I got my large plastic bitz order in the other day and finally got the time to put together
my Dark Elf Blood Bowl team based on Dark Eldar minis and bitz.

I had ordered some other Dark Eldar bitz so I could piece together a DE BFG fleet. It took me awhile to find out what the exact measurements were for each ship but I did:
Escorts = 5cm
Cruisers = 9cm
Battleships = 13cm

its a rough guide as the ships don't mean much as all measurements are taken from the centre of the stand.
I have been able to make the following

210pts/40pts/40pts Torture Class Cruiser+ Launch bays+mimic engines
100pts Dread Archon
100pts3x Re-rolls
490pts

210pts/40pts/40pts Torture Class Cruiser+Launch bays+mimic engines
290pts

Corsair Class Escorts
200pts/80pts/80pts 4x Phantom Lance+mimic engines
360pts

Corsair Class Escorts
200pts/80pts/80pts 4x Prow Torpedos+mimic engines
360pts

grand total = 1,500pts

Will post pics soon camera ran out of juice.... So I am wondering what other players have hidden in their Fleets? what Fleeets do you own?.
Did you buy it? Make it?

Cheers

Will post pics once my Camera has fresh batteries....
Starting on an Ork fleet for my son.... will try and set it out tomorrow night and see what comes from it.

Spacehulk, Terror ship, Kill Kroozers and Roks should be fun and cheap just need to have a look in my bitz box.

I have two fleets, and while I love the idea of the game I have never managed to find an opponent.

I have an Imperial fleet with Retribution Class Battleship, four cruisers which are magnetized to be modular and 8 Cobra Escorts. They are in a British Royal Navy paint scheme from the days of Nelson.

I also have an unfinished Space marine fleet. Just finished assembling the Battle Barge yesterday. Now trying to decide on a colour scheme for the fleet. The BB is backed up by 3 strike cruisers 3 Swords and 6 Hunters.

I wish the rules for escorts were better so that they were more viable in a fleet. I also wish the suggested rule to limit the number of attack craft on the board to the number of launch bays in your fleet was official.

These are some older pictures

Made My Son's Fleet seems there is a guy who is only 45minutes drive who plays BFG so I am hoping he'll come over for a game or three.

Made my son:

Ork Hulk
2x Terror ships
3x Ravager Ships

will play 750pts as anything bigger would take along time to play.

Just got the batteries for the camera will take some pics after dinner and post them before I give them a spray of base coat.

Cheers

Here's my Dark Eldar Fleet going to undercoat them matt black tomorrow.
2x Torture Cruisers+Launch bays+Mimic engines
4x Corsair Escorts+Torpedos+Mimic engines
4x Corsair Escorts+Phantom Lances+Mimic engines
1x Dark Eldar Space station [no rules for it but might make a nice bit of scenery]


Close up of one of the Torture class cruiser and the Phantom lance Corsair Escorts


Close up of one of the Torture class cruiser and the Torpedo Corsair Escorts [though I could field these with Phantom lances or even impalers] still need to add torpedo tubes.


My son's Ork fleet [so far] which I am spraying red tomorrow.....

1x Gorbag's Revenge Ork Battleship
2x Terror Ork ships
3x Ravager Ork ships


I started making a Hulk for my son's Orks but after finally finding a copy of the latest ork lists. He can only take a Hulk if he is playing 1,500pts games or higher [eg needs at least 3 warlords before he can field one] As we will only be playing 750pts and/or 1,000pts it was going to be put aside as scenery until I found the chaos powers list and the Khorne fleet can take a Hulk for 650pts with out any major restrictions.
So here it is.

Which also gets a red spray...


Still needs more rocks underneath and maybe so more bitz on top will have a look later. Trying to convert up some bases will do that before
I start to under coat them. My lovely wife is going to sew up a cloth for us. I found some star printed quarters today which she will sew together
for us to use.

I may also be getting into A Call to Arms: Star Trek and the Star Wars flight game Fantasy flight is releasing this year. So my scenery for BFG will be used
alot by all three game systems....

Will post more pics as I paint them up...

well since no one wants to make any comments i'll add this pic of the Ork Fighter bombers I just made for my son. [yes Mord I am triple posting yet again]



going to make assault boats next and then try and figure out how to make some Dark Eldar fighters/bombers.

getting some bases tomorrow so will make up the bases later in the week and start to paint the DE as well. Waiting on the red spray paint to dry for the oks really thick and shinny will have to de-shine it BIG TIME but the red is really nice.

will post pics of the assault boats and other stuff when I have done them...

I really like your Eldar fleet. What are they built out of? How large are they? The orks look nice and orky too. I am looking forward to seeing these with some paint on them.

Like Sean I think that if I built a fleet I would not find any regular opponents to play. Not quite sure why I am always interested in these fringe games more than the mainstream games...

I've always been intrigued by BFG, I was going to start it up once upon a time but got scared off by the massive amount of conversion I'd most likely have to do for alot of fleets.

I love all your models though, the orks in particular, your genius at making them astounds me, very impressive stuff that is.

The dark eldar stuff looks okay too, but I'm not a huge fan of the eldars and don't like paying them compliments Smile

Your ships look great LGW. I really like the Dark Eldar escorts, the GW made Dark Eldar ships are pretty blah in my opinion but yours look deadly. Any plans to build some Tyranids as well?

I will be converting up some Nids eventually ...

I have the Hulk of Khorne to paint up and then give it some escorts or cruisers. Plus need to scratch build up some Fighters and Bombers for the Dark eldar
before I even start doing any Nid fleets.

I made one some years back trying to find the pics to show what I did but like most things they must have been deleted. They were alot of fun to make and very easy to do so. I need to get my hands on some nid bitz first and I want to make sure I get the right ones.

will post pics as the projects come together.

LGW

Nice paint job I like the colour scheme...

well here is the starting of my son's Ork fleet.


NB:had to not use the flash as it turned the red to a pinkish red colour, hence why the pic is so dark.

the pic has two Terror Cruisers with launch bays and Gorgag's Revenge Ork Battleship.
Also pictured are the starts of the Ork airforce. Each Terror ship I believe needs 12 fighter stands and Gorbag's Revenge will need 6-24 stands of
Fighter Bombers. Plus I am going to have to convert up some attack boats as well. Still trying to get my head around how many bases of Fighter bombers
each ship can make but I will get this confirmed before I start to make any more.

Will post pics of the Dark Eldar fleet soon and Just waiting for Bitz to arrive for my Rogue Trade Wolf pack fleet...

Cheers
LGW
