Jan 30, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Leia Organa Commander Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

From Alderaanian diplomat to leader of the Rebel Alliance, Leia Organa’s legacy has been one of inspiration, heroism, self-sacrifice, and leadership. Along with Han Solo and Luke Skywalker, her actions directly led to the ultimate downfall of the Galactic Empire—so it’s only fitting that she takes her place in Star Wars: Legion as the Rebellion’s second commander, battling alongside Luke Skywalker.

Inside the Leia Organa Commander Expansion, you’ll find everything that you need to add Leia Organa to your army as a commander. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature beautifully represents Leia Organa on the battlefield, while new upgrade cards allow you to customize how she is represented in the game. Finally, a hand of three new command cards lets you add a unique touch to your overarching strategies, bringing some of Leia Organa’s own unique tactics to your games. Releasing alongside the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion, these two expansions promise new tactics for the Rebellion to employ in their struggles for freedom.

Jan 29, 2018

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the next Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion—the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion!

From the opening shots of A New Hope, we’re introduced to an ongoing space battle as a massive Star Destroyer closes in on a tiny corvette. The first characters we see within the beleaguered Tantive IV are C-3PO and R2-D2, but only moments later, we witness a squad of troopers dashing down the hallway to defend Leia Organa’s starship against the Imperial boarding party. With this Unit Expansion, you can bring those soldiers’ dedication and readiness for battle to your games of Star Wars: Legion.

The Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion immediately expands the options available to your Rebel armies with seven unpainted, easily assembled Fleet Trooper miniatures. An assortment of upgrade cards lets you customize your Fleet Troopers to match the battles you expect to face. After all, whether you’re battling in the tight corridors of a starship or on a more open battlefield, your Fleet Troopers can make the difference in your fights. Releasing alongside the Leia Organa Commander Expansion, these two expansions promise to shake up Rebel Alliance tactics for Star Wars: Legion.

AT-ST Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion Available to Pre Order

Across the Star Wars saga, Imperial walkers have formed a key part of the Empire’s ground-based operations. The Imperial assault on Hoth was spearheaded by massive AT-ATs, with lighter, more mobile AT-STs providing flank support. Though All-Terrain Scout Transports (or AT-STs) may lack the sheer firepower and impenetrable armor of an AT-AT, their mobility and ease of deployment makes them a favored option for any Imperial general. Soon, you’ll be able to bring your own AT-STs to your games of Star Wars™: Legion!

Yyou can pre-order your copies of the AT-ST Unit Expansion online today!

In a game of Star Wars: Legion, an AT-ST holds the heavy rank—a rank that’s well suited to the AT-ST’s towering size and intimidating firepower. A standard Star Wars: Legion army can only include two heavy units, and in truth, you would be hard-pressed to include more than two AT-STs among your forces. Coming in at a base cost of 195 points, a single AT-ST takes up almost a quarter of your full allotment of 800 points in a standard game. Between nearly unbreakable armor and an undeniable assortment of firepower, it’s plain to see that an AT-ST can have a game-changing impact on the field of battle. How many AT-STs will you field, and how will you upgrade them?

Alongside these Snowtroopers, you’ll find an assortment of upgrade cards, inviting you to kit out your Snowtroopers for whatever you expect to face on the field of battle.

This expansion pack offers an unpainted General Veers miniature and his three personal command cards, inviting you to bring Veers’ personal touch to the Imperial armies that you lead into battle. What’s more, like other Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion, this Commander Expansion includes a unit card for General Veers and an assortment of upgrade cards that you can use to equip General Veers or another unit for battle in even the most hostile environments.
