Fantasy Flight Previews Imperial Death Troopers for Star Wars: Legion

March 24, 2019

With nearly limitless resources at its disposal, the Galactic Empire is capable of creating all kinds of unimaginable weapons. But not every problem can be eliminated with a single blast from the Death Star’s immense superlaser. Some missions require a more delicate touch. When high-ranking Imperial officers like Director Orson Krennic need a scalpel instead of a cudgel, they turn to the Imperial Death Troopers.

Trained in multiple forms of combat and proficient at erasing their involvement from operations, these elite soldiers are a terrifying sight to anyone unfortunate enough to stand in their way.

You’ll soon be able to have your own squads of Death Troopers do your bidding on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War with the Imperial Death Troopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion from Fantasy Flight Games.

Within this expansion, you’ll find six unique, highly detailed, unpainted Imperial Death Trooper miniatures for you to add to your collection, including four troopers prepared to carry out any mission with their E-11D blaster rifles. Meanwhile, the Death Trooper designated DT-F16 and a DLT-19D Trooper can bring even more firepower to the unit. Finally, you can make full use of all your Death Troopers’ training with eight upgrade cards that give them access to more gear and comms equipment.

Collapse of the Republic Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG Announced

March 13, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Collapse of the Republic sourcebook for Star Wars Roleplaying!

Collapse of the Republic explores the latter days of the Clone Wars, following on the events described in Rise of the Separatists, and is fully compatible with the complete Star Wars Roleplaying game lines including Edge of the EmpireAge of Rebellion, and Force and Destiny.

Here, you can look for new player character options, including the ability to play as a Death Watch Warrior, a Nightsister, and more! The Game Master also gets plenty of new tools, including profiles on iconic NPCs, gazeteers for famous planets during this era, and continuing campaigns through the events of Order 66 and the end of the Clone Wars.

Collapse of the Republic serves as a companion piece and a sequel of sorts to Rise of the Separatists. While the latter book details the first half of the Clone Wars, Collapse of the Republic details the end of the war and the Republic. Along with a new era embraced by this new book, you’ll also find new species and specializations included within the sourcebook—all of which played a role in the Clone Wars, including the mystic Dathomirians.

Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion Announced

Mar 8, 2019

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion!

Forced to the fringes of the galaxy by the relentless pursuit of the Galactic Empire, the Rebel Alliance must establish bases on remote planets far from the gaze of Darth Vader and his feared Death Squadron. Though this might take them to barren worlds like the frigid wastes of Hoth, the Rebels often use their ingenuity to turn these less-than-ideal conditions into an advantage. Using the local fauna to bolster their forces, they can easily traverse a planet’s surface and—in some instances—even use these beasts to fight the Empire. Soon, you can bring one of the most iconic creatures from the Star Wars saga to your epic struggles of the Galactic Civil War.

Trained to expertly handle their surefooted mounts across the windswept plains of Hoth, Tauntaun Riders help the Rebellion navigate nearly any environment, scouting Imperial positions and often slowing the enemy’s advance until the rest of the Rebel army can arrive. Within this expansion, you’ll find two unique unpainted Tauntaun Rider miniatures, enough for one support unit, along with a new unit card for you to field in battle. Your tauntaun’s natural speed and defense make them useful in a number of situations, of course, and this pack also contains three upgrade cards that give you the freedom to find a role for them that fits your particular battle plan.

 

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
