Star Wars Legion: Neue Erweiterungen

Fantasy Flight Games haben gleich mehrere Neuheiten für Legion angekündigt.

FFG Clan Wren Unit Expansion 1

“I choose family.”
–Tristan Wren, Star Wars Rebels

From the Clone Wars to the Galactic Civil War and beyond, war is constant part of the Star Wars™ galaxy. While some shy away from these conflicts, others embrace them, making battle a part of their very being. These proud warriors thrive on combat, carrying on their martial traditions through countless generations.

Now, two units with a history of warfare are entering the battle for the fate of the galaxy. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two new special forces units for Star Wars™: Legion:

Bringing together iconic characters and elite agents for both the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire, these units stand ready to uphold their reputations as some of the galaxy’s finest warriors. As you integrate them into your armies, you’ll also find a variety of customization options that allow you to match their look to the role they take in battle.

Read on for more information about these expansions!

FFG Clan Wren Unit Expansion 2

Mandalore Rising

Madalorians are proud warriors whose martial traditions stretch back centuries. Among this storied people, the members of Clan Wren are legendary for their battlefield prowess. With the Galactic Empire dividing the great houses of Mandalore, Clan Wren unites with the Rebellion to fight for a free galaxy and the liberation of Mandalore.

Speeding across the battlefield with their jet packs, members of the Mandalorian Resistance can back up your forces anywhere on the battlefield. Even if they find themselves at long range, a volley of Jetpack Rockets can soften a target before they swoop in to finish it off. If this firepower isn’t enough, Clan Wren itself can take the field, working alongside the Rebel operative Sabine Wren to overcome their foes.

FFG Clan Wren Unit Expansion 3

Within the Clan Wren Unit Expansion, you’ll find seven highly customizable Mandalorian miniatures—enough to deploy in two distinct units. Three of these miniatures blast off from their bases with jet packs and flight stands let you decide their height and trajectory—including Tristan Wren, who wields a blaster rifle from his time as an Imperial Super Commando. Meanwhile, a single Mandalorian trooper can wield the traditional beskad saber or appear with a single Westar 35 blaster pistol. Finally, Clan Wren matriarch Ursa Wren leads her family into battle with her signature Nite Owl helmet.

We’ll take a closer look at everything in this expansion in a future preview!

FFG Clan Wren Unit Expansion 4

Spread Like Fire

Imperial special forces units are masters of infiltration, extraction, and combat in any environment. Inferno Squad has distinguished itself from even these elite units, proving to be particularly effective at protecting—or burying—the Empire’s secrets and eliminating any threat to its reign.

Tasked with completing specialized stealth missions such as retrieving vital intelligence and destroying key targets, Imperial special forces troopers are adept with an array of weaponry, including the T-21 Blaster . Inferno Squad is particularly notorious for its unconventional tactics and its members—including Gideon Hask and Del Meeko—can lend their specialized skills to number of Imperial units.

FFG Clan Wren Unit Expansion 5

No matter what unit you assign them to, the seven unpainted hard plastic Imperial Special Forces miniatures you find in this expansion arrive in a variety of poses. One of these troopers can be assembled with either a T-21 blaster rifle or an E-11 blaster rifle. If you’re assembling Inferno Squad to work alongside Iden Versio, separate Gideon Hask and Del Meeko miniatures can be assembled with or without their signature helmets and Meeko enters battle carrying a DLT-19x sniper rifle.

Continue the Tradition

While many of have joined the Galactic Civil War out of necessity, some have been training to enter this fight their entire lives. Add these born warriors to your army and carry on their legacies of war!

FFG Republic AT RT Unit Expansion 1

“Stay down!”
–Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace

As the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance attempt to gain a foothold in the Clone Wars, they increasingly turn to swift new vehicles to support their troops on the ground. More than just providing additional firepower, these vehicles are designed to work in concert with the soldiers they fight alongside, boosting their natural abilities.

Soon, you’ll have the chance to field two vehicles that add new dimensions to your Clone Wars armies. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two Unit Expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:

Playing to their faction’s strengths, these units fully integrate with the armies surrounding them to enhance any task force. As you prepare to bring them to the battlefield, you can assemble the finely detailed, unpainted hard plastic miniatures in a variety of ways, making these units truly your own.

FFG Republic AT RT Unit Expansion 2

Press the Attack

Built for speed across any terrain, the AT-RT Republic scout walker lets a single clone trooper bring an entire unit’s worth of heavy firepower to the battlefield. Capable of striking from unexpected angles and outflanking formations of enemy battle droids, the AT-RT makes a formidable addition to forces of clone troopers.

The AT-RT’s ability to handle difficult environments makes it a critical component of Republic scouting parties designed that engage with enemy forces before reinforcements arrive. The clone pilot’s Merr-Sonn RPC-2 Rocket Launcher helps soften any targets he may encounter in forward areas, but the AT-RT’s true power comes from a hardpoint that can be outfitted weaponry specific to its mission.

The Republic AT-RT Unit Expansion puts a single beautifully detailed, unpainted hard plastic AT-RT miniature at your disposal that can be piloted by two distinct variations of an Advanced Force Recon clone pilot. Beyond the pilots, you can also pick the weapon mounted on the AT-RT’s hardpoint, choosing between a rotary blaster,  a laser canon, and a flamethrower.

FFG Republic AT RT Unit Expansion 3

Link Up

Swift scouting craft designed for coordinating allied forces and performing reconnaissance, single trooper aerial platforms, or STAPs, are typically piloted by B1 battle droids and kept aloft by whirring repulsorlifts. As they speed above the battlefield, their riders are able to relay important scouting information to friendly units. Unable to be piloted by an organic rider, these nimble craft avoid enemy fire through sheer speed and maneuverability.

Often deployed to support their fellow B1 battle droids in Separatist armies, STAPs can also relay information to other vehicles. When outfitted with a Command Control Array, a single STAP unit can serve as a vital link in an army’s integrated network.

Within the STAP Riders Unit Expansion, you’ll find two beautifully detailed, unpainted STAP rider miniatures that featuring a number of customization options. Two different flight stands let you depict your STAP riders at different heights, while the STAP pilots themselves can be assembled in a variety of poses.

FFG Republic AT RT Unit Expansion 4

Stay Mobile

No matter what units make them up, the best armies come together to act as one. Bring your troops together and swiftly strike your opponents with these new vehicles!

    • Würde nicht ausschließen daß die Deathwatch noch kommt, zumindest Pre Vizla und dann könnte man Clan Wren einfach entsprechend anmalen, benutzen ja sogar die gleiche Westar 35 Blaster Pistole. Daher erkenne ich keinen relevanten Unterschied. Mit dem Nite Owl Helm müsste man evtl schauen.
      Definitiv eine schöne Einheit für meine Star Breach Ideen 😁

    • Ich mag das System, wenn ich auch gerade erst meine Fühler ausstrecke und erst eine Handvoll Testspiele gemacht habe.
      Gute Balance aus leichter Spielbarkeit und genug Fleisch um auch den Kopf benutzen zu dürfen.
      Und ich habe den Eindruck dass das bereits ganz gut etabliert ist, ist ja schon ne Weile am Markt und ein Freund ist sehr aktiv dabei. Entsprechend muss es wohl eine Community drumrum geben.

    • Dicke (wahrscheinlich die beste) Franchise die vorne zieht, FFG die hinten drücken (d.h. nicht angewiesen auf KS und es gibt offizielles organized play), die Figurenqualität hat einen ordentlichen Sprung gemacht und es gibt eine ordentliche Auswahl an Einheiten. Und es ist schon 3 Jahre alt. Hier Zeit und Geld zu investieren ist wahrscheinlich langfristig sicherer als bei manchen AoS/40k Armeen.

    • Die Regeln sind solide, aber es zerfasert wie X-Wing. Man muss inzwischen um den Tisch laufen, um die Upgrades zu studieren. Außerdem macht sich immer mehr der Power Creep bemerkbar. Aber ein Stormtrooper sieht eben wesentlich besser aus als ein Space Marine.

  • Alles sehr, sehr geil, v.a. die STAPs! Glaube ich werd mir alles holen. 😀
    Wenn das nur nicht immer (gefühlt) Jahre bis zur Veröffentlichung/Händler dauern würde… 🙁

  • Ich finde beide Trupps für die Zeitebene „Original-Trilogie“ gut. Die Mandalorianer bzw. der Clan Wren sind eh coole Socken – und der Inferno Squad an sich sieht optisch sehr gut aus – auch wenn 3 von 4 Mitgliedern miese Verräter sind.

  • Die Proportionen wirken auf mich – insbesondere bei den Mandalorianern – unstimmig. Die Helme und Köpfe sind anscheinend so groß wie ihre Oberkörper. Ist Geschmackssache – mir gefällt es nicht. Wünsche dennoch allen Begeisterten viel Spaß mit den Miniaturen 😉

  • Ui, Mandalorianer für die Rebellen, das gefällt mir! Ich hoffe weiterhin darauf, dass Legions um eine „Scum & Villainy“ Fraktion erweitert wird. Das wäre ganz großes Kino!
