Gen Con FFG Anouncements

Recommended Posts

I've never paid attention to Gen Con before (I wasn't an X-wing player during last year's convention) so when can I expect new announcements from FFG? Will they make new announcements at random times during the 4 days or is everything we're likely to find out about X-wing already come to light?

 

Sorry for the noob question, please enlighten me!

At noon tomorrow i will be the most excited person in the world.  :D  :D  :D

 

And then they will announce the two new parts of Wave V:

  • The Naboo Fighter, and
  • The Bespin Cloud Car.

and nothing else.

 

No. They will announce the Gozanti and Vigil! And a StarViper.

While I would like to see a Star Destroyer, I think it would have to be scaled down to fit on a table.

Not by much, not if you're talking about an Imperial Class Star Destroyer. Those are actually a bit less then twice the size of a VSD.

VSD is 900m a ISD is 1600m. From the demo video, and other pictures, a correctly scaled ISD wouldn't be that big in Armada, maybe 8-9 inches long. The same size as the GR-75 Transport.

They'll just put the glass case on top of it!

 

IT WILL BE THE TABLE... hope it comes with Ikea instructions for assembly

Death Star in Armada would just be a zoomed out version of the playmat we already use for Death Star environment maps. I think they only time you'll see the Death Star in an expansion is if, after Armada sells amazingly, FFG moves on to a strategic game.

 

Which hopefully means putting away Star Wars Risk and playing something new :D
