|Stormtroopers move to put fire onto some Deathtroopers.|
Round two had me up against Nick and another Imperial list, this time with Veers, two Occupier Assault Tanks, and a bunch of Stormtroopers. We played Key Positions, Long March, Rapid Reinforcements.
|My AT-ST moved to engage one of the tanks, but both of them got into range and overwhelmed it.|
|Both Occupier tanks close on my Stormtroopers.|
The third round was Brett and a Rebel force with a generic commander, two landspeeders, and a bunch of troopers. We played Key Positions, Battle Lines, and Clear Conditions.
|I sent a squad of Stormtroopers through the turbolaser control room to harass some snipers and in the process kept two squads of Rebel troops occupied as well.|
|Lord Vader held down one of the objectives and was able to take out one of the land speeders as well, while threatening some more Rebel scum.|
|I sent my AT-ST to support several Stormtrooper squads and it was able to shoot down the second land speeder, while the troopers fought back a squad of Wookies and claimed two objectives.|
