  1. Armada Fleet Builder app for iOS

    Ap works great for me! It’s become my go to squad builder.
  2. Task Force Antilles--worth it?

    I am going to be very surprised if one mc-75 doesn't have a fleet command slot. That'll save you from taking a pelta. Less room for hammerheads though!
  3. New wave

    You must be looking forward to the new bored-ing parties then!
  4. Dornean Gunships!!!

    The bridge looks a little Star Trek-ish, but it feels close enough. Much closer than Naboo style anyway. This is one heretical case where I think the original movie design is inferior to the cartoon.
  5. Trailer up

    Those new Resistance vessels don't really qualify as capital ships. They're flotillas at most. And you know what? That's awesome because they're flying in a flotilla formation in the trailer. These would look awesome grouped together on a small base. Controversial statement - maybe these are new B-wings! They're more gunship than fighter sized, but SW dogfights are inspired by WW2. These could be B-17s! Those were a lot bigger than their escorts. They even have ball turret defenses. My heart yearns for a proper capital ship scrap, but we might need to wait for the 3rd in the trilogy again. This looks cool too.
  6. Size of the Quasar Fire

    To be fair, a lot of the bad EU designs come from old video games where polygons were very limited. That's no excuse for the E- and K-wing though. And the Star Crusher. Oy the Star Crusher.
  7. Size of the Quasar Fire

    It's a grey triangle. The Empire would sue for copyright infringement.
  8. It's a gozanti with slicer tools!
  9. I think you're right. We'll see them sometime. They'll cost a fortune and they'll be lots of fun. However, let me unleash my nerd rage for a moment. Jovial pirates...stole a super star destroyer? Aren't there thousands and thousands of personnel aboard each one? How could a group of cheerful pirates possibly have the resources to pull that off? I doubt the Rebels would even have the manpower to keep one, but Johnny Depp does? These are the shenanigans that make the Empire look like Keystone Cops...and it implies the new expanded universe will have just as much dumb stuff as the old one /nerdrantover
  10. Cannot get your ship out: 3/1-3/4

    Hey I just wanted to say thanks! Your articles are thorough and entertaining. CGYSO is my favorite Armada strategy source. My fighter-fu is already much improved.
  11. Fire When Ready: A new Star Wars Armada podcast

    Yes, I usually listen to Ackbar at least twice.
  12. .... or we give FFG a little break.

    I think we've got more to come, but if not, it's very very possible that part of the release needed to be timed with some date from Disney. If that date got pushed back, FFG needs to go along with it. License partners can be tricky to deal with. Obviously that's speculation, but we know Fantasy Flight wants us to buy their plastic ships. They're going to do everything they can to get our money and satisfaction. The other thing is...The slower release schedule means I AM buying more of the old waves. If the release window was smaller, I wouldn't have 4 CR-90s.
  13. I will buy you collection for $25 American dollars.
  14. Assault Carriers and Rebel Transports

    Maybe they're waiting for a Rogue One trailer to show off the other stuff.
  15. The Weirdness of Wave 3 and what it may mean

    I bet they count as a ship. See how the combat refit has no side dice? That's probably to prevent spam with Ackbar. They can't attack from the sides so they can't get his bonus. Those arcs hint flotillas do benefit from flagships.
