Revolutionary biscuits of Italy, you’ve got nothing to lose but your wafers…

Yum Yum Yum

Jim and I have mapped out our Full Thrust Campaign.

Set in an Italian colonised area of Space it features two powers which I might fold into the Prodigal Empires background.

 – the Bourboni Kingdom – regal, noble monarchists featuring the systems of Expresso, Latte, Skinny Latte, the ice world Frappe, Americano and Mocha.

– the Garabaldi Republic – filthy corrupt liberals featuring the systems of Linguini, Fusilli, Spaghetti, Ravioli, Tagetelle and Penne

(Cna you guess which one I’m playing?)

Inital border systems being fought over are Gnocci, Pizza, Marinara (a sea world) and Ameretto.

To keep things simple we’ve used the basic ships types and base don 4000 points the respective fleets are:

Royal Bourboni Navy

1 Carrier, 2 Battleships, 3 Heavy Cruisers, 1 Escort Cruiser, 3 Light Cruisers, 10 Destroyers, 1  Courier (Royal yacht)

Republic of Garabaldi Navy

1 Battlecruiser, 5 Heavy Cruisers, 5 Light Cruisers, 1 Escort Cruiser, 11 Destroyers, 4 Frigates,

Full names of the fleets will follow – I’ll publish a ‘tube’ style map and Matt & Matt who have kindly agred to be our high command while decide what Navy units are grouped into fleets and where. tehy will then move them on the ‘tube’ map on system at a  time. Then when they meet…it’s MURDER (cough) sorry I mean Jim and I will fight it out.
