    Homeworld Tabletop Strategy Wargame

    Post by Elsepth on Fri Feb 27, 2009 5:25 am

    Those who haz not yet played Homeworld or Homeworld Cataclysm, please leave teh room(und go download an play it).

    PAPERMODELS YAY!

    und now we need game mechanics. We'll start with teh original game, with which I am FAIRLY familiar.

    This is a greatly cut-down list of ships around which we can base our core rules.

    Fighter chassis
    Scout
    Interceptor
    Bomber
    Defender

    Corvette Chassis
    Light Corvette
    Heavy Corvette
    Salvage Corvette
    Minelayer Corvette
    Repair Corvette
    Multigun Corvette

    Frigate Chassis
    Assault Frigate
    Ion Cannon Frigate
    Repair Frigate
    Resourcer

    Capital Ship Chassis
    Destroyer
    Missile Destroyer
    Carrier
    Heavy Cruiser

    Mothership Chassis
    Mothership(duh)

    So that means we need following mechanics:
    Movement
    Firing arcs
    Accuracy
    Damage
    Strikecraft
    Resources
    Production

    Considering teh size of teh ships from homeworld(4km for teh Heavy cruiser) I propose that strikecraft instead become squadrons, so wha we know as a squadron in teh game becomes instead a wing.

    Weapon list
    Autocannon
    Defense turret
    Railgun
    Heavy Railgun
    Plasma bomb launcher
    Ion Cannon
    Mines
    Repair Beam(S)
    Repair Beam(L)
    Missiles
    Mining beam
    und Ramming too.

    Now excuse me while I go play Homeworld again.

    I noticed again how freaking awesome the Avatar HC is. Pair it up with an escort of heavy 'vettes and it's near invulnerable. Hard part is that the heavy vettes keep dying on me.
