Star Wars Armada AAR

Played my first game of Star Wars Armada with my son Alex! This was the learning scenario with the Empire having a Victory II Star Destroyer with 6 Squadrons of TIE Fighters vs the Rebellion fielding a CR90 Blockade Runner, a Nebulon-B Frigate and 4 Squadrons of X-Wing fighters. I chose to split my 2 ships in an attempt to get my CR90 in behind the Star Destroyer while my Nebulon B drew it forward. While I did kill off his fighters, my 2 ships were individually too weak divided so he picked them off, leaving me with 3 damaged squadrons of X-Wings vs his virtually intact Star Destroyer. Victory to the Empire and Alexander the Great!

Ghost Hot Wheels Comparison for X-Wing

20150703_113024Hot Wheels just came out with a cheap Ghost Freighter (From Star Wars Rebels) that’s a great scale for use with X-Wing and 5150 FC! Here is a shot next to an X-Wing freighter for scale. I plan to hit it with ink to get the lines detailed then some paint to detail and age properly. I’ll just use the YT-1300 for stats. Update: just added images after ink mass and mounting on base!20150703_11311720150703_113134-1
