What is Battlefleet Gothic?

Welcome to the Battlefleet Gothic chat section. This article will give you a brief overview of Battlefleet Gothic game.

Battlefleet Gothic is a game of spaceship combat set during the Gothic War in the 41st millennium - a grim time when the Imperium of Mankind battles for survival in a hostile galaxy. Battlefleet Gothic allows you to command entire fleets of warships in deadly conflict among the stars, though whether as Mankind's saviour or its destroyer remains to be seen.

There are a number of main types of warship available to a feet commander. Battleships are the largest fighting ships in space. They can absorb a tremendous amount of damage and mount weapons batteries capable of laying waste to entire continents. These vessels are so huge that they are comparatively slow and ponderous to manoeuvre, so they need support from other vessels to bring the enemy to battle. Cruisers are the workhorses of any fleet. They are manoeuvrable, well-armed ships, capable of operating away from a base for extended periods. In a major confrontation, cruisers screen the approach of the fleet in support of the escorts and form the gun line once battle begins. Escorts are the most commonly used warships. They are fast, lightly armed and usually accompany larger vessels, protecting them against torpedo attacks and fighting off enemy escorts.

If all this talk of navel battles in space, weapons batteries and torpedoes has got you excited then ask one of the players on here how to get started with Battlefleet Gothic.
