Bothan Report: Creating Scarif Bases for your Legion Units

One of the most exciting parts of painting miniatures for me is creating a compelling base for the miniatures that really puts the icing on the proverbial cake when it comes to presentation.

Bothan Report: Director Orson Krennic Commander Expansion

One of the most exciting aspects of Rogue One was the introduction of a new villain to grace the screen alongside established characters like Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin.

As far as Star Wars Legion goes I am doubly excited to get a commander on my table that isn’t names , Darth Vader, Palpatine or Veers.

Krennic just looks bad ass and his white cloak and uniform is very striking for an Imperial Commander. Throw in some Death Troopers alongside him and you have a very intimidating new addition to your Imperial Army in Star Wars Legion.

Dwayne Morash has another awesome battle report posted over at

“Welcome back to another Bothan Report. This will be another multi part series detailing the events of a team of Rebels freeing some Wookie slaves from the Spice Mines of Kessel while the Imperials have arrived to stop them from getting away.

No mission objectives were selected this match. It was a straight up elimination game with the winner at the end of round 7 being the player who has the most points in Units left on the table. I am playing the Rebels and my friend Kyle is playing the Imperials.”
