All Hail the X-Wing! - Best Escort (of Captial Ships) in Armada

After finding them a bit 'meh' when Armada was released I now love the X-wing.  I think that comes from finally learning how to use them as Escorts the right way.  Not for my other squadrons, but for my ships.

Video - Making the most of Gun Lines

It's been snowy weather around here and as I am a teacher, that's meant a couple of snow days.  This gave me the chance to put together another tactics video.  This time I share some of my experiences with using Rebel Gun Lines.

With everything setup it was time for the Rebels to launch their campaign to free the Corellian Sector from Imperial control.  Let's see how the opening moves went.

Last Monday saw the start of the Corellian Conflict at the local game store, Dice Age Games.  We have 6 players that are all really excited about getting going with the campaign.  I am going to be posting the progress of the campaign here on the blog, so you can follow along.

The Echelon

It's time for another video about tactics and formations.  This time I move on to talking about the Echelon formation, which works great for Star Destroyers and other ships with strong front arcs.
