The 1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team and E-Web Heavy Blaster Team are now available for your games of Star Wars: Legion. Add some heavy firepower to your Galactic Civil War!
Fantasy Flight Games has released two new unit expansions for Star Wars: Legion. The E-Web Heavy Blaster and the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon are both icon weapons from the Battle of Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back. It’s fitting that they have been released at the same time. And now you can get your hands on some upgraded firepower with these new kits.
Imperial troops are known for their relentlessness, pressing the attack even in the face of the strongest Rebel resistance. But when the Empire really wants to bring the fight to the Rebels, it calls in its heavy blaster teams. Bridging the gap between lightly armed trooper units and the heavy AT-ST, an E-Web Heavy Blaster Team gives you even more options for rounding out your Imperial army.
The E-Web Heavy Blaster Team Unit Expansion expands the possibilities for your games of Star Wars: Legion with an unpainted, easily assembled E-Web Heavy Blaster Team miniature that you can field as a support unit. Additionally, three upgrade cards let you customize your heavy blaster team, improving its communications or modifying its power generator to create new ways to attack.
The E-Web Heavy Blaster is a hard-hitting weapon. While it’s a “mobile” weapon platform, it’s still cumbersome so you can’t move and fire on the same turn. However, it can lay down more firepower than an entire unit of Stormtroopers once it’s lugged into position. You can even add some additional white dice to the attack with the Barrage Generator:
No matter where the Rebel Alliance establishes one of its bases, it must always be prepared for an Imperial attack. Rebel ground troops are always willing to put themselves in harm’s way, but sometimes troopers are not enough to stem the tide of the Imperial legions and their heavy walkers. Laser cannon emplacements can provide these troops with the fire support they need to fend off any assault they might face during your games of Star Wars: Legion.
Within the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team Unit Expansion, you’ll find an unpainted, easily assembled 1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team miniature that can be fielded as a support unit for your Rebel army. Alongside this team, you’ll find three upgrade cards that invite you to further modify your cannon to make it an even more stalwart line of defense against the forces of the Empire.
The 1.4 FD Laser Cannon is an immobile turret – however it can rotate 360° with it’s Full Pivot. With 5 black dice that have impact 2 and a range of 1-4, this is one of the hardest hitting weapons in the game. And if you want to spike the damage even further, consider taking the Overcharged Generator for another black die and 1 more impact:
Both of these expansion are now available from FFG – Time to bring on the boom!
