It was only a matter of time! I’d expect this to drop this fall possibly Q4 if not Q3
“I don’t know what all this trouble is about, but I’m sure it must be your fault.”
–C-3PO, Star Wars: A New Hope
Whether repairing a starfighter on the fly or translating the binary language of moisture vaporators, droids can perform tasks that other beings simply cannot. But sometimes droids transcend their programming, using their many skills to help their allies in wholly unexpected ways. Such is the case with R2-D2 and C-3PO.
Throughout both the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War, these two iconic droids often took on critical objectives that sent them into the heart of battle—much to C-3PO’s chagrin. With the Crashed Escape Pod Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion, you can make this dynamic droid duo an integral part of your Star Wars infantry battles. Continue reading →
“Uh oh. Blast ‘em!”
–OOM-series Battle Droid, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
Whether their armies consist of droids programmed for battle or clones with combat imprinted on their DNA, it’s clear that both sides of the Clone Wars value the benefits of rigidly standardized armies. But this uniformity isn’t absolute. Both battle droids and clone troopers carry different weapons and gear into battle, allowing them to shake up their approach to each engagement.
More than just increasing a unit’s firepower, these upgrades also augment the ways they can use their unique abilities.

BARC and Droideka Expansions will be released Nov 1st according to an email sent out by Asmodee.
I did a quick write-up of things I found interesting during today’s FFG Live: Ask Me Anything with Alex and Luke:
-The Clone Wars Core Set will release worldwide on Oct 18th
-The Card Packs will release on Oct. 18th
-No release date for Dewbacks but will release ASAP
-More Competitive Battle Cards will be added to the game “Sooner than later”
-We may eventually get custom commanders
-We will see more cross faction units
-We will most likely see Commander Coby and all “popular characters” added to the game; at least that’s the goal
-Phase 1 Clone Troopers feature the furthest they could push PVC plastic. Phase 2 Clone Troopers will be hard plastic, but will not be as customizable as the Phase 1s, but as Legion continues to grow with hard plastic there will be some “really cool figures in the near future” and you’ll be able to “customize them in a lot of cool ways”
-They are moving away from 1 for 1 releases and moving towards more thematic releases, e.i. themes build on movies, TV shows, certain battles, locations, different media, fridge elements that don’t fit anywhere else
-They will consider all possible factions including Scum and Villainy. They hinted that The Mandalorian could help flesh that faction out
-Subfactions are still on the table, but it sounds like the game needs to grow more to warrant them Continue reading →
