View Full Version : [BFG] Venerable battlebarge rules

06-08-2006, 16:42
I'm currently looking for info on venerable battlebarges.

I can't find anything written on the specialist games website, I think the rules are in fanatic 6 or 7.

Can anyone help shed some light on it?

Bertcom1 said Let there be light, and lo, there was a tiny faint dim glow.

They were on the BFG website a long time ago, as part of the 3 revised SM fleet lists i.e. the Codex Planetary Assault list, the Crusade Fleet list and the Dominion list. These rules were pulled a while back because they weren't any good, really. They were full of loopholes, and were generally a bad thing. They also included a Fortress Monastery (a Ramilles star fort, except more expensive, with shorter range weapons - a useless idea)

As far as I can remember, it was any IN or Chaos Battleship or Grand cruiser, possibly also the cruisers, heavy and battle cruisers as well.

Pay more points (35 might be right), replace prow weapon with 6 torpedoes, you get boarding torpedoes as standard, and replace any attack craft with Thunderhawks at 2 squadrons for 1 TH.

I used to have a copy somewhere, but doesn't seem to be on this machine. It might be on my other one, but that is in bits right now.

I have the PDF, but at 750kb, it is too big to upload here...

Also, I could post the rules (if a mod says it's okay), but not if it will break the forum rules.

The rules are in Fanatic Magazine #6.

Its still avaliable from UK mail order.

That is straight from the Manage Attachments button under reply to thread. I actually have converted *.docs I wrote to pdfs so I could post them on Warseer.

Well, the PDF I have is about 750kb when zipped, and I got it from SG:p

Also, WS allows you to upload 150kb, so its totally academic anyway.
