Fantasy Flight Games are going to be letting you loose in another expansion for Star Wars: Imperial Assault. The Jabba’s Realm expansion takes you to locations from Return of the Jedi and has you battling against the Hutt and his minions…
After the Battle of Hoth you are working with the Rebels to try and get as many refugees out of the path of the Empire as possible. However, your ship has been shot down over Tatooine and you must not try and escape from Jabba’s Realm.
As well as the new heroes that you get within this set you will also be putting a Rancor down onto the table. Maybe it will have better luck against your heroes than it did against Luke Skywalker?
Your heroes this time round are a Mandalorian warrior named Shyla Varda, a vigilante and gunslinger by the name of Vinto Hreeda and finally the hulking form of Onar Koma, your bodyguard for this expedition.
All of the characters are once again looking original and exciting to play; drawing on the deep resources of the Star Wars universe.
Heroes & Villains
As well as the characters from within the box you can also get some new Hero & Villain Packs which enable you to replace the tokens from the expansion box. For the good guys we have Luke Skywalker himself and the Alliance Rangers.
For the Empire its even more exciting as you not only get yourself a new Stormtrooper character in Captain Terro but also the main man(slug?) himself, Jabba The Hutt. Now you have access to two big models for this expansion!
Essentially if you are a Star Wars fan then you’re going to have a plethora of new exciting things to pick up and play over the coming months. As well as gaming think of the painting potential too!
What do you reckon to the new expansion and packs?
