I'm about the pull the trigger and buy in...but I have zero experience with this particular system and only a passing familiarity with other miniatures games. (I'm a recent convert to the minis way of thinking/playing!)

The minis look great, but reviews here are scarce. Anyone out there playing? How does it compare to, say, Full Thrust or Starmada: The Admiralty Edition, or even Battle Fleet Gothic for that matter?

Thanks for any feedback or info!

I've got the game but haven't played it yet. The combat system reminds me of Axis and Allies War at Sea.

Firestorm Armada is less complicated than Starmada and about equal in complexity to Full Thrust. It looks fun but I have doubts about the construction system. It allows for cheesey ships. I think Starmada is the best of the three followed by Full Thrust then Firestorm Armada.

Thanks for the feedback. I saw your post on my other thread in Wargames/General. Perhaps I'll order some of the minis but skip the rules implementation of Firestorm Armada.
