Earlier this afternoon at their AdeptiCon panel, Fantasy Flight Games gave us a bit more information about the Clone Wars for Legion, so let’s dive in.
UPDATE – Official FFG Articles:
NEW: Clone Wars Core Set
Here’s what we know:
- The CLONE WARS CORE SET will cost $99.95 USD and will include 39 miniatures for the CIS and Galactic Republic factions
- It will be RELEASED IN Q3 of 2019
- Republic side comes with:
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
- BARC Speeder
- 2 Phase I Clone Trooper Units
- CIS side comes with:
- General Grievous
- 2 Droideka Units
- 2 Battle Droid Units (9 minis each)
- Some minis will have multiple sculpt/positioning options
- Future minis will be on SPRUES/FRAMES – this will give them a higher quality overall, although will be a change for Legion players
- An UPGRADE PACK will also become available to help new players save some money and get into the game faster with upgrade cards from previous releases
- Separatists will have access to “Dark Side Only” powers and Republic will have access to “Light Side Only” powers
- Eventually, FFG wants to bring all Legion units to the sprue/frame model
- No app/points update confirmed, but Alex Davy is “certainly” looking at it
- FFG won’t “completely drop” the Rebellion and Empire, but will slow down releases once Clone Wars are out to help catch up
- On playstyle: “opportunity to deviate” from basic template. Separatists as a “horde” army (6 B1s are 36 points, “and they’re terrible”), Republic are “super elite” – highly trained, bred for battle, led by Jedi.
- New token: SURGE TOKEN, convert one surge to hit or block
- Alex hinted at the possibility of a future mercenary faction, but said that for the most part characters like Boba Fett mostly fall to one clear side (except for Hondo, he said, who you might well see)
- New Learn to Play will come in the new core set
- After the new core set is released, there will be an “injection of new battle cards” released
- Creature Troopers (Tauntauns and ???) will not get cover from suppression
