I always like ships that are a bit different to the norm of Star Trek ships we get on here, something different obviously to put up and review, but I like the variety. This just further proves the point though that this game doesn't only support Star Trek play, but more on this later. What we have is a ship of the Imperial, from the hit-game Battlefleet Gothic, a spawn from the table-top game Warhammer 40K. The Imperial (of men) is one of the many races vying for planetary conquest along with the expansion of their empire in the futuristic universe. Call this a sample then of the game. It's a powerful one at that.
Don't be deceived however by the large amount of weapons that this ship has and believe me, it has a lot, however they've been fire-arc'd meaning wherever you attack this beast, it will fire 'something' at you at the very least (which, for note, I recommend attacking from the back, it's not quite as painful). The brilliance is, it's not all beams and cannons in one direction. The devastating forward rails will grill you if you wonder in front, whilst the barrage of pulses from the sides will get at your fleet. In short, this is a fleet buster. The ship it self does look really quite good, especially for a first attempt. Whilst not being fully in-the-know of BFG, I DO know this is pretty damn close to the original design, so a particular well done for that (as well as using advanced techniques with the weapons). Complete with wireframe and build button, this is a download for all your curious people out there and anybody else who likes to dabble a bit in the 40K universe. Sufficed to say, I recommend it.
Star Trek Armada 2 Battlefleet Gothic Imperial Lunar Class Cruiser By ragnar603 Ok so to you people who wanted a Battlefleet Gothic ships and those who have no idea what this ship is or what its from, please take a look. Battlefleet Gothic is a tabletop game set in the universe of Warhammer 40K, except instead of having men, you have the enormous ships that the races of 40K use. Its a great game, requiring some tactical skill to play. But it pays off when you laugh at your opponents burning wrecks ;) This ship has been designed from scratch, by me, with the help of practically every modelling tutorial on this site. Those things really help, thanks guys =D Also, its better if you put this on the formation menu 'circle', it looks more 'canon' and seems better =D Contained within this: ODF's SOD Textures (ship, buildbutton and wireframe) Sprites (for those who need them) Sounds To install: In your Armada 2 directory... 1.
