Battlefleet Gothic is a tabletop miniatures game based in Games Workshop's fictional Warhammer 40,000 universe. Battlefleet Gothic is a starship combat game, and focuses around the incursion of the "Gothic Sector" by fleets under the command of Abaddon the Despoiler, and the subsequent campaign by the Imperium to restore order. Battlefleet Gothic is also the Imperial Naval formation after which the game is named and which is a major protagonist in much of the supporting fiction. Battlefleet Gothic is an extension to the Warhammer 40,000 universe, providing the ability for players to stage space battles between fleets of spacefaring ships. Players select spaceships from a variety of fleets representative of the various Warhammer 40,000 races. The game as packaged includes rules and background for space fleets.
You can command a valiant fleet of the Imperial starships in the name of the Emperor of Mankind or an insidious horde of Chaos heretics whose only purpose is to subjugate and destroy all they encounter to sate the dark desires of their foul gods. There are also other races involved in the conflict, like the enigmatic Eldar, the crude and brutal Orks, the ancient and frightening Necrons, and many more. Whatever force you choose to command, you are in control of a million tons of awesome, warp-drive-powered fury cutting through the void of interstellar space! Though your weapons are powerful and your crews are prepared, it is only your cunning and leadership that can drive them to victory. Do you have what it takes to travel to distant sectors to do battle in the cold wastes between the stars? Your force is represented by models from the Citadel Miniatures range that you paint and assemble yourself. There are plenty of ships included in the boxed game to get you started, and our hardworking Miniature Designers have created an entire range of incredible Battleships, Cruisers, Frigates, and Gunships to be deployed for battle.

AWW BITCH YOU SUNK MY BATTLESHIP!
