“Star Wars™: Legion players!
We are excited to show you what we’re offering for the upcoming Seasonal Premium Kit, available later this summer. In this kit you’ll find extended art cards of the TX-225 GAVw Occupier and the X-34 Landspeeder. Also included in this kit are plastic extended art versions of these cards and transparent attack dice. Don’t let your troopers down! Control the battlefield with these vehicles and lead your faction to victory.
Contact your favorite local retailer to see when they’ll be running their next event supported by this Seasonal Premium Kit.”
While Luke, Han and soon Sabine headline the popular Rebel lists, there is one woman behind them all: Leia Organa, the bedrock of the Rebel Alliance. She is the best support character available in the game, hands down. The reasons for this are myriad. Among them is Leia’s ability to equip two Command upgrades, so you’ll have plenty of room to add Strict Orders, a relatively new and powerful Command upgrade, to your army. In this article, we’ll explore just how Strict Orders functions in a rebel army, and how it’s especially good on Leia Organa.
Strict Orders is a card avilable in the Jyn Erso expansion. It is a 5 point Command upgrade that says the following:
“When a friendly trooper unit with a faceup order token activates, during its Rally step, it may remove 1 suppression token instead of rolling dice.”
It seems innocuous at first – one suppression token doesn’t seem like much these days in a world of Suppressive weaponry, Dauntless, Compel, Saboteurs and Annihilation Looms. But on the flip side, how many times have games come down to whether or not you can get rid of a single suppression at an opportune time?

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.
“ANNOUNCEMENT: As part of everything that has been going on within the community, Nick and LJ have decided not to renew the legionimpact.com domain. Instead, they’ve asked that I archive the general articles and unit analysis from Impact X on Imperial Discipline, which I’ve done. Gathering Legions will live on as a separate project in the future. While I’m sad to see Impact X go I’m happy that I can preserve the extremely insightful content they created, and have tried to make the distinction clear between their content and my own on my website.”
