New Game: Star Wars Legion

It's finally here, Star Wars Legion.  I picked this up on release day (March 22) from Game Depot.  I purchased the starter set, the T-47 Airspeeder Unit Expansion as well as the AT-ST Unit Expansion.  The game looks amazing and I can't wait to get in my first games with it.

So far I have been able to get the AT-ST assembled, and all the Empire models including Darth Vader.  I got Luke assembled, and will work on the rebels today and tomorrow.

The AT-ST is huge compared to the other models, but it is a lot better for scale then Fantasy Flights other game Imperial Assault.  I also have the starter set for that game as well, and a bunch of th expansion models.  Not sure how much Imperial Assault gaming I will be getting in now that Legion has been released, but we will see.

Until next time, play more games, and try to have fun.  Its only a game.

Hordes: Legion of Everblight - Hellmouth (and other purchases)

Okay, yes, its been awhile, sorry.

Life has been really busy, but and I will try to post more.  Yes, I know, you have heard that before too, lol.

So, I really love my Legion of Everblight army.  This was my first army for Hordes, and I will always play them.  I know I have started other armies, but they will always be my go to fun army.  So, I decided I needed to expand on the models that I currently have.  So I did some researching on what others play, most popular units, solos, beasts, etc.  And then I decided, to hell with that, I want to play what I think would be fun, rather that play what other people are doing.

I have not been to Imperial Outpost for a long time, and knowing that they always have a huge stock of Warmachines and Hordes, I made the long haul trip all the way across the Valley Of The Sun to visit them.

Below is a picture of what I picked up that day.

List of what I purchased:

  • Carnivean - Ravagore - Scythean Box
    • Going to build the Scythean
  • Hellmouth
  • Strider Deathstalker
  • Fyanna The Lash
  • Thagrosh, Prophet of Everblight (Thagrosh 1)
  • The Forsaken (not pictured above)

I still want to pickup a second Hellmouth unit, and another Deathstalker, and probably a second Forsaken as well.

So, for this post, I will be focusing on the Hellmouth unit, as this is the first of the above that I completed.

The unit went together rather well, and the models were very well designed/made.  I love the way they look and could not wait to finish painting them.

As far as rules go, this unit has to be one of the most scariest units that Everblight has in its arsenal.  I love the fact that every turn you can bring back one of the Tendrils that was lost in previous turns to a max of three on the table at one time, and when you bring them in you can place them anywhere in formation of the Maw, which has a command radius of 8 inches.  The other scary and cool rule they have is the Impervious Flesh rule.  So when they are hit, the Maw or Tendrils get one less dice when trying to wound them, which make their surviveability very high.

I can't wait to get these guys on the table to enact some carnage, lol.

Below is a picture of the finished unit, all painted and based.

Until next time, keep gaming and having fun.

DIY Terrain: Making a Bridge to go over my River sectons

Awhile back I made River sections for my War-gaming table(s), so I decided I needed a bridge.  So off to my local Dollar Tree I went in search of some cheap foam board and other terrain materials.  I love the dollar tree foam, it very easy to work with, of course its cheap.

So, I wanted my bridge to be made out of Stone and Wood.  So I decided that each of the sides would be a stone step structure, with a wooden platform to go across the water.

I started out with just cardboard I cut out of a cardboard box, then cut out sections and hot-glued them together to make a stair effect.


For each stair I used strips of the foam board cut out into small sections, I then used a pen to gouge into the surface of the foam board sections to make the individual bricks.  To get this desired effect, you first have to remove one of the paper backing on the foam board.  The Dollar Tree foam board works great for this, because its cheap, the backing paper comes right off with ease, without having to wet the board, etc.  I got this tip from DM Scotty and his YouTube channel theDMsCraft.


The Wooden bridge section, I used "skinny Sticks" which I picked up from Wal-Mart, I think they sell for right around a $1 or so, maybe less for a pack of 75 sticks.  In the package they are 5.75" x 0.25", and work great for making a variety of crafting projects.

I really wish I took staging pictures of each step better, the ones about I made up after the project was compete, lol.

So here is the finished project:

Designed the bridge to insert into the foam for easier storage.

Assembled and placed over one of the River sections
I really like how this ended up, and look forward to using it on the table.  I placed a couple of Cryx models from Warmachine to show a scale for the models.  I think this can be used in a variety of different games.

Let me know what you think, and if you have any other ideas for terrain making.  Until next time, keep gaming, and keep crafting.  Both are a blast.

Terrain Build - Wooden Fences

Got a little bored today, and just was not in the mood to paint of build models.  So I decided to make terrain instead.

So, these are two of the fence sections that are complete, I have four more, one will include a gate.

I also started working on some buildings, and will eventually post about those as well.

Until next time, keep on gaming and having fun.
