A Preview of the TIE Aggressor Expansion Pack for X-Wing Miniatures

TIE Agressor

 

TIE Agressor“Squad leaders, we’ve picked up a new group of signals. Enemy fighters coming your way.”
A New Hope

At the conclusion of the Clone Wars, and after the defeat of the Separatist Alliance, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine eliminated the Galactic Republic. He reformed it as the Galactic Empire and appointed himself its Emperor.

This Empire possessed a different character than its Republic predecessor, and as its vast military sought to establish order among the galaxy’s countless star systems, the Imperial Navy changed to reflect the Empire’s new character. The old Republic vessels were almost immediately repainted, and they were slowly retired in favor of new Imperial craft—imposing Star Destroyers and staggering quantities of TIEs.

Flying in the skies of occupied worlds, these TIEs served as reminders of the Empire’s power and ambition. They helped establish its cruel order. They represented the Empire and its tyrannical regime. And they are the ubiquitous reminders of the Empire’s far-reaching military might in X-Wing.

From the Classic Core Set and Wave I through the releases of the TIE interceptor, TIE bomber, TIE phantom, TIE defender, TIE advanced prototype, and TIE Striker, the TIE fighter and its many variants have fought to preserve the Empire’s interests throughout the galaxy and around the globe.

Now, the upcoming release of the TIE Aggressor Expansion Pack looks to add new muscle and utility to this line of TIE variants, even as it hews closely to the aesthetics and mechanics that allow it to serve as an unmistakable symbol of Imperial power.


A 360-degree view of the TIE aggressor.

Performance and Versatility

During the development of the TIE aggressor, Sienar Fleet Systems valued performance and versatility over raw cost efficiency. Its unique weapons loadout and maneuverability were carefully balanced so that it would thrive in extended engagements, and it was flown primarily by elite pilots specifically trained to leverage the ship to full effect.

In X-Wing, the TIE aggressor’s weapons loadout consists of a primary weapon with an attack value of “2,” plus the ability to equip a turret and as many as two missiles—or the new Unguided Rockets upgrade. And these upgrade slots, considered alongside the ship’s relatively open maneuver dial, allow you to adapt the TIE aggressor to nearly any role in your squad.

  • You could outfit a Sienar Specialist with a Twin Laser Turret and the Lightweight Frame modification to run it as a cheap flanker.

You could even build a squad with four of these Sienar Specialists and buzz around your opponents, stinging them with a series of shots fired from long range.

  • Alternatively, you could fly a number of these Sienar Specialists equipped with Unguided Rockets, using them in your squad much like a set of extra durable TIE interceptors whose attack dice cannot be modified except if you spend a focus token for its standard effect.

This serves as a necessary restriction because of the upgrade’s potential interaction with Guidance Chips , and it means that “Howlrunner” can’t really boost your TIE aggressor wing. But it also means your opponent can’t force you to reroll your dice with M9-G8 or convert your hits to focus results with a Sensor Jammer .

  • And if you’re looking to have your TIE aggressor do more than simply damage your opponent’s ships, you can add a measure of control by equipping an Ion Cannon Turret or Ion Pulse Missiles .

Even a single Sienar Specialist can add a lot of control to your list when equipped with an Ion Cannot Turret, Ion Pulse Missiles, and Guidance Chips, and it does so for just twenty-five squad points. Or if you’re concerned about your pilot skill value, you could drop the Ion Pulse Missiles and Guidance Chips and fly an Onyx Squadron Escort with an Ion Cannon Turret at a pilot skill value of “5” for just twenty-four squad points.

Press the Attack

Even among the limited number of elite pilots the Empire trained to fly the TIE aggressor, some stood head and shoulders above the rest. You’ll find two of these ace pilots in the TIE Aggressor Expansion Pack— Lieutenant Kestal and “Double Edge.”

At a pilot skill value of “7,” Lieutenant Kestal is the quickest shot among the expansion’s various pilots and the one best able to react to her enemies’ maneuvers. She’s also the most aggressive of them, capitalizing upon the accuracy of her Synced Turret with a unique pilot ability that allows her to spend a focus token to cancel all of an opponent’s blank and defense results.

Lieutenant Kestal is also an excellent candidate for elite pilot talents like  Predator and Expertise , especially if she’s firing multiple modified shots from a Twin Laser Turret.

Here, it’s worth noting that Kestal’s ability to cancel all of her opponent’s blank and defense results works even if she’s firing outside her arc—making her an excellent counter to any enemy ships equipped with Autothrusters .

Alternatively, you could capitalize upon her above average pilot skill by sending her to battle with the elite pilot talent, Intensity . So equipped, Lieutenant Kestal doesn’t have to choose between focusing or performing her barrel roll to line up the shot she most desires. Instead, she can barrel roll and flip Intensity to gain her focus token, as well.

At a later point, Lieutenant Kestal can then spend a focus token to flip and refresh her Intensity. In this way, over the course of multiple rounds, she can get the most from her shots with her Synced Turret, and even if she ends up without a target in arc, she still gains utility from her combat tokens.

Where Lieutenant Kestal excels at pushing her advantages, the expansion’s other ace, “Double Edge,” is a relentless hunter whose unique pilot ability is roughly the equivalent of a built-in Gunner upgrade. Once per round, after he performs a secondary weapon attack that doesn’t hit, he can perform another attack with a different weapon.

This makes “Double Edge” another good candidate for the Predator or Expertise upgrades since both modify multiple attacks, but it also makes him an ideal pilot to wield the notoriously fickle Unguided Rockets. They don’t cost many of your squad points, they offer a good increase on the raw number of dice his ship can fire, and it doesn’t matter so much if he hits or misses with those rockets.

In fact, the truth is that there are multiple ways to take advantage of his misses. A nearby Operations Specialist might pass a focus token to another ship. Or if you gave “Double Edge” an Ion Cannon Turret, you could force an enemy pilot to spend his focus and evade tokens to avoid taking an ion token. That would then leave the target without tokens as you fire your XX-23 S-thread Tracers to give all your TIE bombers the target locks they need to line up their awe-inspiring barrage of Proton Torpedoes .


“Double Edge” forces Poe Dameron to make a difficult decision—spend the focus to avoid being ionized, or take the ion token so that “Double Edge” can’t fire his XX-23 S-thread Tracers and potentially give the TIE bombers the target locks they need to unload their Proton Torpedoes.

The Role Player

While the TIE aggressor can be outfitted to play many different roles, there is one role that it doesn’t play very well. It doesn’t quite fit into the standard TIE swarm. It doesn’t feature the raw efficiency that the TIE fighter offers when you weigh its attack and agility against its squad-point cost. You could likely find a great deal of success with four Sienar Specialists outfitted with Twin Laser Turrets, but even so, you wouldn’t fly them as a swarm; you would want to fly them out of formation.

The TIE aggressor just isn’t a swarm ship. It’s a role player. It begs to be assigned a unique duty within your squadron, whether as a flanker, an ace, or a control ship that balances the main thrust of your squad with an entirely different sort of threat. It begs exploration.

Star Wars Destiny Spirit Of Rebellion Expansion Red Villain Preview

With the release of the Spirit of Rebellion Expansion for Star Wars: Destiny fast approaching, fans of the collectible card and dice game are finding themselves waiting excitedly for May. Thankfully, we have some great posts like this one from Fantasy Flight Games where we can get a closer look at the upcoming expansion. Explore the Star Wars: Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Expansion‘s villains to get a glimpse into some of the characters, events and gameplay changes that are coming with the newest release!Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Red Villains Preview 1

Stormtroopers in Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Expansion

All around the galaxy, Stormtroopers are feared for their deadly accurate aim with their trusty blasters. However, some like FN-2199 (Spirit of Rebellion, 2), the loyal Stormtrooper who once went toe-to toe with Finn in melee combat, are prepared for any type of fight. FN-2199’s Star Wars: Destiny version makes him a master of any tool, able to roll a weapon’s die whenever you play one on him, and then immediately resolve it. This allows for instant speed rolls from some of the most dangerous dice in the game, and if the weapon has the “Ambush” keyword like the Holdout Blaster  (Awakenings, 63), you can equip it, roll its die, resolve it, and then take another action! FN-2199 also has three sides on his character die showing damage, one showing a shield, and another showing a resource, making him a consistent threat with several support options. At ten points for a normal version or 13 points for an elite, FN-2199 can improve any team you place him on, especially if you have a deck full of weapons.

Weapons in Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Z6 Riot Control Baton
Plenty of options for your stormtroopers, such as this Z6 Riot Control Baton

Spirit of Rebellion introduces plenty of weapons for FN-2199 to use, including the  Z6 Riot Control Baton (Spirit of Rebellion, 8).

Though the baton has two blank sides, you can reroll the die when you initially roll it into your pool, giving you a second chance to get the results you’re looking for. With a 50/50 chance to roll multiple melee damage, playing the baton gives you high odds of hitting your opponent, and if you play it on FN-2199, you get to resolve that damage right away.

If your soldiers prefer a blaster, the DT-29 Heavy Blaster Pistol (Spirit of Rebellion, 7) features one side of ranged damage, two sides of modified ranged damage, one side showing a shield, and a special symbol that allows you to remove an opponent’s die showing a resource cost. The damage, protection, and disruption the blaster offers make it a versatile weapon fit for any Red Villain deck.

Support Characters in Spirit of Rebellion Expansion for Star Wars Destiny

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion TIE Pilot
Support Characters Like This TIE Fighter Prevent Disruption From Your Opponent

With the pure firepower of red characters, sometimes an opponent’s only defense is to disrupt your dice, using effects to remove them before they can be resolved. Even your best laid plans can be destroyed with the removal of your key die. Luckily, characters like Tie Pilot (Spirit of Rebellion, 4) can provide protection for your arsenal. The pilot not only provides plenty of modified ranged damage but also protects your other dice showing ranged damage symbols, preventing them from being removed by tricky effects from your opponent! The Tie Pilot’s die is rounded out with a focus symbol and a resource symbol, providing a valuable support option for eight points.

Support Your Battles With Events And Support In Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Expansion

 

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Supply Line
Reroll your dice for free with Supply Line

The military might of the Star Wars galaxy needs the resources to supply their armies, and Spirit of Rebellion offers plenty of ways to get these. One of the most efficient is Supply Line (Spirit of Rebellion, 51), a support card that’s die not only has three sides that enhance your resources and another that has a focus symbol, but a special ability that allows you to reroll any amount of your dice. The ability to reroll any amount of dice without losing a card from your hand allows you to remain consistent and efficient.

 

 

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Imperial War Machine
Imperial War Machine increases effectiveness by reducing the cost of battle

Imperial War Machine (Spirit of Rebellion, 62) helps pump your economy in a more unorthodox way, letting you resolve a die with a resource symbol for free. Not only does this help you save valuable resources for other purposes, but it can provide the element of surprise if one of your die is showing a resource symbol that your opponent thinks you have no way to resolve.

Red Card Gameplay Tips for the Spirit of Rebellion Expansion

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Director Krennic
Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion Death Trooper

As with Awakenings, red characters thrive when they control the battlefield. We’ve already revealed Director Krennic (Spirit of Rebellion, 3) and his loyal Death Troopers (Spirit of Rebellion, 1), but plenty of other cards in Spirit of Rebellion give red characters a boost when they control the battlefield. An E-Web Emplacement (Spirit of Rebellion, 5) is damaging right out of the gate, but if you control the battlefield, the value of each of its sides is increased by one, giving you the ability to do multiple ranged damage on four of its sides or provide three shields to one of your characters. All of these die sides are high impact, whether its damaging your opponent with massive ranged damage or protecting your own characters with a myriad of shields. When getting a boost from controlling the battlefield, an E-Web Emplacement will be one of your most important dice.

Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion E-Web Emplacement

 

Even if the odds of damaging your opponent seem likely, there is always the chance that something goes wrong. Those who would stand against your forces may begin to think they can slip through your grasp, but as long as Red Villains have the battlefield, they can overcome any obstacle. We Have Them Now (Spirit of Rebellion, 68) allows you to change four of your die to sides showing melee or ranged damage. For a mere two resources, you can turn an entire field of blanks into a barrage of damage. You can even combine We Have Them Now with the new battlefield Secret Facility’s (Spirit of Rebellion, 159) ability to immediately resolve three of your freshly turned damage die while simultaneously keeping control of the battlefield, allowing you to retain your advantage without disrupting your tempo.
Star Wars Destiny Spirit of Rebellion We Have Them NowThis element of surprise can also be seen in Lockdown (Spirit of Rebellion, 63)—if you spot two red characters, you can take control of the battlefield without claiming it. Perhaps most importantly, Lockdown has the “Ambush” keyword, meaning you can steal the battlefield from your opponent to turn on effects like E-Web Emplacement or We Have Them Now, and use them immediately, taking your opponent completely by surprise.
Unrelenting Force
Controlling the Battlefield and raw firepower is a sure path to victory for Red Villains in Star Wars: Destiny, and Spirit of Rebellion looks to expand on those concepts. Whether it’s manipulating your dice rolls for massive damage or equipping your loyal soldiers with powerful weapons, Red Villains always have a way to overwhelm their opponent and squash the Spirit of Rebellion.

There Are A Lot More Star Wars Movie Posters Than You Ever Imagined

Star Wars Movie Poster - Episode 4 A New Hope

Gracing the rooms of Star Wars fans everywhere, nothing stakes a claim on the theme of a room or sets the mood for a nice collection of Star Wars memorabilia as great Star Wars movie posters do.  From the classic original Star Wars (A New Hope) to the latest (The Last Jedi, which now has some advance movie posters showing up) there is something for everyone.

Star Wars Movie Posters

These posters are a great addition to a room. Since there are so many options, even multiples for the same film, you can really choose just the right posters for you. For example, you could pick your favorite from each episode to display as a large gallery. Or, you could select several from one film for a smaller and more thematic collection.

There are some movie poster collections that are available. However, the problem is that when you select a movie poster collection, you get somebody else’s choice. As you can see from this list, you have several posters available for each film. So even if the collection was a lower price per poster, you may get your first choice of posters from some films but not from others.

All of these movie posters are 27″ x 40″, which is the same size as a theater movie poster. These movie posters really set the tone for your den, family room or home theater. Even though they are not limited edition Star Wars wall art, or come with certificates of authenticity, they add character to the room and look awesome in a nice frame!

Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace Movie Posters

The teaser poster for The Phantom Menace is one of the most iconic of all Star Wars movie posters. Even though it came out more than 20 years after the original Star Wars movie, the image of the young Anakin casting the shadow of Darth Vader really intrigued fans. Because of this, the teaser poster became a very popular poster and still makes a great addition to a Star Wars movie poster collection. Also available from The Phantom Menace are theatrical posters for standard and 3-D releases.

Star Wars Episode 2: The Attack of the Clones Movie Posters

The teaser poster for Episode 2: Attack of the Clones shows Anakin and Padme together, but facing apart.  The text, “A Jedi Shall Not Know Anger, Nor Hatred, Nor Love,” sets the tone. While this does a good job of teasing the film, it seems to lack the intrigue of the teaser poster from The Phantom Menace. However, once you have started collecting Star Wars movie posters, it makes sense to include it. Also available is the theatrical release poster.

Star Wars Episode 3: The Revenge of the Sith Movie Posters

The Revenge of the Sith teaser is a darker image than Attack of the Clones. With Anakin’s menacing face holding Darth Vader’s red lightsaber, everyone knows what’s in store. Similar to the teaser poster for Attack of the Clones, the Revenge of the Sith teaser poster is not all that popular on its own. However, for Star Wars movie poster collectors, it makes sense to get it. And of course, there’s the theatrical release poster.

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope Movie Posters

If you only have one Star Wars movie poster, it’s likely going to be one of these. This is because Episode 4: A New Hope sets the standard for Star Wars movie posters. Whether you go for the lightsaber or the blaster version, these are the posters that you’ll want to base your collection around.

Star Wars Episode 5: The Empire Strikes Back Movie Posters

From the ominous teaser poster to the Special Edition theatrical release, the Empire Strikes back movie posters are dramatic and statement making additions to any Star Wars movie poster collection. First, the teaser poster shows the dark and ominous Darth Vader superimposed over the galaxy. Then there are multiple theatrical release posters that highlight characters and scenes from what is probably the most popular sequel of all time!

Star Wars Episode 6: The Return of the Jedi Movie Posters

Many don’t know that before it was called “Return of the Jedi,” Episode 6 was going to be called “Revenge of the Jedi”. However, the idea of revenge was not a guiding principle of the Jedi. Eventually, the name was dropped, but not before the teaser posters had been sent out. Because of this name change, the Revenge of the Jedi posters are very popular.

For not being part of the main character storyline, Rogue One has been a complete success. The movie is great, and the movie posters are, too!

Star Wars Episode VII Force Awakens Wall Art

Sunset Vigil by Jerry Vanderstelt, a Star Wars the Force Awakens Fine Art Print

Star Wars has been inspiring artists for decades, and the new characters and settings from the Episode VII: The Force Awakens is no different. These Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens Wall Art pieces are beautiful limited-edition Giclee prints, signed by the artists.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Wall Art

These are NOT simple poster-quality prints. They Star Wars Giclee Prints are high quality, and use a professional ink printing process. These prints do cost more. But the cost of these prints are in line with the printing process and the level of detail that each brings to the Star Wars characters, ships and scenes. Additionally, these are all exclusive, limited edition prints. Because of their limited availability, you will not find these prints as posters, and you won’t find them in mass-market retailer. Also, you won’t see these prints on other people’s walls- they are a very unique conversation piece.

Where There is Darkness, There is Light by Brian Rood

Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens Art by Brian Rood Darkness Light Giclee Print
Where There is Darkness There Is Light by Brian Rood

Brian Rood has several pieces in this list. And it’s easy to see why! Just notice the stunning details and colors in this print.  Where There is Darkness, There is Light is a 30″x20″ Giclee print, with a limited print run of 95. Each print is signed by the artist and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

TIE Fighter Down by Stephan Martiniere

 

"Star

TIE Fighter Down shows the barren yet beautiful landscape of Jakku. And this is one of my favorite pieces. In this piece,  Rey and BB-8 are overlooking the wreckage of a crashed TIE Fighter.

This Star Wars wall art has a higher print run than many of the other pieces in this list, with the limited edition release of 295 prints. However, they won’t be available for long. For one thing, the art is beautiful and dramatic. Also, it’s a great size, 30″ tall x 20″ wide, so it’s perfect for framing and placing on a large open wall. Finally, like the other fine art giclee prints in this list, artist Stephane Martiniere has signed each print and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Star Wars Wall Art - Episode 7 BB-8 Astromech
BB-8 Astromech by Mike Kungl
Star Wars The Force Awakens Wall Art - First Order Kylo Ren
First Order Ren by Mike Kungl

Mike Kungl does beautiful graphic work that blends modern design into science fiction and fantasy worlds. Because of his unique style and big talent, he’s becoming very popular. For example, The Big Bang Theory has used his work in their set design. (If you’re a fan of the show, it’s the “Defend and Protect” X-Wing art in Leonard’s Room).

Kungl continues to expand his Star Wars art designs with these two fantastic Star Wars Giclee Prints from The Force Awakens.

BB-8 Astromech Droid and First Order Kylo Ren are both large canvas giclee prints, each one is 35 1/2″ x 24 1/2″ wide, signed and hand-numbered by artist Mike Kungl. Another similarity in these prints is their exclusivity. There are only 50 pieces of each one available! So don’t wait on these – once they’re gone you won’t be able to get them at this price, and you’ll have to pay more on ebay.

I’ve Always Wanted To Fly One Of Those, by Damien Friesz

Of all the prints in this list, I’ve Always Wanted To Fly One Of Those is a little on the small side, measuring 24″ wide x 12″ tall.

Star Wars Episode I Monopoly is a “3D” board which has a board which is taller than most boards.

With the awesome way that the property cards fit on the board, it’s really very easy to see which properties are still available.

This is a “full” or classic version of Star Wars Monopoly. The game isn’t shortened, it’s the normal rules and there are 40 spaces on the board. If you know how to play Monopoly, then this is really easy to play.

Other than that, it’s a full Star Wars Monopoly board, with all 40 spaces and classic rules.

You may have noticed that there was a Star Wars Monopoly board for both Episode I and Episode II, but not for Episode III.

Well, at least not specifically. But the Saga Edition was released after The Revenge of the Sith came out, and it is kind of a “best of” for all of the films.

This is a really popular board because it has such a great collection of characters included with it.

This Star Wars Onesie is fashioned after BB-8 and includes a matching little hat!

Baby Fett

Baby Fett Star Wars Onesie
Baby Fett Star Wars Onesie

The Baby Fett onesie is a nice entry in because it features Boba Fett, which for many fans is the more popular character from Star Wars.

The thing about Boba Fett is that it seems that the more serious the fan, the more they tend to LOVE Boba Fett.

Maybe it’s the gravely voice, or the rocket backpack, or the fact that he’s cunning enough to track down Han Solo even while he was in the company of both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker. Whatever the reason, Boba Fett rules in the Star Wars galaxy, so if you’re looking for a baby shower present for a Star Wars fan then anything with Boba Fett is a sure hit.

Maximum size for the Baby Fetts is 18 months.

Boba Fett Character Onesie

One more Boba Fett entry in this list of Star Wars onesies- because he’s THAT popular.

What’s great about this onesie is that it looks like the Mandalorian armor that Boba Fett wears, complete with the different colored shoulders and the scuff marks on the chest armor.

I’m not going to overload on Boba Fett but both of these are such great Star Wars onesies that you can’t go wrong with either one (or both).

Just note that this onesie doesn’t come in as large of sizes – this one is available in sizes up to 6 months.

Come To The Dark Side... We Have Cookies

Pink Star Wars Onesie - Come to the Dark Side, We Have Cookies
Pink Star Wars Onesie - Come to the Dark Side, We Have Cookies

This phrase is not from the films, but it’s a funny and popular one that’s now part of the Star Wars lexicon. I think it came from one of the themes of the original trilogy – that of turning to the Dark Side of The Force. This time, though, we’ll sweeten the deal with some cookies!

Note: I’ve tried to stay away from shirts with iron-ons, because I hate it when they peel off, and you wouldn’t want any of the peeling off parts to end up in the little one’s mouth! This one IS an iron on, and some have complained that it peels too easily. So while the design is really cute, it might not have much versatility. It could be a “buy it for the May 4th party only” type of purchase.

Largest size on this Star Wars onesie is 12 months.

Star Wars Destiny

Star Wars Destiny Rey Art

Star Wars Destiny Rey ArtStar Wars Destiny is a collectible dice and card game that lets you control the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe. Step into your favorite galaxy and play as your favorite characters as you battle against teams of rivals in this awesome game!

Star Wars Destiny is made by Fantasy Flight Games, who’s library of Star Wars games include some hugely popular entries already, including Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures, Star Wars Armada, and Star Wars Imperial Assault. And if you’re thinking that with all of those games there isn’t room for (or a need for) another game – guess again!

Star Wars Destiny is different from the other games for a couple of big reasons.  First, the concept of the game is very different from the other games, with the ability to put together a team of characters from the Star Wars universe to see how they would work in a skirmish. Second, Destiny incorporates a mechanic of dice in combination with the cards for a great mix of customizing your deck and then augmenting it more with additional dice.

Card types are: characters, events, upgrades and vehicles, and battlefields. As you might expect, there are two clear sides in this battle – with the Sith and the Imperials on one side and the Jedi and Rebellion on the other. So while you won’t be putting together a team with both Kylo Ren and Rey, there is a little bit of crossover with some cards, as they can work for either side.

Getting started with Star Wars Destiny is easy – you choose your side and purchase your Starter Set – there is one for Kylo Ren and another for Rey.  After that, you can expand your options with Booster Packs.

The Booster Packs, as well as the individual cards from both Starter Sets are identified as all belonging to the “Awakenings” set and focus on the characters, events and settings of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. There is no announcements yet as to which set may be coming next.

Wave 1 for Star Wars Armada

Get on the List

Want to know when the newest ships are available?

Wave 1

Victory-class Star Destroyer Expansion Pack

The largest and most powerful of all the ships from the Core Set and first wave, the Victory-class Star Destroyer formed the core of the Imperial Navy at the outset of the Galactic Civil War, and it’s likely, soon, to form the core of many an Imperial fleet in Armada.

Wave 1

CR90 Corellian Corvette Expansion Pack

The miniature CR90 Corellian Corvette in this Expansion Pack is identical to that found in the game’s Core Set. Still, the expansion is well worth the consideration of anyone looking to field more than one corvette in battle.

Wave 1

Nebulon-B Frigate Expansion Pack

The second Rebel ship found in the Core Set is the Nebulon-B frigate, and the Nebulon-B Frigate Expansion Pack enhances its utility and versatility within your fleet by adding a pre-painted Nebulon-B miniature along with eight upgrade cards.

Assault Frigate Mark II Expansion Pack

The largest and most heavily armed of the Rebellion’s first wave of starships for Star Wars: Armada, the Assault Frigate Mark II is a light warship seven-hundred meters long that sports a crew just under five-thousand and features a considerable armament of fifteen turbolaser batteries, fifteen laser cannons, and twenty quad laser cannons.

Gladiator-class Star Destroyer Expansion Pack

Less powerful and less resilient than the Victory-class, the Gladiator-class Star Destroyer is also less expensive, costing either fifty-six fleet points for the Gladiator I or sixty-two fleet points for the Gladiator II. And while it’s not as powerful as the Victory-class, the Gladiator-class – in many ways – features a better balance of strengths.

Rebel Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack

Squadrons play an important role in the tactical fleet battles of Star Wars: Armada. Though they’re dwarfed by the capital ships they accompany, squadrons are not to be ignored; swarms of them can take down even the largest of ships. By adding eight squadrons of A-wings, B-wings, X-wings, and Y-wings to your fleet, the Rebel Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack helps to tip the scales in your favor.

Imperial Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack

The largest and most heavily armed of the Rebellion’s first wave of starships for Star Wars: Armada, the Assault Frigate Mark II is a light warship seven-hundred meters long that sports a crew just under five-thousand and features a considerable armament of fifteen turbolaser batteries, fifteen laser cannons, and twenty quad laser cannons.

Imperial Star Destroyer

At the height of the Galactic Civil War, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer was the commanding cornerstone of the Imperial Navy, boasting enough firepower to bring wayward systems to heel under Imperial rule.

MC30c Frigate

Star Wars Armada - MC30c Frigat Expansion swm12

One of the most powerful mid-level ships in the Galactic Civil War, the MC30c frigate presented a lethal combination of speed, high-powered armament, and advanced deflector shields.

Playable as one of two MC30c Frigate models, this expansion adds flexibility and power to your fleet.

Home One

Star Wars Armada - swm13 - Home One

Admiral Ackbar and his flagship star cruiser, Home One, arrive to Star Wars: Armada in the Home One Expansion Pack!

The Home One Expansion Pack gives the Rebel Alliance a ship that is capable of trading blow for blow with nearly any Imperial vessel and empowering a whole new set of tactics that you can employ in your battles for galactic freedom!

Rebels and Villains

Star Wars Armada - swm14 - Rebels and Villains

Han Solo, Boba Fett, and a handful of the galaxy’s most notorious rogues and villains race to the battlefield in the Rogues and Villains Expansion Pack for Star Wars: Armada!

You’ll find eight irregular squadrons, including some of the Star Wars galaxy’s most recognizable freighters, patrol craft, and bombers, each of which can be represented in your games by either a non-unique squadron card or flown by an ace. Like the squadrons from the Core Set and the first wave of expansions, these come unpainted, but are presented in colors that complement their fleets.

Imperial Raider

Star Wars Armada - swm15 - Imperial Raider

The Raider-class corvette is the Empire’s response to the need for a designated anti-fighter vessel.

The Imperial Raider Expansion Pack brings this ship’s six, accurate dual heavy laser cannons to Star Wars: Armada, where its utility against snubfighters and the disruptive effects of its ion cannon emplacements, along with the efficiency of its localized command, make it a powerful addition to any Imperial fleet.

Imperial Assault Carriers Expansion Pack

Star Wars Armada Wave 3 - Imperial Assault Carriers Expansion Pack

Treated like standard ships—with a couple of notable exceptions—flotillas come with a host of inexpensive, highly tactical abilities that allow you to coordinate your fleet more closely than ever!

The popular Gozanti-class cruiser arrives to Armada in Wave III in the Imperial Assault Carriers Expansion Pack. With just one die in their left, right, and forward battery armaments, and no dice to fire from their rear arcs, your flotilla of Gozanti-class cruisers is not going to intimidate your opponent into surrender, but only a fool would dismiss their impact.

Rebel Transports Expansion Pack

Star Wars Armada Wave 3 Rebel Transports Expansion Pack

One of the most powerful mid-level ships in the Galactic Civil War, the MC30c frigate presented a lethal combination of speed, high-powered armament, and advanced deflector shields.

Want to know when the newest ships are available?

Interdictor Expansion Pack

Star Wars Armada Wave 4 - Interdictor Expansion Pack

The Interdictor cruiser was designed as a major part of the Empire’s response to the elusive Rebel threat. Although its shape resembles that of a Star Destroyer, the Interdictor is smaller, and it sacrifices the Star Destroyer’s focus on shields and firepower in favor of advanced gravity-well projectors that are capable of wrenching enemy ships out from hyperspace. When an Interdictor is deployed along one of the galaxy’s hyperlanes, it can spell doom for any unsuspecting Rebel captain, cutting off the Alliance’s vital escape routes and strangling the galaxy’s last hope for freedom.

Liberty Expansion Pack

Star Wars Armada Wave 4 - Liberty Expansion Pack

The MC80 Liberty type Star Cruiser is the spearhead of the Rebel Alliance’s fleet, and its namesake ship is both renowned throughout the Alliance and infamous throughout the Empire. The Liberty boasts some of the heaviest firepower in the Rebel arsenal. Due to this impressive firepower, the ship’s powerful forward shielding, and its ability to dock multiple fighter squadrons, the Liberty is often among the first ships considered to lead Rebel strike forces into combat-likely raids within Imperial territory.

Rebel Fighter Squadrons II

Star Wars Armada Wave 5 - Rebel Fighters Squadron II Expansion Pack

The Rebel Fighter Squadrons II Expansion Pack leads the way with these new tactics, granting you access to two copies each of the  Z-95 Headhunter Squadrons and E-wing Squadrons, as well as two copies each of irregular squadrons featuring the Shadow Caster and the Ghost. Additionally, you will find eight squadron cards, two for each type of squadron, allowing you to field any of these versatile fighters in battle as a unique or non-unique squadron.

Phoenix Home

Star Wars Armada Wave 5 - Phoenix Home Expansion Pack

Under the command of Jun Sato, the Phoenix Home was the nerve center of the fledgling Rebel fleet. A large Pelta-class frigate, the Phoenix Home typically operated with a crew of 900. Although it was not the largest or more powerful of vessels, it was heavily armored and featured turbolasers and point-defense laser cannons. Moreover, what it lacked in size and firepower, it made up for with its ability to command the fleet and control the battle, playing a crucial role as a coordinator of capital ships and fighter squadrons alike.

Imperial Fighters Squadron II

Star Wars Armada Wave 5 - Imperial Fighters Squadron II Expansion Pack

The Imperial Fighter Squadrons II Expansion Pack introduces eight new squadrons, two each of four different types – the highly Strategic Lambda-class Shuttle, the punishing VT-49 Decimator and TIE Defender Squadron, and the elusive TIE Phantom Squadron. Each of these new types of squadrons comes, in turn, with two cards, one unique and one non-unique.

Imperial Light Cruiser

Star Wars Armada Wave 5 - Imperial Light Cruiser Expansion Pack

From Star Wars Rebels, the Imperial light cruiser is a communications and blockade ship used to help the Empire spread its domain throughout the galaxy. Quicker and more maneuverable than a Star Destroyer, the Arquitens-class light cruiser was frequently deployed to the Outer Rim to help strangle isolated rebel cells.

Of course, its speed is only one part of the threat it presents. The light cruiser is also a powerful vessel, armed with quad lasers, turbolasers, and concussion missiles. In numbers, it can menace even the largest enemy warships.
