Re: The Harpy

I personally think we could split the weapon into two profiles (whether we increase firepower and damage potential or not) and that makes it more flexible for "clearance work". Additionally, giving it outlier is a cool idea and resonates with the idea of them being pack hunters that flank an enemy. ...

Re: Splitting a squad into two transports

Yes, but one of those squads has been split into two individual transports. Is that in and of itself legal, if so, how is coherency handled during transit inside the transports (bears) and disembarking?

Re: The Harpy

Do you apply Squadron rules to the Toulons now? Cuz if you do (per the errata/etc.)... they are kinda beastly.

Re: Resistance Starter Box

I've only played 2 game so far with Resistance, but so far I'm VERY impressed with 4 Heavy Frigates with dual Vent Cannons. The extra DP is a big deal, the armor is solid, and the damage output has been pretty great.

That being said, I can see using the Hybrid Turrets just as well.

Re: Resistance Starter Box

Yes and no. Squadron forces you to focus all shots on a single target (which might be overkill and wasting shots that could go after other targets) and is eventually lost if the ships are being destroyed. The Vent Cannons keep their potency regardless of casualties and allow for better distribution ...

Re: The Harpy

I've never liked the Harpy... and you are correct, now that Succubus are available, I don't see a reason to ever take one. I will say that there is a benefit to "target diffusion" which is to say, three targets is superior to two, because it is more difficult to destroy and will likely cause wasted ...
