A Newbie’s Guide to Star Wars Legion

A Newbie’s Guide to Star Wars Legion

Hello, young Padawan! So, you’ve just gotten your hands on a shiny new Star Wars Legion core set, and you’re probably thinking, “What on Tatooine do I do now?” Well, fear not, young Padawan, because we’re about to embark on an epic journey together. Buckle up, and may the Force be with you!

Step 1: Assemble Your Troops

First things first, you’re going to need a squad. Whether you’re commanding the B2 Battle Droids or the Clone Wars Phase 2 Clone Troopers, you’ll need to assemble and paint your miniatures. Remember, these miniatures are supplied unassembled and unpainted, so you’ll get to add your personal touch to each one.

Step 2: Choose Your Faction

Are you more of a Rebels or a Galactic Empire kind of player? Or perhaps the Shadow Collective are more your style? Whichever faction you choose, make sure to build a roster of your favorite Star Wars characters to create your very own dream team.

Step 3: Learn the Rules

Once you’ve chosen your faction and assembled your troops, it’s time to learn the rules. Whether you’re piloting a T-47 Airspeeder or commanding a squad of Clone Commandos, you’ll need to understand how each unit operates on the battlefield. Play the core game at least 4-5 times to get a feel for how the game plays and how your models play. This will be very helpful in getting comfortable with the game.

Step 4: Before You Buy More Models....

Before you go all in and start buying every expansion pack in sight, make sure you actually enjoy the game. I know, I know, it’s Star Wars, what’s not to love, right? But trust me, play the core game at least 4-5 times, get a feel for the rules, and mechanics before you decide to expand your galaxy.

Step 5: Join the Community

There’s a whole community of Star Wars Legion players out there, just waiting to welcome you with open arms. Joining the community is a great way to learn more about the game, ask questions, and meet like-minded people. It’s like having your very own Rebel Alliance (or Galactic Empire, if that’s more your style).
