So, I know that at some point there was a thread around here that contained everyone's starship designs in one place... but heck if I can't find it.

Time to get it going again. Please feel free to contribute your own designs to this thread.

First off, here is an example of the Vagabond merchant trader. Common components only, no xenotech, no fancy bells and whistles. However with a massive +450 bonus to Trade objectives what it CAN do is make a Rogue Trader very, very rich. So you think opening trade routes is beneath a Rogue Trader's notice? That hauling goods and passengers is boring? Well good sir, consider this. Assuming that you exactly met the requirements for completing any one Trade Endeavour, this ship would typically give you an extra +13 profit factor (!!!) on top of the Endeavour's base PF reward. And so if you find that other Rogue Traders mock you for acting like a common merchant captain, you can console yourself knowing that after several successful Trade Endeavours you will be able to purchase the entire Dynasties of those who have criticized you. Several times over.

While Trade is this vessel's key strength, it also ably supports Exploration, Creed, or even Criminal Endeavours. It does, however, lack significant facilities to support Military Endeavours.

At only 29 ship points this would be a solid starter vessel for a Rogue Trader just coming into his or her Warrant. However a wise captain shouldn't expect too much from it in a fight, because while it is not entirely a pushover, it is not a warship by any stretch of the imagination.

The Void ships I/my players have put together can all be found at my campaign Wiki here, which just seems easier than posting each individually. Their flagship is a little weird with power and space by this point, but that's what happens when you allow a Jokaero to have free reign, and then get lost in the Warp for hundreds of days at a time.

Stellatus Lux
Ambition Class Cruiser

Ambition class cruisers are extremely rare within the Imperium. Rare- but not unknown. These are not old and rusting Navy cruisers saved from the wrecking yard, but shining new vessels built to the quixotic specifications of extremely wealthy individuals. Although no Ambition can truly be said to follow a "typical" configuration, the Stellatus Lux represents one example of what can be achieved with this class. Obviously, cost is no object here.

Although it is a cruiser, the Stellatus Lux is not truly a warship in the traditional sense. Instead, it is most properly described as a very well-armed and highly flexible exploration vessel. Most of the ship's major components such as the bridge, sensor array, and the extensive starchart collection are centered directly around the accomplishment of Exploration Endeavours. However, the ship is quite capable of providing excellent support to any Endeavour a Rogue Trader might be able to think of. Many other components, such as the Manufactorum and Munitorum, are designed to enhance the ship's self-sufficiency on long missions. The Manufactorum in particular ensures that the ship never wants for a lack of basic items and goods. Meanwhile the Trophy Room and Librarium await the opportunity to record the vessel's future accomplishments.

One of the ship's most notable features is a magnificent Arboretum. The meticulously tailored gardens overlap with the Observation Dome and the Temple-Shrine to create a truly unique place for crewmen to reflect on the magnitude of their duty, all while occasional cherubim flitter above. From a practical standpoint the Arboretum also shares a portion of the ship's air recycling duties, and the benefit of a small but steady trickle of fresh produce during extended missions cannot be overstated.

The beating heart of the Stellatus Lux is a Jovian-Pattern Class 4 plasma drive of magnificent craftsmanship. The plasma drive is complemented by a Miloslav H-616.b Warp Engine. Although thought of as a profane and dangerous piece of technology in some circles, the Miloslav drive offers an incredible reduction in warp travel time over moderate or long distances.

The Stellatus Lux is designed to convey a presence that is both glorious and intimidating. To this end the vessel is capable of jamming and supplanting an entire world's communications network with hymns to the Emperor. The effect this can have on a low-tech heathen population is typically a righteous fear that makes the population highly amenable to meeting the demands of the ship's masters. Of course, the dreadful beauty of the ship itself often has the same effect as well.

The Stellatus Lux boasts a level of firepower which is arguably comparable to that of a Navy cruiser. Grav-Culverin Broadside Batteries offer an extra level of tactical flexibility over standard Macrobatteries while a trio of Pyros Melta-Cannon Batteries provide additional ship-cracking punch at short range. Meanwhile the Munitorum ensures that the ship suffers from no shortage of ammunition. However, while it features some of the finest shields produced by the Lathes the Stellatus Lux does not possess the armor, resilience, or gunnery enhancements of a true fighting cruiser. It may therefore come off poorly if forced to engage such an opponent in an extended slugging match.

If the Stellatus Lux has one weakness it would be the massive harm that would occur to a Dynasty's investments and prestige if the ship were lost. However this is of little concern to the prideful men and women who ply the stars with this ship. The Stellatus Lux is the Dynasty embodied, and when it appears all lesser rivals will know that opportunities are best sought elsewhere.

Most Sword Class Frigates feature a pair of Sunsear laser batteries as their main armament. This particular Sword, the Bellator, has exchanged the Sunsear batteries for a pair of shorter ranged but much harder hitting Ryza plasma batteries. The Bellator is otherwise a fairly typical example of its class with a Command Bridge, powerful M201-b sensors, a Reinforced Prow, Extended Supply Vaults, and a Trophy Room to record the vessel's victories. The remaining components such as the plasma drive and warp engine are all time-proven, no-nonsense variants. As one might expect, crew comfort is a secondary concern on this vessel.

With its combination of speed, maneuverability, and devastating short-range firepower the Bellator can defeat any vessel of comparable tonnage. Given half a chance it could even threaten a cruiser.

Could type them in, but not sure they're worth the effort.
 
The flagship of one of my campaigns is here though.

I've got a few posted in various places, mostly in the two posts I have linked in my signature.  

 

The Emissary is a Sword-class Frigate: http://community.fan...ir/#entry827186

The One Eyed Cog is an Explorator Cruiser: http://community.fan...es/#entry900448

The Profit Stalker II is a sneaky Corvette: http://community.fan...es/#entry901190

I talk about the Imperial Providence, a typical Jericho-class Transport, here:  http://community.fan...e-2#entry970346

And the Guiding Light of Faithful Intent is an Ecclesiarchy Flagship:  http://community.fan...es/#entry920573

 

Now that I look, I also notice that I've never posted the RIghteous Fury, the Caine Dynasty Grand Cruiser... I'll have to fix that.

Not exactly our Rogue Trader ship but the Deathwatch Strike Vessel from Ark of Lost Souls statified with RT:

It's lethality lies primaritly in its stealth and detection capabilities - and having super-efficient lance batteries.

May the Light of the God-Emperor forever shine upon thine path

-Inscription above the Captain’s Chair aboard the Righteous Fury

 

The Righteous Fury is more a proto-battleship than a true Grand Cruiser. Originally christened the Righteous Path, the ship bears hull inscriptions and Omnissian prayer invocations that indicate she was built before the Great Crusade.

 

Tobias Caine discovered the ship in the Magros system floating as part of a several millenia-old space hulk, and employed a significant expeditionary force from the Lathe Worlds to pry the ancient vessel from the frozen asteroid. During the excavation work, an insidious Eldar plot destroyed the venerated and irreplaceable Lance relays at the heart of the vessel and killed the entire senior staff of the Mechanicus Expedition.

 

In return for saving the ship and sweeping a new regime into power of the Mechanicus Fleet, Caine’s dynasty was granted use of the ship after its reconstruction.

 

The terms of use for the Righteous Fury caused a second round of infighting and backstabbing inside of the Lathe Mechanicus, and left Caine with the Righteous Fury. He then set out into the Expanse to use his new flagship as the central hammer of his dynastic fleet.

 

Since entering the Expanse, the Righteous Fury has been refitted as a long range siege and exploration vessel. Its purpose is to push back the darkness of the Expanse, and bring the Emperor’s light to every corner that Tobias Caine can reach.

 

 

The Righteous Fury

 

Grand Cruiser

Speed: 5

Maneuverability: +5

Detection: +10

Turret Rating: 3

Space: 100/100

Power: 93/100

Weapons: 3 Port/3 Starboard

 

Complications: Adventurous(+10/-10 detection), Wrested from a Space Hulk

 

 

Essential Components:

Jovian Pattern Class 5 Drive, Strelov 2 Warp Engine, Warpsbane Hull, Gellar Field, Shipmaster’s Bridge, Vitae-pattern Life Sustainer, Voidsmans Quarters

 

Supplemental Components:

Extended Supply Vaults, Munitorium, Armored Prow, Temple-Shrine to the God-Emperor, Librarium Vaults, Trophy Halls, Observation Dome, Murder-Servitors, Barracks, Luxury Guest Quarters, Tenebro Maze

 

Weapons:

2x/2x Port/Starboard Mars Pattern Broadsides

1x/1x Port/Starboard Titanforge Lance Batteries

 

Tactics:

Tobias Caine will use his support ships to pin down the enemy vessels, then use the Righteous Fury to smash the toughest centers of resistance. One of his favored tactics is to use the armored prow to ram any ship in his forward arc, then board the enemy ship with the army of soldiers housed in the Righteous Fury’s barracks.

 

Crew:

3,250 Officers

95,000 Imperial Crew

10,000 Armsmen

35,000 Mechanicus Adepts

20,000 Multi-task Servitors

65,000 Murder Servitors

120,000 Light Infantry of the Damaris Expeditionary Forces

 

"All Ahead Full! Sound Boarding Stations!"

Ok, I guess I'll put some up as well. I apologise for the state of the first few ship sheets, they were done a while back, while I was still getting used to the RTSU bobh was doing.

I'll start off with the Dynasty's ship from my previous campaign, the Lucre Foedus. Designed as a floating casino and bordello, her weapons are wholly concealed behind false plating, rococo decorations and blingy minarets, while her plasma drive appears to be a plain Jovian-1. She's a predator, an ambush hunter that lures its prey into a false sense of security by being so obviously harmless and owned by someone with such stupendous wealth he can afford a 3km long display of egregiously bad taste, before turning and unleashing a surprising sting of self-propelled munitions.
Unfortunately, the RT bailed on this campaign during a succession crisis, while the ship was (as dictated by the Warrant I wrote for them) in orbit over Scintilla, and the players really didn't want to commit an act of piracy in front of the IN task force guarding a sector capital by stealing the ship before a replacement heir was settled, especially since they had just "convinced" the Inquisition to "loan" them a short battalion of storm troopers (figuring that at least some of them would be acting as spies).

Next up we have what's actually the first ship that I designed, as it was ported over (ok, and had the deign updated) from one of the first Dark Heresy games I ran, back before FFG took over the line from Black Industries- the Tactus Quod Vado. A small unrated sloop acquired by Inquisitor DeHaans as a covert transport, and maintained as a wholly "black" asset, unknown to the Inquisition at large. It was assigned to a cell of acolytes on a mission out to meet a confidential informer of the Inquisitor: the Commodore acting as port admiral at the IN Highport over 41-Pry. Due to a series of spectacularly stupid decisions (mixed with bad luck, admittedly), they managed to get their entire team killed and the ship impounded*. The Tactus Quod Vado's crew, with their ship locked down and their employers dead, quietly deserted, leaving the ship to be auctioned off as a derelict, without much in the way of an inspection done of her insides. She was bought for an absolute steal by the Seneschal of the current campaign (actual pirates), and in the years since then, careful inspection has turned up the (completely genuine) inquisitorial codes and encryption/decryption cogitators.
Thankfully, I had the foresight to have those built into the fabric of the ship, otherwise they'd have transferred them over to the hulk they salvaged and turned into their new flagship-

The HDMS Resolute. Built in late M35 and despatched to aid Sebastian Thor's Confederation of Light. It never arrived, and was listed as "Overdue, Presumed Lost in the Warp" in Naval records. Since the Resolute was a very powerful ship, and fully equipped to prosecute a war by herself, the IN understandably would rather like her back, but there was no sign.
Until, of course, a rather badly plotted Calculated Jump into a rather nasty warp squall deposited the Tactus Quod Vado into an unremarkable and uninhabited system just in time to catch a very weak automated vox beacon. Following it they found a vast grand cruiser, drifting in an eccentric orbit around a gas giant, all her internal spaces open to vacuum. Cautious void-suited exploration revealed no sign of the crew, nor any damage beyond some pockmarks from small-arms near the bridge, although many of the ship's servitors appeared to be going about the same routines their masters set for them millennia before, and all saviour pods in place, and the ship's munitorium and magazines appeared fully stocked**.
After several carefully planned trips to Footfall to recruit crew and gather supplies (plus a breathtaking dive deep into the atmosphere of the gas giant to provide pressure), they eventually claimed the Resolute as their own. The air still smells of the shock-heated atmosphere of the gas giant, and has been likened to "the waft of Mortarion's buttock-cleft after a month-and-a-half of ship's beans and soylens viridians".
They have, however been using the Resolute to leverage themselves from a hard-scrabble group of petty buccaneers into a burgeoning power beyond imperial space joining the race for the Dread Pearl, "liberating" and "pro-actively salvaging" vessels like the Hammer of Truth and the Clarion's Call

*Coincidentally, another group I was running at the same time managed to get the Inquisitor killed at around the same campaign date, on the other side of the Calixis sector.

** I worked out what a "full war load" might be for a ship of that class, and left it there. It wasn't all usable (millennia of vacuum followed by a sudden bath of burning-hot gases aren't great for delicate things), but it gave them a shopping list of stuff to replace, and it looked a little something like *scrabbles for notes* this:" includes 24 plasma torpedoes (6 of which have a "short-burn" guidance bus), 320 Thunderbolt fighters (split in 8 squadrons), 160 Marauder bombers (various patterns- split into 8 squadrons), 64 Eagle assault shuttles (split into 4 squadrons) and 64 support craft (cargo/personnel shuttles, SAR birds and a couple of rather luxurious cutters for the captain/VIPs)"

Those are the major ships around that my players have had hands on so far (and they've been very careful to sneak away any time it looks like the Navy is around- most of them are wanted dead or worse than dead for multiple crimes against the Imperium as a whole, the Inquisition, the Administratum, the Ecclesiarchy and at least one faction of the Adeptus Mechanicus, and those are just the really major players, and they technically don't own any of their ships beyond the Tactus Quod Vado.

Looking to the future, however, I have a concept ship floating around to introduce them to at some point, but rather than worry about spoilers, I think it can make its' debut here, rather than in battle with them.
It is, at the moment, a proof-of-concept design, and will likely be subject to revision, but hey, here goes:

Aspis
Endeavour class
Speed 6
Maneuver +12
Detection +25
Hull Integrity 60
Armour 20
Turret 2

Essential Components
Jovian pattern, class 3 plasma drive
Miloslav H-616.b warp drive
Standard Geller Field
Repulsor Field
Armoured Bridge
Vitae Life Sustainers
Bilge-Rat Quarters
X-470 Ultimo Array

Weapons
Port Jovian Missile Battery
Starboard Jovian Missile Battery
Prow Voss Torpedo Tubes
Prow Mars Torpedo Tubes

Augments and Enhncements
Minelayer Bay

Additional Facilities
Munitorium

Leftover Space: 7
Available Power: 14
Total SP cost: 64

The Aspis was built by *homeworld to be determined* as part of their tithes, in a bid to win a larger Naval contract. Her designers, taken with the potential of torpedo and missile systems did everything they could think of to cram as much as possible into a medium-sized combatant, and the Aspis is the result. A light cruiser with a torpedo launch capacity almost as heavy as a Retribution-class battleship, the Aspis was intended as a powerful sniper, dispatching enemy vessels with massive salvoes from beyond the range most could return fire. The Navy officers who oversaw her acceptance trials, however, were not convinced- while the torpedoes packed a heavy punch, and spare warheads used as area denial weapons, the basic hull was still merely that of a light cruiser, and had not been significantly up-armoured to protect the volatile ordnance magazines the design required. They also felt that the ship's broadsides were too anaemic to stand in the wall of battle among such venerable designs as the Lunar and Gothic class cruisers, or even lighter combatants such as Dauntless, or the Voss triumvirate of Endeavour, Endurance and Defiant classes. Similarly, the heavy ordnance loads carried meant that they would have to dedicate almost the same degree of logistical support to maintain combat readiness they would a grand cruiser, or even a battleship.
It was therefore decided that the Aspis, while passing fleet trials, was to be disposed of or mothballed as soon as possible, and was purchased by *spoiler*, who, as a die-hard militarist, is very happy with the Aspis, thank you very much...

===================
 
Newly recovered from a Stryxis "caravan" ship, the Fair Trade reeks of heretical Xenos technology. Originally the Favourable Trade owned and operated by a free captain, the vessel was renamed after its 'rescue' from a Stryxis ship preying on newly established astropathic relays. The vessel was fully owned and operated by its crew, so the Strom dynasty's claim on it was perfunctory.
 
It's unknown if the xenotech aboard the Orion class star clipper was installed by its previous human crew or by the Stryxis themselves. Its auspex arrays are highly adept at remaining unobtrusive, while its warp engine has been enhanced with unknown technology. So far, the xenotech remains stable and, while advanced, appears to be sustainable in the long term. 
 
Expanded cargo bays allow for megatons of goods to be shipped without any difficulty--the STC commerce bridge remains functional though there appears to be numerous xenos "enhancements" to it. Interestingly, the Orion also features a barracks that had been fully stocked with slaves. Not all of the living creatures in the slave-barracks were vat-grown, many were humans that have since been given sanctuary on Damaris. There were handfuls of other xenos species as well and they have disappeared completely.
 
To most augur arrays, the Fair Trade will appear to be unarmed--just another merchantman eager to make it to port with its valuable cargo. However, as it is configured currently, it makes for a very effect merchant raider, able to sneak up on its prey with the use of an empyrean mantle, before launching a crippling boarding action as it latches on with dozens of massive grapples and paralyzes its prey's systems. 
 
Should the Strom dynasty maintain the vessel among its tattered fleet, it will be a difficult ship to justify if its capabilities came to light. 
 
==================
 
A ship captured by my group (sans myself) two sessions ago. The specs are half mine, half the GM's, and our group's split on whether we keep it or not.
 
As the Rogue Trader the decision is mine in the end, and there seems to be more favour towards keeping it. I shall endeavour to convince the other players of the benefits of such a vessel, even if we don't use it for its obvious piratical tendencies.
 
Of course, the other half want to use it to pillage the trade routes...

Also worth mentioning: after seeing a question posted by Htsmithium, I worked up the Princely Prosperity, a Universe-class-sized frigate carrier:

Gift of Grace
LOKI Class Q-Ship 
 
Fat and well past its prime days, the Gift of Grace was relegated to secondary supply runs for the vast Strom dynasty fleet until House Strom's recent troubles. Suddenly, the vessel that was teetering between being sold to a chartist captain or sold to breaker yards became one of the vital few transports of the Stroms.
 
Like the Blessed Enterprise much of what made the Gift of Grace a suitable vessel of her class was enhanced (or marred, depending on the voidman you ask) by the addition of attack craft bays. Almost one third of its cargo capacity is taken up by squadrons of void fighters and bombers, as well as a large assortment of support ships and cargo haulers.
 
This, like its paired banks of macrocannons, are cunningly hidden from augurs and auspexes by baffles and void-shadows built into its hull. The refit was so ordered by the Strom's Heir-Designate and has proven prescient--the two bomber squadrons have been credited with disabling three pirate raiders in the months since they've entered the Koronus Expanse.
 
The ship, like almost all of the dynasty's transport assets, are currently seconded to various trading concerns out of Footfall and will remain so for quite some time.

A dark reputation has hung over the grand cruisers of the Repulsive class since their inception. Over the long millennia a disturbingly large number have either turned traitor or been captured by the arch-enemy- so many that some have forgotten that these ships were originally constructed in the Emperor's service.

This is a tragedy indeed for the Imperium, for these are graceful and powerful spacecraft, with a radically different weapon fit from other grand cruisers, fully realizing the ancient doctrine of a fast and powerful heavy warship. In the present day only a bare handful of these ship hulls remain uncorrupted. Most of these survivors (which is to say, very few indeed) are mothballed, sealed, and guarded in the Reserve Fleets of the various Segmentum Fortresses. The remainder- perhaps less than half a dozen in all of the Imperium- still ply the stars under the command of certain Rogue Traders.

Deep within the galleries of silent, mothballed ships in the Reserve Fleet at Cypra Mundi can be found the sleeping hull of a truly ancient grand cruiser. She is perhaps the only inactive, uncorrupted example of her class in all of the Segmentum. All records of her past have been purged, even her name. The only entry even acknowledging her existence is her slip designation, GCA-110X59.

Voidmen like to believe that each ship has a personality, even that each ship has a soul- a foolish thought, but they say it nonetheless. When deep in their cups the voidmen who tend to the sleeping ships of the Reserve Fleet at Cypra Mundi whisper about the ship known only as GCA-110X59. They say that she knows that she is alone. They say that somehow, she knows that nearly all of her sisters have fallen in disgrace. And they say that in her restless dreams she burns with a desire for vengeance.

Perhaps one day a truly remarkable individual will save this ship from her languishing fate and recognize her for what she is: not a cursed ship, but a still-sharp spear waiting to be thrust into the heart of the Enemy.

And, perhaps, that individual might one day notice a dusty engraving hidden behind some repairwork above the accessway to the bridge's lift. In elegantly inscribed High Gothic, a single word is written there, not only declaring her name but also the true name of her entire class: REPULSE.

Short of complete removal of her core cogitator, this flaw cannot be alleviated by any means.
