Who needs an AdMech Light Cruiser?
This looks like it could work with a few symbols glued on

As we Imperials say, "The Emperor [class battleship] Protects..."

I was trawling Shapeways and did find some pretty suitable ones:

1. BFG Pre-Heresy Strike Cruiser

Probably the nicest, most detailed, most setting-appropriate out there. And probably mentioned before.

2. Clipper Fast Transport

Has the prow design we all know and love. Though no printed samples. Also, less detail than the first one. The designer also has a couple of other designs of smaller craft with the same aesthetic.

3. Gothic Battleship

This one captures the "Gothic", quite literally. Has a few other similar designs, as well as ground-based stuff too. Designer's page has a LOT of other designs. The prow, perhaps, can be acquired from some other sculptors. (There's one done by a sculptor on Resin Addict called Zeus Prows) Combined with the aforementioned prow, it'd be quite suitable I think:

Some cool SG Tau options here, some of the bigger ships have different modules you can swap out too.
I don't make the rules, I just think them up and write them down.

those zeus prows would be the best thing ever for me since i am building a small armageddon fleet, but i suck really bad at sculpting and scratchbuilding, hence i still have regular prows on all of my cruisers....  (which looks pretty awful in an armageddon fleet  :-\ )
is there ANY way i could get a hold of these prows?
Nova Cannons are for these sissies who as a kid too preferred to throw stones at the others from a safe distance rather than closing in and get into a real fight ;D

I think you can hit him up with an e-mail I guess. :) He already has a store in place; shouldn't be that much of an extension to put in a custom order, I think. Never know till you ask!

Actually, in an attempt to cheap out, I'm thinking of finding some use from EM-4's Universal Spacecraft Box, contents of which are:

12 ships for only GBP 2.55! :) Perhaps get a few boxes to represent different kinds of fighters/escorts.

Was just checking out the GZG store today, after seeing the earlier comparison pics posted by AndrewChristlieb, and after a game played between myself and an opponent using a GZG fleet on Sunday:
http://than-aleaiactaest.blogspot.co.nz/2013/05/battlefleet-gothic-red-versus-blue.html

I think we need to shift the GZG classes down a size to match the BFG scale, and then they work out to be the right scale... so in pic below:
GZG Superdreadnought become BFG Battleship
GZG Battleship becomes Cruiser
GZG Cruiser become BFG Light Cruiser

GZG IF (Islamic Federation) might make ok Necrons?
http://shop.groundzerogames.net/index.php?_a=viewCat&catId=47

Was never that keen on the original Necrons - always thought they didn't put quite enough imagination into the designs or something (e.g. just leaving it as a simple crescent?). These GZG IF ships have the same crescent theme incorporated into their design though and  I think painted up in the right way they would make very good proxies, maybe even slightly more pleasing in some ways. This is seven ships from the range, from escorts to Dreadnought size, though there are more in the range and can't find pics of them all.

(Edit), Last pic is one I found on the web of IF fleet and some guys lunch... ships painted in a black/silver/green theme though which is kind of what I was thinking of.

Got some, the scale is wrong for BFG I think. I.e. you can see cockpits which are means a human would be 3-4mm high. They make great aircraft proxies for Epic though!

Yes, I agree. I have 2 GZG fleets and both is that format. Battleships from GZG will be your cruisers. Dreadnoughts will be your battleships. Some of their escorts are too small so use the slightly larger type escorts. Cruisers from GZG make torp light cruisers.

I have no problem seeing those GZG Islamic Federation ships as Necrons for Adepticon 2014.
