Fantasy Flight Games is going all out and not only having a special preview for wave II for Star Wars Armada, but they are going to take a weekend to do it! Over the weekend of October 2nd – 4th, Fantasy Flight Games in conjunction with your FLGS will hold special events and a tournament called The Massing at Sullust.
The tournament will be a 300 point list played in three Swiss Style rounds with the top two players being matched up in the championship round. In the this round they will have to build a 400 point list using the new releases from wave II and then round it out with ships from their 300 point lists.
The winner gets their choice of wave II items, second place next choice and fourth place last pick. Honestly, I think this is a win for anyone who plays Star Wars Armada. But, there is a catch (there always is) the Massing at Sullust preview kits are limited in quantity and your retailer better jump on rather quickly or they might just miss out.
The wave II ship will be the Imperial Raider, Imperial Class Star Destroyer, Rouge and Villains squadrons, the MC 80 Star Cruiser and lastly the MC 30c Frigate. The ships look really great and it will be nice to see even bigger ships on the table locked in battle with those from the original release.
We got a peak at the Imperial Class Star Destroyer at Gen Con and it is definitely on my list to pick up.
Look in the coming weeks for my review of Star Wars Armada and hopefully the wave II ships and remember May the Force Be With You!
Have you tried Star Wars Armada yet?
