"You can keep the lightsaber you stole, let it become just another dusty souvenir, or you can give it back and come with us—come with me, and be trained in the ways of the Force. You can learn what it truly means to be a Jedi."
–Kanan Jarrus, Star Wars Rebels
Before Luke Skywalker blew up the dreaded Death Star, before Princess Leia called for aid from an old war hero, before the Rebel Alliance crystalized into a force that would bring down a Galactic Empire, there was Phoenix Squadron. They were a band of rebels who fought against the Empire in the Lothal sector, tucked away in the outer rim of the Star Wars galaxy. Thanks to the crew of the Ghost from Star Wars Rebels, they acheived great success.
Still, Phoenix Squadron has enemies. With the increased Rebel activity in the Lothal sector, the Emperor has sent one of his most trusted and efficient servants, the dreaded Grand Admiral Thrawn, to hunt down and destroy Phoenix Squadron. Sensing profit from chaos, the pirate Hondo Ohnaka hides on the edges of the conflict, more than willing to assist the side with the deepest pockets.
These figure packs contain everything you need to add these heroes and villains to your Imperial Assault campaign and skirmish games! Daring missions, powerful command cards and beautifully sculpted figures await you in each of these packs! These figure packs will release alongside Tyrants of Lothal, and they work in conjunction with the mini-campaign found in that expansion.
Force users are rare in the time of the Rebellion, with Emperor Palpatine twisting them to his own nefarious purposes. The exception to this is the former Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his young Padawan Ezra Bridger. Because of their knowledge of the Force, these two heroes can become valuable allies during your Imperial Assault campaign. Recruiting them to your side will take work, but perhaps a common enemy will bring your heroes and these Force users together...
Kanan’s experience in the ways of the Force can add a tactical advantage to your missions. At the start of Kanan’s activation, the Imperial player selects one Imperial group—that group must be activated next, if able. This decision gives Kanan vital information, as he knows which ready Imperial groups he can safely ignore, and which ones are activating next, giving him important potential targets.
Contrast this with Ezra Bridger’s brashness, which allows him to move up to four spaces at the beginning of each round. While he does not have the foresight of his mentor, his pure speed can get him into the perfect position at the start of a round.
Welcome these Force users into your campaign with the Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus Ally Pack!
HEROES, VILLAINS, AND PIRATES

Grand Admiral Thrawn has arrived, and with him, the threat of the Rebel Alliance being wiped out. In the midst of this chaos waits a pirate hoping to make a profit. The Spectres are strong, but can they stand up to Grand Admiral Thrawn and the tyrants of Lothal?<
