If I remember correctly Biggs' first commission was aboard one of these. An interesting addition that I look forward to seeing, though it would seem to make the Ton Falk obsolete (depending on the pop cost of course).
Yes, this is the only picture of Delvardus.
Class-II Frigate. 400M long death triangle, carries a full Imperial Wing (72) of fighters.
Yes Delvardus was the only Warlord who managed to sneak in a weapon(disguised as vanity medals, very clever) and came within an inch of actually succeeding in taking her with him(which let's face it would have done the Empire a WORLD of good as it would have left Pellaeon defacto in charge BEFORE losing the Night Hammer...He also managed to keep an entire brand new prototype SSD secret, give it stealth plating AND manage to cut the crew size to less than half the original number that is an impressive resume when you think about how hard pressed he was early on and being surrounded with constant war with the other 12 Deep Core Warlords.
The man must have been a tactical moron though. I mean, he lost a Praetor to a Nebulon B and 2 squads of Y-wings. The only reason he had any power was the Tarkin name behind him. When that evaporated because of his idiotic tactics so did his kingdom.

why do u hate america? if it were not for us u guys would be lost. i mean we invented the tv, we invented the internet, cars and we even went to the planet moon. we won all the wars and we always help the little countries who cant fight and we give food to poor people.
Is it actually stated to have been such a small Rebel force? I always assumed it was a good sized fleet of Neb's and Y-Wings.
Well the Wook has changed its stance on that, as it now says it was a fleet of Neb B's and Y-wings. That sounds a lot more reasonable IMO (don't have the source they got that from so I don't know for sure though). Regardless his push to expand rather than reinforce his territory lost him his support from the Tarkin family as well as alienated good soldiers like Shea Hublin.
Yes, it was a strategic blunder. Unlike Zsinj and Kaine who consolidated first Delvardus tried to expand quickly to try and capitalize on the chaos of post Endor. This lead directly to him becoming a priority target of the NR while he was still embroiled in a war with his neighboring Warlord in lambda sector.in addition to the now multisided war he found himself in, his expansionist policy cost him the support of the Eriadu Ruling families-that stopped funding him and recalled forces loyal to them away from his campaign badly weakening him. Shea hublin's and Maximillion Veers departures also badly hurt the Warlord's forces by depriving him of experienced commanders at critical stages of the campaign. The loss of his flagship as well as his failed offensive crippled his reputation and lost him yet further support. hublin came back only to die almost immediately further making it appear Delvardus was a lost cause and prompting yet more forces to abandon him.At this point Delvardus had only two options, pull out and start again or double down and go for broke. He gambled and was soundly crushed unsurprising really as Sullust was heavily fortified he had no reinforcements, morale was at an all time low and he had more territory than he could guard with his dwindling forces thanks to Eriadu dumping him. Sien Sovv was also shown to be a decent commander throughout his life. Nantz was immediately able to strike deep into the vast territory of Eriadu which for all intents and purposes at that point allowed him in caving in Delvardus's already shaky supply and repair areas.
What is astounding is that he survived and managed to extract a sizable amount of his forces to the Deep Core where he more or less flourished compared to many of the other Warlords as he was able to complete in absolute secrecy the Night Hammer that he could have dropped on either Harrsk or Teradoc's heads as each of the big three in the Deep Core knew the location of the other's main fortress. It's actually possible Delvardus given another month could have killed either Harrsk or Teradoc and absorbed their holdings and forces making him the dominant Warlord in the Deep Core.
Didn't we have an earlier picture of Delvardus?
Why do you not add V-wing for Eriadu?
Eriadu looks interesting but Maldrood is better. Why do you not add V-wing for Eriadu? Just one unique fighter is too little.
Since Eriadu is getting the Imperial Escort Carrier and Storm Commandos, will they be removed from the Pentastar Alignment's unit roster? If so, what could we expect as a replacement?
Xizer had commissioned some portraits for 2.0 (or 2.1) of characters with no images, including the Warlords. Since then, canon images have come out, so we're using those and shifting the commissions to other suitable places (the Teradoc one become Kosh instead of Treutan, although I think I prefer the Delvardus one for Kosh)
They are being removed. They will have a replacement for an elite infantry unit, not for the IEC. We'll discuss the Pentastar changes all at once later.
