2023 is going to bring us a brand new Star Wars Tabletop game: Star Wars Shatterpoint!
In what looks to be a scale with slightly larger miniatures than Star Wars Legion, Star Wars Shatterpoint boasts several new characters not yet seen on our tabletops, and a close quarters skirmish game that aims to bring it’s own ruleset and experience to your tabletop!
With it’s own unique art style, Shatterpoint looks to include only characters featured in The Clone Wars, marking this as the first ever Star Wars game NOT to lead with Luke Skywalker facing off against Darth Vader! While information is still fairly limited, we do know that many Clone Wars characters are also coming with the game’s launch, such as Ahsoka Tano, Lord Maul, Anakin Skywalker, Obi Wan Kenobi, Jango Fett, Count Dooku, General Grievous, and Assaj Ventress. Other confirmed characters to be coming in future expansions include Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, and Padme Amidala.
Star Wars Shatterpoint is expected to launch in the Summer of 2023 with the first demo opportunities to be at Adepticon of 2023. More information will be available soon, so stay tuned!
AMG has been having a rough time lately with near constant errors and misprints in many of their recent releases for titles like Legion, Armada, and X-Wing. With a recent vow to do better and some personnel helping out with social media, it looks like they are pledging to make things better in the future. But will it be enough?
AMG recently issued the following notice to their social media with regards to the many errors with the Legion Battle Packs. They offered Print and Play documents on their website to address corrections and items that were left out. And while this effort was addressing the 501st and Separatist Invasion packs, the other Battle Forces have had mistakes as well.
The Battle Force Packs aren’t the only issues AMG has had with it’s Star Wars titles. Earlier Legion waves have had misprinted cards, cards not included, incorrect basing on the box art, and even “Marvel” printed on Din Djarin and Grogu’s model sprue, in place of Lucasfilm. These types of issues aren’t only for Legion either. X-Wing’s first Scenario Pack “The Battle of Yavin” has multiple misprints and even Armada’s digital-only release “Rapid Reinforcements I” had digital errata shortly after release to correct some significant mistakes.
While it is certainly problematic to have this many errors – we can also recognize that they have acknowledged that there are problems and are pledging to do better. Time will have to tell. How do you think AMG will do in 2023?
