Cody is joined by Clone Troopers Waxer and Boil of Ghost Company who can be added to Clone Trooper corps units as personnel upgrades.
Clone Commander Cody Gets New Rules For Star Wars: Legion!
Cody can be used as a Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic. He comes in at 105 points, with a respectable number of abilities and options. Cody is a capable melee fighter, reflected in his Advanced Combat Training. When attacking at range, his DC-15A Blaster Rifle gives him a respectable 2 red, 1 black, and 1 white attack dice, along with Impact 1 and Lethal 1. Able to command a battle at its most pivotal point, Observe 2, Take Cover 1, and Direct: Vehicle are all abilities that reflect his prowess as the commanding officer of the 7th Sky Corps. Finally, his combat experience and equipment give him access to Target 1 and Surge: Critical, Jump 1, and Red defense dice.
He has decent stats and some pretty good abilities. He doesn’t have the craziest card we’ve ever seen, but that makes sense compared to a Jedi!
Bring it Down! allows Cody to perform his free actionslike Observe 2- up to two times. Then, when a friendly unit attacks an enemy with an observation token, that token can be spent to give the attack Suppressive if the enemy is a trooper unit, or Impact 1 if it’s a Vehicle unit, making this the perfect command card for removing pesky AATs or large formations of B1s. Known for his loyalty, Have I Ever Let You Down? gives Cody the ability to make an attack against any enemy that attacks a unit issued an order with this card. Combined Arms orders 2 troopers and 2 vehicles, and once again allows Clone Commander Cody to perform his free actions twice. Additionally, Vehicles may spend Observation tokens to give a nearby Clone Trooper a free speed-1 move—advancing your troops while providing them vital covering fire!
He has some cool cards and can buff up your clone troopers a ton. Then, being able to attack for free (more or less) when your own units get damaged is just really nice.
Lastly, Combined Arms is fantastic, as your vehicles get to lay down fire and have your troops advance under the covering fire!
