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...)

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

Nice to see some BFG stuff here

Some of those Helios ships on pg1 remind me of the Iron Warriors ships you see in the FW Horus Heresy books.

In my game room playing Specialist GW games

That is really cool!. I have been curious what the chaos models would look like if painted some other color than red. So what are you using the Grand Cruisers as?

"Khorne is a noble warrior who respects strength and bravery, who takes no joy in destroying the weak, and considers the helpless unworthy of his wrath. It is said that fate will spare any brave warrior who calls upon Khorne's name and pledges his soul to the blood god. It is also said that Khorne's daemons will hunt down and destroy any warrior who betrays his honour by killing a helpless innocent or murdering in cold blood..."

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

My Forbidden stars Chaos and Marine fleet are as good as finished (only need to add my chapter emblem on the space marine ships)

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...)

Awesome! But you keep torturing us, posting these cool Japanese ships without any links or references!

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!
