Fantasy Flight Games have shown off another of the upcoming characters that will soon grace the tabletops of those who play Star Wars: Imperial Assault. Adding a bit of swagger and ‘cool’ to proceedings we have the Alliance Smuggler…
This set gives you another miniature for use in the game which isn’t tied to any big box expansion so it’s entirely new. You get the relevant upgrade cards as well as a new mission called Precious Cargo which can be played as part of a campaign.
In Precious Cargo you have to help the downed Smuggler escape before Imperial forces close in. In doing so he might become an ally for use in later missions. Gameplay wise it looks like the Smuggler is as slippery as the likes of Han Solo would suggest meaning that he can dodge out of the way of incoming fire and generally be a bit of a nuisance.
Will you be picking up the Alliance Smuggler?
