What will Wave 8 bring?

Payload- If you take any damage all your squadrons within distance 1 blow up.

I was thinking more along the lines of "If an enemy ship overlaps you, you may roll 2 black dice, deal a facedown damage card to each (hit) and (crit) symbol. If one of the symbols is a (crit) symbol, deal the first damage card face-up" so kinda like a more dangerous minefields

In all seriousness, what is going to be in wave 8?

It certainly seems that FFG are staying clear of anything in the old EU, Eps 1-3 and things that don’t see much screen-time, (Dornean gunship or whatever it’s called) & focussing on Rebels & new movies.

I honestly can’t see the Venator or Aaclamator coming & I’m hoping they won’t muddy the waters with Ep7+ stuff. So what’s left?

Something from the new Solo movie? That’s about all I can fathom right now.

I haven't even played one proper game of Armada but I want GUNBOATS.

Also, Strike Cruiser, Star Galleon, Escort Cruiser, Skipray Blast Boat, Missile Boat, Katana Fleet Dreadnought, TIE Scimitar, Lancer frigate, TIE Avenger, maybe some TIE Experimentals (Emperor's Hammer nostalgia glasses :)), MC40, MC90, Action IV. List goes on :)

The Emperor's Hammer?  Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long time...

I honestly wouldn’t mind a Chimaera treatment for a few ships. Maybe a new Imp ship and reskinned, new variants of a Liberty or Assault Frigate. 

Not sure that’s a great road to go down.

An AF Mk1 as a different ship & model would be welcome but repaints just seem....lazy.

A new cards pack would be great. That could include new models ala Cymoon & Kuat.

I wouldnt mind some cross faction stuff where appropriate (like the Neb-B) or new stuff like the afmk-1 or the Neb-B2, or the Brahatok or the Mon Remonda (although thats no longer cannon)

I’m fine with expanding into the new stuff if they ignore the cannon stuff and just scale it in a way that makes more sense for Armada. 

Gameplay >>>>>>> Super accurate Fluff for me

I don't see them producing an SSD, its too big a model and it completely blows the power balance out of the water.

Frankly I will take just about anything if it means we get more than one release per year.

wait for Starhawk blueprints/artwork

X-wing released an epic ship for Rebels first with no same class/size ship for the Empire, who just filled their list with more ships, same can easily apply here too.

I'm not going to argue about how it would fit scale wise in the game, but I would put money down we'll see the Executor soon. My reasoning being that we do not have Piett yet. We have blink and miss officers, but not one of the most famous who commanded the aforementioned ship. Suspicious!

 

On another note, I would like to see an Aces pack like X Wing has. Especially one that makes some of the less played ships more viable. Ie. A title that makes raiders more anti squadron oriented either through inclusion of better defense tokens or some other means. And the same for Neb Bs which I am told only really see play with either the Salvation or Yavaris title.

Seeing how we got the current wave 6 months after Rogue One came out, I wouldn’t expect any sequel content till summer. 

Im hoping we won’t go six months with nothing new, and that Wave 8 will be announced within the first 3 months of the year. What it will be... I have no idea. 

Could we get “Huge” based ships? Maybe. Could it be a veterans pack for an older ship? Maybe. There remains a lot of virgin ground left to cover. I’m hoping we at least get 2 announcements per year, even if we don’t get 2 releases.

FWIW, for casual play you can get miniatures for most of those from Mel Miniatures, and stat cards and bases from Armada Shipyards among others. See links above.

(Also an Emperor's Hammer / EvR alum here!)

They are Armada's version of the Gunboat comparing to X-wing.

The old books made a real big deal out of them...not necciarily the most well defined ship. If i rember correctly, they were in theroy a match for an ISD and they were unmanned(i think) like i said my memory is quite vage about them i just know they were the crux of several old books. Racing to find them, trying to snag as many for each of the respective factions, useing them to 'riders if rohan' a battle or two. Theres (im sure) a whole wikipedia page devoted to them.

Emperor's Hammer?

Come on guys, keep it PG. ;)

 

I know I wouldn't mind more ship titles also, keep the models of ships but change up the cardboard with new hull arcs to go along with new refit options for them.

 

All of that takes time and balancing though.

I would love a campaign with new titles, and then re-release like the Chimera, for refits and TF titles.

Currently the only ship type with close to enough titles is the ISD. And personally, I would love to see them give as a third ISD expansion pack with the Tector, and some other refit!
