Star wars legion : clone wars

War has engulfed the galaxy. The vast forces of the Separatist Alliance, bolstered by seemingly endless ranks of battle droids, have pushed the Galactic Republic to the brink of dissolution and defeat. The Republic’s only hope is its army of elite clone troopers, led into battle by noble, Force-wielding Jedi Knights. The war between them is an epic struggle where every battle could turn the tide and change the fate of the galaxy.

Everything you need to play star wars legion


 For the Republic, the core set includes two squadrons of Phase I Clone Troopers, a fast-moving BARC speeder (with optional sidecar), and Obi-Wan Kenobi se. For the Separatists, two units of B1 Battle Droids, two spinning Droidekas (in both wheel and active mode), and General Grievous.

Along with these core units, each player can upgrade their troops with cards that include some tactics and gear, as well as extra miniatures. This is, perhaps, one of the most interesting aspects of the game. Each army is built using a classic point system. A core unit of Clone Troopers will consist of four miniatures. But for more points, you can add another base unit, or even another model with heavy weaponry. This creates a level of customization that you can actively see reflected on the board.

Inside the box you will also find 8 plastic barricades.

The rule book

The starter set contains a soft cover rulebook which contains all the rules you need to play, as well as a construction and painting guide. The rules are laid out in a clear and very legible format, with many picture guides demonstrating the rules.

Summery: Star Wars Legion , The Clone Wars is the perfect starting point for anyone considering getting into table top wargames with a Star Wars flavour.
