In the rule book, some of the ships state that certain named ships can get upgrades for + or - a certain points cost.
The thing that confuses me however, is it only states those upgrades for certain names Gothic fleet ships.
This maybe a silly question, but I'll add it to the FAQ once its answered, but does that mean those upgrades can only be taken for those named ships?
Or is it ok to give those upgrades to your ships too, as long as you pay the points for them?
I'd say that it is ok to give them to any ship. I can't see the point of only being able to give upgrade X to ship Y. At the end of the day it makes no difference rules-wise whatsoever. Of course, you will find some rules lawyers out there who will demand that you rename your vessel in order to take the upgrade. I see them more as different "marks" if the same design. Therefore you can just say, "Yeah that is the X-type Lunar class, not the normal Y-type."
The one place a see it causing a problem involves the Foebane, a Chaos Retaliator class grand cruiser. In the fleet entry it states that the Foebane has improved thrusters for no increased cost - not the Retliator class as a whole (have a look at the traitor fleets pdf on the SG website). Are we to assume this means all Retaliators have the improved thrusters (it costs no more points after all) or just the Foebane? I would say every ship, but I'm sure others will think differently.
So, personally I would say that the upgrades can be applied to any vessel, regardless of name - it would just be silly to restrict it in that manner. However, you will likely find some who disagree...
Thanks for clearing that up. I won't be putting names on the bases anyway, as I think it will ruin the star like speckles on the base.
So if it came down to it I'll just cross it out on the paper.
Something to place in the FAQ then?
Just a consenting opinon with rp252 here. I've never seen or heard of anyone having issues with taking named ship-specific upgrades on other ships of the same class.
The Foebane issue, I'd actually never noticed that one (not being a Chaos player myself), although chances are I've run across fleets with one or three of these upgraded at once :rolleyes: Honestly, though, I wouldn't worry about it overmuch. Chaos is fast, so a slight increase on one class isn't gonna ruin my day.
Yeah, I think this would be a good one. Its a question I have been asked numrous times and which can be answered once and for all in the FAQ.Originally Posted by Toastee
I have no problem with the name thing, it would suck to see everyones ships with the same names merely for a free upgrade.
