Impact Grenades

Recommended Posts

Correct, the Rebel Trooper Expansion only comes with a single copy of Impact Grenades.  As does the Stormtrooper Expansion, Snowtrooper Expansion, and Fleet Trooper Expansion.  If you want to run a squad with Impact Grenades you would need to purchase one of these expansion to acquire the card.

Personally, I am planning on picking up two Fleet Trooper boxes which should be plenty of Impact Grenades for my purposes.

You also probably won't actually want to run a copy of Impact Grenades on every unit of Troopers you field.  People love to complain, but in most practical situations, owning 2-3 copies of Impact Grenades from, say, a Rebel Troopers expansion and 2x Fleet Troopers expansions will be plenty.

I would have preferred that the Stormtroopers/Rebel Troopers expansions had come with two copies of Impact Grenades in the same way that the Bikers (and presumably the AT-RT) came with two copies of Comms Jammer.  Such is life.  On the upside, we don't need to buy out of faction expansions to get upgrade cards.  I can focus on Imperials and entirely ignore the Rebel options.  So far, that's better than X-Wing and Armada.

Yup. Beat me to it.

At 800.

Are people finding impact grenades useful at all? 

I would have thought the at st would still be pretty rare

Not in my area. I've played full games against Imperials four times and faced the ATST each time. 

I've used the Impacts in one squad, also had an ion, had a laser cannon on an RT, and had my speeder. That relatively diffuse approach to anti-tank has worked well so far.

Does the Rebel Trooper expansion only come with one copy? Outside of proxy rules does this mean you need to purchase an expansion for every squad you want to run with impact grenades?

I’m more concerned about the inability to run concussion grenades on all the squads.

A core box has 4 copies though. 

And we can run up to 6 squads, more if we decide to scale up to grand army. (Disclosure, no interest in buying a second core set)

I mean, you don't need to have the models either really. 

I just use old bottle caps. Metal beer caps for troops, plastic soda caps for officers/heroes (because they are taller). Works great!

Well, if you don't want a second core at this very moment its quite hard to play at grand army OR need more than four grenades ;)

True, but a second core set would be overkill for regular play (8 cards for 6 squads) or insufficient for grand army (8 cards for 10 squads).

Either way, extra copies of those cards would be important to have outside access to.

Take it easy. It’s a brand new game with very few units. 2 years from now people who only bought every other trooper expansion will have 6.
