Announcing Two Commander Expansions for Star Wars: Legion

“We adapt, or die.”
   –Iden Versio, Star Wars Battlefront II

Some Rebel and Imperial commanders prefer to match wits with their adversaries on the open field as they deftly maneuver their troops around the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War. Others take a more clandestine approach, leading daring raids deep in enemy territory or operating independently to accomplish their objectives. Now two elite agents and their loyal companions are on their way to take command of any operation.

Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two new expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:

Whether they’re leading an entire army or operating as a covert strike team alongside their droid companions, these versatile commanders can quickly adapt to almost any battlefield situation. What’s more, four new command cards allow them each to use even more of their special training, inviting you to further tailor your strategies to fit their unique skill sets.

Read on for more information on these Commander Expansions!

Spy, Saboteur, Assassin

Cassian Andor has dedicated his life to the Rebellion and his resolute belief in its cause makes him willing to do whatever it takes to complete his mission. As one of the Alliance’s most capable intelligence agents, Andor is well-versed in infiltration and intelligence-gathering techniques, but he can still take a quick Crack Shot at an enemy whether he’s carrying a covert blaster or a sniper rifle. At the same time, Andor’s leadership abilities cannot be denied, and he can just as easily lead an entire army of Rebels into battle regardless of how hopeless their task may seem.

While the nature of Andor’s missions can make it difficult to operate alongside large groups of his fellow Rebels, a reprogrammed KX-series security droid like K-2SO has no such issues. Able to seamlessly blend in with Imperial forces until he’s ready to unleash his massive strength and quick reflexes on his foes, K-2 can help Andor in any situation.

Within the Cassian Andor and K-2SO Commander Expansion, you’ll find beautifully detailed, unpainted, hard plastic Cassian Andor and K-2SO miniatures that feature a wealth of customization options. Cassian Andor, for example, can be assembled with three different weapon options, including his compact blaster or his A-280-CFE in its pistol configuration. K-2SO, meanwhile, can be assembled carrying Jyn Erso’s SE-14 blaster, a grenade, or with his hands free.

Finally, this expansion also contains four new command cards—three for Cassian Andor and one for K-2SO—as well as Cassian Andor and K-2SO’s unit cards and nine upgrade cards that let you outfit this pair with additional weapons, gear, and more.

Servant of the Empire

They may be taking the fight to the Rebellion in space or on the ground, but in any arena, Inferno Squad is one of the Empire’s most elite special forces units. As the leader of this crack team, Iden Versio has the experience necessary to lead any Imperial attack group into battle. But Versio’s training at the Imperial Academy on Coruscant has also made her an invaluable asset who can strike out on her own to complete whatever directives the Empire gives her.

Whichever way Versio is deployed, she enters battle supported by the latest Imperial technology. With a quick Pulse Scan,  her ID10 seeker droid can identify multiple targets and enhance her already keen aim. While its range may be limited, this seeker droid can also make attacks of its own, sometimes even incapacitating an entire enemy unit.

The Iden Versio and ID10 Commander Expansioncontains beautifully sculpted, unpainted hard plastic Iden Versio and ID10 seeker droid miniatures that can be instantly integrated into your Imperial armies. As you do, the Iden Versio miniature can be customized with an assortment of head and weapon options to fit your personal taste. This miniature can be assembled with or without the Inferno Squad helmet and can can also appear with three distinct weapons, including the standard issue E-11 blaster rifle or Versio’s personal TL-50 repeater.

Rounding out this expansion are four new command cards—three for Iden Versio and one for her ID10 seeker droid—along with unit cards for both Versio and ID10. Finally, nine upgrade cards invite you to customize their loadouts with more weapons, comms, and more.

Light It Up

There is more than one way to be a leader. Rather than face the enemy head on, there are those like Cassian Andor and Iden Versio who work better in the shadows. Soon, both can add these new dimensions to your armies.
