From their twitter, on the specialists:

'Also get ready for Rebel Specialists and Imperial Specialists, the game’s first personnel expansions. Non-unique, generic commanders, comms technicians, astro droids and medical droids'.

**** yes!

Yup. I'm more excited about that than I am about Clone Wars tbh, providing they're actually viable and fairly customisable.

Was hoping for Solo & Rogue One content myself, hopefully that's what will fill out the period between Chewie & the Personnel packs and the CW stuff later next year.

Agree, 100%.

 

Clone Wars (which I have no interest in) could be coming right at the end of next year, so there's plenty of time for much more OT content, especially since they have quite a high rate of releases(compared to most other wargames, anyway).

It's definitely true, but no real information until much later. If I understood correctly, Andrew Navarro said more info won't come until November, and that will be X-Wing related. So I guess info for us will come after that.

Said Legion wouldn't be until early next year.

Well....I said I'd be getting into Legion if they added Clones and Clankers so here we go. Also nice to see prequel ships being added to X-Wing as well. Gots to get me some Y-Wings with the armored panels still attached.

I said the same thing! I'll definitely try to get a core of it. Not sure I'll follow it and go to tournaments, though. Runewars is my #1 game at the moment, but I could see myself waiting for the Clone Wars Legion stuff instead of getting into X-Wing 2.0.

No Clone Wars for Armada....yet. But you do have a Super Star Destroyer on the way....that costs $200. :)

So at-at for legion maybe?

Lol, totally called the specialist upgrade pack in the big gencon prediction thread.  I'm excited for clone wars era, I wont buy any, but will be happy to see new factions and playstyles.  Probably just staying with empire for now though.

The personnel packs are a perfect way to bring imperial officers and engineers into the game as well.

It's great that the Officers can be fielded as generic Commanders OR as unit-bound mid-rank officers - clever! 

 

One thing that would make them even better is if each box came with two head variants (Imp - 1 female, 1 male; Reb - 1 human, 1 alien)... if that was the case, I wouldn't hesitate buying 2 boxes of each from the get-go!

Wow! Getting Clone Wars is an exciting step for the game!!

How will they launch two brand new armies though? Massive "Army" packs with a starting force like we got in the base game, maybe? They'll have to have some way of jump-starting the new factions.

It might end up as a new Clones vs CIS starter box.

The best way to do it would probably be a clone wars core set alongside 2 starter armies one for each side containing the same as the core set for those already with a core set

I'd be surprised if they do separate army boxes since the core set is pretty good value and I imagine they'd rather give you two armies to potentially build rather than just one.

If you look at x-wing, it's also possible that they don't do any kind of starter for the new factions and they just expect you to buy units piecemeal.
