[BFG] Transports, now in 3D

You might recognise the shape from my other thread. That's right, I'm branching out into 3D and I figured I may as well start with what I've already designed - Imperial Transports.

The idea is to design in all the details I wanted to add but had neither materials nor tools to create, and then get it printed to cast. The fun part will be seeing how many faults I get back when I send it off, because I'm guaranteed to be doing something wrong! Much detailing still to do, but this has literally been the work of hours. Two, I think.

Minor snag hit, I'm trying to work smaller than sketchup will let me. Time to shoot off an email to the printer to see if they can scale at their end, so that I can scale up and keep working. In the meantime I can paint the real thing or work on a different section of the 3d... I think I'll paint.

So far so good!

Many many years ago there was this project called the 'Anargo Sector Project', before FFG's 40k universe RPG material, we tried to create an entire Imperial sector in full detail. This also included artwork, one fellow named CELS made all these transport ship models in Sketchup, including the components, and offered them to us so we could build our own versions. Doubt it was meant to be then copied/sold/etc but it was cool nonetheless. I might have the files on an old harddisk somewhere...

's an example of what could have been done with these components. The guy also uploaded a whole bunch of his artwork to his .

For example:

Maybe a good inspiration to look at when making these ships. :)

By the way, I found the components!




CELS was also the guy who wrote that article on Transport Ships for Warp Rift, look at .

Heh, heh, huh. Oh dear! Makes my work a liiiiittle bit redundant!

Damn that's some nice work. I def want to do a weapons module similar to his victoria cargo module. Blindhorizon has informed me that my transports are cutting it too close to IP, which means I may need to abandon this particular model, so weapons modules will be my first port of call if that should occur.

Wow, that guy is amazing!

I'm curious what software and printer he's using! :)

I can't remember what software he's using but they're printed by Shapeways.

I want those prows and midship modules.

My work on the transports has stalled for a moment due to accusations that I'm ripping off GW and that I'd soon find myself on the receiving end of a C&D notice and a hefty lawsuit. Any thoughts on just how close to GW material I'm cutting it?

Dede, the picture you've posted so far are still pretty generic, unless GW plans to C&D everyone who makes any kind of spaceship, which I really doubt...

It depends what you're planning to do with them. If they're only for personal use you can rip off as much as you want. But as Malika said most of the material in those modular designs is custom anyway

I can't believe this fear of GW is still so abundant :x
