The Power of the Dark Side

Announcing a Limited Edition Darth Vader Commander Expansion for Star Wars Celebration

#StarWars #Legion

“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”
   –Darth Vader, Star Wars: A New Hope

Wherever Darth Vader goes, fear is sure to follow. His foes scatter at the first sound of his mechanical breathing and even his own troops fear the consequences should they fail him. Wielding his lightsaber with deadly efficiency and unleashing the power of the dark side of the Force on those that stand in his way, few can match him combat. There is only one Darth Vader, and those who attend Star Wars Celebration in Chicago from April 11 – 15 will have the chance to add a one-of-a-kind version of the Dark Lord of the Sith to their Star Wars™: Legion armies.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the Limited Edition Darth Vader Commander Expansion for Star Wars: Legion, available exclusively at Star Wars Celebration 2019!

Dark Lord of the Sith

If you're planning to attend Star Wars Celebration, then you will be among the few who have the chance to pick up this Commander Expansion, featuring a finely-detailed, limited edition resin Darth Vader miniature with a custom sculpted base that’s sure to draw the attention of everyone on the battlefield.

In addition to the miniature, those who purchase this limited edition expansion will also find a unit card featuring striking alternate art as well as reprints of Darth Vader’s three signature command cards. Rounding out this expansion are reprints of four upgrade cards that allow Darth Vader to unleash the full power of the Force on his opponents and the rest of the components you need to incorporate this one-of-a-kind minature into your Imperial armies.

Beside the opportunity for you to add an exclusive miniature to your collection, Star Wars Celebration is the ultimate fan experience for all things Star Wars, and Fantasy Flight Games is marking the occasion with a number of events throughout the convention:

  • Fantasy Flight Games will be hosting its own panel offering a closer look at the process behind bringing Star Wars to life in all of our tabletop games. Join us at 11 a.m. on Saturday, April 13, at the Twin Suns Stage for this!
  • Special guest Mark Sorastro of Sorastro's Painting will be hosting a panel on painting miniatures from our Star Wars games. Join us at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, at the Collector's Stage for this!
  • Mark Sorastro will also be holding painting tutorials throughout Star Wars Celebration, inviting new and experienced painters alike to paint miniatures from their favorite games, including Star Wars: Legion and Imperial Assault.
  • Artist Darren Tan will be on hand signing an exclusive Star Wars Celebration art print! In addition to Tan, other artists will also be signing their work from select games throughout the event. 

Stop by our booth at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago for your chance to have artist Darren Tan sign this exclusive Darth Vader art print!

  • Fantasy Flight Games is partnering with Diorama Workshop to bring the Battle of Scarif to life at Star Wars Celebration! Over the course of the convention, builders of all skill levels will have the opportunity to join together to help create a massive 30' x 32' foot diorama depicting the beaches, jungles, and bunkers of Scarif. As they do, they’re invited to paint and populate the diorama with Star Wars: Legion miniatures to complete the scene and—on the last day of the convention—they’ll have the chance to bring their contribution to the project home!
  • The full Star Wars Celebration schedule will be available soon. Keep checking back for more information on how you can join Fantasy Flight Games to celebrate your favorite Star Wars games!
