Rebel Troopers fight across the galaxy, but the troopers stationed at Echo Base were specially trained to deal with the extreme environment that awaited them there. This specialised training can make the difference between victory and defeat in a game of Imperial Assault. This figure pack invites you to unleash the uncompromising resilience of the Echo Base Troopers on any battlefield.
In the same fashion as other Ally Packs and Villain Packs, the Echo Base Troopers Ally Pack contains two sculpted plastic Echo Base Trooper figures that you can use to replace the tokens included in the Return to Hoth expansion. Two new skirmish missions based in a Hoth Weather Shelter open your possibilities for competitive play, and a new campaign side mission that can be woven into any campaign expands your adventures in the Star Wars™ universe. In addition, new Deployment cards, skirmish upgrades, and Command cards invite you to expand your strike teams in new directions.
In your campaign missions, the Echo Base Troopers can be vital assets for your heroes. The heroes rarely have the time in a campaign to make a concerted effort defeating the enemies arrayed against them—if they take too many actions away from advancing towards their objectives, time runs out and the Rebels lose the mission. Yet at the same time, these Imperial player’s figures lay down constant fire against the heroes, and in almost all missions, the heroes lose the mission if all of them are wounded.
The Echo Base Troopers provide you a way to battle these threats. While your Rebel heroes focus on completing objectives, the Echo Base Troopers can attack enemy forces and simultaneously draw fire away from your heroes. In combat, the Echo Base Troopers can be highly dangerous—though there are only two figures in a unit of Echo Base Troopers, each figure is significantly more powerful than a standard Rebel Trooper .
This is not a standalone product. A copy of the Imperial Assault Core Set is required to play. Includes missions that require the Return to Hoth expansion.
