Mordian Frontier Fleet 1000p

Option A

Fleet Admiral Athens Calhaan 75p
- 1 extra Re-roll +25p

Emperor Class Battleship 370p
- Assault Boats +5p

3x Dauntless Class Light Cruiser 330p

3x Sword Class Frigate 105p

4x Cobra Class Destroyer 120p

The Battleship does suc-up majority of the points, but I think it will give me some defence against Eldar. I would change it to Vegenance if I had one, but since not I have to use this behemoth that can't even turn on light fire.

Here's a option B.

Fleet Admiral Athens Calhaan 75p
- 1 extra Re-roll +25p

Mars Class Battlecruiser 290p
- Salvaged Tau Targetin Array (left column sift) +15p
- Power Ram +5p

Lunar Class Cruiser 205p
- Prow Nova Cannon +20p
- Power Ram +5p

2x Dauntless Class Light Cruiser 220p
- Lance

3x Sword Class Frigate - 105p

3x Falchion Class Escort - 105p

The Power Ram's are just something to fil the left over points.

What do you think? The tournament is Good vs. Bad, but I think both lists can do well...

What is this power ram upgrade i keep hearing about.

I'd go with the second option, generally. Pumping all your points into a battleship is usually a bad idea.

What is this power ram upgrade i keep hearing about.

It's an upgrade for imperial vessels included in the BFG Errata document available on the Specialist Games site. Page 7, last bullet under "Imperial, Space Marine, and Chaos Fleets." It essentially allows you to make that little ram bit on the prow of imperial cruisers have an in-game effect when ramming other ships.

Though now that you mention it, I don't think Mars-class battlecruisers can take it. It's an upgrade for the regular prow ram, and Mars don't have prow rams - they have the nova cannon instead.

i like option A

a battleship is a bit over the top for 1k but i actually like it in your list.
i love dauntless and 3 to accompany your BB seems fitting

In the new 1.5 book all imperial ships that have 6+ prow armor can take power ram. Also I will change the the list a bit...

Fleet Admiral Athens Calhaan 75p
- 1 extra Re-roll +25p

Mars Class Battlecruiser 285p
- Salvaged Tau Targetin Array (left column sift) +15p


Lunar Class Cruiser 185p
- Power Ram +5p

2x Dauntless Class Light Cruiser 220p
- Lance

3x Sword Class Frigate - 105p

2x Falchion Class Escort - 70p

2x Cobra Class Destroyer - 60p
- Weapon battery changed to Long Range Recon Gear

I noticed that having Long Range Gear on Cobras and keeping them hidden, not only they will give more Ld for the fleet as specially now when there's no Emperor to boost it, but also they will draw more attention away from rest of the fleet and maybe lower the change of enemy making Speacial Orders.

The 1.5 rulebook says that ships with "6+ prow Armor and a prow ram" may have a power ram, but never explain what a prow ram is. Fortunately we know, and BFG as a specialist game is never subjected to the ridiculous RAW/Rulz Lawyerin' that core games are.

Are you sure the Cobra sensor options affect the whole fleet? I took it to mean only the cobras themselves got the bonus, but it doesn't say either way. Unfortunately, being a specialist game also means BFG's ambiguities go unanswered oftentimes.

Well, I'll take ships for both lists. I think I will leave the battleship off from this one. I will ask the tournament leader what is what and based on the answers I'll take the ships...
