(That was a nice read , your battle reports are swift and to the point and still vivid and fun to digest.)

What models are you guys using for the ghostkeels?

yeah, great batreps and test games, I need to get more games in, I've been lazy and playing gargants a lot lately

I'm keen to get some more test games in over the summer, are there any aspect of the list that still need stress testing? is it worth trying an all-heavy suit list (with the minimum pathfinder choices to unlock support slots of course) and seeing how it gets on when riptides are spammed? if only to allay the fears of some of the community ;)

Thanks guys! I appreciate the compliments on the reports, although to be honest it comes from a place of not remembering each little detail haha. When we get to the march for 18, I'll switch over to more turn by turn reports to allow for more analysis.

Ghostkeels are older metal forumware. I've seen some more recent proxies from thingiverse that looks pretty good as well.

For stress testing - I'd try six heavy suit formations. One formation has 4 to serve as the BTS. And I'd go with 3 or 4 pathfinders depending if I'd also want a razorshark or extra markerlights. I think the most glaring downside is no Shas'o, but with six formations activating on 1+, maybe that's not a huge loss.

Ive found a model on Thingiverse I’m gonna try as a ghostkeel, but roughly what size would you put it at? 20mm? 28mm ? I’m using Onslaughts models as crisis they are around 20 mm , and ghostkeels are supposed to be slightly bigger right?

Yup! Bigger than a broadside, smaller than a Riptide.

Looking for feedback on the Supremacy Suits statline comparison from 3BP to the 4x4+/5+. Has anyone had a chance to take this out for a test drive or have any discussion to raise regarding the new? From my perspective, this is the last issue to resolve before accumulating the necessary 18 bat reps for approval.

I have faced the sup with the new stats. (never with the old) It is a distraction nothing more. Next time I face one I would ignore it.

A distraction when list building, as what do you give up activation/points wise for a totally static asset? A distraction for your opponent, as in your wasting away activation on what is not going to kill you. Smashing or containing the riptide sized suits is more important.

In a post a while back CarlixT mentions the Manta isn’t listed among the +1 initiatives in the Vior’la list, and he assumed it should be at +1 just as in the 3dSphere. I tried but couldn’t find that question ever getting an answer? But it should have an initiative at +1 too right?
