New Star Wars Imperial Assault products from Fantasy Flight Games!

Coming in June!
Star Wars: Imperial Assault: Twin Shadows Expansion
$39.95 SRP

“If there’s a bright center to the universe, you’re on the planet that it’s farthest from.”
   –Luke Skywalker, Star Wars: A New Hope

The Galactic Civil War touches every planet eventually, even those on the galaxy’s Outer Rim. Now, the war has come to the desert planet of Tatooine. Long dominated by the galaxy’s Scum and Villainy, a growing Imperial presence on Tatooine has prompted the Rebellion to send Han Solo with R2-D2 and C-3PO to investigate. But communications with Han Solo have been cut off, and your elite team of Rebel operatives is dispatched to uncover the truth.

Twin Shadows is a new expansion for Imperial Assault, offering plenty of new content for both the campaign and skirmish games. Danger lurks around every corner in this expansion: Twin Shadows boasts six new missions that can be played as side missions for a larger campaign. These missions can also be strung together as a fully formed mini-campaign chronicling your efforts to rescue Han Solo and survive the danger that waits on Tatooine. In addition, this expansion offers two new skirmish missions, offering new opportunities for you to battle a friend in thrilling tactical battles. 

As the shadows grow on Tatooine, two new heroes from the Rebel Alliance prepare for battle against new threats like Heavy Stormtroopers and Tusken Raiders. With new Command cards, Agenda cards, Condition cards, Class cards, and Supply cards, your games of Imperial Assault change forever with Twin Shadows. In addition, twelve new double-sided map tiles draw you deeper into the Star Wars universe. You may find yourself on the bridge of an Imperial Star Destroyer or engaged in a firefight in a Mos Eisley cantina.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault: Boba Fett, Infamous Bounty Hunter Villain Pack
$9.95 SRP

Many bounty hunters ply their trade throughout the galaxy, chasing down and capturing their quarries. These men and women are well known as hard fighters and relentless pursuers, but even among the bounty hunters, there is one who has forged a reputation for his brutality and skill. Now, you can hire Boba Fett – the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy – for any Imperial Assault mission you may undertake.

Boba Fett is a valuable asset for any servant of the dark side. Whether you hire him for a campaign or a skirmish mission, his formidable abilities and explosive armaments make him a deadly opponent. In addition to Boba Fett’s own talents, you can also use the Soldiers for Hire agenda set to harry the heroes between missions. You can ground and attack a Rebel supply convoy on Yavin 4 in a new side mission and you can use any means necessary to take down a targeted hero during a mission.

In your skirmish games, the new skirmish upgrade and Command cards included in the Boba Fett Villain Pack can provide a crucial advantage over your opponent. With Jump Jets , for instance, you can fly across the battlefield, cutting off your target’s escape or quickly bypassing any obstacles that stand between you and a mission objective. Whether you battle through the new Imperial Space Station map or engage in another skirmish mission, this figure pack has plenty to offer to every player.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault: R2-D2 and C-3P0 Ally Pack
$12.95 SRP

R2-D2 and C-3PO are two of the Rebellion’s most storied Droids. Over the years, these Droids have participated in countless adventures and dangerous missions alongside Jedi, smugglers, and heroes of the Rebel Alliance. Now, you can bring them both to your games of Imperial Assault.     

During your Imperial Assault missions, both R2-D2 and C-3PO have useful tasks to fulfill. R2-D2’s mastery of computers is unparalleled, allowing him to hack and hardwire his way past enemy defenses. C-3PO, on the other hand, can give your troops the crucial information they need, even while distracting your opponent’s figures. In your campaigns, these Droids offer a key advantage in the new Open to Interpretation side mission, which challenges you to steal Imperial data from a heavily defended base.

C-3PO and R2-D2 are worthy allies in your skirmish games as well, distracting enemy figures, allowing you to draw more Command cards, and focusing your own figures. You may even use the Single Purpose Command card to make R2-D2 or C-3PO’s special actions twice as effective. The new Wasteland Outpost skirmish map offers two brand-new missions, but wherever you battle in the Star Wars galaxy, these two Droids are sure to prove useful.

Star Wars: Imperial Assault: Kayn Somos, Trooper Commander Villain Pack
$9.95 SRP

Legions of Stormtroopers are the fist of the Galactic Empire, smashing down on  dissension and rebellion wherever they appear. These troopers are highly trained warriors, and a cunning leader only makes them more dangerous. In this figure pack, you gain access to Kayn Somos, a trooper commander renowned for his ruthless tactics.

Kayn Somos is a dangerous combatant in his own right, but he truly shines in his ability to command other Troopers in battle. He can focus his comrades, grant them more attacks, or harness a Command card like Rank and File to boost the movement of his Troopers. No matter where he goes on the battlefield, Kayn Somos is an inspiring presence, bringing increased firepower and keen battlefield tactics to the Empire’s troops. This Villain Pack also includes the Stormtrooper Support agenda set. With this set, you can challenge the Rebels to attack a Stormtrooper training facility and you can draw upon your endless reinforcements to overwhelm the heroes and extinguish the flame of Rebellion.

You’ll also find two new missions for the Imperial Assault skirmish game. You can lead Kayn Somos and his endless squads of Troopers into the Tython Meditation Fields or any other skirmish map, sweeping all opponents before the might of the Empire. Whatever your battlefield, Kayn Somos’s sound tactics and commanding presence help to tip the odds in the favor of the Galactic Empire.
