Spartan Games, at long last, has announced the new Xelocian Imperium releases for Firestorm Armada. You might remember that the previously-intended re-release was aborted due to player feedback, but the re-redesigned Xelocians look great!
Firstly, we have the Xelocian Patrol Fleet box, essentially a starter for anyone who wants to jump into the Xelocians as a standalone fleet or as part of a wider allied fleet. This box contains a Kindartu-class battleship, Tindaku-class cruisers, and Shaniri-class frigates, along with all the bits and pieces you need to start Xelocians.
Next up, the Xelocian Cruiser Group, with Tindaku-class cruisers, lets you add or bulk up on imperium cruisers in your fleet.
The Xelocian Dreadnought Group is next, bringing the huge Hulaka-class dreadnought to the table and what looks like serious hurt to whatever the CO thinks is “enemy!”
Finally, the Shaniri-class frigates and the brand-new Larshan-class escorts make up the Xelocian Frigate and Escort Group. I particularly like the design of those escorts!
All of this Xelocian goodness will begin to ship on April 27th.
