I know that the question of AT-ATs in Star wars Legion can be a bit controversial, some players are adamant that they don’t want to use them in the game or even want FFG to make the model…which to be honest is just pure selfishness, If you don’t want them in your game, thats fine, but don’t try to stop anyone else having fun, which is what I thought was the point in the first place.
If FFG do make a scale AT-AT walker for the game it would be great for those of us that want one, but of course it would be hugely expensive…….so start saving!
Whilst we wait for that there are a couple of other solutions for those of us that must have this monster on the table, one involves a trip to Disney land, another a now out of production model by Wizards of the coast, but my solution was a Revell 1/53 ish Scale model kit, which again is hideously expensive for what it is. If this is going to be your solution i would keep an eye out for some offers or sales of this kit, or stake out ebay for a few weeks, my solution to the problem was to write to Santa.
While we are on the subject…Revell, i wish you could make a range of models that have a common scale…..ye gods what is going on with them? To say that you’d sell more kits is an understatement, if they were all 1/48th and perhaps a slightly smaller range in 1/72nd you’d sell bucket loads.
Rant over, Ok its as near to scale as i can afford, and that will look ok. I know again, that not having everything on the table top in the same scale can be a problem for some model makers/gamers, but some times you have to lighten up and live a bit, lifes to short.
We are going with this, I will write up some basic rules for school use and see if i can’t make some actual legion style rules for it and make a few stat cards. It will not be invulnerable. We have some gun turrets and some Snow Speeders!
I have completely repainted the easy build kit, but lighting on the photos has not done it any favours, i will also likely add to the weathering, but it is nearly there.
