Re: The Harpy

Mainbe losing the Atmospheric rule and reducing the points? That will set it apart from the other frigates, but it breaks the theme.

Overall I think gun frigates are in a bad place. I've only sporadically seem PHR gun frigates and never seen or used any of the UCM's

Re: Resistance Starter Box

That is a good point. Vent cannon heavy frigates look like good damage dealers, although a bit pricy at 42 pts per ship

Re: Resistance Starter Box

That is 4 attacks each right with Vent Cannons. On a lock 3.

Wouldn't the normal turret be better because of the squadron rule? And is cheaper as well?

Re: The use of Centurions in the UCM fleet

Might be interesting to silent run them up the board untill they can go weapons free.
Somehow I always want to take a pair of Centurions instead of a single one, except maybe as a cheap flagship

Re: First experience with Resistance

Hmm that is interesting. I think you are right, it might be to much eggs in a single basket, especially if it is also a flagship. A Phalanx might be better suited for that role

Re: First experience with Resistance

It isn't slower then a New York so that is fine by me.

Re: Resistance builds

That is an interesting light cruiser build. Although I'm affraid these will be prima targets for the enemy given their dual role and the importance of fighter cover in a Resistance fleet. I would maybe build a couple of dedicated cruiser carriers ( maybe even lights with just launch and ablative) an...
