I have one that I got from the missions, but in all honesty, I almost never play that ship, this camo looks so cool, but it should have been made for the Tirpitz!
That's a ship I play all the time.

Some players got a mission to earn it (not me).  And, it is currently for sale in the premium shop (or was within the last day or two, at least).

Looks cool as all heck... but maybe it wasn't all that popular because Bismarck already has two perfectly serviceable permacamos available, for free, from the same crate collection in the armory? I couldn't play the mission when it was available, and $20 is just too steep for a cosmetic item for a ship which I already have two other camos unlocked for.

Wish there'd been a bit more of that Gothic architecture stapled to the WH40k ships... or that they just would've used the KM ships with their huge superstructures and dakka-tastic secondaries. Maybe that'll be the second wave if WH does another 40k collab.

The mission come from a bonus code during WG's official stream. But I think I found that code here some post in the forum.

Same. I got it from the mission, and like the look (and love the unique horn), but I already have so many other free permacamos for Bismarck and rarely play it anyway now that I’ve ground past it and moved the captain up, and have other t8 BBs I’m grinding to play.

I have yet to see one on the NA server.

I've seen some, and believe me when I say they are just as butt-ugly live as they are in pics! Worst camo I've ever seen!

I love mine. but i only play in COOP so you probably wont ever see me using it. I alternate between it and the "From the depths destroyed" Camo, My Bismarck is shelved at the moment anyways while i finish out grinding other lines.

I've certainly seen it on NA in coop, not random yet. I have it from grinding through the event. Seems to be a love it or hate permacamo. Awesome horn...I use it simply because I want the camo benefits and it was free. Not sure I'd pay real cash for it though.

Got it from the mission with normal play  ... put it on just long enough to play the horn.  Interesting.  Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D Minor is better ... :Smile_bajan2: :Smile_teethhappy:

Back to Unsinkable Sam.

I got it, and now I have 17,291 permanent camos for the Biz. I'm debating on resetting the line to and I will play that camo, but only because the horn is awesome. Otherwise I prefer the cat camo :)

I don't know if it's some internal joke to release constantly camos for Bismarck, or it's that popular.

There's doubloon permacamo, Last conquest, From the bottom of the ocean, Halloween,  Snowy, Infernal, Unsinkable Sam and now Gothic. 

That's 8 different permacamos for the same ship, 6 if you count the ship specific ones only.

I have it as well, earned it from the Twitch missions. Played a couple battles in it when I got it, but haven't played the Bismarck much since. I normally play tier 10 since I earn way more there, and besides, even though the Gothic camo is kinda neat, the black Sam the Cat camo is much more cool.

I don't have a single perma camo for the Bismarck. Even so, I decided not to work for it after I saw the mission requirements and how much of a grind it was. I was also completing some other mission directives that would not be possible if I played purely german ships. To me, the camo was not worth the amount of work needed to acquire it.

As of today, I still have not seen the camo in the wild. I suspect not many people bothered to try for it.

Why use that one when you got a free Unsikable Sam camo?

Also: why not sell it in thr arsenal for coal or something like this, since WG already had a mission chain to give her away.

Hideously ugly! I got the mission and never got it finished. No regrets.

The Bismarck and the N Carolina are the only two ships that have 7 million + Battles. The next closest? Tirpitz at 5 Million and then Amagi at 3 Million.

I think the Bismarck freebie event is responsible for its widespread use, I really don't care for her and will play Tirpitz by preference.

I've got the Gothic but am still playing the Gneisenau.   Originally when I finished the mission for the camo, I thought I'd hurry and push to finish the research for the Bismarck, but the 5 Epochs and Oklahoma directives have shifted my attention away from progressing further.
