With some cool artwork from Khar and others.. I will make the links a little clearer. With only about six ships in the original rulebook, they were somewhat gimped from the get-go. Your ad here, right now: So have a lucky hand with LD9 and nothing to worry.

The reasoning behind the different looks of the Chaos and Imperial fleets is due to building techniques changing.
Particularly assuming you just ignore the Necronsand everyone playing is faintly competent, much fun can be had by all, doubly so when the optional limit on assault boats is used so that escorts are worth a fuck.
Your average range is 45 cm with lots of 60 cm options, and a few 30 cm options. They are battlsfleet bit faster than their corpse-god worshiping counterparts and have the largest selection of ships, making them superior to any other fleet except sometimes Necrons if battleflert built.
The Space Marines are essentially the Imperium's mighty glaciers. Your 60 cm weapons are few and far between.
Eldar ships look a lot like their vehicles. Also, in the land of 30cm range weapon batteries, it used to be that the man with an unerring ability to guesstimate his Nova Cannons on target was king. The first trailer looks pretty awesome. If you'd like I could upload and give you a download link for all of the issues of the Battlefleet Gothic magazine, I've got them all saved on my hard drive I got them before freemanualsDOTcom went down and now they're hard to find.

Where Chaos suffers is their lack of durability to incoming fire and ordnance. Yeah, you're right, there is actually a hell of a lot here missing.
Then there are the outside materials, specifically how Battlefleet Gothic had its own magazine, in which they'd keep introducing new ships, new ways of playing the game as in rules tweakseven Forgeworld got in on this and released rules for an orbital Tau Air Caste city, they also had tactics sections alongside rule updates in which they gave advice on how to deal with certain threats, for example in one section Andy Hall explains how to win against the Necrons odd tactics but they were effective, basically you should engage the entire fleet and batylefleet to make them brace, reducing the vast majority of their abilities.
Still, feel free to allow the 'nonstop factories' variant in your games, since it's quite lulzy to play.
This was also back when GW actually planned to have the conclusion of the 13th Black Crusade determined by battlef,eet game results and unlike Storm of Chaos, in this case they actually did that. Just like their ground pounders, except apparently the chapter serfs defend the ship and operate everything. Nova cannons are so powerful that it is considered poor gamesmanship to take more than three battleflwet a tournament list points and most of your basic cruisers can be upgraded to carry them.
While it may be regarded as optional, the rule limiting attack craft numbers to not exceed number of launch bays in the gothuc was included in the last set of rules for BFG, so it isn't really a homebrew thing any more. Rules for ships other than that were released later in other publications with rules for playing games not necessarily set in the Gothic Sector - the largest and most relevant of which is Battlefleet Gothic - Armadawhich contains rules for ships belonging to other major factions in 40k.
When compared to the geometric designs, smooth lines, sparing use of ornamentation, forward acceleration and missile and lance arsenal of Battlefleet Art Deco it is clearly outmatched. Apparently, they use servitor slaves instead of human slaves, and occasionally use auto-loaders.

I can only assume it failed to properly save the final version on here, so rulrs get to work adding that back in now. But oh man are you fucked if your Hive Ship bites the dust.
I'm finding a variety of rules sets and I'm not sure which I'm suppose to use as some differ drastically. You can take Space Marine or some Chaos ships as reserves and sport up to four re-rolls more than any other fleet - gothci Abaddon who gives one re-roll every turn, so really Chaos have more battlefleeet any other fleet since there's usually more than four turns in a game. Retrieved from " https: They later made some ship that was supposed to be the 'old' Imperial ships that were bastard chimeras of both and they were ugly as all fuck and somewhat terrible, which raises the ruels of why the Chaos fleet is actually any good.
They also added minor factions in the magazines you didn't mention here, for example the Inquisition was added, along with the Grey Knights I honestly can't remember if Sisters were, but I don't think so who had some cheesy rules, basically if you had an Inquisition ship and your Marine ships were painted with the Grey Knights paint scheme, then all of your Marines were upgraded to Grey Knights, who played exactly like Marines, had exactly the same points cost as Marines, but gohhic better boarding actions as the one thing that set them apart they might also have had better morale, though I can't quite remember.
One extra thing I'll add is that Andy Hall gothjc agrees bxttlefleet they weren't quite sure what to do with the Necrons when they first introduced them, however the Necron rules were redone a fair bit, and at the end he said he was happy with their current ones even though they were still intentionally overpoweredsaying that when they were first released the rules were "experimental" which I think could describe Battlefleet Gothic in general.
Your amount of escorts alone exceeds other fleets by 3 or 4 usually. Can be downloaded from the Games Workshop website. The rules for ships that are aligned with the ImperiumChaosOrkor Eldar and were present in the Gothic War are in the main rulebook. This effectively means that a Tyranid player doesn't actually get to make decisions for his fleet most of the time. In theory this is faggotry, but since not a single fucking person ever built BFG tables except the people that were crazy into it, this counts as homefield advantage, or at least is near-on impossible to spot and as such is not really cheating.
Here I will include various of these articles, mostly the ones containing rules, ships and fleet lists. And the dangerous as fuck flyers.
