Battlefleet Gothic

Welcome to the best page about the best game that GW has ever made! Whether you’re a green recruit who has yet to find their space legs, or a salty Admiral and a veteran of a hundred battles, we’ve got you covered with everything you need to know about playing Battlefleet Gothic.


Battlefleet Gothic (BFG) is a game for those among us who really enjoy the setting of the Warhammer 40,000 universe but feel it’s missing a certain flare for space-faring gothic cathedrals, comically oversized weapons batteries exchanging broadsides, and metric blue-whippy measuring sticks. It’s also the best game GW ever produced, and we’ll fight you if you disagree. Below you can find a series of reviews on the background of BFG, the core gameplay, the fleets and expanded fleets, and opportunities for expanded play.

There is no better moment in gaming than when you’re commanding your forces at every level – whether the battle is unfolding in a decimated sector of a ruined city, or across lightyears of space hopping from planet to planet. When you’re relentlessly pursuing the enemy in games that mean more than simply moving onto the next round pairings, you’re truly bringing the magic of the Warhammer 40,000 universe to life. For this reason we’re featuring an ongoing campaign that brings Battlefleet Gothic and Warhammer 40,000 Crusade together in the wild, untamed, and mysterious Koronus Expanse.
