"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.
Heroes, villains, rebels, empires… these distinctions make little difference to the respectable businessman Hondo Ohnaka. Hondo can be a dear friend or a frightful enemy, depending on the size of your pockets. You can make a profit for yourself with the Hondo Ohnaka Villain Pack!
Whenever Hondo declares an attack, the heroes must choose to either increase threat by two or increase the damage of the attack. Furthermore, Hondo increases the threat by two whenever he enters a space with a crate. With these abilities, it’s clear that Hondo is a harbinger of things to come, pushing up the threat and allowing the Imperial player to deploy ever more dangerous groups to fight alongside him against his foes.
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?<
