Announcing Two Clone Wars-Era Paint Sets for Star Wars: Legion

The Clone Wars have come to Star Wars™: Legion, letting you command the forces of the Galactic Republic or the Separatist Alliance in thrilling infantry battles across the Star Wars™ galaxy. With the Clone Wars Core Set and expansions like the Phase I Clone Troopers Unit Expansion and the Droidekas Unit Expansion, you can assemble the Clone Wars-era army you’ve always wanted to lead. Soon, you’ll have the chance to put your personal stamp on your armies with beautiful, thematic colors.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two new paint sets for Star Wars: Legion:

Whether you’re painting legions of B1 Battle Droids or heroes like Obi-Wan Kenobi, these paint sets contain all the essential colors to depict the troopers and vehicles of the Clone Wars. Each set includes ten paints that help you bring your Clone Wars-era units to life in rich, thematic color, making them the perfect entry point for the beginning miniatures painter.

Show Your True Colors

The units of both the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance are defined by their detailed colors, and these paint sets give you the tools you need to give them a distinct look, whether you want to paint your minis as movie-accurate representations or invent color schemes of your own. The paints and washes in these provide new painters with a comprehensive selection of colors to paint their faction of choice. Experienced painters, meanwhile, can supplement their paint supply with colors carefully selected to match iconic Clone Wars units.

Those looking to deploy the Grand Army of the Republic to the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion will find everything they need in the Republic Paint Set. Ten colors like Kamino Stormclouds and Christophis Crystal give you the tools you need to paint the Republic’s clone troopers and Jedi generals alike. Once you’ve applied the colors, a wash and a gloss varnish help add rich depths of shading and a finishing touch to Republic miniatures.

If you take command of the Separatist Alliance’s forces, however, the Separatist Paint Set gives you a foundation to put your own touches on your army. This set adds ten colors such as Sensor Silver and Separatist Blue to your collection, including two washes for adding rich shading to the troopers and vehicles of the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

Build Your Army

The forces of the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance stand on the brink of war. Make these armies your own with these paint sets for Star Wars: Legion! Need tips on painting your Star Wars: Legion miniatures? Check out a tutorial using these paints on our YouTube channel here!

“What a desolate place this is.”
   –C-3PO, Star Wars: A New Hope

Despite not being designed for combat, R2-D2 and C-3PO have a surprising amount of experience on the battlefield. From Geonosis to Endor, these droids have played a critical role in key battles for both the Galactic Republic and the Rebel Alliance.

Carrying this vital intelligence across Tatooine and into the depths of the Death Star itself, the droids went on a journey that changed the fate of the Star Wars™ galaxy forever. Soon, you’ll be able to capture the excitement of this adventure with the Crashed Escape Pod Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion! Continue reading →

“I don’t know what all this trouble is about, but I’m sure it must be your fault.”

   –C-3PO, Star Wars: A New Hope

But sometimes droids transcend their programming, using their many skills to help their allies in wholly unexpected ways. Such is the case with R2-D2 and C-3PO.
