I have IA10 and was curious how people regarded the loyalist list in it. Albeit i'm hardly experienced at all in BFG but the list seemed pretty broad, kind of 'take whatever you want' (in that you can take a retribution and any other battleship as well as battlebarges, any cruisers as well as strike cruisers and any escorts).

It definately is. I think it was made by people who don't really play BFG and with the explicit idea of grand fleet engagements, and for use only against the succesionists list.

And this is part of why I wanted to modify it for ASC 2.0

Im no fan of the list, or many of the ships for that matter ::).
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.

Looks like the military/semi-military ships from Battlefleet Koronus were picked up, but not the additional transports:

Carrack Class
Goliath Class factory ship (obviously a modified Mechanicus Ark, although the dimensions listed indicate it is a cruiser sized vessel)
Universe Mass Conveyor


Would like to suggest adding a complete selection of transports/factory ships from small to very large. As a new player I have not used transports yet, but have seen a number of convoy scenarios where different classes of transport ship might be interesting. Would also like to see them added for completeness and to expand the universe a bit, since there will obviously be a very wide range of transport sizes across the 40K universe (there is even one bigger than the Universe).

Basic transport: Existing GW or FW model
Heavy transport: Exisiting FW model
Light Cruiser sized transport (Carrack Class, as it appears to be based on an CL hull)
Imperial cruiser sized transport (not the Conquest Class Star Galleon which is a special case)
Imperial BB sized transport
Really big transport (Universe Mass Conveyor)
