Nice enough. But the two most significant battles in the original trilogy have STILL not been fully covered: We have Hoth Stormtroopers, Hoth Stormtroopers with laser cannon, Hoth Rebels with their heavy weapon, a snowspeeder and a Hoth battle mat but no Hoth Rebel soldiers.

As regards the Battle of Endor we have every troop type EXCEPT the most important one who turned the tide against the Empire…the Ewoks.

Instead we get a box of the Emperor's Royal Guard and a box of wookies. (Which could have waited until the Clone Wars stuff came out)

And how about some more main characters?

I could see Ewoks being a problem. I mean if they try to realistically fit them into a ground skirmish game they'll have to come to the realization that unless they make them absurdly more capable than they could possibly be they won't be a competitive force.

It's a Star Wars miniatures game. It's not beyond the designers ken to come up with ewok rules. They are essentially dwarf commandos utilising stealth and ambush. The fact of the matter is that if you are going to bring out a star wars miniatures game you can't just ignore important characters and species because some people don't like them.

And I'd say being instrumental in the defeat of the galactic empire makes them a competitive force.

Haven't played Legion.

Can it handle swarm armies?
