    i might be getting the starter box soon if i can make my friend go halves with me so he can have the imp ships and i can have the chaos ships. tell me what you think of this 100pt fleet using the ships from the box plus a few extra ships.

    1xStyx(or a devastation?) 290pt
    2xCarnage 360pt
    1xMurder 170pt
    4x Infidel 160pts

    what do u think? i tryed to range the different weapons as much as i could i still tossing up between the styx and the devistation. is the extra 2 fighter/bomber squads worth it? the devastation is way cheaper and has more fire power. it's a bit of a toss up.

    I would actually prefer a Hades to Styx, it costs less points and I have heard they are good. I do not really like launch bays, haven't used any in games so far.

    thx the problem is though if u dont have some fighters/bombers you have nothing to counter attack with if your oponent lets some loose. i think i might go for the devistaion then which has less fighters and more firepower.

    I agree....I've never played a game without something of each type of weapon. I'd never go into battle with at least a couple launch bays, cause then I'm very vulnerable to ordnance. But if it works for you strewart, have at it.

    I like the Styx, but a lot of players don't. It is very expensive for a cruiser, and many complain that its overpriced. But, I'd say if you're going to take only one carrier-capable ship, make it the Styx. If you were going to have two carriers, choose 2 devastations. I wouldn't recomment a Styx and Devastation together, but hey, odd combos can work extremely well.

    Just remember that you're only starting out and will likely only play a few cruiser skirmishes. Make up whatever fleet you like for whatever reasons you like. Play with it, and learn what you want to add and what play style you like best. I have seen fleets where every non-escort is a carrier, and I have seen fleets with no carriers whatsoever. They both work...it depends on the player.

    Hmm... I think it works for me because my opponents do not use launch bays either. I simply do not like them, but once I and my opponents get to know the rules better I might try them.
