Just curious, any plans to make the planet killer a playable ship?

maybe yes because at the end orcs and chaos have 2 " legendary" ships the colossus(ork) and the planet killer(chaos) ... I think that in a while do them again :)

Would be interesting to have an ork Space Hulk available.

Sure...
But then what would you do for Eldar, or the IN for that matter?
You could bring a Gloriana Super Battleship for the IN, but that's dramatically bending the fluff...

If that ship ever becomes playable, we'd have all sorts of self-ramming setups to make the beam sweep across a large area of the map >.>

A craftworld for the eldar :D

I'm a fan of assymetrical warfare. I don't really see the need for all the gaps to be filled so that each faction has the tools to counter the other factions.

I'd love to see a Gloriana as a playable unit (though I think it would be a space marine ship)

Not necessarily.
Heard of Amphion? She was a Gloriana Class Super Battleship (the last of her class to be built) that lead the Imperial Armada as it routed Chaos forces, removing them from the Imperium and forcing them into the eye of Terror. That means she was briefly the flagship of the entire Imperial Navy at one point.

Sadly she was lost in the warp, leading a Vangaurd of Imperial battleships into the heart of the Eye of Terror to ensure no Chaos ship escaped the Aramda. Some in the Navy say the mighty spirit of the vessel still stalks the warp, watching over loyal warships as it blasts away demons from ships seeking safe passage.

She actually hasn't been sighted since, but it's likely she's fallen to Chaos... Which is exactly why I brought the whole 'legendary ship' thing being a problem for the IN.
