Fantasy Flight Games Sneak Peeks First ‘Star Wars: Armada’ Expansions

Rebel Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack

Even in the largest of battles, a single pilot can sometimes prove the difference between victory and defeat. Some of the most pivotal battles of the Galactic Civil War have been decided by the Rebellion’s courageous starfighter pilots.

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, including unique squadrons led by such aces as Wedge Antilles and Tycho Celchu, the Rebel Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack helps to tip the scales in your favor.

Imperial Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack

In battle, the Empire deployed swarms of TIEs to neutralize enemy squadrons and safeguard its larger Star Destroyers and their superior firepower. These easily recognizable starfighters were designed for speed and maneuverability, rather than durability, and the aces who flew them through many battles quickly earned intimidating reputations for their combat skill and fanatical loyalty.

The Imperial Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack introduces an array of eight starfighter squadrons, evenly split between four different types of fighters. By adding these TIE advanced, TIE interceptor, TIE bomber, and TIE fighter squadrons to your fleet, you’ll be able to swarm your foes, protect your capital ships, and send the Rebellion’s hopes down in flames.

A Fleet to Fit Your Tactics

Build your fleet, refine your tactics, and expand your Armada battles beyond the Core Set and its myriad possibilities with this first wave of expansion packs. All seven are scheduled to release in early 2015, at the same time as the Armada Core Set. Until then, keep your eyes open for more Armada previews, including previews of its fleet-building rules and the different tactical options presented by the Core Set and Wave One upgrades!
