Kind of a pointless forum I know, but it seems that we’re not going to go wanting for expansions, so I’m curious about what other people want to see in the future. Just for fun you know, and maybe FFG will pay attention to this (you better, ffg, this is a real money making opportunity)

So the way this works (just to keep this friendly and just for fun); give 1 unit type that you want, 1 faction specific unit, and 1 entire faction that you want to see in the game. If you also want to add what you think these units could be able to do, have at it!

For example:

Sniper units: this unit would be extremely effective at ranges longer than the range ruler, but horrendous at close combat. They would roll 2 dice (red and black) and would need to spend 1 hit result to even be able to deal out damage.(would need 2 to deal 1 damage). The unit consists of a single soldier, the sniper, but could add a spotter through an upgrade card. The spotter allows the sniper to roll an additional black die (increasing the odds of actually being able to deal out damage) and would carry a close range weapon to protect from closer targets. They can only receive damage at long range from other snipers but could still be suppressed by other long-range weapons (AT-ST mortar for example)

Death Troopers: kind of self-explanatory, an elite version of stormtroopers. (Cooler looking model too lol). More accurate, better armor and the ability to be “air-dropped”. They would be able to deploy within a certain range of a friendly unit during that friendly units turn (obviously they wouldn’t activate that round). You sacrifice initial troop strength with the ability to drop reinforcements when you really need them. Unit size is about 4 soldiers.

As for a faction I am torn between Mandalorians and the CIS. However since I’m guessing Mandalorians would be included with scum and villainy, I’ll say CIS. Plenty of droid units didn’t respond to the shut down order after the Clone Wars so it’s perfectly likely that the Rebels and Empire would encounter and battle these forces. Destroyer droids that can set up and be able to eliminate entire squads, but be extremely vulnerable while moving could be an interesting risk/reward system that a lot of players could appreciate.

So that’s my three, look forward to what all you guys think should be added to the game

Unit type: Melee specialists. Like in Force Awakens when troopers start fighting with kickass melee weapons. Let's see some specialized close combat fighters in squads.

Specific unit: Sandtrooper on dewback. Just because.

New faction: Mistryl Shadow Guard

Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

Ewoks are what I was looking for, too. I want to build an Ewok army to bring to the table, just because.

Rocket troopers(troopers with jetpacks not AT missiles)

Buzz droids, fast and agile, with 2 melee attacks. One good against infantry and one good against vehicles. Low health and maybe only 2 in a unit with a slot for 1 more.

Droid faction with leftover Battle droids from the Clone wars, there are plenty of references to them in the GCW period in the new canon. This is the faction I would really like to play as.

With only 2 "true" factions, we're going to need to see a LOT of variety (a la X-Wing" to make the game have legs and keep players from always bringing the same things to the table.

I hope they go HUGE with this game.

I want to see all of the Bounty Hunters, and have rules that both factions can use them (at least some of them)

Fett
Dengar
Zuckuss and 4-LOM
IG-88
Bossk
Greedo
And some generic "bounty hunters/mercs"

Ewoks, yes!

I do think Clone Wars characters would be great in this game, would love to see Battle Droids but who knows- maybe if the game is really successful they'll release a clone wars edition.


I really want to see some more cool land vehicles, gun emplacements, and some wandering monsters that move on their own would be cool, like a Wampa or rancor or something that both players need to battle or avoid.

Ewoks and Porg expansion that are costed so that it no longer makes sense to use any of the original 'standard' units.

More and more powerful upgrade cards that you can only get by buying units that you don't want.

<jaded>


I might be tempted to buy the dice pack. I'm slowly accumulating dice with differing numbers of varying symbols so that I can simulate almost anything...No, really I am tempted to buy this without the game. Comes from tinkering with game designs.

The way I see it we need original trilogy / rogue one figures as a priority:

Imperial probes
Wookies
E-webs (as in IA)
Jetpack Stortroopers
Hoth turrets
Boba Fett
Sand troopers / Dewback
Jedi masters / padawans
Baze Malbus / Chirrut Imwe / Cassian / K2-SO (+ imperial version)
Death troopers
Hoth figures (must be coming naturally)

Later it would be fun to have separatists droid army vs clone troopers.

More terrain like crashed AT-AT head in right scale, escape pods, etc..

Lots of things, but I'm sure FFG won't fail to deliver

Mara Jade would be so cool - one mini, with a card for both factions of you can play either side of her career

Would really like to see a Kyle Katarn or maybe even some pre-era characters like Nomi Sunrider, Ulic Qel-Droma or a real tangent... how about Kyp Darron or Thall Joben and Kea Moll.

Kyp Durron? Are you serious? Kevin J Anderson was the worst thing to happen to Star Wars since the holiday special. Durron should have died. Or better yet, those books should have never been written. Disney did us a favor excising them from the canon.

I would like to see generic commanders, or at the least Riekan, dodonna, capt antilles, bail, and other lesser known leaders... hate the idea of Vader and Luke in every battle. Lower rank ones as well
