Dive in with these getting started sets that have everything you need to play, including seven ships!

Before jumping into the new boxes, an update from Mantic HQ. England is back in lockdown, but the team at Mantic are hard at work to make sure all of the Armada orders arrive on time. They’ve put new workflows and machines in place that have increased output by over 600% for the last 2 weeks. Ronnie talks more about the precautions they’re taking in this blog post.

On to the new starters! These will get you onto the seas around Pannithor in short order. Each contains the rulebook (with rules based on Warlord’s Black Seas plus missions, lore, and more), tokens, dice, and seven fantastic ships. These are expected to ship at the end of the month.
