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.

Star Wars Armada: Painting Hounds Tooth
