The Clone Wars saw the clone armies of the Republic facing off against the robotic forces of the Separatists. But despite one army being made up of clones and the other coming off an industrial assembly line, not every trooper was identical. There were elites, specialists, and more. In this preview, we get a look at two new units coming for Star Wars: Legion that are a step up from the average squad.
Star Wars: Legion
Padme Amidala wasn't your average monarch. She didn't just sit on her throne, occasionally make a speech, and generally stay to herself. She was ready to get out there and fight just like anyone else when the Separatists came calling. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add her to their forces. But not just her, Cad Bane is coming along as well, representing said Separatists. In this preview, we get a little look at what you can expect when they are released.
The Trade Federation has a huge military industrial complex behind it. Their factories are able to pump out droids, weapons, and vehicles at an astounding rate. One of those iconic vehicles is the AAT Battle Tank. It's armed with all manner of weaponry to help the Trade Federation assert itself as a major presence in the Separatist movement. Soon, you'll be able to add this formidable tank to your forces in Star Wars: Legion.
Fantasy Flight is looking to get you edicated about the world of Star Wars: Legion. Sure, you've maybe checked out a rulebook or hovered around while a couple people played a game, but maybe it still wasn't clicking. Well, that's where this deep-dive into the game's mechanics might help. This is the second part in the series looking at the game's mechanics.
19 new releases. There are 19 new releases spread out among the different Fantasy Flight Star Wars minis games that you can now purchase. That's quite a lot. There's things like the new Luke and Vader kits for Star Wars: Legion. Star Wars: Armada has a pair of new huge ships (good to see that game getting some support again). And X-Wing has a bunch of figures, including a bunch of re-releases for the 2nd edition of the game (I'm kind of surprised some of these weren't already available, to be honest...).
Technology advances. When I was young, I had a casette player. Then I had a CD player. Now, I have a phone that's a supercomputer. Well, the same happens in the Star Wars universe. The Battle Droids of old are replaced with newer models. Hence, the B2 Super Battle Droid. Soon, Star Wars: Legion players will be able to add these droids to their forces. Let's take a look at what they bring.
Sure, Star Wars: Legion has been out for a while, but maybe you never really gave it much of a look because you weren't entirely sure how the mechanics worked. You might've checked around, but didn't see anything truly to your liking in explaining the game. Well, Fantasy Flight is here to help. They've posted up an overview of the game so you can know just exactly if it's the game you're looking for.
The Kaminoans created a massive clone army for the Republic to use. But just because they made one clones doesn't mean that all the copies were going to be the same forever. As they went along, they refined their process and the training that the clones would receive, resulting in the Phase II trooper, of which we get a preview here before they make their way to Star Wars: Legion tabletops.
Changing an army's commander can dramatically change how the force plays on the field. Fantasy Flight has announced a pair of new Star Wars: Legion commander expansions. Soon, you'll be able to have Cassian Andor or Iden Versio head your forces into battle. Let's take a look at what's in store.
Fantasy Flight has announced a new expansion set for Star Wars: Legion. Like the downed escape pod, this is a multi-piece set giving you terrain, but also upgrade cards and a pair of new characters that you can add to your forces. So it's a little bit of everything for you. What's it got inside? Let's find out.
The Crashed Escape Pod coming soon for Star Wars: Legion gives players more than simply a bit of terrain to hide behind. It also includes a pair of familiar droid faces to add to your forces. But even more than that, it includes new scenarios for your games. In this preview, we get a look at just what those scenarios look like.
After a pretty huge release week last week from Fantasy Flight, it's a little bit lighter this time around. That's ok by me, as my wallet can use a rest. But, for you Imperial players out there, there is a new Dewback Rider that you can add to your force. Have yourselves a look.
Fantasy Flight Games is constantly looking to refine and update their current game systems, offering new ways for gamers to play. In this instance, they're bringing Star Wars: Legion a new game format. It's the Skirmish format and allows for smaller games on a smaller table. What are the details? Take a look for yourself.
While partially a part of a Terrain Corner feature, the upcoming Crashed Escape Pod Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion also includes a pair of iconic Star Wars characters, C-3PO and R2-D2. They're complete with figures, stat cards for Star Wars: Legion, and even extra upgrades. In this preview, we get a look at just what this dynamic duo is capable of.
Fantasy Flight's got some new Star Wars releases available for you this week. If you're an X-Wing player, there's the 2nd edition version of the C-ROC Cruiser. So, Scum & Villainy gets their huge ship back. Meanwhile, in Legion, they have the Count Dooku and Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansions that you can pick up.
This is quite a release announcement from Fantasy Flight. First off, as you can tell from the Featured Image, the much-anticipated Marvel Champions card game is now available. But if you're wanting something else, there's a bit more going on. There's the new Final Hour stand-alone Arkham Horror game. Or, for you Mansions of Madness players, you can pick up Path of the Serpent. Want some Star Wars: Legion? There's that too with the BARC Speeder and Droideka kits. I told you it was quite an announcement.
A squad of troopers is a great, multi-purpose unit that can go anywhere and do just about anything. However, toss a couple specialists in there and now that same unit can take on even more tasks with greater reliability and skill than before. If you're looking to upgrade your Battle Droid or Clone Trooper units, you'll want to check out the new Upgrade Packs that are coming soon to Star Wars: Legion from Fantasy Flight.
It's a Star Wars fest over at Fantasy Flight. The new Clone Wars box set for Star Wars: Legion is now available, ushering in a new era to the tabletop miniatures game. The starter and two ancillary sets are available. Also for Legion is the new Upgrade Cards pack, along with several battle mats. That's not enough? There's a new Outer Rim game mat as well, plus a new card pack for the Star Wars RPG. I told you there was a lot.
A squad of troopers. They're the basic fighting unit of both the Empire and the Rebellion. But with the addition of even just a single specialist with a specialized weapon or unique training, the overall squad's abilities can be greatly enhanced. In Star Wars: Legion, you'll soon be able to upgrade your units with new specialists. Check out this preview of the two upgrade sets coming soon.
Darth Vader. Just the name alone strikes fear in the hearts of Rebels everywhere. A terror on the battlefield, a new version of Darth Vader will be making its way to Star Wars: Legion soon, eschewing the weight of commanding the army to simply wade into the enemy forces, wiping them out as he goes.
"Crashed escape pod? PB, shouldn't that go in the Terrain Corner?"
If it were just a crashed escape pod piece of terrain, yes, it would. However, Fantasy Flight is giving you more than that in this Star Wars: Legion expansion box. You are also getting figures for C-3PO and R2-D2, along with stat cards for using them both in Rebel as well as Republic forces. Hence, full regular post. Let's take a look.
Characters in Star Wars go through many arcs during thei saga. For example, Luke Skywalker starts the very first movie of the series as a simple farmboy and ends up being the last Jedi. And then the movie series ends and that's all that ever happens. Since characters go through these changes, it only makes sense to have multiple versions of them in Star Wars: Legion. that's why we're getting an Operative version of him soon. In this preview, you can get a peek at what he'll be like.
For many people here in the US, once Gen Con is over, they might feel that the biggest show of the convention season is over. But those over in Europe know better. Essen Spiel is still coming up, and Fantasy Flight will be there with a special, limited edition of Obi-Wan Kenobi for Star Wars: Legion.
The Imperial Army has a Stormtrooper for every type of environment and terrain. So, while we're waiting for the "light drizzle in the park" Troopers, we can still be adding Shoretroopers to our forces for Star Wars: Legion. You can pick up these beach specialists online or down at your LGS now.
How about those Special Editions, y'all? Originally just a static thing in the background, the Dewback got a bit more screen-time in the Special Editions of the original Star Wars trilogy. Soon, you'll be able to add this lumbering lizard to your squads in Star Wars: Legion. Let's take a look at what you'll get.
