For me I'll be building the following Cruisers:
- Basilisk Battlecruiser - because it's special and invisible and all that...
Chimera Troopship - as games get bigger, I'm pretty certain I'm going to need to drop more troops in larger quantities.
Hydra Fleet Carrier - the limit placed on launch assets tells me that they are quite good, also, I discovered against Matt that I will really need a bit more of a ranged threat.
In terms of the smaller ships I'm looking at:
- 2 Scylla Frigates - these are the shooty uppy ones and look fun to try.
2 Charybdis Frigates - these provide the only bombardment capability in the Scourge fleet and so seem necessary.
2 Djinn Frigates - these just look fast and nasty.
2 Gargoyle Strike Carriers - again, this game is about landing troops, so I'll need the ships to do this.
3 Nickar Corvettes - I should have the bits to kitbash these, as I want to give them a try.
This should give me plenty to mix and match with in early games and free me out what I like and what I'm missing, so I can add stuff when my traded stuff arrives.
So, what are your initial thoughts?
