Capping the "T"

This post is the first in what I hope will be a series of tactics videos here on the blog.  While it is pretty easy to type about upgrades, admirals, and fleet lists I have struggled to communicate some of the tactical ideas I have wanted to talk about.  I am planning to use the videos to discuss maneuver, deployments, and formations in games of Armada.

Also, as another way to know when I have made a new post here you can follow me on Twitter @MrShmitty.  

Keep reading to see my first video:

In this video I look at basic tactics and the old naval ideal of "Capping the T" and how it relates to Star Wars:Armada.

As depicted in the Rebel Alliance Sourcebook from WEG

There are lots of ways to "Cap the T" in Armada and in the video I go into just a few as well as looking at the limitations of the Line Abreast formation.  Give it a watch and please provide feedback both on the content and how I can make future videos look or sound better.

Thanks for watching!


  1. Thank you Shmitty! Been waiting ages for quality content on formations and maneuvers. Glad you stepped up to fill that void! Keep up the great work.

  2. This is genius thank you! I always found the positioning of people weird in videos (why not just a straight line?) but this explains a lot. Been reading a lot of content on this blog today and love it, keep it up!
