Kris' Hegemony of Amycles Fleet

Message par krismackie le Lun 4 Jan - 20:24

The Hegemony of Amycles, broadly speaking, appears to be a two tier society. The central core power,the planet of Amycles has all the cool toys, larger ships and these would all be painted in the colours of Amycles but the smaller ships, maybe destroyers and under belong to the vassal systems.

These vassal systems all compete for the attention of Amycles with power, glory and promotion coming from victory.

During peacetime I would assume these systems would have to find glory elsewhere, either through peaceful trade, exploration and scientific research or.......... more likely raiding other powers, political manoeuvring or literal fighting amongst the systems. If this gets out of hand, a state visit from an Amycles battle squadron would cool things down and remind the systems who they serve.  

Although this in fighting would seem counter productive to the Hegemony's goals it helps keep ships battle hardened, the vassal systems that survive will be stronger and it keeps them distracted, preventing them from joining forces and rising up against Amycles

So my thought for painting my fleet was this, frigates, destroyers and maybe cruisers will be painted randomly or with a few variations to signify a few different vassal systems with the larger ships all being painted the same to represent Amycles.

Using different variations for vassal systems is a great idea ! If I've understood the Amycles history, only Frigates should be painted like this, shouldn't they ?

That was my thinking too, don't think they'd be given anything more powerful. Anything more powerful and I'll keep them painted in my Amycles scheme

If I would paint my ships (one day... Smile ), I think I will also paint my Amycles' fregates in a different way, to illustrate their origins from various vassal systems!

I had never thought about this but you give me an idea. I hesitate between two things :
- fregates will be paint like others vessels except some stripes with différents colors.
- fregates will be paint like others vessels except the front or rear part.

I like to think of them brightly coloured like medieval knights at a tournament or WW1 fighters. Charging into battle for glory and honour in the hope to gain promotion and improve the standing of their system

Just shows I have too much time on my hand to start thinking about geopolitical systems for a game, creating an entire system and culture extrapolated from a paragraph in the rulebook. Will take some pictures tomorrow.

With this in mind, could play a game based on a Hegemony of Amycles civil war, one side all frigates vs a fleet of larger ships
