  1. In the 6-player, 2-round, 400-point tournament I just ran at my FLGS. There were two imperial fleets with SSD. The SSDs won 3 of the 4 games they were in, but the one loss was a 10-1 victory for the opponent since the SSD was outright destroyed thus tabling the Imperial player.
  2. The Objective in the game was Advanced Gunnery. The Rebel Player was the first player. The Imperial had DCO on the SSD, but the rebel player managed to kill it anyway. The Rebel player was a much more experienced player than the Imperial.
  3. This is the fleet that won the 6-player tournament I officiated at our FLGS (Game HQ in Oklahoma City) today. MC80 Assault Cruiser Admiral Raddus Title - Defiance Electronic Countermeasures Reinforced Blast Doors Strategic Advisor Medical Team XI7 Turbolasers MC80 Star Cruiser Title - Mon Karren Overload Pulse Raymus Antilles Hammerhead Torpedo Corvette External Racks GR-75 Medium Transports Title - Bright Hope Bomber Command Center Boosted Comms Squadrons Y-Wing Squadrons (x3) Green Squadron A-Wing Squadron Objectives - Advanced Gunnery, Planetary Ion Cannon, Solar Corona Total Points: 400 This fleet tabled a Star Dreadnought Assault Prototype build in round two of the tournament.
  4. I got a Flambeau rifle case at Walmart for $11. I have my SSD and an ISD in the case with bases, cards, etc.
  5. Picked up mine from my FLGS today on my way home from work.
  6. During the live feed from Gencon yesterday they specifically stated that these are both large ships.
  7. When we played the pit eliminated man as a suspect. The Dwarf had injuries, bruising that he claimed he got from a wolf, we figured that a wolf would have scratched or bitten rather than bruise. The Hobbit had no injuries so that made it clear to us that the Dwarf had to be the spy. When we accused the Dwarf the orcs and thugs showed up to try and burn down the inn and everyone fled, it specifically mentioned that the hobbit left. We put out the fires and defeated the foes and won the scenario. However, we are still uncertain if the Dwarf was the spy and fled when the enemy attacked, or if the Hobbit was the spy.
  8. Éowyn, or if she would be too young in this timeline some other shieldmaiden of the Rohirrim. For that matter any male or female Rohirrim could be interesting. Arwen could work if you used something more similar to her movie persona as opposed to the straight book version. Boromir, or if he would be too young some other similar captain of Gondor. Glorfindel, though he might be a bit powerful to be a player-controlled character. A Woodmen or Beorning hero of some sort.
  9. I have ordered the one from Battle Foam. Once it arrives I will see if it accommodates sleeved cards.
  10. Battle Foam is having their yearly sale right now and make a foam insert for JiME. On sale it is about $22. https://us.battlefoam.com/lord-of-the-rings/
  11. Spiders is something of a staple for Middle-Earth. Something akin to the Watcher in the Water that lurked in the swollen waters of the Sirannon beneath the western walls of Moria, might be nice to see as well.
  12. They are wights so they are corporal creatures, at least when they are attacking or interacting. I guess I will paint mine up as skeletal undead wearing dark colored rags.
  13. That is what happened to us in our three-player game. We understood how the threat value rises, so we did everything we could to mitigate the threat value. But we could not manage to pass the needed checks to get the tracks found in time. The threat value maxed out at the same time two different characters failed their Last Stand challenges (fourth challenge for Legolas, and second challenge for Aragorn).
  14. We have only gotten to play a single game so far. Unfortunately we were operating in far from ideal conditions. There were a lot of distractions so a single scenario with three people ended up taking about four hours (about four times as long as it should have). We probably would have been better off waiting until we could play an uninterrupted game. Still for all the handicaps we had to content with I see great promise in the game. I will hopefully be able to play a solo game later this week, but right now I am painting the miniatures.
  15. This mini has been "in development" for six months now. I blame the slow progress on rebel saboteurs and meddling.
  16. This same player using this same fleet, just won the 2018 Game HQ store championship today.
  17. The 2018 Store Championship for Game HQ Inc. in south Oklahoma City will be held this Saturday, August 11th, starting at 10:00 AM. If you are in the area and an Armada player we have a very friendly group and would love for you to join us.
  18. Norsehound may be right. I remember when the epic ships came out for X-Wing. Everyone was pretty thrilled at the time, but they do not get used very much any more (at least around here they don't).
  19. Buy one of these 6-foot diameter soccer balls and do some painting.
  20. My two cents This is still in development so anything we see is probably still subject to change. I imagine that developers at FFG are watching this thread to see what sort of things they need to play test and tweak. As big as this ship is perhaps it can only be used while playing a lengthwise setup (see Corellian Conflict). Even then on a 3'x6' playing area it will be like trying to fight with your battleship while transiting the Panama Canal. Of course I guess it could also use the set up for a Final Confrontation (again from CC) which would give you a 3'x9' play area. Perhaps it will be that only the front half of the ship has to be set up in the deployment zone and the rest of the ship will creep on to the playing area over the course of a couple of turns. If you started this thing fully in the normal deployment zone then you will have to be careful your nose doesn't exit off the other side by the end of turn 6. At 220-points for the most no-frills version it will still be hard to not burn through all 400-points just by adding the upgrades you are bound to want. Perhaps there will be special rules that up the base point value for games that feature a huge ship.
  21. August 11th, Game HQ Inc. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
  22. It is quick and easy to run. However there is a reason that there was a 2nd Edition and a 2nd Edition Revised. There were things easily broken once characters became very experienced, the latter editions did a lot to remedy those situations. Still for a one-shot or a short campaign the old 1st edition rules should work fine.
  23. I have PDF copies of all the d6 stuff. The hard copies I had were worn out long ago. It is nice to have these to put on my shelf. We will continue to use the PDFs for game play.
  24. Picked up my copies today from my FLGS. Yes, I will probably use the books some as reference material. We use the later 2nd Edition Revised, Expanded, Updated rules for our game play and find that it is yet to be surpassed as an RPG for Star Wars.
