[BFG] The Survivors
« on: May 08, 2013, 06:00:28 PM »
Well, i thought its time to post some pictures of my fleets and projects to show to the community that i don't just talk and ask silly questions, but that i actually do get some serious work done  ;) 
(i'm 19 and just been into BFG for about a year now, so my painting skills are at best average, don't expect too much, except for a pretty massive fleet  ;D )


The title actually has two sides:

one is the fluff one, my BFG fleet(s) are the surviving part of a crusade fleet after a little incident during a reentry after a warp travel involving the fleets emperor battleship and a space hulk... featuring an imploding warpdrive  ;D
(i am writing an entire book about the backstory, maybe if sometime i'll get to translating it, i might post some of it on this forum... or at least the important bit :D )

the other side is that these ships are the survivors of the "SG heresy", how i call the entire thing with GW trying to silently kill SG.
survivors as in "all the fleets are at playable size and i am just missing very few things".



i start off this WIP thread with a list of all the things i have, with two information in brackets to each ship: how i got it (new (meaning from the local GW store), or from ebay) and what its current status is (done, in progress, needs work, or still new in box).

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

the two finished mars class CB of battlefleet armageddon:



crude paintjob, since these were ebay ships with a really crappy and massively thick paintjob on them, couldn't get anything better out of these than that...  (might work over some details again tho if i find the time)  :-\ 
but looks ok from some distance.

btw, i know the picture quality is not the best, i'm a pretty crappy photographer...  but since my painting skills are not exactly the best either, it doesn't matter too much, i guess  ::)

oh heck no, if you look at them closer (in RL), they actually do look pretty bad.

i plan to completely repaint them in the ultima sheme, the "daemon slayer" CA was one of those blue-white ebay ships, and now take a look at it how it looks now  :D
