BFG - ideas from internet

Postby TomG » Wed Apr 30, 2014 5:46 pm

I was not sure, where put it, but I wanted have here this topic/discusion as list of interesting models/conversion for BFG from internet.

I found this yesterday - Space Dock inspired by BFG Rulebook.

Another thing I like - Virtus Imperator, something like Gloriana Pattern Battleship.

Thanks for sharing guys! Certainly some very inspirational stuff in there, but my brain exploded at the sight of this:

At first I just thought it was a resin recast of a battleship with some conversions and a custom (and beautiful) prow attached. Then I looked closely - the entire hull is scratchbuilt from styrene :!:
Seriously stunning work. Flawless styrene sculpting. It makes me feel like my own work pales in comparison, if not just for the sheer scale of it!
Oh yeah I can make that....

I love that dreadnought, I really always wanted to make one. That space port is fantastic as well.

I think your work is a little more consistent and accurate. Some of his details are a little 'wobbly', not quite parallel to one another. His ambition and flair is amazing though!

Man that Eldar ship looks amazing, love the more organic look. A beautiful tribute to the original Space Fleet era stuff. Lets face it, the Eldar ship aesthetic from that era is a lot more interesting than the current Eldar ships.

You may be right, however IMO the ambition, flair and just downright excellent greebly design choices trump an inconsistency!

What a stunning collection of creativity, seriously.. It's like someone went through my favourites folder actually. That battleship Zac mentioned truly is the most incredible piece of scratchbuilding I've ever seen. I keep an eye on the original thread in case he comes back and mentions any more progress, or a price.. If there wasn't enough inspiration in this community and forum before, this has helped to add to the picture :)
