I‘ve been using my Recusant as a flanker and whilst setting up my Mar Tuuk list I was a bit pushed for points. After investigating, I found that if I used a Star Frigate with ET’s I could shave 3 points off as below: -
Munificent Star Frigate (73)• Engine Techs (8)• Thermal Shields (5)• Tide of Progress XII (2)= 88 Points
Each has throt good and bad points (continual nav on the SF to utilize double arcing springs to mind) but I believe the Thermal Shields would provide a better dividend than the two extra hull (plus 1 extra shield at the front On the SF).
I tried it out in my last list (I actually had Sa Naloar as the title but didn’t get to use it) and it performed great! Nose to nose with an Acclimator and it easily came off best.
Does anyone else agree or is Patriot Fist the best choice?
