Imperial-class Star Destroyers, MC80 Mon Calamari cruisers, Raider-class corvettes, Slave I, the Millennium Falcon, and more! They're all coming in Armada Wave II, and the shots these ships will fire are bound to shape the course of the Galactic Civil War.
The second wave of expansions for Star Wars: Armada has been announced by Fantasy Flight Games, and features five new expansion packs:
  • Imperial-class Star Destroyer Expansion Pack
  • MC30c Frigate Expansion Pack
  • Home One Expansion Pack
  • Rogues and Villains Expansion Pack
  • Imperial Raider Expansion Pack
armada huge ship Imperial-Class Star Destroyer In the Galactic Civil War, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer was the cornerstone flagship of the Imperial Navy.  This battleship expansion pack will feature one pre-painted miniature, two ship cards, three command dials, eighteen upgrades, and all requisite tokens.  Additionally this pack includes a new type of defense token: Contain.  The Contain defense token allows the Imperial-class Star Destroyer to cancel the standard critical effect of a shot that passes through your shields to your hull, effectively minimizing what would be a significant blow. MC30c Frigate A valuable attack vessel for the Rebellion, the MC30c Frigate is of Mon Calamari design and is intended as a quick-strike attack ship.  As nimble as it is powerful, this ship can attack with five attack dice from both its left and right hull zones.  The tradeoff, however, is in its lack of hull plating, making this fast ship vulnerable to attack once it gets within range of the enemy.  This ship can be fielded as either the MC30c Scout Frigate or MC30c Torpedo Frigate.  This expansion includes one pre-painted MC30c frigate miniature, two command dials and ten upgrade cards. Home One: MC80 Star Cruiser Admiral Ackbar's legendary battle cruiser enters the fray sporting attacks with six dice from the left and right hull zones.  What's more, when Ackbar himself is at the helm, he can add yet another two attack dice to the roll.  This makes for an unshakeable answer to any Imperial attack.  This mighty expansion pack features one large-size, pre-painted miniature MC80 star cruiser, two ship cards, three command dials, and fourteen upgrades. Imperial Raider Originally designed as a unique anti-starfighter cruiser for the Star Wars: X-Wing miniatures game, this ship sports enough firepower to easily dispatch squadrons of Rebel star fighters and, when necessary, to unload concentrated volleys into the broadside of a battle cruiser.  The ship includes a pre-painted miniature, command dial, speed dial, and all the tokens you need to enter the fray.  Among its eight upgrade cards, you'll find Ordnance Experts, a new commander, Quad Laser Turrets, and two unique titles. rogues villians armada Rogues and Villains The famous (and infamous) heroes and villains of the galaxy enter the battle in this expansion pack, including Han Solo, Boba Fett, and a handful of the galaxy's most notorious rogues and villains.  Each miniature in this pack features single ships that represent well-known freighters, patrol craft, and bombers in the Star Wars universe that can be flown by non-unique pilots or by aces.  New keywords such as Rogue (allows a ship to move and attack when activated), Grit, and Intel make these rogue starships unique and fun to add to the game table. These five expansion packs of Armada Wave II are scheduled to arrive in the third quarter of 2015.  For more information, visit the FFG website here.
