Thinking of getting into some solo Star Wars gaming and wondering if anyone has any experience in either set?

Which set would lend itself a little better for larger games?

I was hoping to do some Hoth gaming…couple AT-AT's and 100+ troops on both sides.

SWMB won't work with that large of a game. Neither will Legion. Use Galactic Heroes Big Battles by Jay Wiley. I have also used Fubra to fight Clone Wars games with 200 infantry and 30+ vehicles.

I don't see anything on his site for a Star Wars conversion. Is this something he's working on?

Legion's a good system, but you'd need to do some adaptation, like having each squad shoot as if it was a single figure, activation by platoons, etc. Of course, then you'd be playing Legion with each figure replaced with multiple figures …

In his Galactic Heroes Codex he has Star War, 40k and other stuff rated up. He also has several battle reports for Star Wars on his blog. Just click on his blog link at Wiley Games website. Or Google Wiley Games Star Wars battle report.
