MA In Art History - The Soundness of Plans

“A great tactician creates plans. A good tactician recognizes the soundness of a plan presented on him. A fair tactician must see the plan succeed before offering approval.
Those with no tactical ability at all may never understand or accept it. Nor will such people understand or accept the tactician. To those without that ability, those who posses it are a mystery.
And when a mind is too deficient in understanding, the resulting gap is often filled with with resentment.” 
― Timothy Zahn, Star Wars: Thrawn

That's No FAQ! - 7/16/18 Legion Rules Update

I usually do an FAQ update every time Armada releases one, but Legion doesn't play like that.  Instead, we have a living document for our rules.

That's pretty sweet.

Anyway, FFG released an update that goes into effect on the 16th of July.  Let's take a look at what changes, what is possible spoilers, and what we can learn:

Spoilers:  This is allowed.

The World is Officially Ending: Sato is Legit

If you haven't been keeping up with Shmitty and I's lately Armada escapades, we both got the bug to take Sato off the trash heap and give him the old college try for Store Championship season. I think we both expected to have a good laugh, get a bunch of fun games in, and then turn back to more serious fleets as we prepped for big tournaments (GENCON for Shmitty, NOVA for myself). We bounced ideas off each other, refined our own takes, and then got him on the table at about the same time. First it seemed like a fluke. Then it the reality began to settle in. Ready for a sweeping declaration? Sato is legitimately viable in this meta.

Ground Commander's Guide - Han Solo: Unorthodox General

So, we've got Han Solo completely spoiled for us at this point.  It's fair to say we can do a pretty reasonable Ground Commander's Guide for him, assuming we got an accurate review.

Combined Arms - Integrating Different Units In Your Legion Army

Here's an article that has been asked for, but difficult to write.  How do we talk about utilizing different units in our Legion armies and the best strategies for doing so?  Well, the best way to do this is to look at general battle strategy.

Just so you know where I'm getting my sources on this.

Let's Talk Tournaments

Kits are showing up for Legion, and Armada's Store Championships are in full swing.  So lets take a look at the tournament structure of both, and look at some terms common to the tournament scene.

That's the old MOV list!

BA in Art History - Making Thrawn Work

Okay, so honestly there isn't a whole lot to making Thrawn "work".  Take Thrawn, dial up 3 Navigates, then set your dials on Turns 3, 4, and 5 to anything else.  That was easy, next!
