Dindrenzi Mass SRS List?

Recommended Posts

I was looking over the new ships and how they might fit into a Dindrenzi fleet and came up with the following. A bit of a departure from the standard "Gun and Run" fleets we usually see and can in no way attest to it's effectiveness but could be a bit of fun and certainly something unexpected!

 

Tier 1:

Legion Assault Carrier: +3 AP, Remove Planetfall, Deck Crews, 6 wing Bomber Token, 1 Support Shuttle

 

Praetorian Battleship: +2 AP, +3 Wings, Launch Tubes, Assault Blitz, Deck Crews, HEK, 5 wing Bomber Token. Decurion Escort Carrier: 2 wing Interceptor Token, Fore Torpedoes

 

Falchion Carrier: +2 Wings, Deck Crews, 6 Wing Bomber Token, 2 wings Interceptors. Decurion Escort Carrier: 2 wing Interceptors (merge with the 2 from Falchion for a 4 wing token).

 

Tier 2:

3x Trident Destroyers: HEK, Scout/Hidden Killer as you choose.

 

Tier 3:

3x Threax

3x Thraex

3x Pugio

 

Gives you 17 Bombers all with Deck Crews, 6 interceptors and 1 support shuttle. Might be able to cut some upgrades to squeeze a decurion onto the Legion for an extra 2 wings of interceptors if you tried hard enough.

 

Thoughts?

Not enough Interceptors.

My play experience has taught me how important PD defense is in general, and how vital it is for Dindrenzi. With the lowest DR defenses in the game, and average PD stats, every point of damage makes you more and more succeptable to Torpedo plinking.

Further, while Bombers are sexy, Dindrenzi generally don't want to be close enough to use them. This list may work better with Fighters... Also, I assume you have 1200 points here, right?

Yeah 1200 points.

 

If you went fighters instead of bombers that might mitigate the lack of interceptors to a point. 17 of them isn't a small amount of PD, just doesn't have the 8" intercept range. I went with bombers purely because it would be an unexpected move to have a Dindrenzi list that gets up in your face early. Still have the initial T1/2 railgun shots from the bit T1s but after that they're actually a bit more comfortable than normal being in amongst it. 

 

Like I say, it's a purely theoretical list to see what kind of unusual combinations you can get using the new TF ships. Could lose all of the assault based upgrades from the Praetorian, HEK from the destroyers and the fore torpedo upgrade from the Praetorian escort and that would almost give you enough for a Decurion on the Legion so could swap out the support shuttle and take 3 more interceptors there. Would give you 3 interceptor tokens of 2, 3 and 4 wings. If you reserve the T3s for a flanking move and the destroyers stay at range they only have to cover the big T1s so should be enough coverage?

Look at it this way. 150 points gets you a Carrier with 2x4 interceptor tokens. Thats basically +8 PD for the entire Fleet, but it constrains your deployment and activation options. So add a Praetorian with 5 Interceptors for 230 points, adding another PD bubble.

Now you have two well-defended zones for 820 points of whatever you want... Maybe add that Legion, or trade our the Praetorian for a Retribution.

Falchion CV +2 wings = 8

 

add:

 

Decurion Escort CV 2 wings

 

Decurion Escort CV 2 wings

 

12 wings of awesomeness

 

The Legion can only take 1 Decurion Escort CV; that makes Pathogen sad.
