Both expansions give you an alternative to the more well-known heroes, like Leia Organa and Darth Vader. Non-unique Rebel and Imperial officers, not as widely celebrated as other commanders, contribute to the cause nonetheless, making your armies more flexible with their ability to be deployed in two different ways.
These minis can be added to a specific unit as its leader, inspiring the troops in that unit to new heights. Alternatively, they can take on a larger role, becoming a cheap substitute for your other commanders. In this case, they can benefit your entire army by filling the role of commander, spotting targets for your other units or helping them take cover.
Each of the expansions contains everything needed to incorporate these specialists into your Star Wars: Legion units.
“Four finely sculpted specialist miniatures, including an officer, a comms specialist, a medical droid, and an astromech droid stand ready to support your units, while three new command cards give you the chance to further hone your battle plan and plot your strategies. Finally, an array of upgrade cards let you further customize your units, turning them into crack teams of soldiers.”
The Rebel Specialists Personnel Expansion and the Imperial Specialists Personnel Expansion are being released in the first quarter of 2019. Both can be pre-ordered now.
