Fantasy Flight Previews Leia Organa Commander Expansion For Star Wars: Legion

While Luke Skywalker might be the Rebellion's most famous battlefield hero, its greatest leader was no doubt Leia Organa. From bringing the Death Star plans to Obi-Wan, to coordinating the evacuation of Hoth, to helping with the strike team at the shield generator and beyond, Leia is a strong and capable commander, with a variety of skills at her disposal. And soon, she'll be making her way to your Star Wars: Legion tabletops. Check out a preview here.




From the post:

As the second Rebel Alliance commander released for Star Wars: Legion, Leia Organa gives you more flexibility when building your Rebel army. She can be used as an alternative to Luke Skywalker, or, if you want to take advantage of both Luke’s blossoming Force abilities and Leia’s inspiring presence in battle, you could have them work side-by-side.

No matter what you choose, Leia Organa brings her own style to the unsung infantry battles of the Star Wars galaxy. She might not be as formidable a warrior as Luke, but she is more than capable in a fight. Equally skilled in martial arts as she is with a blaster, Leia Organa notably rolls the same pool of three black attack dice for both melee and ranged attacks. Her ranged attacks are slightly more potent, however, thanks to Leia’s Sharpshooter 2 ability reducing her target's cover and her Defender Sporting Blaster piercing through enemy armor to cancel one of the defender’s dodge results.
