    A counter-attack by the Imperial fleet at Yavin X dislodges the Rebel foothold there, leaving the foes holding two worlds apiece, with all to play for!

    If you would like to join in it's easy - head on over to the group to learn more 🙂

    My Imperials intercepted some Rebel transmissions from an asteroid field at Yavin X and went to blow them all to little, tiny pieces...

    Preliminary Rebel thrusts at Kamino have been blunted by the Imperial Navy, perhaps decisively.

    Meanwhile the Rebels continue to hold Naboo and Yavin X, though both are within reach of a successful Imperial counter-attack.

    In the Holonet chamber...

    “A most unfortunate turn of events, Grand General.”

    Even from the other side of the Galaxy, Tagge could feel the cold, seething rage from the Emperor.
    “Indeed, but this campaign is far from over my Lord, and we have much to draw confidence from.”

    Tagge kept calm and felt fortunate he wasn’t briefing Lord Vader who would have almost certainly killed him by now.
    “Explain.”   “We have successfully trialled the new Onager Class Star Destroyer, which has caused significant losses to the Rebel fleet. We have also gained valuable intelligence on their new Starhawk class vessel and are now working on tactics to counter it.”   “Yes, the Onager has proven a powerful addition to the Empire. You will deploy them at Naboo in preparation for the Rebel’s coming assault.”   “Naboo?”   “The Rebels will look to free Naboo in the hope of inspiring those worlds who still remember the pitiful Republic fondly. You will not allow this to come to pass”   “Yes my Lord, I will begin preparations immediately.”   “But if it looks like the Rebels are winning then your new weapons will be turned on Theed.”   Tagge nodded, instinctively knowing what the fate of Naboo’s capital would be.   “You will wipe it out."

    The Emperor smiled before continuing.

    "All of it.”

    In a shocking reversal of fourtune, stunning Rebel wins allow them to take the lead - albeit by only a slender margin - at both Yavin X and Kamino!
    Come on over if you would like to read some of the battle reports, or even join in and potentially win a prize!

    The Empire is still winning in the Yavin X system, but a convincing Rebel victory has pulled it back from the brink!

    Head on over to the group if you want to join in - it's really simple to register your battles so they count towards the final total, and be in with a chance at a prize 🙂

    A flurry of activity sees further losses on both sides - the Rebels pull things back around Yavin X but have been unable to achieve their strategic goals. However a scouting foray in the Kamino system sees them gain a temporary advantage over the Empire there!

    Hi everyone,
    The Armada UK & Ireland Facebook group is running its first campaign!

    The Talos Offensive is an easy to play campaign which YOU can take part in. The aim is to encourage everyone to play more Armada while we're in lockdown, using either Vassal or Tabletop Simulator.

    Any Rebel vs Imperial battle can be reported and contribute to the overall result - and to sweeten the pot you could also win a prize for taking part!

    If you're interested then come over and join the group to learn more about the campaign and how to play. You don't have to be in the UK or Ireland to be a member of the group or win a prize 🙂

    If you can find one (or two) the Arquitens Light Cruiser would be a decent addition. It comes with the best Admiral for the Victory-class, Moff Jerjerrod, plus some handy upgrades, and is also a useful ship in its own right.

    However, just about anything will work - there are very few 'duds' in Armada, so honestly get what appeals and you can find for sale!

    Remember back in Spring 2019 when Amazon.com was selling the Victory Star Destroy expansion for around $10? Yeah, well, I bought 4 of them. (As well as 4 Interdictors for $12 each.)
    I also acquired 4 used core sets and collections from eBay and local players who lost interest in the game during the Great Armada Drought of 2018-19.
    2 of the VSDs that I acquired had broken antennae, so I requested replacement antennae from Asmodee Replacement Parts, but apparently they didn't have any replacement parts, so they sent me 2 VSDs instead. Very generous.
    That's how I ended up with 10 VSDs.
