After exploring BFG a while a friend and I have looked into the ships of mars and the armageddon fleet.

The question is with the Mechanicus boxed sets (cruisers and light cruisers), do these come with enough parts to make the nesessary variants or will I have to scrounge parts from the imperial navy.

And my friend is interested in the Armageddon light cruisers and battlecruiser but can't find them for sale so are there any conversion ideas that would be easy enough to do?

Cheers.

Hi,

Adeptus Mechanicus:
all boxes come with enough parts to make any kind of variant. They are actually more generous with sprues.
Light cruisers come with 1 weapon sprue, cruisers with 2 and battleships with 3.
Good castings except the light cruiser. Nifty to assemble!

Armageddon:
In the store you can buy the Apocalypse Battleship. It has the Voss Prow. With some modelling on the prow (removing Nova, adding antennas) it can easily be used as an Oberon.
You can also use the Emperor model for a Oberon if you (he) want to.

The Light cruisers (Endeavour, Endurance, Defiant).... wella.... the sad story. GW made a master mould, casted about ~20 models. Master mould broke. It was such a b*tch for GW they decided to never ever make it again.
So now only a few people have those models.

Alternatives:
Dauntless
Adeptus Mechanicus Light Cruiser with AdMech symbols filed off.
Scratchbuilding (some made truly great ones).
