I mean these things are made of ships lost in the warp, right? It would kinda suck if only the Imperium got lost in Maelstrom...

Still Orks, and pre imperial races would be cool...then again i always think orks would be cool.

Indeed it is a good argument, since it is very true; hulks that have been drifting in and out of the warp for thousands of years do have a nasty habit of bumping into - and merging with - random galactic detritus (space craft, asteroids etc).

Ultimately, I do have plans lurking somewhere at the back of my cranium to include structural details from other races (mainly chaos and orks), but for now I am concentrating on Imperial architecture for the narrative campaign event next year. There may be some chaotic surprises further down the line, with warped components such as thrashing cable tentacles and blast doors with teeth!

To give you a little more insight into the fluff behind the project, this hulk is mainly formed from a traitor fleet that was vanquished during the Horus Heresy, with an astartes battlebarge at its heart...

I luv da smell of fried dwarf in da mornin'
