I did that ratio for Startreker but these ships are 3 or 4 times bigger, it might not work well, unless we can change the battleview zoom

The biggest ship i know of is a Chaos Planetkiller about twice the Retribution, so i will see how the retribution looks then decide from there on.

Here ya go, after the table top game stopped bring in money they posted the rule book online, divided into chapters. The first link will take you right to where you can download the pdfs, the second is the same site just a page or two back, you can see the actual ship models here.

Love how even the smallest BFG ship is huge compared to other sci fi craft.

Thank you Upgrade, at the moment I am trying to find as much info as possible e.g. ship specs, weapons, classes, other types of ships

I do have most of it, just little bits like how wide are the ships is really hard to find, also

Burn the witch,
Purge the Heretic,

For a long time i lurked on the forum and wanted to create a 40k mod. Unfortunately i'm no good at programming, so i'm glad someone else who know what he is doing is making it. If it can help, i found a bunch of sprites for BFG for the OP.

Here's a modding thread for Distant Worlds with some of theme: (Maybe should ask the author if one can use them)

And some pics:

(Dunno what are thoses rings though)



Also sorry for my poor english.


Edit: Even better, a dl link with most ships sprites from BFG.

Perhaps they represent the effective weapon arcs. Or the foot base on which the ships would stand in the actual game:
