I've known about 40k and fantasy warhammer for over a decade and i never gave much thought to battlefleet gothic. i was wondering if there was anyone on the site that had played battlefleet gothic and would recommend it?

A couple of years ago I bought myself large fleets of both Imperial and Chaos. I would love to have a Necron fleet, but as I have no BFG opponents anyway I never got around to it. Necrons are my favourite looking fleet.
I haven't played many games, due to lack of opponents as I mentioned. But I think it is a fantastic game system, it is extremely well balanced, the rules for all the armies are in two rulebooks rather than seperate army books, it is very cheap to buy a fleet (I got 2500 points of Imperial and 3000 points of Chaos plus rulebooks, game markers, reference sheets, dice everything you need for $400 US) and the game system is great fun. It is fairly simple to learn and play it, but requires more time and effort to master it. It is a very tactical game.
It is also very hard to be cheesy in BFG, everything is very well balanced. Lances can be a bit on the powerful side IMO, but thats it.
Overall I definitely recommend it, its great fun. If you are going to start, buy the main BFG box, even if you don't plan on playing either chaos or Imperial. You can use the 8 cruisers to learn the rules or sell them, and the box comes with literally everything you need to get started. The markers and special dice aren't essential if you improvise, but they definitely help a lot. And the reference sheets sum up the whole turn process very simply.
Also, the main rulebook is available for free on the specialist games website, so go and check it out to see if you like the game before spending any money!
