I've been wanting to play BFG for some time, but I don't know anybody else who plays it. I'd probably start DE, tho the Eldar Corsairs and Chaos seem pretty tempting as well (Chaos also has plastic cruisers, which is a bonus).
DE ships are pretty interesting in that while they technically only have 2 ships, they can have extremely varied loadouts (while every other faction typically has one loadout for each ship). What's the best way to equip them, anyhow? From my understanding carriers are extremely powerful in BFG, so fighter bays would seem a good upgrade for the cruisers (tho they cost twice as much as lances and torpedoes).

At least one carrier to start with.

The lance cruisers are also great.

And as for escorts... well take your pic. Im probably going to run a few impailer modules to take on escorts and larger ships. As well as the lance ones... because they are dirt cheap... I would avoid the torpedoes tho, that seems to be the least used.

I will then convert a cruiser to be a lance cruiser. Because they have a very dedicated role. As for mimic engines they do not seem to be to popular, although I love the idea! And there is this other ship the Succubus class cruiser... that was done a while back that increases the DE options.

Ok. So a Basic List:

Torture with Basic Batteries (210)

Torture with Basic Batteries (210)

3 Corsairs (150)

3 Corsairs (150)

This is 720pts. Now, we will probably be playing 750pts to begin with, as this will prevent us having to get an admiral and what not... So, how would you equip the escorts? Because of the point limitations the carrier is off limits but I was considering some lances for one of the Cruisers.

I think I would split them up a bit, do atleast 2 but no more than 3 with Batteries, they are a clean up crew, or a softening blow, or even just bait, (either aiming to just shoot out ordinance (not really as likely) or try to remove shields for bigger boats). the rest, I'd say lances, torps arn't bad, but the check to reload hampers them imo. I know Shadow is big on the impaler, but I've never actually run that.

My normal list is a Carrier Cruser with 3 escorts (=250pts) and depending on how that is stacked out, I aim for 2 batteries on the escorts, and Lances after that (3 Lance Escorts, Unlocked Carrier, 1 Lance Escort, 2 Batteries, Unlocked Carrier, etc...)

Dark Eldar fleets are exceptional at boarding actions, you want to get in close and fast and and get boarding

Thanks for the comments!

Now, being restricted by the number of escorts is something that will take getting used to. But I will be using the 2010 compendium for the Dark Eldar... this introduces the Succubus class light cruiser as well, and decreases the cost of mimic engines (20 for capitols and 5 for each escort) this actually makes them a very viable option.

So, I am considering:

Carrier Cruiser 250 + Mimics

3 Escorts 150 Lances + Mimics

3 Escorts 150 Impailers + mimics

Succubus 140 + Lances 10

This will allow for 750pts and a good variety of ordinance, the impailers for a crippling first turn strike vs an enemy capital ship and the lances on the succubus as a mop up crew.

Well at least thats what I am originally thinking.

I have seen the succubus' stat line somewhere before but I am unfamiliar with it honestly, in the end though, looks pretty solid to me. Should make rolling up plenty of fleets easy, especially with mostly fleet wide mimics and impailers/attackcraft! Please post Battle reps when you get some games in! I would get back in the saddle and through some up, but life's been crazy as of late Razz

Anyway Good Luck and Happy New Year

Where are the rules for the Succubus-class cruiser? I've read the 2010 compendium but it doesn't include Dark Eldar ships, other than DE being able to use the Eldar starbase and most of the Eldar refit table.

It's in BFG:R that I've seen the Succubus. Have to have a google account to see it.

And to the right there's a link "BFG Revised Documents", then log into your google account and find the DE document.

Hey im new to battlefleet and i was reading the fleet book. It states that dark eldar do not have to pass a comand check to come to a new heading. Does this mean that we can use another order (such as relode ordinance) in the turn we use come to a new heading?
