Do you want Star Wars on the tabletop? Because this is how you get it!
Star Wars: Legion created a huge buzz the day it was announced, and now we’re getting a look at the new miniatures for the Imperial players out there. Let’s take a look at what Fantasy Flight Games had to say about the new Stormtroopers, Speeder Bikes, and AT-ST expansion packs.
Stormtroopers Unit Expansion
No image is more iconic and symbolic of the Empire’s power than the expressionless helmet of an Imperial Stormtrooper. These soldiers have been deployed on hundreds of worlds across the galaxy, and everywhere they go, they keep the boot of Imperial oppression firmly placed on the neck of all who resist.
Filling a similar role to Rebel Troopers in an Alliance army, the Stormtroopers are the infantry foundation of any Empire mobilization. With the ability to supplement your squads of Stormtroopers with specialized miniatures to gain an advantage against powerful vehicles, you can upgrade your Stormtroopers to take down any kind of threat the Rebellion may field.
In the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find seven Stormtrooper miniatures, identical to the ones included in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set, along with the unit card and upgrade cards that you need to add another unit of Stormtroopers to your army.
74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion
The howl of a 74-Z Speeder Bike racing past is not something that’s easily forgotten. The Empire commonly uses these speeder bikes for scouting and reconnaissance missions, but they can also be deployed to terrifying effect on the battlefield, where their sheer speed often prevents the enemy from taking a clean shot.
As a unit capable of racing across massive swathes of the battlefield in a single round, the 74-Z Speeder Bikes are a crucial part of any Imperial deployment. Since they’re often ranging the far edges of the battlefield or flanking the enemy, a Long-Range Comlink is an undeniable boon, enabling you to issue orders to your Speeder Bikes even when they’re on the far side of the map. Alternatively, you may choose to equip these fast-moving vehicles with a Comms Jammer, preventing nearby enemies from receiving orders and potentially throwing your opponent’s plans into disarray!
The 74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion includes a unit of two 74-Z Speeder Bikes, and all the unit cards and upgrade cards you need to expand your forces with these lightning-fast speeders.
An AT-ST is an awe-inspiring sight to the average foot soldier. It towers above the battlefield, stalking inimically forward on mechanized legs and raining a hail of fire and death from its laser cannons and powerful weapons systems. With the AT-ST Unit Expansion, you’ll find a single finely sculpted, massive AT-ST miniature, which can be assembled to loom over the battlefield and provide a rallying point for your entire army. Alongside this beautiful miniature, you’ll find an assortment of all the unit cards and upgrade cards that you’ll need to fully integrate the AT-ST into the Empire’s war machine—and your armies.
It’s time to get those hobby muscles ready, these three new Imperial expansions are now available for pre-order on the Fantasy Flight Games website. It looks like you’re going to have plenty of options to build your army to match your play style. Do you want an army of heavy vehicles, Stormtroopers with bad aim, Speeder Bikes charging in really fast, or a combination of all three? The choice is yours…
The Movement Tools & Range Ruler pack, as well as an additional dice pack, are also available for pre-order.
This game looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and a perfect way to bring Star Wars into the tabletop wargaming scene even more. We can’t wait to get our hands on it!
