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.
Finally I've got around to posting up the battle report using the squad I'd posted up earlier in the week 'Girl-Power' featuring Rey and Norra Wexley. The game against my usual sparring partner Todd (@RaesburnTodd) who was running the same Empire list featuring Rear Admiral Chiraneau and Major Stridan he used at the Civil War event back in March.
I've been playing my long time gaming buddy Todd in Star Wars Armada for 3 days straight now, although we are both learning the game, we are having a fantastic time doing it. Having a game, talking about what worked well and equally what failed, comparing it to other war gaming systems and then offering advice trying to improve one another's game.
This is going to be a battle summary for yesterday's game where we were talking about a minimalistic approach to the Empire rather than an upgrade heavy fleet. Although I hated the idea of having only 3 activations, I was really keen to see how Moff Jerjerrod would turn the Star Destroyers turning circle into something formidable.
We put together fleets and Todd gave me initiative selecting Most Wanted from his objectives (which we both had). The Imperial-Class Star Destroyer would the the marked ship from my fleet, whilst the Command Cruiser would be my target.
My forays into Star Wars Armada are still limited, but over the past few days, Todd's (@RaesburnTodd) presence has graced me for a hearty daily serving of tabletop gaming.
Rather than present full battle reports, which would undoubtedly be full of newbie errors and possibly lame commentary, I'm putting together some battle summaries of each game with random observations. Eventually, I'll build these into battle reports of both the text and video variety.
Dangerous Territory came up for this mission, and Todd and I set up the obstacles and got to work.
The Civil War event came about because I consistently missed out on many X-Wing gaming opportunities while working away overseas.
I put a call out to the community in January to run a series of events changing venues as well as actual games. The first event was on the north side of Brisbane and challenged the X-Wing folks there - 21 players turned up to battle it out with a split of Northerners battling for bragging rights over the Southerners in a licensed venue, with lots of room to swing cats.
I hadn't much of an opportunity to get in as much pre-event flight time as I would have liked, so rather than try a new list, I made a few minor alterations to the Boba/Asajj MKII squad.
