As evidenced by his tracking Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon to Bespin in The Empire Strikes Back, Boba Fett is a cunning bounty hunter who considers all the angles. He’s also a formidable warrior, with his intimidating Mandalorian armour concealing an assortment of deadly weaponry. Working best on his own, Boba Fett is just as lethal as any squad of Stormtroopers and this Operative Expansion lets you bring Fett's many skills to your Star Wars: Legion battles.
As the game’s first operative, the Boba Fett Operative Expansion includes everything you need to add the galaxy’s best bounty hunter to your Imperial army. A single unpainted, easily-assembled miniature depicts Boba Fett taking flight in search of his next quarry. Meanwhile, three command cards let you tap into the many dirty tricks Fett has hidden in his Mandalorian armour, and three upgrade cards give you even more tools to equip Boba Fett or another unit for battle.
Despite the military advantages of the Galactic Empire, it is difficult for them to completely stamp out the flames of rebellion. The Rebels always seem to be one step ahead, secreting themselves away in the far corners of the galaxy. So when the Empire needs someone who can do more than fire a blaster, Imperial generals have no qualms about hiring bounty hunters to track important Rebel targets and join the fight alongside their troops. Now, one of the galaxy’s deadliest hired guns is available to hunt down and eliminate Rebel scum wherever they can be found.
Unlike the rank-and-file troops that make up the bulk of the Empire’s ground forces, a bounty hunter like Boba Fett is free from the rigid constrictions and uniformity common in military units. He chooses instead to use his own methods and equipment to perform the bidding of those who purchase his services. For 140 points, Boba Fett provides your Imperial army with a wholly unique unit that operates much differently than your general issue troops.
Boba Fett immediately distinguishes himself from other troops with his three signature command cards. As a bounty hunter, he works independently from the standard chain of command, and these cards give him the power to carry out his employer’s wishes as efficiently as possible. While he may not be able to issue orders to other units, these cards do help him make full use of the deadly gear he wears into battle. For example, he can launch a Z-6 Jetpack Rocket from across the board to stop an approaching AT-RT or other armoured unit in its tracks.
In addition to the gadgets and weapons unlocked by his command cards, Boba Fett always carries a diverse array of weaponry that help him dole out damage. Whether he chooses to launch a Wrist Rocket, fire his carbine, or attack up close with his Boot Spikes, you can be assured that he has the perfect weapon for any situation. Even better, the dice and keywords from his weapons can be combined into a single pool with Boba Fett's Arsenal 2 keyword, giving you the chance to wipe out an entire unit in a single attack.
