Battlestar Galactica armada

Recommended Posts

I've been considering a "Battlestar Galactica: Wings of Glory"

So I like what you're doing and hope FFG consider doing an official starship and starfighter game based on BSG. Perhaps even a "Cylon Assault" ground game. Perhaps when the rumoured movies start.

Would rather it was based on classic BSG.

The problem is IMO there aren't enough warship classes in either version to support a game like Armada. New you can dip into the Online game, Deadlock, or both to fill out the fleet. Classic you would have to go pretty much pure fanon or developer created for anything other then the basic battlestar and basestar classes.

If two Battlestar classes + classic battlestar against a tide of new and classic basestars is not enough for you there is always the "crossover".

I don't need 30 different ships, just 4 good are enough, when did you used more than 4 ships in a 100 points x-wing game?

I know that I tried to share an idea of Battlestar galactica X-wing with vipers. I know that I have no success... :(

 

I want to share the photos of the blog of Sr. Dies. macellumeventus A great dream come true.

There are some Titanium series micro machines of the galactica and Pegasus that would fit the scale nicely. I'm not sure how hard those are to find. I know Eaglemoss has started a new Battlestar Galactica series of models.

Good news for you - it'll be at Gen Con.  I had some question answered about the game here:

Are they going to actually have point values for things? Biggest hindrance to actually play their games.

 

Will they be getting different people to run demos? Twice now I have gone into the Ares booth at Gencon to demo a "X of Glory" game and the guy doing the demo was so bad, and had such a poor understanding of the rules that I was talked out of buying it.

Unfortunally it seems that Ares, went for very large capital ships so that the "slightly larger than X-Wing" Miniatures could fit somehow to the captial ships.

Lets see how that works.
