  1. Just feeling my affinity for the empire increasing.
  2. Darn. I had a forlorn hope that they would announce a Clone Wars version of Imperial Assault. I know Legion is getting all the ground mini love, but it doesn’t have a campaign mode.
  3. Dang, I missed it. I think both new ships look cool. Since one is a siege breaker and the starhawk looks to have a huge cannon on the bow, I wonder if that will be a new mechanic? Anything non-Armada of note?
  4. The Enterprises share the same name; they have different registries: 1701, 1701-A, 1701-B, etc. In Star Trek there is also the case of the Defiant, which was destroyed in battle. The Defiant class ship U.S.S. São Paulo was rechristened to U.S.S. Defiant after the first ship’s loss. They even changed the registry back to the first ship, (though this was likely done to reuse FX shots and models) There have been 7 ships in the U.S. navy that have shared the name Enterprise, the last two carriers: CV-6, CVN-65, and the upcoming 8th: CVN-80 have different registries to distinguish them. Enterprise is an auspicious name in the U.S. navy. Harbinger could be an equally important name to the empire, and once one is gone another ship could be given then name. Since they don’t use registry numbers it would be very difficult to tell them apart.
  5. I ordered from CSI who shipped it via FedEx Ground. I could drive down to Orlando and back in an afternoon, but It is going to take Fedex a week to ship this package. They are sitting on till later this week. I’ve worked in shipping and receiving, and I know that UPS will get any package sent in state to its recipient the next day. I loath Fedex; I think even the USPS would have had it to me by now. Sorry... had to vent. Anyone else out there have the waiting blues?
  6. The reason being that the executive that green-lit it left Fox, and the replacement saw no profit to their career in supporting it so did everything possible to sink it including limited marketing, preempted episodes in favor of sports, and airing the episodes out of order. The show wasn’t given a far shake. I will agree the adoration it gets can be over the top, but it deserved better than it got. To be honest I don’t see a reason for their to be a competition between Star Wars and Firefly, anymore then their should be between Star Wars and Star Trek. The world is big enough for all of them and more beyond. We are richer for more options. As for this thread I believe, and my comment in particular are speaking of Firefly: The Board Game - A pick up and move game similar to Outer Rim. That game with nice little minis that could easily used in this game; it would just need a custom Outer Rim Ship Mat. I don’t think that is an outlandish idea that a fan made version will be posted online sooner rather than later.
  7. I’m just wondering how long it will be before we see a fan made Firefly ship mat so we can use the ship models from that game in Outer Rim.
  8. Another week or two and we should have it in our hands. I’ve seen FFG do this with several other products. No change to the project status list, then BOOM - It will go quickly from In Development to shipping within a week. It’s probably been on the boat the last couple of months and they just got around to updating the status. https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/upcoming/
  9. So the hot new thing I’ve seen popping up over the net is the Tier List Creator: https://tiermaker.com/ Eckhart’sLadder made one with a video for Legends ships: Anyone planning on doing some Armada content? I’d volunteer but I don’t have enough play time to make informed decisions. Plus 9 month olds take up a lot of time and energy. This could be a cool resource for players though if anyone is interested.
  10. I really like the designs even if I’m not 100% on board with the sizes. https://imgur.com/a/rygUgp5 The two from the massing at Sullust especially seem a bit on the small size. I always pictured them as being bigger, just for away from the foreground.
  11. Slowly. They will handle it slowly; releasing a new wave every 9-14 months for the next 4 years. By then they should be ready for the sequel trilogy.
