Welcome to The Legion Academy Blog!

We are aiming to make this website a multipurpose tool for many of your Star Wars Legion needs. We hope that everyone, from the casual fan to the hardcore competitive player can find something useful on our site. Here is a breakdown of the purpose of each section:

Live Podcasts

On our Podcast page you will find both the video and audio only versions of our podcast. We stream every Podcast live on our Legion Academy Facebook page on Tuesday nights at approximately 7pm CST. Sometimes we tend to start a bit later if we have things going on. You can find the videos here, or on the Legion Academy YouTube page. The audio version of our podcast is available on iTunes, Google Play, Podbean, Spotify, and most other podcast apps. Thank you for watching, listening and continuing to support us! We would greatly appreciate it if you could give us a like on Facebook and YouTube.

Friday Night Fights

Join us every Friday night at 7pm CST for our Friday Night Fights live stream on Facebook. We will bring you games from both the skirmish and full size formats featuring players from many different experience levels. The games will be uploaded to our YouTube channel so that you can go back and watch them at any time. Whether you are a new player or a hardcore competitive player, we hope that you will find these streams fun and interactive. If you are interested in being a guest commentator on the stream, please contact us via a direct message on Facebook.

Tech Talk


We have broken our tech talk section into two main categories – Mechanics and Unit Analysis.

The Mechanics section will focus on interesting uses of different keywords, unit abilities, synergies, and interesting tactics. For example, our first article contains information on how Guardian works and interesting uses of it.

The Unit Analysis will focus on breaking down the specifics of individual units. This information will include what upgrades are possible and what we feel is worth taking. We will explore each unit’s mathematical efficiencies and talk about some interesting synergies that will develop with other units in your list. We will also update these articles regularly as new units come out.

Terrain Tutorials


In this section you will find tutorials on both scratch building and 3D printing terrain. Shawn Morris of the Terrain Studio will be creating videos showing the different techniques that he uses to create terrain for Fantasy Flight Games and more. The goal is to show both new and experienced terrain makers that anyone can do this, and you won’t even need to spend a lot of money to create amazing Star Wars Legion terrain.

Our community section will highlight both our podcast audience and our local communities. Here you will find information on the giveaways that we do regularly on the podcast.

We also highlight the 312th Legion, the local Chicago community that Joe is part of. We are extremely proud of our team and will be showcasing their many talents and tournament successes in that section.

Thanks for checking out our site!
