FFG Preview the Wookiee Warriors Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion

Soon you’ll be able to direct your Wookiees’ fury at your Imperial foes on the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion with the Wookiee Warriors Unit Expansion.

In this expansion, you’ll find four unpainted, easily assembled Wookiee Warrior miniatures eager to test their tenacity and resolve on the battlefield. Already fearsome on their own, five upgrade cards give you the chance to further enhance their abilities. Finally, a unit card and a handful of tokens let you fully incorporate a unit of Wookiee Warriors into your armies. Join us today as we take a look at everything a group of Wookiee Warriors adds to your Rebel army!

Hailing from the jungle and swamp covered planet of Kashyyyk, Wookiees have developed several characteristics to overcome the hazards of their home planet. Their great height, thick shaggy coats of hair, and extendable claws not only help the Wookiees thrive on Kashyyyk, but countless other planets across the galaxy.

As a result, perhaps no other unit in Star Wars: Legion can adapt to the unique conditions of the battlefield as readily as the Wookiee Warriors. Equally at home on the icy plains of Hoth as they are in the scorching deserts of Tatooine, a unit of Wookiee Warriors features several built-in advantages over other units in terms of sheer mobility. For 75 points, then, your army gains a special forces unit that can quickly rush to almost any point on the battlefield with little concern for the terrain it has to cross.

Naturally Unhindered, Wookiee Warriors ignore the effects of difficult terrain without having to commit extra points to equip Environmental Gear. This also frees up their Gear slot for more advantageous upgrades. For example, taking Recon Intel instead plays into the Wookiees’ desire to move quickly and engage enemy units as soon as possible. But this is far from the only way Wookiees excel at navigating their environment. They also happen to be Expert Climbers, allowing them to effortlessly clamber over any terrain that might be between them and an objective or enemy unit.
