  1. I hope they do Clone wars. I have 2-3 friends that will buy in if they do. Also, I know enough people in the younger generation prefer that Clone war era to GCW. The movies are not better, but between the Clone wars cartoon and the overall big picture lots of people like the time better. Lots of people watched Ep1-3 before 4-6, especially if they were being released when growing up.
  2. Very well said, to add to it: -Armada is alive for a good while. You don't spend months playtesting a model and developing two different variants (epic/casual + tournament) for a game you are about to scrap. -From the looks of it they did cards perfectly. There are no new or must have upgrades as they are all reprints. Only new cards are titles and officers which is completely fair. Therefore, if you are a rebel only play there is no need to buy. Even as an empire player if you cant afford it you only give up a few officers and commanders. - $200 is very reasonable for a model of this scale. Other SSD's on the market go for $400-600. This comes with model, cards, templates and balanced for a game. http://www.korbanth.com/non-sabers-model-props/ssd-model-kit/ https://www.shapeways.com/product/R7XA8JZ2A/armada-super-star-destroyer-executor-3-parts?optionId=59750924 Overall very happy. Clone wars is my #1 but this looks well executed
  3. Played this last night. Worked out pretty good. The one problem is the Rebels deployed at distance 3 from their edge adn speed 3. However, they were still unable to start taking shots till turn 4/5. So next time I will need to make sure I put the station more to the middle or allow them to deploy further up. Either way it was a learning game for 2 friends and they had fun. Would recommend. I reduced the number of fighters to 10 on table for empire and 8 for rebels. Easily enough or else it slows even more.
  4. Thanks! Going to play my first game again tonight. Might try either Sloan or Raddus since its a learn game.
  5. Can you elaborate more? My original list was: 3 MC30's Author: gmeista Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 392/400 Commander: Mon Mothma Assault Objective: Opening Salvo Defense Objective: Hyperspace Assault Navigation Objective: Intel Sweep MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - External Racks ( 3 points) = 70 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) = 18 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) = 18 total ship cost [ flagship ] CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Mon Mothma ( 30 points) - Jainas Light ( 2 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) = 83 total ship cost MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Admonition ( 8 points) - Lando Calrissian ( 4 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 92 total ship cost MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Foresight ( 8 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 88 total ship cost 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 1 Z-95 Headhunter Squadron ( 7 points) = 23 total squadron cost Are E-racks a lot better now?
  6. Hey guys, I put armada on an about one year break (left right after I got Sloan and 2 HH’s) but getting back into it. I bought the two new expansions and looking forward to getting back into it. Just curious about a few meta questions. I am loving to read the 3 ISD thread but curious about 2 ISD’s. What is the consensus on those lists, 2 ISDII or 2 Cymoons? Also what do the list look like? Add 2 Goz? Also, I had a super fun MSU 3 shrimp (MC30’s) list but are those lists dead now?
  7. Nice looks solid, but I doubt I will buy 2 Pelta's to niche right now Here is the updated list. I will probably start here and change to flavor. I could add the Gallent Haven but we will see. Rebel bombers Author: gmeista Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 392/400 Commander: General Rieekan Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Fighter Ambush Navigation Objective: Solar Corona Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57 points) - Yavaris ( 5 points) - Flight Commander ( 3 points) - Fighter Coordination Team ( 3 points) = 68 total ship cost [ flagship ] GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - General Rieekan ( 30 points) - Ahsoka Tano ( 2 points) - Comms Net ( 2 points) = 52 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Bright Hope ( 2 points) - Toryn Farr ( 7 points) - Bomber Command Center ( 8 points) = 35 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Bomber Command Center ( 8 points) = 26 total ship cost Modified Pelta-class Command Ship (60 points) - Adar Tallon ( 10 points) - Fighter Coordination Team ( 3 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) = 77 total ship cost 1 Jan Ors ( 19 points) 2 B-Wing Squadrons ( 28 points) 1 Norra Wexley ( 17 points) 1 X-Wing Squadron ( 13 points) 1 Ten Numb ( 19 points) 1 Biggs Darklighter ( 19 points) 1 Wedge Antilles ( 19 points)
  8. Here are the edits. Not Jan's braces will really help here. Not sure if I have to many y-wings tho.

  9. Thanks for the replies, yea I was looking at it again. I am tempted to drop Wedge and one Y-wing and add two x-wings. The squads needs some playing around with. I find in our meta there are lots of ties and interceptors which I thought Tien Numb would be good against but have not tried him. How are the ships, am I missing any major upgrades or should anything be on a different ship. I think I will make the comms net flotilla my lifeboat.
  10. What does this build look like? Or what is considered better updates to it. This is my current and first attempt at it. Is there anyway that it would be more efficient? Rebel bombers Author: gmeista Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 395/400 Commander: General Rieekan Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Fighter Ambush Navigation Objective: Solar Corona Nebulon-B Escort Frigate (57 points) - Yavaris ( 5 points) - Flight Commander ( 3 points) - Fighter Coordination Team ( 3 points) = 68 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Bright Hope ( 2 points) - Toryn Farr ( 7 points) - Bomber Command Center ( 8 points) = 35 total ship cost [ flagship ] Modified Pelta-class Command Ship (60 points) - General Rieekan ( 30 points) - Adar Tallon ( 10 points) - Fighter Coordination Team ( 3 points) - Boosted Comms ( 4 points) - All Fighters, Follow Me!

  11. Thanks for all the suggestions. If I add H9 to admo should I just put H9's on everything instead then? Or just remove the XI7's completely. And add some more squads? Just Also what about the objectives? I was thinking intel sweep and having my one flotilla be the runner with Quantum storm. Then escort it with a MC30 or the TRC90 depending what they choose. Also, skilled first officers look awesome but I don't have any (Liberty is only ship I dont own) and the two ebay sellers I looked at were sold out. Wish those rapid re loaders were SFO's!!
  12. Just as the the title says, I have seen lots of posts about MC30's and their aggressive power. Anyways, they seem like lots of fun and interested in maybe trying it out, I currently own one but thinking of going to 3. I have seen 4 being used but sure I am as much of a fan of that. I did a forum search and couldn't find to many links to strategy articles. I did read one from Gink awhile ago but can't find it now. I think I would prefer the torpedo version and here is my first list attempt: 3 MC30's Author: gmeista Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 392/400 Commander: Mon Mothma Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Hyperspace Assault Navigation Objective: Intel Sweep [ flagship ] GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Mon Mothma ( 30 points) = 48 total ship cost MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Lando Calrissian ( 4 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 82 total ship cost CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Jainas Light ( 2 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) = 53 total ship cost MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Foresight ( 8 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 88 total ship cost GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - Quantum Storm ( 1 points) = 19 total ship cost MC30c Torpedo Frigate (63 points) - Admonition ( 8 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 86 total ship cost 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) For our meta the average activation is 4-5 so getting 6 would give me an extra activation the majority of the time. Additionally, no one else is really pushing for first player. The average bid is 3-6, in local tournaments I would like to bring 8-9 tho. In terms of squads the one squad does hurt. We have 6 players, 1-2 will bring a decent bomber wing with the rest bring more of a strong fighter wing. I am tempted to add Shara Bey but not certain what to take out. By biggest questions in terms of builds are TRC90 and the XI7's. I have read the cannot get your ship article on MC30's but curious if there is anything on how to attack/deploy - thanks! Edit: I found a very good thread after posting!
  13. My favourite blog as a newish player. Always so helpful!
  14. Made this list this week. Hoping to try soon. It probably needs refining as looking to do to much. Here is the first attempt: Interdictor shenanigans Author: gmeista Faction: Galactic Empire Points: 398/400 Commander: Admiral Konstantine Assault Objective: Most Wanted Defense Objective: Fire Lanes Navigation Objective: Minefields Victory I-Class Star Destroyer (73 points) - Phylon Q7 Tractor Beams ( 6 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 84 total ship cost [ flagship ] Gozanti-class Cruisers (23 points) - Admiral Konstantine ( 23 points) = 46 total ship cost Gladiator I-Class Star Destroyer (56 points) - Demolisher ( 10 points) - Ordnance Experts ( 4 points) - Assault Proton Torpedoes ( 5 points) = 75 total ship cost Interdictor-class Suppression Refit (90 points) - Interdictor ( 3 points) - G7-X Grav Well Projector ( 2 points) - G-8 Experiemental Projector ( 8 points) = 103 total ship cost 2 Lamda-class Shuttles ( 30 points) 1 Ciena Ree ( 17 points) 1 Captain Jonus ( 16 points) 1 Black Squadron ( 9 points) 1 Soontir Fel ( 18 points) To note my meta no one really runs MSU. Lots of mixed fleets and a heavy focus on squads. Not always 134 but most people bring around 100.
  15. What about something like: Faction: Rebel Alliance Points: 399/400 Commander: General Madine Assault Objective: Advanced Gunnery Defense Objective: Contested Outpost Navigation Objective: Solar Corona MC80 Star Cruiser (96 points) - Mon Karren ( 8 points) - Major Derlin ( 7 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Dual Turbolaser Turrets ( 5 points) - X17 Turbolasers ( 6 points) = 129 total ship cost MC80 Star Cruiser (96 points) - Gunnery Team ( 7 points) - Engine Techs ( 8 points) - Dual Turbolaser Turrets ( 5 points) - H9 Turbolasers ( 8 points) = 124 total ship cost [ flagship ] GR-75 Medium Transports (18 points) - General Madine ( 30 points) = 48 total ship cost CR90 Corvette A (44 points) - Turbolaser Reroute Circuits ( 7 points) = 51 total ship cost 1 Shara Bey ( 17 points) 1 Tycho Celchu ( 16 points) 2 Z-95 Headhunter Squadrons ( 14 points) I think I would run something like this. Don't see if being super competitive but would be fun.
