Tried and True

Ten armies to choose from now.

A 500-1000pt battle is fairly quick. Ships point values typically range from 30-400pt a pop though you can get Fortresses and such.

I have the rulebook if anyone wants to give it a look.

Check out models here Very Happy

I played a few games back in the day, seemed like a pretty amazing game (albeit under supported).

Lots of good fanatic stuff going on with it still, new rules etc.

I'd be interested in trying some out at some point.

If there is enough players interested I do not mind buying and painting up two fleets for demo purposes.

Classic Imperial versus Orks for example. A few Frigates and Gunships along with some basic Cruisers would be enough. Simple

I think I'd cast or make my own... But I'd be up for a demo game.

Man, I know some of you guys are new to the GW System so here are a few helpful hints for all the noobs out there who think there is a reason to play old games....

Step 1. Go to Site
http://www.specialist-games.com/Default.asp

Step 2. Read Rules
http://www.specialist-games.com/battlefleetgothic/rulebook.asp

Step 3. Realize game is EXTREMELY un-balanced get REALLY bored playing.

Step 4. Repeat step 1. Finding a new game to play and continuing to follow steps until all options exahsted then go back to playing 40k....


BTW most of the rulebooks are here for the specialty games.

GL lol!

I'd be willing to play, although I don't know if I have the cash in invest in a fleet right now. I remember a crossover battle report in WD that was pretty cool. Space marines taking an enemy space cannon mounted on a planet, and that affected how many turns the giant laser thing got to shoot in the BFG game. We could do some similar things, although I think the other way around would be better. Play a BFG game and then maybe the winning side gets an orbital bombardment or something in 40K.

CJ, this is a post about BFG, make another post about Necromunda if you want to talk about it.

Don't derail Marc's post.

Strike 1.

Strike 1?

STRIKE 1!?!?!?!?

Do a BFG game where someone has to invade someone else, make a boarding action, then play a combat patrol to represent that.

They supposidly revised the game sometime after I stopped. If they fixed it up then good for them improving it. Not sure about reinvesting in a game I sold off long ago.

Inspite of the problems with fighters I very much enjoyed the wacky sailing rules for the Eldar.

Yup, they released a free online version of the book with the errata included.

You can find it here

If you clear off that middle table that has the black felt covering - then you already have an appropriate surface color to play on.
