It's finally here, and it looks every bit as spectacular as you could hope.

The Imperial Retribution Class Battleship is a massive ship. Most Imperial citizens would never see one in their lives, and those that do, are struck in awe at its beauty and size, and not to mention the payload it carries. Most, if not all, Retributions are millennia old, if not more. The battleships of the Gothic sector fleet are thought to be from the earliest days of the Imperium.

Armed with torpedoes, broadsides of 12 cannons, lances, and smaller weaponry dotted about the extremely thick hull and encased in it's strong Void Shields, the Retribution battleship is not a foe to be taken lightly, and in Trek terms, it should take a fleet or two to take down at least.

A full mod here -- with a full set of details. Make the Immortal Emperor proud and download this one right now.


Retribution Class Battlecruiser
Battlefleet Gothic
by Ragnar

This model was made by me completely from scratch, using only references from the BFG Rulebook and pictures from the Internet. I apologise for no build button, A-Log image or wireframe.

WARNING: If your computer cannot handle 2048x2048 textures, I wouldn't recommend a download. Though it runs fine for me, and most people have a decent Graphics card these days...

The Retribution Class Battlecruiser is a truly massive ship, and only two are in service to Battlefleet Gothic. A fearsome opponent, this goliath of a ship is capable of reducing enemy ships to molten slag in a matter of seconds from a full broadside.

As such, this ship isn't exactly balanced to A2 starships and more so to my own mod, so don't expect one ship to last long against this beast. Also you might want to scale it yourself, if you find its too big. Though using reference material, this should be roughly 4.5 times larger than a Sovereign class starship (It IS about 5km long)

A fine looking ship. Ragnar, you've done the Emperor and the Navy a high service. No if you just make up some Chaos ships for me to shoot with this one on a map representing the Eye of Terror, I'd be very happy. As it is, I'll content myself blasting Star Trek Xenos into unconnected radioactive atoms in the Gamma Quadrant.

The Emperor Protects!

it'd be great if some more gothic ships came out, especially from other races (eldar, chaos, orks, tau, etc.) in fact, i'd love to use this baby against a tyranid hive ship, blow those bloody bugs to kingdom come, since i can't seem to do it on the tabletop :mad: stupid nids.
