Dangerous Droids – Three New Ally and Villain Packs for Star Wars Imperial Assault

May 16th, 2017

There’s almost no limit to what the droids of the Star Wars universe can do. They can walk and talk and think. They can be loyal. They can be treacherous. Sometimes, they may even be grumpy and cantankerous.

In one sense, they share hard limitations imposed upon them by their parts and their programming. But in another sense, they’re limited only by the imaginations of their creators. And this means that, just like the galaxy’s organic sentients, droids can play an astonishing array of roles—assassins or astromechs, medics or translators, heroes or villains.

And with the three new Ally and Villain Packs now available at your local retailer, you can explore more of these droids and their roles in your games of Imperial Assault!

  • BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack
  • Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack
  • Hera Syndulla Ally Pack

Disturbances in the Force: New Villain and Ally Packs Coming for Imperial Assault

swi47-49_box_spread

May 10th, 2017

Three powerful Force users… and not a single Jedi among them.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of two new Villain Packs and one new Ally Pack for Imperial Assault!

  • Maul Villain Pack
  • Emperor Palpatine Villain Pack
  • Ahsoka Tano Ally Pack

In the city where the Jedi Council once sat high enough above ground level to soak up the sun’s fading light, there are no more Jedi. The galaxy’s former self-appointed guardians have been swept aside by Order 66, and Emperor Palpatine has established an order of Inquisitors to hunt down and destroy any who still remain. Even those who simply demonstrated a sensitivity to the Force were at risk of being targeted, and many were captured and sent to a secret installation on planet Arkanis as part of Project Harvester.

As a result, the Jedi have all but ceased to exist, and they have faded even in the minds of the galaxy’s citizens, many of whom now view the Force as some “hokey religion.” But there are still some who can feel the Force and draw upon its strength. Some still seek to use its power to defend themselves and those around them. Others choose to wield the Force like a weapon that they can direct at their enemies. And when there are rumors leading toward an artifact that may enhance these individuals’ abilities to use the Force, you’ll find three of the most powerful of them ready to chase after those leads among the streets of Coruscant.

Together, these Ally and Villain Packs introduce three highly detailed figures for Maul, Emperor Palpatine, and Ahsoka Tano that you can use to replace their tokens in your Heart of the Empire campaign. Plus, they introduce brand-new missions for your campaign games and skirmishes, plus all the Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards you need to explore new Force-centered tactics in every mode of play.

Imperial Assault: Heart of the Empire Expansion Coming Soon!

Coruscant, capital of the galaxy. This globe-spanning metropolis is the home of Emperor Palpatine and countless other beings. It is also the home of countless mysteries, including the location of an ancient artifact of incredible importance…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of Heart of the Empire, a new expansion for Imperial Assault!

Adventure among the awesome Coruscant cityscape, and face its myriad dangers. Only the bravest rebels dare to operate here, but when it becomes vital to locate an ancient artifact before the Emperor can claim it as his own, you’ll set forth on a new, highly replayable campaign of sixteen missions that explore every level of the world, from its glistening halls of power to its grimy underworld alleys.

You’ll find three new heroes ready to join the Rebellion, aided by the talented Force user Ahsoka Tano. You’ll maneuver through the crowded city, pursued and confronted by Imperials at every turn. And you’ll find the Emperor isn’t the only major player working against you. The former Sith, Maul, has sent a Clawdite Shapeshifter to pursue the artifact, and any face in the crowd might hide the Shapeshifter’s true identity.

Altogether, Heart of the Empire expands your campaign and skirmish games with three heroes and thirteen other figures, including the massive AT-DP, baton-wielding Riot Troopers, and twin-gunned Sentry Droids. Coruscant comes to life with dozens of new map tiles and more than 130 cards. New energy shield and rubble tokens will throw a wrench in your opponent’s plans by modifying the battlefield, and new power tokens give you more control over your fate than ever before!

Utinni! – The Jawa Scavanger Villain Pack comes to Imperial Assault

swi42_box_left

April 7th, 2017

Almost no one knows what Jawas look like beneath their hooded brown robes—not even on Tatooine, where nearly everyone knows them by reputation. They are junk droid scavengers and merchants, and they traverse the desert planet in their massive, treaded sandcrawlers, hawking their wares to moisture farmers with few other options.

Not quite hostile, these Jawas aren’t truly friendly, either. Because their droids are often hastily refurbished, they push to strike their bargains quickly. Then they roll away in their sandcrawlers before the droids have a chance to malfunction.

It’s this combination of mystery, haggling, and droid-focused trickery that you’ll find brought to life by the figure, missions, and cards in the Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack for Imperial Assault.

Measuring 26” by 26”, this play mat features the entire map printed directly onto its surface, ensuring that your setup never takes more than seconds.

As you play, there’s plenty of room around the borders of the play mat for you to set up your Deployment cards and tokens, as well as handy references for each team’s starting setup zones. You’ll even find additional copies of the Anchorhead Cantina Skirmish cards included with this play mat, giving you everything you need for the definitive Imperial Assault skirmish experience.

These ARE The Droids You’re Looking For

swi41-42-43_boxes-good

January 24th, 2017

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce three new figure packs for Imperial Assault:

  • BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack
  • Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack
  • Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack

Across the Star Wars galaxy, droids fill every imaginable role. They serve food in restaurants, they deliver messages, they aid with diplomacy, they pilot starships, and sometimes, they take their place on the battlefield as medics, scouts, or combatants. Now, in the newest set of expansions for Imperial Assault, your droids will play a larger role than ever before. 

Within these three expansions, you’ll find some very different figures, but each one helps to enhance the droids of its faction. You may fight for the Galactic Empire with the sadistic protocol droid 0-0-0 and his explosive astromech companion, BT-1. In the furthest reaches of the Outer Rim, you may choose to support your fellow Mercenaries with a Jawa Scavenger. Or, you may kindle the fire of hope and rebellion with Hera Syndulla and her astromech droid, C1-10P—better known as “Chopper.”

The BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack, the Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack, and the Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack aren’t directly connected to any other Imperial Assault products, meaning that these characters enter the game for the first time in these expansions. Like previous Ally Packs and Villain Packs, however, these expansions offer detailed, sculpted plastic figures and new missions for your campaign and skirmish games. Finally, you’ll find an array of Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards designed to expand your options and increase the power of your droids!
