The shoulder turrets could use a slight buff indeed. Overall I don't find UCM lacking firepower wise.

I'll let you guys know how it went!

Well just back from the game: I won convincingly! I used tge BTL list.

Opponents list was:

Vanguard
Leonidas ( gun battlecruiser) with 3AV
2x Thesseus light

Vanguard
Bellerophon
4x carrier

Line
1x bombardment troopship
2x medea

Line group
1x gun troopship

Pathfinder
4x medea

so a bit suboptimal with only 5 BG's vs mine 6. We both took the space station and the cluster on our sides. I realuzed tgat I could win by holding my ships a bit back and shooting him from range. Most of his firepower units where dead or dying by the end of turn 4 when he concieded and his dropships whete out of position to do anything usefull.

No problem. The scenario favours BTL lists I think because I could just force him to move into my range. His two troopships were also ineffective mostly due to the lack of targets I was giving him.

I really like my dual Seattle and the dual Berlins did the heavy lifting for most of the match. The Avalon did 1 damage total, guess it needs a new pair of batteries for the super BTL.

No wonder it has run out of batteries since our last battle... Are you planning to go the Arnhem end of august? Moonshot is one of the scenarios that will be played.

Not entirely sure at the moment if everything eorks out planningwise but I'm hoping to go. Maybe I even leave the Avalon at home ;)
