I have Gas (Giant)!!

What's the fun of blowing each other's ships up if you don't have a planet to fight for?  Not a whole lot, that's what!  How can we rectify this?  With a trip to Hobby Lobby!

Is that planet actual size?

Ricky Builds A Table!!

Due to the ridiculous cost of these printed/airbrushed cloth mats, I decided to just run to town and build my own gaming surface!
...And we shall call it... This Land.

Omni-Stands Ordered

Omni-Stands, much like OmniMechs, are the end-all be-all of sturdy and versatile basing solutions for all of your gaming needs.


So we purchased some models and, made some asteroids, pulled out the ole trusty foamcore space mat, and threw down for our first game of Firestorm Armada!

A lot of dice are about to be rolled!

Randy's First Impression of FSA

My brother asked me to write an article on my thoughts regarding this new game that he has discovered, Firestorm Armada. At first I was inclined to roll my eyes and say, "Here we go again."  
Randy Tested.  Randy Approved!

Dindrenzi Ready for Action!

So the fleet is assembled!  Only took a few hours, actually.  I managed to get them cleaned up, washed, and assembled while watching an episode of Castle and then some Firefly.  Now that I think about it, it sounds like I have a man crush on Nathan Fillion.  Well... who doesn't?  Oh well, my wife will understand I hope.

What Comes in the Box?

So I thought I would show everyone what came in my Dindrenzi starter fleet box.  I actually took the time to take one or two pictures with my crappy camera as well!

The Elusive Lava Rock

So my fleet and rule book will be here tomorrow.  I will hopefully be able to pick them up before I have to go to class in the evening.  To get a head start on a little bit of terrain, I decided to use lava rock for asteroids.

Firebase Delta

I never listen to podcasts.  I don't even like the term podcast.  I rate it right up there with the terms "old-timey" and "home-place" in annoyance levels.  HOWEVER, I want to talk about Firebase Delta a little bit, if I may.  You don't mind?  How kind!

The Fleets Are Ordered

Well, I ordered my starter fleets and they should be here by Friday.  Dewayne's World always has it by Friday.  Anyway, what fleets did I choose and why?

Why I Chose Firestorm Armada

I'm writing this blog about Firestorm Armada so I guess its somewhat important to talk about WHY I chose to give it a try.  Short story: who knows these things?  They just happen.

Long story?  Well, you asked for it:

Letter of Intent

Hello Internet!  My name is Ricky and I've recently become very interested in Firestorm Armada.  I've decided to pick up two starter fleets and the rulebook in order to give this game a go.  I've also decided that, for some reason, people out there might be interested in my journey.  My intent is to post up whenever I do pretty much anything with this new game from making a new purchase, assembly, painting, playing, and maybe even making a table to play on.  So if you're interested in the game, I hope this will be a good resource to make your decision on whether or not to play.  If you're not interested in the game, feel free to get a laugh out of my mistakes along the way!  So here we go.
