Star Wars: Legion the miniatures game of interstellar combat by Fantasy Flight Games already contains some pretty exceptional characters and now you can boost the arsenal of the Galactic Empire and strengthen your Imperial army with the Emperor Palpatine Commander Expansion. Emperor Palpatine packs a pretty serious punch as his Force Lightning outmatches even an AT-ST, and his command of the Dark Side rivals that of Darth Vader. He does move slowly though- so players will need to strategize to overcome that obstacle. The Expansion comes with the Emperor Palpatine miniature and all the cards and components you need to add his power and mastery to your game.
Releasing with Emperor Palpatine is his Royal Guard. The Imperial Royal Guards Unit Expansion comes with 4 Royal Guard miniatures and everything necessary to incorporate into your game. These are fierce combatants who excel in close or one-on-one combat and they are most formidable when protecting a commander. Their Force Pike melee weapon is devastating and the EC-17 Hold-Out Blaster they each carry is a great weapon albeit with a short range.
When these 2 new expansions are put together they truly are a force to be reckoned with. FFG says these expansions will be released together in the 4th quarter of 2018.
