Battlefleet Gothic Armada - PC game Space Marine fleet
« on: December 14, 2016, 03:19:22 PM »
This is my own Astartes fleet list inspired by the fleet of Battlefleet Gothic Armada (the PC game), and converting it to be inline with the Battlefleet Gothic Armada (tabletop) fleet list.

I also took the liberty of giving their ships proper names, rather than "Mk I Battle Barge" or similar dull naming conventions, because why not?

Legate Class Battle Barge:
Legate Class Battle Barges make up the bulk of the Astartes battleships, and where genuine vessels are not available the Astartes will often seek to refit other vessels to similar standards. It is a time honoured design, combining impressive naval firepower and a formidable planetary assault capability. Armed with bombardment cannons, cavernous launch bays and facilities for three entire Companies of Space Marines, the Legate is a mobile fortress that can bring an entire world to its knees alone. Unfortunately for the enemies of Mankind, these vessels are invariably accompanied by numerous other Astartes vessels.
This ship uses the "Battle Barge" entry from BFG:A

Tribune Class Battle Barge:
The Tribune is a less common sight within the Astartes fleets, but is found more often in fleet based Chapters. A variant of the Legate, the Tribune sacrifices some of its planetary assault capability for increased naval firepower. Armed with an array of heavy lance batteries on the prow, and additional lance turrets along the dorsal spine, the Tribune can swiftly overwhelm enemy ships in a blinding flash of energy weapons, and any that survive will be broken apart by plasma broadsides and strafing runs from Thunderhawk Gunships.

Legionary Class Strike Cruiser:
The Legionary is the mainstay of the Astartes fleets across the Imperium. It is one of the most impressive ships of the Imperium; compact, fast, well armoured and equipped with a formidable array of planetary assault weapons. After reaching orbit, the Legionary will begin bombarding enemy positions with its bombardment cannons before unloading a company of Space Marines via drop pods and Thunderhawk Gunships. While not expressly designed for ship to ship combat, the Legionary is capable of filling this role, and is more than a match for ships of comparable tonnage.
This ship uses the "Strike Cruiser" entry in BFG:A.

Hastatus Strike Cruiser:
The Hastatus is an older model of Strike Cruiser designed primarily for use against orbital platforms or larger vessels. During the Great Crusade, the Hastatus was used to launch boarding torpedoes at enemy installations, usually after crippling them with bombardment cannons. The Hastatus fell out of favour shortly before the Heresy, but some examples still remain. Occasionally, a Legionary class may be retrofitted into a Hastatus by fleet chapters, and salvaged Navy vessels are at times reconfigured to fill a similar tactical role to the Hastatus.

Triarius Class Strike Cruiser:
Triarius is derived from a High Gothic term for "third line", and this is a reflection of the role it had in the fleets of the Legio Astartes. The ship would hold back while other vessels launched their assaults, moving forward to engage only when significant fleet resistance was encountered. Like other Strike Cruisers, the Triarius can carry a full company of Space Marines, but as it lacks the launch facilities of other classes it typically only has a small Astartes complement aboard.

Vanguard Light Cruiser:
Vanguards are a smaller variant of Astartes vessel based upon the Legionary Strike Cruiser. Smaller and less well armoured than other Astartes ships, the vessel nevertheless carries a significant amount of ordnance for its size. The ship is popular within fleet based Chapters, who send the Vanguards ahead to break up and harass the enemy with torpedo salvos. When the enemy retaliates, the Vanguard will typically fall back behind the heavier ships and continue to support the attack with its Thunderhawks.

Sentinel Light Cruiser:
As its name suggests, the Sentinel was designed for defence of Astartes homeworlds. Fast and agile, the Sentinel is able to quickly engage and overwhelm enemy raiders with ease. In conflict with larger craft, Sentinels will support the fleet by providing Thunderhawk support before moving in against damaged ships to finish them with its forward lance battery.

Crusader Light Cruiser:
Crusaders are modifications on the Sentinel class, replacing the lance batteries with bombardment cannons to allow the ship to assist in planetary bombardment. Crusaders are not as capable as the larger Strike Cruisers, but are frequent found in younger Chapters who lack the resources to build and maintain a full Strike Cruiser fleet.
