    [Initial rant]

    How bad can you be with your own homepage? AMG: Yes! AAARGH

    [/rant]

    So on the 22nd June they posted the date for the event on facepage. On the 25th they published the time table/running order on facepage. Only at the 26th they put it up on their homepage and *only* in the transmission section. If you go to their homepage and navigate the menu “events” – “ministravaganza” you’ll get the 2023 event.

    AMG is terrible at this. Anyhow, here is what they have planned:

    Love these companies that can’t even get simple stuff right. Right?

    Is Legion dead? Shatterpoint kills it? I have a whole pile of painted Legion I’ll just bin then. Who cares, right?

    Marvel. It’s a … Marvel? Smash.

    So are they our aren’t they announcing the legion fire sale?

    You’d think that work so much focus on shatter point they would.

    I think it is close as it sounds like they are scraping the bottom of the barrel in a desperate attempt to find something useful to add to the game.

    Maybe rebels are coming to legion too?

    I don’t know what the Star Wars license looks like for AMG but it could be a serious problem for them. If they only have access to the movies and cartoons in the license they are just about out of stuff to make for Legion. Wizards of the Coast had the license in the 2000s but their license covered all Star Wars content so they used movies, shows, comics, novels, and video games to generate characters and units for their game. If AMG’s license covers the same they should be able to generate a lot of new miniatures for Legion.

    What’s not helping is the new starwars content has been pretty bad (Andor being the one exception).
    None of it allows for big battles in space or on the ground. Rogue One being the only exception, but as that is technically part of the original trilogy within the timeline it didn’t add a lot of new content.

    One really has to wonder how Legion is going to stay alive with so much more potential content still to be done for Crisis Protocol.

    Legion fire sale confirmed

    Maybe @avernos

    But then again there was an interview with Asmodee Germany and they said:

    Die Zukunft von Legion: für Asmodee ist Legion das Warhammer 40K. Es ist ganz klar der unangefochtene Fokus wenn es um Tabletops geht. Vor Shatterpoint, vor A Song of Ice and Fire. Asmodee ist sich über die Zugkraft der IP im Klaren und versucht alles das Spiel weiter voran zu bringen. Es gibt keine Pläne dieses Spiel aufzugeben!!!

    Translation:

    The future of Legion: for Asmodee, Legion is the Warhammer 40K. It is clearly the undisputed focus when it comes to tabletops. Before Shatterpoint, before A Song of Ice and Fire. Asmodee realises the traction of the IP and is doing everything it can to push the game forward. There are no plans to abandon this game!!!

    Obviously that’s just the German branch. AMG still is at the helm of all of it. We’ll see.

    This is the same German branch that had to read about changes in the news before their owners informed them …

    As such I wouldn’t put too much faith in their information as they might be lagging behind.

    I’d argue that Legion could do with a refresh regarding its starter armies.

    I kind of suspect that they were hoping that the Rey-trilogy would add a new era and new starter sets, but that hasn’t happened.
    Either that’s because of “the event (stay indoors!)(tm)” or because until now Shatterpoint got the resources and Legion was left picking up the pieces.

    Surely something would have been leaked by now if there would be something coming for Legion, right ?

     

    hmmm possible news :
