This article takes a look at the surprise (but not unwelcome) points re-balance and errata that was announced this past week and will be hitting in mid-September.
Boy, we are really hurting for relevant things to talk about lately, huh?
Unless you have been living in a Bantha cave for the last two weeks, you know that Legion is undergoing a points re-balance and errata. There were several changes to competitively relevant units (ahem, strike teams) and some nice points drops on other units and upgrades that were not seeing much competitive play.
A few notes from FFG about how this is going to work for Legion: the re-balance was in two components, errata and points updates. The former will be for all play modes and will be reflected and printed on future cards; the latter is specifically for tournament play and is published in the back of the RRG (of course players are welcome to use them for their own local games if they wish).
Since points re-balance is primarily for tournament play, this article will focus on the (new) competitiveness of the affected units, as well as how some of the changes effect units that weren’t directly changed.

Our good buddies over at The Fifth Trooper Network posted up some awesome videos from this past weekend at GenCon:
They guys over on The Fifth Trooper podcast sat down with Fantasy Flight’s Sculpting Manager for Star Wars Legion, Derrick Fuchs.

Remember back in the beginning of Star Wars Legion play when every game had armor in it? Whether you were running the AT-ST, a couple of AT-RTs or the T47, it seemed like we all had armor at one point in our lists and we were having a blast. It was fun because it was thematic, it was also nostalgic and throwing up to 14 dice at another unit is amazing (thanks to Weiss’ giving you arsenal 4). Then the meta shifted and all of us “meta philosophers” told you the age of armor was over and so we (for the most part) moved on.

If you have listened to our podcast The Fifth Trooper or our sister cast Notorious Scoundrels, you know that since January I have been running a 12-activation list that I loved. It didn’t have any heroes; it didn’t have any truly costly units; it was just a wall of units coming down at you (if you haven’t heard of it or need a refresher it is to the right).
I loved this list for several reasons:
Character art done by me! Graphic art done by Jay!

It seems that the old saying “Life imitates art” may just be true. As the Clone Wars reach our shores so may the Trade Federation. What in the blue milk am I talking about?
In a capital not so far away there has been a trade dispute occurring with another land. The dispute has led to increased tariffs on goods from this land by 25%. Now for the most part this has not included goods such as board games and has been more focused on electronics, batteries, auto parts etc. But there has been a list prepared by the US Trade Reps that includes board games as a potential product to incur the 25% tariff.
