"Star Wars™: Legion is more than a miniatures game—it's your gateway into the Star Wars galaxy. Through the medium of the cards, tokens, and miniatures on the battlefield that you create, you're challenged to become the commander of an army at the height of the Galactic Civil War. You'll lead your soldiers forward in countless unique battles, maneuvering your troops and delivering your orders to the best of your abilities.

In our last previews for Star Wars: Legion, we've already looked at the command system you'll use to issue orders, as well as the game's movement and combat. Still, every battle begins before you give your first orders. In your games of Star Wars: Legion, even defining the battlefield is a tactical struggle of wits between you and your opponent… and that's the focus of our preview today!"

I don't like the fact that this game will be in an incompatible figure scale. Could you use your existing figures. Not sure, because you'll need all the characteristics and unit cards, which you won't be able to get without IP theft. I have a lot of Star Wars Miniatures figures that I use for games, and am content with those. I also don't want to get caught in the endless expansion cycle.

Having said that, FFG have very interesting game design ideas. The method of setting of the scenario is quite clever. Like the scout phase in Chain of Command, I wish I had come up with it myself. I also like the way they use special dice to elegantly handle complexity.

The battlefield setup procedure is interesting and I'm waiting to see it in practice. At least it won't be an unending series of battles on clear, bright days …
