Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

[Star Wars: Armada] Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design.

    I'm actually really, REALLY curious how you painted at such detail.

    I'm pretty sure the answer is "Magic!", except when he says it, there are sparkles like bad 80's special effects around his hands.

    My guess is fine tip felt marker for the colors, and a good wash for the highlights.

    And by posting that to the local X-wing / Armada facebook group, I've been invited to join a team tourney down in Champaign in a few weeks.

    I just used a fine paintbrush and some paint.

    I used to paint both the whites and blacks of individual 40k Imperial Guardsmen heads so this was a walk in the park.

    Also that Hammerhead expansion does indeed come with two separate small based ships.

    I impulsively bought an Arquitens Light Cruiser. I don't have any other Armada ships. I just like the ship model.

    There are many Interceptors, but this one is mine!

    I did that with the Imperial Star Destroyer. The models are really great for being mass produced.

    We just finished our first Corellian Conflict campaign with a crushing Imperial victory. 5 of our 6 players had never played Armada before so unfortunately some early loses piled up quickly and it was a landslide. We have kept our teams the same but have swapped factions and are prepping for another go as everyone still had a great time doing so.

    Some observations:
    • The special assaults (Hyperlane Raid and Show of Force) are really important especially early on for getting an initial influx of Resource Points.
    • Losing a game and potentially a base is still better than having to do a full fleet repair. Be prepared to evac (can declare to do so on turns 4 and 5) if needed. The difference between a destroyed ship and an evac'd ship is huge as every little loss adds up.
    • Base defense missions are no joke, especially the Armed Station. It gives the defender not only another set of guns, but another ship activation. Be wary about early base assaults until your fleet is prepared for them.

    How large a collection were you using to get that done or was everyone using their own ships?

    We actually used Tabletop Simulator via Steam to play it. I was the only one prior to the campaign who owned models. I purchased the CC box set to get the rules and additional materials and then coordinated the campaign online. The best part was that doing so actually sparked a number of them to go buy the physical models.

    Only house rule we put in place was that fleet lists remained hidden until the start of each game. This made it a bit more interesting especially at the start as you had no idea what your opponent was going to be fielding. Once the campaign got going, you had an idea what they had but could only guess how they spent their refit and resource points. Added some fog of war which helped.

    TTS Armada is very very good.

    That's kinda tempting honestly. Would need to see about getting some interested friends together and doing some practice game on TTS before we do any campaign stuff but could be a more practical way to play than another shelf of plastic.

    I don't mean to double post but I might have bought something large.

    Some might say it's imperial in size.

    I played the Corellian Campaign yesterday, and hadn't played for about a year. It was fun, and a bit odd.

    I took a list of TRC90s and YT2400s. It's what I default to when I haven't played for a while, because with a command stack of 1, no need for fighter commands, and the CR90's manoeuvrability, it's quite a simple list to fly. I usually take Mon Mothma but yesterday I tried Cracken, so I could use the TRCs more aggressively.

    I won the first two games, and added some A-wings, some upgrades, and a 6th corvette for the third (and final) match, but my opponents stacked on more anti-squadron (my YTs had dominated both matches and got a few bomber kills), tractor beams on most ships, some upgrades on the Interdictor, and and one of them had Konstantine. Now, the match ended when we ran out of time, so it was called a draw, but I think I would have lost (then again, I thought I was going to lose halfway through both previous matches). At any rate this match was going a lot worse for me, because they were able to build to counter my list. My list, however, couldn't really be built very differently - I was never going to have the points to add an MC80 and a non-rogue fighter wing, or change up the fleet in any other way.

    I guess if it had been 3v3 with more campaign matches, either my opponents would all have to build to counter me (benefiting my team mates) or I could try to avoid the 1 or 2 who were countering me, or play keep-away in a bad match-up, but since we went straight from the first two matches into the showdown there was none of this.

    It was interesting, and a lot of fun. The objectives were a bit surprising. I picked to attack an asteroid field because I'm so agile and he's not, that'll be great for me! Then oh, in this objective he ignores obstacles. Damn. Then I defended a base with Ion Cannons, I got to shoot at him every turn because I lined them up in front of his slow Vic and Interdictor, and did something like 3 damage every turn. His Vic was low on shields on all facings, with exhausted defence tokens, by the time it entered the battle. I only picked it because fighter wing didn't really work with no fighter commands, and defence station didn't work with an agile fleet that didn't want to be pinned down, I wasn't expecting to get much out of it, but it was a great help.

    And gratuitous collection pics:
