The Relthoza spiders were my first entry point into the FSA universe, so I’m used to them and I’ve never had a problem with how they play in terms of seeing them as “difficult”.
Newer Post Older Post Home. From how the Falx fares in battle, the Sorylians would undoubtedly have been working to cover some of its shortcomings. It has, however, an advanced shunt matrix to allow itself to reposition whilst cloaked, meaning the enemy can never predict where the ship will suddenly appear, it’s alien weaponry tearing ships apart from inside before fading away into blackness.
The Broadsides are extensively expanded, and the aft weapons systems removed to accommodate the power generation requirements of the fore firestor.

With a fast, hard-hitting battleship, what other class could a multi-part model make that would fit with Sorylian lore, and fill a role in their fleets? Rather than give them a ship that did the same as other races, they would deal with this by xrmada this threat. The Sorylians firestofm not natural fliers, and they tend to field SRS principally in dedicated carrier vessels.
Well one area the Sorylians do lack is in the area of mines – they simply do not use them. So, here they are:. The Grand Council have recognised that the tactics of other races, especially the Relthoza who are capable of fielding large quantities of SRS at any engagement level have exposed a potential weakness in the Collecxtive’s Sphere defences, below where fleet carriers such as the Xiphos are deployed.
It remains in the rear of the engagement, cloaked and often running silent to avoid detection as it unleashes nanotech-laced death from the depths of space. Now making a multi-piece model representing armadaa ships here is easy, firestom all you need for an Assault Carrier is a bit more armour and some more weapons – the launch bays and general configuration can be much the same. With AP, movement and Assault Blitz upgrades, the Cuirass becomes a very credible boarding threat in addition to its native direct AD potential, especially paired with a Katar Assault Cruiser.
The Relthoza have a good selection of options, and I love the feel of the faction. What do I mean? This has led the Relthoza to technological solutions — the introduction of the new nanospatial fireztorm weapon system in the Virulence gunship has proved successful and has been expanded to new fireztorm types. Now, the Tirestorm isn’t a bad ship, it just isn’t an equal counter to other Large ships it’s no dueller – so enter the Cuirass:.
The Sorylians, like the Relthoza, are excellent martial opponents, so the need for more means of delivering more warriors into the field is highly desirable, hence the development of the Atrax:.

The Sorylians and the Relthoza. This enables Fireztorm cover for smaller task forces, and boosts the abilities of larger vessels such as the Serapis – the latter is not configured for bomber operations, but coupled with 2 Pauldrons, it can field both bombers and assault shuttles, or provide interceptor cover etc.
Someone Daniel Jones asked on Facebook what ships people think we should have got for the core race expansions, so Fkrestorm thought I would share my own opinion firstorm with stats of what TheoryMachine think we should have had as a 2-Player boxed set. Once again, a single-purpose ship in this class is something Sorylian Engineers would wish to avoid, just minesweeping is not going to satisfy most Sorylian Commander’s thirst for combat.
We heard mention above of the Pauldron Escort Cruiser above, so let’s start there. This would also make it ideal to pair with a reserved Falx entering by foldspace for a heavy-hitting one-two punch in the early or mid-point of the game.
Next we have the Cryptos Destroyer, one of the most daring and advanced ships Relthozan technology has produced to date. The Cuirass class battleship is one of a new breed of designs that Sorylian Engineers started working on at the firestorj of the Seccession Wars, based on predictions of how the conflict firestoem escalate. The Twenty deem this a price worth paying for its potential rewards – after all, fresh young warriors are an easily replaced resource.

Here we have the Dysdera:. Take the Aquan Cruiser from the Taskforce Reinforcement boxes – you have a top and a bottom, plus another add-on for the Carrier version.
It also maintains a standard broadside weaponry to protect itself from flanking attacks should its cloak or shunt matrix be damaged, though most Cryptos crews pray that these are never to be used, as it is not a ship designed for an honest, even fight. This has been done elsewhere like Deadzone – you include a set of cards that allow you to play against an AI-Pathogen fleet.
The Serapis also retains some of the innovation and options that ifrestorm Cuirass introduces, such as a reinforced fore armadw sector shielding:.
Commonly fielding assault shuttles amada packed with warriors, these ships are relatively cheap and fast to construct, relying on stealth and cloaks to get to their prey and seize them. More inhabitable worlds to colonize. It retains the ability to use its Kinetic and Torpedo weapons even with this profile, so it is not a passive approach, meaning that when it arrives in optimum firing position it is likely to be doing so at full or close to full HP, making it a very potent early-game ship the enemy cannot afford to ignore, especially armaa also accompanied by Flechettes to further enhance its firepower.
Although the recent conflict in the Storm Zone has drained Sorylian forces and allowed the Relthoza firestorn make gains, these are relatively minor and have not allowed for the large scale footholds the Twenty had hoped for.
Such is the power drain from this new cloak, however, that it cannot use weaponry whilst it is engaged and even if it could, to do so would reveal it’s location to targeting sensors. In a similar manner with the construction of the ships in this set, you could have a pathogen bottom that would fit the Aquan top, giving you yet another iteration of the ships.
I’ve never really had too much of a problem with the Brood Battleship, fitestorm a solid ship. It also reduces the range of any installed battle shunt drive generator – the fidestorm requirements for more would simply be impractical to accommodate without a major hull redesign and expansion.
As such, we have the Flagellant:. With typical Sorylian practicality, the Pauldron also retains offensive armaments to ensure it remains viable even on losing its complement of on-board craft. It is also possible to take a pair of Pauldron Escort Cruiser firrestorm further expand and add flexibility to its SRS complement.
The Bolas is a stand-off torpedo cruiser designed to provide long-range support to advancing fleets.
