Greetings to all spacefaring folk.
After much discussion and support, witness the creation of the Pirate's Haven clan. This clan is for Battlefleet Gothic Players. Anyone interested in BFG is welcome to join. The clan will be a LO based club to promote the game sytem and create an article base for Battlefleet Gothic. To join, simply PM me and then post some info about yourself on this thread. For the moment, we are simply gathering info on members. Ranks and titles will be applied soon.
When posting about yourself, I need to know:
Where you are from (so we have a rough Idea of the spread of "the clan")
What fleets you collect.
What your specialism is in BFG (e.g. painting, tactis, scenery etc.)
Whether you would write an article at some point.
If you have a games workshop store/ gaming club near you.
It would be nice If peolple could submit articles according to their specialism/ fleet. New players are not excluded from this as even a "Why I got into BFG" article would be invaluable to potential players. So for example:
Username: Will J.
Location: Abergavenny, Wales, UK.
Fleets: Imperial, Chaos, Eldar.
Specialism: Painting and Scenery.
Article potential: Scenery articles.
Local GW store/ Gaming club: GW Cardiff.
So if you are interested in being a part of a BFG online community, please feel free to join up and post in the BFG forum or this thread from time to time.

Hi all, I will just repost my data in this topic. I started Gothic before 40k about 3-4 years ago in fact, and I am recently getting back into it with a group of friends,

OK people, seeing as we have a good number of founding members, lets get to buisiness.
Rogoth had some very interesting ideas about goals to result from the "mission statement." For clarity, and for the benefit of those who may join in the future here's the list again:
"To promote Battlefleet gothic as a game system.
To introduce new players to the game, through LO and clubs/ stores/ freinds.
To produce a range of source material that will be useful for both veterans and newcomers.
To foster a "community spirit" within the LO BFG players."
As for actual goals, like Rogoth said, we should try to learn the rules of at least one extra fleet on top of our existing ones. For me it will be Tau protector fleets.
I would like everyone (who would like to) to write or co- write an article of their choice. It need only be a short one. To get ourselves goin we should also agree on some kind of deadline to work to. But this is only if everyone has time and energy, I know that LO is probably low on your lists of priorities. I will begin working on a scenery article about how I made my orbital dock and defence platforms.
Once we have enough members, we will also begin talk of an e-mail campaign or petition to get our escorts back.
One thing I would really like to see is an expansion to the BFG system. House rules and such would be lovely. I am currently working on a new race of merchantmen, probably for use with Tau. This would just be cool to see.
Everyone has shown an impressive amount of enthusiasm for this, so lets see if we can make it wrk !
By the way, I would like everyone to put a link to the Haven in their sig if possible, if nothing else peolpe will know we exist that way. I've made a sig image, does anyone have anwhere to host it?
WE HAVE A SIGNATURE!!
If you want it here's the url:
If anyone wants to make a better one, feel free. I threw that one together this afternoon just so we have one .
Right copy that to your sig, and remove the * at the start, remove the * in the [img] thing, and it should make the picture appear and if you click the picture, it will lead you here.
(The Pirate's Haven)
Click the pic and it opens this thread.
Location: Dallas, Texas
Fleets: Dark Eldar (1500) and Imperial (1500)
Specialization: Hit and run raiding parties
Article Specialization: The correct usage of "hit-and-run" tactics (aka how to be a good pirate and not a dead one)
Local GW Store/Gaming club: Gamesworkshop at Grapevine Mills Mall and Thor's Hammer in Austin, Texas when I'm away from home (and in Austin, Texas)
My 40K Armies:
- Thousand Sons
- Mordian Imperial Guard
- Dark Eldar
My Fantasy Armies:
- Lhamian Vampire Counts
You said this was open to everyone, so why shouldn't I get word out about BFG? Probalbly the least typo- and ambiguity-ridden games sytem GW has made.
Location: Colchester, Essex, UK.
Fleets: Imperial, technically Tyranids&Chaos.
Specialism: Writing names in very small letters on flying bases.
Article potential: I'll get back to you.....
Local GW store/ Gaming club: GW Colchester, maybe GW Ipswich.
A very warm welcom to MonsierCartier and Neferata. OK people, do we want any kind of rank system here? It could be fun, so lets throw some ideas around. If its generally felt that its unnecessary, we won't do it. Just thought I'd give you guys the option . Articles are on the way. From me, you'll get a brand new armed merchant ship (complete with assembly guide) for use with Tau or Eldar, or as rogue traders in imperial fleets.
