And some transports/escorts



My current thinking is just to have them sit on the mat flat, no flying base.

But for the escorts I might stack them bottom to top to create a more 3d ship.

The ESS Santicus Patrician is an ancient vessel of unknown lineage, modified and expanded many times over its long life until its swollen hull corresponds too no known class or type. The personal vessel of High Confessor Guaridano, it travels the sub sector seemingly at random arriving in Imperial systems without warning. Soon the four steeples begin broadcasting on all frequencies, overpowering ordinary vox traffic and proclaiming the good news of the High Confessor's arrival. The Patrician then takes up orbital station and shuttles filled with preachers, confessors, witch hunters and missionaries land to assess the state of the world's faith. Inevitably the shuttles soon take flight again, now filled with penitents pleading to confess their sins.

(Dystopian Wars Britannia helicarrier, rules-wise probably just a superheavy transport)



The source of the Al Impuror clan's wealth is a cluster of systems outside of Imperial rule whcih they gained the monopolistic charter to generations ago. Each year the fleet of fat treasure galleons sets out from the port of Bingham on a secretive route to these uncharted systems. Months later they return their hulls heavy with the wealth of a dozen worlds.

The flagship, Nai Dilli's unique double hull puzzles naval engineers who are not sure if it was the original design of the ship or a jerry-rigged mating of two treasure galleons. Had it been properly maintained the Nai Dilli might indeed be one of the most powerful fighting ships in the sector, but over the generations gun decks have been turned into banquet halls, torpedo bays into treasure vaults and, most scandalously, the lance turrets converted to instead project a planet-sized holo display in honor of the then-Patriarch's wedding. Today it would be hard-pressed to defend itself from even a moderately-aggressive attacker. Fortunately the captains of the other galleons have kept their vessels in fighting shape.

(Rogue Trader fleet, the big ship is another super heavy transport)

Great stuff. I'll have to do the ottoman to battllefleet gothic conversion some day. Love the Ecclesiarchy ship's overall shape and outline - fits very well. The heavy lifter shuttle is great too, though I feel the control cabin should be mounted lower down.

I really like the idea behind Drop Fleet/Drop Zone, but not enough to force someone to play it with me, though if somebody took it up in the area I'd certainly jump in.

Thanks more painting to do of course, just tried out my new fine point sharpies for the portholes. Have to find a transfer for that big white space on the hull.

For the tank transporter I was trying to break up the familiar shape of Eagle 1 with the horse head type cockpit and the aggressively ugly UPS paint scheme. Still not happy with it, a ton of black ink might finish the job making it look like a worn out orbital shuttle.

Hmm...

Seemed like a good idea



Fit together nicely



But now I'm not so sure...



Thoughts?

I could always just green stuff a slightly convex bottom and put them on flying bases but I really liked the idea of having the only ship in BFG that could shoot up and down!

So I got some (well lots) of plastic Space Fleet ships from ebay, more than my Space Fleet brand Space Fleet would ever need.

What to do... what to do...



The first 5 of 9 CSM ships!



Marque of Mutation



Count of Corruption



Prince of Pleasure



Admiral of Anger



Warmaster of Wisdom

4 to go... willI be able to create enough alliteration? Only time will tell.

Love the chaos ships, super spooky, it's lucky there's no sound in space as i'd imagine those mega-chainsaws would be ultra loud. May i ask if their painting is finished? From the photos it looks like there's still some bare plastic. Also the Admiral of Anger reminds me of one of the fat future humans on the hover couches from Wall-E.

Really like the Santicus Patrician, very cool.

The old Space Fleet ships were red and blue plastic so the painting hasn't even started yet.

Finishing off the last 4 today then priming.

Maybe I should do a Fallen Angel ship too?

Finished the Nasty Nine today.





Black Legion



Alpha Legion



Word Bearers



Emperors Children



Death Guard (added pus pods under the main hull)



Iron Warriors



World Eaters (replaced the prow chainsaw with a big gun)



Thousand Sons (added a mystic crystal as a centerpiece)



And the other guys (my least favorite but it does the job)

Still have 2 or 3 ships left (plus a pile of plastic Eldar) so why not...



Battle sisters



Someone's gonna have a bad day...

Some more progress on my ever-expanding fleets.

I picked up some more delightful Dystopian Wars models but these were naval ships with flat bottoms.



I love the locomotive look and the uncompromising battering ram lines, and that they're the size of my Emperor Capitol Ships.

I could be lazy and just mount them on flying bases and call it a day.

Or...



The initial experiment was not great, the green stuffing was rough but the keel looked OK.



Adding some spheres from the Buck Rogers toys I got last year helped a lot, nothing says science fiction like pointless round things.

Which reminds me, orbital defenses.



The Blazing Sun (Japan) battleship got some extra keels and looks pretty decent.



The British battleship needs some statues to cover up the smoke stacks but is otherwise looking decent too.



Painting soon I hope.

The Chaos fleet is looking great, though I feel chaos calls for MOAR INK. Great choices from Dystopian wars line there - the Blazing sun ship is indeed the pick of the litter. I'm not sure about the curved bottoms, especially given how hard it is to get greenstuff to cooperate at that scale. I always loved the downward jutting stuff look myself. Where are the little plastic spheres for orbital defense and such from?

I have an old post on the round things, it's still my best buy in years.

A crazy junk store called American Science and Surplus has (among a million other crazy things) left over pieces from the TSR Buck Rogers board game. The one from the 80s. They still say Make in Hong Kong!

And you get, I am not kidding, 140 of them for $3.50. Which sounds like a lot till you realize you can get 960 fighters for $4.

It's funny, Kyoto Secunda and her Clone Sister Kyoto Secunda Prime got a Barbie dollhouse for Christmas and promptly made a game involving My Little Pony, Wonder Woman and whomever else coming to visit Barbie and having a party.

Which is basically what I'd doing for my fleets.

The Buck Rogers stuff takes superglue but not plastic cement, it's that waxy sort of green army men plastic. PVC maybe? But the superglue works.

The Dragon looking ships are epic Doom Wings and Fire Lords with some skull encrusted Space Fleet Cobras too

Group photos is on my list for this family free week

As for the fliers, they'll count as Idolator escorts and Fanatic light cruisers to flesh out the fleet. The Skull Cobras (Skobras) as Iconoclast gunboats. I've been thinking about fluff:

Spoiler:
"Gadzooks!" Abaddon D. Spoiler ejaculated loudly, the force of his oath peeling the paint from the bulwark wall. A team of slaves hurried to touch it up.
"Defeated again!" He drew his cursed daemon sword H'rdt'sp'll and hacked at the walls in rage. Kharn D. Betrayer looked on in admiration.
"Why can't I do anything right!" He wailed, much like a little girl.
"The problem m'lord" said Space Death Master DoomCannon FireBlood (formerly known as Grand Admiral Wesslick Morningstar before his defection in M38, Y643) "is escorts." He concluded.
"Escorts! Bah!" Abaddon spat, the acid in his saliva eating a small hole in the porthole's armorglass. A team of slaves rushed to patch it as Kharn D. Betrayer looked on in admiration. "Those little dinky ships?! I spit on them!" He ejaculated loudly, slaves rushed to patch the floor as his spit ate through the armored deck. "I want BIG SHIPS! The Bigger the Better! Did I ever tell you about my space ship the Planet-Blower-Upper?"
"M'lord" DoomCannon began with the infinite patience only a man who's spent 2000 years having the same conversation can muster, "escorts are essential to intercept enemy vessels so that they cannot take station behind us and destroy our engines, as happened the last 12 times."
"Begorah!" Abaddon ejaculated loudly, the force of his oath killing several slaves who had been patching the deck. Kharn D. Betrayer looked on in admiration. "Why don't we just shoot them with the rear guns?"
"We uh, don't have rear guns." DoomCannon confessed. "You'll have to ask Andy Chambers about that."
"Blimey!" Abaddon ejaculated loudly spearing a slave with his cursed daemon sword H'rdt'sp'll while dicing another slave with his lightning claws.
"The point being sir, we need escort ships if the Nasty Nine are ever to triumph over the hated foes of the Imperial Navy."
"Strewth!" Abaddon ejaculated loudly firing several mass-reactive explosive rounds into the slaves patching the damaged porthole. Kharn D. Betrayer looked on in admiration. "Fine! Go get some!"
"M'lord escorts are smaller than cruisers yes but they're still complex star ships we can't just pull them out of the ether."
"Crikey! How will we ever defeat the... Wait, say that part again."
"Well sir they may be smaller but they still need plasma reactors, geller fields and-"
"No, no, no, the other part."
"Pull them out of the ether?"
"Yes! Summon Arhiman and those guys with the hats!"
"Who? The sorcerers?"
"Yes! Them, the hat guys!" Abaddon D. Spoiler drew forth the Sacred Credit Card of Penultimate DeathDoom, "Prepare the Rite of Ee'Bhai!" he ejaculated loudly.
Soon...

"Well that was easy." Abaddon ejaculated softly.
Kharn nodded in approval. "Skobras" he said looking over the ships decorated with Gibraltar-sized skulls.
"There's no way that should have wor-" DoomCannon began.
At just that very moment the weakened and unrepaired deck and porthole gave away blasting them all into the cold depths of space.

The End

One nice thing about getting some old chaos models is being reminded how crazy things were.

When I did the Nasty Nine I thought I was being way too crazy what with the mile long chainsaws and everything, but now that I've seen these I realize that I wasn't nearly way too crazy enough.

Someone's getting a battleship!

Oh and for ####'s sake! I must have had dozens of those damn Raven Wing feather things at one point or another and NOW that I think of a use for them...

The Nasty Nine and the Sacrilegious Seventeen got their photo op tonight...

(some more paint and a gallon of ink still needed)

The Imperium also intercepted broadcasts about something called the Terrible Tenth...



But the handful of blurry picts were quickly rejected as a hoax since there's no way something that that could fly, much less fight.

Meanwhile in the ship yards, the Grand High Arch Shipwright started getting creative.

Have you seen the Star Trek Ascendancy escalation packs?

https://www.amazon.com/Gale-Force-Ascendancy-Romulan-Board/dp/B01MUCJDIR/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&qid=1514569067&sr=8-9&keywords=Star+Trek+ascendancy

The Romulan pack has warbirds roughly in scale with BFG. The Federation pack, Galaxy Class ships roughly in scale with DFC, etc. Each set comes with 15 ships and 5 starbases, great for adding detail to larger stations maybe.
