Haven't got that far just yet. ;) Some of my fleet is waiting for payment in the local hobby store though, so some parts might be off. It think it was like this though:

Crusiers

Eclipse Crusier 250 pts

Eclipse Crusier 250 pts
Escorts

2 Hellebore Class Frigates 150 pts

2 Hemlock Class Destroyers 80 pts

2 Hemlock Class Destroyers 80 pts

2 Hemlock Class Destroyers 80 pts

Nets a nice 890 pts, so with a Pirate Prince I can play 1000 pts battles. I don't like the fact that there are no Escort Carriers, as torpedoes is pretty bad IMO. Main enemies are Necrons and Imperial Fleet, so that will perhaps explain the massive use of Pulsar Lances. Deadly when on Lock On. :evilgrin:

Will be naming and repainting some pretty soon.

If you're ever thinking of expanding your fleet, a Shadow Class Cruiser or two wouldn't hurt. They are deadly!

Personnaly, I'm not that big a fan of the Hellebore. It's expansive, and it's WBs are puny, even when in large squadrons. I don't understand why all you Eldar players are so obssessed with it. Give me a couple of Aconites anyday (you can probably tell that the Sword class is my favorite IN escort :) )!

On Eldar torpedoes: they are DEADLY! They are hard to shoot down, and they reroll to hit! Combined with the speed and agility of the ships who carry them, what is not to like?

EDIT: 2 Hellebores would be 150 pts, not 250.

They are? I've only read about them, but everyone have said that they're overpriced.

Lances are invaluable for the Eldar, but I thought is was the Hemlock Eldar were obsessing over. That one is really worth its points.

That they can't turn. You have to get into practically point blank range with them. Or perhaps I'm just not getting it.

Sorry, typo. Still a thousand point fleet though.;)

That's possible, but a lot of stuff is in BFG (the Styx pops to mind right away). But being overpriced doesn't make it not deadly!

I guess you have a point there. I think I'm just obsessed with weapon batteries :p. But that's understandable, considering I FIGHT Eldar, not PLAY them! ;)


That they can't turn. You have to get into practically point blank range with them. Or perhaps I'm just not getting it.

You may have a point. I keep forgetting that Eldar are about as resilient as wet toilet paper. Still, if you play your cards right, you could Move, Shoot your torpedoes, then Move out of range again. This is where Nightshades really shine. Plus, you can always use them as "fleet breakers", just like IN torpedoes; you'll just be more successful, since they are better then regular torps.

Yep, I forgot to count before posting. ;)

That's a possiblity, although considering that I've only fought a 750 pts battle versus three Imperial Crusiers at most, I haven't needed that. Though his two Novae made me close fast.

Well, you shouldn't have to worry too much about novas, as your holofields are proof against them. Still, better safe than sorry! :)

As for the torpedo trick, yeah, they would indeed be more useful in larger engagements, as the possibility of hitting multiple ships with a wave is what makes it such a sweet deal; not likely to happen when all you're facing is 3 cruisers.

I know, it's just quite a bit irritating when they can shoot me and I can't shoot back.

I swear by my Eagle Bombers though. Bypassing shields, re-rolling attacks and hitting crusiers on 5+ is just wonderful. Especially at point blank when the opponent can't react to the threat.

this is a thread i have been looking for esp since i have gotten a decent deal on some BFG, i dont have the rules all DL yet from specialist games but here is what i have bought so far:
Eldar
1 void stalker box
1 elipse cruiser blister
2 blisters of Dragonships
2 blisters of Wraithships
1 blister Nightshade Destroyers
2 blisters Shadow Hunters
2 blisters Aconite Frigates

can the eldar and craftworld eldar ships be mix? and this is all he had in stock for eldar. what kind of ordnance mines or whatever should i need? i was planning on buying the other ships that i dont have. i play several different eldar armies in 40K and plan on getting an eldar epic force together eventually. i dont really mind having the extra ships, it after all part of the collection as well.

as for space marines (i have an epic and 40K force of these as well.)
1 Battlebarge box
2 Strike Craft blisters
2 Hunter Class blisters
2 Nova Class blisters
2 Gladius Class blisters

same with the ordnance question here as well. the thunderhawk upgrade i did read a little on. what are anythought on those and would i need mines or whatever and approximately how many blister?

what are the most common types of terrain used for BFG and what are the ideal planet and moon sizes to use?

thanks

I believe it's only possible if you use Flame of Asuryan. (Yriel's flagship) Otherwise it's impossible, I'm afraid.

I have found that terrain isn't really that important for a fun game, and I'm doubting that gravity wells will add anything worth the effort. (At least for the Eldar:evilgrin: )

I haven't tried my full Space Marine fleet yet. It turns out Space Marines are much more difficult to play in BFG than the Imperial Navy. Or maybe I'm just playing them wrong. Their strike cruisers can't take any amount of lances, but because of their low range weaponry, I have to go toe to toe with enemy gunboats. How do you guys find the Space Marines? Can you win with them without seriously outmaneuvering your opponent and ending up behind him?

Haven't played them, but I hear that they are indeed hard to play in fleet engagements. However, they are supposed to fair pretty well in planetary assaults.

Hey! You can't have it all!


I swear by my Eagle Bombers though. Bypassing shields, re-rolling attacks and hitting crusiers on 5+ is just wonderful. Especially at point blank when the opponent can't react to the threat.

Oh yes! I have seen what these bastards can do! Me and my eldar friend fought against another friend's chaos fleet. We almost destroyed his Desolator in one attack run! Well, to be truthful, we forgot to substract four attacks per bomber because of the turrets, but still, they are NOT friendly customers, those bombers!


what kind of ordnance mines or whatever should i need?

None, if you have the cardboard ones that come in the starter set. If not, try to find someone who does, borrow their markers, make a photocopy of them, paste it to some slim cardboard or construction paper, cut, and voila! Markers that are much, MUCH cheaper than the metal ones! Plus, they are easier to use (I find) and look better too.


the thunderhawk upgrade i did read a little on. what are anythought on those and would i need mines or whatever and approximately how many blister?

A lot of people are not happy with the fighter/assault boat config of the T-hawk, so GW made the T-hawk annihilator, a stupid idea that is totally unfluffy. Personnaly, I don't have any mines, but if I wanted them, I'd probably just make some with some cardboard.


what are the most common types of terrain used for BFG and what are the ideal planet and moon sizes to use?

I just use the stuff that came in the box, though a lot of people make their own planets. One idea for you though, if you do intend to make terrain: if you're going to make planets, don't take a styrofoam ball and stick it on a flying base; cut it in two equally sized halves. That way A) it'll be more steady on the tabletop and B) you will know precisely where the boundaries of the planetoid are.


Tyrant class Cruiser, the 'Intolerant'

Nice name... I just might have to steal it! :D Intolerant would be a fine name for Indignation's sister ship.


Gothic class Cruiser, the 'White Templar'

Don't tell me: it's painted white!


7 x Cobra class Destroyers

How did you end up with 7?


5 x Serpent class Destroyers (carriers, home made rules)

Stats?


8 x Grunt Assault ship

From what I gather, the Space Marines are probably THE hardest fleet to play with. You HAVE to squadron your SCs or else they don't stand a chance. A lot of people believe they would be more balanced if they had more shields and more turrets (at least for the BB). Also, a few are of the opinion the weapon loadouts should be variable (no lances though) so as to better represent the fact that BB and SC are just broad designations, not really proper "classes" much like the Torture and Corsair are not proper "classes" of Eldar ships.

EDIT: As an addendum, I forgot to count my 3 Messengers which come in at 150pts, but rarely are used in a game, if they are, it tends to be for proxy reasons. Any spares I have would be for the one lone Warden who isn't part of the fleet :cries:

I prefer just using the flat cardboard style planets, because that way you allow ships to move over the planet. Is that... not a good idea?


Nice name... I just might have to steal it! :D Intolerant would be a fine name for Indignation's sister ship.
Sure thing. Just be sure to give me credit in fine print :P


Don't tell me: it's painted white!
Actually, it is painted bone colour and blue, just like the rest of that fleet (Battlefleet Lazarus). So take this :p


How did you end up with 7?
I bough three blisters, giving me 12 cobras, and then used 5 to convert to Serpent class.


Stats?
Same as Cobra, except instead of torpedoes, it has a strength 1 launch bay. 50 points. I've yet to try it out though.

I believe the rules for the Grunt Assault ship is on the Specialist Games website, in the new rules for the ork fleet.

I wish those people worked for Specialist Games :(

I'm thinking that maybe the solution is to rely more on boarding actions, as I haven't really tried that much. Make the most of teleport attacks and such, which I tend to forget.

Good to know that other people find them difficult to play with though, so it's not just me. On the other hands, it makes me feel a bit depressed about spending so much money buying that fleet :)

By using the Armageddon Fleet list, right? Well, there are two things the SM fleet lack: range and lances. So an Emperor BB might be a good idea (plus, it would give you bombers, which IMHO, is better than assault boats in most situations) or if you feel exotic, an Apocalypse, though I wouldn't recomment it. An Armageddon BC would also give you some range and lances. As for cruisers, two Lunars or two Gothics would give you some more lances, and two upgraded Tyrants would give you some range. You could also look into Nova Cannons, as that would give your fleet some standoff capacity while your Marine ships close. I think you have enough escorts.

One note, though: you HAVE (and I mean HAVE) to get at least one more Strike Cruiser (possibly... no probably... two); they are just to puny to cause much harm on their own. A squadron of 3-4 is another thing.


and are they marine ships as customizable as the imperila navy seems to be?

I'm not sure I understand what you mean there.


I prefer just using the flat cardboard style planets, because that way you allow ships to move over the planet. Is that... not a good idea?

It is, but you are limited to one planet and a small moon, hence why a lot of people make their own.


Sure thing. Just be sure to give me credit in fine print :P

Ok! ;)

Let us know how they do.

I'll have to check.


I wish those people worked for Specialist Games :(

Well, the nice thing about SG is that a lot of the playtesting is done by the players, and they are actively seeking our opinion, contrarily to Core games. So there is a fairly good chance that if enough people push for it, it will become true.


I'm thinking that maybe the solution is to rely more on boarding actions, as I haven't really tried that much. Make the most of teleport attacks and such, which I tend to forget.

Good luck! Boarding/Teleport attack are not easy to pull off!

You'll get used to it.

Chaos
Planet Killer
Hades
2xDevestations
2xCarnage/Murders
2xSlaughters
2x blank hulls (probably will become a Styx and something else when the Styx gets reduced to 250 points)
About 1750 points or more. I could probably stretch 2500 if I assembled the 2 hulls.

IN
Mars
Dictator
Lunar
Lunar (will become an Armageddon when I get two more cruisers)
4 swords

OK, here are my fleets.

Chaos
I went mad on ebay and ended up with the following. It's short one cruiser to be fully legal; once I have a better feel for what I like (and if I ever play a game that forces me to field more than 11 cruisers), the styxes and hades will go on the chopping block & downgraded to cruisers of some sort.
Battleships

1 Despoiler, the Requiem Prosperii, led by Warmaster Mephiston of the Thousand Sons, patron of the wronged.

1 Desolator, the Eternity of Pain
Grand Cruisers

2 Repulsives, the Grievous and the Wolfsbane

1 Retaliator, the Reprehensible, led by Lord Dario, blessed of Slaanesh
Heavy Cruisers

2 Styx (unnamed)

2 Hades (unnamed)

2 Acherons, the Wretched and the Malevolent
Cruisers

4 Devastations, the Unholy Absolution, Warlock, Maligned, and Detestable

4 Carnages, the Bereaver, Unrepentant, Reprobate and Ruination

3 Slaughters, the Refuge of Agony, Animus Domini, and Despicable
Escorts

12 of various sorts rotting in my bitz box because they're ugly as sin. 4 more Ork ramships that I use as any type of escort that toots my whistle at the moment.
Adds up to (very roughly) 5000 pts.

Eldar
My first fleet, bought to go along with my 40k eldar. The giant-butterflies-in-space look is pretty, but I dislike how they play.
1 Eclipse
2 Solaris
2 Hellebores
1 Aconites
7 Hemlocks
6 Nightshades

Tyranids
My favorite fleet, currently on hold while I agonize over a paint scheme:
2 Hive ships (one metal **** ship, one converted from 40k bitz)
3 Cruisers
17 Escorts

Imperial
Cruisers from the boxed set. These serve as loaners when my opponent doesn't have a big enough fleet of his own.
1 Mars
1 Dominator
1 Gothic
1 Lunar

Currently debating between Space Marines & Commerce Protection as my next fleet.

Battlebarge
4 * Strike cruisers
3 * Gladius Frigates
3 * Nova Frigates

Only played a couple of games with em and have done ok (no lost yet woot) and none of em have been planetery assault.

The Marines list is good and fast you just have to close up real quick and focus your fire

@ReDavid: A few things that popped to mind:

-If you have to drop a Heavy Cruiser, drop one of your Styx. You already have plenty of LBs from your Devastations, your Despoiler and your other Styx.

-On the escorts: yeah, the Chaos escorts are poo, so you have to convert them! My suggestions:

Idolator: instead of using the "gun skull" for the forward lance, simply use a plastic lance array from the cruiser set. For the bridge, just chop off the "rabbit ears" (i.e. antennas). You can also use a chopped down spare plastic cruiser bridge to replace it. Also, cutting the "arms" (lance arrays or whatever are the things on the side of the hull) can't hurt looks.

Infidels:The only thing the infidels need is to chop off the antennas on the bridge.

Iconoclasts: Personnaly, I like these, so I don't know how they could be improved.

-I like the names you gave your ships. However, "Ruination"? Yeah, it's an old-fashioned synonym for ruin, but it sounds weird (to me, at least). I think just plain "Ruin" or even better "Ruinous" would be better than "Ruination", which sounds to much like "rumination".

Right my fleets are:

Eldar:
Voidstalker batleship (forge of vaul) = 380
Eclipse cruiser (sliver claw) = 250
2*Shadow cruisers (nova claw, bright claw) = 2*210 (420)
Nightshade destroyer squadron (3) = 120
Hemlock squadron (3) = 120
Hellbore squadron (4) = 300
Aconite squadron (3) = 195

Total = 1785

Necrons:
Tombship*2 (001,010) = 1000+50 (Sepulchre)

Damnation. The mail order contained two Hellebores instead of the Eclipse. Have to keep track of what I order the next time. Oh well, I'll wait some then.

But it is what I ordered. It's just that I couldn't remember what I ordered. Besides, it would be stupid of me to order an Eclipse when there are two of them left in the store.:p
