The Phat Blue Line (Hyperspace Republic)

Recommended Posts

Just beef & potatoes, trusting a quartet of Phat Torrents with missiles can hold their own with support from the LAAT and from their own mod cards.

I've built something similar and while I have an unholy love of 7thFG (we will not speak of the small shrine to the card set up in my laundry room at this time) I think this squad may be better served by Wolfpack.  It better enables an opening round missile pain train against higher initiative opponents.  

And to toss out one other idea, swapping concussion missiles for homing missiles along the earlier WartPack suggestion frees enough points to add Plo crew.  Oddly enough Plo and Wolfpack work extremely well together.  As a bonus, forcing your opponent to decide how they want to deal with up to four homing missiles is deliciously evil.

Awesome ideas, but I had to skip Wolfpack because it's not Hyperspace legal (ditto Homing Missiles). I'll throw together an Extended version later when I have the time. Thanks! 😎🍺

Huh. So Wolfpack is, indeed, HS legal. I looked it up on the Wiki and thought I saw a no. Oh, well, my mistake.

Anyway, here's your suggested version in Extended mode with Plo and the Homing Missiles.

Almost...scummy? 🤔

Maaaaaaybe. 😁 Quad homing Torrents have been a long time favorite of myself and another player in my group who's also a frequent Scum flier. 

The extended build you posted is exactly what I had in mind by the way.

Gotta get SynCon on Warthog, too.  That'll go a long way towards ensuring locks.  I'd just drop one Conc (probably here, but maybe on a Torrent) down to an Ion Missile.  Damage isn't really much worse, but the extra lock would be handy.  Could cut a Dedicated instead, but that's irksome to my sense of symmetry.

Done; and have a small bid, too.

I played that Homing Missiles version the other night, and thanks to a combination of VERY friendly dice variance, a list vulnerable to the shenanigans I was about to pull, and some less-than-ideal flying on my opponent's behalf (not realizing what was about to happen to him), I won VERY handily.  It didn't feel like a great test run for the list, to be fair, because of how lopsided things got really quickly... but yeah.  Was kind of a bloodbath.  Gonna keep trying it. 👍
