Scheduled from March 22nd – 25th, and with activities running all weekend long, the Launch Weekend offers you and your friends a great chance to pick up your Core Set and dive into it alongside other enthusiastic players. Assemble your models, paint a figure or two, and fight your first battles. Participate in any or all of three distinct activites—a Step-by-Step Build & Play, Challenge Duels, and a Painting Contest.
Enjoy one or more of these activities. Win commemorative prizes. And bring a friend — the Star Wars: Legion Launch Weekend is the perfect time to start building your local play group!
You don’t need any prior experience with Star Wars: Legion to enjoy the Launch Weekend. But by the end of it, you’ll be ready to lead your infantry into the thickest of combats.
The Star Wars: Legion Launch Weekend consists of three separate activities, each of which comes with its own rewards—a Step-by-Step Build & Play, Challenge Duels, and a Painting Contest. You can participate in one, two, or all three of these events as you wish, but the more you attend, the more exclusive materials you can claim.
