While most iconically riding around on their Speeder Bikes, the Scout Troopers in Star Wars are just as capable on foot, infiltrating enemy positions, scouting enemy formations, and taking out vital targets at range with precision accuracy. In this preview for Star Wars: Legion, we get a look at the Scout Trooper unit and what various things they bring to your games.
From the post:
The Galactic Empire has the numbers to simply roll over opposition, crushing dissent under the boots of its platoons of Stormtroopers. These troops are perfect for engaging Rebel armies in open battle, striking fear into the hearts of those who would oppose the Empire.
But on planets with dense forests or tightly-packed urban sprawls, the numerical advantage provided by Stormtroopers becomes much less pronounced. To gain a foothold on these worlds, the Empire needs troops who can adapt to the evolving situation on the ground and remain effective in any situation. Soon, you’ll be able to give your Imperial armies this much-needed flexibility with the Scout Troopers Unit Expansionfor Star Wars™: Legion.
Inside the Scout Troopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add Scout Troopers to your Imperial army, including seven easily assembled, unpainted Scout Trooper miniatures and five upgrade cards. Employing a variety of special issue weapons, these special forces troops bring a new level of deadliness to your Imperial forces, and today, we’ll take a closer look at the many ways you can take advantage of their skills on the field!
