Review - Star Wars: Legion Core Set wargame base set from Fantasy Flight Games

System

Line of sight: Measured from the visual part of the miniature to any part of the target, including its base. This means those miniatures that stand at attention, or crouching with a periscope have an advantage over miniatures with flamboyant dresses or theatric poses (like almost all of the ones in the set).

Distance measuring: Any time.

Movement distance measuring: Only during the unit's activation. Since distance can be measured any time, I find this rule strange.

Movement tools and range ruler

Movement tools: 12mm wide, 6mm high. Small: 73mm long, Medium: 129mm long. Large: 180mm long

Range ruler segment: 173mm long, 11mm wide, 8mm high.

Miniatures

The base sizes in the game are 27mm, 50mm, 70mm and 100mm.

Infantry base: 27mm bottom, 25mm top sloping round plastic base, 5mm thick

Small vehicle base: 50mm round plastic base. The speeder uses this.

Medium vehicle base: 50mm round plastic base. The AT-RT Walker uses this.

Large vehicle base: 100mm round plastic base. Not included in the Core Set. The AT-ST and Airspeeder uses this.

Miniature size: The Stormtroopers (180cm high characters) are 40mm high from foot to eye level (so ca. 44mm to top of helmet). Luke (175cm hight character) is 35mm high. It means ca. 1/40 scale.
