Star Wars Armada/X-Wing

Has anyone checked these miniature games out? Armada should be out soon, which I think I might buy a few of, but X-Wing has been tempting me a lot here lately. I'm a fan of capital ships and appropriate scale, and Armada seems to be doing a decent job on keep relative scale between the fighters and capital ships.

I think both look fun to play, but I'd be more inclined to collect them like I did the WOTC miniatures than sit down and do the game.

Have not collected any of this stuff (save for some WOTC minis I bought for my son at a collector shop a few years ago).

The details and all that are always amazing - I don't see how they can paint stuff so well, yet Hasbro paint schemes often look so weak by comparison.

:wink:

I know, considering the large ships are about $20 and come with a boat load of extra items like cards, tokens, etc. I feel they're a really good deal for a nice model.

I still haven't bought any of these, but am still very tempted to do so!

Has anyone checked these out yet? My friend Matt asked me if I'd be willing to go in on half of an Armada core set (Around $65) with him, which surprised me because not only have neither of us table top gamed, but he is also brand new to Star Wars. I think we've decided to purchase a core set, as well as a few extra capital ships and fighter packs.

I saw over on RS they're also planning a Gozanti for the X-Wing scale game. That's by far one of my favorite ship designs, so I might just have to get that...

If they look that nice in person like the older stuff.. I'd buy what I wanted and sell off all the game stuff.

I've heard about a few people actually going that. The fighters and large vehicles, like the Outrider and Falcon are decent replacements for titanium and action fleet scale items. If I had enough money/space I'd honestly probably buy this entire line. :!:

Both of these games have some awesome minis - but some are more like models, a bit too big for my tastes - not to mention pricey. I have all the WOTC / SSB mini ships, but never got into these. I'm hoping the MM / Titanium lines cover all these ships as well. A Rebels Gozanti in the Titanium line would be great.

I used to do the WOTC minis as well, and that is honestly one thing holding me back on this line. I have several capital ships from the Star Ship Battles line, and I'd feel like I was repurchasing the same items. I know these items have much better paint apps and the scale is more to my liking (though still pretty relative)...

Well, unexpectedly my mom offered to purchase me something online, so I ended up ordering the core set, and a few other ships. By chance I checked CoolStuffInc yesterday, and they were running a 24 sale on the core set for $55, so that was really nice! I'm really stoked to play this game now!

I received the shipment a few days ago, and my sister and I played a game since I went back home this weekend. We used basic rules, but it was a pretty darn cool game. I can't wait to pick up more of these!

Coolstuffinc.com dropped the core set to $50 yesterday, so I ended up ordering a second one. I was about to spend $27 on a second Star Destroyer, so I might as well go big or go home...
