as one of my plans (this been the biggest) i am going to collect the entire Dark angels chapter, should i do battlefleet gothic fleet for them too, i like the idea of it and the models but is the game that good really?

The games alright, just watch out for fighters, bombers and torpedos. My favourite tactic ramming my carrier down your neck and then launching bombers when you can\'t intercept them.

Although the lack of support it gets like every other specialist game is scary. One man to do it all, used to be a team now it\'s one man.

Epic used to be one of the core games, after Warhammer and 40k, I guess the kiddys couldn\'t understand the principles and
Bye bye it went.

Don\'t even get me started on Space Hulk, what no Im not putting the coat on. Ok time to go see Hawke in the nice warm room again........:whistle:

If you find a group of motivated veteran players like I did at my local 40K gaming store, it will be an awesome game.

I enjoy this game and I just ordered 2000 points on a Necron fleet and I am so happy with their rules. Necrons are fast and their armour and weapons are just plain crazy.

Next stop will be \"EPIC!\"

We are starting a Battlefleet gothic campaign at the local store (around 10 players), so if anyone has any pointers for my necron fleet I will appreciated a lot. :)

The battles are going to involve everything from space clashes upto 40K encounters in different planets. :woohoo: is going to be huge!!!

BFG is an awesome game, but like any other you need players, so get a group sorted or you\'ll end up not enjoying it very much.

Lots of tactical play involved, and great scenic potential (making planets anyone??) so do it!

I have been interested in BFG but I currently do not have enough money to expand into it. I also enjoy reading the BFG battle reports but there is a big lack in them. Its hard to find them on the web or anywhere else for that matter. Does anyone know of a good BFG battle report sites that updates often. Mabey Astro can start postin BFG reports.

BFG reports are welcome here, as are Necromunda, so if any BFG players out there care to try, please post a few batreps on here for the lesser initiated members!

Should I post the battle report under this topic and section?

Teslatrooper - I would post it here in \"Other GW games\" - In the new astro there will be a new specialist game area, I will move posts as required then.

Great, thank you. As soon as the campaign (sometime this week) starts I will post some battle reports here.

The BFG battle-reports are some of the best I have read across the net, especially those at DakkaDakka.

Look forward to yours Tesla.
