I had been meaning to keep a record of my favorite fleets on the FFG Forums but I didn't get around to it. This was further hampered by the lockdown and the announced closure of the FFG forums.
The arrival of Armada v1.5 though means I will now spend some time updating my old fleets to the new rules, cards and point values. I'll put up a new fleet every week or three. Suggestions and comments are welcome and I may add the odd brief battle report once we get back to playing in person.
LIST 1: To kickoff we have a Screed fleet.
394/400, Surprise Attack, Asteroid Tactics, Infested Fields.
In Armada V1 I had Brunson on the GSD and a few more Aces including intel. In v1.5 OE and ACMs have been restricted but I kept them for their combination with the pair of HIEs. With the new evade rules - getting the crits to land against smaller vessels may need an extra crit (above Screeds auto crit) or and accuracy to ensure the ACM or HIE crit goes off. To help I added asphyxa Vader and some choke-able officers for a reroll and another from the CF tokens from the flotilla which can squadron Maarek & Jendon happily while still giving out tokens.
