Star Wars: Armada has been quiet lately, but that doesn't mean that the folks over at Fantasy Flight haven't been working on it. They're coming out with Separatist and Republic fleets for the game, and we get a look at the Republic's starter in this preview.
From the article:
War has shaken the peaceful Galactic Republic to its core. Pushed to the brink by the seemingly endless fleets of the Separatist Alliance, the Senate now relies on the Jedi Knights and legions of clone troopers to turn the tide. Together, these two groups man their own warships in the desperate fight for the fate of the galaxy.
More than just adding new ships, this set introduces an entirely new faction to the game, giving you your first opportunity to assemble fleets of iconic Republic warships and fighter squadrons while experiencing everything the faction has to offer. To begin building your first fleets, you’ll find an Acclamator-class Assault Ship miniature and two Consular-class Cruiser miniatures as well as four squadrons of V-19 Torrent starfighters.
In addition to the miniatures, this Fleet Starter invites you to fine-tune your fleets down to the smallest detail. All three of the capital ships can be fielded in two variants depicted on six ship cards, giving you the freedom to choose the ship type that best fits your strategy. Meanwhile, two squadron cards let you choose between a generic group of V-19s and one led by the elite clone pilot “Axe”. Finally, Republic ships are remarkably customizable and you can use the 20 upgrade cards found here to outfit your ships with additional officers, weapons, and more.
