While the common joke is that size doesn't matter - sometimes you just need to go big or go home. In Armada, the size of the ship dictates the everything about the ship - the firepower it can bring to bear, the crew strength for boarding actions, the amount of damage it can take before being crippled or sunk (and corresponding, the point cost).
So for those admirals that want something more, Mantic has just released the XL ships for the first wave of Armada.
Let's start off with the Basilean Dictator.

(Ok, as I write this out, I guess these are just the stern, not the poop deck - as that is already the huge cathedral that doesn't change. But then I'm never one to let accuracy spoil a good joke!)

This one is taller than all the others - which means it won't fit in the cases I am using.
- ORH4 & ORH7
- ORH5 & ORH8
- ORH6 & ORH9
Because it is all fun and games . . .
