Ah, playtesting has begun at last! If you are interested in how things are progressing, and seeing how the rules work, please go to my blog at this link


I hope you find it interesting!

Don't forget the +3 die modifier for "named characters and heroes" to be consistent with current canon. Not to mention an automatic +3 modifier for all…. er….

As in I Assault, heroes cannot 'Die' but are disabled. However, the stats I give heroes make them VERY hard to kill without a massive outnumber…or a Sith!
Incidentally, I have made, in parallel, an 'Imperial' edition of the rules so you can run the 'Bucket Heads' against the Rebel scum!

Lol. Heroes can't die? What's the fun in that?

Hi CC, I have put a caveat in the rules that allows 'Heroes' to die if the scenario allows!- I do feel its only fair for players to not make Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Chewbacca any more vulnerable than in the films. Being disabled is a good equivalent to death for games, the character can come back next game after 'Recovering'!!!

These look very interesting! It could save me a lot of money. I have boxes of WOC figures as well as Imperial Assault figures. I could skip Star Wars: Legion, particularly as it is unlikely to be solo friendly.


PS Love your X-wing and WoW rules

Thanks Jim, I am hopeful that after the coming Saturday playtest with my friends, I may be confident enough to release them to a wider audience!

I think it will produce a playable game with relatively few figures, its definitely not going to be suitable for much larger than platoon sized actions.

That sounds like the sweet spot. A few lead up games with a squad or two leading up to a climactic 40 or so a side final battle.

Can't wait!
