Five Point Raid

Postby mikelosaurus » Wed Jul 09, 2008 8:34 pm

So the requirements of the Sentient Rabbits event next month is five points raid, no more than 8 ships in total (not including fighters).

I can think of various combinations - does anyone have any advice as to whether one selection is any better than any others?

MINBARI
- 3 Tigara, 2 Leshath Heavy Scout
- 2 Tigara, 2 Ashinta, 1 Leshath Heavy Scout
- 2 Tigara, 1 Tinashi, 1 Leshath Heavy Scout
- 2 Tigara, 1 Morshin Carrier, 1 Leshath Heavy Scout
- 1 Morshin Carrier, 1 Tinashi, 1 Leshath Heavy Scout

ISA
- 5 White Star (is it really worth trying anything else?)

VORLON
- 10 Transports
- 1 Destroyer, 6 Transports
- 1 Destroyer, 4 Transports, 12 Fighter Flights
- 8 Transports, 12 Fighter Flights

I'm asking not just out of curiosity, but so I can make sure I can paint enough of the right models in time... ;)

For ISA I'd be tempted to try the following:
- 2x White Star
- 2x White Star II
- 4x Vree Ximm Escort

1 Destroyer, 4 Transports, 12 Fighter Flights this suggestion is nasty.
4 Whitestars + 4 bluestars

For the ISA take at least 2 Scout WS.

Hmmm.....Maybe try this fleet

3 Pak Halik
4 Pak Ikorta

Run it in 2 squadrons since you won't win initiative anyway.

You have only 8 Torps, but you ahve 40AD of Heavy Plasma Cannons forward, or 20 AD of AP DD Energy Mines.

ISA, 3-4 WS1, An allied carrier, for interceptors for your WSs, and the rest with BSs.
it really is the best way to do it.

And never underestimate the Liandra. It's a sleeper Skirmish ship.

Whenever I try to consider using the Liandra in a list, I have flashbacks to LotR. I don't think I'll ever bring myself to use it :?

its also a fairly unique situation - IIRC the ISa player only ever fights the Shadows and the Vorlons - 2 very different fleets.

also IIRC the Minbari can use White Stars as it is the "Army of Light?"

Any inclusion of Minbari or ISA puts you in the running for a cheese award :lol:

What about an ISA fleet without ANY white stars?

It wasn't that bad, just have to close your eyes everytime it goes into that weapons view :)
