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).

Correct, the Rand Ecliptic.  One of the better looking micro-death-triangles, IMO.  I prefer them to the Gladiator, Vindicator, or Enforcer personally.

Yes, this is the only picture of Delvardus.
Didn't we have an earlier picture of Delvardus?

Class-II Frigate.  400M long death triangle, carries a full Imperial Wing (72) of fighters. 
Thank you.
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.
Shame that he lost his territory so early on, he could have been the greatest warlord. But he lost to a rookie sullustan officer, so...

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.

Unless those Y-Wings enabled god mode, that is bullcrap.

I mean, yeah, a small group of X-Wings and Y-Wings managed to penetrate the Death Star's defenses and reach the trench but at least we saw most of that group get killed off before they won thanks to interference from Han & Chewie.

I don't think that's a TACTICAL problem, that's a PLOT BUNNY issue.  Noone is immume to plot bunnies ruining what was otherwise a good book.

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.

sucks to be him. consolidate, fortify, build up, then attack, but don't chew off ore than you can chew when you do. this very issue caused the empire and a lot of warlords to lose a lot of territory. if the hadn't, hey, maybe the new republic would have lost.

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.

now that proves strategic thinking in a crisis. if he could do that, he was a better leader and strategist than most. unless i'm reading this wrong(which I probably am)
again, this is one of my favorite factions now. can't wait to see the hero list
do you know what really makes me mad? that the NR didn't make as many different SSDs as the empire. they would have won much faster had they done so. it's just not fair. but, if their were more NR SSDs, they would be absolute SUPER-CARRIERS.

but, i'm a member of the PA at heart, and my wish here is to join the ranks of grand admirals... sorry, the elite imperial alignment

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)

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?

I thought that was interesting as well, especially considering Hublin did fly this in defense of Eriadu of I recall correctly. Maybe they'll only be in as his hero squad?

V-Wing wouldn't be unique to them, hence not being listed, and piling on more fighters isn't a goal when the Imperial factions are all littered with redundant fighters as it is.

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?

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.

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)

To be fair the commissioned Portraits are done on the exact descriptions of the Warlord's appearances from Darksaber. Teradoc is described as morbidly obese having to exert himself just to walk in low gravity on Tsoss Beacon. With this in mind I based his art off of the Kingpin from Spider man animated series and Guru from DBZ. The canon portrait has him with just a basic paunch, Delvardus is described as being skeletal, with brown hair with shocks of white eyebrows and temples, gold shoulder boards, the canon portrait has him with all grey hair and standard officer uniform with medals, Harrsk is also different from his description in Darksaber where he is described as very short two face like in appearance with very neat black hair whereas in the canon pic he has grey hair and appears of average height.
Kosh is described as a poor physical specimen same as his brother Treuten(whether he lost weight as he flourished in the Deep Core we don't know)
For anyone who wants a gander at the old portraits I am including the links below.

Must say the one ground unit I was hoping to see for one of the Warlord factions (in particular Eriadu) was the AT-MP, functioning as an artillery unit along the lines of the Hailfire. Pretty interesting that they're getting (potentially) 3 air units (IDT, U-LAV, Imperial Escort Fighter). That will probably be a pain to fight against, but quite fun.
