Draco's Kalium List - 1500 pts

Post by draco84oz »

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 problem. It'll be making sure my dice play along.

Vanguard Battlegroup - SR 10, 175 pts
Head Engineer (Upgraded to High Technician for Free)
Centurion Grand Cruiser

Line Battlegroup - SR 17, 356 pts
Milites Cruiser
- Hybrid Broadside x 2
- Vent Cannon Turret
- Ablative Armour
2 x Cornicen Escort Carrier
- Fighters Broadside
- Vent Cannon Turret
- Ablative Armour
2 x Gladius Heavy Frigate
- 2 x Hybrid Turret

Line Battlegroup - SR 17, 356 pts
Milites Cruiser
- Hybrid Broadside x 2
- Vent Cannon Turret
- Ablative Armour
2 x Cornicen Escort Carrier
- Fighters Broadside
- Vent Cannon Turret
- Ablative Armour
2 x Gladius Heavy Frigate
- 2 x Hybrid Turret

Pathfinder Battlegroup - SR 12, 248 pts
2 x Immunes Blockade Runner
- Bulk Lander Broadside
- Vent Cannon Turret
- Drive Refit
2 x Calligulae Strike Carrier


Pathfinder Battlegroup - SR 7, 179 pts
Scutum Troopship (Cruiser)

2 x Calligulae Strike Carrier


Line Battlegroup - SR 7, 179 pts
Scutum Troopship (Cruiser)
- 2 x Bulk Lander Broadside
- Bombardment Turret
- Ablative Armour
2 x Calligulae Strike Carrier

TOTAL - 6 Battlegroups, 1493 pts

Yes, I know one of the invasion groups is a Pathfinder, but I'm limited to 3 Line groups at 1500 pts. At least it can count for both types.

One thing i'm still unsure about is the number of vent turrets I have on my cruisers. I'm tempted to put on Artillery instead, since its a guaranteed 3 shots (at Lock 4+), and most of the Vent Cannon rules only take effect at Weapons Free - and that's not something I intend to do that often. Still, it is a Kalium Fleet, and they don't tend to care about their crews...

Well with your expert crew, ie losing a major spike, weapons free is a slightly less of a draw back.
So yea its thematic. And that's always a choose. Mathammer it, or fluff your fleet.
I think you've got a nice balance, with also plenty of hybrid guns.

Would make an impressive sight I think if you put a striking colour on the Vent cannons
