Not too fond of the Dragon and Khorne thing. That other daemon engine has some potential though. However, I still don't think my eagle head on the ship is as extreme as some of GW's more current designs.

Interesting. Yes, as you suspect, my point was that the Chaos designs are perfect examples of a model being a parody of itself. I think they look ridiculous!

I will admit that from angles other than directly side on the eagle head doesn't look quite as bad but in the end if you want to run with it then I'll just have to suck it up. I will reiterate however that I don't feel that it will appeal to BFG players.
Oh yeah I can make that....

I was about to yell "lets do a wager", but I really suck when it comes to betting.

However, I am tempted to make a prow variant, put them both up on Shapeways and see which one sells better. Sort of like how UX designers do an AB test! :mrgreen:

It would certainly be an interesting experiment!

I still think it would actually look really nice with wingy wings. See also:

Possibly looking similar to the the other set of light cruisers, which have a larger head on the prow and wings further aft.

@mangozac: I'm definitely up for such an experiment!

some of the red ships on the first page remind me of FSA Dindrenzi ships

Hmm, can we get a cannon variant? Those side/fwd slots would lend themselves nicely to a dorsal arc weapon battery of a small escort, or even to bombardment cannons...

There will be some other variants coming, such as one with weapon batteries, kinda like Endeavour.
