The game was just a quickie, with small fleets, using the Convoy scenario as that seemed pretty thematic for the fleets we had chosen to play. Andy was using his Imperials, while I had chosen to bring out my Rogue Trader fleet. They are great for small games, with lots of choice, and work thematically for a number of the scenarios.
Hi guys, I came across a really cool video batrep for BFG you may be interested by the guys at Guerilla Miniature Games. Catch it here - I promise a proper blog post soon!
Hi guys, Last post of the ships that make up my newly painted Bastion fleet, this time a pair of Apocalypse Class Battleships, the Zurishaddai and the Ammishaddai. Both are very rare models now, and regularly go for stupid amounts on eBay, but I managed to snap up both of these for less then the [...]
Hi guys, Next up are a pair of Vengeance Class Grand Cruisers, a steady old workhorse of the Imperial fleet that draws on both Imperial and Chaos fleet aesthetics to create what I think is a really nice model. I particularly like the broad, flat, heavy prow and the two bridges. Unfortunately the Grand Cruiser [...]
Hi guys, Last set of pictures of the (boring) cruisers for this fleet I promise. This time it the pair of Gothic class cruisers in the list, the Issachar and the Zuar, that are in the spotlight. As anyone that has played me at BFG will know, I love my Gothic Class Cruisers! While they [...]
Hi guys, This post features the pair of Tyrant class cruisers in the list - both given additional the weapons battery upgrade and replacing their torpedoes with Nova Cannons. This makes them rather fearsome, but also rather expensive. They sport FP10 45cm Weapons Batteries on the side which is pretty nice for an Imperial ship. [...]
Hi guys, Second fleet pic post up now. This time it is two of the Dictator Class Cruisers that form the bedrock to most Imperial Fleets you come across, especially those not large enough to field a Battleship (which is ALWAYS an Emperor class... *yawn*). The necessity of ordnance (bombers and fighters) in BFG really [...]
Hi Guys, First set of detailed Bastion pictures. This set deals with the three light cruisers that are part of the list; the Pedahzur, the Ahiezer, and the Pagiel. All of these models were bought from a guy on Warseer who scratch-built a conversion and then cast them in resin. They were quite nice casts, [...]
Hi guys You may have remembered me talking about putting together a Bastion fleet a while ago, a specific type of Imperial fleet that is based around defending the Eye of Terror, here and here. Well, I have finally finished painting them and gotten round to taking some picture for you all. "Battlefleeets Cadia, Agripinaa, [...]
Hi guys, Another quick BFG post, this time of two Hawking Class Exploration cruisers. "The Hawking Class dates from the time of the legendary crusades of Lord Solar Macharius. The original Hawking was a hastily constructed vessel designed to range ahead of Macharius' main battlefleet and search the Halo Stars for enemy fleets and new [...]
