Good morning!

I recently got into Armada and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation or suggestion on where I can find 'ship dash boards'?

The sort of holder for the ship, tokens, dials when playing the game, not for game storage.

I have seen some for X-Wing, but not for Armada.

Does anyone know of anything like this for Armada?

Thanks!

I haven't tried this myself yet, but it looks really cool:

Nice to hear! :-)

And I have to admit "Dash Board" sounds way cooler than "Card Holder". Is this a valid and (better?) fitting english phrase for those things?

Dashboard gets used here a lot for anything that displays all the relevant data and metrics in one place.

(Similar to the multiple dials/gauges/displays on a car dashboard)

So, yes, it's a tidy word for a card holder that holds all the various info and pieces (ship, upgrades, tokens, etc...)

I use these:



Armada Ship & Squadron Dashboard files

The design is based on a design another player did and posted to one of the 3D modeling sites. I took his ideas, used some other people's ideas too, and created my own dashboards. They work great. The latest version allows for 8 mini cards on the ship dashboard, by overlapping images (but not text). In some rare cases you may need this, and the change in design really doesn't change anything in looks if you use 6 or less cards.

Who? Me?

Yeah, I can do that. What format do they need to be in?

EDIT: I posted STL files. They should become available soon-ish (up to the admins on this site)
