The warriors of Kashyyyk join the fight as the Rebellion’s first melee specialists. They are also unique as one of the first multi-wound infantry units, along with their counterparts, the Imperial Royal Guard. Sporting a high overall health pool and excellent weapon options, the Wookiee Warriors are versatile brawlers that excel at both melee and…

I hope you all had a great holiday season! I meant to post this up but alias I’ve been sick!
Incase you needed some tips in painting those lovable fur balls you most certainly picked up last week, here is another wonderful tutorial from the master miniature painter himself, Sorastro. The tutorial features Chewbacca of course, but also includes Gaarkhan which gives you a second option for those Wookiee Warriors. After following these guides you should be able to create your own custom paint jobs for the rest of your walking carpets.
Latest episode is now available from the gang over at Legion Outriders:
“Laugh it up, fuzzballs…the Wookies are here! We also wrap about the new OP kits, new theme missions, and what role Nick Nolte could play in the new TV series.”

Today marks the long awaited day that the wookiees join the fight against the Galactic Empire. And of course FFG has a little write up about their release:
As Han Solo’s ever-faithful companion, Chewbacca isn’t afraid to follow his friends into battle. Once there, it isn’t hard to see how he can aid Rebel commanders as they attempt to capture crucial objectives or secure a foothold on the battlefield. His immense strength and personal connection to Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa make him a natural choice to join these iconic heroes on the battlefield as an operative.
Inside the Chewbacca Operative Expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add Chewbacca to your Rebel army in Star Wars™: Legion. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature depicts Chewbacca roaring into battle, his trusty bowcaster at the ready. Three upgrade cards provide more tools for preparing Chewbacca and your other units for battle, and three command cards can add more variety to your hand, allowing Chewbacca to team up with the three Rebel commanders.

Despite their imposing size, Wookiees are normally peaceful and proud. After years of suffering under Imperial rule, however, many Wookiees have taken to the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War as members of the Rebel Alliance. Although they are a rare sight on the battlefield, Wookiees can quickly enter a berserker rage that any surviving enemies will not soon forget.
Within the Wookiee Warriors Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion, Rebel generals will find everything they need to add a group of Wookiees to their army as a special forces unit. Four unpainted, easily assembled miniatures display the Wookiees charging into the fray brandishing their Ryyk Blades, while five unique upgrade cards can prepare them for whatever they may face on the battlefield.

Nicholas Freeman posted his analysis of the Wookiee Warriors on LegionImpact.com earlier today:
Wookiee Warriors are self sufficient skirmishers, they are melee power houses, and they are hardy enough to shrug off even the most vicious attacks. In Star Wars: Legion the Wookiee Warriors are a Rebel elite unit option. They are fast, sturdy, and efficient in melee – and as such see specialized use in of Rebel forces.
With Chewy and his band of Wookiee (remember, kids, there are two “e”s in “wookiees) Warriors Fantasy Flight Games dropped their full preview of those fatal fury troops.

FFG has changed the status of Chewbacca and his warring carpet friends to “Shipping Now”. This should make their release officially Dec 20th here in the USA and around that date for the rest of the world.
Just in time for Santa to insure these are safely under your trees Christmas morning.
