Preview the Tauntaun Riders Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

“And I thought they smelled bad on the outside.”
   
–Han Solo, Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

On an icy planet like Hoth, even the most advanced technology can’t save you from the subzero temperatures. The Rebel Alliance learned this lesson well when they had difficulty operating their repulsorlift speeders on the frigid planet. 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 →

Updated Official Rules Reference

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.

FFG: Announcing Two Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion

The Clone Wars are raging across the Star Wars galaxy and, as more and more planets are drawn into this epic conflict, both sides explore different ways to support their troops on the ground. Soon, both the Galactic Republic and the Separatist Alliance will have the chance to supplement their forces with some of the Clone Wars’ most cutting-edge military technology. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two new Unit Expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:

Representing radically different approaches to vehicular combat, these Unit Expansions can support your troops in every phase of the battle. Whether you’re looking to lay down some heavy fire to protect your troops’ advance or make your army more mobile, these units open new options for your Clone Wars-era armies, letting you diversify your forces and explore new strategies, no matter what enemy you face.

BARC Speeder Unit Expansion

Versatile and swift, BARC speeders are designed to assist clone troopers as they scout the field, protect key targets, and launch rapid surprise attacks. These durable speeder bikes are armed with heavy blasters and fitted with powerful engines, making them useful in nearly any theater of ground war across the galaxy.

Although they may be defined by their great speed, BARC speeders provide the Grand Army of the Republic with much more than a target that’s hard to hit. An optional sidecar leaves room for you to equip your BARC speeder with a range of weaponry, instantly turning it into a heavy weapons platform. When combined with the speeder’s built-in Twin Light Blaster Canons, driver and passenger can unleash an attack powerful enough to damage the heaviest Separatist droids.

Within the BARC Speeder Unit Expansion, you’ll find one unpainted, finely sculpted BARC speeder miniature different than the miniature included in the Star Wars: Legion Clone Wars Core Set—now featuring pilots in BARC Speeder Pilot armor. If you choose, this miniature can include a sidecar featuring a built-in M-45 Ion Blaster or a Mark II Medium Blaster. Similarly, a Clone Trooper can fire an RPS-6 rocket launcher from the sidecar. This expansion also includes a unit card and an assortment of six upgrade cards, inviting you to outfit your speeder to fit your personal battle plan.

Droidekas Unit Expansion

Versatile and extremely destructive, Droidekas are a threat to even veteran squads of clone troopers and skilled Jedi Knights—and when B1 Battle Droids fail, droidekas are often sent to execute their primary function: annihilation of their targets. Rolling swiftly into battle, droidekas unleash their arm-mounted twin blasters, pouring out withering torrents of fire.

The Separatist Alliance’s own take on a ground vehicle, Droidekas are completely self-sufficient, quickly rolling into battle in wheel mode, then snapping into position and opening fire with their powerful Dual Twin Blaster Cannons. Equipped with their own shield generators, only the Republic’s most hardened troops can hold off a frontal assault from a determined pair of Droidekas for long.

The Droidekas Unit Expansion lets you support your droid forces with some of the most powerful combat droids in the galaxy. Four finely detailed, unpainted Droideka miniatures identical to those found in the Star Wars: Legion Clone Wars Core Set represent your Droidekas as they speed across the battlefield in wheel mode and unleash suppressive fire in their attack configuration. Meanwhile, a unit card fully outlines the Droidekas’ abilities, while three upgrade cards give you the freedom to modify them with comms systems.

Send in Reinforcements

As the Republic’s valiant clones and the Separatist’s dauntless droids battle for supremacy across the galaxy, the vehicles that enter the fight to support these troops could make all the difference. Make your plans, bolster your armies, and claim victory in the Clone Wars!
