FFG Announces X-34 Landspeeder Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

Fantasy Flight Games announces the X-34 Landspeeder Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion, shipping in quarter 2 2019.

Unable to match the Empire’s production of military equipment, the Rebel Alliance makes do with whatever they have on hand—which often means converting civilian vehicles into weapons of war. In addition to being outfitted with stolen weaponry to support Rebel soldiers in combat, the nondescript appearance of these vehicles is often useful in avoiding capture. Soon, you’ll be able to adapt one of the Star Wars saga’s most iconic speeders to fit your needs on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War.

Already a speedy craft thanks to its powerful repulsor engine, an X-34 Landspeeder becomes a threat to even the toughest Imperial opponents when driven by an experienced pilot and equipped with an assortment of weapons. The X-34 Landspeeder Unit Expansion adds one X-34 landspeeder miniature—complete with two unique weapon options—to your Rebel armies. Along with the beautifully sculpted, finely detailed miniature, you’ll find a unit card and all the tokens you need to get your X-34 up and running, as well as a range of upgrade cards to customize it to your specific battle plans.

The X-34 Landspeeder’s origins as a civilian transport make it perfectly suited for crossing the rough terrain that’s commonly seen on the battlefields of the Galactic Civil War. When combined with some passengers carrying blaster rifles—or heavier weapons plugged directly into the speeder’s overcharged power converters—it suddenly becomes a capable military vehicle that can employ hit-and-run tactics to quickly accomplish your objectives. Entering Star Wars: Legion as the Rebellion’s second heavy unit, the X-34 Landspeeder gives you another option for giving your army some much needed power.

As opposed to Imperial vehicles like the AT-ST and TX-225 GAVw Occupier Combat Assault Tank, however, the X-34 Landspeeder’s power comes from something other than raw strength. Like the T-47 Airspeeders also employed by the Rebellion, the X-34 Landspeeder also moves incredibly fast, moving at speed 2 and performing a compulsory move when it activates.
