"Armada-Assault Fleet is a new space based tactical miniatures game that fully incorporates the third dimension of movement, which has eluded most other tactical games. The rules system has been created to allow players of all experience levels in any type of game to enjoy Armada, by adding or removing certain aspects of the rules to increase or decrease the complexity of play. It also revolves around the use of large scaled miniatures and fully adjustable stands. These help to visually represent the maneuvers that the vessels are making and helps give a better feel of scale; when you place your 2" long single-manned interceptor next to the 14" long escort frigate.

Included with the book is a set of scale vessel counters, a set of folded vessel models and 2- 10x15 space grid maps. Plastic molded models, stands, and additional space grid maps can be purchased separately

While playing Armada-Assault Fleet, you are able to take control of the forces that take part in the struggles between a futuristic earth-esque world and its’ colonies in space. Do you wish to be a member of the Federated World, as they attack the insolent Colonial Expanse? Do you feel for the Colonies and help them defend against the oppressive Federated forces? Are you a simple Pirate just trying to meek out a living on the backs of the hard working space freighters? Or are you a spawn of the Alien Incursion, which has just invaded the region of space that the Federated Alliance thought was theirs alone?"

10/18/2003 - The guys from Happy Nebula had a display of this game in the dealers room at GenCon.  I was able to talk to the designer about it quickly but I never had a chance to get back and get more details.  Here are my pics from GenCon (click for larger versions).

Armada: Assault Fleet will be a 3D game using a unique stand to show the ships in a variety of positions as it can rotate or dive.  The game board in unique in that ships can have one of 8 different facings.  It was stated that they hope for a GenCon 2004 release.
