View Full Version : Nice find (Space Marine Fleet)

13-03-2007, 19:04
Mostly a lurker but for the first time in ages I have a real reason to post; while I was cleaning my room (read cities of death area where I sleep) I came across the most curious thing. I think I found a full Space Marine fleet.
This of course fired my interest in BFG again as I can't for the life of me remember ever getting them..
Here's what I found:

1 battle barge (still sealed and packaged)
6 strike cruisers (4 still unpacked in blisters, two unpainted but missing stands)
11 escorts of unknown type, if there any differences at all (only played it twice YEARS ago) all without stands

My question really is, is what do I need (modelwise) to get this into a working fleet so I can paint my ships and get some deep space battles going..

Thanks guys

Is it? I was under the impression that I at least needed A LOT more escorts..

Technically, you don't need any escorts. The new 1.5 rulebook is out and available free at the SG website.


Check it out and give it a shot, its a great game.

Go with more Strike Cruisers they all pop out 2 squadrons of Thawks a ship, which are arqueabley the best ordinance in the game.
