Here's some pics of a new range replacing those no longer made by GW. Similar modular construction, though in resin.

Definitely getting a few of those for a mechanicus fleet when they get the escorts done. The painted one is really nice. Looks like vaaish 's work.

Wow, much better than expected. These are excellent. More evidence that GWs ridiculous policies are having unexpected positive side effects.

Yeah shame I panicked and bought a GW Imperial fleet just before they canned the range, as this new range is nicer to my eyes. Might sell the GW one.. though ebay prices for Specialist Games stuff is falling now that there are all these manufacturers making replacement ranges...

I love this new "tyranid" BFG range from Winter Bioforge too:

I've got a full fleet of wintersforge nids, they are such nice sculpts and near perfect casts. Just need to get them painted. I just sold my craftworld eldar to a guy in California. Got them when I heard bfg was being canned but unfortunately I didn't get enough cruisers. Wasnt that happy with the style anyway. I plan to sculpt new ones based on jes goodwins original drawings.

I reckon these new cruisers vs winters forge tyranids would look amazing. Hopefully they get the frigates done soon. They need to do better space marine ships too.

I am happy with my Imperial fleet (once the BC and escorts are painted - hint hint) but i would buy space marine fleet if it looked decent.

My four nova cannon cruisers arrived. With all upgrades that makes 1000 points of mechanicus goodness.

They have a frigate coming with alternate prow to use as swords/firestorms. I also read they are planning other races and a battleship for the helians. I know where my money is going.
