sup Battleflee/tg/amers

I found some top-down views of all of the BFG ships. I scaled them up and put them on A4 paper so I can print them out and play for £free.

Here's the first lot I knocked up. Would /tg/ like me to do the rest?

>> No.15185466

BFG rules are free online for those who are interested.

I've no idea how good the scale on these is, not that it matters a great deal.

Man, thank you! those are wonderful proxies and they'll help me scratchbuild my own ships.

No worries, anything to undermine GW's monopoly.

If anyone's wondering where these come from, they're from a mod for Vassal. Join the Yahoo group for more information:

BFG is one of the good games from GW, free good rules. quite cheap for a war game if you want it to be too.

>> No.15186003

>>15185895
You're right, it is pretty good value for money. Compared to other GW stuff, anyway. It's still more than I can afford though.

>> No.15186026

>>15186003
$30 is more than you can afford?
you can build a 1500 point nid fleet out of GW models for that much.

>> No.15186062

>>15186026
or if you want to spend a bit more $100 will get you 2000 points of chaos/imperial ships.

>> No.15186091

>>15186026
I was looking at an Eldar fleet, I think I worked out £50 (~80USD) for 1500, and I'd want more than that for experimenting/playing about.

Very. The rule book is very big, but it's mostly fluff. The basic rules are about 25 pages.

I'm hoping to play online using a virtual tabletop...gonna investigate this yahoo group of yours!

>> No.15186577

Just a note for you, the void stalker is much larger than the shadow/eclipse class ships. Probably about 1.5x their size. Might want to scale up the sprite for it by about that margin..

Sorry, slow getting this done, distractions everywhere.

>>15186577
I thought the scale on that was off. It doesn't matter anyway, everything is measured from the bases. I think I'll just upload all the GIMP files when I'm done so people can scale them as they please.

hey OP, you got Tau?

To be fair, you've got most of it. All you really need is the Rogue Trader cruiser and escorts and that'll probably be everything.

>Falchion still using the Firestorms image as a placeholder

Goddamn it, when is that and the rest of the Voss pattern ships going to get sprites... I love those ships.

>> No.15194295

Yup, they're from when the game was first released. If anyone has any updated ones could you post them?

>>15193832
Sure, I'll do Tau later on today

>>15193863
I'll check to see if there's a new sprite for the Falchion. Where are rules for it? I haven't checked out all the weirder new Imperial fleets.

The imperial section of the armada supplement on the website. Although the later FAQ's changed a few things like points cost and availability for the Voss Cruisers.

Come to think of it, did the module ever do Admech?
