Jyn Erso and Rebel Pathfinders announced for Star Wars Legion!

For many Star Wars fans there is a division over the first movie that was not in the main stream of Star Wars, Rogue One.  Some see it as a none needed space filler that shouldn’t have been made, while others defend it fiercely and feel it is the best in the franchise since The Empire Strikes Back!

Fantasy Flight Games have just announced that early in 2019 we will see not one, but two new expansions for its hugely popular skirmish game Star Wars: Legions. Firstly we will see the main protagonist from Rogue One, Jyn Erso released as a new Rebel commander, and she will be joined by the release of the Rebel Pathfinders!

Both expansions will add extra punch to rebel commanders forces everywhere, with the survivors of Scarif, the Pathfinders; being more than willing to do what it takes to get one up against the Empire! 

Jyn will lead by example and always be in the thick of battle, often flanked by the rough veterans of the Pathfinders.

Both expansions will be in stores in early 2019, expect more coverage soon.

So what do you think about these expansions?  Are you a fan of Rogue One and looking forward to using Jyn on the tabletop?  Or would you have preferred to have seen something else released instead, and if so what?  Let us know in the comments below!

Jyn Erso and the Rebel Pathfinder Expansion Packs, are now available to order from Fantasy Flight Games directly, or your local games store.  Gamers Web recommends 6s2hit.com for great value and up to 25% discount on retail prices!
