Deploy Your Droids

Announcing Three New Figure Packs for Imperial Assault

“No, BT-1! No! You can’t possibly do that. They are our masters! Also, who would clean up the mess?”
–0-0-0, Vader: Part III

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce three new figure packs for Imperial Assault:

  • BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack
  • Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack
  • Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack

Across the Star Wars galaxy, droids fill every imaginable role. They serve food in restaurants, they deliver messages, they aid with diplomacy, they pilot starships, and sometimes, they take their place on the battlefield as medics, scouts, or combatants. Now, in the newest set of expansions for Imperial Assault, your droids will play a larger role than ever before. 

Within these three expansions, you’ll find some very different figures, but each one helps to enhance the droids of its faction. You may fight for the Galactic Empire with the sadistic protocol droid 0-0-0 and his explosive astromech companion, BT-1. In the furthest reaches of the Outer Rim, you may choose to support your fellow Mercenaries with a Jawa Scavenger. Or, you may kindle the fire of hope and rebellion with Hera Syndulla and her astromech droid, C1-10P—better known as “Chopper.”

The BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack, the Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack, and the Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack aren’t directly connected to any other Imperial Assault products, meaning that these characters enter the game for the first time in these expansions. Like previous Ally Packs and Villain Packs, however, these expansions offer detailed, sculpted plastic figures and new missions for your campaign and skirmish games. Finally, you’ll find an array of Deployment cards, Command cards, and Agenda cards designed to expand your options and increase the power of your droids!

BT-1 and 0-0-0 Villain Pack

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—but if you fail to rescue the captives, you’ll face BT-1 and 0-0-0 as villains throughout the rest of your campaign.

Your skirmish games aren’t forgotten in this Villain Pack, either. 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. Five new Command cards are also added to your arsenal, many of which make your droids even stronger—such as Shared Experience, which focuses your Droids and Vehicles and returns to your hand whenever a Droid or Vehicle is defeated.

Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack

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. Dispersing the Jawas may let you recover vital data, but if the Imperial player wins this mission, he receives Mechanical Salvage —allowing him to bring droids into play for a significantly reduced cost. 

A Jawa Scavenger can also be recruited into your skirmish team, especially if you’re fighting in the new Mos Eisley Back Alleys map included in this figure pack. Not only do Jawa Scavengers provide a cheap way to gain more figures and activations, they also dramatically expand your options by letting you include Droids from other affiliations in your strike team. 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.

Hera Syndulla and C1-10P Ally Pack

Though 0-0-0 and BT-1 serve the malicious purposes of the Galactic Empire and Jawa Scavengers are only looking to make a profit, some beings in the galaxy fight for a cause larger than themselves. 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. In any mission, Hera can quickly prove herself as an adept leader, 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. 

Your skirmish games also benefit from this new Ally Pack. You’ll find a new skirmish map—Chopper Base, Atollon—that features two unique missions. You can even customize your Droids or Vehicles by strapping on some Scavenged Weaponry. This skirmish upgrade adds one damage to any attack, but more importantly, you can redeploy it to another unit if its current host is defeated. By passing the weaponry around, you may overpower your foes by sheer damage output over the course of the mission.

Technological Threat

Three new figure packs are coming to your games of Imperial Assault, and your droids are about to become much more dangerous. Look for these new expansions at your local retailer in the second quarter of 2017!
