Battlefleet Gothic: Relictor Space Marine Gladius Class Frigates


Moving along through the rest of my Space Marine Relictor's fleet are these four Gladius Class Frigates, that I found on Thingiverse.

These models are much large than the standard  Games Workship Gladius model and the designer said that he intended them to look like miniatures Strike Cruisers, and with that in mind I think he did a great job.

Now I will admit they are a little large for your average frigate, but in the world of Battlefleet Gothic that doesn't really mean much as ships (even within the same class) come in all shapes and sizes.


Now as a Escort vessel Gladius Frigates aren't really anything special. However in my proposed squadron of 4, they will have a combine Weapons Battery strength of 16 and that is nothing to shake a stick at!

That combined with their top speed of 30cm should make them a deadly and mobile unit.


Despite having battle the Space Marines in BFG before I have actually never fought against a group of Space Marine faction escorts. Sure I have fought Sword Class Frigates in Space Marine fleets, but never the actual Space Marine specific ships.

So I am interested to see how they preform and if they are worth the extra points.


And here is the my Space Marine Relictor fleet so far! Next on the docket I have 7 Hunter destroyers and 2 more Sword Class Frigates and then this fleet is done and we are ready to fight!
