FFG is pulling the covers off three of the new mercenaries coming in the Jabba’s Realm expansion box for Imperial Assault.

First catch up on the basics on the expansion:


Jabba’s Realm $59.95

Imperial reprisals have swept the galaxy, targeting not just the Rebels, but their families and loved ones as well. In desperation, you and a team of other Rebel operatives have gathered as many refugees as you can in hopes of shepherding them to safety in the Outer Rim. Your escape is discovered, however, and you’ve been shot down on Tatooine. Here, the power of the Empire is not as strong as elsewhere—but that doesn’t mean you’re out of danger. This is the domain of Jabba the Hutt, and you’ll need to play by his rules if you want to survive.

Jabba’s Realm is a new expansion for Imperial Assault that offers a wealth of new content for your campaigns and skirmishes. You’ll find an entirely new full-length campaign that challenges you to survive among the desert wastes and criminal underworld of Tatooine, even as new skirmish missions invite you to battle in the Nal Hutta Borderlands or around the fabled Pit of Carkoon. 

Eighteen new double-sided map tiles evoke the opening scenes of Return of the Jedi, giving you access for the first time to Jabba’s palace, his pleasure barge, and iconic locations like the sarlacc pit. Meanwhile, sixteen brand-new plastic figures offer new warriors and heroes for the Imperials, Rebels, and Mercenaries, even as new Command cards, Deployment cards, Agenda cards, and Class cards give you countless ways to customize your game. With characters like Jabba the Hutt, the Rancor, and Luke Skywalker as a Jedi Knight joining the game, this expansion draws you into the Star Wars saga like never before.


Three New Mercenaries

Here we see the Rebel-leaning mercenaries who come with the set. Note how the three are Rebel faction in the standard game, but move to the Mercenaries faction in the Skirmish game:

Shyla Varad – Daughter of Mandalore




Onar Koma – Furious Bodyguard



Vinto Hreeda – Reckless Vigilante




I’m sure we’ll get the Imperial leaning 3 later – and the RANCOR! You can get much on these three from FFG here.


~Jabba’s Realm ships out in Q4 2016.
