    I hope we only ever see this design from here on out if only to irritate the complainers more. 
    Arguably all the Mon Cal designs look like tumor ridden pickles, excluding the MC-75 of course, so this notion that the MC-95 design is magnitudes worse then any of the others is highly amusing. 
    Personally I like the fins. At least it’s trying to distinguish itself.

    I desperately HOPE we get a Lucrehulk. It’s such a brilliant design.

    The "I don't like it so I don't want you to enjoy it either" mentality among Star Wars fans is maddening.

    Hahahahahaha, what? 
    I'm over the moon that the cards are no longer absurdly tiny. I'm also over the moon that I can now put all the cards in a card box rather than try and manage storage of confetti sized cards.

    Personally, I absolutely hate that idea. I don't know who you are, the person who made that decision, but what were you thinking?
    A standard gaming table it 182cm by 120cm. That leaves you with a 15-cm wide strip of space for your cards (on both sides). With American mini cards you were able to neatly place your cards in 2 rows, clearly visible, along your ship cards. Even with that, in a 400 points game, if your fleet had multiple ships, upgrades, and 8 aces (good old Sloane, Rieekan or Dodonna), you started to get close to running out of space.
    But with this? Can you imagine running a fully-kitted Starhawk? Or an SSD? Or running a 500+ points game? You can't even do what you could in X-Wing (slide cards halfway under each other) because the cards are vertical and all the text is in the middle! Many (if not most) X-Wing players in my city just stopped bothering with upgrade cards, and instead just bring printed A4 sheets... and X-Wing takes half the space Armada does... do we want that for Armada? I don't.
    And the wasted space! There is so much wasted space. Ackbar and Commander Leia are definitely way up there when it comes to amount of words on a single card, and yet almost half of the text box is empty. Why? The letters also seem only marginally larger than on American Mini cards, so what is the point?
     
    I understood prize cards being standard-sized. I didn't like it, but it was alright - rare, few fancy cards (I especially like my 1st place Profundity), though a dozen ended up merely posted up on my wall. But standard everything...? No. That's just inconvenient.
    And before you say - "ship cards are getting smaller" - yes, but you only have a few on the table, as opposed to a 20 or more upgrades, and you save only half a centimeter per card, while Standard are almost 2cm wider than Mini, and you will have to place them in one row instead of two.

    I would start with a hair dryer, and some rubber bands. You may need to build a frame to give you the propper tension points. Apply tension to just beyond straight. Apply heat across the bend evenly. It may take several attempts to relax the offending part.
    I had the same issue with a 2 part shapeways SSD. Only one side had the hogging.
    You could also try taking it apart to see what side has the issue. That would at least tell you what side needs to be relaxed with heat.

    One method I've used with some success on much smaller plastic models, is to dip the affected part into boiling water for just a few seconds, and then hold it in shape until it cools off.
    Works better on softer plastics, so attempt at your own risk.

    The Munificent has massive guns on its bow, the bulk of its heavy armor facing forward, and we only see it onscreen firing its forward batteries from a distance.
    Meanwhile every other Seperatist ship closes in to engage enemies at point blank range with broadsides. 
    So they made the Munificent a broadsider? Really? Ship of its talents?

    I am so so happy we have Clone Wars ships. I can live with whatever at this point. Doesn’t change that the choice is incredibly silly.

    The Munificents Main Armament aside from the 2 heavy prow cannons are the 26 heavy dual turbolaser turrets though, that are located under the "wings" of the Munificent. As seen in TCW and the indredible cross-sections, they can only ALL fire forward when a target is below the ship, not when its directly in front of it. While the turrets (13 each side) can easily swifle sideways, so it kinda makes sense as a broadside ship. And the Frontarc still throws more dice while representing only the 2 heavy prow turbolasers and the 2 small longe-rage ion cannons, compared to the 3 red dice on the sides that represent 13 turrets each. So i would argue those massive prow cannons are represented fairly, although i agree that the idea of a special arc would suit the ship.

    Preferably not. 
    Movable parts means breakable parts. 
    Armada is too expensive to risk breaking ships. 
    There’s a risk/reward ratio here and I’m not seeing how much the reward justifies the risk here.
