Krennic, Death Troopers, and Chewbacca join Star Wars: Legion

Fantasy Flight Games‘ Star Wars: Legion sees 3 new expansions added as Director Orson Krennic, Death Troopers, and Chewbacca stand ready to join the battle.

“Every great achievement requires just as much ambition, and there are few as ambitious as Director Orson Krennic. As the head of the Empire’s Advanced Weapons Research division, he oversaw the creation of the dreaded Death Star, and he employs the same ambition on the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion. Ruthless and cunning, Krennic can manipulate friends and foes alike to achieve his goals in battle.” [source]

Krennic’s position as Director entitles him to his own entourage of Imperial Death Troopers, which leaves room for other special units to be added to the army. The Director Krennic Commander Expansion comes with a finely detailed model, 3 signature command cards, and 3 general command cards.

The Imperial Death Troopers Unit Expansion includes 6 models for units from the elite, Tarkin Initiative. They are cruel, tough, and rumored to be physically augmented through classified medical procedures.

“Death trooper candidates are hand-selected from the Stormtrooper Corps by Imperial Intelligence itself and, as such, these elite troops display skills beyond those seen in other Imperial troops. Unfazed by enemy fire, death troopers wade into battle, firing with unmatched precision. They display so much discipline, in fact, that they can remove a suppression token when they are issued an order, keeping them pressing the attack no matter how much adversity they face.” [source]

The expansion also includes a unit card, an assortment of tokens, and upgrade cards to give the Death Troopers improved weapons.

For players looking to play on the Light Side of the Force, they need look no further than Chewbacca.

“Entering Star Wars: Legion as the Rebellion’s first operative, Chewbacca creates new opportunities for your army not seen in your other units. His Wookiee physiology makes him capable of feats unheard of in other species, and for 110 points you can find out exactly what it means to team up with a Wookiee.” [source]

Chewbacca is an absolute tank on the battlefield who is able to soak up damage, rip apart units at close quarters, or heavily fire upon the enemy at a distance using his bowcaster. He also has 3 signature command cards which allow him to pair up with Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Han Solo. The Chewbacca Operative Expansion adds a finely detailed model of the Wookie, and additional cards and tokens.
