Rapid deployment strategy

     A few years back while I was getting back into wargaming properly after finishing uni, I found myself building a space marine army and wanting a fleet to go with it. Instead, I got distracted, joined a gaming club and left most of my GW stuff in the rear view mirror, as new projects were so much more interesting. Then I decided at the start of this year to pick up the idea again to make a properly slow burn project out of it, buying a ship every month of so whenever I saw one cheap enough, putting them into storage until I had enough to get going with. 

    So here is my space marine battlefleet gothic fleet for the Knights of Dorn chapter. A Battlebarge, three Strike Cruisers, a squadron of Firestorm Frigates and a squadron of Cobra Destroyers. That should keep me going for a while. . . .

 The battlebarge, the big beast of the fleet. As it's the only one the chapter has (I have fluff and everything for this chaper) I figured it would be best to upgun it with extra turrets from a sprue I'd picked up somewhere or other.

The Firestorm frigates. I'm really hoping these ae going to have a real pumch.

Now to get a game in. Thanks for reading.

    1. Thanks Herbert, and yeah I do. I got into Firestorm Armada for a while but I found the ships just turned me off.

  2. Cool stuff, Mike. BFG was one of those game that I just never got around to - though I think the models are some of the best spaceship models on the market!

    Can I just take this opportunity to point out that I've moved blog - so you're blogroll won't update with my new details. If you'd like to continue to follow me here are the details:

    2. Thank you. Messing up my blog followers feeds wasn't something I anticipated when I swapped addresses.
