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.

Very good for converted hulls..

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

By the way, do you have some nice close ups of those ships you've got from Vanguard Miniatures (the Venusian ships)?

I see you found my Rogue Trader fleet above, which was some of the venusian transports at the back but better pics can be seen here

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.

First Battle of the Year played a BFG battle with Kid_Kyoto who was visiting Japan, a 500 point Chaos versus Space fleet imperials.
Didn't expect him to have a carrier so that bit me in the behind, but still a fun battle
Set up

Killed the escorts

Spoiler:


But in return he killed one of my Slaughter class cruisers

Spoiler:


Next slaughter about to die

Note to self don't forget to use brace for impact order

Nice model, looks like it would be worth it just to build and paint.

Bandai does great stuff.

They are not a kit, they are like those boxes you buy at the convenience store with anime figures or robots, these are not in rotation any more so i find them at second hand shop
