Star Wars: Legion


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.

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.

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.

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.

Your standard Stormtrooper might not know how to install a toilet main, but they do know everything about killing and white uniforms. But when there's a need for more specialized troops, the Empire is ready to deploy those at a moment's notice. Beach landings have been an important part of warfare forever, and to keep the Empire's shorelines safe, tehre's the Shoretroopers. Soon, they'll be making their way to Star Wars: Legion tabletops. Take yourself a look.

Man, it's hard to believe that Gen Con is more than a week over with already. Seems like I was just there yesterday (for reference, I wasn't and am not making a silly pun now).

Luke vs. Darth Vader. It's the classic confrontation that surrounds the middle of the Star Wars saga. Arguably the most iconic characters in the series, they already have representations in Star Wars: Legion.

Sure, it's summer here in the US, but those south of the equator are right in the middle of winter. They've got their heavy coats on and dealing with the harsh conditions of cold, wind, and snow (or maybe not, but they are for the sake of this intro). In such conditions, I bet they wish they had a nice tauntaun to ride around on. But even if they don't actually exist, your little mans will be able to ride them into battle with the Tauntaun Riders set for Star Wars: Legion. We get a preview of them here. No word yet on how the figures smell.

For the Rebel Alliance, every fight is a desperate one against the odds. Those that fight often have had many close calls and near-misses in combat before.
