Happy Weekend Everything is burning. in Star Wars: Armada Posted March 31, 2017 Empire. I like the look of their ships better and setting up one or two big hits with a front arc is more my style of play than the 'thousand cuts' approach a lot of Rebel lists seems to use. I also find it easier to build squadron lists with them because they tend to be more neatly divided in to attacking squadrons or ships, while Rebels have more versatile squadrons (that are costed accordingly). I find I have an easier time sorting out what counts as enough anti-ship squadrons when I'm building Imperial lists, and Rhymer simplifies the problem of how to get my bombers on target quickly.
