Forbidden stars cruisers almost finished, here is the progress

Spoiler:


And ordered some ships from shapeways, The barge was bigger than i expected and the cruisers smaller than expected, the only gripe is that they came without bases.

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?

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.

Adrift within the vortex of my imagination.

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.

I love the flying Dutchman.

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.
