    Potential Rebel Epic ship in ep9(starhawk)

    Are they though? I mean If I recall correctly they were built during the galactic civil war, while the mc85 line was supposedly build after the war. on a similar note: I‘d also say that starhawk is rather only large and not huge.

    What Commander Calrissian upgrade will be like

    26 pts: after deploying fleets place two round tokens on this card. In the choosen rounds each friendly squadron gains ROGUE during the squadron phase.

    Custom Ship Thread

    However Wookiepedia, which would consider as fairly reliable, states that „Despite possessing powerful weaponry and being on par with the Victory-class, the Venator-class was designed with an additional starfighter carrier role in mind...“ and, considering the Venators DBY-827 Turbolasers, „In terms of firepower, these weapons rivaled the main battery on the later Imperial I-class Star Destroyers...“ Making me think that relative to the victorys 6 die/3 die layout a 3 die/5 die layout with a range layout akin to the armoured MC75 is totally reasonable (short range front arc and long range side arcs) greetings

    Eagerly Awaiting Next Necro'ed Gem of a Thread

    It checks out?
  5. I’ll will let you know - if i ever cast them, though currently the build is on hold - school comes first for now, holidays are a few weeks away though

    Episode IX

    Setting aside the plot itself - the description of that alien girl sounds an awful lot like the force sensitive chiss children from Thrawn alliances, just my five cents

    Squadron upgrades

    Seven die interceptors? please not, though I play imperial.... Edit: my bad, I should read all the words, never mind but still: three die b wings and four die decimators?

    The Executor opens up for a number of other ships..

    The bellator is only 7200m big according to wookiepedia

    The Executor opens up for a number of other ships..

    @Baudolino Allegience and Secutor should still be large size I think, however the others definitely a nice idea, however what is the annihilator SSD? I never heard of it. @jarmus mrawn yes please

    Norse's Guide to making custom Armada ships

    @FoaS just an idea concerning the crowdedness on KDY - might it be a solution to change the default visibility setting to unlisted or private instead of public?
  11. So I've thought about the stats for the ship(s) and merged/used some ideas/critique of others here in the thread. So lets start with the the cheaper Carrier Refit (aka the xyz I-class equivalent): I think (especially after the reveal of the executor) that the 7 die represent a good compromise for the Secutor, having only the firepower of a Star Destroyer and allowing it to still be weaker than the ISD. I also think that the 2 red, 3 blue, 2 black division of die doesn't define it as either a Brawler or Artillery piece. This also acting for the side arcs. Shield wise I think that the 4/3/1 split of the shields is a good way of keeping it on par with the ISD (considering the 12 Hull) while also giving it a definite weakspot in the rear. It keeps the command value of 3 of all large ships. With the ESD out now the squadron value had to be 5 and so it is lastly the engineering value is a underwhelming 3, in line with the low value of the quasar, to give it more focus on squadrons (just say, that most the crew is servicing squadrons). The speed has a maximum of 2, with the movement profile of the interdictor. Upgradewise it has the obligatory officer, a weapons team and two offensive retrofits, putting the focus on its carrier duty and finally an ordnance and ion slot as weapon upgrades. However I am not really sure about those (absolutely not). So, onwards with the more expensive Command Refit (aka the xyz II-class equivalent (I was getting bored of calling thinks I and II)) : The base stats are the same, only the armament, upgrade suite and point cost change, all of them putting it more in a multi-role battleship role. The armament, gets a longer range focus by changing two black die for a blue and a red in the front, and for a blue in the sides/rear. The upgrades stay roughly the same. It gains some resilience, while losing some of its carrying ability, switching a offensive retrofit for a defensive one. It also gains a fleet command slot to meet its name. The next change is its loss of the ordnance slot for a turbolaser slot, keeping up with its armament. Finally it loses an anti squadron dice, decreasing the armament to 1 blue compared to the Carrier refits 2 black (ala the ISD II in legends). The only thing left now is the point cost. I put them both above all ISDs, or rather the cheaper one is as expensive as the most expensive ISD. However I am absolutely not sure wether its to cheap or expensive or just right. I also would also like to either add an shield to the rear or to increase the engineering value by 1, but I think it is fairly good for now. Addendum/Afterthoughts: I forgot to show the arc-layout, though its nothing special: Other stuff: I thought about some titles: Conquest (6 pts.): After deployment, place two command tokens of your choice on this card.At the start of any Ship phase you may remove 1 of these tokens and assign it to this ship. It gives a way of obtaining command tokens without spending dials, other than coms net flotillas or officers as aresko, yularen or grint. It also gives a toned-down, limited version of thrawns effect. It helps in the command/flagship role serving the fleet commands, or it could also help your squadron commands. Requestor (6 pts.): Squadron command: You can activate squadrons in close-medium range of friendly ships at distance 1-5. This again helps again the carrier role, giving all friendly ships in range an effect similar to relay or Centicore. I fear that this might be to strong, so - depending on feedback - I might shorten the distances. Praedatrix (5 pts.): Concentrate Fire command: When attacking you may reroll any number of die in your attack pool. This gives an alternative to reroll die other than Vader, Leading shots and veteran gunners/ordnance experts, boasting its offensive output, while somewhat hindering its squadron commanding ability (though not much).
  12. I definitely will, if I do a mould of it. gonna see how the rest of the build works out before that though

    Tagge and SSD

    Maybe he even has a synergy with an annihilator title, however that would work
  14. The Lay out/Ship in itself seems nice, however I think it isn’t so fitting for the secutor, mainly its side arcs ar too powerful in my opinion -personally wouldn’t say more than 4 die, I like the seven foward die though, seems perfectly right. Thanks, well not completely scratch built, but I already thought about making a mould of it, though i‘d had to learn that aswell ...

    What would make you take tie fighters?

    I frequently use Ties as my only squadron screen , combined with a heavily packed out quasar Quasar. I like them - best bang for the buck
