Governor Pryce revealed for Star Wars: Armada

Governor Pryce plans to make big and medium sized ships in Star Wars: Armada formidable again.

2015 World Champion Jonathan Reinig was overjoyed when he won the 2015 Star Wars: Armada World Championship but it was not the way he wanted to win.

Prior to Worlds, I had dreamed of marching a giant Imperial Star Destroyer across the table and watching waves of enemy ships break against its shields as its turbolaser batteries ended their feeble attempts to stop me. Sadly, however, the more I put the Imperial Star Destroyer on the table, the more I found my attempts to fly it to victory more frustrating than impressive.

When I won Worlds, I knew I wanted my card effect to prevent the Imperials from suffering these kinds of insults in the future. The Star Destroyer was a massively imposing force in the movies, and I wanted it to invoke the same awe and fear on the table.

With the aid of the design team, Jonathan helped create a card which supports the ships he always wanted to fly. Her ability allows the ship to which she is assigned to activate at the end of the Ship Phase. The activation round is based on the token placed on her card after fleet deployment. Should players properly position a Star Destroyer to activate last in the round it would be devastating to any ships caught in their firing arc.

Governor Pryce will be released as part of the Chimaera Expansion Pack along with Grand Admiral Thrawn, and a new Imperial Star Destroyer with an alternate paint scheme.
