It's 132 Miles long, has more firepower than most planetary systems, carries it's own fleet with hundreds of warships with each one millions of years more advanced than our own vessel and they already know who would win in an engagement with us because they can see the future???

Well there is only one thing left to do...

Bring her about. load torpedo tubes, raise shields send a direct alpha alert code 1 to Terra relaying our position and bring all guns to bare!


History recorded that on one day in the Year of the Emperor M39.461 the imperial warship Holy Sword was reported lost when it's on board astropath simply stopped transmitting in an area of space generally associated with the Eldar pirates of the designation Saim-Hann.

Well, if they can see Craftworld in full, it means it's SO frigging far away, it will take them a veeeery long time trying to get close. And if they do, even if no one shoots them right away (and there are some serious fleets around the Craftworlds usually, and the Eldar have the best recon and no human difficulties in communication), and these silly mon'keigh do decide to ram, it will be like a small puff that will go unnoticed for the whole vessel, though some local damage will be substantial, no doubt.

Fun Fact: Do you know that some human have been welcome onto a craft world as honor guest. And that some human have learn to see into the future by the Eldar.

The Mechanicus has a 6,000 meter vessel for transporting titan legions.  There was an accident in it once when a Reaver missed it's target on the firing range and...well..it wasn't good for the bystanders.

What I could never understand is, if they can see into the future, why does so much bad shit happen to them. No more than any other race in 40k mind you, but wouldn't they be able to avert, for example, having their craftworlds 3/4 eaten by tryanids?

This probably happened. And it happened because the warship "Holy Sword" would otherwise have ended up saving an Imperial world from an Ork invasion. Aforementioned Orks would then not be able to launch a proto-WAAAGH! against the neighbouring systems, which would have forced Sector Command to request additional forces from Segementum Command, which would have diverted said forces from the path of a Tyranid splinter fleet, which would then lead to those Tyranids infesting an Imperial world, which would have ended with an Exterminatus in order to halt the Tyranid threat. All in all, perhaps twenty billion human lives will be lost, at a minimum.
Incidentally, it will also keep the humans away from an Exodian world, divert their fleet *away* from the path of the Craftworld, and get rid of that pesky Necron Tomb World they decided to colonise for Isha knows what inane reasons.

@batteling craftworlds: There are more than the few big one craftworlds, several small too. Also, the Imperial Navy has nuked several of those other craftworlds to oblivion. Probably would have happened if it was a full battle fleet instead of a single ship stumbeling across one.

Nice pic, by the way!

You were warned. I am not concerned with your interpretation of the fluff regarding Craftworlds. Your comment has nothing to do with the art and has been removed.
