  1. Yeah, I have the defence tokens from 2015 Nationals (all except Contain since it didn't exist at all back then) with only the green side printed - since then they've put out all defence tokens with black acrylic and red backside except Redirect. It doesn't make sense to start with a new look before completing the black acrylic series...
  2. Was expecting black acrylic Redirect tokens in the coming Store Championship kit... Did I miss out on those somehow, now that they start over with Brace tokens with a new look?
  3. Hi, Trying to build a fun and versatile Lola for Carcosa, together with Akashi, Minh and Mark. But I have never tried her before, so feedback is much appreciated! Thanks! https://arkhamdb.com/decklist/view/5437/dark-lola-redbrowngreen-1.0
  4. The only Swedish Regionals = The inofficial Swedish Championship?!? :-) Welcome to Hoth! (Actual movie shooting location not too far away, actually!) https://www.facebook.com/events/1767685503530326/
  5. Congrats again, Björn, very well deserved! I'm totally stoked that our (expanded) northern Scandinavian community of Östersund-Trondheim-Umeå managed to snag the entire top 3! Short on time before Nordics I hadn't really decided exactly what fleet to build, so in the middle of the night after playing X-Wing Nationals and then going on to drink one too many beers I had to decide on a list way to late at the night before the tournament. I've played a variation of this fleet at both the Trondheim SC (which I really should have won had it not been for 2 stupid mistakes) and our own SC in Östersund (where I was both sick and TO:ing, so I didn't play really well there either). Both of them had been with Jerjerrod, and before that I had flown Sloane for a while, so I was choosing between those commanders. ISD + 4 Gozantis was going to be the ship set-up, that much was certain. I decided on Jerry + Boarding Troopers, choosing amazing manoeuvrability on my ISD over Sloanes squadron boost. I removed Tua and ECM from my Slicer Supressor, figuring squads and/or Avenger would likely kill it quickly anyway, reduced my bid and strengthened my squads instead. Removed Needa and TRC, going with SFO and H9 instead. So finally my drunk-made fleet ended up like this: Admiral Hilleberg's Copenhagen Task Force/B (391/400) ==================================================== Imperial II-class Star Destroyer (120 + 51) + Moff Jerjerrod (23) + Skilled First Officer (1) + Boarding Troopers (3) + Electronic Countermeasures (7) + Leading Shots (4) + H9 Turbolasers (8) + Avenger (5) Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 + 11) + Slicer Tools (7) + Suppressor (4) Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 + 2) + Comms Net (2) Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 + 2) + Comms Net (2) Gozanti-class Cruisers (23) Squadrons: Maarek Stele (21) Colonel Jendon (20) Dengar (20) "Howlrunner" (16) "Mauler" Mithel (15) Tempest Squadron (13) Tie Fighter Squadron (8) I might do a match by match report later, but going undefeated I'm obviously very happy with how the fleet worked. Still I'm not sure if Sloane would't have been better - in some games I never used Jerry but in the last he was game winning. The H9 is not guaranteed its spot either. Probably played some of the games a little too cautious and as usual I did some mistakes, but only taking small wins meant avoiding facing Björn - he's already declared I wouldn't have had a chance against him! <3 The tournament was very smoothly run by Kevin (great guy who's done fantastic work for the Danish Armada community who I've known since we met at Nordics 2015) and all opponents were relaxed gentlemen who were there to have a good time.
  6. Ardaedhel - my sister lives in Woodinwille - next time I visit we could try to set up a game! However, I live in Sweden, so it might be a few years away...! :-P

  8. (Channeling Shaggy) Brought a big ball of Rhymer - Wasn't me. Ozzel was his commander - Wasn't me. Speed three, goin' too fast - Wasn't me. 400 points, go-in' last- Wasn't me. M'wanted, Outposts; Positions - Wasn't me. Too few upgrade additions - Wasn't me. Roll blanks on my black dice - Wasn't me. Even when BCCs lemme roll twice. And, no it really wasn't me, though I do hope to visit Sweden (and my other Green Knight friend) sometime next summer. Hi Mikael, Let us know if you fancy a game while in Sweden! If you're on Facebook, look for the group "Star Wars: Armada Sweden" to find players and/or tournaments in your area. Since it's still a small community I'm sure many would welcome an international guest. :-)
  9. Glad you got some good games in here in Östersund, always good to have you here! I met Mikael that you faced on the final table and he kicked my ass. All those bomber rerolls really put the hurt on! But my dice certainly didn't help, never seen so many blanks and my Demolisher blanked out completely against his space potato despite OE - 2 reds on long range: 2 blanks; 4 black: blank + 3xhit - reroll: 4 blanks! With Avenger in range it could have made some difference if I'd rolled at least average... Not that I could have won that game, but at least get away with some more points. Wish I had that game on film so I could see what to do differently. Third game (against the Corvette swarm with bombers) I didn't set up optimally, but lost because I smashed my ISD into the squad furball where I had managed to bind pretty much all of his squads! That, and the fact that I didn't escape with my Demolisher final round but charged instead! Hope to see you in Trondheim in 2 weeks!
  10. Which are your favourite Armada podcasts? Looking to download a few for coming roadtrip. :-) Thanks!
