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.
I was lucky enough to have another game with long time friend Todd (@RaesburnTodd) against his Rebel fleet. This was my first opportunity to have a go at a battle report for Armada and I'm always searching for feedback.
I've used the Decimator for my squadron loadout in Armada recently, so I figured it was time to give my minis a paint job worthy of table time. I also managed to sneak the Firespray in, seeing as that ship has done me proud, too.
A quick coat of gray after an undercoat of black, followed by an ink, really keep the tiny details visible. Next, I just picked out the details and brought them to life using a tiny brush, before spraying them in some varnish.
The Firespray was painted using the exact principles as above; however, it had a few additional colours to tinker with: green for some of the armour plates and red for the skirting around the bottom of the Firespray.
It certainly was a bit of fun to get out the paint brushes again after a long break, and I look forward to seeing these painted squadrons on the table next. Thanks for reading.
