  1. https://www.nobleknight.com/Products/Star-Wars-Miniatures-Knight-Models-30mm This stuff is hard to get a hold of. But Knight Models made the best Star Wars miniatures ever produced. I could never afford to buy any until they had to drop the license. It's one of my big mini gaming regrets.

    Star Wars may have the worst fans, but Armada has the absolute best. I love that Anthony sounds surprised/confused while mentioning us.

    New factions

    I think Star Wars: The Resistance hints that Starkiller has it's own propulsion. IIRC, Poe and Kaz find a system with a dead star and an abandoned First Order weapons factory. Maybe it just kills the star and leaves immediately. However, that makes me think that firing Starkiller once doesn't fully deplete the star, since the resistance tracked with the shot was from after it destroyed the Hosnian system. Could also mean two stars, though.

    You're welcome, friend. Glad I could address your concerns.

    New factions

    https://mobile.twitter.com/missingwords/status/1063958128411074560?s=21 My quick search shows that: 1) It specifically takes place after TLJ 2) The story is as canon as a theme park ride can be. This seems similar to the OT. Who had any idea the rebellion was larger than what was on Alderaan? Yet somehow, between large time jumps and a desire to sell more, cool looking toys, the rebellion turned out to be a galaxy spanning organization with all kinds of cool space ships.

    New factions

    This trailer for Rise of the Resistance(a canon story) shows the Resistance having a fleet that's obviously different from TLJ fleet. All of these ships may have been acquired after TLJ, but it shows there is a Resistance presence outside of the flotilla we see on screen.

    Multiplayer - Radio Silence Mode

    I actually kind of like the idea of the Grand Admiral choosing WHICH player activates during their teams turn. But they are only allowed to decide the player, not the ship. This might work better if the Grand Admiral doesn't have a fleet of their own. This would help the GA be able to keep the big picture without having to focus on his own world.

    Regionals Data Project 2018-2019 Season

    Not sure who will be in Indianapolis. But I can ask for info.
  9. We've had an ongoing battle companies campaign since September. Unfortunately there are only 4 of us, but it's still a ton of fun. My Dwarves have wrecked face. My company rating is around 380(a lot). Do it! Isengard is a great faction to play because their warriors are fantastic and can be purchased fairly cheap. Most of the tactics recommendations I see for Isengard is to basically take as many warriors in a pike block as you can with Lurtz as your leader. They have a lot of variety too, which makes collecting an army a little easier.
  10. 5th was definitely my favorite edition. It had the tightest ruleset(thank you, Alessio Cavatore), and I played it WAY more than any other edition. Plus my beloved Dark Eldar received, what I still think, is the most gorgeous mini line they've ever produced. 4th was pretty good. But toward the end of 5th the style of the game started changing from battles with armies of troops, some tanks, and some elite stuff, to giant mechs/monster/demigods with mandatory troops thrown in, sometimes, to hopefully hold an objective for a turn before they die.
  11. The lack of releases has worked out for me this way as well. Middle Earth SBG re-released last August, and I've enjoying only having one line of minis to worry about collecting. I played Dark Eldar back in 5th and (early)6th edition. 40k has never been good for it's rules, but 8th edition has seriously turned me off of the game.

    Odd numbers on game night?

    We're fortunate enough to play at a FLGS that's busy every evening of the week. While we do have a designated star wars night, there are always people there playing other games. Most of the time the odd man out has something else they can play while there.
  13. We've had a Battle Companies Campaign going for a few months at my flgs. My Dwarves are kicking butt! I'm loving the updated rules for ME so far.

    People still playing?

    @Gottmituns205 You still in Cbus? Our group has grown a ton in the past year. You'd have no trouble finding a match.

    Is there an event at Origins?

    There typically aren't Armada events at Origins. However, we do have a rather large Armada community in Columbus. So if you're in town for the week, send me a message and I can set up some people/games for you at a local store. Mondays and Wednesday are Star Wars nights at two of our stores, but there are people who have other days/evenings free.
