The alien Shaltari are a race unlike any encountered by humankind. Though short in stature, they are wise beyond anything known. Their technology is so far advanced to be almost indistinguishable from magic, utilising teleportation, gravitic distortion, and even the ability to bypass death.
It is this last detail that is most curious to the United Colonies of Mankind. The Shaltari are able to pass their consciousness into a another body, grown specially for the purpose. They are essentially immortal, provided their warlike nature doesn’t kill them first. For the Shaltari a species of duality, where sometimes serene and intelligent beyond measure, they can turn into war hungry creatures, desperate to prove their martial prowess.
In void combat their fleets are equally hard to predict. While they have little need for primitive armour, they protect themselves through energy shields and incredible manoeuvrability. To fall into a Shaltari trap is common – and due to their weapons of immense power – deadly.
This box contains an entire Shaltari Battlefleet, with (almost) everything you’ll need to raise a fleet for your games of Dropfleet Commander. This set contains a mix of plastic and resin ships, which provide a solid core for your fleet and some more advanced ships to fill particular roles.
The plastic Cruisers and Frigates can be assembled in dozens of ways, each with a very specific place in the fleet. From the stranger Emerald Motherships, all the way down to the unique Voidgates – anchors of a vast teleportation network.
Each ship comes with a multi-part plastic base and flight stand to keep track of your damage, orbital layer, fire arcs, energy status and ship names.
Shaltari ships lack armour, but boast a tactical acumen that rewards the most cunning players.
