The Star Wars sga covers quite a bit of time, with many conflicts. The first we see on film is the war between the Separatists and the Republic. These factions will be making their way to the X-Wing Miniatures Game from Fantasy Flight, with the Separatists getting a starter set soon. In this preview, we get a look at a few of the upgrades they'll have available for their robotic ships.
From the website:
Long before the Galactic Empire seized control of the galaxy, the Separatist Alliance also sought to rule through tyranny and fear. Despite their great desire for power, however, the leaders of this faction rarely saw action in the battles that determined the fate of the galaxy. Instead, they fought by proxy, deploying massive groups of battle droids and droid starfighters to fight in their stead.
As the Separatist Alliance joins the intense space battles of X-Wing™ with the Servants of Strife Squadron Pack, it should be no surprise that the faction is defined by this same attitude. The Separatist’s organic pilots view their droid starfighters as a means to accomplishing their own ends, often content to support their swarms of Vulture-class droid fighters from the safety of their own Belbullab-22 starfighters.
In addition to these utterly unique starfighters, this Squadron Pack gives you plenty of ways to choose your approach to battle. A full suite of 48 upgrade cards invites you to outfit your Separatist ships with new tools that enhance their abilities and make them even more lethal. While many of these upgrade cards are reprints of common neutral upgrades, Servants of Strife also features brand-new upgrade cards exclusive to the Separatist Alliance that further define it as a faction focused on using droid starfighters like never before.
Join us today as we take a closer look at these upgrade cards and what they bring to the Separatists!
