Here's the caveats:

1. Preference will be on cruiser or battleship designs that actually made it into BFG magazine, Fanatic, etc., but anything  is on the table.

2. NOTHING larger than a battleship! No 14HP+ monstrosities!

3. No special weapon mechanic! "This cruiser is equipped with a Wave Matter Motion Destroyer: If it hits a targget less than 30cm away, roll 2D6. On a roll of 12, the target is destroyed! On a roll of 2, the Wave Matter Motion Destroyer causes the firing ship to take 2D6 Fire criticals!" Yeah, nothing like that.

Well, that's it. Tell me what you think!

I would really like the imperial blackship be made official.  I love the rules, its extremely fluffy, and it gives the space marines a desperately needed battlecruiser class vessel.

Looking back over the various imperial vessels in those magazines, I think I'd have to agree with the black ship. The rest just seem too game changing or un-navy like.

To be honest, rather than having a new ship become legal, I'd rather a new fleet list that adds the oberon and grand cruisers or some list that just has more ships accessible. Maybe and IN only armageddon style list with the 1:1 ratio?

I'd like to see the other plastic kit options made legal, I.e. lance carrier, all lb carriers etc, they don't even have to be worth taking (kinda like the tyrant lol) but at least they'd be there then.

It'd also be fluffy as the imperials work as fleets not a gathering if separate ships.

if I had to pick one it'd be a carrier with maybe some dorsal lances or maybe a nc, what was the smotherman class cartier thing, I forget?

Nah, all launch bay variant will never be accepted in an Imperial fleet.


But, next to the Governor, I think the Shadow of Vengeance from the Book of Nemesis is truly great.

Which is odd really as I'd expect an all launch bay variant to be one of those things that looks cool on paper but would be so expensive/compromised in reality you'd rarely take it as it'd make more sense to take an emperor instead. The dominion from the bon looks good as well.

What was the governor?

A bc version of the gothic would rock as well.

the governor is a good choice.

And your hopes and dreams for the lance BC have already been answered, it's called the Armageddon.
If they made a six lance cruiser, why take the Apoc?

The all-carrier cruiser doesn't fit the fluff of the imperial navy (they are moving away from carrier based combat)

Good choice with the governor GC, by the way.  If the blackship were not there, it would be my first choice.

Could anyone post the stats of the suggested vessals, as i dont remember them all.
I always found the Fast Battleship an interesting idea even though i dont remember if the stats were balanced.

The Nemesis class fleet carrier (12 launch bays and 3 dorsal lances on an Emperor hull).

Darn,

I put a veto on all this carrier wishes for the Imperial Navy.

The IN is not a carrier fleet and should not be one.


Not that I have a veto....

First pick: Magazin stats of the Oberon (maybe with corrected points according to the increase of the Emperor to 365. heck Iīd pay 365 if I could play the long range Oberon as leagal as the Emperor).

the other is a tie between Blackship and Govenor, one adds a lot more fluff to the IN and the other is a GC with front weapons and can support IN fleet tactics (the armada GCs donīt fit there)

Oh, that's a governor, I'd got that in my head as a macharus.

Yeah I like that one.

1. Improve the overlord batteries to get the targeting matrix option to avoid rightward shift. If anything the overlord should have this option rather than the Mars.

2. Give option for Armageddon battlecruiser to take a nova cannon ( since it started life as a Lunar)
