Re: Resistance Starter Box

https://i.imgur.com/34LvE2d.jpg Well, my first box is complete. On the left, top to bottom: Light Carrier, Cruiser, Troopship On the right: Heavy Frigate, Light Frigate, Strike Carrier ... :( I'm gonna hate putting the rest of the fleet together with so few components per sprue. And, no, I still ha...

Re: Resistance Starter Box

Been thinking of a few other builds I could put together, to round out a Resistance fleet. C+S would be appreciated One thing I have to note is that I tend to prefer units with a defined role in the battleplan, rather than all-rounders that can do everything - such units tend to be weak at everythin...

Re: Resistance builds

Query - I can agree that fighter support is needed for the Resistance, to buff the abysmally low PD values, but how many would we be looking for? A single bay is enough to cover a battlegroup in a 1500pt game (1 stand per ship), but should we be looking for more? Or are the Resistance bombers just n...

Re: Fire ships

I'd actually counter that they do count towards the limit, since they're in the same list as fighters and bombers - they're just bought at the same time as Dropships (and are probably dropships packed with explosives).

Probably best to think of them as a special sort of bomber.

Resistance Starter Box

So, I finally got my Resistance Fleet starter box today - real fast delivery from TT, so hats off to them. Unfortunately, when I opened the box, two things immediately jumped out. First off, there was no fast play stats to work with - the other races all had a quick reference stats sheet that you co...
