  1. Exactly that , hint: "we all live in a..."
  2. My RoF are finally complete after waiting for a long time on my skimmers to arrive, here are some pictures: I also had a friend cut some flight stands indicating the plane type and unit strength, very handy to have And of course we did not forget to give the skimmer thrusters a nice finish Now this chapter is closed it will be time for me to start on my submarine fleet. Regards, Mortaal
  3. I believe the Cherbourg deserves a spot in this list.
  4. In my games they survive longer, as well as bringing 5ap each for boarding purposes is great for late game assaults imo
  5. This battle report makes me want to build my KoB sub force even more, perhaps trying something gimmicky with flanking of the vanguards to make a nasty surprise ramming force
  6. Or going with 4 Alma's to do the screening worked great for me so far, as well as leaving more space in the medium section for Toulons and the likes of those
  7. Tbh, I would not put the Cherbourg forward, and hide the requins behind your magenta until boarding. This is because they are big threats if left undamaged, and as the cherbourg is our most powerful lance ship for it's cost it probably will get targeted first of all ships.
  8. Oh wow this is amazing would love to learn how you did this so I can make my own!
  9. Oh yes please, a writeup would be great!
  10. I do not know if you mean if it is as squishy as a small? Because it is classed as a medium in the pdf
  11. "Medium naval Diving Model" v1.3 RoF
  12. Just using a handsaw and cutting horizontally does the trick Here some more pictures with finished Couronne and Cherbourg: Now just waiting for my attack Flotilla and Alma's to arrive to finish my fleet Regards, Mortaal
  13. Just to look at the french possibilities without their heat lances: Saint-Malo - mine control gen Saint-Malo - mine control gen 3x Epaulard 3x Epaulard 4x Alma 4x Alma 5x fighter planes 5x fighter planes 1000 points Loads of corrosion, spotting capability and mine field defense lines
  14. Alright, how about: Vengeance 3x Bastion Vengeance 1x Bastion Vengeance 1x Bastion 3x Vanguard 2x Vanguard 5x Valliant To be honest, this list does feel pretty nice, as well as balanced and defended against SAS.
  15. Could the bastions not protect the dominions from small & medium fire at the start?
  16. Great information all! Thank you The bastion is indeed a very clever addition to deal with air support, and could even fill out the smalls department (or does the minimum small requirement go for a non-attached squadron only?) What about the Dominion as an attachment for the Vanguards//Valliants by the way? They do seem to boost the firepower of those squadrons significantly (not even taking into account the target painters they have). How does this look for 1000 points: Vengeance 3x bastion Vengeance 3x bastion 3x vanguard Dominion - stoic 5x valiant Dominion - stoic 3x valiant Seems to cover quite some bases not sure what to do with the last 3 valiants though, perhaps choose something else for the remaining points, or split them into groups of 4/4.
  17. Looking at the strength of the Vanguards compared to the Valiants made me think of swapping 5 valliants out for a squadron of 2 more vanguard subs. Would that be better in the all sub list? Sub 2.0 Vengeance Vengeance Vengeance 3x Vanguard 2x Vanguard 2x Vanguard 5x Valiant Feels like more bang for the buck, but having only 5 smalls to go with makes me doubt this setup. Unless of course I put them in the Flanking force to protect them an extra turn or so, and make them come onto the board with some vanguards to have a nice ram/boarding lineup.
  18. Commodore edition rulebook: page 110 "Torpedoes can ONLY target models occupying the Water Surface", this should include Diving and Deep diving as well.
  19. This was just an idea popping up in my head, so I deffinitively have not thought about any other options at the moment although I guess in a 1 on 1 match I still have 2x5 fighter squadrons to hunt some SAWS or aerials. And indeed, perhaps adding some allies might be a great idea
  20. Admirals of the Britannian empire, I have recently gained an "itch" for a full submarine fleet. I have the question if this would be viable to play (mostly thinking in terms of multiplayer games), or if there are essential tools that submarines need to function to full effectiveness. My current list: Vengeance Vengeance Vengeance 3x Vanguard 2x Vanguard 5x Valiant 5x Valiant Even if it would be just for fun, I would love to paint this fleet (yellow as they should be ). Let me know what you think, and any tips and advice is more than welcome, Regards, Mortaal
  21. Update, now my boarders are also ready to go (they even almost captured a full AP Elbe in yesterday's game!) Regards, Mortaal
  22. Here are my "freed" SAS: Regards, Mortaal
  23. Hey guys, Here are the SAS for my french fleet enjoy. Regards, Mortaal
  24. Otherwise you could firstly paint the ships as you usually do, and after this add the camo stripes and line highlight those. It will be more time consuming but if done correctly it will look great. Regards, Mortaal
  25. Thanks all, the heat lances as well as the two-tone hull camo were done with an airbrush . I have more "glowy" stuff planned for the rest of my upcoming fleet (cherbourgs, Almas and La Rochelle) so stay tuned . Regards, Mortaal
