FFG just pulled the covers off of what we believe is THE game to watch in 2015. Star Wars Armada!
I think we can safely say that the biggest game to shake up the wargaming/miniatures world in 2013, and again this year (so far) was X-Wing. Looking back 2 years ago, it seemed so quaint. A Star Wars dogfighting game from FFG. Then folks got their hands on the rules , the pre-painted minis, the killer license, and the explosion began.
Folks have long been wondering about how exactly FFG would shoehorn the “big boys” into X-Wing, and we have an answer. Get a load of what will perhaps be the next industry hit from FFG:

What we have here is a grand scale fleet action game set in the Star Wars universe. You will be in command of fleets of pre-painted capitol ships, and fighter squadrons, while attempting to achieve various mission goals. They have already mentioned named characters/pilots, and with this being an FFG game, I think we can safely assume that we will be seeing wave after wave of new pre-painted capitol ships to expand your fleet, and probably specialist fighter squadrons (or at least more squadron cards) down the road.
