    Off the top of my head, don't you need 2 cruisers per heavy cruiser? so you need another cruiser for chaos.
    Sounds fairly cut and dry to me.

    There shall come a time,
    When one who has the heart of a Kilrathi,
    but is not Kilrathi born,
    Shall rain cleansing fire down upon us,
    and Kn'Thrak, a time of great darkness
    Shall embrace us.

    Yeah, but you posted 3 heavy cruisers, so you would need 6 cruisers, not 4.

    I've only got experience with Imperial Fleets, so I can't offer much advice on the other two for you. What are all the ships that you own? Knowing what to work with would be a little more helpful when offering advise.

    If I was a mod, I'd probably try to edit for you... But as I'm not, could you maybe work on your formatting? Most of that is rather hard to read.

    I'd try this 1500 point gun-heavy fleet for the Imperial. You've gone without an Emperor, so a carrier fleet won't work so well. So maybe something that capitalizes on the guns and maneuverability you have. With the escorts, you can lag behind and speed out for a flanking maneuver from behind your Cruisers, and with the Ret in there, you can All Ahead Full and smash into the enemy pretty hard with a cruiser squadron with this:

    BLOODHAWK: Retribution Class battleship - 365pts
    --Admiral (Ld9) 100pts

    Squadron 1:
    RETRIBUTION Lunar Class Cruiser - 180pts
    JUSTICAR Lunar Class Cruiser - 180pts
    SWORD OF ORION Gothic Class Cruiser - 180pts

    Squadron 2:
    ABDIEL Dauntless Class Light Cruiser - 110pts
    UZIEL Dauntless Class Light Cruiser - 110pts

    Escorts:
    PATROL GROUP ERINYES 4 Firestorm Class Frigate - 160pts

    RED SQDN 4 Sword Class Frigates - 115pts

    I'm not so good with Chaos, I'm finding, yet. So I won't try those.

    I have some ideas for the SM, though. I do have the Imperial Admiral's preference for a battleship and for squadrons, and I'm not sure how that works with SM. Keeping in mind you like to under-power them, this is a 1295 pt fleet:

    FANGS OF FENRIS Marine Battle Barge - 425pts
    --Master of the Fleet - 50 pts.

    Squadron 1:
    BLOOD CLAW Marine Strike Cruiser - 145pts
    WOLFS TOOTH Marine Strike Cruiser - 145pts

    Squadron 2:
    NIGHT HUNTER Marine Strike Cruiser - 145pts
    STELL PELT Marine Strike Cruiser - 145pts

    Escorts:
    ALPHA SQDN 4 Cobra Class Destroyers - 120pts

    BETA SQDN 4 Cobra Class Destroyers - 120pts

    Did you count the fact that he posted four Dauntless light cruisers, which count as cruisers? With those, he has about 8 cruisers in his list.

    Was referring to his Chaos list, not his Imperial list.

    Edit: Which I screwed up with anyways. Mis-read his battleship has a heavy cruiser for some reason, in which case is perfectly legal.

    The Imperial and SM lists have been covered very well by Rogoth, so I shall go ahead with the Chaos list. One thing I would like to know before I say anything though... Are these lists based on models you have already got, or are they based on models you are thinking of getting?

    Cheers,
    Rich.
