Jedi have control over powerful semi-mystical forces, giving them the ability to perform feats so astounding they seem like magic. Telekinesis, choke-holds, mind-fogging, wamprat targeting – all of these are within a Jedi’s grasp. But what if you don’t have a kindly old hermit/former Jedi Knight around to teach you how to fight with the blast shield down? That’s where Jedi Academy comes in. We’ve got full stat cards for five new Star Wars Miniatures.
The actual Jedi Academy was formed by Luke Skywalker more than a decade after the destruction of the first Death Star. He used it to train new Jedis and form the New Jedi Order, but it was eventually destroyed and moved to other locations by Luke’s successors.
The Jedi Academy expansion for Star Wars Miniatures doesn’t refer to any specific academy; the figures depicted are teachers and students of Jedi learning, along with a healthy dose of their enemies. You can expect to find a lot of force using characters in this set, although there are plenty of force-haters, too. Here are five figures from the upcoming set (the release date is June 30th). And stay tuned, Star Wars fans – next week, we’ll have another preview, a never-before seen figure exclusive to Robot Viking.
Powerful, but can you afford to surround yourself with warriors of such questionable loyalty?
It can’t be reasoned with, it can’t be bargained with. It doesn’t feel pain or remorse, and it absolutely will not stop until you are dead.
Rollin’ down Mos Eisley smokin’ spice, sippin’ on Corellian whiskey,
Laid back with my mind on a Jedi and a Jedi on my mind.
A heavy melee attack unit, the war droid will benefit from another figure with the ability to get him into the middle of the enemy’s front line.
One of the cheapest flying units in the game, a group of these droids will let you take full advantage of the terrain.
