Event Description

“What of the reports of the Rebel fleet massing near Sullust?”
–Darth Vader

Attention, Star Wars™: Armada Fleet Admirals!

This October, The Massing at Sullust is your chance to get your hands on preview copies of the game’s second wave of expansions and its first large-base ships, the Imperial-class Star Destroyer and MC80 Mon Calamari Star Cruiser!

 

What Is The Massing at Sullust?

FFG’s The Massing at Sullust is a special preview event, showcasing the second wave of Armada starships and squadrons at exclusive preview tournaments taking place the weekend of October 2nd – 4th.  Kingston Gaming Nexus will be running this event on October 4th.

Only a limited number of kits are available, so retailers should apply today. This exclusive event will provide players their first opportunity to see some of the Star Wars galaxy’s most powerful and iconic starships launched into action for the very first time!

How Does It Work?

Each retailer participating in The Massing at Sullust preview event will run an Armada tournament during the weekend of October 2nd – 4th. Players will bring standard 300-point fleets and compete through three Swiss-style rounds, following all the standard rules described in the official Armada Tournament Rules document.

Then after the Swiss rounds, the top two players will confront each other in a final match of epic proportions!

Both players will set aside the fleets that they played throughout the Swiss rounds and will build new, 400-point fleets that utilize the Wave II starships and squadrons. One player will construct an Imperial fleet that includes the Imperial-class Star Destroyer and Raider-class corvette, as well as at least one of the Imperial squadrons from the Rogues and Villains Squadron Pack. The other player will construct a Rebel fleet that includes the MC80 star cruiser and MC30c frigate, as well as one or more of the Rebel squadrons from the Rogues and Villains Squadron Pack. Both players will then be able to complete their 400-point fleets by adding starships, squadrons, upgrades, and objectives drawn from their existing collections, plus those from the Wave II expansions under their command.

Using these newly upgraded fleets, the players will battle for the fate of the galaxy… and the right to take home the Armada Wave II expansion of their choice!

Prizes:

1st Place – First choice of one The Massing at Sullust preview expansion
2nd Place – Second choice of one The Massing at Sullust preview expansion
3rd Place – Third choice of one The Massing at Sullust preview expansion
4th Place – Fourth choice of one The Massing at Sullust preview expansion
Top 16 – One commemorative Imperial II-class Star Destroyer ship card with extended art
NOTE: The Tournament Organizer will receive the fifth, unclaimed The Massing at Sullust preview expansion. Retailers will find the full details on hosting a The Massing at Sullust tournament in the kit’s instructional letter.

Note

Although Kingston Gaming Nexus is expecting a tournament kit, there is a possibility that it will not arrive in time and/or at all.  In this unlikely event, we will be hosting a regular Star Wars Armada tournament.
