The Emperor, while certainly a master of the dark Force, is still in need of those to protect him when he goes out (he doesn't have a lot of friends). Those protetors come in the form of the Imperial Royal Guards, those red-robed sentinels always around him. In this preview, we get a look at what they'll be like when coming to the tabletops in Star Wars: Legion.
From the post:
The Imperial Royal Guard is shrouded in mystery. Encased in blood-red robes and peering out from behind featureless masks, these enigmatic warriors do little to reveal their combat prowess. Regardless of the rumors surrounding them, their mere presence and menacing force pikes are all it takes to keep any visitors from making threats against the Emperor.
Soon, you can witness the deft reflexes and superb combat awareness of the Imperial Royal Guards firsthand with the Imperial Royal Guards Unit Expansionfor Star Wars™: Legion. These elite warriors are trained in many forms of combat, making them equally lethal up close or from a distance. More importantly, they are unquestioningly loyal to Emperor Palpatine, following his orders without hesitation.
Within the Imperial Royal Guards Unit Expansion, you’ll find everything you need to field a group of these crack bodyguards, including four finely sculpted Imperial Royal Guard miniatures. Additionally, the skills of your Royal Guards can be further enhanced by five upgrade cards, while a unit card and a handful of tokens help you fully integrate them into your army.
