  1. Yea. That's how I saw the ruling falling. It was just nipping at me because they never found any other errata, nor did I in any updated huge ship rules. Thanks for the consensus.
  2. Sorry if this has been addressed, but I haven't found it in searches yet. A small/large ship can execute a manuever passing _through_ a huge ship, and as long as final position doesn't overlap basses, there is no negative effect? Ulike passing through obstacle rules. Treat as normal ship movement rules. That's how I see it, but some guys were debating the issue during a game recently. Thanks
  3. Dual Firespray. Heheh. What is this, 2013? Game on!!
  4. I thought the same, but it would also require the Slave title for the top slot. Doesn't help Andrasta, but helps The Slave. I wanted something to make ordnance easier to use frankly.
  5. Honestly Beatty. I feel like I'm playing micro-machines vs Matchbox vs Tonka vs Power Wheels at this point. I love Star Wars and X-Wing, but between the cost of another, the wild irregularities and the early frustration, I don't think I'm going to enjoy this one. Carry on.
  6. Yeah. I guess 19km so 19000m. Not according to my book from 14 years ago. Also *5000 gun emplacements for the character who brought up weapons. K. I don't care anymore. This poops so crapped and I'm actually starting to not like the game anymore cuz it's so all over the place. At least X-Wing players should rejoice. A more convoluted game arises. Scale is an issue for me now, not to mention Tourneys are gonna be crap with squad placing, damage, shields, bump, woops. Feel more frustrated with this one. I think I may just cut my losses, go back to X-Wing and Fly Casual. Even Battlestar Galactica isn't this stoopid. Later y'all
  7. Eh. I'm getting sick of canon. George Lucas is a ****** and we're squabbling over poop. According to my book it's 8000m, but perhaps I should consult Wookiepedia cuz I'll believe anything the internet tells me. Cheers and blech
  8. I can respect that position, can you respect ours'? Also when you say SSD you mean the Executor, right? Because many of us are still really open to a SSD, just not the Executor class for reasons stated.Also NorseHound. If your going to scale the Executor down to 40-% size and obviously underpower it...... What's the point? Isn't it just an "Epic" sized ship called Executor or SSD when it's just an "Epic" sized ship that another class is of same size. The SSD then becomes a token "thing" Just the big bad midget SSD that the pro would like. I wouldn't play it and I'd laugh if someone did. If they release it for casual and tourney Epic I congratulate those who will use it and really hope you enjoy it, sincerely.Just so we are on the same page and for the record it would be at 15% of its comparable size to the ISD which is at 80% of its comparable size to the VSD. Not just 40%.Just because the Victory is the only ship I can in hand measure, I felt Vic standard was appropriate. I shall call it VSD standard lol.900m=5.5" 8000m=48.4" 40*48.4/100=19.36'. Executor at 40% (displaced relevant to a Corvette and VSD 2.25"/5.5"= 40.909%) Any scaling relative from Vette to SSD disparity I'll leave to a mathematician. But the scaling becomes horrible versus what The Executor should be and should just be assigned to an Epic sized ship of approximately 3168m (2800-3700??) for 19.36". Silly really. If they make an SSD scaled down, whatever. I don't care. It's silly and I wouldn't buy a token midget.

  10. Actual scale to Corvette vs smallest conceivable scale (per Victory scale i.e. .9" Corvette) 6'×3' almost 1/3 length of field, 2/3 width. Eliminates standard placement. Would have to be a length-wise scenario, AND it's 40% it's size but should still pack a wallop. Should it's left flank still be limited to one attack no matter how many ships sit on it? How many attack dice? Twice no matter at 9+ dice? Bye bye all med-small ships. Have fun avoiding getting close to that Rebels.
  11. According to those house rules, did Rebels then win as depicted by FFG's Armada Epic tease? (And why is Luke all the sudden way over scaled?
  12. I'm all for stations and platforms and the wide variety of EU ships Hound. The point is scale _is_ relative. Right now it's stretched. Push it further and it becomes broken and silly. If you take the Victory as scale, to get an SSD relative to the broken scale of Vic to Vette, your looking at a 22" model. At that point it's self-explanatory. It becomes broken. Speed, yaw, shields, hull, everthing. Scale is already off. Please FFG and SSD supporters..... Don't make it silly.
  13. Death Star baby. Anyone think FFG will release in a future wave. Could be balanced on Rebel side by a scale Yavin IV. Why the heck would anyone want an SSD anyway if they could get a "fully operational battle station"?
  14. My wife is gonna hate Star Wars soon. Not only am I anticipating 500-800+ games of Armada; Our group is salivating for 800-1000+ Epic X-Wing battles when the Raider hits. This is getting bad in a good way. Haha.
  15. I'm sadly not seeing Armada as conducive to foam. More display and take what you need. Don't get me wrong. I have alot of X-Wing stuff foamed. But the breakdown concernes me a little more here. Squads are definitely staying one piece. Ships... I just don't want to wear these guys out too quick.
