Three new Ally & Villain Packs have been announced by Fantasy Flight Games for your Imperial Assault Games – Send in the Droids!
Everyone’s favorite homicidal droids are leaping from the comics to your tabletop! I’m sooooo pumped to see BT and Triple Z take the board. Aside from that, Rebel’s fans have something else to cheer for – Hera Syndulla and C1-10P are also coming with this wave. And let’s not discount those cute-but-deadly Jawas as well.

Hera Syndulla and C1-10P $12.95
Hera Syndulla and her loyal astromech C1-10P are stoking the fires of resistance in a galaxy that’s choking under the heel of the Empire. With the Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack, you can bring the will to rebel into your games of Imperial Assault.
In your campaigns, Hera may lead you to Tatooine in a desperate attempt to rescue Chopper from Imperial imprisonment, but Hera can prove herself as an adept leader in any mission, calling the shots to keep your entire strike team on point. Chopper is also more than capable of handling himself in battle, using a variety of tricks and tools to knock your enemies back and keep you on top of any engagement.
BT-1 and 0-0-0 $12.95
First introduced in the Darth Vader comics, BT-1 and 0-0-0 serve the interests of the Galactic Empire with a special relish for destruction. 0-0-0 is a protocol droid specially equipped to interrogate and eliminate captives, while BT-1 possesses enough hidden firepower to destroy an entire squad of enemy soldiers. With their unique skills, you’ll be able to field these two droids in any Imperial strike team with the release of the BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack.
No matter where your Imperial Assault campaigns take you in the Star Wars galaxy, the Rebel heroes will have reason to fear to glowing red displays of BT-1 and 0-0-0. A new campaign Agenda mission challenges the heroes to rescue prisoners from an Imperial interrogation facility on Kessel and you’ll find a new skirmish map with two unique missions, giving you the opportunity to battle through the twisted corridors of the Tarkin Initiative Labs.
Jawa Scavenger $9.95
Droids are common throughout the galaxy, but to the Jawas of Tatooine, they’re something special. Once taken as salvage, droids can be broken apart for parts, rebuilt and sold, or even incorporated into the Jawa’s scavenging operation. As the Jawa Scavengers join the galaxy’s Mercenaries in this Villain Pack, you’ll also find ways to improve the droids fighting by your side.
This Villain Pack offers a single Jawa Scavenger figure, alongside all the Deployment cards you need to field normal or elite versions in your campaign or skirmish games. Your campaigns may take you to the wastes of Tatooine as you interfere with a Jawa salvage operation, but a Jawa Scavenger can also be recruited into your skirmish team, especially if you’re fighting in the new Mos Eisley Back Alleys map. Whether you’re trawling the Jundland Wastes for salvage or headed elsewhere in the galaxy, a few Jawa Scavengers would rarely go amiss in your team.

Classic BT-1, just classic…
