Fantasy Flight Games announce four upgrade expansion packs for Star Wars: Legion.
From the iconic E-11 blaster rifle carried by Imperial Stormtroopers to the E-5 blaster rifles wielded by the Separatist Alliance’s legions of battle droids, each Star Wars™: Legion faction has its own signature weapons they bring to the ground battles of the Star Wars galaxy. But select troopers also bring a range of other weapons and skills to their squads and soon you’ll have more options than ever to move your corps units beyond standard issue.
Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce four Upgrade Expansions for Star Wars: Legion:
Featuring newly-sculpted miniatures that can be used interchangeably with those found in previous Star Wars: Legion releases, these expansions give you even more power to customize the look of your armies. Meanwhile, additional personnel and heavy weapons upgrades unlock even more tactical flexibility in your corps units, inviting you to outfit them with new gear for maximum effectiveness. Read on for more information about these Upgrade Expansions!
Imperial Stormtroopers Upgrade Expansion
A ubiquitous sight across the galaxy, white-armored stormtroopers strike fear into the hearts of all those who would oppose the Empire. Though their uniform armor and rigid tactics emphasize the crushing weight of Imperial might, Stormtroopers can be surprisingly flexible units that serve a multitude of roles in Imperial strike forces.
A DLT-19 Stormtrooper from the Star Wars: Legion Core Set or the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, for example, can blast enemies—even those with armor—from beyond the range of a standard E-11 blaster rifle. Similarly, an RT-97C Stormtrooper found in the Imperial Stormtroopers Upgrade Expansion can maintain these long range shots while also producing a higher rate of fire.
Within this expansion, you’ll find four unpainted, uniquely sculpted soft plastic Imperial Stormtrooper miniatures to enhance your existing Stormtrooper units. Joining a Stormtrooper Captain are a Stormtrooper Specialist as well as a T-21 Stormtrooper and an RT-97C Stormtrooper that can both be constructed with their heavy weapons or the standard E-11 blaster rifle. These miniatures are accompanied by seven upgrade cards that allow you to incorporate them into your existing Stormtrooper units as well as a unit card inviting you to create a completely new unit.
Rebel Troopers Upgrade Expansion
The Rebellion is made up of beings from countless worlds, all standing united in opposition to the tyranny of the Empire. No matter what world they hail from, every Rebel trooper dedicates their life to fighting on the front lines for the cause of the Rebellion. Now, you can add even more diversity to your Rebel ranks with the new miniatures and upgrades found in the Rebel Troopers Upgrade Expansion.
This expansion gives you everything you need to enhance both the look of your Rebel Troopers units and how they operate in battle. In addition to new Rebel Trooper miniatures representing aliens from across the Star Wars galaxy, you’ll also find new personnel and heavy weapons upgrades to add to your armies, such as a DLT-20A Trooper that can deal critical damage from long range.
In total, you’ll find four finely detailed, unpainted new soft plastic Rebel Trooper miniatures in this expansion, including an Ishi Tib Rebel Trooper Captain, a Gran Rebel Trooper Specialist, an Ithorian SX-21 Trooper, and a Theelin DLT-20A Trooper. A unit card gives you the option of mustering a new unit using these miniatures, while seven upgrade cards invite you to customize any unit of Rebel Troopers.
