I am starting with BFG and I am making chaos fleet at 750 pts. What will be the deast deal for me?
Couple of my opios:
3X Murder = 510
plus some marks, crew and escorts
2X Murder = 340
1X Styx = 275
total is 615 so the rest spent for marks, crew and escorts
Or something absolutely different?
Thanks for advices
If your planning on picking up a some chaos cruisers it's worth noting that you get two in each box with a large variety of plastic bits. That means you'll have 4 cruisers to build a fleet which is perfect for 750point fleet engagements. With this in mind I'd do the following:
750 points exactly. Squadron the Hades and Murder (HM combo). And then squadron the 2 Devastations. Go abeam with the devastations and go straight at the prow of the enemy with the HM combo. This will give you an alpha strike of 10 lances at 60cm! With lock-on special orders it can be brutual. Additionally, your 2 Devastations can put out 8 attack craft instead of the 6 from a single Styx. Lastly, you have WBs on all your ships to help bring down the shields at close range.
Note: Using the Black Crusade Fleet list you are not required to take a Warmaster.
Hope that helps,
It really helps very much. I am not new in wargaming but in Gothic yes. So thanks for your help, my fleet will be arrange by your advice, just one more question what is Black crusade fleet list? I never heard anything about it.
Yes the heavier carriers are somewhat black sheep in the Chaos fleets. Especially at lower point limits it's just better to stick with light carriers like the devastation. Granted I own a Styx and Despoiler and I love to field them.
The Black Crusade Fleet list is from the Chaos section in Armada, the supplemental book for BFG:
Armada was also broken up into individula PDF files for each of the fleets and can be downloaded from GW's website here (along with all the BFG rules):
The Armada Chaos Fleet Rules are called BFG_Traitor_Fleet.pdf
Oh i see
I saw that in armada is this different to orriginal rules book and i wasnt sure which rule I should use. Thank you
