Specialist Expansions Delayed?

Stuart Galloway posted on Facebook that he recovered an email from Wayland Games that states that his pre order for both the Imperial and Rebel Specialist expansions are being delayed by Fantasy Flight Games until March 29th 2019.

The Specialist Expansions are expected to be released in a few weeks at the end of January.

Wayland Games distributes in the UK. No news in regards if this is a localized issue with Wayland Games or if other companies, e.i. Alliance who distributes in the USA, is also experiencing similar delays.

Though on Fantasy Flight Games’ Upcoming section of their website, the Specialists are still listed as being “In Development”. Based on past releases the expansions would be listed as “On the Boat” by now if they were to meet the original expected release date of January 24th. This seems to had credence to a possible delay.

If you have any further updates please email at [email protected]


Alliance, who distributes in the US, looks like they are still on track for the late January release.

Also the Spanish FFG site has the two Specialist expansions listed with a release date of January.

Sorastro: Star Wars Imperial Assault Painting Guide Ep.50: Sabine Wren

Not Star Wars Legion, but the Sabine Wren mini, after a quick base swop, fits perfectly in with any custom game of Legion.

If you’re like me, you bought your Sabine mini months ago, primed her, then sat her on a shelf too intimidated to start globing paint all over her in an attempt to match one of her complex color schemes.

The master mini painter, Sorastro now has you covered…not in paint. BUT will show you how to cover your Sabine in paint.

Impact X: Two Updates to the Gathering Legions Campaign

Nicholas Free of Impact X created an in-depth campaign for Legion. Without going into too much detail here you can read more about the Gathering Legion Campaign here.

In addition to that he also write two companion pieces going into further depth on how to create Hero characters:

He writes: “I was getting multiple questions about how heroic units work so i wrote up a quick tutorial and simplified how increasing or decreasing surges work.

for those of you who haven’t seen yet, I made a pretty robust campaign league play supplement. We are still streamlining it and working out the kinks as a community – so take a look and share your thoughts.

after the character development framework is solid we’re going to add campaign specific mission cards.”

Jon Favreau Tweets Out Image of IG-88 For Christmas!

Impact X: Gathering Legions Campaign

Nicholas Freeman posted the following on Facebook earlier today: “My local group and I have been playing around with these rules and are about to start a full campaign to give them a real test… but I think they are in a place where I can share them with the rest of you and get your feedback too… Plus who doesn’t want to make their own Star Wars heroes?!

Give them a read through and share your thoughts. What would be most helpful for me to hear is things you find unclear, things you think have been missed or should be added, some of your favorite house rules you play with, and then make a character or two and share them below!

the goal going forward with this, once the character progression is in a good place, is to partner with Imperial Terrain to create some rules for terrain rules such as the Imperial walls, barracks, etc to include in campaigns. As well as to create campaign specific mission cards.”
