STAR WARS LEGION – BATTLE REPORT: LOOK, SIR – DROIDS!

This is something new here, but we are trying the new Skirmish game mode any playing doing a battle report based. What Justin (Galactic Empire) and myself (Separatist Alliance) did was write down our thoughts at the beginning of each of the 5 rounds. Below you will find the army builds for each of us, the scenario we played and some pictures as we played. Note: I do have an extra droid in each of my armies as I didn’t realize that the 7th droid is an extra 6 points. With this in mind is would be playing 518 points.

SCENARIO


Turn 1

Start of Turn 1

JUSTIN

Not knowing where the droids were going I wanted to ensure I had as many orders issued without negative repercussions so I could move them out fast. The Droidekas and Grevious are the things I need to avoid or focus on, splitting between the two will just get me killed.

Command Card : Assualt

SCOTT

My main goal is to get troops close to objectives and sit on them. I want to get the 3 main groups up the middle, with one of them moving up to take the top Right (in the building and hard to see in this picture) objective as they go. I will use the Droidekas to provide supportfor that group. The 4th group i’m going to run along the bottom for the bottom left objective using General Grievous to scare anyone away / support

Command Card : Push


Turn 2

Start of Turn 2

JUSTIN

Grievous is moving towards the right flank, I’ll focus there; If I delay Vader until after Grievous using Implacable I can get the double activation without having to worry about the Jedi Hunter ability for a turn.

Command Card : Implacable

SCOTT

STAY ON TARGET! Lets get in with General Grievous, I want him to be the one to bring the pain. Push forward and hold with everything else! The extra suppress counters from the Droidekas is starting to hurt his action economy!

Command Card : Ambush

Casualties so far : 2


Turn 3

JUSTIN

If I can go first and give Vader the activation I can attempt to take Grievous out and be in a better position. The Sheer number of dice thrown my way by the droids are cutting down units but without Grievous I can then focus on the Droidekas.

Command Card : Ambush

SCOTT

Not so Roger Roger. Using the command card to hit Vader and run, he is slow so only his Saber throw should be in range. Everything else fire for effect as best you can!

Command Card : Trained In The Jedi Arts

Casualties so far : 14

End of Turn 3

Turn 4

JUSTIN

If I can go first and give Vader the activation I can attempt to take Grevious out and be in a better position. The Sheer number of dice thrown my way by the droids are cutting down units but without Grevious I can then focus on the Droidekkas.

Command Card : Master of Evil

SCOTT

So no plan survives first contact with the enemy. Grievous is really hurt, with 1 health left. Vader did a number on him. Using the command card to hit and run, this

Command Card : Supreme Commander

Casualties so far : 12


Turn 5

Mid Turn 5

JUSTIN

Supreme Commander ensured Grievous still lives, I need to kill him this turn. Last turn so I’m going to Clamber over the terrain to try and take a single objective.

SCOTT

HOLD FOR YOUR ****ING LIFE! Put think we might have too much suppression.

Command Card : Crush Them

Casualties so far : 22


FINAL SCORE

JUSTIN : 2 Points

SCOTT: 2 Points

Tie Breaker: Justin killed more units


WINNER: GALACTIC EMPIRE

Galactic Empire Bar

Hard fought, and really lost due to the suppression and a few wrong choices in the mid game (should have continued to push for the top right objective). Learned a lot about the game and look forward to my next battle!
