I'm looking to get into BFG, and the styx heavy cruiser from chaos really drew my eye.
Problem is I can't find the model on the website, and I don't see any mention of it on ebay.
Is it a separate model or can you make it from the cruiser kit? If it is separate, do you have any idea where I can get it?
Thanks in advance for the help.
It can be made from the plastic chaos cruiser box set, the one with two models in it. Good luck with BFG, you can get some more help at www.portmaw.com
Total 40k: >5000pts
total WFB: ~2000pts
I also enjoy good music, fine food, late night strolls on the beach and dancing in moonkin form :)
Cool, thanks for the info. I've been surfing Port Maw looking stuff up, I may join it soon but I first want to get the models (I already had a Librarium-online account).
Does it take a lot of conversion to make the styx since it's a heavy cruiser and not a cruiser?
Or is it pretty much straight out of the box?
Most cruiser/heavy cruiser variants are easy to make straight out of the box, its just a matter of putting the right weapons on them. There is a little booklet that shows the variants and what to put on to get them in the old starter kit, you may be able to find that (the info) online somewhere, maybe the specialist games site. Otherwise, look closely at the picture in the rulebook as it looks like what its meant to have on it. Pay close attention to the antenae and other items at the top of the ship, as they vary too.
Another question about the styx.
I just got some cruisers, and it looks like the Carrier bay thing that sticks out is a little, bland on the bottom. Is it supposed to fill in with something or is it actually that bland?
Well this seems the place to post about the Styx. I have a rather large problem with it. It's extortionate. The biggest ship I have in my 1500 is a Repulsive, (I have a thing for getting close to other people and ripping them a new one ) and to me the Styx just doesn't seem worth it. Although, the other Heavy Cruisers arent much better. Can anyone justify the Styx for me? It's a little.... bleh.
Long range weapons and Fighter/Bombers that can be lunched out of its bay
