Welcome to Librarium Online!
im currently looking at messing around with a few lists at 1500pts
the first is
2x mars class battle crusers
this still leaves me with 200pts at the moment props going to spend it on a standard adrmil and 2 extra reroles
thing is im trying to come up with anough cruser oriantated list which isnt
and som torpido bommers
its actuly kinda hard to do
ive got to a pair of dominators, and a pair of lunas but as things stand its looking prity similar to the above list any surgestions
MY main issues with the first list is the number of Nova cannons its just too many and will be considered cheesy

Yeah, I kinda agree.
A bit ov variety would go a long way in making the game better for you and your opponent, why not mix up one mars and a couple of cruisers with others?
swap a dictator for the 2nd mars to still keep the launch capability (and put them in the same squadron to make reload orders easier) maybe a tyrant and a overlord?
Swapping one cruiser for a Dauntless (lance is far better and you need some) and you could squeeze in a squadron of escorts
- It'd be better for modelling, parts (err you'll need 4x extra sets of extra weapons to do the original list, maybe you've got them spare but I'd s##t kittens trying to do that.)
- It'd be better for painting r.e versatility, and
- It'd be better for the game with more variety, and you'd be more versatile with, well not just side batteries and novas. Lances vs high armour ships are needed, or being able to not have a gaping blind spot in front of you at short range - turning first to ensure your gun batteries can come to bear makes a bit of a shame of your prow armour being 6. You're very slow and ponderous too. And fairly chalk board manuvering too.
That's my two cents.
p.s. re-rolls are worth every penny, get as many as you can (if not playing a campaign)

right ive had a game with this list
apart form some increadbly jammy roling on the side of some bombers i diceded i didnt realy like the fleet, as much dammage as a squadren of 2 dominaotos can pump out at 15cm whilst on lock on
on the point about dauntlesses whilst on paper i realy like them i find them far far two flimsy particuly at the moment i seem to be comming up against ordinace spam fleets
i have however had anouther idea
Blech, what is your group like? Ordnance spam! belchhmnddd.
Anyway, 6NC is non fluffy but beatable and I have no problems with it.
The Dauntless is good if used good. Add another Dauntless or a squad of Firestorms. Hold back and then at the right moment: SZZING.
Your 2nd fleet looks okay enough to me. Too few escorts though.
yes most of my group are ordinace spammers and you fleet simply wont survive if you cant pump our at least 8 fighters a turn to slow the bombers/assult craft down
I had a game last week with the second fleet list and it preformed admrably against an ordinace spam list and tactics where develped to deal with some proplems of the ordinace spam
i agree that a squadren of dauntless if yoused well can be very efective, three going though an astaroid feild and cripling a mars and a dictator has endired me to them some what but they do have a rather nasty happet of giving away vps to the majoraty of the people i play against same with escorts
of the two fleets the second is a lot more fun and reliable
Your group does play with the ordnance limits, right?
I am just glad my group ain't as bitchin.
Also, spam back :
3x Explorer, 2x Hero, 9x Orca, 3x Defender
