Star Wars: Armada continues to populate the Clone Wars with incredible Separatist and Republic vessels with this, the Separatist Alliance Fleet Starter from Fantasy Flight Games. Not buying it would be a Grievous mistake…

“Your ship is waiting.”
–General Grievous, Star Wars™: Revenge of the Sith

The leaders of the Separatist Alliance largely fight a proxy war, letting droids stand in for organic soldiers and starships. While these networked droids often work seamlessly with one another to react to the shifting tides of battle, they often are most effective when receiving direction from a centralized source.

When ships like the Munificent-class Frigate are unable to perform this role, the Separatists often turn to the Hardcell Transport. Despite being lightly armed, the ship more than makes up for this with its versatility in combat operations. Soon, the Hardcell will form a cornerstone of your new Separatist fleets with the Separatist Alliance Fleet Starter for Star Wars™: Armada!

This Fleet Starter introduces the Separatist Alliance into the game with a Munificent-class Frigate miniature, two Hardcell Transport miniatures, and four Vulture-class Droid Fighter Squadrons as well as all the components you need to play the game. Far from playing a singular role in your fleets, both of the capital ships can be deployed in two variants that make them even more specialized while 20 upgrade cards invite you to modify your ships to fit your strategy.
