Imperial Assault: Twin Shadows

Recommended Posts

I really like that C3PO and R2-D2 are packaged together.

 

It's a nice bonus.  A lone R2-D2 pack would feel lacklustre.

 

I wonder if this mini campaign will be playable as additional side missions in the core set.  I believe that is how Descent Second Edition worked, but before the mini campaigns it never had side missions?

I imagine it will all be playable together.

 

Ah, are you thinking they will share the same base?  Effectively being one unit?

 

Edit:

 

You are talking about the mini campaign.  My bad!

Arglebargle!

 

 

So excited!

 

The least energetic googling possible suggests that Kayn Somos is a new character? Looks to be in trooper armor, can't work out what's happening in his neck/head area though.

Those who play D2e... do you have any idea what might come in that box?

I'm guessing a campaign book, that's a dozen or so story and side missions. Some new tiles for those missions, some skirmish stuff too since it's IA.

But are we likely to see any new models? Since Boba is being sold separately, I'm assuming he wouldn't be in there.

But $40 for a dozen missions and some tiles seems a bit high...

Neat. I assume the 'twin shadows' are him and Boba. Sounds like it could have more of a 'you are being hunted' vibe than the current campaign where you are actively engaging the Empire with a specific goal in mind.

 

I'm glad they are parsing out the 'big name' characters. Would be silly to throw Leia, Lando etc. all out at once.

 

I'm guessing that R2 and 3PO will be seperate? R2 updating his space blog while 3PO gets lost on the other side of the base/ eaten/ scrapped is pretty much required.

I'd bet money there are at least a few models in there as well.  Maybe usable in skrmish, maybe not, but it's hard to create a new setting without throwing in a few beasties at the very least.

So, to guess at content, the best price comparison is the Manor of Ravens expansion which is also $39.95. (SW royalties might make direct price comparisons unfair?).

Anyway, that apparently includes 10 figures, 60 cards and 16 double sided map tiles. 2 of those figures are heros, which sounds about right.

What does it say?! It's a broken link for me.

 

EDIT: Also, when can we expect to learn a little bit more about this? Are they talking about it in detail at the expo, or are we going to have to go weeks or months just having a picture?

Generally, the small expansions for Descent have 2 heroes and 2 monster groups.

I'm assuming it's about FFG talking about how they have renewed the license for a signficant amount of time.

I really hate twitter:

 

FFG has renewed Star Wars license for many years. Includes Episode 7.
