BFG 2010.03.25 & Fleet Builds

So we played BFG last night and I think everyone enjoyed themselves. For those that have not built their Imperial or Chaos cruisers, one way to decide which cruiser to build would be to consider which battleship you might want in the future. It will be highly unlikely to field more than one battleship in a game. Thus if you want a carrier as a battleship, build no more than one cruiser as a carrier. If you want a gunship as your battleship, then at least one, if not two, of the cruisers should be carriers.

Chaos have 3 battleships available: the Despoiler (carrier), the Desolator (gunship), and the Planet Killer (gunship)
Imperial Navy has 5 battleships available: the Emperor (carrier), the Retribution (gunship), the Apocalypse (gunship), the Oberon (gunship-carrier mix), and allied Space Marine Battlebarge (gunship-carrier mix).

Necron, Tau, Corsair Eldar all only have one battleship choice.

New Morgul and Swan Knight Minis

So this is either a command pack or they will have options for a horn blower/musician and a banner bearer.

On a further note, other things that are to appear soon:
Blackroot Vale Archers
Ruins of osgiliath terrain kit (whoops aristo)
Faramir captain of osgiliath

Also, the source books will be going direct only. So pick them up in a store now and save on the shipping.

LotR Heroes & Evil Shooting

Two thoughts.

1. Heroes work best in pair, especially when one is a strong fighter and the other a supportive hero.

2. To counter higher fight value models by outnumbering, it only works with increasing shooting, i.e. shooting is the counter to fight.
