The odds are constantly stacked against the forces of the Rebel Alliance. Relentlessly hunted by the Galactic Empire, the Rebels find themselves under-equipped and outgunned in almost every battle. Instead of superior firepower, the Rebellion must rely on a steadfast belief in their cause to keep fighting. When the situation seems dire, Rebel troops look to their leaders like Leia Organa for the inspiration they need to push back against the might of the Empire.
Leia Organa did everything she could to keep the hope of the Rebellion alive throughout the Galactic Civil War, from attempting to reach Tatooine in search of Obi-Wan Kenobi to joining the strike team that brought down the shield protecting the second Death Star. Working closely with both Rebel commanders and troops, she became one of the most enduring leaders of the Rebel Alliance.
Alongside the single unpainted, easily assembled miniature representing Leia Organa, this expansion contains everything you need to add her to your army as a commander. Three command cards bring Leia Organa’s personal touch to every battle while giving you more options for selecting your battle plan. Finally, several upgrade cards allow you to further customise your army, promising new possibilities for your Rebel forces.
As the second Rebel Alliance commander released for Star Wars: Legion, Leia Organa gives you more flexibility when building your Rebel army. She can be used as an alternative to Luke Skywalker, or, if you want to take advantage of both Luke’s blossoming Force abilities and Leia’s inspiring presence in battle, you could have them work side-by-side.
No matter what you choose, Leia Organa brings her own style to the unsung infantry battles of the Star Wars galaxy. She might not be as formidable a warrior as Luke, but she is more than capable in a fight. Equally skilled in martial arts as she is with a blaster, Leia Organa notably rolls the same pool of three black attack dice for both melee and ranged attacks. Her ranged attacks are slightly more potent, however, thanks to Leia’s Sharpshooter 2 ability reducing her target's cover and her Defender Sporting Blaster piercing through enemy armour to cancel one of the defender’s dodge results.
Despite her combat prowess, Leia Organa is known more as a leader, working closely with troops in the field to complete objectives. At only 90 points, she is far cheaper than Luke Skywalker, giving you more space in your army for other units. The 70 points you’ll save could be used to add a unit of Rebel Troopers complete with a Z-6 Trooper to your army, for example, giving you even more ranged firepower.
