hi I'm looking to start 2 fleets
first a small Dark eldar
3 Torture Class Cruiser
10 Corsair Class Escort
and second this or eldar Craftworld fleet
1 Adeptus Mechanicus Battleship (main gun)
1 Adeptus Mechanicus Cruiser
4 Cruiser (any haven't made up my mind)
1 Adeptus Mechanicus Light Cruiser
1 Dauntless Class Light Cruiser (Lance)
1 Dauntless Class Light Cruiser (Torpedo)
12 Cobra Class Destroyer
any pointer would be excellent thanks
Okay, so lets see: What weapon options were you thinking of for the DE? If you havnt decided yet, its difficult to give advice (even if its just my own, really noobish advice ). In any case, DE seem to be a rather boring fleet to play, as the best tactic for them is to speed in, wreak as much havoc as possible, and disengage before the enemy can retaliate... But its just what Ive heard, Ive yet to play my first game...
Anyway, on to the next fleet... First, Im afraid the above is pretty much in effect here as well: Decide on what you what to get! Carriers? Gunships? Lances?
Second: The ships you chose arent allowed in the same fleet (no dauntlesses!). Or were you aiing at IN with Mechanicus Reserves? In that case, some shifting would be required (no AM battleship), etc. As it is, you seem to have gone for the models, rather than the rules (I not een sure how many points thatd be...). Just look at the rules if you havent already (available here:Battlefleet Gothic Resources | Battle Fleet Gothic Resources | Specialist Games Game Resources | Games Workshop , Download "Basic Rules", "Ships of the gothic Sector", and "Ships of Mars"), and THEN decide. If youre just after nice models, you wouldnt need to ask, would you?
I wont advise you o what list to take, though, as thatd need more knowledge of the game than I currenty posses...
I hope this didnt sound to harsh, please excuse me if it did... In any case, I hope this helps! And now for the Veterans to join in....

thanks for info on Dauntless will change for Endeavour Class Light Cruiser
(what best model?)
Actually, if you have 6 Ad Mech cruisers you may take 2 Imperial cruisers according reserve rules. Thus your list was legal in that way.
That AdMech Battleship is just porn on paper though. Model aint to bad either.
For actuall advise I'd say wright up a 1000pt list then a 1500pt list as you most likly go above that so any 'show' models can be bought last.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand

thanks for taking the time to reply and the info will do us you recommended since i haven't brought models any pointers will help.
I'm not to sold on the Ark itself. Too restricted (expensive Magos needed). I rather would take a Retribution, make sure to take the AWR upgrade...lovely.
When you take a gunship BB you should add at least one Dictator.
new possible lists changed to eldar
4Torture Class Cruiser
1 Impaler Assault craft
2 lance 920pts
Dread Archon +3 rerolls 200
14 Corsair Class Escort
7 with Mimic Engines 840pts
total: 1960 pts
1 Yriels Flagship +Eldar Hero 1 reroll 520 pts
4 Eldar Wraithship
1 with launch bay
3 torps 640pts
2 Eldar Dragonship
1 with launch bay
1 torps 520 pts
8 Eldar Shadow Hunters
all Battery 320pts
Craftworld Eldar. Take all out launch bays on Dragonships, not torps. Take all out torps on Wraithships. imo
Drop 2 shadowhunters. Take another re-roll. Add assault boats+ aspect warriors to a Dragonship, excellent anti-escort!
thanks for the help this fleet felt better and the tactics more to my likeing
and nicer models imho
