    I’d love to see vader as an officer, allowing you to discard him to discard your admiral and replace him with another (perhaps of the same cost or lower for balance). Thematic and tactically amazing at the same time.

    So if "big" is related to a ship and since Thrawn's ISD wasn't considered the "big" announcement, it could imply any larger than an ISD ship. So any of the SSD's (Executor-class, Vengeance-class, Bellator-class etc.) or any of the Battlecruisers (Resurgent-class, Allegiance-class, Praetor Mark-II class, etc.)
    Alternatively "big" could also refer to a new era (first order/resistance or clone wars), a new game format (epic play) or a new faction (scum etc.)
    Any and all of these would be pretty cool.

    The first Kevin J. Anderson book from The Jedi Academy Trilogy is also a great read, especially the parts that take place in the spice-mines of Kessel. Unfortunately the second and third book are a downhill road from the first.
    The Thrawn Trilogy from Timothy Zahn is still the best series that takes place in the starwars universe ever written.

    Just like the word 'Armada' doesn't imply 1 capital ship + small escort. And we all know how that turned out

    Lord Tareq got a reaction from cynanbloodbane in Is it possible to buy spare ship bases?   
    I've been searching for bases forever, it's actually cheaper to buy a ship, throw away the ship and keep the base, than to buy individual bases. Really wish FFG would offer faction specific 'base packs' which include a base of every size.

    Just to be absolutely overly clear that he can turn as far has he likes I suppose  Could also be future-proofing vs potential abilities that reduce a vehicle's turn radius.

    So, from the rulebook, grenades count as a weapon upgrade that can be used by every model in the unit. Also from the rulebook, weapon keywords add up. I.e. 5 Stormtroopers in a unit with the impact grenade upgrade, will throw (within range 1) 5 black dice with impact 5. Makes vehicles a lot more vulnerable to infantry at close range!
    Seems to be a no-brainer for Stormtroopers to use grenades by the way for only 5 points, since it actually changes their attack dice to black at distance 1 or less. For rebels its a bit less of a no-brainer as their ranged attacks are already black.

    Good! Armada needs more ISD's and less obscure tiny ships

    Such a shame you can only have one. Would love to see lists with 2 or 3 large ships and 2/3 passes.

    Lord Tareq got a reaction from The Cocky Rooster in Unboxing of English language version Core Set   
    Yup that was rubbish. The dude was more and longer in view than the content of the box, which is always a bad idea when you do an unboxing video and are not a very attractive woman. I don't want to see a somewhat oversized guy, his room, his table, and a large distracting banner. I want to see what's in the **** box.

    Scope could be an abstract representation of enhanced targeting systems inside helmets etc. which would help with everything including throwing grenades. One of the old SW games had you play as a Rebel in Stormtrooper armor and the combat vision was like this:

    Especially the floating cross-hair would be useful

    Not just prevalent belief, it clearly states so in the rules. Also, with special weapons you have the option to fire on a different unit than the normally armed troopers, although if you do that the attack from the normally armed troopers won't get the keywords from the special weapon and vice versa.

    Considering how those spears and arrows were clearly more effective in the movie than the E-11 blasters, black die with pierce 1?
    Ewoks just rule, I'm sure if they had the capability to use starships they'd be the new overlords of the galaxy within a decade.

    It looks oversized yes. For me the Ton-Falk escort carrier will always remain the Imperial carrier though, so I'll never buy this model as I associate it too much with the Rebellion.

    Lord Tareq got a reaction from Formynder4 in Can we get some Golan Space Denfense Platforms   
    A Golan III is the equivalent of what, 2 ISD's? Would be hard to implement that in Armada unless you center a scenario around it. They would also be quite large models although the sliding scale makes that manageable I think.
    However the Golan I would be a nice option for an armed station with roughly the power of a powerful medium ship like the VSD.
