Allowing you to field additional units of Phase I Clone Troopers for the Republic and swell your swarms of Separatist B1 Battle Droids, these Unit Expansions are the perfect opportunity to round out your armies and send them into all-out conflict for the fate of the galaxy. With units identical to the ones found in the Clone Wars Core Set, you can take your first steps into building the custom army you have always wanted to lead into the epic clashes of the Clone Wars.
Phase I Clone Troopers Unit Expansion
The first troops to take the field in the Clone Wars, Phase I Clone Troopers represent a new era of galactic warfare. Genetically crafted for battle and outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, Clone Troopers charge into battle on countless worlds to do the job they were made for: defeat the Separatist Alliance and restore order to the galaxy.
Bred from the same genetic template, Phase I Clone Troopers share a bond that cannot be replicated by the Separatist’s B1 Battle Droids. Thanks to the close connection they share with one another and the Jedi that lead them into battle, these troopers have become renowned for their resolve and dedication. They will always have the backs of their fellow troops and will often join together to provide critical fire support to repel a Separatist attack or push one step closer to a critical objective.
The Phase I Clone Troopers Unit Expansion contains a full unit of seven unique, unpainted Phase I Clone Trooper miniatures, identical to the Phase I Clone Troopers included in the Star Wars: Legion Clone Wars Core Set. Five Phase I Clone Troopers wielding DC-15A Blaster Rifles are joined by a Z-6 Phase I Trooper and a DC-15 Phase I Trooper. This expansion also includes a unit card and an assortment of upgrade cards, inviting you to customize your Clone Troopers’ gear to fit your plan.
B1 Battle Droids Unit Expansion
The Republic’s Clone Troopers may be bred for battle, but even the finest soldiers eventually break under the crushing weight of legions of B1 Battle Droids. Despite possessing little cunning or tactical intelligence, these droids march heedlessly forward to crush any resistance through raw attrition alone. Mindlessly loyal and eminently expendable, the Separatist Alliance has few qualms about sacrificing endless waves of B1 Battle Droids to subdue a planet.
While they may not possess the same skills as traditional flesh-and-blood troops, B1 Battle Droids do have a number of features specifically designed to exploit their superior numbers. Unlike their organic counterparts, B1 Battle Droids are interlinked, allowing them to quickly coordinate with one another to form a cohesive army that opposing commanders can only dream of.
The B1 Battle Droids Unit Expansion gives you the chance to supplement your Separatist Alliance forces with even more battle droids. Nine finely detailed, unpainted B1 Battle Droid miniatures, identical to those found in the Star Wars: Legion Clone Wars Core Set, stand ready to form the backbone of your army, including two miniatures carrying heavy weapons. Joining these miniatures are a unit card and a variety of upgrade cards, inviting you to make your own personal refinements to your battle droids.
With the Clone Wars escalating across the galaxy, you’ll need all the troops you can get to match your opponent’s firepower. Reinforce your armies for the battles to come!
