Chris,
 It's just a cruiser with launch bays only and dorsal turrets, looked like a good name for it.

Guys,

the old Space Fleet vessels make REALLY good system defence ships.  I agree they are too cool to use as "fat boys" (aka merchants/troop transports) and they really display a bit of the "manufactured to local specifications from locally aquired materials" look that I always thought went with system defence ships.

Wasn't there one like that called the Jovian back in Planet Killer/BFG mag 1? Like a pure carrier?

Cheers

Chris

Hola. I just recently picked up the game and just build what I could from the box set, and opted to eventually get a few others to fill up a 1000 pt Imperial and Chaos fleet.  I know these are pretty small compared to you guys, but I figured if I had less, I'd really care about them and try to do a good job with them.

My Imperial Fleet has

1 Overlord (I took the Dark Angel icon off of Anzrel's[?is that his name?] standard and stuck it on the bridge.  It looks like a mini battleship and is by far my favorite).
1 Dictator
1 Gothic
1 Mars

with plans to get 3 Firestorms

My Chaos Fleet Includes

1 Hades
1 Murder
1 Devastation  
1 Slaughter

With plans to get
3 Idolators
3 Iconoclasts

I also want to get the fighters and bombers too. I know I don't need much.

I know it's not much, but I have to admit I am not crazy about Battlefleet Gothic.  I like the Eldar, but I thought I'd just try to build up with what came in the box set.  I would probably dive right into the Dark Eldar if there were more of a variety of ships. . .

...Now have virtually all my fleet painted up and ready to go- I am currently re-working three second-hand cruisers (hacking off launch bays etc), to get them into what I want- when I am done, of my 14 CA/HC, I will have:

1 Mars, 1 Overlord, 1 Armageddon, 4 Lunars, 2 Tyrants, 1 Dominator, 2 Gothics, 2 Dictators.

:D

...heh.. blimey, you built that lot up fast Signius......
Any chance of some pictures?? ????

-I'm fairly sure the Falchion rules are not yet on the web- Fanatic site or otherwise- which is most annoying as some will be part of my next BFG purchase, and I don't have the BFG Mag the rules were in...  :L

Yeah, I seemed to have gone full bore with the building of my fleet. Didn't take too long. I think the rules for the falchion are in teh BFG mag12. I need to get one. I am pretty stoked. The fllet is all but built. I just want two old gothics and I am done. I don't want any of the other ships I have seen. The FW ones, I mean. But, who knows. Maybe a new ship will come along.  }:)  As I said, all I need now is an opponent to learn the games particulars and see what my fleet can do. There is a hobbyshop around here that I was invited to join in on their BFG games they hold on saturday. I may have to check it out. I just do not like the guy who works there. He's one of those know-it-all types. You know what I mean.  :p Constantly bragging and arrogant to boot. Who knows, I may learn to like the guy if I don't kill him first.  :D

OH DEAR!!!

I suppose before I start I should point out that where gaming is concerned I am probably certifiable. I like to play campaigns and I prefer to have all the units in a campaign available for play. My Golgotha setting is an imperial rebellion. Prior to rebellion the fleet consisted of (roughly) 17 battleships, 18 BC's, 62 cruisers (heh I have 19 lunars) 62 light cruisers and heavy escorts, 93 Escorts. Oh yeah , I still have ships to build. I guess I should also admit to having over 200 bases of ordnance (attack craft) plus a lot of ?torpedos plus transports. Yeap I am sick.
}:) ? :l
You can see a full fleet list and links to hundreds of pics at
http://www.angelfire.com/games4/chubbyb ... lasses.htm
Almost all the ships are conversions and some scratch builds . I like variety.

:blush:
