Jabba’s Realm: Card Spoilers inside

A lucky few of you were able to get your hands on some great Imperial Assault goodies at Gencon 2016. Some of the World Championships loot is selling for insane amounts on ebay right now.

The Jabba’s Palace expansion was announced and they posted the initial launch announcement on their website. It’s got lots of new goodies, as well as some ally packs to follow:

Eighteen new double-sided map tiles evoke the opening scenes of Return of the Jedi, giving you access for the first time to Jabba’s palace, his pleasure barge, and iconic locations like the sarlacc pit. Meanwhile, sixteen brand-new plastic figures offer new warriors and heroes for the Imperials, Rebels, and Mercenaries, even as new Command cards, Deployment cards, Agenda cards, and Class cards give you countless ways to customize your game. With characters like Jabba the Hutt, the Rancor, and Luke Skywalker as a Jedi Knight joining the game, this expansion draws you into the Star Wars saga like never before.


FIRSTLY, That Rancor model is sweet. Fantasy Flight haven’t been pulling any punches with their miniatures lately. While they usually come with some mold line work needed, they’re fantastic sculpts and just beg to be painted. We’ll have some tutorials on painting this set as soon as it’s available.

SECONDLY, check out that Stormtrooper with the jetpack. This is the first Imperial Assault miniature with a flying base and he has quite a dynamic pose.

Here’s some other things that stood out with the set reveal that they didn’t highlight in the article:

  • RotJ Luke has Pierce 3 for 1 Surge. Ouch!!!
  • Jabba the Hutt is VERY cheap and saps the shit out of Endurance. It’s likely he has a really shitty attack stat but I’m guessing he has a fairly high health with crap defense. Based on the text he seems like a really utility character, bossing people around for advantage.
    Looks like:

    • Execution Order: Action? -> Another Mercenary figure of your choice may interrupt to perform an attack.
    • Something Incentive: Action? -> A friendly figure of your choice recovers 2 health and becomes Focused.
    • Increase some sort of new action icon by 2.

Between the models and what look like some meta changing stat cards, I think this will make for a great expansion. We’re really enjoying the love and popularity that Imperial Assault is receiving. May it live forever!.
