About this deal

Recently, I’ve begun painting the Stormtrooper miniatures that come with Fantasy Flight Game’s Imperial Assault Base Set. The game is GLORIOUS, and the miniatures are GLORIOUS. But since the miniatures come unpainted, I needed to do something about that. A ubiquitous sight across the galaxy, white-armored stormtroopers strike fear into the hearts of all those who would oppose the Empire. Though their uniform armor and rigid tactics emphasize the crushing weight of Imperial might, Stormtroopers can be surprisingly flexible units that serve a multitude of roles in Imperial strike forces. Some of us just have to learn the hard way. But those of us who have traveled the path before, learning by trial-and-error, will gladly share our experience if it will keep a fellow nerd from falling flat on his face. I’ve touched the hot stove so we won’t have to. Ultimately, no matter how you choose to equip your Stormtroopers, these squads fill out your Imperial armies, supporting mighty units like Darth Vader or an AT-ST as they stomp into battle. When standing a miniature next to an 80% scale AT-ST, the miniature will appear ever so slightly larger than they would if everything was true 100% scale. But with a sliding scale, we try to ensure that the objects, terrain and vehicles that are scaled remain within a realistic scale.

From that, we can find out that the average eye height from the ground of a 75th percentile male is 1678mm. A ubiquitous sight across the galaxy, white-armoured stormtroopers strike fear into the hearts of all those who would oppose the Empire. Though their uniform armour and rigid tactics emphasise the crushing weight of Imperial might, Stormtroopers can be surprisingly flexible units that serve a multitude of roles in Imperial strike forces. We certainly wouldn’t shrink an AT-ST to 50% scale as it would look unbelievably small and affect both immersion and gameplay. Within this expansion, you’ll find four unpainted, uniquely sculpted soft plastic Imperial Stormtrooper miniatures to enhance your existing Stormtrooper units. Joining a Stormtrooper Captain are a Stormtrooper Specialist as well as a T-21 Stormtrooper and an RT-97C Stormtrooper that can both be constructed with their heavy weapons or the standard E-11 blaster rifle. These miniatures are accompanied by seven upgrade cards that allow you to incorporate them into your existing Stormtrooper units as well as a unit card inviting you to create a completely new unit.Being that Fantasy Flight Games (the company behind Star Wars Legion) won’t tell us the exact scale that they work to. It is very much up to us as fans of Star Wars Legion to work out the correct scale to print our miniatures, landscape and props. The 35mm reference is due to the miniatures eye height, which is 35.7mm from the ground. Fun fact! What scale are the official Star Wars Legion model kits?

So the sliding scale steps in to help out with this issue. It works by squeezing the scale of objects the larger they are. For example, small objects and vehicles that are either nearby miniatures or used by them will stay at the correct scale of 1:48. This makes them 100% scale as it is true to scale compared to the minis. This expansion for Star Wars: Legion contains four unpainted and finely sculpted soft plastic Stormtrooper miniatures different from those found in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set and the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, inviting you to enhance your existing Stormtrooper units or to form a corps unit of their own. Alongside these new miniatures, you’ll also find new heavy weapon and personnel upgrade options to outfit your Stormtroopers for any situation. Outfit your Stormtroopers with new heavy weapons for even more tactical flexibility. Add a T-21 Stormtrooper to make critical strikes or an RT-97C Stormtrooper for powerful shots from long range. Stormtroopers Star Wars: Legion Core Set, but as a corps unit, you can include up to six units of Stormtroopers in your army. Their low cost of 44 points for a single squad also makes them one of your go-to options for filling out your army’s rank and file. Trim the plastic. When plastic miniatures are molded there will occasionally be tiny slivers of plastic residue or a little extra plastic which builds up around the mold line. This extra plastic needs to be trimmed off because it distracts from the detail of the miniature.So while the exact math points to Star Wars Legion miniatures being around 1:47 scale, official kits point to 1:48 scale. Both Bandai and Revell sell Star Wars model kits which are at 1:48 scale. They both also sell model kits at 1:52 and 1:53 scale which will also work well with Star Wars Legion. The sliding scale A DLT-19 Stormtrooper from the Star Wars: Legion Core Set or the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, for example, can blast enemies—even those with armour—from beyond the range of a standard E-11 blaster rifle. Similarly, an RT-97C Stormtrooper found in the Imperial Stormtroopers Upgrade Expansion can maintain these long range shots while also producing a higher rate of fire.
