Battlefleet Anaar project
« on: April 24, 2016, 11:49:28 PM »
So I decided it might be fun to write up my own sector and its Battlefleet. When I began I decided to build it around following criteria:

-I wanted it to be a cruiser fleet as I like playing cruisers.
-I put it into Pacificus Segmentum, which is perhaps bit overlooked within the lore.
-I wanted to draw from Fennoscandian mythology and nomenclature which has been underutilized in 40k universe.
-I wanted to describe 'average' sector which doesn't have access to all the best ships and has to get by with various improvisations and old ships (which meant including Chaos ships etc).
-A new local alien race
-Also I might want to use it in the future in Dark Heresy or Rogue Trader campaigns, so plenty of potentially useful fluff for that.

And fun it was but it turned out bit more work than I expected. It is still work-in progress, I will be adding some more fluff and/or changing what has been written. Also I haven't really playtested it, so any critique or improvements are gladly accepted. Later on I discovered that Battlefleet Calixis/Koronus already explored many similar ideas as I did but I didn't want to change my designs.

Anyway, here goes. If you don't feel like wading through all the fluff and history, just jump to page 21 where Fleet List is.
(Also report typoes and grammatical errors, English is not my native language...)
