    Well I mean I got 1 Shaltari Cruiser Sprue from the Kickstarter and was wondering if I should bother building it to try to do Skirmish stuff with the 4 frigates I have as well without doing landing stuff or make a Mothership for small scale skirmish games to get used to their tactics.

    We could also look into exchanging cruiser sprues if you wanted more for your own faction. I'm 100% on UCM, so the other 3 are mostly options for extra sales if I ever find the time/commitment to paint them to sell. <_< So since that's probably never happening they could have a good home if you were looking. :p

    Well I mean I plan to use most of them. I honestly don't know what faction I'd prefer, and my brother has shown interest in the UCM and possibly the PHR (and even if he hadn't I sort of like both as well)

    I'd say the mothership is the safest option just because you're going to want more drop anyway if you want to expand beyond the starter

    I'd need to get the Shaltari starter to make real use of it though right? I mean as is I'd have the Mothership, 4 frigates and a single Void Gate.

    Oh, yeah you would. Sorry I misread earlier and thought you had it already.

    One of the big problems for building Shaltari right now is that you get one voidgate per cruiser sprue and playing at higher points levels you'd want 12-14 of them

    Hmm, how viable are they for mid-tier play though? I don't that I'm interested in going Shaltari right away regardless since they seem like the most complicated faction. I think I should probably go with the Mothership regardless because with one I can try and play super low level games with the Shaltari just to see how they play.

    I'm trying to decide how I should build my final two Scourge Frigates. I decided on a Hydra for my extra cruiser, but I don't know if I should grab another two Harpies so I have four, or grab two Djinn so I can have two of each as well as the Gargoyles.

    When in doubt, more strike carriers.

    as for Shaltari after the last round of nerfs they seem...okay. I haven't played against or with them as much, but I do know that they tend to throw people for a loop because their mechanics are so different from everybody else.

  • Lord_AsmodeusLord_Asmodeus goeticSobriquet: Here is your magical cryptic riddle-tumour: I AM A TIME MACHINERegistered User regular
    So I could go two Djinn, two more Harpies, or one more Harpy and one more Gargoyle.

    They're the manufacturing wing of Troll Trader apparently

    Effecticly theyvtake over the logistics of production. And running a business and distribution and the guy who dies the rules and model designs gets to concentrate on just that.

    Turns out I actually had four extra frigates I could make. I'm thinking about what I should make for my small PHR detachment of 1 cruiser and 4 frigates. At least 2 frigates should be strike carriers at least but should I just go with the standard frigate loadout (2 "Regular" frigates 2 strike carriers)? If I do I still don't know what single cruiser would work best on its own.

    Dunno if anybody else is still paying attention to this thread, but DFC and DZC’s new owners (TTcombat) have finally added DFC/DZC stock up on their website, and included a lot of the con and Kickstarter exclusives for a limited time. They are doing a promo of spending £100 and getting free shipping.

    Yeah, this was definitely worth posting. I was looking earlier today because I thought it would be fun to buy the rest of the models I might want for a display fleet, and then I looked at the conversion rate for GBP to CDN and my heart sunk a bit. It'd be, like $190 after conversion and I'd quite probably get hit on import duties when they arrived. :(

    In case anyone is interested though, direct link: https://ttcombat.com/collections/dropfleet-commander

    If it helps, sounds like the distributor issue is mostly resolved so you should see it available in shops again soon
