Re: Resistance Starter Box

Eh. Wouldn't surprise me if that gets edited. If you read the wording, it's trying to answer two questions in one answer and it isn't particularly well written. Whereas BFE is pretty clear that it was intended you can OC two linked weapons. This also impacts the PHR Dread overly much.

Re: First experience with Resistance

I think game size is really going to determine if it's good or bad to be a jack of all trades... in a 750 point game... I think it's very very beneficial, in a 1250 or 1500... Yeek. At larger sizes, robust ships are easier to take down, which is fine, but then I really need to make sure those larger...

Re: UCM: Operation Verdun

Overall, I'm interested to see how it would play. It obviously has no real CQB, but it's difficult to mount serious CQB as UCM anyways, and I made sure to include some Fireblades to compensate. The Snipers are really just to have SOME Scouts, but really would've been nice to put in Wolverines (off t...

Splitting a squad into two transports

During army construction, I make a Frontline group and take 2 squads of 2 Flak Teams and a Squad of 2 Legionaries. I then intend to place each Flak team within a Bear and divide the Legionaries between the two bears, as this is 6 bases/infantry slots and the 2 Bears have 6 capacity. Is this legal? O...

Re: First experience with Resistance

1) The model isn't released... however, I built one using a standard cruiser hull and combining it with a standard frigate hull for length... added bits to taste. 2) The Tribune suffered most from it's horrible speed. That being said, it dropped some troops in a nearby easy cluster, sent fighters ou...

Re: Fast play reference

I haven't seen a quick-play... there are various cheat sheets for things like common stats/charts/etc. but not a play-by-play sheet.

That being said, I would also search the Facebook group's file section just in case.

First experience with Resistance

Just played my first game with Resistance... very refreshing coming off of years of UCM VS Scourge. It was 750 point game of Resistance VS Scourge, we both had 9 launch... I made a few mistakes... like thinking 4 fighters was enough to stop 6 bombers from wiping out a 8DP ship... It was not. But I u...

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

The Moscow is now a A++ choice in any list in my opinion. I like where it sits, but wonder about how cheap it is. I think ultimately the ship is hard to balance due to the sheer volume of weapon systems, and if we could remodel it, I'd remove the upper turrets, give the lower turrets fusilade, and m...
