[BFG] First Match of the year

Awesome, we found some time to play a nice game of battlefleet gothic. Two fleets of 2000p faced each other. It was a classical showdown between the empire of mankind and the forces of chaos. We played the scenario escalation. The chaos forces dominated the whole game. The imperial forces had no chance.
Sadly my camera produced corrupt pictures and that’s why there aren’t very much good pictures left.

[BFG] Gaming mat with space theme

Hi,

some weeks ago the bfg-fever broke out and I made some aquisitions. Among other things I purchased a really cool gaming mat on ebay from this merchant. There are plenty of those mats out there. The majority of them are dedicated to the star wars space game X-wing. This system can be played on a 90cmX90cm mat. I ordered the 120cmX180cm mat, which has the perfect size for medium and large gothic matches.

The cool thing about this mat, despite the fact that it looks really awesome, is that you can easily roll it out. I haven’t played on it yet, but I think the next game is not ralley far away 🙂

[BFG] New cruisers

I searched through my never ending bitz box (it’s really huge ;)) and found some old battlefleet gothic cruisers. The original painting theme is regal blue or kantor blue and white, but I wanted to try a new one.
The basecoat is black followed by white primer. I washed them with agrax earthshade and nuln oil at some areas, wich are more located to the center of the ship.
For the bow I shosed the original colors of my old fleet.

[BFG] Bombers, fighters and torpedos

Some months ago I purchased some bomber, fighter and torpedo models from http://www.shapeways.com. This is a platform where you can order 3d printed models and somebody took the time to create these ones. They should replace the card board markers from the battlefleet gothic base set.

I started with a black primer. After that I sprinkled some “stars” onto the base of the models with white color. I do this with all of my bfg models, because in my opinion it brings a bit more atmosphere. I painted all the ships and torpedos with two layers of astronomican grey. These 3d printed models have a rough surface und you need to paint two or more layers to get a got effect. The next step was a wash with nuln oil. Finally the models got a finish with a mix of white and astronomican grey and the torpedos got a red head with evil suns scarlet and squig orange.

I really like the result and I think I will paint more soon.
