WH40k: Imperial Navy (NEW Dauntless Light Cruiser! Kind of DTU)

Recommended Posts



Love the Emperor

for He is the salvation of mankind

Obey His words

for He will lead you into the light of the future

Heed His wisdom

for He will protect you from evil

Whisper His prayers with devotion,

for they will save your soul

Honour His servants,

for they speak in His voice

Tremble before His majesty,

for we all walk in His immortal shadow




This ships are real beasts, however You will have bad time spawning in your campaign one of them unless you are a billionaire.

And you have to have lots and lots of Trinium, Xanion, Ogonite and Avorion.

ps. I'm using Retribution-class in my campaign, so it's not impossible :)


Emperor-class Battleship


Emperor, just like any other Imperial Flagship, carries Plasma Cannons that can turn into dust the whole squadrons of Light Cruisers and Escort Ships. Its ordnance launch bays contain dozens of fighters and bombers.











Retribution-class Battleship


With a massive amount of armor and heavy weaponry, Retribution can answer any type of threat. It is so powerful that it can alone withstand a fleet of attackers without any additional support.














Mars-class Battlecruiser


Mars has an impressive set of weaponry on its board, especially Nova Cannon that can deal devastating damage to any other warship. It is mostly used for long-range attacks.











Overlord-class Battlecruiser


A companion-ship to Mars, but designed specifically for close-range combat. Overlord has almost no disadvantages with both well balanced armor and weaponry.














Tyrant-class Cruiser


Tyrants carry experimental Plasma-based cannons that were designed to hit more distant targets than what usual Macro-Batteries couldn’t reach. These Cruisers also show good results in close-range knife combats.











Lunar-class Cruiser


Lunar class of cruisers is one of the most numerous, cheap and versatile warships in the entire navy.

Its armament consists of both lance batteries and macro cannons.











Gothic-class Cruiser


This is another cruiser in the Imperial fleet that is designed for the purposes of inflicting loads of damage to enemy warships by piercing through their armor with a number of Torpedoes and Lance Batteries.











Dauntless-class Light Cruiser


Dauntless can be used either as an Escort Ship or a Scout Cruiser.  It is mostly used against large targets and usually in a long range combat.

Wow, those church windows look great. The statue on the top and the imperial eagle as well. Your scale fits mine so that is also nice. I can see myself cruising the center of the galaxy in something like that! Also because of that I have a little bit of criticism. The bottom half looks very bare and could use some love. And the front shield is way more sloped than what I seen before, but that is really a minor point. I myself don't dare to build a battleship of this size and complexity yet because of the time it would take and because I'm not that close to the galaxy center to be able to build it. Good job!

I've set both scales to 0.05 and symetry in the middle. And I used the thinest blocks possible. Then I scaled down the whole thing so it fits on the armor. That's it. I just tried my best to re-create it. The fact that I have an Aquila pedant to look at just helps.  :D

I also plan to add more DAKKA imperial ships and some star wars ships in the future. Acclamator-class assault ship is ready, and Venator class is in production.

Actually I'm thinking about EVERY imperial ship from Battlefleet Gothic: Armada. But it is a project for the future. Battle cruisers are my priority. Maybe I'll make some chaos ships in the break  ;D

It was always great fun, I am an avid 40k tabletop player. Been playing for about twenty years now and not once have I regretted it. Buy things on sale, don't buy everything at once and treat it like a good hobby. Saves money and time that way.

But BF:G tabletop has a special place because it was way before its time, the models were gorgeous and cheap, gameplay was solid and things weren't too OP or nonsensical. Armada ruins what the tabletop was and that's why I refuse to play it.

There are some wired things about Armada so I see your point; although I have (mostly) good time playing it. AND the ship designs are great.

Jeeeeeeeeeeeeez..... These kinds of things just seem to blow my own ships out of the void that is space. Almost makes me want to pack up my ship-building tools and take up a different profession, seeing as how I could never be as masterful as your own skills project. Keep up the godly work. You obviously have a gift
