“General Solo, is your strike team assembled?”
  
–General Madine, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Star Wars™: Legion was recently announced, promising you the opportunity to command armies from the Star Wars galaxy and play out the unsung battles of the Galactic Civil War. Now, the Rebellion is ordering reinforcements to the front lines, bringing new troops and vehicles under your command! Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce two new Rebel Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion:

With two new Unit Expansions, you have the perfect chance to supplement your Rebel forces from the Core Set, bringing more and more units to bear in the war against the Empire’s tyranny. Containing a powerful AT-RT walker and more Rebel Troopers for the Alliance, these Unit Expansions offer units identical to the ones found in the Core Set, letting you construct an army that plays the way you always wanted to experience the Galactic Civil War.

You can pre-order these expansions on our website by clicking the product names above, and read on for more information!

AT-RT Unit Expansion

The Rebel Alliance is constantly outgunned in their war against the Empire. Since they cannot hope to match the awe-inspiring military production of a galaxy-spanning Empire, the Rebellion has turned to salvage in order to supplement their forces—such as with the AT-RTs. First introduced by the Republic during the Clone War, the All Terrain Recon Transport, or AT-RT, has since been co-opted by the Rebel Alliance to aid their war against the Empire.

As a relatively quick and maneuverable walker that can pack a significant punch with its weapons systems, additional AT-RTs have plenty to offer to your army as you supplement the single AT-RT in the Core Set. Since each AT-RT only offers a single hardpoint for a larger gun, it’s easy to have your walkers fill different roles in your army—deploying some armed with laser cannons against enemy vehicles and sending another to mop up Imperial infantry with a flamethrower.

The AT-RT Unit Expansion includes a single new AT-RT miniature for you to add to your Rebel army, complete with three different gun attachments that can be attached to your miniature. Along with the AT-RT, you’ll find the associated unit card and an assortment of upgrade cards for you to enhance your AT-RT and other units.

Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion

The Alliance recruits warriors from every world—wherever they can find beings who have come to hate the Empire’s tyranny. Together, these ragtag groups of recruits become Rebel Troopers, carrying out the fight against the Empire on dozens of worlds across the galaxy. The Rebel Trooper is well-used to embarking on stealthy missions, and above all, they’ve learned to trust the other soldiers in their squad with their lives.

Rebel Troopers form the backbone of any Alliance army taking the field against the Empire, where they’ll use their mobility to gain the upper hand against their foes. Rebel Troopers on their own are known for being nimble, but if you equip them with the new Grappling Hooks upgrade card, your Rebels can clamber over terrain with ease.

The Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion features a full unit of seven Rebel Trooper miniatures, identical to the Rebel Troopers included in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set. This expansion also includes the unit card and an assortment of upgrade cards, inviting you to kit out your Rebel Troopers for any battlefield scenario.

Rebel Recruits

With two new Rebel Unit Expansions arriving to supplement the armies of the Rebellion, this is your first chance to reinforce your armies in Star Wars: Legion and get a taste of the battles to come.

Look for the AT-RT Unit Expansion (SWL04) and the Rebel Troopers Unit Expansion (SWL05) at your local retailer in the first quarter of 2018, or pre-order them online through our website!
