Thread: Post youre Fleet(s)

    Re: Post youre Fleet(s)

    we agreed we would use book of nemesis amongst ourselves so the officialness isnt really a problem.

    been without the internet for quite a while so kindve missed the 2010faq, knew about it but didnt have a copy. just downloaded it and will give it a read. maybe any ships i like will be added to the battle fleet.

    what do people think of my battle fleet regarding the balance of battle ships/cruisers/escorts etc, the other half has pretty much the same balance, should we have more escorts or more battle ships etc what do people think a sectors battle fleet would contain?

    regarding the oppressor, how much should an upgrade of lances to 45cm from 30cm cost? i figured if its 10 points to upgrade fp 6 30 cm wb to 45cm then lances being more effective at range deserved around an extra 5 points to make 15? should i go with 20 points?

    the centurion ship is built with 3 lances because it looked cool, hadnt really thought about the crippled/brace thing, will probably put in its rules that it goes down to 1 rather than 2 if i go with the long range variant or leave it at only going down to 2 if i go with the 30cm version, the rules are still up in the air at the moment.

    thanks for the input, much appreciated

    The Tyrant is +10 pts for upgrading str8 wb from 30-45cm
    At 30cm 1 lance = 3 wb. So you're 4 lance equals 12wb @ 30cm. So +4wb to the Tyrants 8wb = +10+5 = +15pts
    So far correct. However: above 30cm lances become more valuable then wb's as latter have a right shift. I would value this at +5pts.
    So in total the cost would be +20pts for the lances to see their ranges upgraded.

    the centurion ship is built with 3 lances because it looked cool, hadnt really thought about the crippled/brace thing, will probably put in its rules that it goes down to 1 rather than 2 if i go with the long range variant or leave it at only going down to 2 if i go with the 30cm version, the rules are still up in the air at the moment.
    If you word it nicely go with it

    Re: Post youre Fleet(s)

    i might be being stupid but when does a tyrant have str8 wb? it upgrades its str6 wb to 45cm making it str10 at 45cm.
    my reasoning is to upgrade a str6 wb from 30cm to 45cm costs 10 points.
    at 30cm str6 wb = 2 lances
    add 10 points to upgrade to 45cm
    then i added half the upgrade again due to lances>wb at ranges over 30cm
    is the upgrade from 30cm to 45cm for lances really worth double the upgrade of equivalent weapons batteries? i have no problem paying the points if they are, i am simply confused by the above post
    thanks again, sorry if i seem ungrateful, i am just dumb

    I dont think you should compare that ship with the tyrant. Its a diffrent situation. 15 Points seem ok to me. Even tho I doubt I would use this model in a fleet because for me it would be to expensive for a cruiser.

    Re: Post youre Fleet(s)

    Oppressor is fine at 235 your paying 15 points to upgrade one hardpoint which only costs 10 points for weapons batteries. Given that its a pretty pointless upgrade on a ship you want to close with inorder to take advantage of the torp/ac synergy id say 15 points is even pushing too much.

    As for Dr Frankenstines 3 lance ship i think i would run it as an early battlecruiser prototype trying to build off the older grand cruisers. Keep the stats as is 220 points 1 per 2 cruisers and no funny math when crippled.

    Re: Post youre Fleet(s)

    Yes, it should be measured with the Tyrant. You look into the Imperial Fleet asset and need to balance it.

    @ Radu,
    no worries

    The Tyrant does not have str8wb but it can upgrade 8 of its 30cm weapon batteries to 45cm. (4 per side). After the upgrade it has 20wb @ 45 in total, 10 per side.

    ' kay.
    So we can upgrade 8weapon batteries on the Tyrant from 30cm to 45cm for 10pts.

    Your ship has 2 lances per side is 4 in total at 30cm
    In wb this would equal 4lances x3 = 12 weapon batteries

    Now you want to extend range as well:
    If 8 wb = +10pts to do so then 12wb = 150% of 8wb = +15pts (10 + 5 additional)

    Then we add in the effect that lances are more worth then 3wb at 45cm* due the fact they have no right shift they should pay a little more -> +5pts

    5pts + 15pts = 20pts extra for the range upgrade of the lances.

    *
    @ 30cm 1 lance = 3 weapon batteries
    @ 45cm 1 lance > 3 weapon batteries

    Re: Post youre Fleet(s)

    sorry to be a pain but i have reworked your post armed with the fact that the upgrade that costs 10 points on a tyrant is for upgrading str6 batteries not str4.

    @ Radu,
    no worries

    The Tyrant does not have str8wb but it can upgrade 12 of its 30cm weapon batteries to 45cm. (6 per side). After the upgrade it has 20wb @ 45 in total, 10 per side.

    @ 45cm 1 lance > 3 weapon batteries
    if it was str4 then i could see where you are coming from and see where the confusion/disagreement arises. do you follow my reasoning and accept 15points? as i say i am not too bothered about the points value of the ship but do want it to be priced consistantly. hopefully thats all sorted now

    andrewchristlieb
    if i go down that route i would need to add cruisers to my fleet as currently there are just enough cruisers to allow the battle cruisers. i might go with only 1 Dr. F's centurion per fleet rather than any other limits. i am fine with down grading it to 1 lance when halved as a weakness, i dont want it to look like its designed to bend or get around rules to give an unfair advantage. thanks for an idea of the pricing, as i havent finalised the rules i havent really considered the points yet.

    right, sorry for hijacking the thread, on with the fleet pics everyone!

    haha, lol Facepalm.
    Even veterans need to look things up.

    You are correct, it is 6wb that goes from 30 to 45 on the Tyrant.
    Ya, 15pts is thus sensible.

    So yes, I used escort ships from GZG and some OLD school escorts that I got off eBay to give them some originality. I fanyone is interested I will post up my new style fleet at some point.
    Keep posting your fleets everyone!

    P.S. How the flip do you post the actual pictures rather than attachments? It keeps coming back with an error

    It's a shame nobody has posted pictures of their Tyranid fleet yet, I'm always thirsty for some conversion inspiration and the like.

    I've got 4,500 of Imperial Navy, running as a Bastion Fleet. It just keeps growing somehow, from a 1500pt cruiser gunline into a small Sector Battlefleet with 37 ships on the roster ranging from a Battleship right down to little escort carriers.
    I also have around 1500pts of Orks that need basing because I am lazy. They only really get to play when I am up against another ordnance heavy fleet (Terror Ships + Gorbag's Revenge = Fighta-bomma heaven!).
