The Rebel fleet is massing near Sullust.
I might have a miniature collection problem.
Here is the fleet, based around an MC80 crusier. Two MC30c frigates and an Assault Frigate add to the backbone of the fleet, while a pair of Nebulon-Bs and a trio of CR90s round out the capital ships.
The squadron support is provided by the four X-wing squadrons from the base game plus one copy of the Rebel Fighter Squadrons expansion (two more of each: X-wings, A-wings, B-wings, Y-wings) and the Rebel half of the Rogues and Villains expansion (Han Solo in Millennium Falcon, Dash Rendar in Outrider, Jan Ors in Moldy Crow, and someone named Nym in something named Havoc).
I really didn't like the look-and-feel of the Assault Frigate Mk. II (seems like a space dolphin, or something), but I was won over by the hordes of people claiming it is a great game piece. The shape is growing on me, no doubt. I love having a bunch of these ships at two different scales (X-Wing and Armada).
