After I painted up my fleet for Armada about a year ago, I managed to sneak in a game last weekend. Like any kind of game, there’s always some questions after the first few battles, so here we go:
-According to the ship’s cards, all my Basilean ships have a red turning angle, except for the Gur Panther, which has yellow. I I read the rules correctly, a red turning angle allows for a better turn than a yellow one. In the fluff, the Gur Panther is described as the more nimble ship, so it does not make sense to have the worse turning angle. What am I doing wrong?
-According to the rules, players must avoid collisions where possible. Can I “park” my ships in front of the enemies’ ships in a way that a crash is unavoidable?
-The Basilean Elohi battleship has very few guns for a ship its size and point costs(2H, 1L, 1C broadsides, 1L Front). What is the use of this ship? Especially since 2 gur panthers carry roughly the same armament for fewer points. The Abbess rocks, btw!
Thanks for answering!
