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.

The B1 Battle Droids Unit Expansion gives you the chance to supplement your Separatist Alliance forces with even more battle droids. Nine unpainted and finely-sculpted 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.

Once you’ve supplemented your armies with fresh recruits, you can further enhance them with the addition of upgrade cards. Each upgrade unlocks new tactical possibilities for your army, giving you the freedom to customize your units to meet your individual preferences.

While every Unit Expansion contains a variety of upgrade cards that help enhance that particular unit’s natural abilities, the Upgrade Card Pack conveniently puts a vast library of upgrade cards at your fingertips no matter which faction you play. Bringing together sixty neutral upgrade cards originally found in expansions through the Clone Wars Core Set, this pack gives you access to a wide range of upgrades that invite you to fine-tune your units as you see fit and build the Star Wars army that best fits your strategy.

What We Learned From the FFG Live Ask Me Anything

Screen Shot 2019-10-01 at 11.35.20 PM.png

I did a quick write-up of things I found interesting during today’s FFG Live: Ask Me Anything with Alex and Luke:

-The Clone Wars Core Set will release worldwide on Oct 18th
-The Card Packs will release on Oct. 18th
-No release date for Dewbacks but will release ASAP
-More Competitive Battle Cards will be added to the game “Sooner than later”
-We may eventually get custom commanders
-We will see more cross faction units
-We will most likely see Commander Coby and all “popular characters” added to the game; at least that’s the goal
-Phase 1 Clone Troopers feature the furthest they could push PVC plastic. Phase 2 Clone Troopers will be hard plastic, but will not be as customizable as the Phase 1s, but as Legion continues to grow with hard plastic there will be some “really cool figures in the near future” and you’ll be able to “customize them in a lot of cool ways”
-They are moving away from 1 for 1 releases and moving towards more thematic releases, e.i. themes build on movies, TV shows, certain battles, locations, different media, fridge elements that don’t fit anywhere else
-They will consider all possible factions including Scum and Villainy. They hinted that The Mandalorian could help flesh that faction out
-Subfactions are still on the table, but it sounds like the game needs to grow more to warrant them Continue reading →

Clone Wars Core Set Release Date Again Pushed Back

Sources are telling us that the Clone Wars Core Set has been pushed back from its recently announced release date of Oct 4th.

The Oct 4th date was already a delayed date as the Clone Wars Core Set was previously expected to release Mid to Late September. There are many rumors to the reason for these delays but none have been confirmed.

The online gaming store Miniature Market preemptively shipped some Core Sets to customers who preordered.

The Dewback, that were supposed to release with the Shoretrooper expansion but due to a packaging error were also delayed, has yet to receive a confirmed release date.

Stay tuned for updates on this developing story.

Clone Wars Core Set and Expansions Release Date Has Been Announced

The Fantasy Flight Games’ Community Coordinator, Matt Holland, announced in a Facebook post on the Star Wars Legion fan page that the long awaited (and slightly delayed) Clone Wars Core Set, along with two of its expansions, will be released October 5th.

Also in the posted he announced that the Upgrade Card Pack will also release on that date.

This is great news as it was recently announced that the Core Set, which originally had a street date of Q3, was being delayed to early Q4. October 4th is only two weeks after the speculated date of September 20th and only 4 days into Q4.

The Imperial Shoretroopers Unit Expansion is Available Now

Selected for rotational duty from exceptional Stormtrooper squads, Imperial Shoretroopers are trained not only in tropical environment operations, but also in entrenched warfare. Often assigned to important bases such as the Imperial security facility on Scarif, Shoretroopers use their expertise and equipment to counter Rebel ambushes and ensure Imperial secrets remain safe. 

Within the Imperial Shoretroopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find seven unique, unpainted Imperial Shoretrooper miniatures to add to your Star Wars™: Legion collection. Five of these troopers are armed with E-22 blaster rifles while a Shoretrooper equipped with a T-21B targeting rifle is ready to deal extra damage from long range. But if you’re truly looking to keep enemy units from escaping with sensitive information, a DF-90 Mortar Trooper can be added to your army as a detachment from the rest of your Shoretroopers. Rounding out this expansion are two unit cards, five upgrade cards to fully kit out your Shoretroopers, and all the tokens you need to deploy them to any battle.
