    Just checking in to say that I've never seen something that looked so gorgeous that I nevertheless had zero interest in. And I love that it comes with a Vic, of all things.

    I adored that image with the Star Galleon and the container transports too. Those were really, really cool to see.

    I love how "deep" the bridge crew decks look as well. It really captures the "enormity" of how big an ISD's bridge should feel.

    I see FFG have announced wave 6, at least to Gamescon attendees.

    A new faction, with all ships focused on bringing them up to line. The blurred photos looked interesting, can't wait to actually see the official announcement and photos.

    With all these x-wing announcements, I've really got to catch up with the game!

    There. Now don't say I don't do anything for you.

    My friend says the minis, despite looking like DUST Tactics scale, are 25mm round base minis. Or, the same size as WotC ones.

    EDIT: I'm getting these live over FB, so... Enjoy an ATST:

    See, I'd be more inclined to buy these since the packs aren't randomized like the WotC ones, but... I don't have anyone to play with. So they'd just sit on my desk and look pretty until my cat decided to play with them.

    I'm not even buying these with the primary goal of playing but for collecting. And my cat is a true lady, she never knocks over stuff and leaves my minis alone (consider I've got 2 shelves full to the brim with Imperial Guardsmen and a few Space Marines, I'm really thankful).

    What I also want from Armada is the ISD (because it's to iconic and cool not to have) but I'm also wondering if we'd maybe also get the Nebula-class and the Endurance-class. Which why I'm still hoping for a K-Wing as well.

    A dungeon crawler... nice!

    I hope there's enough focus on the head-to-head skirmishes. My RPG group plays.. well... the RPG. So we probably wouldn't do the campaign missions.

    I've never been a ship minis guy---certainly not enough to collect an ongoing line---but Armada's a possibility. I dunno.

    So I hear the Force and Destiny beta is out, and the new system is the morality system, with emotional strengths and weaknesses. My interest is piqued.

    Ooh, very nice looking Assault Frigate MK II. I remember using those a lot in EaW, was never sure where else they showed up, but nice to see such a great looking model of it.

    "Pipe down, you know you love it!"

    *chloroforms screaming wallet*


    Ok. I'm Officially Poor.





    I DO however wish that we'd gotten our K-wing, Scimitar, and Tie Droid before a third faction. Ah well.

    But I want official versions with Cards.

    How about a wave of: K-wing, Scimitar Bomber, Assualt Gunboat and Tie Droid?

    I'd be happy with that.
