Star Wars Miniatures: Legacy of the Force Set Previews

The Legacy of the Force expansion set for the [kwlink]Star Wars Miniatures[/kwlink] game of strategy battles is taking a break from the [kwlink]movies[/kwlink]. It's doing what the next [kwlink]LEGO Star Wars[/kwlink] game needs to - opening up the huge stacks of Star Wars comic books and novels and bringing a bunch of the coolest characters from them to life!

  • Nomi Sunrider Strategy Tips

    Nomi is a fistfull of "Nuh-uh, talk to the hand." just waiting to happen. From messing with any squad that tries to combine fire to the ultimate Force shutdown, she can turn [kwlink]Yoda of Dagobah[/kwlink] into [kwlink]Kermit the Frog[/kwlink] in about six seconds with Force Sever. Yikes! It's hard to use, but no save makes it scary!


    Good Guessers!

    The incredibly speedy Mr. King was on the ball again, guessing this week's previews. In the spirit of not hogging the spotlight - Kazu was hot on his heels and just as correct.

    SWM: General Dodonna

    Figure: General Dodonna
    Faction: Rebel
    Cost: 9
    Hit Points: 30
    Defense: 13
    Attack: +3
    Damage: 10
    Set #: 14/60
    Rarity: Rare


    Special Abilities:

  • Unique
  • Affinity - This character may be in a New Republic squad.
  • Commander Effect:
  • You can choose to activate only one character in each phase. (This includes Droid and Savage characters.)

  • General Dodonna Strategy Tips

    This old guy lets you slowly activate your warriors, forcing your opponent to move all theirs way before you're done. If you have lots of figs with Opportunist, like the Twin Attacking Rodian Scoundrel, or a horde of Chadra-Fan Pickpockets, both from [kwlink]Alliance & Empire[/kwlink], you'll be able to do a lot of damage. Other than that General "Jan" Dodonna is a total wuss. Keep him as safe as possible and make sure everybody stays off his lawn.


    SWM: Yuuzhan Vong Elite Warrior

    Figure: Yuuzhan Vong Elite Warrior
    Faction: Yuuzhan Vong
    Cost: 14
    Hit Points: 50
    Defense: 15
    Attack: +7
    Damage: 10
    Set #: 57/60
    Rarity: Uncommon


    Special Abilities:

  • Force Immunity Enemies cannot affect this character with Force powers, or spend Force points to reroll attacks against this character or to respond to this character's attacks and abilities.
  • Melee Attack
  • Thud Bug - Replaces attacks: Range 6; 10 damage, living target is considered activated this round; save 11 negates. Huge and larger characters ignore the nondamaging effect.
  • Twin Attack - Whenever this character attacks, he makes one extra attack against the same target.
  • Vonduun Crab Armor 11 - When this character takes damage, he can reduce the damage dealt by 10 with a save of 11.

  • Yuuzhan Vong Elite Warrior Strategy Tips

    Even though they can't do much damage, these guys are super annoying to battle. Against big opponents, a shot or two with a Thud Bug and even Darth Bane will spend his turn going "P'durrr..." rather than beating the snot out of your warriors. Against smaller opponents, the crab armor helps keep these warriors alive as they run up and hit them with sticks. They aren't the greatest warriors in the universe, but with some strategy they can be very effective - especially if your opponent is using the Force! Just watch out for [kwlink]AT-STs[/kwlink] and anything with Damage Reduction...

    SWM: Darth Nihl

    Figure: Nihl
    Faction: Sith
    Cost: 42
    Hit Points: 120
    Defense: 20
    Attack: +12
    Damage: 20
    Set #: 6/60
    Rarity: Super Rare


    Special Abilities:

  • Unique

  • Melee Reach 2 - When attacking, this character treats enemies up to 2 squares away as adjacent.
  • Force Powers:
  • Force 4
  • Force Lightning 1 - Force 1, replaces attacks: range 6; 20 damage.
  • Lightsaber Deflect - Force 1: When hit by a nonmelee attack, this character takes no damage with a save of 11.
  • Commander Effect:
  • Each follower within 6 squares gains Flurry Attack.

  • Darth Nihl Strategy Tips

    Mr. King guessed right with the "Raise your other hand." clue - Darth Nihl is Darth Krayt's other hand. He spends his time battling with a weird lightsaber cane, kicking [kwlink]puppies[/kwlink] and having arms lopped off - first he chopped of Wolf Sazen's, then he had one of his own hacked off! With his commander effect he's great at leading minions into battle, giving them a boost while attacking from behind them. His commander effect also combines well with... well you'll see.

  • Force Renewal 1.
  • Force Bubble - Force 1: When this character takes damage, reduce the damage dealt by 20.
  • Force Lightning - Force 1: Replaces attacks, range 6, 20 damage.

  • Darth Talon Strategy Tips

    This deadly Twi'lek sith lord worked as Darth Krayt's right hand, sneaking around the galaxy and doing his dirty work. In the minis game she's great for sneaking around in cover, only to pop out and stick her [kwlink]lightsaber[/kwlink] up someone's nose - twice! Get her to scoot around one side of the battlefield while the rest of your squad goes the other way, then keep her alive with Force Bubble and have her clobber your opponent's warriors from behind. If you can manage it without losing her Loner bonus, team her up with [kwlink]Dannik Jerriko[/kwlink] to give your opponent a real headache!
