Today on Tabletop Spotlight, we take you through the new releases for Star Wars Legion. Come check out Emperor Palpatine and his Imperial Guard and the heavy blaster weapons used at the Battle of Hoth.
Star Wars Legion brings the battles of a galaxy far, far away right to your tabletop. And today we take you through several of the new units out in the last couple of months. Emperor Palpatine and his Guard face off with Chewbacca and some heavy Rebel Equipment in today’s Tabletop Spotlight.
These are some of the iconic weapons from the main trilogy–bringing the movies to life in miniature form on the table. So it’s not really life, but rather some sort of twisted marionette like existence where you make them fight and die and fight again at your behest, but, you know when you say it like that it sounds creepy. So let’s just move on into the minis themselves…
The Galactic Empire encompasses countless star systems, ruling over the galaxy with an iron fist and sitting at its head is Emperor Palpatine. As the ultimate ruler of the Empire, all bow before him, even the fearsome Darth Vader. A brilliant manipulator who almost singlehandedly orchestrated the fall of the Jedi order and his own rise to power, the Emperor makes a perfect addition to Star Wars: Legion as a commander of the Imperial forces.
Within the Emperor Palpatine Commander Expansion you’ll find everything you need to add Emperor Palpatine to your army as a commander—leading the Imperial forces on his own or alongside another Imperial commander such as his apprentice, Darth Vader. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature depicts a cloaked Emperor Palpatine plotting his next move, while three upgrade cards allow you to tap into his mastery of the Dark Side of the Force. Finally, three new command cards give you more options for determining your battle plans, letting you make use of the Emperor’s abilities as a master strategist.

As the ruler of the Galactic Empire, Emperor Palpatine is the ultimate power in the galaxy. Wherever he goes, the Imperial Royal Guard is sure to follow. Inscrutable behind their blood-red masks, the Imperial Royal Guard will face down anyone that dares threaten the Emperor. While little is known about these enigmatic warriors, one thing is certain: their sole directive is to protect the leader of the Galactic Empire, with their lives if necessary.
The Imperial Royal Guards Unit Expansion contains everything you need to add a unit of Emperor Palpatine’s personal bodyguards to your army. The squad of four unpainted, easily assembled miniatures stands ready to protect the Emperor or do his bidding on any planet across the galaxy. The Royal Guard is also accompanied by five distinct upgrade cards that invite you to outfit them with even more tools for protecting the Emperor.
- Protect the Emperor with the four unique, highly detailed miniatures included in this expansion pack! Three of the Royal Guard are armed with Force Pikes and EC-17 hold-out blasters, while the fourth Royal Guard wields an electrostaff to deadly effect.
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.
- This expansion pack features a single highly detailed E-Web Heavy Blaster Team miniature—two Snowtroopers crouched over an E-Web Heavy Blaster and laying down heavy fire against the Rebel Alliance.
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.
- Fortify your position with the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon Team miniature featured in this expansion pack! As one Rebel trooper peers through macrobinoculars and spots targets, the other stands at the controls of the 1.4 FD Laser Cannon, ready to unload heavy firepower on Imperial troops.
Han Solo’s ever-faithful companion, Chewbacca isn’t afraid to follow his friends into battle. Once there, it isn’t hard to see how he can aid Rebel commanders as they attempt to capture crucial objectives or secure a foothold on the battlefield. His immense strength and personal connection to Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Leia Organa make him a natural choice to join these iconic heroes on the battlefield as an operative.
Inside the Chewbacca Operative Expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add Chewbacca to your Rebel army. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature depicts Chewbacca roaring into battle, his trusty bowcaster at the ready. Three upgrade cards provide more tools for preparing Chewbacca and your other units for battle, and three command cards can add more variety to your hand, allowing Chewbacca to team up with the three Rebel commanders.
