Named for its distinctive silhouette, the Hammerhead corvette features a durable design that has kept the ship relevant for centuries. While the Hammerhead is officially classed as a transport, its potent engines, sturdy frame, and heavy armament also serve it well in combat. Often fielded in groups by the Rebellion, Hammerheads are agile and responsive enough to lend themselves to formation tactics and mutual support roles within a larger fleet.

You’ll be able to explore some of these formation tactics in Armada with even just one Hammerhead Corvettes Expansion Pack. Along with its two pairs of ship cards and a full complement of fourteen upgrade cards, the expansion introduces two pre-painted, small-base Hammerhead corvette miniatures.

Capable of acting as a mobile starfighter base over occupied worlds, the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier is an ideal garrison vessel. It can support operations even in the most primitive conditions, and it bristles with laser turrets that allow it to defend itself while its fighter craft are away on crucial missions.

The Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack brings the Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier to your tabletop as a pre-painted, medium-base starship with six hull, three dice in its forward battery armament, and a whopping squadron value of “4.”

With both of these expansion packs in Wave 6, there is an effort to bring the ships into a closer style of battle than in previous expansions.  Whether you’re unleashing TIE fighters from point blank range with the Imperial Light Carrier or you’re ramming your opponent with a head on collision with the Rebels Hammerhead Corvettes, the ships and tactics that Star Wars Armada Wave 6 brings to the game will definitely be felt!

Note: this isn’t a complete game experience. By themselves, these ships look nice but you won’t know what to do with them. You’ll need the Star Wars Armada Core Set to get started.
