Re: Battlefleet Gothic - Numbers to be changed.

Nice thread. I don't think the actual weapon layouts should be changed up from tabletop. The setup in TT was very solid in my opinion, and the issue with it translating to Armada has less to do with weapon placement and more to do with the game's pacing. The very cool way that chaos and imperials we...

Re: Another Review from a Tabletop Vet

Hmm, had another thought I wanted to bounce around. As far as ship upgrades go, I'd obviously like them to cost points. But then it hit me that weapon upgrades as is, really encourage the taking of single-weapon ships. A Gothic, for example, can heavily benefit from lance upgrades. A Tyrant benefits...

Re: Eldar vs nova cannon

Shouldn't be too bad. I think the Lunar is a really solid ship!

Nova cannons are presently just about the only weapon that can actually harm Eldar, but they certainly have the tools to dodge it. Hit tac cog as soon as you see the red circles, and either boost out of the way or do a 180 and bail.

Re: Necron Implementation Thread

I'm not sure how Necrons could be added to the game. As much as I want things to stay true to the tabletop, the way Necrons were "balanced" on the board doesn't jive well with an online RTS. Essentially, Necrons were horridly overpowered individually. Their ships were made out of invulnera...

I'd really like to see all the factions viable and useful and whatever. That's not where we're heading unfortunately. This game will have me checking out the mobile TT version though.


I wasn't aware there was such a thing. I'll play the hell out of that.

Re: Another Review from a Tabletop Vet

This thread nails it. It really, really does man. I've it three times now, and this guy's right on point. Hey duck_bird, I've been thinking to myself lately, but if custom games comes out and it has the ability to play without any upgrades, abilities, skills or crew, how different do you think the ...

Re: Another Review from a Tabletop Vet

Awesome, glad to see folks agree for the most part. Again I want to stress how badly I want this game to be great! I LOVE space games and have played them all. Strategic battles are my favorite part of that. And I love warhammer/BFG to boot. So this game has the potential to be the PERFECT game for ...

Another Review from a Tabletop Vet

Hey folks, Alrighty so I'm going to preface this with a disclaimer. I've seen that y'all are something of a touchy bunch, so I'm going to say up front that this is all my opinions and preferences from the game. I really really want this game to succeed and be good. I grew up playing both warhammers ...
