Tabletop fleets?

Postby Demoulius » 08 March 2016, 18:08

Hey all,

I have been contemplating making this post for a while now... Figured id finally go ahead with it :mrgreen:

What kind of TT fleets do people got lying around? Either collection or list that you like playing? Most of the games we played were 1000 points because of some ship restrictions but these were the fleets I was collecting towards, at 1500 pts:

IN
Mars BC, targetting matrix, fleet admiral, 2 RR
2x Lunar Cruisers
Dictator Cruiser
Dominator Cruiser
4 Swords frigates
3 Cobra destroyers
3 Cobra destroyers

Dont got a battleship on that list because GW discontinued them before I could get my hands on one :oops: IN wasent my main fleet but started a few matches before my gaming group fell apart. Never played them bigger then 1000 points though but my main opponent was IN so I had some idea what I wanted in my own fleet :)

Chaos
Repulsive GC, additional shield, more range on lances, chaos warmaster, +1 RR
2 Murder cruisers
2 Devastation cruisers
Hades cruiser
Slaughter cruiser

Have the ships, only ever played chaos twice though and was still getting used to playing them. Could use Styx but dident because we kinda considered double Styx to be a bit cheesy.

Marine fleet (dont recall the actuall list...)
Battlebarge
4 strike cruisers
4 Gladius frigates
4 Hunter destoryers
4 Nova frigates

My main fleet. I think we mostly played 1000 pts as I had trouble reaching 1500 pts (which my IN opponent had no trouble reaching with his heavy carrier fleet) My BB was AWESOME but because my fleet was abit restricted in ship selection the few times I took him along I couldnt support him properly...

The SC's were punching way above their weight though, specialy once we started using the rules that allowed the additional shields :mrgreen: The escorts were also very well worth it. Think I got alot of milage out of them but I always had to pull off some magic tricks to pull out a win!

What fleets were everyone else playing? Im curious :)

This is what I still have, and someday i'll even get round to stripping the terribly painted ones and painting them all :roll:

With an additional shield and half swapping launch bays for more bombardment cannons Strike Cruisers were insanely awesome imo.

Personally I have considerable Chaos and Space Marine Fleets, although similar to the guy above me they both need some work. Never saw as much play as I wanted but if nothing else I liked having them.

Off of memory:

Chaos
Planet Killer
2 Despoilers
1 Desolator
2 Repulsive
17 or 18 cruiser hulls, lot of them Devastation or Carnage/Murders
12 Iconoclasts
1 Blackstone

SM
3 Battlebarges (one a recent resin addition which I plan to make the Venerable variant because it makes a good thing great)
9 SC
several of each SM escort and 6 cobras.

Either fleet can hit 3k, never actually fully added up the Chaos, partially because some cruisers still need weapons glued/magnetized and partially because sheer number of different ways I could upgrade/compose it.

Hmm. Just looked at what I have left the other day. Haven't played in about 10 years, hoping GW licenses FFG's Armada system to re-launch BFG.

Imperial

2 Retribution Battleships
1 Overlord Battlecruiser
2 Gothic Cruisers
1 Tyrant Cruiser
4 Lunar Cruisers

Chaos

Planet-Killer
Desolator Battleship
Repulsive Grand Cruiser
1 Hades Heavy Cruiser
3 Murder/Carnage Cruisers
4 Slaughter Cruisers
2 Idolator Raiders

Looking over the fleets, you can see my play-style (Imperial) and my wife's (Chaos). Neither of us were fans of fighters, I preferred a balanced loadout, her fleet was setup for fast flanking moves while slow-rolling a heavy main force.

A bit offtopic but there will be indeed a relaunch of BFG and other specialist systems like BloodBowl, Necromunda ect.
Because the deal with FantasyFlightGames bursted, GW decided to form a team that will work on all these classic games to bring them back to life.

Oh sweet, fleet pictures! :mrgreen:

Id share my own, but most of them arent painted, and the ones that are look horrid :oops:

Battleships seem to e a pretty reacurring theme. Are you missing out as a player if you dont have a 'focus point' for your fleet?
