The Star Wars community all give a collective sigh of relief when two days ago Luke Eddy updated his job status on Facebook as a new employ at Atomic Mass Games (AMG).
Earlier last month Asmodee announced that they were moving all Star Wars miniatures games from Fantasy Flight Games to AMG and fired Star Wars Legion lead designer, Alex Devy. It was also reported that Star Wars Legion lead designer would be given the opportunity to apply for a position at AMG.
Eddy stated in the comments of his post that will be moving to Washington later next year.
I did a quick write-up of things I found interesting during today’s FFG Live: Ask Me Anything with Alex and Luke:
-The Clone Wars Core Set will release worldwide on Oct 18th
-The Card Packs will release on Oct. 18th
-No release date for Dewbacks but will release ASAP
-More Competitive Battle Cards will be added to the game “Sooner than later”
-We may eventually get custom commanders
-We will see more cross faction units
-We will most likely see Commander Coby and all “popular characters” added to the game; at least that’s the goal
-Phase 1 Clone Troopers feature the furthest they could push PVC plastic. Phase 2 Clone Troopers will be hard plastic, but will not be as customizable as the Phase 1s, but as Legion continues to grow with hard plastic there will be some “really cool figures in the near future” and you’ll be able to “customize them in a lot of cool ways”
-They are moving away from 1 for 1 releases and moving towards more thematic releases, e.i. themes build on movies, TV shows, certain battles, locations, different media, fridge elements that don’t fit anywhere else
-They will consider all possible factions including Scum and Villainy. They hinted that The Mandalorian could help flesh that faction out
-Subfactions are still on the table, but it sounds like the game needs to grow more to warrant them Continue reading →
While being interviewed on The Fifth Trooper podcast, Luke Eddy mentioned that his current favorite list included a yet-to-be-announced Imperial Corp unit.

There has been some speculation going around whether Bossk is valued at 85, 115, or 135. If you put your money on 115 you win the pot. Luke Eddy confirmed today that Bossk is indeed 115 pts.
Also while on The Fifth Trooper and Notorious Scoundrels podcasts Eddy stated that his favorite list so far to play test was Krennic, 1x Death Troopers, 3x E-Webs and 6x yet to be announced corps units.
Pretty exciting stuff! My money is on the long fan requested Shore Troopers. But only time will tell.
I had the pleasure of meeting Eddy during LVO and I can confirm that he truly loves this game, and is a great, stand up gentleman.
