Details a Starhawk V to stand beside the Ronin.

 

 

Don't forget true believers, your Starhawk VI's have the ESM SA. That gives them a +1 when they fire their missiles.

I didn't do so hot at the tourney. I got beaten first by a force almost identical to mine then by another Terran force and finally by a force with both a Rhino and an Ogre.

 

Here's what I ran:

 

Thunderbird

+1 Rav

+1 Dv

+1 ECM

 

Starhawk 6 (x 2)

+1Rav

+1 Dv

+1 ECM

 

Starhawk 5

+1 Rav

+1 Dv

+1 ECM

 

1792 points.

 

One of the guys that beat me was Blitz so I didn't feel too bad about that. He had two Hawk 6's and two Hawk 5's and two Kikyu's. It came down to my wounded Thunderbird and his last Hawk 6 duking it out and his Hawk 6 won. How can you really feel bad losing to another Terran player who's also the guy who designed the Hawk 6 and T-bird. ::):

 

The terrain we fought on was pretty wide open and the rounds were timed so there wasn't all that much strategy and tactics involved. My dice weren't hot for me is all. None of the three games I played in the tourney was a slaughter, all were close and came down to one or two damage tracks really.

 

Oh well, my shot at redemption is coming up in a couple weeks at the RAC tourney. ::):

The Rach did well in case any of you terrans are looking for a sparring partner. It would seem that you fight amongst yourselves just enought to not get anything accomplished.

Nice Armor Platoon! :blink: Bummer that your dice weren't hot, that's how mine were the last time I played. <_< You guys played with all units getting +2 ECM correct? How bad did that bite into the Hawk 6's firepower??

It hurt some C8 but I can't say it was a deciding factor. I still got some missile crits. I would say that the deciding factor was the terrain being so barren and the short amount of time we had to do anything.

I know that spartan faced some newer players so he wasnt able to keep a rhythm going. He had to explain alot of the rules to his opponents.

 

I got lucky and played some experienced players.

I am not an experianced player but that didn't stop scrapping my force a while back. two games. Gald to see the dice aren't always with him, maybe I do stand a chance of winning a game.

Just added a new pic of a HawkV to the show off section. Think I've got a paint scheme that will look good on the table but not take eons to paint. With hope my UFF forces will be able to take the field soon.

Having new or inexperienced players across from you in a tournament is a killer. I couldn't keep the rhythm and once you have to stop and explain drift or how missiles work to your opponent in a tourney you may as well just be playing a demo. By the beginning of my second round I no longer cared wether I won it or not. There's no joy in beating someone because they don't know the rules.

Yeah, running straight at the other guy on open terrain with cold dice probably isn't a good thing. <_< It is good to hear that raising the ECM by 2 didn't take away to much of the Hawk 6's firepower.

On the flipside at least you are seeing new players... better to lose a tournament yet add two or three new people to the game, IMO.

If you could have any new units you wanted for the Terran forces what would it be?

 

By "new" do you mean which models not yet produced or units not on the roster?

Hmmmm... good question. I can't think of anything right now. Every time something pops into my head I think " Oh yeah... the so and so already does that..." :rolleyes: Although a tactical missile system like the Whisper would be kind of nice. Over all I think the UFF is pretty well rounded.
