Fantasy Flight Games has announced two expansion packs for the miniature board game Star Wars: Legion: the limited Commander Skywalker Commander Expansion and the operational expansion Darth Maul including Sith Probe Droids. The last one will be available from November 2nd, the Skywalker pack will be available in stores "soon" according to FFG, then in a limited edition.


Star Wars: Legion is expanded to include two iconic characters. Commander Skywalker and Darth Maul will come into play shortly, as usual, each with individual skills that correspond to the characters from the film template. For example, Darth Maul is an aggressive fighter who can deal enormous damage on the battlefield.

Darth Maul is a "potent lightsaber fighter"

Darth Maul is a tool of destruction among the characters of Star Wars: Legion. Fantasy Flight Games explains, "He rolls eight attack dice and has the potential to bring down an experienced enemy commander - or an entire unit of soldiers - with a single attack." But it's not that simple: half the dice are inaccurate white ones, forcing Maul to rely on target tokens to ensure his punches deal maximum damage.

In addition, the Sith can slip behind enemy lines to wreak havoc and indirectly control the behavior and movement of enemies. As an alternative, the Sith has its test droids at its disposal, which, for example, can unleash suppressive fire on the enemy.

Commander Luke Skywalker will also prove to be useful on the battlefield, of course in a stylish orange pilot outfit. The limited Commander expansion includes a miniature that can be equipped with either a lightsaber or a blaster. The attached pilot's helmet is also a design option that can be used, but does not have to be. The expansion basically contains a unit that is identical to the rebel version of Luke Skywalker from the basic box, but has been refurbished optically.
