Announcing the Vital Assets Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

“I choose to live for my people.”
   —Riyo Chuchi, Star Wars: The Clone Wars

The battles of the Star Wars galaxy are rarely fought simply to gain new territory. No matter if they fight in the Clone Wars or the Galactic Civil War, the soldiers of these conflicts are called to serve in many types of missions, from tense hostage exchanges to payload deliveries to bombing runs. Soon, you’ll be able to send your troops into even more varied engagements. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the Vital Assets Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Wherever the battle rages, this pack adds new options to expand the scope of your Star Wars: Legion games. With sixteen finely sculpted battlefield objective miniatures as well as new battle, hostage, and supply cards, this expansion contains everything you need to enhance your battlefield and add new dimensions to your battles in a galaxy far, far away.

Defining the Battlefield

Your Star Wars: Legion battles rage on planets across the galaxy, and while your mission parameters may be clear, there’s no telling what you’ll find once your boots hit the ground. The sixteen objective miniatures you find in this expansion—including two hostages, six bombs, six crates, and two repulsor pallets—can help you create an immersive and thematic battlefiled. Whether you use these miniatures to replace your objective tokens or to simply add Star Wars flavor to your battles, the story of your battle begins to take shape before you deploy your troops with the selection of the battle cards that will define your battlefield and the conditions you’ll be playing under.

With the battle cards in the Core Set and the Clone Wars Core Set, you could be tasked with rallying an army that finds itself in disarray to intercept somevaluable transmissions.  With nine new battle cards that outline additional objectives, deployments, and conditions, the Vital Assets Battlefield Expansion adds even more possibilities to your games, letting you play out a wide variety of new missions.

Among the new options, you’ll embark on a delicateHostage Exchange that tasks you with securing a VIPand transporting them back to your deployment zone. Such exchanges often take place with both sides behind Fortified Positions,  of course, and the barricades this condition card calls for can create plenty of cover for your troops to cover a retreating hostage.

Alternatively, the battlefield could also be littered with useful tools from a Supply Drop.  This condition card introduces a new deck of sixteen supply cards that your units can draw from throughout the battle. Each of these cards provides your unit with a valuable piece of equipment that can support your operations in the field. With some Bacta Capsules,  for example, a non-droid trooper unit can stay operational a little while longer. Similarly, a Field Scanner gives a unit the tactical data they need to take cover at a crucial moment.

Join the Fight

The soldiers of the Star Wars galaxy are trained and ready to fight on any planet under any conditions. Do you have what it takes to adapt to the situation and lead them to victory?

Broaden the possibilities of your Star Wars: Legion games with the Vital Assets Battlefield Expansion (SWL65), available for pre-order from your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping in the continental United States! Look for this expansion to release in the first quarter of 2020.

Yavin Base: The General’s Strict Orders

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.”

Yet more confirmation that Krennic is just Imperial Leia…

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?
