Meet the Writers

Matt "Biggs" Kelsey

Biggs started playing X-Wing sometime in Wave 2 and jumped into Armada when it was released because it was the game he had always wanted to play.  He started writing articles on objectives because he couldn't find any, and has been writing ever since.  When he is not writing or playing Armada / Legion, he can be found working as an ERT at his Hospital's Emergency Department, volunteering with his local Fire Department, climbing to the top of tall things, or playing board games with his friends.  He has won three Store Championships (one with Konstantine), two Regional Championships (and placed 2nd and 3rd at two others), placed top 16th, top 32nd, and made it to Day 2 at Worlds (2016, 2018, and 2019 respectively) and technically showed up for US Nationals (2016 & 2017).

Bryan "shmitty" Schmidt

Shmitty had been keeping his own Armada blog "Concentrate Fire" since shortly after coming in 2nd at GenCon 2015.  After collaborating with Biggs on a couple of projects we decided to go ahead and combine our powers here.  He also runs a YouTube channel that focuses on in game tactics that are hard to describe in the blog.  He is the North American Continental Champion for 2019.

Chris "Truthiness" Fritz

Truthiness started blogging during his first deployment to Afghanistan in 2012, focusing primarily on Warhammer Fantasy. He started getting into Armada after his second deployment, around the same time GW gave their Fantasy players a giant middle finger. He got started with Armada during late wave 1, using Vassal to compensate for being stationed in the middle of nowhere. He has won a number of Store Championships, one Regional Championship, and a US National Championship. When not wasting time on the internet, Truthiness spends all the time the Army allows with his wife and two wonderful children.
