It is done... the entire core set remade in wood.

Maybe I'll add the same 3 ships as the expansions but for now I'm done with this successful project.

I had help when I needed information and to those peeps I say thank you.

Well I started out trying to recreate x-wing miniatures in a Mini version (50% size)for travel purposes. I even magnetized them so you can play on a white board: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/2927352/star-wars-x-wing-min...

then during the summer holidays I had the idea to recreate the whole game at normal size just to see if I could do it. that was a success:https://redd.it/4zn766

So I thought of doing the same project but then for armada with the added challenge that I do not own a copy of armada. I'd only be using information from the internet.

the effort going into this project by no means justifies preventing me to buy this game so there is no financial reason. that said, I did want to buy the core set since there was no image of the back side of the ship/squadron cards to be found on the internet. I lucked out though and found it somewhere eventually.

Now that the project is done and my challenge is completed, I'm looking to buy the game from someone who does not need it anymore.

I would love to be able to do that! Having the entire game take up a wall board and not need to play it all in one day.
