Fantasy Flight Previews Dewback and Shoretrooper Packs for Star Wars: Legion

Sand.

It's abrasive. It gets everywhere. It's gotta get into the suits for both the Dewback Rider and the Shoretroopers. But hey, they have a job to protect the Empire against the Rebels. And soon, they'll be making their way to your Star Wars: Legion tabletops. Fantasy Flight has posted up previews of these two units for you.

The Galactic Empire rules over countless worlds, each boasting its own unique flora, fauna, and terrain. Rather than adapt their military vehicles to the conditions of every individual world, Imperial commanders commonly prefer to use local creatures to support their operations. Now, one of the most iconic creatures from the Star Wars saga is on its way to bolster your Imperial forces.

Fantasy Flight Games is excited to announce the Dewback Rider Unit Expansionfor Star Wars™: Legion!

Able to survive extreme temperatures, these mighty reptilian creatures are the perfect complement to Imperial troopers during their patrols. Within this expansion, you’ll find an unpainted, beautifully detailed Dewback miniature featuring a Sandtrooper rider with four distinct customization options: your Dewback Rider can be built carrying the standard shock prod, or you can equip them with three different weapons.

On top of the ability to customize the look of your Dewback Rider, this Unit Expansion gives you plenty of ways to tweak how this unit operates in the thick of battle. Six upgrade cards accompany the miniature, letting you modify its armament, training, or the comms systems it carries into battle. Finally, a unit card  and a handful of tokens round out this expansion, giving you everything you need to deploy it as a support unit for your Imperial armies.

The Empire has many secrets to protect. While an assignment to the tropical planet of Scarif may seem pleasant to soldiers stationed in harsher climes, protecting these countless secrets is a task that requires constant vigilance. Now, new Imperial troops are on their way to ensure no Rebel breaches Imperial security.

Specially trained to comb beaches and bunkers for any sign of Rebel infiltration, Shoretroopers are often assigned to important bases where secrecy is of the utmost importance. Within this expansion, you’ll find seven unique, unpainted Imperial Shoretrooper miniatures to add to your Star Wars: Legion collection. Five of these troopers are armed with E-22 blaster rifles, while a Shoretrooper equipped with a T-21B targeting rifle is ready to deal extra damage from long range.

But if you’re truly looking to keep enemy units from escaping with the sensitive information, a DF-90 Mortar Trooper can be added to your army as a detachment from the rest of your Shoretroopers. Rounding out this expansion are two unit cards, five upgrade cards to fully kit out your Shoretroopers, and all the tokens you need to deploy them to any battle.
