In a similar manner with the construction of the ships in this set, you could have firestomr pathogen bottom that would fit the Aquan top, giving you yet another iteration of the ships. Once again, a single-purpose ship in this class is something Sorylian Engineers would wish to avoid, just minesweeping is not going to satisfy most Sorylian Commander’s thirst for combat.
Here we have the Dysdera:.

The Sorylians are not natural fliers, and they tend to field SRS principally in dedicated carrier vessels. This results in a reduced broadside capability, and so Sorylian Engineers have focussed on providing a hard-hitting fore mounted scatter array to soften targets up on approach before launching their coup de grace hand-to-hand.
This has led the Relthoza to technological solutions — the introduction of the new nanospatial lance weapon system in the Virulence gunship has proved successful and has been expanded to new ship types. It is also possible to take a pair of Pauldron Escort Cruiser to further expand and add flexibility to its SRS complement.
It does pay for this rather single-purposed mentality somewhat – it can be vulnerable to short-ranged torpedo weapons, and should it’s cloak be damaged its hull is not meant for front-line combat confrontations with similarly-sized vessels. Let’s take a look at the Serapis:. Alternatively they can be outfitted with the next generation of Shunt drives, enabling them to leap forward and deliver a crippling blow where the armda would never suspect it.
This enables SRS cover for smaller task forces, and boosts the abilities of larger vessels such as the Serapis – the latter is not configured for bomber operations, but coupled with 2 Pauldrons, it can field both bombers and assault shuttles, or provide interceptor cover etc. Commonly fielding assault shuttles fidestorm packed with warriors, these ships are relatively cheap and fast to construct, relying on stealth and cloaks to get to their prey and seize them.

This results in a slightly more delicate internal structure, simply because of the fine balance required for the new technology.
Firstly, the Cuirass has a much greater offensive bent that the Falx — it is built as a ship ready to duel with other battleships in open space one-to-one, and take them down. It needs to be a tough ship too, since it’s assigned duty is minesweeping, using the new Minsweeper MAR:. As with much emergent Relthozan technology, it is meant to be highly disruptive to any enemies plans.
The Grand Council have recognised that the tactics of other races, especially the Relthoza who are capable of fielding large quantities of SRS at any engagement level have exposed a potential weakness in the Collecxtive’s Sphere defences, below where fitestorm carriers such as the Xiphos are deployed.
It firfstorm maintains a standard broadside weaponry to protect itself from flanking attacks should its cloak or shunt matrix be damaged, though most Cryptos crews pray that these are never to be used, as it is not a ship designed for an honest, even fight.
Now Relthoza mediums are also an interesting design space, and there is plenty of scope here. Rather than give them a ship that did the same as other races, they would deal with this by countering firestor, threat.

As the Tier firesorm would be a resin rework of an existing ship, no need to talk about that here, so let’s move on. This type of assault often disrupts the carefully made plans of their opponents, allowing the Sorylians rapidly-closing fleet elements to mop up the scattered remnants.
This has been done elsewhere like Deadzone – you include a set of cards that allow you to play against an AI-Pathogen fleet. The Twenty deem this a price worth paying for its potential rewards – after all, fresh young warriors are an easily firesyorm resource. With typical Sorylian practicality, the Pauldron also retains offensive armaments to ensure it remains viable even on losing its complement of on-board craft.
Deployed by Hidden Setup or by the Cuirass, these drones allow pinpoint foldspace entry by Sorylian ships within their area of effect — making that double Battleship setup even more deadly.
Flagellants have thus rapidly gained a reputation as line-breakers, and it is seen as one of the most honourable positions to hold in the Collective’s Sphere Defence fleets. To further this point, the ship has an extensive number of defensive enhancements, notably a reinforced, strengthened fore, and shrouded scatter weapons – making the ship extremely tough on the approach into battle.

The Cuirass bears many similarities to the Falx and Swordbreaker that preceded it, but with several enhancements and design shifts. Employing an experimental advanced cloaking field, the Cryptos is almost impossible to target when cloaked, and chooses when to engage its prey using the same nanospatial lance system used in the Dysdera.
Next we have the Cryptos Destroyer, one of the most daring and advanced ships Relthozan technology has produced to date. We heard mention above of the Pauldron Escort Cruiser above, so let’s start there. The Relthoza spiders were my first entry point into the FSA universe, so I’m used to them and I’ve never had a problem with how they play in terms of seeing them as “difficult”.
Take the Aquan Cruiser from the Taskforce Reinforcement boxes – you have a top and a bottom, plus another add-on for the Carrier version. The Sorylians have a pretty effective Tier 2 selection, with extremely effective Cruisers and Gunships – what more could they have that would be a viable selection? Well one area the Sorylians do lack is in the area of mines – they simply do not use them.
