Fantasy Flight Games is showing off another preview from the upcoming Imperial Assault game with a look at the Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader expansion packs. Unlike other expansion packs, though, these are included right in the base game (not sure how that doesn’t just make them part of the base game, but there we are, then). You get the sculpted figure, some extra scenarios, and other cards for both the skirmish game and the board game.
From the preview:
Take your place in the Star Wars universe with Imperial Assault, a new miniatures game of tactical combat and thrilling adventure for two to five players! You’ll find two complete games within Imperial Assault: a campaign game, which invites you to join a story that changes based on the outcomes of your missions, and a skirmish game, which allows you to battle head-to-head against a single opponent.
In addition to the massive amount of missions and figures included in the Imperial Assault Core Set, the Luke Skywalker Ally Pack and the Darth Vader Villain Pack are included in the Core Set as an added bonus. Like other Ally Packs and Villain Packs, each of these expansions includes not only a sculpted plastic figure but also new missions and cards for the campaign and skirmish games.
In today’s Imperial Assault preview, we’ll turn to these two figure packs and explore the new missions and powerful abilities they offer to you in both every game.
