Re: Fire ships

I would say that they can be countered by point defence, like the other launch assets. Otherwise the new lighter might be a bit too powerful with what amounts to three attacks that can do three damage each!

Re: Getting into the game - UCM for beginners (on a budget)

Magnets are definitely your friend, as Thunderboy says. I did the same for my fleet - not every ship, but enough to allow me to customise my fleet any way I like. The beauty of UCM is that you can evolve your approach to suit your personal style, and add more of whatever elements work best for you. ...

Re: Damage Control (Part 2) - A Reyna Hevn Story (Chapter 7)

A classic tale of heroism and quiet self-sacrifice, very nicely written. You have brought humanity and compassion to the story without either overdoing it or underplaying it - you’ve judged the balance really well. Great stuff!

Re: Gauntlet's Showcase

That’s a pretty amazing collection! I’ve been inspired by your conversion work before, but to see it en masse in such beautiful fleets is very cool.

Re: Some experimental rules...

With regard to revised rules 1&2, I can see exactly what you are both saying - and there is definitely merit to both points of view e.g. Signature: in low orbit you probably need a higher energy output to hold position deeper in the gravity well, but to an enemy looking down from higher orbit the pl...

Re: Starting Shaltari

Difficult choices! For me, it depends what you want to achieve: 1. 2x Granite: cheapest points, but having too many ships which need to line up F(N) arcs ready for Weapons Free could be tricky to manage. 2. Obsidian and Turquoise: only one ship to manoeuvre for WF (with a big payoff if you can set i...

Re: Fan forum, fan support?

A bunch of awesome people (plus me!) banded together to create a place where we could share and discuss our love of the Drop Commander universe, be it through painting, converting, story-telling, perhaps even some gaming! :roll: We wanted to capture the feel of how things were in the days when the H...

Re: Voting for the DFC Unit Design competion!

Some really cool designs, well done to all who submitted entries!

I like that there is a strong theme of “support ships” in the entries, something that DFC has little of (as Doktor points out in the design notes), good to see people are thinking about how to evolve the game.

Re: Big changes to the ship profiles in the official fleet builder

I noticed the same, and there have been changes in the Shaltari as well, with all the particle lances being given Fusillade(1), from the Diamond right down to the Jade. I also noted the downgrading of the attack value on the Diamond - at this point not sure if that is a counter balance to gaining Fu...
