THLZ Episode 9: They Can Make the Mighty Fall.

Heavy Crusier's don't Care, Heavy Crusier's don't give a...

Myself, Peter, and eventually Jason the Bruce give our two cents on the Heavy cruisers in the game, and for the most part they are all good.  We also talk about Christoph Schult's UCM painting tutorial, and Robert Arciszewski sent in another Battle Report, and we cover some custom scenarios from CANCON and The First DutchDropfleet Tournament.

Ready Your Fleet... For Paint.

In a Galaxy of Grey, This Looks Awesome. 

Christoph Schult was kind enough to send us the painting tutorial he made for painting his UCM fleet. Check it out, I hope you learn something, and become inspired.

When I posted the first test pieces for this scheme I got asked to do a tutorial, so here is how to paint Battlefleet Vanadium:

THLZ Episode 8: The Slightly Dynamic Duo

If the Battleships are King, Battlecruisers are the Crown Prince.

We're back, and talking about battlecruisers, but due to real life it is just myself and Damion (Lysenis). These right now kickstarter exclusive ships can pack a punch and in this episode we tell you our opinion of much they pack. Damion (Lysenis) also gives you what information he can about the changes coming to the game.

Battle Report: PHR Vs. Shalthari 1250 Points

The both lists were different...

So on a fine Saturday in the past, The Post Human Republic moved into to orbit where they engaged an unsuspecting Shaltari fleet.  This game was played with Scenario 1: Take and Hold at 1250 points using the Rapid Response approach type.

This is my first attempt at a video battle report, myself and Will decide on the spur of the moment to record it. I am fairly happy with how it turned out both audio and video quality wise. Hopefully this will be the first of many.

Because Cardboard Is Silly

Dropfleet Tokens by Alex Barton 

Dropfleet commander; troop and defence laser counters for the UCM

I love the visuals of a game on the table and will try and escape card markers and tokens whenever possible, for DfC that's proved quite a challenge but I'm getting there!

THLZ Episode 7: Errata Has Arrived.

We had some questions, we got some answers.

Sooner than expected, we got an errata to the rules and some questions answered. Due to real life and some scheduling conflicts, it only myself and Jason the Bruce on this podcast, but that didn't stop us as we covered the errata and the questions that got answered. We cover CANCON some and we also  talk about Alex Barton's excellent troop and tank tokens he made.

Say Hello To My Little Friend

Is the Shaltari Diamond-class Battleship overpowered?   

          So I played my first game at 1750 points, using Shaltari. This was also my first time playing with a battleship. For this game I opted to use the Diamond. The other primary fire support for this was was an Onyx, Amber, Obsidian, Jet, and six Amethyst frigates. With a very similar profile to the Obsidian with three particle lances, but instead of having to go weapons free to fire three shots, the Diamond is able to do this on a standard order.
