Wh40K: Battle Barge by StugMeister Wh40K: Battle Barge by StugMeister
I've finally finished this pic! It's taken a lot longer than I hoped it would. I lost my way mid-way through creating this and started to concentrate on little details far too much.

About 5hrs overall in PS CS1.

Is that terran ship part of the space wolves legion by any chance?

It's a Space Wolves Chapter ship, so yes I suppose. :)

Incredible details. I must admit I'm unfamiliar with 'Battle Fleet Gothic', and can only guess at the enemy ship's identity. Is it Chaos?

Indeed it is Chaos.

Some of the Chaos cruisers are very curved - kinda like you'd expect an Eldar vessel to be.

Lost your way with a 'little' detail?!
From the sad lack of epic space battle pictures, methinks there is not enough detail!

Just kidding, it's pretty sweet. That Chaos cruiser is so screwed.

If you would do the insanely huge orbital battle above Fenris in Battle of the Fang, I would give you all my Internets.

I'm veering away from 40K for the mo, but if I ever need an inspirational idea, then the orbital battle is a pretty good one. :D

I'm not 100% certain, but I'm pretty sure that's a strike cruiser, a battle barge is tremendously larger in comparison

If you're referencing Battlefleet Gothic, It's the battle barge, and it is enormous as you sat. The strike cruiser is a different design, and smaller ship.

well that may be the case, but have you ever played DoW2?

ToastieSoldier Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
well, in DoW2 you operate from Strike Cruiser Armageddon which is the same model of ship as the one depicted, then at the end of the game a space battle goes down and the battle barge Litany of Fury comes along and the size comparison is like comparing a cat to an elephant

Just watched it. I really don't know where Relic got their reference from, or how GW could endorse it as being canon. :facepalm:

The ship in my pic is based on the miniature which was released the best part of a decade before DoW2 came along. Most, if not all, of GW's artwork also references the design of the Battlefleet Gothic miniature.

"shrugs" maybe it's a redesign, or maybe GW no longer likes the idea of that model being a battle barge, maybe it's just a cockup. I dunno, I'm just going with what I was given

They're shooting (and being shot by) a Chaos cruiser.

My favourite part of this picture is the drop pods shooting down onto the planet. Really gives the picture that sense of desperate battle that Space Marines are called in to remedy.
