Suggestions for moving up to 1250

PostWed Aug 23, 2017 2:12 am

Played my first game beyond a starter with this fleet:

--------------------------------------
1000 Point PHR - 997pts
PHR - 4 launch assets

SR11 Vanguard battlegroup (217pts)
1 x Bellerophon - 180pts - H
   + Director (80pts, 4AV)
1 x Calypso - 37pts - L

SR10 Line battlegroup (178pts)
2 x Theseus - 178pts - M

SR6 Line battlegroup (167pts)
1 x Orpheus - 130pts - M
1 x Calypso - 37pts - L

SR5 Pathfinder battlegroup (195pts)
2 x Medea - 78pts - L
2 x Medea - 78pts - L
1 x Medea - 39pts - L

SR4 Pathfinder battlegroup (200pts)
4 x Pandora - 200pts - L
------------- dflist.com -------------


It pretty much uses every ship I own. I am thinking of grabbing either a Battleship or Battlecruiser for the move up to 1250. I thought I would ask for opinions before I did. Any suggestions on holes I could fill in this fleet?

I think you do not need a BS or BC. I'd recommend another Starter and build at least one more Troopship (I'd prefer a second Orpheus) or even more as they are right now clearly the best package you can get. Concerning the Frigates I'd build 2 additional Calypsos and Medeas.

There is 3 things I would recommend to add in your list when you move from 999 to 1250:
- 2nd belle (more bombers)
- 2nd troopship (more objectives in 1000+ point games)
- unit of Echos (PHR work best in units of 3+)

In order to fit all these, and taking the ships you have into account, you need to drop a Theseus and Pandora to make it fit and downgrade your commander to AV3.

SR10 Vang: 1xBelle + VD (AV3)
SR10 Vang: 1xBelle
SR9 Line: 1x Theseus, 3x Echo, 1x medea
SR8 Line: 1x Orpheus, 1x Calypso, 2x Medea
SR8 Line: 1x Orpheus or Ganymede, 1x Calypso, 2x Medea
SR3 Path: 3x Pandora

The 3 Echos can easily be replace by your 2nd Theseus.

Group.

One Echo is a Unit.
Three Echoes is a Group.

(One Echo can also be a Group, but I wouldn't recommend it...)





(Sorry, pet peeve of mine. In Dropxxxx, one model is a Unit, and a set of models is either a Squad (Zone) or a Group (Fleet).

Class dismissed...)

:lol:
I love my job (well, I love having a job), but a bad day of gaming beats a good day of work every time!
