As you will have seen from my recent posts that I have slowly been getting back into Star Wars Armada. I delved deep into this game when it first came out and bought many of the first set of waves. but then as usual with me and our gaming group other distractions came along and I lost track of releases and what was going on in the community.
But after finding Crabbok's YouTube channel (Check out his channel great videos of what is fresh and new in Star Wars Gaming) when looking up Star Wars Legion I found his love of Armada and this got me to hunt out my crate that I had stored everything in and see what I had in my collection.
Having a mix of Imperials and Rebels but nothing really that would allow any variations in my fleet builds and sorely lacking upgrade cards I made out my shopping list for the Imperials to start off with:
SSD: I mean it is huge but Gor Dam I want that model for my shelf lol
Chimera: This is a Star Destroyer variant that brings Thrawn as a commander and some other useful ship cards
Gorzanti Imperial Assault Carriers
Imperial Light Cruiser
Imperial Star Destroyer: I have one but jeez love a big space triangle and there is no way to replicate that famous scene from Empire without 3 of them
Imperial Light Carrier
Onager Class Star Destroyer
Imperial Squadron packs 1 and 2: I have both of these already but I reckon that more Squadrons cannot hurt. Plus I do love a Tie Bomber.
I think one of the issues that I am going to have is how many of each ship variant do I want?
Since the release there has been some price rises and getting hold of some of the items is getting quiet hard. But hunting cap was put on a I started scouring the internet.
I found on good old Amazon these two items well under RRP so even though the Pelta Frigate was not on the list it was to good an opportunity not to pick up, for maybe a future fleet. The Interdictor was also a great price so with these two new ships under my belt the shopping has started
I will be doing an unboxing of my purchases in the near future so you can see the models and what cards etc you get, but now time to pack for a much needed holiday. We are off to Tunisia and hopefully if my leg is feeling a lot better we will be able to go on a planned Star Wars tour as some much of the films and backdrops have locations not far from where we are staying.
May the Force be with you.
