Has anybody found a good way of incorporating some Armada units in the Rebellion game? I would be interested in trying something that added some flavor the the space combat portion of the game.

I remember before release, people threw around ideas of using Armada for space combat and Imperial Assault for ground stuff. I guess we could also use Destiny for leader actions now.

If you want your game to basically play out in realtime over the course of like, 3 years.

Definitely not interested in that.

However, it seems possible to spice up combat a bit with a combat variant that uses Armada units. I'd want something quick (compared to an armada game), but since it would lengthen individual combats substantially, only use it on "big battles"

Seriously though someone needs to make this happen.

In armada do two blockade runners basically equal a SD? does the scaling work? We should make a mega thread for this...

In a nutshell, no. The core set for Armada has a Corvette and a Nebulon B against a Victory-class Star Destroyer (significantly smaller than the iconic Imperial-class) - plus roughly comparable sets of X-Wings and TIE Fighters.
