Rebel Troopers are the heart of the Rebellion, they are the front line skirmishers fighting to break the unjust tyranny of the Empire around the galaxy. In Star Wars: Legion Rebel Troopers are the Rebels first corps unit option.

Impact X: Average Trooper Analysis

I intend for a major portion of this site to be dedicated to the analysis and discussion of individual cards (units and upgrades) and how and when to use them.
