Fantasy Flight Games has announced their newest expansion Crashed Escape Pod Battlefield Expansion for Star Wars: Legion. In this newest expansion players will be able to play as fan favorites R2- D2 and C-3PO.
More than just a terrain piece or objectives, the unpainted, hard plastic crashed escape pod miniature and hard plastic R2-D2 and C-3PO miniatures you’ll find in this expansion are an invitation to join two of the Star Wars saga’s most iconic droids on their adventures across the galaxy. These miniatures can play a central role in two distinct scenarios outlined by six new battle cards. Alternatively, four unit cards give you the chance to add both R2-D2 and C-3PO to your Rebel or Republic armies.
Players will also be use the included escape pod miniature in new focused scenarios which will have players fighting for control of this new objective.
But escape pods can carry more than just ground troops. They’re also a good way to get sensitive information off a ship before it falls into the wrong hands. During these occasions, both sides are likely to do whatever they can to recover this data, including deploying troops to the crash site. As a result, the Crashed Escape Pod Battlefield Expansion also contains six battle cards that make the escape pod the focal point of two different scenarios.
