Fantasy Flight Take Star Wars: Legion To The Desert On New Gamemats

March 16, 2018 by dracs

Fantasy Flight Games are heading to the Desert for Star Wars: Legion with two new gamemats up for pre-order.

Desert Battlefield

Both 3x3 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 6x3 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.

Star Wars Legion Priority Supplies - FFG

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?
