Fantasy Flight Games continue their one-company war on wallets everywhere with the announcement of the first major Imperial Assault expansion Twin Shadows as well as three new ally and villain packs.
The expansion is based on Tatooine and will introduce some of the most obvious omissions from the base game and wave one of ally and villain packs. The Twin Shadows expansion itself will feature the cards for Boba Fett, R2-D2 and C3-PO along with two new Rebel Heros and two new Imperial villains (Tusken Raider and Heavy Storm Troopers). It also includes new map tiles and a string of missions which can be added to the main campaign or be run as a mini-campaign.
Three new ally and villain packs will add more missions and the figures for Fett, R2 and Threepio and Stormtrooper commander Kayn Somos.
While the expansion is a welcome addition, it does seem a bit of a cheat to include Fett on the box art for Twin Shadows when the figure itself will be a separate villain pack. It ranks just below having to pay £70 for the Imperial Raider in order to make the TIE/Advanced useable in the X-Wing Miniatures game. The real verdict will depend on how much it costs though.
