Battlefleet Gothic Character Ship Creation Community Event
Admirals! We are happy to announce the first every Character Ship Creation Community Event! We want to see the creativity of this community going. This is a chance to put on display your full capabilities as a story telling, conversion expert, painter, artist, rules writer and just general Gothic enthusiast!
This event will run from TODAY (12 SEP 2022) until 12 DEC 2022!
What we want to see is you come up with your best ship possible. We want to know the story, see the ship (either as a actual model or original artwork), and see any additional rules you can come up with. You can work from existing ship classes or come up with your own original. You can also work from existing fleets in game, or come up with something not yet in game but grounded in Warhammer lore (IE a Hrud or Votann ship). Get creative, really dive into the potential that is BFG
If your submission contains a conversion, please provide a brief explanation of how you did the conversion in your submission. If it is a 3d print of an original design, please provide a link to the .stl in the submission. Once you've come up with your unique character ship(s) you will submit it (details below) for consideration in the following categories.
There are 5 Main Categories that will be recognized (with potential for prize support, details to come)
Best Human Ship
Best Xenos Ship
High Admiralty's Choice
Additionally the following will be recognized.
Best Original Class
Best Existing Class (from Official Rule sources)

Honorable Mentions/Bests in Fleets
After winners have been announced, the admin team will gather up and ePublish a PDF of all the winners for your at home use and reference! We will endeavor to make this a cool product for your use. You may also see your ship featured in community eZines (like Warp Rift) related to Battle Fleet Gothic!
Submissions via will be via Google Drive
Submissions must be in a .doc or .docx format. Any pictures in the document may also be uploaded as a separate file (so we can see and use the best resolution). You are limited to 2 pages per entry, profile layout, normal margins. Please use common fonts and font sizes. Additional a short 1-2 sentences about you/how you hobby would be nice, but completely optional.
Denote in your submission if your ship is for use with the original rules or any variant of BFG (BFG:XR, BFG:2020, Battlefleet Heresy). This will have no impact on winners.
An example of a character ship entries from the old Fanatic contest can be found here to get an idea of what kind of stuff we are looking for/format
(files are The Light Bringer, Black Avenger, Favoured Concubine, Orkham's Raza, Devine Sanction)
