Predicting the Armada World's Meta

We're a little less than a month out from Worlds. Of the three of us, only Biggs is able to go. So as a dispassionate observer (fine, peanut gallery), I thought I'd take a look at what we might expect in this post-errata meta.

The State of Armada

I'm not sure where I got this picture, but it's a good one.
It feels weird writing this.  When Legion was first coming out, I joked that it was the new hotness and was pushing Armada aside.  Then the jokes started to feel more real.  Locally, we failed to get enough people for our Quarterly Kit for the first time since... 2015?  When Assault Frigates and VSDs were the biggest things you could put on the table, and squadrons were "bad" before some guy ran maximum A-Wings at Worlds.

So where is Armada now?

Ground Commander's Guide - AT-RT


The AT-RT, not exactly the most well known weapon in the arsenal of the Rebel Alliance.  This Clone War era weapon is back and it isn't spectacular, as you might expect from old technology.  This is the Rebel's first Support unit, which you can take up to three in a standard game.  Let's take a look at it and see how it fits into the Rebel's game plan.

Accessorizing Legion

I like games.

I also like to buy shiny accessories for my favorite games.  When I buy a new board game I almost immediately check to see if The Broken Token makes a new insert for it.

So, as I am enjoying the heck out of Star Wars; Legion it seemed like time to get some new accessories for the game.  Some of that has been terrain and I have some posts coming up on my terrain building projects.  Today though I am going to focus on a couple of recent purchases.

Wave 7 Upgrades - Weapons Teams


Only one Weapons Team upgrade card for Wave 7, if you don't count the Boarding Team (Weapons Team + Offensive Retrofit) as well.  Caitken and Shollan will fill an interesting role on a Rebel ship.

Ground Commander's Guide - Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith

We need to talk about the Empire.  I've been doing a good job putting out Rebel units, but there's a whole 'nother group out there just begging to be talked about.  So let's start with the "Wave 0" Commander, the biggest, baddest thing on the battlefield - Darth Vader!

Ground Commander's Guide - T-47 Airspeeder

On to another Ground Commander's Guide for units.  Today we'll be looking at the T-47 Airspeeder, the Rebel's "Heavy" unit from what I'm going to be calling "Wave 0".  Bringing an Airspeeder is a big investment in points, so you're going to want to ensure that it is worth your time to put one onto the battlefield.
