[BFG] Discussion / Re: the ships of BFG armada 2

I have seen the "writen by Hellebore" in the Article and was wondering for a short moment if there could be some connection. Then i thought.....nah, he would have mentioned that.

I am honored.

You left a permanent imprint - your phoenix class inspired the stellar phoenix class from BFG:Fr. So there is a chance that even people who have never seen the warprift article are influenced by your work.



Keep us informed about your printing progress, as far as i know the phoenix class is not buyable on shapeways.

Modeling & painting / [WM] Empire Ostland
« Last post by industrialtrousers on Yesterday at 10:26:27 PM »
After a few trials I'm going with an Ostland colour scheme for the Empire troops I've accumulated very slowly. I've made a start but there are a couple of units I'd like to do.

Bull Warriors. I'm a unit of Greatswords short so if anyone has a spare unit of these.

The unit I thought might be an interesting modelling challenge is some knights on bulls. I think some Pendraken oxen with armour on would do the trick for the mount. ill have to convert from tb line knights for the riders though. if anyone has any other ideas then sing out.

Hahaha, wow this is pretty funny.

I wrote that entry for the Phoenix in warp rift and completely forgot about it. It has been 9 years...

Ive been out of the game for a while - not long after that article actually.

I'd seen armada 2 with its new names and thought it had added some things. But you're right in that they're just weapon load outs.

Ha, I can't believe rules I wrote 10 years ago are still in circulation.


I'm getting back into BFG by 3d printing at home. I can actually print up a version of the Phoenix.

Ähm...no. There is no new craftworld ship in BFG Armada II.

You can build the same Wraithships and the same Dragonships (you just have to choose the weapons).

In fact, the Tabletop has more Craftworld ships (50% of the Weaopon Layouts have a Ghostship Variant).


And there are already rules for many Craftworld Ships that are not present in BFG Armada II (Wraithscorpion, Ghosthunter/Warphunter, Specter/Banshee, Naiad, Void Dragon, Phoenix, Stellar Phoenix....).



To your Question: Yes, i have incorporated the Craftworld Ships from BFG Armada II. Before BFG Armada II was released.  ;D

All you need for doing this is the "Yriels Raiders" document. If you want even more ships you need the "Add-On Eldar VM EN V2.0" document for everything exept the Phoenix - the Rules for the Phoenix are in Warprift 30.


Edit: For the Corsairs: The Kurnous and the Vaul are from BFG Armada I (but are not present in the Tabletop) - and the Solaris from BFG Armada I+II is the Icarus class from "Book of Nemesis".


I think you can buy models on Shapeways in good Quality (could be more easy than finding ships to use for a conversion).

Modeling & painting / Re: [WM] Stormwind Rails Against the Lead Mountain

The snow is hard to describe.  I use a small (knackered) paint brush to dip it out and put it on and wet the brush to try and tamp down the snow and make it settle into the pumice grit base rather than float on top.

I experimented with using 'Ardcoat to try and make the snow look more like slush but it didn't work.  I'm sure the right varnish or medium might succeed in that, though.

If I'd kept my dwarves I would have painted them blue and white like this!  In the end it was the pointy ears I did in this scheme, ha ha.

I tried painting things like this to begin with, but eventually I had to force myself to clear my desk of everything but one unit and complete it one at a time!

Those look great. Does the snow stuff look wet in real life?
