Prime opponent Sean and I were finally able to get another game of Armada in! As always, my game room is the lab--and this time I wanted to finally put a Corvette swarm on the board. I knew that it wouldn't be as strong as I once thought, but I had yet to see for myself! It should do okay unless it runs into the Motti brick wall! Oh. Prime Opponent went for his first 3 VSD Motti build. Ouch!
With a 1 point "bid", Sean elected to go first and chose Hyperspace Assault from my objectives. I planned to get Salvation back there and just hammer away. So, how did the swarm do? Read on to find out!
Fleets built using Fab's Fleet Generator. Awesome 3D Terrain by Space Rocks (Remember to use IFF2015 to get 10% off!)
We get 5 damage cards on the middle VSD, but that's all we can muster! Mon Mothma and one other Corvette escape to hyper-space. Ouch! Sean wins by a margin of victory (MoV) of 90 or so.
Conclusion: If Salvation had just not been totally flubbed, I might have had it! That extra dice into the rear would've been huge. I blame my exhaustion from having just returned from Gencon (after a canceled flight in Chicago!). Yeah, that's what it was!
