The prow of an Orion Clipper isn't a million miles away from that of a Sword class Frigate... maybe clip the prow off a sword and mount it on a transport? You might need to thin the Transport down a bit, as it might be a bit bulky for the sleek-looking Orion class.

Where have you seen a pic of an Orion? I can't find one anyplace.

I was thinking of the prow of the Dauntless too. I am going to carve one of these extra cruisers down as thin as possible, might even chop two to of them up.

I have noticed the structure behind the bridge on the basic Lunar cruiser which sit above the engines, and if I can get three of these, they will encompass the main body forward. I will place the bridge as far aft as possible. I have considered using what are the normal fins of the Lunar cruiser as the keel fin. Keeping its width to 400 meters is the real issue.

If you want RT vessels, try looking for Sword Class Frigates and  Cobra destroyers. I saw some of those on Ebay. Forge World also got Q-ships and Armed Freighters for sale. Both are excellent for RT.

 

 

I have trying to corner the market on the figs on ebay right now! Wish me luck, unless you are bidding against me! I must be bidding on 30 lots right now in the hopes of getting just a few ships to work with.

If it's you bidding against me on the two space marine strike cruisers, stop.  I need them for my Armageddon fleetlist.

No, not me. I did not even see them. I did see where a Space Marine Battle Barge was in a lot of a boxed set, went for about $50. I am bidding on a bunch of cruisers and light cruisers listed seperately.

I found what you are bidding on. I never actually saw these, but I do not want them. I did see a pack of Gladius Frigates you could probably use, just type in gladius class frigates. They are in Ontario.

What else are you looking for? What do you have for trade? Maybe we can work together.....

Hi,

new official draft rules for Rogue Traders in Battlefleet Gothic:

http://www.sg.tacticalwargames.net/forum/index.php?topic=1679.0

 

And in Warp Rift issue 17 you can see another take on Rogue Traders in BFG

http://www.tacticalwargames.net/archive/bfgmag/index.html

 

In issue 18 you can see my Rogue Trader Character ship.

Warp Rift may be inspiring in every BFG related way.

And here is my fleet: (Rogue Trader with tenders, escorts and some alien allies)

Hi,

more like a sneak return into the jungle. Posted around the time of release (RT corebook) on this forum.

Eh, I have high hopes for the ship book when it gets released.  It'd be nice to get some chaos ship hulls.

So who has a picture of an Orion class?

I just won a bunch of ships on Ebay, and more to come. I am going to turn them all into RT ships: repaint, alter, you name it.

What about the old Space Fleet ships? I know some of them are ridiculous, but some of them are ok. Any thoughts on these?

Hi,

on the Orion, are you searching a model or the rules?

Ruleswise I could find this, the Orion Battlecruiser:

http://yenlowang.fre...pendium_1.4.pdf

page 22, thus an upgraded Lunar class. All weapon ranges to 45cm plus a str2 dorsal lance at long range.

Mind you, within BFG, unofficial ship.

Modelwise a plain Lunar with dorsal turrets. Ofcourse 'pimped Rogue Trader coolness' allowed.

 

Here is a site which shows the old Space fleet models:

www.solegends.com/citsfleet/index.htm

pretty cool indeed. I have two of the small Eldar Shadowhunters. They blend perfectly with the current line of Craftworld Eldar ships.

He's probably talking about the Orion fast clipper.  (Into the Storm)

The art in Into the Storm suggests a modified sword class, but... the fast clipper from BFG used the old Thunderbolt cruiser from BFG.

Well, the dimensions are clearly 3km by .4 km. The Thunderbolt is totally not built like that. The Sword is a lot closer in general shape, just needs to be doubled in length. If I can get a hold of the bits for ships, I can conjure up something.
