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).

Ha! So did I. I have a few dozen of them. Can't bring myself to sell them, but they haven't come out of their plano storage in a few years now... Someday?

I play...

Sigh.

That first ship is all scratchbuilt? That is pretty impressive.

Nice. I have a soft spot for Epic and BFG. My wallet doesn't though...

You mean at the top of the page? yes, scratch-built with leftover parts, the way to go when you are on a budget
