Fantasy Flight Games just released a Twitter photo showing the differences in size between the Star Wars: Legion's AT-ST and Imperial Assault's AT-ST – the results are quite telling….

Yup! And that's why I won't be buying Legion.

Have to agree with Tommy. I find the Imperial Assault one plenty big enough for me. Hopefully the actual figures won't be this huge in comparison

Well it certainly is more to scale/proportion than the Assault one

Without a clue to actual dimensions I can't tell if one is oversized or the other undersized.

A 28mmm figure next to them would be a big help in telling their size.

That would explain the price.

I wonder if the Legion ATST might actually be closer to the correct scale for IA than the IA ATST-which I seem to recall being in a noticeably smaller scale than the other characters. We would need a comparison with a normal IA and Legion figures though to be sure.

Kinda funny considering the whole IA-Legion scale creep controversy if that's the case.

It's not scale creep at all. It's a completely different scale.

Perspective in the new Twitter post is difficult to judge (it appears to be a Photoshop composite), but you can make your own judgement on whether the AT-ST scaled up exactly the same as the scale-up of the stormtroopers or a little more.

I was disappointed but the larger figures because I was hoping to see large battles, not just more skirmishes.

I have the IA AT-ST and it's plenty big next to my 28mm minis. Going much bigger than that is kind of ridiculous.

Beyond the physical scale difference of the miniature figures, what is the difference between the two games? Is IA a skirmish level game and Legion more battalion level?

You need to collect different sets of cardboard play-aids and cards to play each game……….

I only hope the company doesn't forget Imperial Assault releases with all this oversized Legion stuff!
