Corribra Sector List
« on: March 07, 2013, 07:15:07 PM »
BFG has had, over the years, a few lists published in 'official' materials that were never made 'official'.  Due to all the talk about the Bakka list again, I figured I'd break out a few of the old apocryphal lists, starting with the Corribra list from Planet Killer (granted with clarifications/changes from the old Corribra website).


Battleships:

Emperor
Retribution
0-1 Nemesis

Battlecruisers
Mars
Jovian
Overlord

Cruisers:
Tyrant
Gothic
Dictator
Lunar
Dominator
Dauntless
Siluria

Escorts:
Firestorm
Sword
Cobra

For those not familiar with the Nemesis fleet carrier, it's a battleship with 12 lbs.

You are not TOO far off.  it's a 400 point battleship as stands atm.  She's a 1 per list beast with the usual +5 armor and 15cm movement (+1ld).  Other than Lbs she just has a str 3 dorsal lance.  Like the Jovian she's monstrous as a support ship, but in a straight up fight not as effective as, say, a Victory or Apocalypse.

A vessel for people with an attack craft fetish.

I have the scenarios for Corriba somewhere printed and stored iirc. Didn't Nate write them up?

The one's in Planet Killer were written by Matt Sprange, IIRC.

My ears are tingling  ;D

Funny, I actually have one of these (slowly) getting put together right now.

People need to learn how to play gunnery. ;)
4-6ac per 1500pts is where it's at for Chaos/In ;)

Sorry, Horizon, some of us are more fans of the Battle of Midway than the Battle of Tsushima.

There is nothing wrong with having fleet lists that have an affinity for attack craft, GW Tau are a great example. I would say that if a reasonable, balanced fleet list can be created that shows a focus towards AC then why not go for it? I do believe it will be more difficult than say bakka since most of the IN is focused towards gun ships.

Don't get me wrong, in a Tau fleet I'd midway it all over you ;)

It is just I prefer guns for IN/Chaos.

Honestly, I agree. Gun battles have such interesting tactics compared to AC battles.

If desperate escort fights to screen the carriers and maneuvering to keep away from faster chaos and Eldar ships with your carriers is not interesting, you're doing it wrong.

I know i will win the "necromancy award" with this, but:


BFG has had, over the years, a few lists published in 'official' materials that were never made 'official'.  Due to all the talk about the Bakka list again, I figured I'd break out a few of the old apocryphal lists, starting with the Corribra list from Planet Killer (granted with clarifications/changes from the old Corribra website). [...]

So, this thread included, these are the IN lists i know:

- BlueBook + Armada (Gothic Sector, Armageddon Sector, bastion Fleets.....)
- Warprift (Battlefleet Kar Duniash, The Gilded Fleet of Voss, Grand Fleet of Hydraphur)
- Battlefleet Bakka
- Battlefleet Corribra


Are there more out there?
