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.


>> No.15185509

nids, want to try a fleet with as many escorts as i can fit in but don't have enough mini's

>> No.15185521

just an FYI, battleships and grand cruisers use the large 60mm flying base

>> No.15185555

I'll knock them up next.

Dammit, forgot about that. I'll update it.

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

>> No.15185654

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

>> No.15185715

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:

>> No.15185895

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

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

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

>> No.15186062

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

>> No.15186091

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.

>> No.15186164

And more importantly, it's more expensive than my friends can/will afford.

relevant to my interests. been kinda wanting to try BFG, how easy is it to learn?

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

>> No.15186500

I've been working on Imperials, might take a while though, they have way more ships and I'm not sure I've got them all.

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.

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.

His Emperor's Imperial Navy!

These are the proxies I'm most looking forward. So many cool tactics to try.

>> No.15189186

Forgot to mention, these are just the ones out of the vanilla BFG list. There are more from the newer lists which I know little about.

Chaos. Again, ships not in the rulebook not included.

>> No.15189601

haha i have a half dozen of those idolators with the skull-laser lance.

oh chaos u so silly

>> No.15191067

those are great though a little out of date.

>> No.15193832

hey OP, you got Tau?

>> No.15193863


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?

Sure, I'll do Tau later on today

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.

Looks like a recolouring of the Firestorm, but better than nothing?

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?
