“Their chances of success against us are 742 to 1”
–Tactical Droid TX-20, Star Wars™: The Clone Wars
The Separatist Alliance’s nigh-inexhaustible reserve of battle droids and their supporting engines of war is a very real threat to the galaxy. The implacable advance of superior numbers is often the default tactical approach for Separatist commanders, though at times the deployment of more specialized droids to support the endless ranks of battle droids is required to ensure victory.
Soon, you’ll be able to make use of these specialized droids with the Separatist Specialists Personnel Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion! Continue reading →
“This is where the fun begins.” –Anakin Skywalker, Star Wars™: Revenge of the Sith
As the Clone Wars rage on, new heroes emerge with every battle. Whether they’re a famed Jedi Knight leading their troops into battle or a simple droid relaying key intel to the rest of its army, the actions of these few could determine the outcome of the entire conflict.
–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. Soon, you can add even more diversity to your Clone Wars-era armies with the B1 Battle Droids Upgrade Expansion and the Phase I Clone Troopers Upgrade Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

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 →
Sources are telling us that the Clone Wars Core Set has been pushed back from its recently announced release date of Oct 4th.
The Oct 4th date was already a delayed date as the Clone Wars Core Set was previously expected to release Mid to Late September. There are many rumors to the reason for these delays but none have been confirmed.
The online gaming store Miniature Market preemptively shipped some Core Sets to customers who preordered.
The Dewback, that were supposed to release with the Shoretrooper expansion but due to a packaging error were also delayed, has yet to receive a confirmed release date.
