    Happy Friday.

    I still feel happy like a kid whenever I look at my MC80. In my mind, that ship is the centerpiece of what I consider the rebel fleet. I am of course deeply biased due to playing Battle of Endor in Rogue Squadron way too many times

    Happy Friday - What is your local scene like?

    Pretty much sums it up - I also travel 3 hours to play nationals and regionals, where the Armada scene is much alive and well.

    Thank you very much! It indeed just prefers to dance around the enemy and try to hit them where it hurts the most. This list is incapable of trading blows against more optimised lists. Wall of text incoming! Sorry! Deployment is heavily influenced by the specific matchup and objective. Typically, I fly the Nebs and flotillas in flank formation while the MCL80 goes very slowly and head-on against the enemy. I try to keep it in range of Redemption, though. The cool thing about MC80 here is that with Madine + Engine Techs, it can become very unpredictable. So for deployment in a typical ship-heavy matchup, I try to create two threats by deploying the two "groups" apart, ready to flank the enemy: the Nebs + flotillas (which I use for blocking myself or the enemy when necessary) and the MCL80, as it usually is the primary concern for the enemy. Against bomber fleets, I try to take advantage of the massive AA flak my fleet can muster - so that usually means keeping the ships close enough to each other to make overlapping shots at enemy bombers possible. Taking advantage of Ahsoka + Redemption is usually not necessary in the first couple of rounds in either situation. This allows me to fly them far apart, until I or the enemy begin the engagement. As for the dials, I primarily use Navigate on the Nebs. I never use Concentrate Fire on them, as I prefer them to be in the right spot rather than trading blows. This means that I will actively use Navigate from round 1 to continously try to outmaneuver my enemy. The flotillas provide the Nebs + MC with Engineering and Concentrate Fire tokens. The Nebs in particular need to have some kind of reroll, and I simply can't risk to put them in a precarious situation just to get one additional die from a Concentrate Fire command: a dead ship is a useless ship As for the MCL80, I typically go (1) Navigate, (2) Concentrate Fire, (3) Navigate, (4) Repair, (5) Repair, and (6) Navigate. Raymus provides me with a Navigate token in round 1, which I can use in round two while I focus my long range fire on the enemy (if it seems likely that a long-range engagement seems likely when setting the dials). Then I restock on a Navigate token in round 3, which I can use in round 4. At this point, the Lib is usually where it needs to be in order to avoid being killed and can focus on staying alive. In my experience, this list can only hope to kill off some threats and then run away before the situation gets out of hand :b About Fleet Ambush, that's just a mistake. I may have miss clicked something there D: I'd put Planetary Ion Cannon in there or Contested Outpost, depending on my mood. Contested Outpost is so great - I usually try to bluff going for it while only actually getting a flotilla in range to grab points, while the Lib and Nebs go flanking the enemy

    Hi! I just saw the post and wanted to chip in with a very fun and but not so competitive list, that I have had some measure of success with Keep in mind, it's obviously a meme list Name: Madine's Gunline Faction: Rebel Commander: General Madine Assault: Advanced Gunnery Defense: Fleet Ambush Navigation: Salvage Run MC80 Battle Cruiser (103) • General Madine (30) • Ray Antilles (7) • Caitken and Shollan (6) • Engine Techs (8) • Heavy Ion Emplacements (9) • Spinal Armament (9) • XX-9 Turbolasers (5) • Mon Karren (8) = 185 Points Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57) • Ahsoka Tano (2) • Engine Techs (8) • Redemption (8) = 75 Points Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57) • Engine Techs (8) • Salvation (7) = 72 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Toryn Farr (7) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points GR-75 Medium Transports (18) • Comms Net (2) = 20 Points Squadrons: • Shara Bey (17) = 17 Points Now, the idea with the list is to jump around the playing field and picking off smaller targets or squadrons. The list has extensive AA coverage, and with Shara the threat is even greater It is be design that the MCL80 has two crit upgrades. The Heavy Ion Emplacements are used to peel shield alongside the Nebs while the XX-9 is to dig for those game-swinging face-up cards. Tokens are abundant and Redemption therefore frequently is quite helpful at keeping the Nebs and MCL80 away from complete annihilation. 10 % of the time, it works a 100 % of the time! Although I like Leia, I just NEED tokens in my lists. Tokens combined with Ahsoka provide immense flexibility: providing the right token for any situation.

    Raymus and Ahsoka

    One of my favourite officers just because of the flexibility she adds. With her nearby, you always have the right token 😊

    Any new waves/material???

    Good, good! Let the hate flow through you!

    Holy ****, we got an article

    Why did they make a third Nebulon alt art? Aren't there like quite a few other ships that do not even have one alt art?

    Dual Fleet for Tournaments

    Given what we've seen from the collection thread, I'm sure we can borrow a fleet or two.

    What a bargain

    Armada trade thread

    Anyone seeking to part with their alt art MC 75? Pm me!
  12. I was actually looking for some tips as well and this right here is very good! I hope I'm not asking too much, but could you perhaps elaborate on what paints you'd use for this? Would you use Abaddon Black from GW for the black paint, etc?

    MC 75 promo card

    I'd also like to trade for such a card if anyone would part with their copy ?

    Slicer tools

    'You' refers to the ship owner. So if you use slicer tools on an enemy ship, you get to set the new dial - not your opponent.

    What is the one ship you hate playing against?

    Demo. It always has a tremendous effect on the game
