As dras said, this is incorrect, infact they have confirmed that the SSD will Not be the last model

 

Didnt PR confirm the Hyperspace report last year would include Armada?

All this time between waves and a vague promise that more ships are coming, but they cant say when or where, or how many are coming? How many times have we heard that?

 

Runewars also had studf 'coming' and was dumoes as soon as the final officially announced models were released.

I wouldn't be surprised if this is the end of Armada by the end of 2019.

Well, I'll take that as permission to be Smug when we get more Info :)

I mean, if you want to be Negative @SoonerTed, you certainly don't need my permission to be so...  Its entirely up to you and your personal feelings.

 

But on my end?  I think this is Awesome.  Half a Loaf is better than Hungry...  ABsolutely without a Doubt.

 

I'd rather a "mediocre campaign" now, and death by the end of 2019....  Then Nothing, and Death by the end of 2019...  Wouldn't you?

 

I mean, its fine to want more, but you gotta take what you get when its outside of your control.......  Embrace it.  :)

This wasn't PR.

This was the Developers.

 - Who were equally flabbergasted at what happened at the Hyperspace Report, too...  

Add in that the SSD just fot a six month delay, meaning it's essentially vaporware.

I hate to think Green Knight was right all along about Armada. But he is.

I'm liking IGGY-B with his Death Blossom ability.

Not that easy to use to its full potential but the threat of it may attract enemy fire, meaning Mauler may survive for a second ramming attack instead. Escorts can help. Also sitting IG88B on an obstacle since death blossom attacks are obscured anyway so might as well make incoming fire obscured too.

So no wave 8? I hate to be a Debbi Downer, but a box like this that is easy to print feels like we didn't get much in the way of an expansion. 

The campaign is actually a good thing, mostly as it adds a ton of new unit options and it looks like a bunch of new objectives.  In terms of a new wave, we will see; supposedly they are working on new models, and it is likely they are hung up in the same media blackout Disney has been enforcing on a lot of other licensee's for some stuff.  Also, there have been industry-wide production issues caused by trade disputes and competition for capacity (given the immense increase in games booking time with contract plastics shops overseas).  Everyone, (even GW!), has been seeing issues and delays...

I would very surprised if this was the end.

As others have pointed out, they virtually guaranteed more models are forthcoming, and strongly hinted at a Clone Wars release. That is good enough for me.

I have waited this long, so I guess I can wait a little longer. I look at the campaign pack as a nice little bonus to tide me over until the real deal hits the shelves!

My thoughts as well.  Someone also mentioned a cool idea around doing the Dornean Gunships and U-Wings together in a pack; I like that idea as well.  I assume they have a bunch of stuff they have been trying to get to, but also keep in mind Christian Peterson, the founder/CEO, and one of the designers behind Armada itself, left in January, so a lot of stuff likely got reshuffled and back-burnered from that, and new relationships and whatnot forged as new exec team got their hands on the wheel.  Those transitions are nearly always odd...

Honestly the MC75 shoulda had U-wings with it, much like Thrawn had the two Mando ships with it. 

Truth be told, I'm kinda struggling to comprehend where this game goes from here. The trickle of new product is like...one drop here...two years later...another drop...it's pretty bad IMHO. 

If anything they should do a Dreadnaught for the IMP's and an AF MK1 for the Rebs...

A little bummed out no ships in the immediate future, but the campaign expansion is a nice consolation prize.  Let's give a round of applause to our bothan spies who managed to infiltrate the event and ask several questions on behalf of our community.

So, if there is a victory upgrade, could there be a neb b upgrade?

I'm half wondering.  The squadron packs being for 'Rogues and Villains' is also notable, as that is one of the most common recommendations for step-1 upgrades from the core set, as it offers both factions something.  What with the overall campaign focusing on 200pt battles and 3' x 3' play area, it sounds like it has a strong secondary goal (beyond just adding to the game) of making a lower cost-of-entry game format out there.  Something you can meaningfully play and have fun with that requires just the core set, one squadron expansion, and merely one or two more ships per side...could help the game reach new audiences.

Yeah, and I think we will see alternate squadrons for the Rebel/Imperial II packs as well, and there has already been a Victory title spotted, so...  Would be nice if a few older ships like Vic's, and limited ships like Interdictor, got a new title or two, along with Rogues & Villains and maybe the newer "II" packs.

 

I suspect we will see a big wave of Clone Wars stuff announced at Gencon or something.  Maybe a small filler pack of Dorneans or some such before then.  Clone Wars would be next logical step, until after Episode 9 (if they manage to increase new ship classes enough to justify doing an Armada expansion for it).
