Firestorm Armada?

Postby netgeist » Mon Jun 06, 2016 10:17 pm

Just curious if anyone is playing this. I really like the look of the models and miss having a game that has the scale of Battlefleet Gothic. I just don't want to actually play BFG again.

I know the store carries it. Who plays regularly (or would play regularly) and what factions do you play?

I've never seen a real game of it, but I've checked it out superficially online. I like the look of it.

Armada is a similar scale isn't it? Personally I'd go with DZC Resistance, but if I get into any further space adventure fleet games it will be BFG because Ork ships just rule.
What aims do the Orks have? What is the point of a tornado?

I dig how in a setting where giant, muscled fungus men ride Mad Max cars and use their own teeth as currency, the concept of little engineering dudes with beards was considered a step too far down the aisle of silliness.

Firestorm Armada is functionally Dystopian Wars in space. If you liked DW, you'll like Firestorm Armada. If you didn't, don't bother.
This just goes to show: No matter how stupid and useless a weapon may look to you, some guy in Asia with too much time on his hands has figured out how to use it to kill five ninjas.

That's what I thought, I hated DW.

DW has a lot of appeal to me. DZC doesn't. I'm good with what I have for land battle games, so I am turning my attention to air, sea and pace.
