Considering getting into Armada using KoM fleet

partly because i have an order i’m going to place at Warlord Games before long, and the Black Seas Frigates and Brigs set is one of the freebies you can pick from when using their compensation program for overseas shipping.
haven’t bought the armada rulebook yet (why is a PDF $40?) but have been playing around with the easyarmy site, equipping various things to see the mechanics.

I like to have a plan to build to, so what would you suggest in terms of fleet build to use the 2 Frigates and 4 Brigs the set comes with, and what ships i should look at to expand it?

also any upgrades i should try to add?

first ships to expand would be either a 1st rate or a box of 3rd rates

if you are into conversions you can use 2 of the Brigs to make another Frigate and 1 small ship or modify the other ones for a more fantasy feeling

but for the first game to see the mechanics the 6 ships are enough (as well as the rules summery sheet that is for free)

I guess this blog post may help you to start with the KoM fleet.

getting a 3rd rate box seems to be the common response between here and the mantic discord. any idea if mantic is going to run a sale on the rulebook anytime soon?
