I'll look through the stats for those ships and let you know what makes them different to other ones so we can craft fitting rules for them

By the way, since you've also included fan produced models in the rules (Crusade Pattern Strike Cruiser), how about including some other fan productions, I'm thinking the Heresy Barge here, but also the amazing models by Battlegroup Helios, and maybe even some of these designs. :)

Oh, and Gloriana class ships of course! The Vengeful Spirit and Macragge's Honour seemed to have make comebacks in the video game Battlefleet Gothic Armada 2.

Dreadnoughts (IE Glorianas) are planned for the last section of the book. Where as alot of these don't belong in main BFG, ships of that class don't really either, so I was going to treat them differently and special and its going to take a lot of brainstorming and work to get them right. Don't want to hold up the rest for them.

A few fan creations were to match the most common 3rd party things out there.

The problem with Battlegroup Helios, is as awesome of suclpts as they are, they really are just alternatives to the main line. Like you can clearly make a Lunar class or Mars Class or Tyrant etc. etc. Same for their escorts. And the Novan ships are just SM Replacements.

Basically they are like a separate hull form, like Kar Duniash vessels or Voss Pattern ships.

Updated. Jericho Pilgrim ship and RT Dynasty fleet list completed. Trying something weird and new messing with LD and fleet commanders in that list.

Same link as always, but provided again for expedience https://www.dropbox.com/s/zxtz8dsplzqa2qk/ASC%202.0%20draft.pdf?dl=0

Hmm, the Novan Fast Cruiser fits more with the old school (Space Fleet) Imperial Navy models, dunno if you have rules for those yet. The Felis Stealth Ship was conceptually inspired by the Death Watch Kill Ship, which also doesn't have rules yet.

looking again I guess they are more varied. The fast cruiser is the siluria in BFG:XR already.

Have you checked the stealth option from the khareshi expanse rules I added several years ago?
