Three new Ally Packs are on the way for Star Wars: Imperial Assault by Fantasy Flight and it sounds like the start of a bad Sci-Fi joke. Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Grand Inquisitor and Greedo are going to be making themselves known on the tabletop…
We’ll kick things off with a look at a beloved character from Star Wars in Obi-Wan Kenobi. I was so pleased when I realised he chose the name ‘Ben Kenobi’!
The version of Kenobi comes with an ancient lightsabre which is a deadly weapon in its own right. He also comes with a side mission for your campaign where you have to distract and escape an Imperial patrol.
Next up we have The Grand Inquisitor from the Star Wars: Rebels TV show.
This chap is out to destroy the Rebellion by whatever means necessary and comes with a campaign mission plus some interesting skirmish missions too. I really like this miniature with a double bladed lightsabre. A neat miniature channelling the dark side in his other hand.
Last but not least we have someone without the skill to wield a sabre. Instead we have Greedo who is a dab hand with a gun although not quick enough!
He is a cheaper option for the Empire to drop into their games as a Bounty Hunter and while he won’t make a massive impact he can deal out some good damage before he eventually bites the dust. I think it would be fun to do some kind of running battle where you’re trying to escape from Greedo and his thugs.
What do you think of these three new sets?
