The Clone Wars: What We Learned at Adepticon

New info on the Clone Wars in Legion from Adepticon!

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

Q&A Additions

  • 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

      Calm down, Reggie.

      Just kidding! On a scale of 1-10 in terms of excitement, I’m resting at a healthy rate of, eh 30,000?

    Do we know if these factions are compatible with fighting the other 2, or will the rulesets for both eras be too different? I’m asking because my friend and I have a third friend who wants to get into Legion and a third faction would be fun to play, even if the battles are inaccurate to the time periods.
