Star Wars Armada Victory class Star Destroyer ship build

In the shipyards of the Empire today we are looking at fitting out our Victory class Star Destroyer for battle.  Using only the cards that come in the expansion pack, and looking at what role she can fulfil in your fleet.
 Here is the build I like for her, with an optional Admiral as well, that you can of course swap in for any other Admiral you may like.
Lets take a closer look.....

The Italians produced propaganda posters during the war as well, and they are not as often seen as the Allies ones, so I thought I would share a few of them with you all......
I love how Italian armour looks, all rivets and flat plates.

Star Wars Imperial Assault Kayn Somos Villain Pack unboxing and reveiw

A Long time ago in a galaxy far far away we looked at Star Wars Imperial Assault from Fantasy Flight Games.  This model pack will replace the card token from The Twin shadows expansion, and add more to your game too, even if you do not have the Twin shadows, you can still get plenty of use from it.


“Only Imperial Stormtroopers are so precise.”
  
–Obi-Wan Kenobi, Star Wars: A New Hope

The white armor of Imperial Stormtroopers is a symbol of the Empire’s might across the galaxy. These highly trained soldiers are the iron fist of the Emperor, crushing dissension and spreading fear everywhere. Some Stormtrooper officers even exceed their soldiers in ruthlessness, and few are more feared than Kayn Somos, the Stormtrooper commander stationed on Tatooine. With the Kayn Somos Villain Pack, you can bring this trooper’s powerful leadership and unforgiving methods to your games of Imperial Assault!

The Kayn Somos Villain Pack offers a sculpted plastic figure of Kayn Somos to replace the token found in the Twin Shadows expansion which is one I don't have. Of course, like other Ally Packs and Villain Packs, this expansion offers far more than a plastic figure. Three new missions expand both the campaign game and the skirmish game, while new Agenda cards, Deployment cards, and Command cards invite you to pursue cunning new tactics in any mission. 

So lets pop it open and take a look.....
