Much like the Assault Carriers also coming out in this new wave of ships for Star Wars: Armada, no enemy admiral is going to exclaim in terror the worry of a broadsides attack from a Medium Transport. But that doesn’t mean they’re not worth bringing to the battle. What they lack in pure, ...

TIE fighters aren’t known for their durability. Even those with a bit more armor and some shields aren’t as rugged as an X-Wing or Y-Wing. So the chances of making it through enough battles to make it to “veteran” status are fairly low. However, those that do make it there usu...

The other day, people were kinda bummed that the new Force Awakens ships had arrived from Fantasy Flight Games, but the new Imperial Assault Carrier wasn’t available. Well, it would seem that the bigger ship just took a little longer to maneuver into place, as it, too, is now available....

Hello there, all you gaming friends out there in gamer-land! Seems for the moment that it’s actually going to be a bit winter-like here in Atlanta. At least for a couple days. No, it’s not like the winters I remember in Chicago, but if we had a winter like that down here, this place would...

We know that the Empire was more about “quantity” than “quality” when it came to their starfighter designs. Most TIEs didn’t have shields or all that rugged of hulls. As such, a lot of pilots didn’t really make it long enough to be considered “veterans.”...

I ain’t afraid of no Ghosts. But Imperial and Scum & Villainy players may be. But informing yourself is the best way to rid yourself of such fears. Granted, Rebel players are going to be learning all they can about the new Ghost expansion for X-Wing as well. In other words, everyone should...

The next big thing is making its way to the tabletops of X-Wing Miniatures Game players. The Rebels quickly got out of the gate with two epic-scale ships in the form of the Tantiv IV and the Medium Transport. The Imperials finally got on the board with the Raider-Class Star Destroyer. Now they’...

I’ve always been a fan of heavy ordinance. A-10 Warthogs have been my favorite military aircraft for decades (I even had the G.I. Joe version when I was a kid). So when you see the TIE Bomber for those few seconds in Empire Strikes Back, those became my favorite couple of seconds. Well, little ...
