[BFG] WIP Emperor Cruiser/Battle Barge.

Postby Blindhorizon » Thu Jun 12, 2014 4:15 pm

These are old photos that are from another thread that i was doing during the creation of another ship, but I took some new pics and am starting this thread as a wip thread.

It has been made to fit the weapon sides from my other ship the Typhoon strike cruiser.

C&C welcome and encouraged i hope to have many more pics of the wip in the future.

Update!

Been working on the nose of this beast, had to scrap two of them to get to this point, this type of shape has never been easy for me but i am starting to get the hang of how to do it... it's mostly persistance though. I added some pics of part of the ship together and next to a standard GW cruiser for scale. This thing is around 6.5cm right now i expect it to be atleast 9.5cm same as imperial cruiser, or perhaps 10.5 at most. It's a thick ship, reminds me of the grand cruiser alot. C&C welcome! And idea's on anything i can add to make it better!

Looks like it might need a bit of work to better mate the disparity between the gun bays and the prow?

Are you referring to the width of the prow compared the how far the gun bays stick out? The nose is still very wip just getting the shape down before i add detail. I may extend the nose a little by adding a 2-3mm long sections between the weapon gays and the nose to tapper it back to fit in with the gun sides. Or i might just leave it, intending it to look that way, havent decided as of yet.

on the top of the nose that 2mm section that it sits below the top deck is left their to add extra detail in, just havent gotten that far yet. I'll have some more wip pictures to post after work tonight.

Thanks for your input, i appreciate it.

I made more progress on this monster, the nose is turning out to be a pretty big piece. That was expected as the last ship i created was thinner in the middle and heavier on either end. I added ribbing along the edges of the nose top and bottom, did some straps on the lower one i had in the image. Added some pillar/window style on the middle, they are different and alternate hard to see because it's white. I added a generator on the bottom of the nose. Last couple things i have left before i can finish with this and move to the engines is, complete the top of the ship, make the cannon, and extend the rear of the ship back 3mm to make it sit flush with the center section.

As i know when i watch a wip i really do like lots of pics on progression, you can learn a lot from pics. So i decided to snap a bunch as i go and put them up so people can see this item grow.

Update! Finished the nose, flushed it to the body. Finished the cannon out the front of the nose, i will still be making a piece that has torp holes. Did a mock up with the antenna turrets, broadside cannons, and launch bays. C&C welcome and encouraged!

Just pondering, if you'll be casting them, have you considered making it (a) multipart and (b) include some variant bits in there, so that the prow for example could have carry torpedoes and such. :)

Yes sir. That cannon is removable and i will be making a torpedo piece that fits in that slot. Yes this will be multi part, i will be making another center section that can be added for more weapons for a battleship attachment. These will be cast up and made available.

We shall see about that Gun-wun.

Been working on the rear engine area. Starting some of the detail on the lower half, already aborted 1 upper and bridge, it just didn't look right. I think this beast is coming together nicely, i really started slowing down as i hit the rear part but i'm still pluggin away at this. I added the launch bay and energy turrets in this picture. The ship is right about 10.5cm long which is one cm longer then a standard imperial cruiser, so it should fit in nicely. C&C welcome and encouraged.

Nice work, great work on the prow in particular. It might be that you could get some more length into the ship to turn it into a true beast!

After some serious creators block on this project i've made some progress. The bridge section was an issue, if you look at the picture i had no idea what i was going to do.

Blue tac was holding it together, not very well might i add so sorry about the poor picture quality. Ive created the main outline of everything i am no adding in the detail, the bridge window and secondary bridge window is complete, i've also started some detail on the cooling fin on the rear.

C&C welcome.

thanks,
