This expansion for Star Wars: Legion contains four unpainted and finely sculpted soft plastic Stormtrooper miniatures different from those found in the Star Wars: Legion Core Set and the Stormtroopers Unit Expansion, inviting you to enhance your existing Stormtrooper units or to form a corps unit of their own. Alongside these new miniatures, you’ll also find new heavy weapon and personnel upgrade options to outfit your Stormtroopers for any situation.
