Re: Naval-type Starships designed by BeowulfJB

Since Beowulf is often an opponent of mine, I made a 700pt WW2-era BB based on my Italian Littorio class mini. Ship name: Stella Roma (700) Italiano Littorio-class Battleship Tech: Engines +2; Shields +2; Weapons +2 Shields: 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Screens: 29-28-27-26-25-24-23-22-21-20-19-18-17-16-15-14-13...

Re: Countermeasures: worth it?

Interesting.

One level may not be worth it, but several could be. Maybe I'll work on an example or two of such later.

But you roll so many 6s would let you still get a lot of rerolls.

Re: Countermeasures: worth it?

Oh, by the way, since I'm designing a few ships based on Italian WW2 ships, I looked but could not find a reverse option for the Engines. :D

Countermeasures: worth it?

In short, no. That system is too expensive, better to buy more Hull or Screens (why did you change the name from Armor?) I designed a ship to fit my Italian Littorio-class BB miniature and set a goal of 700 points to match Beowulf's 700 point Arizona class, the primary opponent in the near future (o...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

For now, however, it has a 0.7 multiplier and works as follows: at the end of each move, if the seeker flight does not impact its target, its IMP is reduced by 1. When reduced to 0, the flight is removed from the game. Thanks! I can add it myself. Is it ranged based? The spreadsheet has a column fo...

Oh. So it has been thought of, good.

But I really don't want to buy another book for some design options. Maybe I'll just stick to flying Klingons as I got lots of miniatures of those, just a few Romulan ships.

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

I'm not liking the seeker save chart much. That looks to be new to Starmada. But without it, I wouldn't bother using the Plasma Torpedo I mentioned previously as it would be too easy to take down and definitely less intimidating than the big ball of plasma coming towards you (remembering the scene f...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

Thanks for listening and replying. Our battles here, between Beowulf and myself mostly, with our longer ranged weapons than those in the book (we go with 18, where as I see a lot of range 12 & 15 in the book), tend to be at medium range a lot more than long. Usually one turn is at long and sever...

Re: Unity: Seeking Weapons deployment Limits?

That's not how a lot of the real gaming world works. Min-maxing is part of competitive play and miniatures gaming is very competitive It’s about what you enjoy. Some people really enjoy the challenge of out-designing their opponents and the cat-and-mouse of design/counter. I don’t. I would rather b...

Let me see if I understand this; the Kizinti use seekers, conquer the galaxy and all become... cat-food :!: :P <LOL> PS: I posted the BB with Mdl in the 'Basin Have you read any of the Man-Kzin Wars books?
