Star Wars Legion

One of the reasons that I haven't been posting much lately is that I have a serious case of the gamer blahs.  Star Wars Armada season is over.  Runewars isn't really catching on in my area.  40k has had a major resurgence, but it still feel like the same game with the same problems.  I can't ally anyone with my Necrons or Tau and hate that alpha strikes are still everywhere.  I've lost full units in every game I've played before being able to activate them.  That should never happen.

Right now, I feel like I'm in a holding pattern.  But...

There is light at the end of the tunnel.  That light is called Legion.

This game is basically the result of Warhammer 40k amd SW Armada making a beautiful baby wearing a Stormtrooper helmet.  I'm super excited.  The models look amazing.  The gameplay looks amazing.  Everything about this looks amazing.  It's what I've always wanted.

We will, of course, have epic showdowns between iconic heroes and villains.

Unlike 40k, Legion will have unit and upgrade cards as well as special dice, just like in X-Wing and Armada.

Can't wait.  The only bad thing about this game is that it's not out yet.
