I'm wrapping up the coverage of the wave two expansions for Imperial Assault with a look at the first expansion for the game Twin Shadows.
- ten damage tokens (four fives, six ones)
- Six device tokens
- Six strain tokens
- Five weaken tokens
- Four ally and villain tokens (just in case you haven't bought the villain and allies packs that also came out at the same time).
- Eight ID tokens
The game also comes with twelve more map tiles.
In this expansion we get ten new miniatures. Two rebel characters called Saska Teft (below left) and Biv Bodhrik.
Followed by another nine cards making up a hero class deck for Biv.
There are eleven deployment cards. However five of them are also found in the Ally and Villian packs that came out at the same time (these are used with the tokens if you don't have them). So I've just included the new deployment cards here.
And as expected there are deployment cards for the two new rebel characters also.
There are four weaken status cards (these are also used in the campaign).
We also get three command cards.
I like this expansion it adds new content to the base game. The expansion lives up to the FFG reputation for providing beautiful looking high quality games.
As a noob skirmish player I'm not sure I'd be playing with the new rebel characters. But that is mainly because I still think that the rebels are grossly under powered compared to the Empire. However the Heavy Stormtroopers I can see being used. I'm going to have to think about the Tusken Raiders.
Right I now need to play this more, get sleeve for the cards, and push on with my painting.
