Star Wars Armada Preview: Rogues and Villains Expansion Pack
October 8, 2015 - 7:57am
Fantasy Flight is offering a preview of the upcoming Rogues and Villains pack for their massive tabletop fleet combat game Star Wars Armada. This pack will give you several new squadrons (4 Imperial and 4 Rebel) to add to your fleet, including various Rogue squadrons (such as Boba Fett, or Han Solo on the Millenium Falcon) which have the ability to both move and attack during the squadron phase, rather than being limited to only doing one or the other. Han Solo will also carry a new keyword called 'Grit' which allows him to fly away from an engagement as long as he isn't engaged with more than 1 enemy squadron, giving him (in combination with the 'Rogue' keyword) an incredible independence and tactical flexibility. The pack also introduces several other villains to the game including: IG-88 - who carries the 'Rogue' keyword, as well as other special abilities like being able to ignore any 'Escort' or 'Counter' keywords on enemy squadrons; the bounty hunter Bossk - who has both 'Rogue' and 'Grit' and whose attacks will become more accurate as his ship takes damage; and Dengar - who can use his Intel ability to beef up the strength of other squadrons around him. Each new squadron in this pack can be played as Unique or Non-unique squadrons. Be sure to check out the full preview including pictures here.
