    Starting bfg with friends

    Me and my friends are starting up a little bfg group, but since were new i think we will all have some questions. for now though its just mine, and a few others. Thanks for any help you can give us.

    First, the necron reroll, is that effective at any point value?

    Second, with everything downloadable of the net, is it worth getting armada for only the few thigns needed?

    This one is sorta tied to the last one: what changes were made from the necron fleet list located at the us bfg page currently to the armada book on necron victory points? Is it big enough of change to really affect games if i dont use the new set?


    OK, I will post more questions as they arise. thanks for your help.

    Welcome to the best game GW ever made!

    First, the necron reroll, is that effective at any point value?
    Do you mean the Reactive Hull save that Necrons have instead of shields? Yes, that's active at all points values. The only time something wouldn't be active is if it explicitly states the fact.

    Second, with everything downloadable of the net, is it worth getting armada for only the few thigns needed?
    As far as I know, even Armada is completely on the Specialist Games site right now. Myself, I greatly prefer having physical copies of the books. That, plus it's kinda nice to buy one book and have 2/3's of the game's fleets in it (as opposed to each codex or army book being a single race for GW's other games).

    This one is sorta tied to the last one: what changes were made from the necron fleet list located at the us bfg page currently to the armada book on necron victory points? Is it big enough of change to really affect games if i dont use the new set?
    I don't believe any changes were made - the stuff you're downloading off the BFG site are direct scans of the Gothic and Armada books.

    Thanks for your help. And towards the reroll, Im taking about the reroll fleet commanders get, but the fleet list for necrons doesnt say if it needs to be a certain point value first, like for other armies.

    My bad! No, there's no minimum or maximum points values for rerolls - the minimums for other races are due to their commander's rank, not the reroll, and Necrons don't have commanders!

    I'd suggest against using so many Hulks/Roks. They're terribly slow for what they can do. Plus, a Hulk is 600 points! Leave them out until you get to lists near 2000pts or more (For a comparison: Imperial Battleships are 300-400pts, and I won't use one until 2250 games).

    A better Ork list would concentrate on cruisers and escorts, with maybe a battleship and/or a couple Roks thrown in. A good bit of advice is for every cruiser (or larger vessel), include one squadron of 3-5 escorts - this goes double for Orks, who have slow capital ships of every type, and fairly good (and cheap) escorts.
