Warfare is an inescapable part of the Star Wars universe, from the Rebel Alliance’s defeat in the Battle of Hoth to a few elite Rebel strike teams taking on a legion of stormtroopers on the Forest Moon of Endor. You can seize your chance to get your boots on the ground and lead your troops to victory with Star Wars™: Legion, a miniatures game of thrilling infantry battles in the Star Wars universe!

The Star Wars Legion Game invites you to enter the ground battles of the Galactic Civil War as the commander of a unique army of miniatures filled with troopers, powerful ground or repulsor vehicles, and iconic characters like Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. While innovative mechanics for command and control simulate the fog of war and the chaos of battle, the game’s unpainted, easily assembled minis give you a canvas to create the Star Wars army you’ve always wanted to lead into battle—whether you fight for the monolithic, oppressive Galactic Empire or the ragtag Rebel Alliance.

The Galactic Civil War has erupted into pitched battle on a thousand planets of the galaxy. Rebel cells sabotage Imperial operations, while the Galactic Empire brings the full force of its military machine to bear against the Rebel Alliance. New heroes and generals are forged in the fires of war every day—and you can join their ranks. 

If you’ve ever wanted to scramble for cover with a squad of Rebel Troopers or command the battle from inside an AT-ST walker, Star Wars: Legion offers you the chance to enter the infantry battles of the Star Wars saga and flex your military acumen. In every game, you will issue your orders and navigate the chaos of battle. You’ll impose your commands on the unfolding conflict. And you will lead your forces through the battle, strategically maneuvering and launching cunning attacks. Take command of the Galactic Civil War with this base game, and plenty of optional units to increase you army size or provide different tactical options. 

Legion uses a challenging command system, which aptly simulates the fog of war and chaos of battle. Rather than having perfect, granular control over your entire army, you’ll need to deliver your orders carefully and strategically. Mastering the commands of Star Wars: Legion is just one of the key things that separates seasoned generals from the rank-and-file.

Your infantry may not move as quickly as speeding starfighters, but keeping your forces mobile is a crucial part of every game of Star Wars: Legion. You’ll need to capture objectives, take cover from incoming enemy fire, or maneuver to catch your opponent in a devastating crossfire. No matter what units make up your army or what objectives you’re pursuing, movement and combat are the two most important parts of the Star Wars Legion Game.

Before you can start running across the battlefield and firing your blaster or igniting your lightsaber, you and your opponent will need to define your objectives, deployment zones, and the conditions of the battle. You and your opponent compete to establish the battlefield before your armies ever fire a shot. With a wide range of objective, deployment, and condition cards, every game of Star Wars: Legion is guaranteed to offer a completely different experience.

Whilst the game can be played straight out of the box there is also an optional hobby side of the game! A fully painted army of miniatures is one of the most thrilling sights in gaming, and even if you don’t have a history with miniatures painting, it’s easy to get started. 

Untold thousands of white-armoured Stormtroopers. Rebels drawn from a hundred worlds, each with a reason to hate the Empire and its tyranny. From the rumbling stomp of an AT-RT walker, to the concussive explosions of grenades and laser fire, to the mechanical breathing of Darth Vader, Star Wars: Legion takes you into the pitched infantry battles of the Galactic Civil War!

Game Type

Star Wars: Legion is a tabletop miniatures game.  It can be played out of the box on a table or other flat area, but part of the fun is painting your miniatures, and creating terrain to add a realistic look and feel.  Game mats are also available separately to provide a detailed surface to play on, or you can create your own using various materials available from hobbyshops.  Perhaps a plain green felt mat for grassy planets or white felt for a snowy planet surface.  If you have a 3D printer there are even various buildings and accessories available online that you can print and paint!

Here goes nothing...
16 February 2022  | 

Bought my second Original Trilogy Core Set from Dark Star (wish I'd bought the first here) to expand upon my collection, and I'm glad I did.
As a long-time jaded 40k player, making the switch to Legion was the best hobby move I've made in years - the rules are quick to learn and play fast, there's no requirement to buy half a library of additional books to play your chosen force (all you need is on the cards), and the miniatures are great (although could do with more variety). My only issue is that the vehicles come part-assembled, and I'd prefer to build them as kits, but as it's a starter set I can see why this is evident.
All in all, a great introduction to Star Wars tabletop gaming.

Excellent Product
22 December 2020  | 

This is a great product, a friend persuaded me to get into this game and recommend this product. It is excellent value for money. If there was 4 1/2 * option I would give that as some models need a reasonable amount of cleaning up before priming so that is just worth bearing in mind. But the value for money this set provides is amazing

Great game (and hobby too)
01 April 2020  | 

Was pleased on opening this to find the minis and components were all of good quality. The game rules are nice and simple but there's plenty of room for strategy. This box is great value for money, though you will eventually want more than just this core set of units.

You can be as thorough (or not) as you like in painting up the models, but it's great seeing your own lovingly crafted Luke/Vader hit the table.
