You definitely don't need the MC75 expansion to have a chance. Every ship in Armada has a place in competitive play. The MC75 has some great upgrades included, but nothing too far above previous expansions.

What I like to do to start building a fleet is to either pick a commander, ship, or theme(tons of bombers, fast heavy hitting, slow tanky) and build out from there. There are plenty of fleets that would not benefit at all from what the MC75 set offers.

I'm not familiar with voltron. What's included in a voltron list?

I'd only seriously consider buying an Armada SSD if it included the canonical action figure trapped in the hull.

Is that the story? I thought it was GW saying you can have Star Wars or you can have us.

And no one in their right minds would pick GW over SW.

The Voltron list was three CR90 Covettes and two Pelta class Command ships. You can decide to keep them all separate to (theoretically) deny your opponent too many kill points. Or combine them all into a tight pack if he put most of his eggs into a single basket (say a juicy Star Destroyer) and then attrition his shields and tokens into the first few turns, then pound him to death with a thousand papercuts.

If you use the "tokens to regen shields" strategy upgrades, as well as the blast doors, it can be a maddening list to deal with. But it's all still very fragile.

So... it looks like if you have the proper fit out to the assault version you can nuke an ISD in two and a half turns. My opponent flew a Raider in close and it subsequently evaporated.

I'm now thinking that the one thing that will really kill her is the objectives. we were discussing them last night and you'll more than likely never have initiative so you'll probably be playing to one of their objectives that benefits them.

I have to admit I am super tempted by the Miniature Market preorder price of $150.

ye you folks are lucky, i have to buy it at retail if i choose to go for it.

even with the discount, the local tax would erase the discount, then you have the shipping on top, so it would actualy cost me more to buy it at discount in u.s then to buy it at retail in norway.
