R1H4 and Steve Skyshuffler square off in an Intel Sweep!
My friend Eric Riha (AKA R1H4), who is a battle computer, has recently gotten into Armada- and we couldn't be more excited! When Eric was able to get to my place for a weekend of gaming, we made sure to get in two Armada games. (ed. note: Sorry Eric, the second one had only a handful of pictures so I can't do a proper batrep... I guess the world will never know how badly you stomped me in that second game!)

In our first game, Eric tried the Rebels (for the first time, I might add), and I took the Imperials in his first 400 game. Eric chose Intel Sweep as one of his objectives, and as mentioned on the previous podcast, I was positive I could disrupt it. In this case, I selected Demolisher to get in, nab the point Eric needed, and GTFO. Eric selected Tantive IV as his objective ship.
Closing Thoughts: Gah! 4 points! I am glad to see being player one on Intel Sweep isn't an auto-lose like I had originally thought; despite Eric getting me, it was by such a close margin I can't feel too bad about it! Gladiator IIs aren't worth it. Furthermore, I think there is a diminishing return on Gladiators in a fleet. A few are awesome, more than a few are unwieldy and avoidable. This was a mega fun game! 400 points rules!
