On August 23rd, I had the pleasure of attending a small Star Wars Armada tournament at Battlegrounds in Richmond, VA. The tournament wasn't hugely attended, but 5 players showed up to pew pew, and that's good enough for me!

I decided to go with a group of three Assault Frigate Mk II Bs. To be honest, I had no idea if the fleet would perform. I have never used Garm, but have seen him used to good effect. I also wasn't sure 3 Assault Frigates would be versatile enough, but I love the ship so I figured I'd give it a go.

Good stuff!

Quick question ... how did the list with 2 Guppies but with A-wings and Y wings do?

I'm sorry, are those Israeli tank decals on one of your guppies?

Kato- I honestly can't remember how Sean did now! Maybe 2nd? I think his first game went well, but I didn't catch his 3rd game.

Throck- Yep! I thought it looked just different enough :)

Unfortunately my opponent canceled, so the "Garm's Guppies" list did not get another work out. :(

Got in a game tonight finally. Garm's Gups survived 137 to 95 in Opening Salvo.

My opponent has a VSD and 3 GSD, one of those as demolished. One kitted out as Demolisher. Screed as Admiral.

I lost one AF and killed 2 GSD, but both of those almost got away. So I'm lucky to have won it. I was really bad at this game. Kept forgetting that I had Enhanced Armaments, fogot to use my Tokens a lot, bumped into my own ships...etc.

I mostly got from this 300pt game that I still have a LOT to learn. My opponent is still pretty new at this game also, and I think a vet would have torn me up!

Garm's Guppies is not an easy "drive itself" list. I know of two others who have taken it to a tournament and not done very well.

I would be one of them!

I don't know the drive itself list. At this point I doubt it exists and we're adding more ships in a little while so it seems it will stay that way.

I played it again tonight in Intel Sweep vs. 2 VSD and 2 GSD all naked with Motti.

Won this one also having got three objectives and KO'd the two GSDs....but... I also ended up driving my flagship off the table edge too! :oops:

I thought I was driving like a pro during turns 1-4 but then looked like a clown circus in 5 & 6. I ended up with two Guppies locked head to head that could not seem to break free of each other and given time would have killed each other off while Garm just sailed off the edge of the universe!

My Imperial Opponent is getting better every game and I'm not improving despite keeping up with the IFF podcast and perusal of the FFG forums. :(

Oh well, at least I'm having fun!

Hell yeah! I'm such a poor planner in these games that I tend to favor navigate commands, for what it's worth; and I think it's harder to successfully control speed 3 ships when you need to plot three commands.
