    Yeah, that looks pretty good as it currently stands. You have enough cruisers, and the fleet is of a sufficient size to field the battleship.

    The one area you are quite weak in is escorts. It would be a good idea to get a few more of these:

    - Cobras. Great for shooting torpedoes across the enemy battle line, good for flanking to get good angle for torpedo fire and a cool looking little ship. You need to be careful not to expose them to too much return fire as they die quickly (4+ armour). In a fleet the size of your I would have around 3 squadrons of 3-4 vessels.
    - Sword and Firestorm. Great to guard the vulnerable rear of you larger ships. Also useful for filling holes that open up in your battle line, providing some extra direct-fire punch to compliment your cruisers, or chasing after crippled enemy vessels to finish them off. I prefer Swords, but firestorms can be useful. I would get another squardon of 4-6 of either of these ships.

    If you were to get any more cruisers I would suggest another Gothic and another Tyrant. Gothics compliment Lunars very well and Tyrants are very useful when fighting Eldar. You would also benefit from another Dauntless - I love these speedy cruisers. Take a look at my post in this thread for a few tactical snippets.


    "Praise" for rp252:
    Da Mighty Camel:
    No, for your information, rp252 is lonely because he is hideous
    Behind his ugly bloodthirster face, there's some wisdom stored away for moments like this.
