It’s very impressive and looks imposing on the tabletop I’m sure. When you see it next to a TIE Advanced (see below) you’ll see what I mean. The Raider is designed for Cinematic and Epic level play. More about it…
“Kuat Drive Yards began manufacturing the Raider-class corvette in 6BBY as a dedicated anti-fighter vessel after it was successfully pitched by Lira Wessex, the designer of the Imperial-class Star Destroyer. She recognized that the Imperial Navy lacked a small, modern craft to reinforce the TIE fighter squadrons deployed by Star Destroyers, and she designed the Raider-class corvette as a durable, 150m vessel that featured multiple hardpoints and would excel at suppressing Rebel fighter attacks.”
As well as the Raider you also get a new TIE Advanced with some new cards allowing you to utilise it to suppress Rebel attacks with a bit more ease. I can see some awesome games coming to light when this and the big Rebel ships clash surrounded by a swarm of fighters.
Pretty sure Fantasy Flight Games have just won once again with this one.
What do you think of it?
