Rebel Hit and Run

Kevin and I finally got another game of Armada in!

I brought a similar force to what I took last time:

MC80 Battle Cruiser
    -Mon Karren
    -General Dodonna
MC30c Scout Frigate
    -Redundant Shields
    -Assault Concussion Missiles
MC30c Torpedo Frigate
    -Assault Proton Torpedoes
GR75 Combat Retrofits
B-wing Squadron
B-wing Squadron
X-wing Squadron (Luke Skywalker)
X-wing Squadron
X-wing Squadron
Y-wing Squadron

Kevin had a pair of Victory-class Star Destroyers, a Gladiator-class Star Destroyer, a Raider-class Corvette, IG-88, and a ton of TIEs.

Mon Karren and her escorts deploy in a broad line, with fighters and attack bombers close behind.
The Empire deploys her fighter screen well forward, reaching my forward elements before my X-wings can reach them.  The Raider-class takes heavy damage from a barrage of assault torpedoes. 
Mon Karren engages a pair of Star Destroyers alone, battering the Victory-class.
The situation after three turns.  The second Victory-class closes on the MC30 frigates.  The Raider is destroyed soon after.
Mon Karren narrowly glides past the pair of Destroyers, but her shields are heavily damaged.
TIEs make repeated runs on my MC30, but it holds fast.
The Imperials escape any more major damage, while shooting down most of the Rebel fighters.  
Total losses amounted to a Raider-class Corvette and a TIE Fighter squadron for the Empire, and four squadrons of fighters lost, including Skywalker's for the Rebels.  52-57 Imperial advantage.  


  1. Armada always looks so cool but I could never get into the game play. How will the rebels survive without Luke now? 😀

    1. We're definitely casual about the game, but we're finally figuring out that you only really get about four turns of engagement once your ships come into range. Hopefully Luke hit the eject button!

  2. The whiney bitch died, about time lol
