As a conflict progresses, both sides learn things from the other. Crews will gain combat experience and battle plans will be altered based on how technology reacts during engagements. And that’s just what you’ll get to simulate with the Corellian Conflict expansion for Star Wars Armada fr...

Congratulations! You’ve made it to Saturday! *throws a little party* Mine’s been busy so far. We’re just a couple weeks out from Gen Con, and that means about a million little things to get done (along with a couple big things) before heading to the show. My “To Do” list...

The Year of New Editions means a lot of work for a lot for a lot of game designers. So in the initial release of those new editions, there might be parts of the game that had been around, but weren’t updated right away. This means the games get to you quicker, but then some […]...

Dun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-nun na-na-naaa-naaa, Barracuda! Even if you’re not a fan of classic rock, you might be a fan of taking out your enemies from up in the sky. Or maybe you just want some giant robots (we all know my thoughts on giant robots). The new Barracuda flier and a set of R...

I thought a Special Forces TIE was something a Navy Seal wore to a formal occasion. But it’s also a new type of TIE Fighter for the X-Wing Miniatures Game. It’s got an improved sensor array and also a turret for its gun. I’m still not sure how it doesn’t blow its own solar pan...

Star Wars is all about conflict. It’s sort of, y’know, right there in the name. It’s not Star Peaceful Talks Next To A Fireplace, after all. Nearly countless soldiers fought for the Rebel side, looking to free the galaxy from the tyranny of the Empire. If you’d like to be one ...

The Third Horizon beckons. Humanity has taken to the stars. The first to make it out to the remote star cluster that is now called The Third Horizon were called the First come colonists (seems appropriate). They worship the Icons. Meanwhile, a new wave of people have started arriving in the system. T...

“Waste not. Want not.” The Rebel Alliance certainly does their best to not waste resources. They really can’t afford to, as they’ve gotta be sneaky in their war against the Empire. That includes finding old ships and updating them. Such is the case with the ARC-170, which will...

The Empire’s hold on individual star systems doesn’t leave much room for people to live free and express themselves. If an Imperial does something against you, chances are good that you’re not going to have much cause for redress. Or, even if the Empire isn’t directly involved...

Huge, capital starships might be trading fire back and forth, but it’s the small, nimble starfighters where the action is. They zip and weave among each-other, as well as the debris being created between the larger ships. This is combat on a personal level. Pilots dodge and weave, looking to ge...
