Rebel Pathfinders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion Previewed

Feb 22, 2019

The odds are stacked against the Rebel Alliance in almost every confrontation with the Empire, but especially so for the Rebel’s special forces units. Often operating deep behind enemy lines, these elite operatives are accustomed to facing the full weight of the Imperial war machine without the support of a larger army. The Rebel Pathfinders show a particular dedication to the cause of the Rebellion, often volunteering for the most dangerous missions.

Making extensive use of guerrilla tactics to infiltrate and liberate key areas, the spies, saboteurs, and assassins that make up these units draw on their vast experience to get the job done with little thought of the obstacles that may stand in their way. Soon, you’ll have some of the Rebellion’s best soldiers at your command with the Rebel Pathfinders Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion.

Within this expansion, you’ll find six unique, highly detailed miniatures. Four Rebel Pathfinders armed with A-300 blaster rifles are ready to do anything to keep the dream of the Rebellion alive, while Bistan and Pao are roaring into battle, ready to add some extra firepower with their heavy weapons. Adaptable and ready for anything, your Pathfinders can be further customized with eight upgrade cards that give you new options for how they attack, move across the battlefield, and more. Join us today as we take a look at everything included in the Rebel Pathfinders Unit Expansion!

Fantasy Flight Games Releases the Downed AT-ST Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

Feb 21, 2019

The Imperial All Terrain Scout Transport is a formidable war machine, cutting through Rebel lines as it stomps across the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War. Despite their appearance, however, these intimidating assault vehicles aren’t invincible. Soon you’ll find out what happens when one of these towering terrors comes crashing down. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Downed AT-ST Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion!

Rather than marching forward and raining mortar shells on the hapless Rebels in its path, the wrecked AT-ST you’ll find in this expansion joins the fabric of the battlefield itself, providing valuable cover for your troops no matter what planet they’re fighting on. In addition to deepening your immersion in the Star Wars galaxy, the six new battle cards in this expansion also invite you to make your crashed AT-ST a focal point of the struggle between the Empire and the Rebellion, adding even more variety to your games of Star Wars: Legion.

A downed AT-ST is certain to draw the attention of both Rebel and Imperial troops, of course, and while this miniature can enhance any battlefield you find yourself on, it can also play a larger role as a crucial objective in a totally new type of conflict. The Downed AT-ST Battlefield Expansion contains six new battle cards that dramatize a two-act struggle over a wrecked AT-ST, outlining the objectives, deployments, and conditions of a brand-new, two-part scenario.

Even without the use of its powerful MS-4 Twin Blaster Cannons and other heavy weapons, an AT-ST can still play a pivotal role in the confrontations between the Empire and the Rebellion—especially if it’s a part of the battlefield itself.

Look for the Downed AT-ST Battlefield Expansion (SWL30) to be released in the second quarter of 2019

Announcing the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

Jan 26, 2019

For the Galactic Empire, conquering a planet is only the beginning of the battle. Massive vehicles like AT-STs and elite shock troops like Imperial Death Troopers may be effective at sweeping across battlefields and capturing new territory, but they rarely stick around to hold this ground. Soon, however, you’ll gain a powerful tool that can help quell any opposition that might rise against Imperial occupation.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Few symbols of Imperial occupation are more readily apparent than a TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank. Heavily armed and capable of carrying either cargo or personnel, one of these tanks can be a versatile asset to stormtrooper detachments on occupation duty. With the TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank Unit Expansion, you’ll find a single finely sculpted, menacing TX-225 miniature that can work in tandem with your ground troops to impose the Empire’s will wherever it’s been assigned. This beautiful miniature is accompanied by the full assortment of unit cards, upgrade cards, and tokens that you’ll need to add one to your armies.

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!

Boba Fett Operative Expansion Available Now for Star Wars: Legion

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. So when the Empire needs someone who can do more than fire a blaster, Imperial generals have no qualms about hiring bounty hunters to track important Rebel targets and join the fight alongside their troops. 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

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion Is Now Available for Star Wars: Legion

July 16, 2018

Now, you can bring these objectives to vivid life and reshape the very landscape you fight on. The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion is available now from Fantasy Flight Games, encouraging you to bring a new level of Star Wars realism to your battlefields today!

As the desperate struggles of the Galactic Civil War play out across the galaxy, the goals of the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic Empire are rarely as simple as the total destruction of the opposing army. Similarly, whether they take you to the dense forests of Endor, the vast deserts of Tatooine, or the frigid wastes of Hoth, the battles of Star Wars™: Legion see you fighting to accomplish a variety of different objectives.

The Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion offers several ways to shake up your games of Star Wars: Legion, starting with the way your objectives are represented on the battlefield. Each of your Star Wars: Legion battles tasks you with completing specific objectives in order to gain the tokens you’ll need to claim victory. You might fight to secure transmissions containing vital intelligence, recover lost supplies, or simply attempt to gain control of strategically important positions. Normally, all of these objectives are represented by objective tokens placed across the battlefield.

With the twelve new objective miniatures contained in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion, however, these objective tokens become a part of the landscape of the battleground itself. The three comms stations, four moisture vaporators, and five supply crates you’ll find here deepen your immersion in the Star Wars galaxy by providing a visible representation of your objectives or adding more thematic variety to your terrain.

The battles of the Galactic Civil War take place on many fronts. Put your own personal touch on each one with the miniatures and cards found in the Priority Supplies Battlefield Expansion!
