That's a whole lot of escorts (and a couple of light cruisers...). Although I love it when fleets include escorts, I can't help but feel that you'll struggle against a more cruiser-heavy fleet.

I also wouldn't blow 75 points on 2 extra re-rolls in such a small game.

I dropped couple of Escorts and 1 Re-roll. With the points I added third Dauntless.

Sounds good. Very interesting fleet, still. Let us know how it works out!

It looks alright. I would concentrate on getting close. I built a fleet that has even more escorts, no battleship.

I rarely use battleships, but since painting the fleet in few days it's good to use those that allready painted... And that +1Ld and many fighters give a good support.

M'kay, time to paint then... Thanks

Darn, it seems that I have misplaced my 2 Lunars... I hope that the following does do the job. I allready edited the list. I added Overlord and Gothic and removed both Lunars and 2 Cobras... Would this work?

Well since the emperor is now 365 points base I guess you will be using the old rules for the tourney?
I'd probably run two if not all of my dauntlesses with torpedoes, same range/arc as lances, but double the strength and ignores shields. Other than that looks like an interesting fleet to play against/with.

Since the new rules will be presented to the players at the store before the game I'll be taking some other optional models along and re-calculate the points when I see the new points of cost.

I got to play only one 1500p game with following vessels: Emperor w. AB, Lunar, Lunar w. prow Nova, 3 Dauntless, 2x4 Cobras and 3 Swords.

Againts another Imperial Fleet with Retribution, Dictator, Mars and 2x Gothic.

The game went allover the place. At deployment my wings where spread and he had his clustered to the centre. One good hit with Nova and then to close as enemy divided his fleet cluster in two. I got to out-manover him for starters but when closing the end of the battle his superior shooting give him the advantage. When ending the game the both battleships where circling around a dustcloud without the speed or firepower to destroy each other. Both where at full HP.

I was hoping to get more games with this list but there wasn't any time for this big of game. We did have 2 eldars vs. 2 imperial with 800p each. Imperial Fleet where destroyed.

Last game, 850p, versus Necron. Powering trough game as we didn't have that much time left to play. Necrons got 2 Harvesters, some light cruiser and 3 escorts. I had Empreror, 3 Dautless, 2 Cobras and 3 Swords. I won. Harvesters where peppered with weapons batterys and fially rammed with two Dautless taking out one. Emperor also peppered all around with Swords. They and some torpedoes from cobras took out Necron lighter and assault boats destroying the necron escorts.

Last game was nice, only if I had more time to make it more interesting...
