Battlefleet Gothic

Post by Greenkey15 » Thu Jun 04, 2009 8:38 am

Anyone ever heard of it? It's a very BrikWars-y game set in the universe of Warhammer 40k, made by Games Workshop. The rules are completely free, and it doesn't' cost as much to play as many GW games of the genre.

Yup. Even though it costs a lot less than 40k practically no-one plays.

actually i play this game when i can the hard part is getting people who have other fleets to play. damn good fun though looks like spartan games is going to put out a cheaper and probably better version soon. so i look forward to that. also other fleet battle games are Aerotech II (space large scale) and B5

Anyone ever tried making the ships out of LEGO? Maybe on LDD? I dunno, but it sounds like it could work!

LDD would be worst than real lego, just modify the rules and make them in lego.
large micro-scale ships would work.

There is no reason why it wouldn't work. Be sure to post up the result.

Anyone want to try to make ships out of LEGO? It would not have to look like the ships so a ship could be any ship in the game. We could try a BFG Forum Battle, too!

Whileit looks semi-cool, 40k is better. Why? I can go into lots of detail, but I will use just a single word: Carnafex. That sums it up.

Some of these rules look pretty good, especially their fighter rules. I may employ them.
However, they don't have frictionless movement (although they do simulate it better than some other games do), so I'm probably never going to adopt their rules verbatim.

My Emperor class Battleship can pwn anything smaller than Asia. In one hit.
