Re: Noble Armada: Hazat

Hmm, with a fleet based around a Trafalgar, I would say Immortals. However, I wouild back them up with Escorts and Galliots! After recent battle I agree with the Immortals, but galliots? going rigth off them :). Miss with the flipping grapple guns and they keep going past their targets, by the time...

Re: Noble Armada: Hazat

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go for a Trafalgar carrying a mix of fighters and Immortals I'm using the Hazat as the French fleet, originally I had the Hazat lined up to be the Japanese but decided the Kurgan were a better match (their martyr fighters will make excellent kamikazes!) and then ...

Noble Armada: Hazat

I'd like some opinions plase. At some point in the future I'm planning on purchasing a small Hazat squadron based around a Trafalgar class carrier. I would like opinions on which is a better option for boarding actions 1. 6 x Immortal Boarding Shuttles, 2 troops each, no grappling roll needed, may r...

Noble Armada: easier to hit big ships?

A thought crossed my mind. At the moment large ships (higher hulls) are harder to hit as well as mounting more powerful weapons. I wondered about reversing this to make smaller ships harder to hit instead. In the RAW your attack die has to equal or exceed a ship’s hull score to hit, then you roll fo...

Re: If you could change the Vargr, how would you?

I've toyed with the idea of the Droyne/Ancients visiting in historic/prehistoric times and that our image of the devil as winged and scaley comes from them

Re: Future of 2000AD Gaming

Do you mean pre-painted plastic minatures (like the modern Battlefield Evolution figures)?

For someone like me who isn't really into the painting scene this would be a bonus

Re: Call to Arms: Noble Armada--Clarifications?

By all means roll burn out or slow weapons together. Don't roll non-burnout ones together. Now this leads me to ask a question: Slow weapons ignore shields, no problem there I've taken it that a burn-out weapon that hits an active shield takes down the shield but doesn't cause a hit to the ship its...

Trillion Credit Dynasty

Just curious (and lazy, having read neither TCS nor Dynasty yet), is there a straghtforward way of concerting a Dynasty's military capability into a budget for TCS?

Re: After Action Report: Noble Armada

In retrospect the best tactic for the stealths would have been to close as quickly (All Power to Engines) and have two or three of them try to swamp the Hawkwood destroyer with boarders. But it was a good and fun learning experience Foxphoenix, it never crossed my mind to photo the battle, will do s...

After Action Report: Noble Armada

I got into Call to Arms: Noble Armada last year. I saw painting up the figures, learning the rules and fighting some battles as my X-factor project (something to do while my wife watched X factor on Saturday night). To my surprise I found I enjoyed painting the models (something I loathed as a kid) ...

Movement: Noble Armada

Just wondering if we've read the rule book wrong: The book states: When nominated to move, every ship must be moved a distance in inches between its Speed score and half this amount. All movement must be in a straight line forward. I've taken this to mean that ships must move at least half their mov...

Re: Noble Armada: Multihit

And just to follow up:

weapon is multihit 2, target has one active shield

1 attack die succesfullt hits

does the single shield stod the attack dice (and thus both hits) or just 1 of the 2 hits from the multihit special ability?

Thanks in advance
