Both 3×3 mats present gamers with a cinematic backdrop for their Star Wars conflicts. The Desert Ruins sees you fighting over the half-buried remains of a Republic structure.
While the Desert Junkyard mat lets you struggle to regain some all-important tech.
The Junkyard map particularly catches my eye, largely due to the AT-AT footprints in the sand. It’s an evocative image, that shows you this is Star Wars.
Both mats can be combined well to give you a full 6×3 gaming space. It would be cool to see how well they work with terrain.
Star Wars: Legion Terrain
Talking about terrain, the folks at Fantasy Flight Games have also shown off some of the kits they’re adding to the mix.
For example, you have the Priority Supplies pack above which includes a whole bunch of additional terrain pieces AND you get scenario cards that go with it for setting up a proper engagement. This can be combined with the Barricade Pack which adds in more defensive positions on the tabletop.
You get a handful of those barricades in the original Core Set for the game but this takes things up a notch if you want to provide yourself with a more cover-heavy battlefield.
Do you plan to venture to this planet in a galaxy far, far away?
