Hi, it's me Entarion. After almost two years of silence I have found some time to work on my SM army.
This army here actually http://www.heresy-online.net/forums...lions-entarions-diy-space-marine-chapter.html

But I am also finally starting my BFG fleet. It's shame BFG is gone but hopefully I saved few ships from utter oblivion.

EDIT - SM Fleet is now finished

What I have:
2x Battle Barge
2x Strike Cruiser
8x Hunter Class Destroyer
5x Nova Class Frigate
3x Gladius Class Frigate

What I plan to add:
1x Venerable Battle Barge (heavily converted)
2x Strike Cruiser
Several escorts (sword, firestorm, cobra)

Small Imperial Navy fleet
Light Cruisers, Cruisers, Battleships
===========================================

FULL BLACK LIONS FLEET



Battle Barges

Elostirion (Star-fort)



Elentirmo (Star-watcher)



Strike Cruisers

1st Company Raurómë (Lion's Wrath)



3rd Company Maranwë (Destiny)



Novas



Gladiuses



Hunters

UPDATE: Finished all frigates and destroyers!
They all turned out pretty well and I am very satisfied. I need to paint bases ofcourse. Some star fields, nebulaes etc. but I cannot find any step-by-step tutorial especially for nebulaes. If you know about anything please let me know! Now enjoy pics and sorry for somewhat worse quality.

Nice stuff! I have a much more modest collection that I started about two months before the specialist games went the way of the Dodo... A Grey Knight Strike Cruiser, two Imperial Cruisers, three frigates and a Grand Cruiser. Wish I'd thought to magnetise like you, great work!

Thanks Iraqiel! I was out of hobby for 2 years, so I totally missed closing of Specialist Games :( Fortunatelly I bought small SM fleet the very first year I started the hobby. Bless the Emperor!

Elentirmo (Star-watcher)
Named after one of the 1st Legion captains. Very old vessel operates at the very edge of the northern fringes of the Obscura Segmentum and protects local Imperial colonies from unknown threat.
It was fun to paint and I added some fine details such as windows to command deck. It's really my most favourite BFG model and I have still one to go before my fleet is finished. So enjoy pics. Any comments welcome as always.

Elostirion (Star-fort) my second Battle Barge acting as flagship for whole fleet. I used same base colours but added few more gold/bronze details to make it more special. And different lion icon.

I also decided to participate in this year's Gothicomp, So next week I'll upload pictures of whole fleet!





Together with its twin Elentirmo

Joyous stuff, but everytime I view this thread I'm racked with regret that I never got into the game, the minis are great

Thank you for your kind feedback. Sorry to say I intend to continue with this thread :)
As my SM fleet is almost complete (expect 3 more escorts and 2 strike cruisers) I want to start my Imperial Navy fleet. So hopefully I will bring more joy into your life rather than regret :biggrin:
