The Imperial Gothic Fleet
 
My conversions of some old Games Workshop Space Fleet miniatures to Full Thrust (Fleet Book)

 

 

 

Background
Before Battlefleet Gothic, Games Workshop released a game called Space Fleet back in 1991.  It came with 2 Imperial ships and 2 Eldar ships and you rolled the dice into the box top.  It was very simple but soon issues of White Dwarf added a bunch more ships to the game and metal miniatures were released.  Of those miniatures, these all had the same general shape and I thought they would look great on the table all together.

Design Philosophy
Hull strength is average.  Screens are prevalent except for the old IRONCLAD class of Heavy Cruiser.  Mainly beam batteries with offsetting arcs and a Pulse Torpedo foreword.
