Finally got in another game of SWMB.

The rebels had to defend a wooded hill against a much larger (twice the SGP's) Imperial force. I setup the table as basically one long sloping hill and scattered all the vegetation terrain I had around it. Aside from some isolated clumps I made a forested side and an open side. Threw in a bunker for atmosphere.

20 stormtroopers, 12 navy troopers, and 8 army troopers charged the hill. The defenders were 10 rebel troopers, 8 Mon Calamari, and 2 heroes (an ewok named Curu, and a space pirate named Pat Katan). Each side had one heavy weapon.

Imperial regulars advance through serious terrain to press the Mon Calamari and Curu off the rebel's right flank.

The idea was to give a badly outmatched rebel army a horribly unfair terrain advantage and see what happened. Ultimately we should've given the rebels some stone walls at the top of the hill, or curated better fields of fire for their medium repeating blaster, or something. The stormtroopers, rebel troopers, and Pat Katan all but destroyed each other (like 3 stormtroopers survived) on one flank. That left Curu and a handful of Mon Cals against 20 Imperials with a heavy blaster. By the time they negotiated the woods and hills it was clear the remaining rebels would be totally overrun.

How did you run it? Did you use star-wars legion rules/miniature rules? or did you use the WEG rules?


AND loved the pics!

Awesome pics. I love the smooth shape of hills and Curu. I've been meaning to convert an ewok miniature or two of my own for a while.

Garkhal, thanks. I used the WEG rules. Legion quickly becomes tiresome and fiddly.

Ryan Darkstar, the hills and other topography are all by Geo-Hex, the company that made the scenery in the book pictures. They are back in business, selling on eBay and at conventions. Prices for Geo-Hex have dropped considerably against inflation since the 90's.

Curu was made from a Wicket. I want to convert a whole adventuring party of Ewoks but we'll see.
