New units in Battle for Earth

So, the lockdown is getting me a bit antsy, so I figured I'd put together a list of list of visuals of all the new units that showed up in pictures, if not prototype models in the Battle for Earth. Because not only are there quite a few, but the new Kalium units are getting me a little excited. Plus...

Re: UCM Monitors: Instanbul vs Vienna

I think the confusion is from the fact that they're two different ships, just built on the same hull. The Vienna is an Escort - probably best to think of it as a variant of the Jakarta that trades out some Aegis value for a Mamba laser and more CAW. The big difference is its speed, so its definitely...

Re: Resistance : task force dauntless!

1. What's a Gladius? Its not one of the listed Resistance ships 2. If you're putting a sensor dome on a heavy frigate, probably think about putting the vent turret on that one instead of a hybrid - with only 2 hybrid guns in the group, you're missing out on using the Squadron rule, which is what mak...

Ship names

Was reading the fluff again last night, and got looking at the numbers of ships that the UCM has - over 3500 fighting vessels of Frigate weight, over 900 cruisers, 86 Battleships, 9 Dreadnoughts and 5 Super Carriers. However, of the super-heavies, three dreadnoughts were lost over Olympus, and the F...

You could almost do a game of DFC over one of those ships - dropping troops onto critical systems or locations...

Re: Dreadnought rules?

Wonder if they’re ever going to release the Scourge super-dreadnought? But how would they be balanced for the other factions? Shaltari Adamantium-Class Titan? Such a ship seems too much of a resource waste for the UCM. And the PHR is even smaller than the UCM, I’m surprised they have Dreadnoughts in...

How many ships does a Resistance make?

I got another delivery of Resistance ships today (send help!) and I got to wondering, "Geez, these are some really excellent frames to be playing around with. I wonder how many combinations are possible with them?" And since I love maths... BTW - feel free to check my figures - I don't claim to know...

Objectives Required

Request - can someone check my numbers for this sheet? https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1uDklv_aqgWEs6YsGpdCNk6ETiC6UmiRMbmmrevvBoJY/edit?usp=sharing Got it into me to list out how many of each objective marker/station I need for all scenarios in the rules - I came up with needing two standard...

Re: New Factions ideas

I think they're setting up Kalium to be a more "organised" version of the Resistance - throughout Battle For Earth, there are pics of military vehicles that could easily be Kalium versions of Resistance units. And I'm liking that idea. The biggest problems with introducing a new faction into a game ...

Draco's Kalium List - 1500 pts

So, after putting together my first few Kalium ships, I've worked out a bit of a starter fleet to work towards over time. The strategy relies heavily on scan to make the most of my (few) weapons, but with 6 strike carriers, all with sensor domes, I don't believe that getting scans in will be a probl...
