Well, my painting / conversion table is calling for a update, having been for about a year without a home pc there's alot of projects that need uploading and some new ones, how it went (and is still) going is as follows:
Starting off with Battlefleet Gothic, There's a 750 point fleet completed (Need to do detail paint, e.g. Squadron Insignia / Noses perfected / gold metalwork "trim"), an upgrade 1,000 point fleet (that needs gold detailing) then to 1,500 and 2,000 point fleet (and transports / ground defenses) that need finishing converting and painting to put up
The basic mission "Cruiser Clash"
A Imperial Mars Class Battle Cruiser
- Dorsal lances, Hard as nails a nova cannon and It Launches fighters (only as many as required to kill opposing torpedoes and bombers) and/or Bombers while going slow (you weren't fast anyway!) with Nova Cannon blazing away -What's not to like?
What's the drawback - you need three other cruisers to field it ? - guess what - even the basic "Cruiser clash" mission requires 4... best make the other three low points then...
(P.s. only basic paint job in photo, detail to be finished later - the nose and gold mechanical bits etc need doing)
Imperial Tyrant Class Cruiser
(Game reasons for selection / paint job status to be filled in later, as with those below)
Imperial Dauntless Class Light Cruiser
Space Marine Strike Cruiser
## Please note, The SM Strike Cruiser is NOT legally a 4th Cruiser - You need your opponents permission to do mixed Gothic Imperial Ships and Space Marine Craft, but those are my armies:
IG Cadians (Grey being used predominantly in the Imperial ships), some IG Catachans (as per Tyrant Class being Green), SM Dark Angels (as per the Strike Cruiser being DA Green and the Hunter Destroyers to be posted) SM Adeptus Mechanicus (as per the 40k near complete converted & painted 2,250 point 40K army, Adeptus Mech will be represented by a F/W Strike Cruiser in the larger BFG fleet too)
There are also 5x Sword Frigates and some counters (Torpedo / Ordnance Loaded / Planetary Defences that have progressed alot since this photo)
- With a Fleet Admiral and 1x re-roll that'd make it 1,000 points total, - the photo needs updating as they're all in a gaming state, To be taken and uploaded next time I'm on LO with time to do so. I'll also include Planetary empires bits I've made (Including a Fortress of Redemtion epic scale MINI which can be used as ground defences (Lance Battery and Missile Launcher combined) or a Marker in Planetary Empires (as a 40k DA player I just couldn't resist it.)

Some very nice ships sir. Makes me think sadly of by own marine fleet - not even basecoated yet. Rep for posting BFG models, I havn't seen any in ages.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Note for everyone else: The Emperor Class Battleship is HUGE - and requires alot of pinning. do not try to do this when extremely hungover or It may look like a total mess. 4 pin holes - all clipped off and fined back down after being done wrong, the base section (the size of a notepad but metal) is now secured by the flying stem being pinned. with 3 broken stems discarded along the way.
However, the planetary defence counters are lookin great, and there's more to come soon
