Preview the Shoretroopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

“Deploy the garrison!”
   —Director Orson Krennic, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The Imperial Stormtrooper Corps prepares its troops to do battle on any planet under any conditions. No matter how prepared they are, however, these general-purpose soldiers are no replacement for the Empire’s many troops trained to fight in specific environments. The beaches of Imperial-controlled planets are particularly vulnerable, with miles of coastline that could serve as landing zones for Rebel incursions.

Soon, your Imperial armies will be better equipped to protect Imperial installations on these planets with the Imperial Shoretroopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Within this expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add two new corps units to your Imperial war machine. Five unpainted, finely detailed Shoretrooper miniatures carrying E-22 blaster rifles stand ready to repel any Rebel advance. Meanwhile, a T-21B Trooper can pick off any remaining enemy troops from a distance.

For the stoutest defense possible, though, you’ll want to deploy a DF-90 Mortar Trooper as a detachment from your Shoretroopers. Launching volleys of suppressive fire from long distance, this trooper provides all the stopping power you’ll ever need. Finally, five upgrade cards invite you to outfit your Shoretroopers with the weapons, training, and gear to prepare for any situation.

Ever Vigilant

While few Imperial garrisons are located on tropical planets with coastlines, the ones that are—such as the security complex on Scarif—are vital to securing the Empire’s interests across the galaxy. As a result, Shoretroopers and their specialized training play a vital role in Imperial attack groups on a number of planets.

Shoretroopers immediately distinguish themselves from other Imperial corps units in terms of both weaponry and training. Not only do their E-22 blaster rifles pack more of a punch than their E-11 counterparts used by both Stormtroopers and Snowtroopers, Shoretroopers begin identifying targets as soon as they are issued orders. As a result, they can be relied upon to make accurate shots while locking down large swathes of the battlefield, especially if they’ve been trained to go on Overwatch.

The E-22 gives the Shoretroopers the means to repel any Rebel attack, but superior firepower alone may not be enough in the face of a full-scale invasion. In these cases, reinforcements can bolster their ranks and add useful options to their arsenal. Assigning another Shoretrooper to your squad makes it even more likely to fend off an offensive push. A T-21B Trooper, on the other hand, can target enemy units at long range, thinning their ranks before they come within range of the rest of the squad’s E-22s.

When it comes to defending the Empire’s most precious secrets on the beaches and coastlines of a planet, blasters are only one tool available to Imperial Shoretroopers. For maximum stopping power, they turn to DF-90 Mortar Troopers to hit marauding forces from a distance. These mortar troops operate as autonomous corps units, but they can only be deployed as detachments from a corresponding unit of Imperial Shoretroopers. But this isn’t the only connection they share. Shoretroopers can coordinate with DF-90 Mortar Troopers or another emplacement trooper to guarantee everyone has orders and is ready to activate at a moment’s notice.

Deploying at speed-1 from the unit leader of its corresponding Shoretroopers unit, the fire from a DF-90 Mortar Trooper does much more than simply eliminate targets. Having mortars rain down on them rattles enemy units, slowing their advance and forcing them to carefully choose when to attack and when to continue forward into more fire. If concentrated enough, this suppressive fire can eventually cause an enemy to panic and run for the nearest board edge.

Despite these advantages, the DF-90 is a cumbersome weapon to carry across the battlefield, limiting its effectiveness when it needs to be on the move. Fortunately, it can easily be repositioned once its set up, ensuring that it can fire no matter where the enemy is coming from. Best of all, there’s no need for the DF-90 to fire on its own. It can lend its power to another friendly unit’s ranged attack, making this strike all the more deadly. With such a long range, the DF-90 works particularly well when it combines its shot with a T-21B Trooper to create an suppressive attack that can also critically damage its target.

Tight Security

The Empire has troops trained for every environment and situation. But when it needs to protect its most vital secrets, it turns to the expertise of a select few: Imperial Shoretroopers.

Announcing the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

“This isn’t gonna be easy.”
   —Leia Organa, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

As outposts and data centers, Imperial bunkers play a pivotal role in securing the Empire’s reign over the galaxy. Found on Imperial-controlled planets such as Scarif and the forest moon of Endor, these bunkers keep some of the Empire’s most vital military secrets and command centers safe. Soon, one of these bunkers can be a flashpoint in your own battles across the Star Wars galaxy. Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Whether protecting what lies within, or fighting to extract vital information, any battle fought over a bunker could stand as a turning point in the war and the Imperial bunker miniature and six modular computer terminal miniatures you find in this expansion are sure to become a focal point of your battles. Not only does this unpainted, finely detailed miniature enhance any battlefield with a piece of thematic Star Wars terrain, six new battle cards can make it the centerpiece of an epic, two-act scenario that sees one side desperately attempting to disable the bunker while the other mounts a valiant defense.

Read on for more information on the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion!

Heavy Fortifications

The Empire has many secrets to protect and—no matter where in the galaxy they are kept—they are usually found sealed behind the doors of a fortified Imperial bunker. This makes these bunkers ripe targets for Rebel raids and the Imperial bunker in this Battlefield Expansion is sure to play a large role in any battle that takes place in the area surrounding it. 

Whatever your objective, the bunker is more than just another piece of terrain. Not only can the its door be turned around to display an alternate design, it can be removed altogether, allowing your battles to spill into the interior. Once there, your troops can fight amongst six modular computer terminals that can be arranged however you see fit. Alternatively, these terminals can be placed in the bunker or anywhere on the battlefield to bring your objectives to life.

While the Imperial bunker can be easily incorporated into the fabric of any Star Wars: Legion battle, the secrets it contains are likely to be of value to both sides and the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion gives you the power to make it the central focus of a new, two part battle. Six battle cards put the bunker at the very center of the battlefield, setting the stage with unique deployments, objectives, and conditions that give both sides different objectives to complete.

This scenario begins with the red player embarking on a valiant Rescue Mission to free some of their captured comrades-in-arms held inside the bunker. The Prisoners are well defended behind the bunker’s heavy blast door and the barricades that guard its entrance, but the red player does have an advantage: The total points of their army can equal up to 900 points. What’s more, they have the element of surprise and can quickly move towards the bunker.

This advantage quickly dissipates as the second act opens, however. Alterted to the enemy presence, the blue player has the bunker Surrounded and secured. With their prisoners recovered, it is now up to the red player to find a way to somehow Disable the Bunkerby planting and detonating objective tokens inside it. But this will be no easy task. The bunker is a heavily Defended Fortification  and the red player no longer has the element of surprise. As a result, trooper units the blue player has inside the bunker can spend their activation broadcasting tactical information to friendly units.  

With a beautiful new miniature to add to your battlefields and a unique new scenario, the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion adds even more variety to your games of Star Wars: Legion!

     

Breach the Bunker

There’s no telling what secrets could be hidden away in an Imperial bunker. You can battle for control of these secrets when the Imperial Bunker Battlefield Expansion is released in the fourth quarter of 2019!

Enhance your battlefield with your own Imperial Bunker, available now for pre-order from your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping in the continental United States here

Announcing Four Upgrade Expansions for Star Wars: Legion

“Stormtroopers? Here? We’re in danger!”
   —C-3PO, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

From the iconic E-11 blaster rifle carried by Imperial Stormtroopers to the E-5 blaster rifles wielded by the Separatist Alliance’s legions of battle droids, each Star Wars™: Legion faction has its own signature weapons they bring to the ground battles of the Star Wars galaxy. But select troopers also bring a range of other weapons and skills to their squads and soon you’ll have more options than ever to move your corps units beyond standard issue.

Announcing Six Clone Wars-era Expansions for Star Wars: Legion

Though they may differ ideologically, the major powers behind the Clone Wars are remarkably similar when it comes to filling out their armies. Rather than round out their ranks with fresh-faced recruits, both the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance turn to soldiers who are made rather than born. This manufactured might helps them wage war on a galactic scale, and now more troops, vehicles and leaders are on their way to lend their strength to this conflict.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce six new Clone Wars-era expansions for Star Wars™: Legion

Whether you focus on bringing down your foes with superior training and tactical flexibility as the Republic or crushing your enemies with fine-tuned machines of war as the Separatists, these expansions add powerful new options to each faction’s arsenal. Featuring additional miniatures to add to your collection, as well as new weapon upgrades and command cards, these units have something to contribute in every phase of battle.
