I would say that it is so great to look with. And even this could be excited when play.

I've started Armada, and am really enjoying it.
I was skeptical at first; the box set plays at 180 pts which frankly is too small for a game like that, but it's grown into a far better, more interesting game since then.

My new Imperial Star Destroyer arrives next week!

Starter set is indeed just that: nice for a quick intro game but that's about it. Game feels much better at the 400points mark, with several large/medium/small ships and some squadrons per side - actually having that variety of ships since Wave II helps too of course.

Last game I used an Imperial SD and two Victory SDs. It looked glorious. (And worked well too, even those shifty corvettes couldn't escape all front arcs, and once you have those in your sights, with some modifiers from upgrades... *boom* Rebel fish-frigates can take more of a beating, but their size and speed meant they found themselves in two front arcs at once *BOOM*)
