Clone Wars Commander Predictions

Recommended Posts

@Crabbok made a good video on the topic and I thought why not share it here. Do you agree or disagree with some of his choices? I think that Yoda who is known for his ability to see the future might allow you to change dials if you need to or maybe even reduce the amount of dials that a ship has in exchange for a high points cost. Also no matter what ship General Grievous is bundled with I hope he is allowed to abandon ship in his starfighter Souless One.

I've seen all of the major arcs of Clone Wars (and seen the movies, of course), and I have to admit that I still don't have a good grasp on who the key players are for this era, beyond the obvious: Grievous and Kenobi. I know of Tarantula Man (Admiral Trench, I believe) and the Droid commander who popped up in Rebels, and the younger Yularen, but that's where my knowledge kind of runs out.

Just give me Nute Gunray on the Trade Federation battleship and I'll be happy.

For CIS:

Count Dooku

General Grievous

Admiral Trench

Nute Gunray

Lot Durd (I might have name wrong, but he faced off against Anakin as commander of a fleet. Anakin rammed his ship in and gave command of the last Ventala to Ahsoka)

Wat Tambor (metal man)

Kalani (Super tactical droid)

Kraken (Super tactical droid)

Aut-0 (super tactical droid)

 

For GAR: 
Skywalker

Kenobi 

Yularen
The Jedi with the metals eyes who is a sort of mentor to Ahsoka

Any other Jedi

Probably a few clones I forgot about

Probably these guys for the CIS

(also probably some droids)

For the Republic there's so many options. Each Jedi could be a commander. Multiple clones, even a few senators?

They really have a lot of content to feed from in terms of characters. Capital ships may be more tricky.

Crabbok did a great job covering all the expected Clone Wars Commanders.

My predictions are that Anakin Skywalker will be the Commander in the Venator cruiser expansion; General Grievous needs to be released sooner than the Subjugator/Malevolence ship expansion (which will be Wave 3 at the earliest), so he should be in the Munificent star frigate expansion, which will presumably be released in Wave 1. I think Admiral Trench will be in the Providence destroyer/carrier expansion in Wave 1 or 2. Count Dooku can probably wait until the Subjugator/Malevolence expansion. 

Galactic Republic:

  1. Republic Fleet Expansion: Obi-wan Kenobi
  2. Charger C70 Corvette: Wuulf Yularen / Aayla Secura
  3. Venator Cruiser: Anakin Skywalker
  4. Acclamator Assault Ship: Yoda / Mace Windu
  5. Arquitens Escort Frigate: Adi Gallia / Captain Tarkin
  6. Pelta Frigate: Luminara Unduli

Separatist Alliance:

  1. Separatist Fleet Expansion: Kraken
  2. Munificent Star Frigate: General Grievous
  3. Providence Destroyer/Carrier: Admiral Trench
  4. Lucrehulk Battleship: Nute Gunray
  5. Recusant Light Destroyer: Mar Tuuk / Kalani
  6. Hardcell Transport: Wat Tambor
  7. Subjugator (Malevolence) Heavy Cruiser: Count Dooku

I think the Clone Wars will run out of canon ships before it runs out of canon characters as Commanders.

I believe you mean Mar Tuuk, the captain of the Lucrehulk battleship blockading Ryloth in the "Storm Over Ryloth" episode of TCW.

Lok Durd was the fat Neimodian general (voice by the Great George Takei) who tested the Desolator tank on Maridun in TCW episode "Defenders of Peace".

I believe you mean Plo Koon. I believe he's more likely to be an Ace pilot of a squadron, probably the Delta-7B, than a Commander because he was depicted in at least 6 episodes as an ace pilot, whereas I only recall him depicted commanding a Venator cruiser once, before it was destroyed by the Malevolence. (Twice if you count the rescue mission he led to rescue Anakin and Mace Windu from their crashed Venator.)

They're waiting to release the death star, against which he'll be very useful.

He could have multiple versions. A boarding team type that does a bit of sabotage somehow and an officer card.

No supreme chancellor Palpatine for the republic?

Perhaps Chancellor Palpatine could be a Commander in a later expansion, like Wave 5+; but I think we'll see Palpatine as an Officer sooner than that. Or possibly as a "VIP" token for a "Hostage Rescue" Objective Card.

Same with Darth Sidious: Probably a Separatist Officer first and possibly later as a Commander. If the Subjugator is a huge ship, it could get multiple Commanders, like the SSD, and Darth Sidious could be one, along with Dooku. The pairing of two Sith Lords in the same huge ship expansion would be wonderfully thematic!

No.  All that dude did was get captured. Now that Darth Sidious character... now there was a guy that played the long game.  I’d love to see him as a Separatist Commander.

Fingers crossed! I have a Mandator IV model (that I use as an SSD proxy) and Super Star Destroyer already, so the Subjugator would be the final feather in my cap.
