At Gen Con 50, we announced Star Wars™: Legion, 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 Empire is calling up its reserves and mobilizing more Stormtroopers under your command! Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce two new Imperial Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion:

With the two new Unit Expansions listed above, you have the perfect chance to supplement your forces from the Core Set, bringing the might of the Empire to bear against all who stand in your way. With squads of 74-Z Speeder Bikes and Stormtroopers, 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!

74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion

The howl of a 74-Z Speeder Bike racing past is not something that’s easily forgotten. The Empire commonly uses these speeder bikes for scouting and reconnaissance missions, but they can also be deployed to terrifying effect on the battlefield, where their sheer speed often prevents the enemy from taking a clean shot.

As a unit capable of racing across massive swathes of the battlefield in a single round, the 74-Z Speeder Bikes are a crucial part of any Imperial deployment. Since they’re often ranging the far edges of the battlefield or flanking the enemy, a Long-Range Comlink is an undeniable boon, enabling you to issue orders to your Speeder Bikes even when they’re on the far side of the map. Alternatively, you may choose to equip these fast-moving vehicles with a Comms Jammer, preventing nearby enemies from receiving orders and potentially throwing your opponent’s plans into disarray!

The 74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion includes a unit of two 74-Z Speeder Bikes, and all the unit cards and upgrade cards you need to expand your forces with these lightning-fast speeders.

Stormtroopers Unit Expansion

No image is more iconic and symbolic of the Empire’s power than the expressionless helmet of an Imperial Stormtrooper. These soldiers have been deployed on hundreds of worlds across the galaxy, and everywhere they go, they keep the boot of Imperial oppression firmly placed on the neck of all who resist.

Filling a similar role to Rebel Troopers in an Alliance army, the Stormtroopers are the infantry foundation of any Empire mobilization. With the ability to supplement your squads of Stormtroopers with specialized miniatures to gain an advantage against powerful vehicles, you can upgrade your Stormtroopers to take down any kind of threat the Rebellion may field.

In the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find seven Stormtrooper miniatures, identical to the ones included in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set, along with the unit card and upgrade cards that you need to add another unit of Stormtroopers to your army.

Imperial Reserves

With two new Imperial Unit Expansions launching straight into battle against the Rebel Alliance, this is your first chance to reinforce your Imperial army in Star Wars: Legion and get a taste of the battles to come.

Look for the 74-Z Speeder Bikes Unit Expansion (SWL06) and the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion (SWL07) at your local retailer in the first quarter of 2018, or pre-order them online through our website!
