BFG at OFCC

38 posts in this topic

I was indeed thinking of Friday night, I really only have some Imperial ships. I'll count up some points. 

Are you doing any events Friday? I was thinking maybe of doing kill team.

What rules set are you thinking of using?

Good question...I haven't played in ages, is there a LRB for BFG? Or what does the existing BFG community play rules wise?  Or do we just say "No Necrons" and play our ships :)

When GW shut down the Specialist Games line, the official forums were handed over to the community. They currently reside at Specialist-ArmsThe FAQ and Compendium 2010 are their version of the LRB, but were never considered by GW as official like the BB LRBs. There is a repository of official and community rules available...

...and I just realized andozane's link is the same one I was about to share.

And all of those are the links I shared in the stickied thread wooooo. 

Yeah Imperial versus chaos sounds super fun, how many points do we want to play each and/or total? Do we want to do a huge battle? Cuz that'd be cool

I say we use the above, but still stick to keeping it simple? Chaos vs Imperial?  Or I'm open...but I say we use the above link's rules?  

By the way, my opinion is easily swayed if someone feels strongly one way or another...

I say play straight up game...

 

I'm gonna be silent on this topic for a few weeks as I"m  heading out of town and probably won't be online much...so don't mistake my silence on loss of interest :)

Does anyone have good terrain? 

I have both scratch built models and photoshoped color printouts for various celestial phenomena. The last image is a full table mock up with sun-ward edge and large planet with asteroid belt

Good to hear! If people wanna post up who they will play for/ what ships they will bring we can build some teams! 

Sounds like we are sticking to just IN vs Chaos? I can bring either, but my Khaos fleet has never left dry dock, so, I am partial to them. Should I list points or models?

I only mentioned doing Imp vs Chaos due to as my memory tells me, certain fleets (i.e. Necrons) were terribly unbalanced.  I'm not sure on the other races.

 

Standard points is 1500 ?

Lets list points or models if you don't know their point costs. 

Are people willing to let other people use some of their fleets? 

Are we gonna do 1500 per side or per person? Looks like we have 3 or 4 people, I wouldnt mind having a huge fleet engagement. I'll post up what all I have, but I know I only have Imperial. 

I think I have a small bag of escort tyranid ships, is anyone interested?

I have a lot of ships--More than I realized before making this list. Some models are currently unassembled, and most are unpainted (but I will get any we want to use in ship-shape before the event). The Space Fleet ships were intended for using the rules in Warp Rift 31 & 32, but they could be proxied as something else. I am heavily weighted towards Imperial, but if the Space Marines, and Rogue Traders went traitor that would mostly balance out my forces.

I had some foam laying around so most of my cruisers have a nice cozy home inside that, but damn it's hard to find a good way to store these models. 

Magnetize the flight stand to the ship. There are a couple of products out there specifically for storing models like BFG. Although its relatively simple to makeshift a similar solution.
