When it comes to the hobby side of things, one of the questions I often see beginners pose in the Facebook group and on the Discord is: what’s the best way to make my units look distinct on the battlefield?
It’s a good question, and one I struggled with at the start. At first, I intended to paint each Stormtrooper unit with a different color pauldrons, but ended up settling on something different (which you can see at the end).
But my story is just one, and so I went to the Discord users for some help. I received a ton of photo submissions after asking very nicely, so thank you to everyone who submitted their unique take on differentiating Legion units.
A Galaxy of Choices
Shown below are three user submissions, ranging from simple and obvious to advanced and nuanced. Following those three is a photo of my own design. I hope you find these useful for inspiring your own creativity!
Without further ado:
1) Simple and Clean
2) Stylish and Clear
3) A Nuanced Take
4) Groggy’s War Dogs
Hopefully this has helped you figure out what to do for differentiating your units. If you’ve got other ideas or suggestions, leave them in the comments below.
Happy differentiating, Commanders!
