2nd 1250 point scourge list

PostTue May 16, 2017 2:42 pm

So after playing a game of DFC and getting my ass handed to me, I've had a bit of a rethink before the UK games Expo.
So here is my second list, I've got hold of some corvettes, and I also have decided some more gargoyles are necessary, so what's everyone's thoughts?

1250 scourge 2 - 1240pts
Scourge - 5 launch assets

SR11 Vanguard battlegroup (237pts)
1 x Basilisk - 205pts - H
   + Fleet Enslaver (20pts, 2AV)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR6 Line battlegroup (142pts)
1 x Ifrit - 110pts - M
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR11 Line battlegroup (267pts)
1 x Hydra - 140pts - M
1 x Nickar - 22pts - L
1 x Wyvern - 105pts - M

SR12 Line battlegroup (296pts)
1 x Chimera - 105pts - M
2 x Djinn - 86pts - L
1 x Wyvern - 105pts - M

SR4 Pathfinder battlegroup (138pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Nickar - 22pts - L
2 x Scylla - 84pts - L

SR4 Pathfinder battlegroup (140pts)
2 x Djinn - 86pts - L
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Nickar - 22pts - L

I would put all 3 Nickar in one group so they can combine their CAW. I would also recommend dropping the Chimera for 3 Gargoyles. Next, combine the Djinn into one group. Last, I don't see 2 Scylla as doing a whole lot. Maybe exchange for Charybdis for some bombardment help. Repost the list if you make any of these changes.

Due to the constraints of my current collection, I can only have 6 gargoyles.

I actually really like the Scylla, since it can just sit in atmosphere and target larger ships, and the only things that can really do anything about them are corvettes, and I've got some of my own to look out for that.

with that in mind, I also realised I only have 12 frigates, so I had to upgrade some of my cruisers to heavies to make up the points difference.

Scourge - 5 launch assets

SR21 Vanguard battlegroup (397pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Basilisk - 205pts - H
   + Fleet Champion (40pts, 3AV)
1 x Raiju - 160pts - H

SR11 Vanguard battlegroup (202pts)
1 x Shenlong - 170pts - H
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR6 Line battlegroup (172pts)
1 x Hydra - 140pts - M
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR6 Line battlegroup (137pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Wyvern - 105pts - M

SR3 Pathfinder battlegroup (118pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
2 x Djinn - 86pts - L

SR6 Pathfinder battlegroup (182pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
3 x Nickar - 66pts - L
2 x Scylla - 84pts - L

2 Djinn won't do much good. Better to change the 2 Scylla for Djinn or the 2 Djinn for Sylla.

1250 scourge 4 - 1245pts
Scourge - 6 launch assets

SR16 Vanguard battlegroup (332pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Ifrit - 110pts - M
1 x Manticore - 190pts - H
   + Fleet Champion (40pts, 3AV)

SR11 Vanguard battlegroup (202pts)
1 x Shenlong - 170pts - H
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR6 Line battlegroup (172pts)
1 x Hydra - 140pts - M
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L

SR6 Line battlegroup (137pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
1 x Wyvern - 105pts - M

SR3 Pathfinder battlegroup (118pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
2 x Djinn - 86pts - L

SR7 Pathfinder battlegroup (244pts)
1 x Gargoyle - 32pts - L
2 x Nickar - 44pts - L
4 x Scylla - 168pts - L

I've downgraded the Raiju to an ifrit, the basalisk to a manicore and got rid of one of the corvettes. This means I've got enough points for another 2 scylla.

The Manticore is crap. Always take a Basilisk over an Manticore if you have the choice unless Hawk will improve torpedoes.

If I downgrade the remaining shenlong to a Raiju, I've just got enough points to make the manticore a basalisk. Would that be the better choice?

That's up to you. A Shenlong and a Raiju have a very different armament, but they perform a similar role. If you like the Shenlong weapons, you could downgrade it to a Sphinx instead. It has almost the same guns, but you'd lose the Stealth and Partial Cloak bonuses. Personally, I would go with the make the trade off you mentioned (Manticore -> Basilisk, and Shenlong -> Raiju) instead of downgrading further. 2x Basilisks would be the best combo, but that would need more points.


I'm not a fan of splitting up your Gargoyles so much. In column or distant approach types, they run a high risk of getting sniped before they get into atmosphere.
