The first and most critical change is the introduction of a trooper silhouette template designed to give all trooper minis in the game a single, standardized shape. It is frustrating to have your commander defeated because the tip of their weapon is poking out from behind a wall, or to have your creativity constrained by the need to model your miniatures with competitive line of sight rules in mind. With the advent of dynamic flight stands for the upcoming ARC Troopers and Clan Wren, it’s more important than ever to free players from these concerns.
With that in mind, the physical trooper miniatures themselves will no longer factor into competitive line of sight rules. Instead, we have created a silhouette representing a universal standard trooper size, designed to be placed against and behind a trooper’s base to determine line of sight to and from that miniature.
Additionally, the silhouette includes a hash mark at the top that can be used when measuring line of sight from a miniature. Crouching or kneeling miniatures will no longer have to worry about whether or not they can see over a barricade or other short obstacle!
