Neat use of the old Yamato models! I bought a few of those years ago with the idea of using them in BFG too .

Those are not the old ones, but the new ones from Yamato 2199 they are better sized for BFG, the older models are bigger.

Progress on my acquired Helios ships, will also add some stripes like the scratch built one.

Spoiler:


Battlefleet gothic ship in the front with battlefleet Helios weapon bays (the one in the back with original someone donated to me at the recent Nagoyahammer event).

Wow, that's fantastic. I didn't realize they were so close in size. Very cool.

I'm still hoping someone will eventually post a photo of the landraider/ trukk/ grav tank from that game against some of their Epic equivalents (or I should say: I'm still hoping to stumble across those photos eventually...)

Way to small for that, alas. I was really disappointed when I opened my copy since I totally misjudged the mini-Repulsives, was planning to use them as Dauntless standins for a Heresy-era fleet, but they're not even big enough for that. They're "heavy escort" sized really.

The Space Marine models are brilliant though; the mini-Battlebarge is literally perfectly sized to stand in for a Strike Cruiser, and the mini-Strike Cruisers will work great as Frigates. I'm actually enamoured enough of them I'm going to try and find another box in a Black Friday sale(which I'm justifying to myself as "well if you bought three SCs and a frigate squadron on ebay it would cost you more than £60 anyway, so you're getting all the other stuff for free" ) so I can have a "standard" 6-SC fleet of them. The Eldar stuff looks like it will see use as well, the escorts are roughly the right size, perhaps a tad small, but with minor conversion the mini-Void Stalker should work as standins for the FW Eldar light cruiser model.

Have either of you compared the FFG land units to their GW Epic equivalents? The Orc Trukk, Eldar grav tank, and SM landraider are neat looking models, I was wondering how they'd look up against the old Epic models.

Yes i agree they are a tad small, but until i have the real thing they will be cruisers in my games

That is a sweet model! What's the packaging look like and where do you get those? And if you're not in Japan, anyone know if they are available overseas, or mostly just Japanese domestic products?

I've seen some old ones in Japantown here in San Francisco, maybe I need to head back and see if they have any newer models!

Aha, took a little googling (my first effort failed), but it looks like it's this one: BANDAI HOBBY #5 MECHA COLLECTION DESSULA-II "SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO 2199" MODEL KIT, and I found it on sale for $17 on bambuzo.com (A site I've never heard of...)

I can't wait until they re-release BFG. Though it's not too likely I'll ever play, I'll probably collect an Eldar fleet, just because they're so cool looking!

The barge looks a liitle small for a battleship or battle barge, but looks about right for a grand cruiser. The cruiser looks like it'll make an excellent light cruiser or strike cruiser.

They come without bases because Shapeways aren't a miniatures or gaming company. They're simply a manufacturer of 3D printed doodads and knick-knacks. To them, those things you bought are no different to a cutlery stand, a decorative napkin ring or anything else they sell.

I saw a picture on the net that it is comparable to a Space marine battle barge so that is what i am going to use it as.

Exactly

I use left over parts, sprues, greenstuff, and anything that i can use to make ships. the top of the last ship is from a 3rd party jet bike that came with 2 different lower halves, i used that for the top
of the ship.

I played Space Fleet last night, my first foray into 40K starship battles ever.

It was hilarious. Thankfully, the beer was plentiful. I'm eager to try out BFG (especially since I understand it's nothing like Space Fleet!)

The models were painted though, and they looked nice!

From the guy that i played BFG against last week i acquired some ships an incomplete Battlebarge and a bunch of Chaos cruisers. Those cruisers where made by a guy with no clue about the game most were unusable configurations, and i spilled blood for the chaos gods getting some stuff off.

Great thread!

You should check out the cheap star ship thread if you haven't already.

http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/689209.page

You're doing a great job selling me Forbidden Stars too...

How important is size/scale in BFG? I thought it was irrellevent since the ships are really just tiny dots in the center of the base? Is it just an aesteic issue?

It was hilarious. Thankfully, the beer was plentiful. I'm eager to try out BFG (especially since I understand it's nothing like Space Fleet!)

The models were painted though, and they looked nice!



OMG there's more than one out there!

I just got Space Fleet off of ebay and spent way too much amassing funky old ships for it.

It is more an aesthetic thing as the base size determine battle ships, i just try to keep ships in the same size so the Forbidden stars battleships become cruisers and the escort class ships are about the same size so they are ok.

This is a bad time to get into BFG, but you have done well for yourself.

I am surprised you havent done a Tau fleet with the Trade Federation and assorted Japanese franchise ships. They would fit right in.

As for scratchbuild. Nids nids nids. Also make roks for your orks, rok heavy ork fleets can work, less ramming but good cheap capable firepower.

A request, can you place a ruler by the forbidden stars vessels, especially the eldar Void Stalker and the ork vessels. I might get a set to round out my eldar and ork fleets if the items are suitably scaled.

Hey can you take a pic of BFG next to Space Fleet? I'm trying to get an idea of how undersized the SF ships are.

My whole space fleet fleet is in my home country, but what i remember is that the Emperor size battle ship is about the size of a dauntless
found this though

That's very handy thanks. Not as bad as I feared, the Gothics are about the size of a GW plastic cruiser, much less massive but length wise not bad at all.

And I saw a battlestar galactica hiding that might make a good space marine ship.

Novemberrain, I've been painting up Space Fleet ships lately but don't have any BFG to compare them to, do you have any pictures of a Gothic ship next to a BFG cruiser?

Trying to get an idea of how undersized they might be.

Looks pretty good, nice idea. How does it scale with the rest of the fleet and other fleets? One thing that always annoyed me was the lack of Tyranid ships that meant you had to scratchbuild and my scratchbuild skills are awful. I got a couple of hive ships and the smaller escort ships (I forget the name of them) but if you wanted anything destroyer sized - i.e. the mainstay of any fleet, you had to buidl it yourself.

As good as finished, maybe he armor plates and then i am done.
