Announcing Two Support Unit Expansions for Star Wars: Legion
–Qui-Gon Jinn, Star Wars: The Phantom Menace
As the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance attempt to gain a foothold in the Clone Wars, they increasingly turn to swift new vehicles to support their troops on the ground. More than just providing additional firepower, these vehicles are designed to work in concert with the soldiers they fight alongside, boosting their natural abilities.
Soon, you’ll have the chance to field two vehicles that add new dimensions to your Clone Wars armies. Fantasy Flight Games is happy to announce two Unit Expansions for Star Wars™: Legion:
Playing to their faction’s strengths, these units fully integrate with the armies surrounding them to enhance any task force. As you prepare to bring them to the battlefield, you can assemble the finely detailed, unpainted hard plastic miniatures in a variety of ways, making these units truly your own.

Press the Attack
Built for speed across any terrain, the AT-RT Republic scout walker lets a single clone trooper bring an entire unit’s worth of heavy firepower to the battlefield. Capable of striking from unexpected angles and outflanking formations of enemy battle droids, the AT-RT makes a formidable addition to forces of clone troopers.
The AT-RT’s ability to handle difficult environments makes it a critical component of Republic scouting parties designed that engage with enemy forces before reinforcements arrive. The clone pilot’s Merr-Sonn RPC-2 Rocket Launcher helps soften any targets he may encounter in forward areas, but the AT-RT’s true power comes from a hardpoint that can be outfitted weaponry specific to its mission.
The Republic AT-RT Unit Expansion puts a single beautifully detailed, unpainted hard plastic AT-RT miniature at your disposal that can be piloted by two distinct variations of an Advanced Force Recon clone pilot. Beyond the pilots, you can also pick the weapon mounted on the AT-RT’s hardpoint, choosing between a rotary blaster, a laser canon, and a flamethrower.
Swift scouting craft designed for coordinating allied forces and performing reconnaissance, single trooper aerial platforms, or STAPs, are typically piloted by B1 battle droids and kept aloft by whirring repulsorlifts. As they speed above the battlefield, their riders are able to relay important scouting information to friendly units. Unable to be piloted by an organic rider, these nimble craft avoid enemy fire through sheer speed and maneuverability.
Often deployed to support their fellow B1 battle droids in Separatist armies, STAPs can also relay information to other vehicles. When outfitted with a Command Control Array, a single STAP unit can serve as a vital link in an army's integrated network.
Within the STAP Riders Unit Expansion, you’ll find two beautifully detailed, unpainted STAP rider miniatures that featuring a number of customization options. Two different flight stands let you depict your STAP riders at different heights, while the STAP pilots themselves can be assembled in a variety of poses.
No matter what units make them up, the best armies come together to act as one. Bring your troops together and swiftly strike your opponents with these new vehicles!
