Question: When using the command card Brains and Brawn, can Leia Organa choose an enemy unit as a defender that her weapon does not have range to so that Chewbacca can add his weapon to the attack pool and attack that unit?
Answer: No. Leia must be able to add a weapon to the attack pool in order for the attack to be eligible. If no weapons are added to the attack pool by Leia, the attack does not happen, and therefore Chewbacca cannot add his own weapon.
Question: While Reptilian Rampage is in play during his activation, can Bossk suffer multiple wounds to perform multiple free move actions?
Answer: No. As with all card text that allows an effect to take place “during” a specific window, that effect can only be used or triggered once during that window.
Question: While Entourage cannot be effected by the upgrade card Battle Meditation, can it be effected by the upgrade cards Commanding Presence, Comms Relay, and Long Range Comms?
Answer: Yes. Using the Entourage ability to issue an order is a form of issuing an order.

Question: If Sabine Wren is equipped with the Darksaber and is defending against Darth Vader’s melee attack, does she roll three additional defense dice thanks to her Impervious keyword, even though the Darksaber grants her the Immune: Pierce keyword?
Answer: No. If a unit has both the Impervious and the Immune: Pierce keywords, the Impervious keyword has no effect because Pierce is not being used for that attack.
The galaxy is a dangerous place swarming with deadly troopers and ruthless operatives. Being properly equipped to win your battles is essential for survival. Don’t head into the next skirmish without first arming yourself with the latest Star Wars™: Legion Rules Reference, available now!
This update contains breakdowns of new unit keywords like Coordinate, Detachment, Spur, and Fire Support. You’ll also find an explanation of the creature trooper unit type as well as how poison and shield tokens function.
Included in this Rules Reference are an errata for the Coordinated Fire command card from the Imperial Specialists Personnel Expansion as well as key changes to arming and detonating charge tokens; you can now detonate charges when a unit attacks, moves, or performs an action. Other new additions to existing entries in this update are marked in blue.
Every product that has been released through the upcoming Imperial Shoretroopers and Dewback Rider Unit Expansions are supported by this update. All changes will formally go into effect on May 27th, 2019.
These rules should not only enhance your game experience but also give you the tools to outwit your next opponent on the battlefield. The updated Star Wars: Legion Rules Reference is available to download now.
Question: When issuing orders with the command card An Entire Legion, if Battle Meditation is used to issue an order to a unit that otherwise wouldn’t receive one, is one fewer order issued to an eligible unit? Also, if the command card Sabotaged Communications is also played, is one fewer order issued to an eligible unit?
Answer: Yes, in both cases. Because the errata’d Battle Meditation explicitly says “instead,” to issue an order to a unit that would otherwise not receive an order, a different unit that is eligible cannot receive an order. Similarly, Sabotaged Communications will cause one eligible unit to not receive an order.

Nick Freeman takes us on a bird’s eye view of the recently updated Rules Reference:
Activating: When multiple effects occur at the same timing during a units activation (without pre-arranged resolution timings such as with detonate and standby) the player controlling the activating unit decides the order that effects resolve in. This is a new addition and clears up a lot of confusion around timing issues.
Armor X Keyword: Armor X works in the same way that Armor does, but is a limited keyword instead of unlimited. This gives some granularity and control to the system.
Base Contact: This is a reversal from a previous rule that friendly models could not be base to base with other friendly models in different units. This allows you to gain cover from vehicles and emplacements while ignoring the cover yourself. It also clears up some illegal game-states that could be created under certain circumstances and cleans up and streamlines the rules.
Climb Clamber: While climbing a mini can partially overhang a ledge as long as the mini is stable. This is a reversal on previous reversal… essentially back to where we started.
