Jan 13, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Allies and Adversaries sourcebook for Star Wars Roleplaying!

This sourcebook collects the profiles for heroic Rebels, evil Imperials, and galactic scum and villainy drawn from all three Star Wars Roleplaying game lines, along with a host of brand-new individuals who have never before been profiled. This sourcebook is an essential collection of NPCs, whether you’re playing Edge of the EmpireAge of Rebellion, or Force and Destiny. In all, over 130 NPCs are fully statted throughout the book for use in any Star Wars Roleplaying campaign!

Wherever you travel in your Star Wars adventures, the Game Master needs to ensure there are plenty of memorable and exciting Non-Player Characters. After all, while the worlds and locations of Star Wars are iconic, it’s the individuals that make this universe so unique. Allies and Adversaries is the perfect resource for bringing these characters to life in Star Wars Roleplaying!

Each NPC entry includes not only the profile for that character or character type, but also plenty of Game Master tips for using the character in your own games—ranging from places where this NPC is likely to be found to how they typically interact with others. Furthermore, ideas for potential encounters with these characters are also presented, giving Game Masters the seeds they need to easily incorporate these characters into their campaign.

Wookie Warriors Unit Expansion Available for Star Wars: Legion

Dec 28, 2018

In the ongoing struggles of the Galactic Civil War, the Rebel Alliance has one distinct advantage over the Empire. While the ranks of the Imperial military are almost exclusively filled with humans, beings from countless worlds across the Star Wars galaxy have flocked to the Rebellion to commit themselves to the cause of freedom. Each new species that joins the Rebel ranks can contribute to a mission in its own unique way, giving the Rebels options beyond rank-and-file troopers.

Nowhere is this more evident than the Wookiee Warriors of Kashyyyk. Typically a peaceful species, these imposing warriors possess a volatile temperament that makes them absolutely terrifying when provoked. Soon you’ll be able to direct your Wookiees’ fury at your Imperial foes on the battlefields of Star Wars™: Legion with the Wookiee Warriors Unit Expansion.

In this expansion, you’ll find four unpainted, easily assembled Wookiee Warrior miniatures eager to test their tenacity and resolve on the battlefield. Already fearsome on their own, five upgrade cards give you the chance to further enhance their abilities. Finally, a unit card and a handful of tokens let you fully incorporate a unit of Wookiee Warriors into your armies. Join us today as we take a look at everything a group of Wookiee Warriors adds to your Rebel army!

Brigade Models Release a new Neo-Soviet Supercarrier

Nov 18, 2018

The 6mm sci-fi Neo-Soviet Ulyanovsk supercarrier SFS-1211 made its debut at Brigade Models.

At 115mm long, this is a huge model, the largest spaceship we’ve produced so far. The hull is resin, with four metal engines, three heavy gun turrets and a metal bridge to top it all off. It carries as many as fourteen fighter groups, along with the three battleship-class mass accelerator turrets and a myriad of secondary weapons. It has hefty shielding along with armour plating, so is a very tough nut to crack – you can find the Starmada-X playsheet here.

Spiral Arm Studios Releases Pa’ku Artillery

Nov 4, 2018

This month sees the release of a new support unit for the Broken: Pa’ku Artillery, available now from the Maelstrom’s Edge webstore!

Behind the implacable visage of the Pa’ku resides a powerful, if often misunderstood intellect. Extremely logical creatures, when the Pa’ku are convinced a certain course of action will do more good than wrong, they will take lives without scruples if that is what it takes. Pa’ku artillery has been known to mercilessly bombard hospitals or civilian refugee groups when they have concluded that this was the most logical course of action. They do not make any decision lightly nor do they act carelessly. In fact, the Pa’ku sometimes drive their commanders crazy as they sit pondering the pros and cons of a proposed course of action and all the alternatives, and where the situation is particularly complex have been known to gather for private war councils with their own kind before they will consider responding to a call to arms. Despite their reputation for ruthlessness, when Pa’ku take lives it is because they believe there is no viable alternative. This does not however mean they are saints – all of a Pa’ku’s deliberations are still ultimately guided by self-interest and a desire to survive the chaos of the Edge. Despite their peculiarities, Pa’ku are especially desirable to the Broken. Their solid physiques make them extremely suited to carrying heavy loads, including the biggest artillery the Broken manage to cobble together. At close range, the Pa’ku can extend their very long tongue with enough force to cave in a man’s skull. Pa’ku only speak to other species when necessary, and their language is difficult for most races to translate or speak. Combined with their large size, this generally results in them being overlooked by evacuation efforts, and so as with the even larger Gnolti, joining the Broken is often the only reasonable chance for a Pa’ku to escape the edge and find a new home. Pa’ku are often found in the support lines of Broken forces with giant cannon and other esoteric weapons strapped to their broad shoulders. Linked with electronic targeting systems, these weapons can be slaved together to unleash devastating barrages of firepower onto enemy lines. Their favoured weapon is a multi-barrelled EMP mortar, which carpets the battlefield with explosive energy packets that can fry electronic systems and incinerate softer targets.

You can find the rules for the Pa’ku Artillery unit in the Force Builder section of the Maelstrom’s Edge website.

Oct 5, 2018

The Boba Fett Operative Expansion for Star Wars: Legion is now available from Fantasy Flight Games. Add a mercenary element to your Imperial forces and track your foes to the farthest reaches of the galaxy today!

Despite the military advantages of the Galactic Empire, it is difficult for them to completely stamp out the flames of rebellion. The Rebels always seem to be one step ahead, secreting themselves away in the far corners of the galaxy.

Now, one of the galaxy’s deadliest hired guns is available to hunt down and eliminate Rebel scum wherever they can be found.

When the overwhelming might of Imperial legions isn’t enough to bring down the Rebellion, sometimes it’s best to rely on someone with a little more expertise. Add Boba Fett to your army and he’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done!

Hire the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunter to join your Imperial forces on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War with the Boba Fett Operative Expansion (SWL18) for Star Wars: Legion
