    TFA is a scene by scene reshot of ANH. All they did is that they added Finn who up to this point did nothing in the movies.  If you would remove him, the event's wouldn't change, not even a bit.

    Totally agree except Subjugator Class. I rather see the Lucrehulk as a huge ship for Republic era - maybe with 2 large bases side by side...?!?

    Hello, I mostly do Runewars batreps, but here is me potentially starting over here in Armada.
    For some background @Narcaustic and I have been playing since the game came out.  Over the years, we have always enjoyed doing a big oversized deathmatch when something new comes out.
    We went 1200 pts, made of 2 fleets, with a gentlemens agreement of no squads due to time constraints (and possibly narcaustics fear of bloated Sloane-balls)
    My lists:
    Bolt 
    Faction: Galactic Empire
    Points: 600/600

    -  External Racks  ( 3  points) 
    = 51 total ship cost
     
    So... it begins.
    Round 1.

    On round 1, with ozzels speed boost and Jerjys tight turns, I shoved the SSD straight into the midst of Narcaustics Ackbar force.
    I did this to cut his fleet in half, preventing concentrated repeating shots in one hull zone.
    The rest of my fleet moves out to perform pincer encircling attacks. I figure an ABT and a Vic gunship should be enough to contend with the Rieekan liberty force. 

    My SSD escort force (the red ships in the corner) swings a little wide, I was concerned about the SSD back end power sliding in unpredictable ways.
    Round 2.
    I'm finding that the SSD is a bit scary to fly at speed 2, unless its piloted by Jerjerrod.  He makes it a walk in the park.

    A tight spin on the SSD brings it out of the Hornets nest it stuck its nose into.  It takes some heavy hits from the wall of mc80s, but gives back equally hard.  It really wants those escort ships stuck in the corner still.
     

    The AvengerBT squares off against the 3 liberty row, but takes some hits on the way in.  That flank is not looking good.
    Round 3.
    Palpatine arrives on the scene in the red ISD and finishes off the mc75 just before it delivers a full payload into the SSD, that was a close one!
    More Jerjy turns keep me maneuvering around the mc80s, but that side is losing shields fast, and with the mon cal wolverine effect going strong, I'm not leaving much of a mark.

    I pull the Avenger strike...and fail to kill a liberty.  The whole flank goes down.
    The liberties are hurting, but have plenty of time to repair.

    The remaining vic gets too close and starts bumping the SSD.  Oops.
    Round 4.
    Ackbar gets blown to fish bits this round, which lessens the blows from the other two mc80s still standing.
    The SSD takes a daring turn straight for the edge of the board.  This leaves the last 2 '80s cut off and surrounded by the escort force that finally has gotten into position.

    The oncoming Rieekan fleet is presenting a problem though. 

    Round 5.
    Palpatine ISD takes down both weakened mc80s.

    The SSD makes a sharp turn to dodge away from the liberties, and avoid boarding itself.

    Ackbar whole fleet is down, but the SSD is half dead, this is close!
    Round 6.
    Round 6 was a bit uneventful.

    We counted everything up.  I had a 6/5 win by 24 pts.
    We decided to go into overtime, battling to the death.
    Bonus round 1 (7).
    I knock out a liberty, and bring the mc30 to 1 hp, than do a jerjy turn to ram the mc30...and rieekan goes down.

    The other two liberties become mired in a punching match with an ISD and a Vic looking the wrong way.

    The SSD is up to 26 damage.  Things are getting very dicey.
    Bonus round 2 (8).
    The ISD limps away from the two wrecks of liberties with 4 hp remaining.

    Redemption (Neb) puts 3 more damage into the SSD (up to 29!)
    Due to redemptions approach angle, I can only shoot it in the face,  so it lasts the round.

    Redemption falls at the start of round 9.
    The SSD still stands!
    I have to say,  the Executor 2 varient is an insane beast of a ship.  The smaller variants are pretty reasonable, but this is a whole different kind of monster!
    Thanks for reading!

    I personally doubt we would get and don’t want to get an imperial Venator. There will be a lot of overlap between GAR and the Empire as it is. Imperials getting to have the GAR flagship model reduces that difference even more.

    Hi Andrew!
     
      Star Wars Armada is expecting the Clone Wars in late 2020.  Can fans expect a faster release schedule once that happens?   Currently we are averaging 1 or 2 new ships a year, and we are wondering if that pace will increase once new factions are introduced.   Additionally, can we expect continued support for Empire and Rebel fleets, in the wake of the new Clone Wars factions?  Thanks!

    So, people have been clamoring for the SSD since this game released. 
    Since the very first request for an SSD, I have been saying that I thought it was just too big to fit in the game and it would either look off or be prohibitively expensive.  I think my words were along the lines of “even with the sliding scale it will look too small.”
    When it was announced I still maintained my cautious stance of, “I don’t think it will work.”
    Throughout this entire time I have had a caveat, that I had faith in FFG and if they could pull it off, I would retract all of my previous statements.
    I finally got my SSD yesterday, and I officially retract all of my previous statements.  This thing is gorgeous.  Sure, it’s not in perfect scale, but it’s big enough to dwarf everything else on the table, and you can easily ignore the fact that it isn’t scaled perfectly (what in Armada is, after all) or imagine that it’s a tactical overlay on a holo-table or something, rather than a perfect representation of all the ships.
    I was wrong, the ship is amazing, and FFG pulled it off.

    I honestly don’t see the point of a Tector from a modelling perspective. I certainly don’t need a third ISD model.
    As for a card to use with existing models... I guess. But even this feels a bit pointless.

    You guys keep bringing up the Dreadnaught but each time I look it up I'm wholly uninspired by the design and lore or the ship. To me it just seems nothing more than a low poly filler ship for Tie Fighter (game).
    Why does everyone care so much? Sell it to me.
