During episode 9 of the last podcast I was able to unbox the new Armada ships, but since then I still hadn't even had a chance to get a game in with them. I didn't even have a gaming buddy to call upon, so just ended up having a game against myself.
Unless you've been hiding under a rock lately (or on holidays like myself) and you haven't noticed the latest drop in Armada then you'd notice a lot of discussion around some of the latest upgrades. I normally am not a fan of loading up ships with a full burden of upgrades, but I might be making an exception with these as they really can make a major difference.
In the usual fashion Todd (@raesburntodd) display, we got in a re-match from our previous battle a few days before, eager to continue our way down the Armada rabbit hole.
It was time for a well overdue game of Armada with my regular sparring partner Todd (@raesburntodd). Although this time, rather than sporting a traditional Imperial vs Rebel conflict, he was turning up with a darkly shaded Imperial Fleet. As soon as he pulled out an ISD and Admiral Motti, I knew I had my work cut out for me.
I'm very excited about the new Imperial Light Carrier for Armada. Not only have I just started playing this incredible game, but here is a new, cheap ship, capable of controlling large amounts of squadrons that I'm sure I could find points to fit it in.
