The finish looks cool, though they are a little "homogenous" colour wise. That is the paradox of BFG ships though, detail, detail everywhere, and none that you can paint.
I did mine in a black and blue dazzle camoflage, which worked quite well, but was a bit of a pest to do. Could you perhaps pick out the bridge windows? Might even be an opportunity for some source lighting there, don't recall seeing that used before on BFG ships.
I know what you mean, but I chose to do them like this because it's how I imagine the Imperiums ships to be, dark and worn with only a little colour. I did have an idea of doing source lighting but the gaps in the bridge are just too small to paint in, I may give it a go though
I still got a whole fleet of necron vessels, my more older paint skills have been unleashed on metal with the result that I love your 2 cruisers. It's unfortunate I've only been able to use them 2 or 3 times in actual battle.

Nice I really like that spacey background and excellent finish you have their.
I got a 1500pt fleet of battlefleet gothic but I can't paint to save my life.
I'm sure most of the men in the galaxy are familiar with the sinking feeling that accompanies the words "Do you think you could do me a little favour, darling?", but when the woman asking the question is an inquisitor it's even less wise than usual to say "No".
Yay for BFG models! I personally have a modest fleet, but sadly don't get to play BFG anymore due to lack of opponents
I would strongly advise that you try having a game sometime - it's really quite easy to follow, is a nice departure from 40k, and is really fun!
I'm quite tempted too Gabriel, maybe in time
Posted by twitch on Today at 1:35am Amazing detail, are they two of the same that you built differently or did you order two different types (the tower antena things and the midsection guns)?
I need to cheak how much money I have.
They are the pair of Imperial Cruisers on the GW website, you can make them into about 7 different types of cruisers but I modelled these the same as the two shown on the website , they're only £13.50 so they're quite cheap for what you get
Thanks everyone for the kind feedback, I've just bought an Emperor Battlship which should arrive next week so expect an update soon
Firstly, thank you all for the replies and glad you like the cruisers
Secondly, the Battleship is here!!!
However, despite my apparent happiness I will say this.......it was the biggest pain in the arse ever!!!
As you can see its mostly metal, comes in about 12 main parts, and hardly any of them fit. After much filing and cutting I managed to assemble this....metal monstrosity, to an ok standard (trust me the pictures make it seem a lot more crooked than it actually is)
Hope you like , its currently drying from the undercoat but hopefully there will be painted pictures up by tomorrow.
