FFG Cad Bane Operative Expansion Star Wars Legion 2

“I make the rules now.”
—Cad Bane, Star Wars: The Clone Wars

A massive army of battle droids can accomplish many things, but some missions require a more personal touch. When the Separatist Alliance needs to capture a high-value target or recover some critical data, it uses its vast resources to bring in professionals like Cad Bane.

As ruthless as he is cunning, Cad Bane makes use of an impressive arsenal of weapons and allies to ensure that he is prepared for any job. Soon, you’ll be able to hire this cold and calculating bounty hunter to join your Separatist forces with the Cad Bane Operative Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion!

Within this expansion, you’ll find a beautifully detailed, unpainted hard plastic Cad Bane miniature that can be customized to fit your personal style. Not only can you assemble Cad Bane with or without his signature hat, you can also choose whether he appears with both his LL-30 blaster pistols or with a single pistol and his free hand activating his gauntlet control panel.

Just as you can how customize how Cad Bane appears in your army, you can also tailor how he operates in battle to fit your personal style. Already well equipped, Cad Bane’s three command cards give him additional tricks to pull and the six upgrade cards in this expansion give you even more ways to customize his loadout.

Join us today as we take a full look at everything included in the Cad Bane Operative Expansion!

Blaster for Hire

Becoming one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters takes more than just skill with a blaster. You also need to outsmart your opponent, taking away their natural advantages while being ready to improvise when things don’t go according to your plan. To that end, Cad Bane brings a unique mixture of skill and instinct to every fight, keeping a cool head to accomplish his goals and force his enemy’s hand.

A reputation such as Cad Bane’s is earned through a willingness to take on even the toughest jobs. Jedi, clone, or Senator, no target is too dangerous for Cad Bane. For the right price, he’ll track his prey to the far reaches of the galaxy, even wading into the midst of battle to fulfill his contract. Like other bounty hunters, this gives him the opportunity to earn an extra victory token by defeating his chosen target and Cad Bane has his own set of tools for accomplishing this task.

Notably, he comes equipped with a pair of rocket boots that allow him to jump across terrain and cut off his quarry’s escape routes. On top of giving him a superior vantage point to open fire, Cad Bane is also a steady shot who can immediately fire his blasters after landing. Better yet, if he has been trained to make an Offensive Push,  he can use the opportunity to make this shot truly count by also gaining an aim token after making the move.

As dangerous as this may be, it is only one of many methods Cad Bane uses to disrupt his enemies and complete his jobs. Sometimes, capturing a target requires getting up close and a set of  Electro Gauntlets  can go a long way to subdue a mark. This, of course, requires closing in on a target, and he can always make use of some  Smoke Grenades  to screen his advance.

Even with the help of smoke grenades, bringing in a target is a risky proposition. Fortunately, Cad Bane’s instincts have been honed by years in the bounty hunting trade and his ability to sense danger gives him a better chance of avoiding damage. If that’s not enough, he can also use one of his command cards to become his opponent’s worst nightmare for a round. This card allows him to perform up to two attack actions and—even if doing so leaves him open to retaliatory fire—combine his danger sense with some uncanny luck to supercharge his defense rolls.

In order to take on targets as skilled as those Cad Bane routinely faces, he often needs to do more than attack. To this end, he also deploys some unconventional tactics to take control of his opponents and frustrate their efforts. At the same time as he’s closing in on an enemy unit, he can also  cut off their comms  to further isolate them from the rest of their army. For even more of an impact, he can  assert his control  of the situation by transferring any number of his suppression tokens to nearby trooper units, improving the cover of friendly units and slowing down or completely stopping enemy units who receive these tokens.

Cad Bane clearly enjoys controlling the tempo of battle to give himself an advantage, but he rarely enters an encounter without a plan. If you choose, he can  rewrite the rules  in his favor. This card lets you further manipulate your opponent with a set of three unique Bane tokens that are placed facedown and have their own effect once an enemy mini movies, deploys, or is placed at range 1 of one and has line of sight to it.

If you did not divulge this command card, you could potentially set a trap for enemy forces, placing the Kablamo! Bane token and detonating the weapon on the card when it is revealed. Alternatively, divulging this card during the Deploy Units steps lets you place all three tokens beyond range 1 of any deployment zone and leave your opponent guessing. It could just be Smoke and Mirrors and have no effect beyond removing the token, but it could also be the Here I Am token, causing Cad Bane to appear and replace this token on the battlefield or, if he is already on the battlefield, instantly move to this token. Either way, Cad Bane can quickly ambush a unit or snatch an objective out from under them.

Take Control

Cad Bane will take any job for the right price, and he has the skills to bring in any target. Add him to your army and make your own rules!

  • Mal schauen ob Asmodee die Verfügbarkeit langsam in den Griff bekommt. Ich habe da aber so meine Zweifel.

    • Jo, ist grad echt ärgerlich, da hätte ich auch WM/Hordes weiterspielen können😂.
      Warte immer noch auf meine PreOrder von den B2 Droiden und dem AAT auf englisch 🤬.

      • Also meine B2 und der AAT sind schon gebaut und bemalt. Die deutsche Version ist ja schon länger da. 🙂

      • Es sind halt leider viele essentielle Sachen seit Monaten vergriffen, sowohl auf Deutsch wie auch auf englisch. Bspw. Count Dooku oder Klon Captain Rex. Wer da nicht gleich bei Release zugeschlagen hat, schaut jetzt schon lange in die Röhre.

      • Jupp. V.a. dass die Starterbox kaum zu kriegen ist, ist echt ein NoGo. Asmodee könnte doch viel mehr Umsatz machen, wenn da mal was beim Händler leigen würde. Echt schwer an -v.a. aktuelle- Sachen ranzukommen… (kopfschüttel) 🙁

        btw: Cad Bane sieht wieder mal cool aus + tolle Pose! 🙂
