You have failed me for the last time, Admiral…

Welcome, stranger, to my menagerie of thoughts after the GenCon North American championship. This document is somewhat organized into four sections: list section, game insight, the GenCon batrep, and closing thoughts. With an Admiral whose strength is maneuvering, it will be difficult to describe the small choices in positioning with text. There will be a few pictures along the way to colour your journey.

Part 1: List Selection

To DeMSU or not DeMSU…

This journey begins at the Montreal Regional. At this Regional, I took DeMSU, being the list that I was most confident and successful with. I was expecting a small turnout, which boded well for placing high – possibly even winning the whole thing.

Raiders vs Rieekan

Hot off the heels of the Phoenix Games store championship, the Hobby Kingdom store championship was this past weekend.

Our local Armada playgroup seems to have taken the success of the SMASH list to heart. The Raider seems to have affected the meta significantly, either:
a. try to beat it – utilizing Rieekan or heavy squadrons
b. join it – take Raiders (+OE, Expanded Launchers) and/or Demolisher (+Intel Office, OE, Expanded Launchers, Engine Techs)

Based on the 8 person attendance at this tournament, 2 had taken Rieekan, 2 had modified their Imperial lists to include the SMASH-Raider. I myself decided to try some Rogue squadrons and modified my list to include one solitary Firespray.

Armada Store Championship at A Muse N Games Batrep

I didn’t know what to expect coming into this tournament since I’ve been away working for a number of weeks and I was out of practice. Still,  I managed to get a few days off and decided to attend last minute (with 10 minutes left to register) flying a build close to something I had tried before.

Star Wars Armada: Raider SMASH!!!

I’ve been playing Armada for a couple of months (not getting as many games as I would like) and I’ve been bouncing between different list archetypes in order to best determine what fits my style.   From other miniatures games, I would best describe my style as “mobile, aggressive, and asymmetric”.  Tough order to fill in a relatively new game like Armada.

I’ve tried Ackbar gunlines, Rebel corvette swarms, and squadron heavy builds.  Then I heard rumblings of a potent Imperial build based on Demolisher and some Raiders and on first glance, it looked like a list that fit my style.   So I cobbled together the necessary components and created my own version listed below (thanks to Yik for the Raiders and Jordan for the Expanded Launchers).
