The Imperial Shoretroopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars: Legion has been on my wishlist for a while now. It has been out of stock at various place where I normally shop, but on a recent visit to a FLGS they had a couple of boxes in stock so I picked one up.
It was seeing the Shoretroopers in Rogue One on Scarif that made me want to get a box.
Selected for rotational duty from exceptional Stormtrooper squads, Imperial Shoretroopers are trained not only in tropical environment operations, but also in entrenched warfare. Often assigned to important bases such as the Imperial security facility on Scarif, Shoretroopers use their expertise and equipment to counter Rebel ambushes and ensure Imperial secrets remain safe.
Rogue One is probably my favourite Star Wars film and I remember going to to the cinema to see A New Hope when it came out. Going forward to having some games of Star Wars: Legion, the land battles on Scarif are really what I want to try and recreate.
The Imperial Shoretroopers Unit Expansion has seven figures.
Within this expansion, you’ll find seven unique, unpainted Imperial Shoretrooper miniatures to add to your Star Wars™: Legion collection. Five of these troopers are armed with E-22 blaster rifles while a Shoretrooper equipped with a T-21B targeting rifle is ready to deal extra damage from long range. But if you’re truly looking to keep enemy units from escaping with sensitive information, a DF-90 Mortar Trooper can be added to your army as a detachment from the rest of your Shoretroopers. Rounding out this expansion are two unit cards, five upgrade cards to fully kit out your Shoretroopers, and all the tokens you need to deploy them to any battle.
So do I start painting these, or should I finish my other Star Wars: Legion models first…
