The Launch Event will have Three activities to participate in.
Each activity in which you participate presents you a chance to earn points for your faction. Report the results of your Build & Play game, score your Challenge Duels, and bring your faction’s miniatures to the Painting Contest. At the end of the weekend, after all events have concluded, your event organizer will tally the results, and the winning faction will seize control of the store.
1: Step-by-Step Build & Play:
The first part of our Launch Weekend is reserved for opening the box, exploring all of its components, assembling your miniatures, and running your units through some introductory drills that help you get a good sense of the rules. Share the experience with a friend, and you can each assemble the figures for one side—Rebel or Imperial—and move twice as fast toward your first taste of the game’s intense ground battles.
2: Challenge Duels:
Once you have your troops assembled and you’ve learned the basics, you’re all set for battle! The second portion of the Star Wars: Legion Launch Weekend is a chance to test your tactical acumen in the field. You and a friend will take turns pitting units against each other and recording the outcomes of these skirmishes. There are two separate duels, and you can play both sides of each duel, reporting your results to the organizer.
-Luke Skywalker and six Rebel Troopers versus Darth Vader and six Imperial Stormtroopers.
-A T-47 Airspeeder and six Rebel Troopers versus an AT-ST and six Imperial Stormtroopers
Every participant receives a participation prize, and the most successful player with each of the four armies will win a commemorative art print.
3: Painting Contest:
The final part of the Star Wars: Legion Launch Weekend is a painting contest. Your retailer will schedule a time for you to bring in and show off your painted miniature or unit. This is an opportunity for you to see what others have done and learn from more experienced veterans, or show off your own skills. The event culminates with multiple winners—for the best painted Commander, Corps, Support, and Heavy. The winning painters will claim commemorative certificates for their work.
Will your store recruit for the Galactic Empire? Or will it serve as a bastion of Rebel activity? At Launch Weekend, the decision’s up to you and your friends!
