Star Wars: Armada

One thing for certain though, with FFG keeping their info so close to their vest, there is no way I'm buying more than one until I start to see what else they have planned down the line.
X-Wing makes them tons of $'s, so I don't see them stopping with that anytime soon. And the tourney scene is just getting stronger.
But perhaps they do stop and just let XWing lay and then extend the license with Wizkids and just cash checks as Wizkids continues to pump out Star Trek and soon D&D.
No way they stop expanding X-Wing. I think X-Wing will still be more popular than Armada. You can play a 100 point X-Wing tournament match in 30-60 minutes. FFG estimates Armada taking 2 hours, which will limit its tournament appeal.
Armada is also much more expensive to get into, which will factor somewhat into its popularity. I think this will, of course, rake in the money for them though. They're looking to wholesale steal the Attack Wing community, grab a solid number of X-wing players who will fork out the cash for both, and grab a few people who stayed away from X-Wing but will like the idea of Capital Ships more. I see Attack Wing suffering much more so than X-wing.
That said, I'm rapidly reaching my limit in Star Wars/FFG expenditures, regardless. I haven't even picked up any Wave 4 of X-Wing yet because I just don't play often enough. Throwing down another $100 (or $70 Amazon equivalent to legal tender) for an expanding miniatures game is just a bit too close to old habits for me. I think I'm done here, no matter how cool it looks (and it does.)
Has anyone bitched about the scale between the caps and fighters yet on BGG, the game has been announced now for about two hours, it's overdue.

The official answer is 41 minutes. Between earliest post on BGG to the first comment on scale.
Surprisingly there isn't a whole lot of buzz that I'm seeing. A lot of "expensive" and "I already play XWing".
