Dropfleet Commander – Battlegroup Typhon, Task Force Theta 

So a few months ago I received my Kickstarter pledge for Dropfleet Commander from Hawk Wargames, and shame on me I’ve been letting my fleet sit in space dock.
But no more, we’re pulling the Fleet out of mothballs and powering up the main reactors.

It’s taken a couple of days but I’ve finished magnetising my UCM cruisers. Currently Battlegroup Typhon, Taskforce Theta consists of:

• 1 Avalon class Battlecruiser 

• 2 Heavy Cruisers chassis 

• 2 Cruisers chassis 

• 2 Saratoga Class light cruisers 

• 8 Frigate chassis 

I’ve been lacking in games so far (with only about 2 under my belt), all the games I’ve played so far have be at the Skirmish level (lists up to 999 points).
The last game I played I used the following list:

————————————–Ucm 1000 – 981pts

UCM – 3 launch assets
SR12 Vanguard battlegroup (241pts)

1 x Moscow – 163pts – H

2 x Taipei – 78pts – L

SR12 Line battlegroup (250pts)

2 x New Cairo – 176pts – M

2 x Lima – 74pts – L

SR8 Line battlegroup (228pts)

2 x New Orleans – 64pts – L

1 x Seattle – 132pts – M

   + UCM Captain (20pts, 2AV)

1 x New Orleans – 32pts – L

SR11 Pathfinder battlegroup (242pts)

2 x Rio – 210pts – M

1 x New Orleans – 32pts – L

For a tournament level (Clash level) list of 1250 pts I have the Avalon Battlecruiser and an unbuilt cruiser and frigate sprue, as well as the ships meantioned earlier for me to play with to get me up to the 1250 pts level.


Out of the remaining Cruiser and Frigate sprue I have I cant decide what to build. Do I want an extra Seattle class carrier, or another Rio class cruiser, or even a San Fransico from the Cruiser sprue? And for the Frigate sprue do I want more Strike Cruisers or Attack Frigates? Currently I’m thinking of adding 1 Strike Cruiser and 3 of the Attack Frigate chassis.
Ahh hell, I think I’ll just magnetise the lot and be done with it.

If you happen to have a 1250 pts UCM list, why not share with myself so I can give it a whirl.

Until next time, I’ll see you at the table.
