  1. I am curious when Wave 10 will be announced. It’s a momentous wave, what with the Venator and a likely Grevious commander for CIS. I fully expect Venators to be bought in groups of 2 and 3 by most Republic players.
  2. Imgur will let you host images online for free. You can then grab the URL for the image and paste it into your post.
  3. I prefer them as single ships. It's just so evident what they are as singles. But your choice, ultimately!
  4. Rules only tend to be enforced when challenged. I think in this scenario, @xanderf, your fate lies with your opponent (but if you were challenged, you likely would be found not meeting the criteria). Would I challenge such a rule? Heck no!
  5. This. As someone who fields VSDs quite often (I own three of them, and not a single ISD), I can tell you: if I could run multiple VSDs with Support Team built in and a Speed 1 yaw value of 2, I would never run a VSD-I or II again.
  6. And at least half a dozen typos.
  7. Agreed, the Nihil ships look terribly generic. They could hail from any number of fictional universes not called "Star Wars" and I wouldn't be able to tell you the difference.
  8. As an Armada player, all I can say is wow. Gernes and Brooks were the game's two primary designers, having spearheaded most of the recent waves (Rebellion in the Rim, Starhawk, Onager, Clone Wars). And now they're both gone. Again, wow.
  9. I'll use any excuse to advocate for a new Extra Large base, so let me use this thread to do just that. If ISDs and Starhawks are difficult to kill (particularly in Task Force matches), how hard will the Lucrehulk be to kill? Or an MC85 or Resurgent? An Extra Large base would be a good opportunity to bring half-point rules to non-Huge ships that play more like Huges than Larges. It also eliminates the need to nerf existing ships (admittedly though, Larges might become even more attractive if Extra Large were implemented; that's why I don't design the game!).
  10. The plan: (AMG headquarters) "So we've just had three games thrown on our plates, each of which is arguably larger in scope than the current (and only) game we've been working on for the last year. What do we do?" "Well I guess we should learn how to play first!" I suspect it's going to be awhile until we see anything AMG-X-Wing, AMG Legion, or AMG Armada.
  11. It’s a good question. I wouldn’t be surprised if my interpretation is wrong, but I always figured you’re playing against the cardboard, not the plastic miniature. You should be able to play without ships so long as you have the bases, right? But again, whether tournament rules agree with me or not, I don’t know. For what it’s worth, I’ve done similar: my Vader squadron has one TIE Advanced flanked by two TIE/LNs.
  12. I can’t like this comment enough. And don’t forget the *original* Baby Yoda: Teek!
  13. Speaking of which... how about the people who say “Bah, the sequels didn’t have enough ships”? Ummm, go back and watch the original trilogy and do the math. People are blinded by Legends content and confuse the two as being the same thing. Were some sequel designs updates or re-skins of existing designs? Of course, but design serves the story, not the other way around. If the US Navy can replace the Hornet with the Super Hornet, why then can’t the New Republic replace a T-65 with a T-70, if that’s what the writers deem appropriate?
  14. How are you all getting so much game time in (presumably in quarantine)? Tabletop Simulator? Vassal? I'm sitting on multiple unused expansions at the moment, thanks to 2020!
  15. Fair enough. The women deserve equal ridicule. And I throw the Red Letter Media guys in there, too. This isn’t just about Sequel haters.
  16. Tables procured! I now have a 6x5’ play area, which leaves each player six square feet (1’ x 6’) for cards, tokens, and accessories.
  17. Yes, nothing like grown men making hour-long YouTube videos proclaiming how much they hate a children’s movie to convince me of their merit.
  18. If only the effects shots were allowed to breath a bit longer... the ILM demo reels of Exegol have a completely different feel to them than the film itself.
  19. Michael Gernes was let go from the Armada team, too. No word yet on Brooks Fluguar-Leavitt, right?
  20. Thanks for the observations! I'm anxious to try out my new products myself, but alas, we're still in lockdown where I live. I have a lot of gaming to catch up on.
  21. You think you're young and hip until one day, you wake up and realize you have no idea what Discord even is.
  22. I've ordered multiple products direct from Asmodee (Wave 8 pre-order, Wave 9 pre-order, multiple game mats) and have had nothing but positive experiences. (Except for having to pay for shipping on certain orders.)
  23. Interesting. I would have thought Resistance or Scum (based on Kylo’s line in VII), but Resistance just got a squadron pack in Heralds of Hope, so that can’t be it. Perhaps you’re right.
