My favorite part in any Star Wars movie is the assault on Hoth. That cold-weather attack finally showed what the movies had been telling us: that the Imperial Army was a major fighting force to be reckoned with and feared. All we’d seen up to that point was the taking of the Tantiv IV. So this was really the Imperial’s chance to shine. For those that want to recreate that scene on the tabletop, you’ll be able to soon with the Snowtrooper Assault expansion pack for Star Wars: Legion. Check it out.
From the preview:
There are Rebel scum to be found on any planet in the galaxy—no world is too remote or inhospitable for them.
