Announcing Six Clone Wars-era Expansions for Star Wars: Legion
“I bring you good news, my Lord: The war has begun.”
–Count Dooku, Star Wars: Attack of the Clones
Though they may differ ideologically, the major powers behind the Clone Wars are remarkably similar when it comes to filling out their armies. Rather than round out their ranks with fresh-faced recruits, both the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance turn to soldiers who are made rather than born. This manufactured might helps them wage war on a galactic scale, and now more troops, vehicles and leaders are on their way to lend their strength to this conflict.
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce six new Clone Wars-era expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:
- Count Dooku Commander Expansion
- Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansion
- Phase II Clone Troopers Unit Expansion
- B2 Super Battle Droids Unit Expansion
- TX-130 Saber-class Fighter Tank Unit Expansion
- AAT Trade Federation Battle Tank Unit Expansion
Whether you focus on bringing down your foes with superior training and tactical flexibility as the Republic or crushing your enemies with fine-tuned machines of war as the Separatists, these expansions add powerful new options to each faction's arsenal. Featuring additional miniatures to add to your collection, as well as new weapon upgrades and command cards, these units have something to contribute in every phase of battle.
Count Dooku Commander Expansion
While much of the galaxy knows him as the Separatist Alliance's Head of State, Count Dooku serves a more sinister purpose. Actually a powerful Sith lord, Dooku works behind the scenes to bring down the Jedi and destroy the Republic once and for all. As the rare Separatist unit powerful in the Force, he takes to the battles of the Clone Wars ready to show off his skills to any bold enough to challenge him.
Dooku's hatred of the Jedi fuels him on the battlefield and he unleashes his anger on opponents with a particularly elegant and aggressive style of lightsaber combat. But Count Dooku never lets his anger control him. Instead, he is a cunning commander who baits his opponents into making grave mistakes before cutting them down. Whether attacking with his lightsaber and Force lightning or directing his forces in battle, Dooku will find his enemy's weakness and ruthlessly exploit them to great effect.
Within the Count Dooku Commander Expansion, you'll find one unpainted and finely detailed Count Dooku miniature challenging all comers with his lightsaber. Additionally, four upgrade cards let you explore the depths of Dooku's Force powers, while three command cards invite you to make him a central piece of your army's strategy. Like previous Star Wars: Legion releases, the miniature in this expansion will be made of soft plastic and its pieces will be bagged.
We'll take a complete look at everything included in this expansion—including all of Count Dooku's signature command cards—in a future preview!
Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansion
A clone trooper unafraid to use more unorthodox tactics, Clone Captain Rex served with distinction throughout the Clone Wars, often fighting alongside exemplary Jedi Knights such as Anakin Skywalker. He viewed military service as an honor, and his loyalty to the Republic and his Jedi Generals was absolute.
Rex honed the use of twin blaster pistols into an art form, leading his fellow clones to victory on countless battlefields across the galaxy. In addition to being a hardened warrior skilled in both ranged and hand-to-hand combat, Rex strives to bring out the best in the clone troopers under his command. As a result, he often works closely with them to make coordinated movements and attacks that his droid counterparts are incapable of.
The Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansion contains everything you need to add this new commander to your Galactic Republic army, including an unpainted Clone Captain Rex miniature that can be assembled without his helmet, or with either a Phase I or Phase II Clone Trooper helmet. This miniature comes with Rex's three signature command cards that give him the power to issue orders to his fellow clone troopers, as well as five upgrade cards inviting you to unlock Rex's full potential. Like previous Star Wars: Legion releases, the miniature in this expansion will be made of soft plastic and its pieces will be bagged.

Phase II Clone Troopers Unit Expansion
Phase II clone trooper armor reflected one of the Republic's greatest technological successes and included advanced tactical gear that further augmented the clone troopers' individual strengths. Additionally, the clones wearing this armor were themselves better trained and more experienced than those first deployed at the start of the war.
With this armor, the clone troopers that made up the bulk of the Republic's forces become even more reliable, impressing their Jedi Generals and making it clear why they were considered one of the best fighting forces the galaxy has ever seen. On top of the clones' increased capabilities, Phase II armor also made it possible for clones to carry powerful mortar launchers into battle, making the Republic's weapon pull even more diverse.
Within the Phase II Clone Troopers Unit Expansion, you'll find everything you need to deploy an elite corps unit of Phase II Clone Troopers, including seven hard plastic Phase II Clone Trooper miniatures on frames. First, the unit's leader can be assembled with or without his helmet. Similarly, a Z-6 Phase II Trooper can be built with or without his helmet or, if you choose, he can carry his signature Z-6 Rotary Blaster or the standard DC-15A Blaster Rifle. Finally, a Phase II Mortar Trooper can lug his mortar into battle stowed on his back or with the mortar fully deployed.

B2 Super Battle Droids Unit Expansion
B2 super battle droids were the hulking, brutal cousins of the wiry B1-series battle droids of the Separatist army. Heavily armored and devastatingly powerful with their integrated wrist blasters, the sight of a squad of these droids on the battlefield could chill even the most seasoned clone troopers.
Like their fellow battle droids, B2 units share the compulsion to attack at the first sight of the enemy. Unlike these other droids, however, they bring heavy firepower to these attacks. When their standard arm cannons aren't enough, a B2-ACM Trooper can add even more firepower to the unit or a B2-HA Trooper can punch a hole through enemy defenses.
The B2 Super Battle Droids Unit Expansion provides your army with six hard plastic B2 Super Battle Droid miniatures on frames to add to your Star Wars: Legion collection. Four of these miniatures feature the standard wrist cannons seen on most B2 battle droids and three of them can be posed in a variety of positions. Meanwhile, separate B2-HA and B2-ACM miniatures menace opposing armies with heavy weapons.

TX-130 Saber-class Fighter Tank Unit Expansion
A light repulsor tank designed with the tactical flexibility of a starfighter, the TX-130 Saber-class fighter tank is agile and swift, making it an ideal match for the heightened acuity of Jedi Generals like Aayla Secura or Plo Koon. For a battle tank, the Saber-class can be elegant as it nimbly weaves across the battlefield, slashing entire formations with a beam cannon or ripping apart enemy armor with twin laser cannons.
While the TX-130 is surprisingly swift, this extra speed and maneuverability leaves it more vulerable to enemy attacks than similar heavy vehicles. Still, both Jedi and clones can use the Saber-class tank to great effect, and a variety of new ordnance allows Republic commanders to equip this tank with the shells that fit their exact battle plan.
Within the TX-130 Saber-class Fighter Tank Unit Expansion, you'll find everything you need to incorporate one of these powerful repulsor tanks into your Galactic Republic armies, beginning with an unpainted and beautifully detailed hard plastic TX-130 Saber-class Tank miniature that can be assembled with its missile pod doors open or closed. In addition to choosing how the tank's missile pods are assembled, you can also customize the look of the turret, choosing between a twin laser turret or a beam cannon turret. Finally, this turret can be manned by a Clone Trooper with either a Phase I or Phase II helmet.
On top of how it looks, you can also customize how your Saber-class tank functions in battle with ten upgrade cards that invite you to swap out its pilots, weapons, ordnance, and comms systems. We'll take a look at everything included in this expansion—included all the weapon options—in a future preview!
AAT Trade Federation Battle Tank Unit Expansion
The AAT Trade Federation battle tank is a hard-hitting vehicle favored by Separatist commanders like Lok Durd. While its droid operatives require precise commands to be used to full effect, its primary MX-8 artillery laser cannons can blast out barrages that target multiple enemies or hammer the same foe with twice the firepower, and its anti-personnel armament can even whittle down squads as heavily armored as Clone Troopers.
Although not autonomous itself, cunning tactical droid pilots help the AAT tank blend seamlessly with the Separatist's interlinked droid army. Unlike their lightly-armed cousins on the ground, AAT pilots have prodigious power at their disposal. When the tank's standard armament isn't enough, commanders can always call on a variety of heavy ordnance to hammer enemy vehicles and troopers.
With the AAT Trade Federation Battle Tank Unit Expanion, you can add one of these heavy tanks to your Separatist army. The unpainted, finely-detailed hard plastic minitature you find here can be constructed with its hatch closed or with a B1 Battle Droid scanning the horizon for new targets. In addition to this miniature, you'll find everything you need to fully customize it to your personal strategy, including eight upgrade cards and a unit card.
We'll take a closer look at the AAT Tank and all its cards in a future preview!
