View Full Version : BFG Black Ships?

Does anybody know if there is a miniature for the Inquisitorial black ships? I can find the rules, but not the mini. If not, what would be the most appropriate substitute?

Here is a step by step guide to how I built my Black Ship.
1. Cut the prow off an Imperial plastic Cruiser (save the prow for your next conversion).
2. Add the prow of a Space Marine Strike Cruiser. I used a bit of plastic sprue as a spacer to fit between the Strike Cruiser prow and the Imperial hull. Drill a small hole through all three items and pin with fine brass rod for extra strength before gluing.
3. Using the bottom bridge off a Space Marine battle barge, cut the Imperial hull down and back a little, until it fits.
4. You’ll need to slightly file the top and bottom of the battle barge batteries but they can be added to the sides of the cruiser hull as a perfect fit with just a little work.
5. Add three bombardment cannon turrets to the two existing openings on the dorsal surface of the cruiser, and place a third right on top of the Strike Cruiser prow.
6. Glue the dual engines from a Battle Barge on the underside of the plastic cruiser wings and add the side shields, also from the Battle Barge.
7. To make the ship disinctively Inquisitorial I added Inquisition sigils, purchased from Mail Order, on both the rear and front shields. If you don’t wish to order four sigil sprues, simply paint or decal as appropriate.

The grey knight strike cruiser from forgeworld is quite cool if you haven't got the time for conversions

It looks pretty much like a bastardization of Imperial and Space Marine bitz, using an Imperial Cruiser as a base.

I'd say basically any collection of visually-pleasing pieces jumbled together would suffice, but the GK Strike Cruiser really does look awesome if you think the bother of resin, cost, and waiting for it the post is worth it.
