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.

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.

In their place, the Rebels turned to creatures naturally suited to roaming the windswept plains of Hoth: Tauntauns.

These sure-footed snow lizards can swiftly navigate the treacherous environments common to the backwater planets where the Alliance hides its bases, making Tauntauns perfect for patrol duty around Echo Base and beyond. Soon, you’ll be able to make your Rebel armies even more mobile with the Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion! Continue reading →
