Shadow Trooper will be the promo figure available at GenCon 2009. The figure will be available in the minis area at the league table. It will be one per player. No cost.

Well, at one per player, may be hard to get extras. :P

I'm sure if there are any left at the end of the weekend, Moses will hook-up those of us who he knows have good play-groups back home. That's how he ran things last year. We'll do what we can. :)

Glad to see that they are at least doing some sort of promo. Was worried they wouldn't with the League Kits discontinued this year.

The Shadow Trooper promo is not new. I know I recall hearing someone say they got one before, and I could have sworn that I had one lying around somewhere. I just can't find it.

Well, this place seems to be pretty comprehensive-

http://www.miniaturetrading.com/im/sele ... es692/goal

They list the Shadow Trooper promo as such-

Shadow Stormtrooper (LotF / April '08 LotF Barcelona Release Event)

So, I guess it's new if you didn't go to Spain! Anyway, since it is a promo does that mean it isn't black? or is the fig the same and they just redo the base to say promo?

Hard to say. Some promos are identical, just with a different base (see the myriad of orange clone repaints over the years, at least one of which was a promo at one point). Most of the ones they've offered at GenCon were repaints, but if this is one they offered last year in Spain, I'd bet this is just extras from what they had at that event. I don't remember ever hearing about a repaint, so I'd assume it isn't.

I seem to recall the gun being different, or perhaps it was a white fig instead of black. Not sure.
