I know that there are already loads of topics with simiular titles, but mine is a specialised question. I'm getting the rulebook and a starting imperial force. Does anyone have a good suggestion for an imperial starting force that wont break the bank.

Thank you.

This isn't exactly a specialised question actually.

Having just started myself, I'd suggest getting 4 Thunderbolts, then a Marauder Destroyer. If you'd like, you could also get two Valkyries for those missions that require you to drop troops.

if you can afford it, also get 2 lightnings, they are the only very high maneuvarability fighter craft for the imperials (not counting the valkyries).

I play Imperial Navy. I've got 4 Thunderbolts, 2 Lightnings and 1 Marauder Destroyer, and they're about all I need for the game sizes that I tend to play with my friends who play AI.

4 Thunderbolts, 2 Lightnings, and a Marauder Destroyer will set you back 46 (plus postage).

I started out with 8 Thunderbolts (more then needed, but the Thunderbolt is the epitone Imperial fighter), I'm now adding bombers to that, has worked for me.

AnkhAngel- same, plus some hydra emplacements and some valkyries for transport missions but they arent used much. later down the line i bought a thunderhawk. It's a good start.

We must have identicle forces :p

I concur about AnkhAngels starter- I would drop the Marauder first if you are low on funds.
