Announcing Two New Galactic Republic Expansions for Star Wars™: Armada
The first battles of the Clone Wars are rippling across the galaxy as mighty warships from the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance meet in epic battles that will shape the conflict to come. Desperate to mount a defense and prevent more star systems from slipping into Separatist hands, the Republic deploys new ships to turn the tide.
You’ve built your first fleets with the Galactic Republic Fleet Starter and Republic Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack. Now, two more iconic Clone Wars-era ships are on their way to reinforce the Republic:
These expansions bring two of the Republic’s most recognizable capital ships to your fleets along with a host of iconic characters, powerful new weapons, and other upgrades to customize your fleets to your exact specifications.
Read on more information on what these expansions bring to your Republic fleets!
Venator-class Star Destroyer Expansion Pack
In the vicious battles of the Clone Wars, Jedi Generals such as the wise Plo Koon command their forces from the bridge of mighty Venator-class Star Destroyers, earning these vessels the moniker of “Jedi Cruisers.” Kuat Drive Yards designed the ship to be flexible; capable of fighting toe-to-toe with other warships, launching wings of starfighters, and breaking blockade sieges with devastating bombardments. As a command craft and warship, the Venator-class Star Destroyer has no equal in the Republic Navy.
This Expansion Pack contains everything you need to field this commanding ship in your Republic fleets, beginning with a beautifully detailed, pre-painted Venator-class Star Destroyer miniature. A beacon of the Republic, the Venator-class Star Destroyer often leads fleets into battle and this expansion gives you two different options for adding it to your fleet on two ship cards.
As powerful as it is, the Venator-class Star Destroyer is also commanded and crewed by some of the best the Republic has to offer, including two new commanders that set the tone for your entire fleet. A Jedi Master like Luminara Unduli knows that Republic ships will need to have their defenses up if they are to survive the Separatist onslaught and helps ships in her fleets ready their defense tokens. Apprentices often carry on the wisdom of their masters, of course, and this is certainly the case with , who uses Unduli’s teachings on defense to allow a ship to redirect an attack’s damage to a completely different hull zone.
In addition to these characters, you’ll also find a wide array of other ways to customize your Venator-class Star Destroyer among the 16 upgrade cards found in this expansion, including new weaponry and other offensive and defensive enhancements. We’ll take a look at everything in this expansion in a future preview!
Pelta-class Frigate Expansion Pack
A flexible vessel capable of serving as a combat transport or a medical evacuation craft, the Pelta-class frigate is a mainstay of the Republic Navy. These ships fulfill vital strategic and logistical roles, keeping the Grand Army of the Republic in fighting shape and supporting key operations across the galaxy.
You’ll find everything you need to add a Pelta-class frigate to your Republic fleets within this expansion, including a beautifully detailed, pre-painted miniature and two ship cards that invite you to fly it as a transport or as a medical frigate. Although it may be small, the Pelta-class frigate can still carry some of the Republic’s best tactical minds, including Admiral Tarkin himself.
Including Tarkin, this expansion adds seven upgrade cards to your Republic arsenal, inviting you to upgrade your ship with two new commanders, additional crew, a new fleet command, unique titles for your Pelta-class frigate. We’ll take a look at all these upgrades in a future preview!
For the Republic!

Heart of the Swarm
Announcing Two New Separatist Alliance Expansions for Star Wars™: Armada
Separatist fleets sweep across the galaxy like an unstoppable machine, brushing aside any resistance. The only thing standing between them and total galactic domination is the Republic Navy. To defeat this foe, Separatist leaders add to their arsenal with new technological monstrosities that will ensure victory in the Clone Wars.
Now that Star Wars: Armada has fully entered this new era of the Star Wars™ saga with the Separatist Alliance Fleet Starter and the Separatist Fighter Squadrons Expansion Pack, even more ships are on their way to round out your Separatist fleets:
Not only do these expansions add the power of these two large ships to your fleets, they also put the skills of some of the Separatist Alliance’s most nefarious officers at your disposal in the form of upgrade cards. Hyper intelligent droids join members of the Corporate Alliance, Commerce Guild, and more aboard your ships, unlocking even more strategic possibilities. Meanwhile, the Separatist war machine grows even larger with new weapons, fleet commands, titles, and a host of other upgrades.
Read on for a glimpse at what these expansions add to your Separatist fleets!
Invisible Hand Expansion Pack
Flagship of the cruel General Grievous, the Invisible Hand has its own dark reputation. Its presence at the head of the Separatist navy heralds shameless avarice and calculated destruction on a galaxy-shocking scale. But it is not alone. Each Providence-class Dreadnought bristles with heavy armament, shrugs off enemy ordnance with powerful shielding, and leads whole fleets of lesser ships into battle. Carrying countless fighters and battle droids to the front, these dreadnoughts are the soulless heart of the Separatist war machine.
Whether you’re commanding the infamous Invisible Hand itself or another Providence-class Dreadnought, this Expansion Pack gives you everything you need to add one of these daunting warships to your fleet. A beautifully detailed, pre-painted miniature makes an imposing presence on the field while two ship cards allow you to field it as either a Providence-class Dreadnought or Carrier.
As one of the most prominent ships in the Separatist Navy, the Providence-class Dreadnought often leads Separatist fleets into battle and 14 upgrade cards give you the freedom to outfit it for battle. Among them is the Supreme Commander of the Separatist Droid Army himself, General Grievous, who rallies those under his command after a friendly ship or unique squadron is destroyed, allowing them to ready a defense token or recover and exhaust a discarded defense token.
We’ll take a look at everything in the Invisible Hand Expansion Pack–including all the upgrade cards–in a future preview!
Recusant-class Destroyer Expansion Pack
Produced in vast numbers by the Commerce Guild, the Recusant-class Destroyer reinforces the daunting ranks of the Separatist fleet. The Recusant is a formidable warship, capable of independent command and armed with an array of turbolasers for long-range combat and lighter laser cannons to cover against fighter attack. Its speed and maneuverability threaten the weak points of an enemy battle line, but when gathered together, they can overwhelm more powerful Republic ships with their sheer numbers.
Within this expansion, you’ll find everything you need to add a Recusant-class Destroyer to your fleets, beginning with a beautifully detailed, pre-painted miniature. Two ship cards bring this miniature to life on your tabletop as either a Light Destroyer or a Support Destroyer, each featuring their own unique armament and upgrade bar.
Beyond the ship cards themselves, 14 upgrade cards invite you to make your Recusant-class Destroyer even more specialized with additional weapons, titles, and officers such as the Commerce Guild’s Shu Mai, who gives her ship the chance to reroll up to three dice while attacking a ship during two non-consecutive rounds.
We’ll take a look at all the possibilities of the Recusant-class Destroyer Expansion Pack in a future preview!
No matter what sectors of space the Clone Wars spread to next, these expansions will serve as the core of new Separatist tactics. Be sure to check this space in the future for more information about these potent new capital ships!
