Stormtroopers may form the bulk of the Galactic Empire’s infantry forces, but sometimes more elite troopers are needed to secure key positions and pave the way for other Imperial forces. Scout Troopers meet this need. These soldiers are capable of both working in large groups and smaller teams, their specialised training making them particularly dangerous.
Within the Scout Troopers Unit Expansion, you’ll find a squad of seven unpainted, easily assembled Scout Trooper miniatures that can be used to field two different special forces units: a standard squad or a two-miniature strike team. Additionally, the five upgrade cards included with this expansion can be added to the Scout Troopers or another unit, giving you more options for outfitting your Star Wars: Legion armies.
The conflicts of the Galactic Civil War rage across innumerable planets, each with their own unique terrain that could impact the battles that are fought there. If the Empire wants to conquer these planets, it needs specialised soldiers who can go in first and lead the way for the rest of its troops. Fortunately, the Empire’s elite have arrived. Diversify your army with some special forces troopers and clear a path for the rest of your Imperial army!
Hand-picked from the best troops the Empire has to offer, Scout Troopers are prepared to take on the toughest missions, including advanced reconnaissance and infiltration. Now, you can add these elite troops to your Imperial ranks with the Scout Troopers Unit Expansion. This expansion features seven unpainted, easily assembled Scout Trooper miniatures, along with all the cards and tokens you need to add these versatile troops to your army.
At 60 points for a standard four-miniature unit, the Scout Troopers have the skills to support their corps counterparts. Their EC-17 Hold-out Blasters contribute two black dice to an attack, making them brutally effective at close range, and their Low Profile and Scout 1 keywords ensure that they can move in close enough to launch an attack. When they do, few troops are more effective marksmen, with the Sharpshooter 1 ability mitigating the benefits of any cover their targets might cower behind.
But the Scout Troopers are capable of much more than leading the way for other infantry. Adding heavy weapons miniatures makes them even more versatile and perfect for tackling a variety of tasks. Adding a DLT-19x Sniper miniature to your squad suddenly makes your Scout Troopers lethal from anywhere on the board. Opponents rarely suspect attacks from such great distance and, if your sniper is the only one firing at a target, it shoots with such High Velocity that the defender cannot hope to dodge out of the way.
Meanwhile, if you’d like to use your Scout Troopers at extremely close range, you can add a Sonic Charge Saboteur to your squad to disrupt enemy operations. One of these explosives experts can seed the field with Sonic Charges, blocking your opponent’s path to critical objectives or breaking up their lines of fire.
