Bothan Report: Director Orson Krennic Commander Expansion

One of the most exciting aspects of Rogue One was the introduction of a new villain to grace the screen alongside established characters like Darth Vader and Grand Moff Tarkin. While not a major influence in the overall Galactic Civil war he nonetheless gave us a memorable amount of screen time thanks to the brilliant acting of Ben Mendelsohn. As far as Star Wars Legion goes I am doubly excited to get a commander on my table that isn’t names , Darth Vader, Palpatine or Veers.

Krennic just looks bad ass and his white cloak and uniform is very striking for an Imperial Commander. Throw in some Death Troopers alongside him and you have a very intimidating new addition to your Imperial Army in Star Wars Legion.

Stat Card

Krennic is a 90 point “Complete” unit in so much as you don’t need to equip him with any of his weapons. Not only that but Entourage gives him an edge when you recruit the Deathtroopers into your army build. I think he will add a great visual appeal to your Imperial army with his color palette offering a striking contrast to the tabletop in most games ( Unless your playing on Hoth). As with most hero/villain characters he converts defensive and offensive surges and has enough health to take a few shots without slowing down. The only concern I have is his less than charismatic Morale score (2) that isn’t going to do much to keep his troops from running away if the battle goes bad.
