So I know there are a lot of excited gamers for this one! Product will be available for sale Thursday March 22nd on release day after 4 p.m. There are several us planning on being there all evening, building, priming, painting, and playing! Please feel free to join us!

All weekend long we plan on playing the game, and working on painting and other parts of the hobby. I look forward to some community discussion on terrain projects and what not to really help make this game work. I'd be willing to have the shop fund any terrain projects for shop terrain anyone is interested in undertaking.

We have the FFG sponsored launch event that will happen Saturday afternoon starting at 1 p.m. This will support up to 10 players. Don't have the details yet on what's in the OP kit, but imagine it's standard FFG type stuff.

Feel free to stop in at anytime all weekend long to get going on Legion!

Just to clear up any confusion, we're having an all weekend long participation event and raffle for this game's launch.

Since we can't play until we have our models, the participation discount will be rewarded ahead of time for everyone as long as you pay the $5 entrance fee for participation weekend and show up and play at some point during the weekend. I've got no problem taking this in good faith from our group of players! Legion gonna be awesome!

So festivities for this weekend will be broken down into 3 categories, which can happen all weekend long, starting immediately and ending Sunday at 7 p.m. We will be tallying points for the Rebels and Imperials to determine who controls the shop bragging rights moving forward. The winning sides poster will be displayed prominently in the shop so that everyone knows if the shop is a Rebel Base or an Imperial Outpost.

1. Build and Play! As simple as it sounds. Get at least your starter set models built, and play the demo scenario. (I have this set up at the shop, 3 demo's already today!) It'll be there all weekend long. Everyone who completes this will get one ticket in the build and play raffle, can only get this once. Also, we will tally which side wins each demo game, and each win will score a point for that team.

2. Challenge Duels! These are small scenarios (like 2 units each, or a hero and a unit) where they pick the exact units and upgrades for you to take. Designed to encourage learning the game combos and what not. I think their pretty cool for "new to gaming folks", but wanted to expand on this for veteran gamers. So we will also include any half sized 400 point games or normal sized 800 point games into this. Each participant will get one ticket into the raffle for each game they play (win or lose), and can get a max of 3 tickets for the weekend for playing games. We'll draw 2 winners for this raffle. Each win scores a point for winning side, 2 points if it's an 800 point game! Additionally, we have certificates for participating and winning these games. There are limited number, so when gone their gone.

3. Painting Prizes. So we have certificates for the best of each class (commander, unit, vehicle, etc.). Painters will earn tickets in the raffle based on what they were able to complete. 1 ticket for a Commander. 2 for a unit (4 man), or 3 if 6 man. 2 for 2 Speeder Bikes, 2 for AT-RT, 3 for Air Speeder, and 3 for AT-ST. If we have less than 6 entries for this there will be 1 raffle, if we have more than 6 we'll do 2 raffles. Additionally players will score points for their side equal to the number of raffle tickets they earn! A bonus of 1 point per best of certificate won.

Should be fun!
