New Expansions Announced For Imperial Assault

Some people might’ve thought that since Fantasy Flight came out with Star Wars: Legion, that maybe Imperial Assault would get left behind. It does seem like it’s been a while since the last expansion came out, but that will soon change. Fantasy Flight’s announced the Tyrants of Lothal expansion, as well as several Ally and Villain packs.

Monday Terrain Corner

It’s President’s Day here in the States. That means that many people are off of work. Hey, at least that means clearer roads around here today. I can certainly dig that.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Legends of the Alliance App For Imperial Assault

Games are, by their very nature, competitive. Someone is going to win, in the end. However, some games have all the players working together against the game, itself, instead of against one-another. Imperial Assault wasn’t originally a cooperative game. It was one player as the Light side and one player as the Dark side. Well, with the Legends of the Alliance App, coming soon for the game, you’ll all be able to join up on the same side and fight together.

New Ally And Villain Packs Available For Imperial Assault

One of the most iconic things about the Star Wars universe is the Force. It’s basically what makes the space wizards in the setting work. Many of the main heroes and villains have access to this power, and three are making their way to your Imperial Assault tabletops. You can now get Emperor Palpatine, Darth Maul, and Ahsoka Tano Hero and Villain packs.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Ally And Villain Packs For Star Wars Imperial Assault

The Force is a very influential … umm… force in the Universe. Those who can tap into it gain powers and abilities far beyond a normal person. For Imperial Assault, three new powerful Force users will soon be making their way to your tabletops, two for the Dark Side, one for the Light. In this preview, Fantasy Flight Games gives us a peek at what we can expect.

Photos From Gen Con Day 3

Gen Con this year has been everything I was expecting it to be. Mostly: filled with awesome stuff to see and filled with lots of people! Saturday has always been the busiest day, and yesterday was no exception. And while there was a mildly-noticeable larger crowd, we weren’t all packed in like sardines, for the most part. You could still get around to see all the great booths here at the show. Though taking pictures was sometimes difficult. But take them I did. And here they are for you to see.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Campaign from Heart of the Empire

Imperial Assault can be played two ways. You can just get your forces together and battle against your opponent as a skirmish game, or you can have more of a board-game feel and go with the Campaign Mode. Well, if you choose to go the latter, you’ll be excited to know that a new campaign is coming in the Heart of the Empire expansion. And, we get a preview of it here.

Monday Terrain Corner

It’s back into the office for most of us. Hopefully your weekend went well. I didn’t get any tabletop gaming in, but I did have a great time with a friend I’d not seen in a bit. So I can’t really complain. Also got a ton done around the apartment. But next week there will possibly be gaming. So, better make sure my gaming table looks as good as possible.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Survival Range Releases From Antenociti’s Workshop, Dust Town: Fantasy Gaming Mat Available from Pwork Wargames, Fantasy Flight Games Releases Swamps of Nal Hutta Map for Imperial Assault, and British Street Items Available from Warlord Games.

New Ally and Villain Packs Available For Imperial Assault

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a couple new expansions planned for Imperial Assault. But that’s the future. In the here and now, though, if you want some new figures, there’s a trio of Hero and Villain packs now available.

Fantasy Flight Announces New Releases For Imperial Assault

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a couple new expansions coming out for Imperial Assault. There’s a new big-box expansion called Heart of the Empire, which takes players to Coruscant, the capital of the Empire. As is usual, with the big box comes several smaller hero and villain expansions. There’ll be several of those, too, bringing you characters like The Emperor, Ahsoka Tano, and fan-favorite Darth Maul.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack for Imperial Assault

The Rebel Alliance is always looking for more people to join the cause. They don’t have the rigid structure and industrial capabilities like the Empire, and so each member of the Rebel Alliance must be extra resourceful and capable. That’s certainly the case with Hera Syndulla. And don’t forget her droid, C1-10P. You can soon add them to your games of Imperial Assault, as they’ve got an Ally Pack coming out. Take a look.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Jawa Scavenger For Imperial Assault

“Finder’s keepers.” It’s basically the Jawa motto. Certainly, if they come across some droids out in the desert, they’re going to claim them as their own. And soon, that “what’s yours is mine and what’s mine is mine” attitude can make its way to your Imperial Assault games with the Jawa Scavenger.

Monday Terrain Corner

Back in the office on Monday and Devo’s telling me about workin’ in a coal mine. Now, obviously, running TGN is nothing like actually being in a coal mine. First, I’m at a desk, typing news stories instead of swinging a pick-axe. Next, I’m in very little danger of getting Black Lung. Third, while I’m sure many coal miners do enjoy what they do, it’s probably not the same extent that I enjoy what I do. But Mondays are still Mondays. Let’s try and think about a weekend of gaming ahead, and making those gaming tables looking as good as possible, eh?

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Jabba’s Palace Map Available For Imperial Assault and Fat Dragon Games Offers Free 3D Models With Newsletter.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack for Imperial Assault

These aren’t just not the droids you’re looking for, you want to make sure that they’re not the droids that are looking for you. While they might outwardly look like C-3P0 and R2-D2, don’t expect BT-1 and 0-0-0 to help you overthrow oppressive regimes. They’re going to be making their way to Imperial Assault and bringing all sorts of mayhem with them.

Monday Terrain Corner

Did you see that ludicrous display last night?
I know a lot of people did.
Another American Football season is in the books. Time to look forward to next year. Also time to look ahead to next weekend and hopefully some more gaming. And if you’re gaming, you want your gaming tables to look good. And that’s what we’re here to help with today.

In the Terrain Corner we have: New Anchorhead Cantina Playmat Available For Imperial Assault, New Snow Field Terrain Map From Heroic Maps, and Roads of War Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces New Figure Packs for Imperial Assault

Droids are an everyday part of the Star Wars world. They’re basically everywhere, filling in roles in all parts of life. As such, they should also be pretty common in the various games made about the universe. And it’s not just the more well-known ones such as R2-D2 and C-3PO, either. With that, Fantasy Flight Games has a couple droid-centric figure packs coming out for Imperial Assault.

New Imperial Assault, XCOM Releases Available From Fantasy Flight Games

Fantasy Flight has some expansions available for some of their popular board games. Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or more into an Earth-centered sci-fi world in the form of XCOM, there’s some new releases that will change how you play the game.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Jabba the Hutt For Imperial Assault

One of the most notorious crime lords in the galaxy, Jabba the Hutt has a lot of power an influence over the actions of others. With his vast wealth and resources, he can afford to put out large bounties on anyone that crosses him. He can also afford to pay for the best bodyguards around. Other characters who live on the fringes of society will do what they can to impress Jabba in the hopes of joining in with his criminal organization, and hopefully stay on his good graces. That’s the sort of stuff Jabba also does in Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Captain Terro For Imperial Assault

You know, I’m not really sure that a dewback really looks like all that great a way to get around a desert area. They aren’t all that fast. They don’t look that comfortable to ride (you think you get bow-legged riding a horse). And I bet they eat a lot. But, hey, who am I to question how the Empire chooses to have their troopers get around? And soon you’ll have your own dewback-riding trooper for your games of Imperial Assault.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Alliance Rangers For Imperial Assault

The ability to disrupt enemy actions via well-placed firepower is crucial in winning a conflict. The Rebel Alliance knows that they’re outnumbered and running behind the Empire in terms of technology, but they make up for it in dedication and training. And Alliance Rangers are able to increase the odds of winning by taking out enemy officers or other linchpin parts of the enemy. Soon, you’ll be able to add these force multiplier figures to your games of Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Luke Skywalker Ally Pack For Imperial Assault

When Luke Skywalker entered the domain of Jabba the Hutt on a rescue mission, it seemed that up to that point, everything had been going wrong. Han was still in carbonite. Leia had been captured, along with Chewie. The pair of droids were being used by the gang leader as his personal servants. But, in reality, it was all just different steps in the plan… perhaps a rather haphazard plan that relied on a lot of unlikely things to happen, but a plan nonetheless. And soon you’ll be able to bring this Jedi to your tabletops in Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Mercenaries and Imperials From Jabba’s Realm

Jabba the Hutt operated outside the realm of the law, be it the crushing restrictions of the Empire or the more open rule employed by the Rebellion. He was a gangster, after all. He did his own thing, surrounding himself with his own type in order to rule his criminal empire. So, in Jabba’s Realm, the new expansion coming for Imperial Assault, there’s plenty of Mercenary models. That’s not to say there aren’t Imperials as well, mind you.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Heroes From Jabba’s Realm For Imperial Assault

Tattooine’s just not all that great a planet, it would seem. At least, nobody that comes from there seems to be all that happy about it. It’s not got the most glowing endorsements from its long-time residents. But there are some shining lights in the rough that is the various hives of scum and villainy. It’s a look at those heroes that we get in today’s preview from the upcoming Jabba’s Realm expansion for Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Recent Announcements

So, over the weekend, many companies had a lot of announcements about games and expansions they’re coming out with. I was able to get photos of many of them. Here, now that Gen Con’s over, it’s time to post up the website updates for many of them. Fantasy Flight Games certainly had a lot to talk about. They’ve got a new expansion for the XCOM board game, a bunch of things coming out for Imperial Assault, as well as the next wave of ships for Star Wars Armada.

Gen Con Day 3 Photos

I swear this show is just screaming by this year. It’s already the end of Day 3. Today will be the last day for Gen Con 2016. As usual for Gen Con Saturday, it was a whirlwind of activity. There was roaming the hall, taking photos most of the morning and early afternoon. Then there was the media event in the CMON booth. Expect a few more posts about games from that in the morning. My brain’s just too fried to do much more than get you a recap of the photos I posted earlier today.

Monday Terrain Corner

I hope your Monday is going along well. It’s kind of a hot one here in Atlanta. Even inside the office it’s not exactly comfortable. But it’s ok. I’ll make it through. Just gotta focus on one post at a time. And currently, that post is the Terrain Corner for today.

This time around we have: New Cult Village Buildings Range From Pigeon Guard Games, New ITC Terrain: Compact Urban Building, New Goals Unlocked And Added For Maze of the Dead Kickstarter, New Playmats Available For Imperial Assault, Eslo Terrain: July New Releases & 15th Year Anniversary Offer for a Longer Time, and Cyber City: Pwork Wargames Sci-Fi Gaming Mat Now Available.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Obi-Wan For Imperial Assault

In the Hero’s Journey, you’ll usually have the old sage who will impart wisdom on the young upstart and then, usually, they’ll get killed off. There’s no better example of that type of character than Obi-Wan Kenobi. The old Jedi who first pushed Luke Skywalker along the path to becoming a Jedi Knight (just like Luke’s father). Soon he’ll be coming to your games of Imperial Assault. Hopefully, (if you’re the Rebel player) he’ll last longer than just halfway through the game.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Greedo For Imperial Assault

Oota goota TGN reader?
I try not to editorialize about the new releases and previews from companies, but man… I love this preview from Fantasy Flight, taking a look at the Greedo expansion coming out for Imperial Assault.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Grand Inquisitor For Imperial Assault

The Jedi Order had been around for quite a long time before the Emperor decided, “well, that’s enough of that” and started working at getting rid of them all. Sure, he got a lot of them right away with Order 66, but remnants of the Jedi Order were all over (galaxies are pretty big places, after all). But he couldn’t just be running off on his own to take care of it. There were more important things to do. So he took a fallen Jedi and turned him into his Grand Inquisitor. Now, that Grand Inquisitor is making his way to the tabletops of Imperial Assault.
Continue reading

Bossk and ISB Infiltrators Previewed for Imperial Assault

It’s two, two, two previews in one! Fantasy Flight gives us a look at a pair of Villain Packs for Imperial Assault with a preview of both Bossk and the ISB Infiltrators. These figure sets couldn’t be much more different from one-another. On one hand, you’ve got a set of spies. On the other, you’ve got a Trandoshan with a big gun who isn’t afraid to use it.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Agent Blaise For Imperial Assault

Gee. Another day, another Imperial Assault preview from Fantasy Flight Games. That’s not a complaint, mind you. It just goes to show how much cool stuff they have planned for the game. This time around it’s Agent Blaise, Imperial scout and master interrogator. If you need someone to get in there and figure out what your opponent is doing, you can’t find a better figure than Blaise.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews New Ally And Villain Packs for Imperial Assault

It would seem as though The Bespin Gambit isn’t the only thing on the minds of Fantasy Flight Games when it comes to Imperial Assault. Today they’re showing off a trio of new expansion packs, two of which bring rather iconic characters to your gaming table. They’re the Obi-Wan Kenobi Ally Pack, the Grand Inquisitor Villain Pack, and the Greedo Villain Pack.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Mercenaries For The Bespin Gambit

While both side of the Galactic Civil War were happy to hire people to help the cause (hey, that’s how Han Solo got started in things), it’s mostly associated with the Empire. Well, The Bespin Gambit expansion for Imperial Assault has several Mercenary figures available in it. So no matter what side your on, if you want a little boost to your army, you could use them.
Continue reading

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Lando For Imperial Assault

With Star Ware you just about have to have Bespin. If you have Bespin you just have to have Lando. Well, Imperial Assault is headed to Bespin. So that means Imperial Assault is going to have a Lando. That’s what we get a preview of today (they couldn’t put all the Star Wars stuff back on the 4th).
