“Disguised as a cargo ship and using a secret Imperial code, a strike team will land on the moon and deactivate the shield generator.”
–General Crix Madine, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi
A successful military force needs specialized soldiers of all stripes to support the main vanguard. It needs shock troops to break the enemy lines and push an advantage, heavy artillery to bombard the enemy position, and skirmishers to harry and distract. The Rebel Alliance is no stranger to the realities of war, and there are few warriors more specialized and deadly than the Alliance Rangers.
Well known for accompanying Han Solo to Endor as part of his elite strike team with a mission to deactivate the shield generator, the Alliance Rangers are the consummate long-range fighters. Now, with the Alliance Rangers Ally Pack for Imperial Assault, you’ll find three carefully sculpted Alliance Ranger figures, new Deployment cards and Command cards, and new missions for the campaign and skirmish game, inviting you to wage guerrilla warfare in the Star Wars galaxy.
