    SSD and Objectives

    None, basically. We know that two of the four SSD variants are meant for (I believe the phrasing was) "bigger games", and that's about it as far as I know.
  2. I would like to attend a tournament like this, please.

    What’s your favorite ship model so far?

    Pelta, by far. Such a gorgeous ship. Second place goes to the Assault Frigate Mk II (yes, genuinely). All of the Mon Cals apart from H1 look pretty cool too. I'm not a huge fan of the Imperial aesthetic, but there's something about Gozantis that I find really pleasing to the eye.

    VASSAL: Armada Draft Battle Reports

    @webv vs. Villakarvarousku webv: 296 Villakarvarousku: 188 MOV: 108 (7/4) First player: Villakarvarousku Objective: Solar Corona webv's Victory Raddus'd in on turn 3, but got fairly quickly destroyed by an MC30 double arc, a Decimator, and some long range fire from the Arquitens and CR90. However, the Torpedo Frigate ended up double arced and swiftly blown up by the MC75 while webv's squads burned through both of my Arquitens and most of my squadrons. My Decimators and CR90 managed to finish off the Quasar on the final turn. Thanks to webv for a great game!

    The blue man

    This is correct. FAQ: "If the ship that General Rieekan is equipped to leaves the play area, a ship or squadron already affected by this ability remains in the play area until the end of the Status Phase."

    Armada is Strong and Growing!

    It's looking promising in Helsinki, Finland as well. Last year, I played one proper game with someone who also collects Armada (i.e. not counting the handful of times I managed to coax my brother or a friend into playing with me). Since about April/May, I've found two people to play regular weekly games with, and through that we've sparked the interest of at least two newcomers and had a few people walk up to us with "oh cool, I've been trying to find other Armada players around here".

    VASSAL: Armada Draft 2.0 (Now Playing)

    @JJs Juggernaut You can put commanders in the sideboard, right? edit: I'm going to assume so and submit my fleet. If not, there isn't really anything else I could / would want to put in its place anyway.

    Villakarvarousku's repaints

    Finally got myself a Pelta! This is easily my favourite ship model in the game, so I was a bit nervous about doing it justice, but honestly I'm rather happy with how it turned out. I just realised that I totally forgot to do the windows at the very front though, so I'll probably fix that later at some point. On the other hand I kind of like them dark, so maybe I'll just black out the tower one too. Anyway, can't wait to get it on the table in a couple of days! I also bought a second CR90 a month or two back, pictured here on the right with the old one on the left:

    How delightfully weird. Count me in!
  10. Except that over here, Father's Day is in November... 😁 I fully agree with your point though.

    Why do people want a super star destroyer?

    Yeah. For me, the current large ships are plenty big enough for what the game can handle, and I just don't see how anything bigger could work in a reasonable way. Maybe it can, but I certainly don't feel any need for it. I'm not bothered enough to complain if they do release it – at least I'll get to skip a wave as I'm still trying to catch up with older stuff – but I hope that it will be for some special format only so that I don't have to run into it in regular games.

    7th Fleet title and a name Title

    Is the Learn to Play booklet considered official rules? If so, page 21: "A ship cannot equip more than one title card."

    AI for Armada - Some tests

    Looks interesting! I'm slightly concerned about setting the commands by rolling dice, but I suppose you can always fix anything horrendously stupid with the overriding rule, and I don't really have a better solution in mind either. I'll try to give this go when I get a chance!

    Valuable Payload Battle Reports

    Thanks for the game! It was certainly an all or nothing plan, and had I managed to catch Jaina's Light I might've been able to last/first Yavaris to bits and scoot out. I pretty much knew LTD had it in the bag when I flew Foresight too far out and JL managed to slip by. Nevertheless, it was a very exciting (and refreshingly quick) game. Congratulations on your well-earned victory!
