Players are responsible for bringing all of the game components they need to play a game of Star Wars: Legion. This includes their army, order tokens for each unit, command hand, sufficient dice for attack and defense rolls, movement tools, and a range ruler. In addition, players must bring 12 unique objective, deployment, and condition battle cards, four of each type. Players should bring a completed list or arrive early to fill one out.
Each player must build one army to use in the tournament using the army building rules in the Star Wars: Legion Rules Reference. An army cannot exceed 800 points, though it may contain fewer than 800 points. A player’s army must contain miniatures from only one faction unless an effect allows him or her to do otherwise. A player’s army must also include the appropriate number of units of each rank, as listed in the Star Wars: Legion Rules Reference. Each player must also build a command hand of seven command cards. A player must include two
1-pip cards, two 2-pip cards, and two 3-pip cards in their command hand. A player cannot include more than one copy of a command card. If a player includes a unique character’s command card, their army must contain that character. Each player must include the “Standing Orders” command card as their seventh command card.
Players in the Top 32 of a Star Wars: Legion Prime Championship will receive two promotional extended art cards: one of Luke Skywalker and one of Darth Vader. These unit cards serve as the centerpieces of the new Operative Expansions for these inextricably linked characters. With the extended art versions of these cards, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader will lead your troops to victory in their full glory.
In the Top 16, players will receive a set of six individual extended art command cards. These cards are unique to Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader and offer powerful abilities that you can employ in the midst of battle. With the heroic Luke Skywalker, you may use these extended art command cards to bolster your fortitude and disrupt the enemy using You Serve Your Master Well, Full of Surprises, and I Am A Jedi. While under the influence of Lord Vader, you can unleash both fear and fury using cards like Vader’s Might, Darkness Descends, and Fear and Dead Men.
Participants who are able to make their way into the Top 8 of a Prime Championship will be rewarded with a double-sided plastic spot gloss card of the Jedi Knight, Luke Skywalker, and the Emperor’s Apprentice, Darth Vader. Both of these storied operatives are certain to have a profound impact in the battles ahead, and with these spot gloss cards, they truly shine as the centerpiece of your formidable army.
Top Faction and Finalists
Those players who perform the best from their chosen faction will be rewarded for their efforts with a set of eight acrylic victory tokens. These tokens are emblazoned with the symbol of each faction: the Separatist Alliance, the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance, and the Galactic Republic. The two finalists of a Star Wars: Legion Prime Championship will each receive an acrylic order token set featuring Luke Skywalker clutching his lightsaber and preparing to face his father.
The commander that rises above the rest and seizes victory will be rewarded with a champion’s medallion for their ability to turn the tide of war! Taking the form of a commander token, this prestigious medal denotes your accomplishments as an experienced leader of your army. In addition, the champion will receive a box with two foam trays for trooper units featuring artwork of Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. The Prime Champion will also gain an invitation to the 2020 World Championships, where the finest commanders of all of the factions will meet for a final climactic battle.
