Star Wars: Legion - Core Set (Miniatures)
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!
Star Wars: Legion 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.

Lourens J on (Verified Buyer)Reviewed by
Compared to other miniature game starter sets, you really get your money's worth with this one. If you try to buy all the components included in the set individually, it will cost more than double the core set would (and you can't buy Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader separately).
Note that all the units contained in the core set is not enough for a full 800 point game of SW Legion but this is still a great product to get your collection started. I highly recommend buying two core sets which can bring you to the 800 point mark.
The miniatures are highly detailed and unpainted. There was one minor component missing from both core sets that I purchased (the right handlebar of the AT-RT was missing) but I followed the simple process of requesting the missing components from Asmodee and in less than a week my request was processed and the components were packed and sent by mail.
Also note the core set does not have enough dice. Although you can record your results and reroll the dice provided in the set, this gets frustrating very quickly and you will want to get additional dice through either the dice pack or another core set (as recommended above).
