Hello All,

Just wondering, how big are all of your fleets? In points that is.

My fleet has just got to 3000pts. It's Imperial and I have just finished my second battleship, an emperor.

So what about everyone else?

Cheers

Chris

My fleet is pretty new. I have still to complete it. I finally decided on the configs I am to be using. As it stands the fleet consists of the following.

1 Retaliator Grand Cruiser 295pts
1 Emperor Battleship 345
1 Retribution Battleship 365
1 Overlord Cruiser 235
1 Dominator 190
2 Mars Cruisers 340
2 Gothic Cruisers 360

Total pts:  2130

Pretty meager, I know. But, I am on my way.  :p

Mine tops out at 5k inlcuding 3 battleships, 12 cruisers and 8 escort squadrons....

My friend has penchant for building multiple space hulks so to combat the unbelieveable sight of 3 hulks invading an Imperial system, the High Lords of Terra dispatched to Uberfllet- all the above plus my SM Fleet of 2 battlebarges and 6 strike cruisers.  It was quite a battle and one that took place on a whopping 18ft x 18ft area with 8 planets!

It was an inlikely sight and a battle of a size not usually seen.  Thus you could say my fleet is unnecessarily large.  Of course, I wouldn't... :L

I have a small Ork fleet (Long story):

- Hulk (Friend sold it to me)
- Hammer (Friend asked me to finish converting it)
- x4 Brute Ramships (actually converted to be Epic Ork Bommas)
- I borrowed the rest.

I have a sizable Imperial Fleet (bought from a friend who needed money) (All painted):

- x2 Battleships
- x1 Space Station
- x4-8 Cruisers
- x2 Dauntless
- x8-12 Escorts
- I didn't count them to be exact.

I just bought a Necron fleet (bought as leftover bitz):

- x2 Battleships (Need a few bitz to finish them)
- x4 Cruisers (x2 of each type)
- x14 Bigger Escort (Maybe this is too many!)
- x3 Smaller Escort
- Some additional bitz to make Harvests, but too expensive to finish.

I also have some plastic sprues from the boxed set and some extra plastic cruisers given to me for no reason whatsoever.

Shalom,
Maksim-Smelchak.

My Imperial fleet has recently grown in size to almost 5000pts;
At the moment I have:

-2 Battleships,
-2 Battlecruisers,
-12 Cruisers,
-2 Dauntless LC,
-12 Cobras,
-9 Swords,
-3 Firestorms,
-3 Transports,
-1 Converted 'Tug-like' ship I made..

I did some trades of the BFG Chaos stuff I had to get my latest additions, as well as trading some 40k models to get an approx 1000pt Tau army, which I am currently working on...  :D

I've two fleets on the go.

My Chaos has:

Desolator Battleship
Hades Heavy Cruiser
Acheron Heavy Cruiser
Devastation Cruiser
Murder Cruiser
Slaughter Cruiser
Carnage Cruiser


My Imperial

Mars Battlecruiser
Lunar Cruiser
Dominator Cruiser
Gothic Cruiser
Tyrant Cruiser
6 Sword
3 Firestorm


I've also got some leftover ships from Space Fleet

Emperor Battleship
2 Gothic
2 Ironclad
4 Firestorm
4 Wraith Ships

With the exeption of the Wraith ships I've no idea what to use the others for , although I'm thinking about using the Gothics or Ironclads as Hawking Cruisers

Any ideas would be very grateful... I'm using the Wraithships as Umbra Cruisers :-:

Some people use the old Battleships as Heavy transports, they fit the description and fit in well with the sizes of the other ships.

Stormseer - 5000pts!!! Nice. I want to expand some more, I just finished my Emperor and want another!!!

Cheers

Chris

It dosen't seem right to use the old ships as transports, they are too good a model to not be a war ship, except the Emperor...

Yeah I have a SpaceFleet set and was wondering what to do with the Gothics.....

The Eldar Wraithships are pretty cool models too.. They don't really fit with the newer Eldar ships though.. :L

I loved the old Gothics and Ironclads. I also prefered the old Eldar ships to the newer ones. I am still regreting trading mine off. But, at the time I had no intention of going back to the game. If I can get ahold of some I will. The gothics and Ironclads could be used as light cruisers or heavy destroyers.

Signius,

I bought a ton of stuff (about $50.00 USD worth after the discount) today for you. I'll send you a list later.

Shalom,
Maksim.

Centurion, I haven't heard of this one: aquila? What is that? I probably know but have forgotten.

Cheers

Chris

No, I didn't.. Thanks CyberShadow, a great little article- I loved the fluff introduction, and the stats look pretty fair at a glance... :)

Has anyone played using these rules? -I am tempted to have a little game with my pair of Wraithships/Umbras against a few esorts or light cruisers to see how they fare in battle...

PS- Is there anything similar planned for the Imperial ships, and indeed the Tyranid ones?
