While, in the movies, Stormtroopers might just be the faceless cannon fodder that gets fed into the blaster fire of the rebels, they actually were an elite fighting force. Trained in various tactics and equipped well by the Empire, they were something to be feared on the battlefield. Fantasy Flight has posted up a preview of the Stormtrooper Unit Expansion pack for the upcoming Star Wars: Legion minis game. Check it out.
From the post:
Across the planetary systems ruled by the Galactic Empire, few sights are more imposing than the gleaming white armor of an Imperial stormtrooper. As elite soldiers who have received the highest level of combat training, stormtroopers form the backbone of the Imperial Military, and their loyalty to the Emperor and their commanders is unshakable. In the era of the Galactic Civil War, stormtroopers are deployed across the galaxy to keep the peace, stamping out sedition and uprisings before they can take root. Soon, you’ll be able to bring more squads of stormtroopers to your games of Star Wars™: Legion with the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion!
Inside the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find seven unpainted, easily assembled Stormtrooper miniatures, along with the cards and tokens that you need to add this new squad of Stormtroopers to your army. The Stormtroopers Unit Expansion will be released at the same time as the Star Wars: Legion Core Set and seven other expansions—you can pre-order your copies at your local retailer or online through our webstore today!
