Clone Wars Set Announced, New Sets Previewed, New Upgrades Announced, New Releases Out for Star Wars: Legion

I swear, Fantasy Flight went full ham on Star Wars: Legion announcements yesterday. Arguaby the biggest of these is the announcement that they're going to a new era in the Star Wars saga with the coming Clone Wars sets. They're getting a starter set, and they've posted up a couple previews of expansion packs as well. Along with that, Fantasy Flight has announced an Upgrade Card deck so you can further customize your forces. Finally, they have some new releases which include Death Troopers and Director Krennic, as well as the latest Star Wars: Destiny release.

Announcing the Clone Wars Core Set for Star Wars: Legion

War has engulfed the galaxy. The vast forces of the Separatist Alliance, bolstered by seemingly endless ranks of battle droids, have pushed the Galactic Republic to the brink of dissolution and defeat. The Republic’s only hope is its army of elite clone troopers, led into battle by noble, Force-wielding Jedi Knights. The war between them is an epic struggle where every battle could turn the tide and change the fate of the galaxy.

Soon, you can immerse yourself in this epic conflict, assembling your forces and leading them against your opponents in the legendary ground battles of Star Wars. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce the Clone Wars Core Setfor Star Wars™: Legion!

This Core Set invites you to enter a completely new era of infantry battles in the Star Wars galaxy, pitting the overwhelming Separatist droid forces against the Republic’s crack armies of clone troopers and Jedi Knights. With the thirty-nine unpainted, easily assembled miniatures you find here, you can begin building and painting a unique army of the Clone Wars’ most iconic heroes, villains, troopers, and vehicles. As you do, you’ll develop new strategies and deploy new tactics tailored to each of these faction’s unique capabilities.   

In addition to introducing the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance to the game as new factions, this Core Set contains all the cards, tools and tokens you need to begin staging your own Star Wars battles right away, making this the perfect starting point for building your Star Wars: Legion collection. Importantly, the Clone Wars Core Set is not a new edition of the game, and you don't need the original Core Set to start playing. The Clone Wars Core Set is fully compatible with all previous Star Wars: Legion products, inviting you to play out whatever battles you can imagine across the saga.
