Revised HFB Rules and Stats

8 posts in this topic

I am just looking into the revised Fleet Battle ruleset that was released last november.

There is a PDF document on the spartan homepage that provides all the new stats, but I am missing a couple of elements there:

  • Reinforced Epoch
  • Escorted Epoch
  • Escorted / Defended Marathon

The same for some of the covenant formations. What I find particularly strange is that some of those ships had stats before the revised ruleset came out. Can those no longer be used? Or does the PDF only contain formation with stats that actually changed?

To my knowledge, Spartan Games never made those Elements, so there are no rules for them, new or otherwise.  If you have rules for them, could you share a picture?

Sadly, the Epoch has never been it Reinforced. It comes Unsupported, Supported or Defended, but never Reinforced or Escorted. 

Same goes for the Marathon with the exception of Reinforced. It comes Unsupported, Supported, Reinforced and Paired formations.

The PDF stats for Halo Fleet Battles found here are the latest updates to rules and unit statistics, these were made in an attempt to better balance the game and supersede the rules and unit statistics that came before, for better or worse.

I was sure I had seen stats for those ships I mentioned before, but I could not find any of those in the stat cards at home.

Maybe I finally succumb to rampancy ...

Are the stats for the paired Marathons still wrong, noticed the range of the MAC is the same as the old incorrect cards? Think that particular card wasn't altered when they did the stat changes

If they are in the PDF, then they are correct.

Still looks like they haven't fixed it, Heavy MAC is 16/32 inches yet there is one page that still shows it as 15/30 inches and this was stated as a mistake by Spartan Games when it first came out. They have fixed the Elusive rule on the frigates on the page but not that one which is odd as all the other Marathons have the correct range etc. http://www.spartangames.co.uk/wp/wp/wp-content/spartanimg/HFB UNSC Stats Compiled.pdf
