It's a perfectly solid list. In fact, it's nearly identical to my list

You might want to check out the Craftworld Eldar fleet, which is very similar but probably easier for an inexperience player to succeed with, since it's substantially more resilient. It'll also help differentiate our fleets.

I don't see no battleship on your list .

In fact, I was debating either running CW Eldar or mixing them in as reserves to the Corsairs list. I might look into it, but not sure yet. If I fill out my list with more escort squadrons and/or split those current squadrons in half, I will be running a much more escort heavy list than you .

Also, I mentioned it after you replied, but the 2010 FAQ drops the price of Hellebores and Aconites by 10 each so, if it's applicable, that's 40 more points to spend.

Space Hulks are pretty good too by the way, I really wouldn't underestimate them.

Also Chaos Space Hulks are also a thing, but I'm assuming that crashing a Chaos Space Hulk into a planet World Eaters style isn't the same as the Ork thing?

Yeah, I wanted to give the Orks a suitably Orky way of invading planets.

Heh, we might need a bigger map if we get many more applicants. Thirteen planets between 7 players is going to be a bloodbath.

I'm going to set a deadline of Monday since we've a good variety of people. If you want to play, just post. You don't need a list by the deadline, I just need to know how many people to make the map for.

Still debating what to spend the last 260 pts on, but looking for review of current selection by someone experienced if they want to. Trying to make sure I haven't screwed myself over or something. I'll do leadership rolls later tonight.

Current thoughts for finalizing are either another Cruiser, 2 Solaris Light Cruisers, or a squadron(s) of Nightshades and/or a light cruiser.

Also, are we using the full 2010 FAQ? Looking it over, they've dropped the price of Hellebores and Aconites by 10 each(65 & 55 now respectively). List does not currently take that into account.

By my understanding from previous posts you don't actually buy an Admiral in campaign games, you just start with a base one for your race. So you have another 150 points, but he's currently LD+0, 1 re-roll.

Also you're a filthy, filthy liar, as you only have one variant of the Torture, but that's only proper for a DE player.

Is it true that Necrons are boring and crap? If I had the time currently to be able to get in on this I was looking at Necrons, but not if they're a boring side.

chin up everything sucks
Jan 29, 2012



Necron Pros: Hard to kill (6+ armor all sides on every ship), VERY fast and maneuverable (All Ahead Full distance is d6 * 10 cm instead of 4d6 cm, with a turn every 20 cm), they hit hard, and each ship gets a save against damage.
Necron Cons: No shields, no ordinance. Expensive ships that are hard to replace. Leadership lost from crits can't be repaired, so in a campaign you have to balance leadership gain from experience with losses from damage. Lances and assault shuttles are your worst nightmare.

In a one on one fight, necrons tend to own most enemies because they can almost always All Ahead Full out of the way of ordinance, or into the rear arc of enemy capital ships. The loss of leadership from most crits means in a campaign, you need to play conservatively or you will rapidly be unable to do anything with your capital ships. That said, you will be crippling fleets left and right until you can't pass order tests to save your life.

Necrons are boring and either broken or near-broken depending on who you ask. The Imperial Navy (and related factions), Tau, and Eldar are almost incapable of fighting them, since they neutralize most or all of their advantages. Chaos and Orks fare better, but still are likely to take really heavy damage unless the Necron player is a complete fuckup. Tyranids and Space Marines are the only factions that can fight them on more-or-less equal grounds, and even then that's only if the Necron player is a good sport and didn't bring double or triple battleships.

I'd suggest a Chaos Space Marine list if you want something that plays pretty similar without being so boring and awful. They're not quiet as tanky or fast, but they're vicious in close combat. Slaanesh and Khorne in particular are very good.

New campaign map!

Imperial players start on any sub-sector capital (any planet with a Primus in the name), except Admech, who can choose to start on a forge world.
Tau, Tyranid, and Ork players start at a border system of their choice.
Eldar and Dark Eldar players choose any system to host a Webway gate (counts as pirate base).
Necron players start on any uninhabited world.
Chaos players can choose to start on any border world or the Acheron Rift.

Acheron Rift

A minor but stable warp rift. Chaos, Ork and Dark Eldar players can jump to and from it as though direct jumping from a normal system. All other races treat it as jumping to or from a system engulfed by a warpstorm. Further, Chaos, Ork and Dark Eldar players treat it as a Forge World; all others treat it as uninhabited (Imperial players get the bonus as normal; occupying a den of scum and villainy is good for sector commerce).

Also, I'd like to ask two things from people. One, do you want a new thread for the campaign proper? And two, can everyone post their timezones? I am GMT+1.

GMT, and aside from this week I'm pretty flexible about my hours. I don't know what goes into a separate thread but I don't mind it.

US Eastern(GMT -6) here. Should generally be available starting in the early evening during the week, or during the day on Sunday. Earlier during the week might be possible for the time being too. Saturdays are irregular and I'd need to know well beforehand.

Since I've not used VASSAL or played BFG before, will probably want to get some practice games in first. Should be on #battlefleetgothic tonight if someone wants to arrange something. Maybe either Cruiser Clash or just an open game with cruisers and escorts?
