Wow, 4 Battleships AND 2 grand cruisers? You're just compensating for something! Mighty jealous that you have the Solar style shaped prow! That 3 lance armed Lunar class ship looks awesome!!

Nice colour scheme though. I keep thinking about having a few ships in different colours for my BIG fleet but I'm unsure. I was thinking something similar to yours truth be told. White/Bone with Red prows. That should stand out from the crowd at least Might do an Armageddon Battle cruiser in those colours just for the sake of it.

The Resin Recasts I wanted to make the fleet look like it's cobbled together out of old ships from across different sectors. Not sure about the fleets background yet but basically I wanted it to be a Patrol fleet for where different sectors meet/overlap. Due to this overlap each sector thinks it's the others responsibility to look after so, as an uneasy compromise they each send a ship/squadron to make up the battlegroup. These ships are generally old ships they wont miss and/or Captains they can't or don't want to deal with. So I may add a Chaos recast to the Imperial fleet.

Well, the =][= 'bag' is getting heavier with each passing month. Ebay seems to be drying up at the moment. There's and Inq SCARN on there but it's £70 and from the states so will incur a hefty customs fee on top of the ridiculous postage!! I'm up for an =][= game as well! Might have to get my Chaos Party done firs though

You read my mind on the patrol fleet!
http://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/542821.page
Just a different approach to the navy's opinion of it, the first ship assigned was a battle cruiser, the other sectors didn't want to be out done
It's 5 battleships and 3 grand cruisers now, if combined with brother in laws half then we hit 9 battle ships
More than happy to meet up, pm me
If we do I might be able to help you out with some of your missing inquisitor stuff, the chaos henchmen, gene stealer hybrids, cherubael, eversor, possibly some sister repentia parts and the thorian without his head, who knows what else is in the box?

I painted the white/gold on the prow last night so figured I'd show some WIP pics. Excuse the dodgy angle, it's not stuck to the base yet

If I didn't know that was a conversion I think It would be hard to tell that that isn't an actual production model, especially with the traditional green colour scheme. The only thing I would say, is that the bridge area seems like it's missing a gold statue or something. Yep, very slick, great stuff!!

Sorry about the late update. I've had no chance to do any hobby recently due to my Kitchen being redone annnnnnnnnd then my laptop died so I haven't been able to get on here anyway.

Enough excuses though. Thanks for the nice comment Gogsnik. Yeah, it is missing something like that but I don't actually have anywhere to put it :S

I've also been able to knock up some fairly simple transports over the last few days.







I also have 10 Escorts and 3 cruisers in the 'practically done' stage so expect some more updates soon-ish. Plus some Inquisitor 54mm goodies as well.

Glad you like 'em! I'm probably going to end up making some more at some point and I'm already planing a huge fuel tanker type ship

Right. My 1500pt Gaming fleet is done!! Everything apart from the three cruisers are resin recasts. The three cruisers were salvage jobs as they have had 3 or 4 paint jobs over the years so even with stripping they didn't come out great. Regardless, I think they look ok!






Right, I best get around to finishing that Dreadnought I suppose.

Well, as promised, some more 54mm shenanigans on the go as well. This time a Chaos Warband. The background is still pending/rough on these chaps. There's not much conversion work. The magus is just a weapon swap and the mutant is just Fabian with some shoulder pads.





I'm planning on doing a Huge mutant pit fighter cyborg as the Magisters Body Guard. The mutant above is going to be the leader of a mutant rebellion.

Ooh, very nice and that Fabian head looks particularly daemonic, just goes to show how not painting it bright green makes a difference!!!

The BFG ships look spot on as well, I would never have guessed any were resin. I do hope that if Gee Dubs are bringing back specialist games that we'll see BFG again, I only got to play a few times but I found it an enjoyable game.

Some how missed the transports, nice work
I like the mini fleets that combine into a larger whole. Any thoughts on a fourth group?
Having played against them I can say they look great on the table top and are pretty useful on the table top too, just not useful enough in the end though eh? ( bragging? Who me? )
The 54mm stuff is looking good, am guessing I will pay for the previous comment when magnire faces off against them at some point, probably a first turn critical hit to the groin?

Cheers guys.
Yes............. GW, if you're listening. You need to bring back Gothic. I don't care what it costs. Just do it.



Well, I had a thought and then that thought turned into a full blown "I NEED TO SCRATCH BUILD NOW!" I fancied having some Endeavour class cruisers in my list. However due to A] not having any and B] wanting my fleet to look like it's made up of left overs and mothballed ships I decided to make this wee chap!

The plan is to cast him up and have 4 of them. 2 Endeavours and 2 Endurances. Although I really like the launch bays on it so that may change!




Close up of the torpedo tubes.



As you can see it's a bit shorter than a duantless but is twice as wide.




The background to this chap is that its an old Ore transporter that was converted into warship due to requirements and having loads left lying around after the mining industry went bust. Over the years it, and it's sister ships, have been modified and improved on and now form the majority of the system defence fleet of my forgotten backwater sector fleet.

Nice, and even as I was looking at it I thought there was something distinctly 'civilian' about that wide prow and a little bit pre-Heresy, it's like the Leman Russ of cargo ships. You should make some ork ships too.

I love the super battleship! It's looks massive. The Endeavor cruiser is really cool as well - you can tell it's halfway between the old and new cruiser designs.

Fiddly! great stuff, the stubby look makes it look like a close range brawler and fits the old mining ship look.

Cheers chaps! I hadn't even meant to make them look like a cross between the old and new ship designs.......... Er, I mean. Yeah. Totally meant that. Glad you noticed.

A tutorial? On the Transports? They're literally 2 Imperial Lanch bays stuck together. The prow is made from two marine shoulder pads and the engines are an old Heavy flamer. The bridge is made out of plasticard.

Well. I managed to cast 6 up last night. Only 4 came out usable though. The other two will probably end up as hulks. As you can see, there's still a few little bubbles that needed fixing. Nothing massive though.




Right, spray time!!




Automatically Appended Next Post:
Well. That didn't take long! The four Endeavours/Endurance are done! Although looking at them now I think they need some squadron markings on the prows. Do you think I should add purple & Gold to the back of the ships?



I've done some more work on the Magus. Not a huge amount, just the bone really and some silver work. Actually, that's it. Not really a real update on him now that I think about it. OH WELL.

Those transports have turned out great. I've seen people make some very elaborate 3D sculpts for printing but nothing really beats just sitting down and actually making something. Impressive.

The Magus seems to be shaping up very nicely too and I especially like the details on his impurity (???) seals.

Thanks Gogsnik & Reznor. I was considering it. Possibly cruiser sized but I'm unsure. It may just be the above Light cruiser style ships with and extended cargo area. I should be able to make it a 'double' of the fuel tanker. I'll see.

Right. No painting today (redoing patio!) but I did find the time to finish making this wee chappy! This is the chorno-Gladiator mutant suitably called Stuart.

Loving the chrono gladiator, he looks massive. My only concern, and it's a mild one at that, is that the bits sticking off the bottom of the shield are a little orky which reminds me that I am looking at a troll somehow. To retain the viciousness maybe he should have a sort of chain pata built in to the interior of the shield with the chain blade sticking out from the bottom? Allows for the frenzied look of two hand weapons and keeps the shield. Or just paint what you have already lol might be a lot more work for not enough gain
The refitted freighters look great painted up, not sure if more gold and purple is needed, might look a bit gaudy? Maybe save such extra bling for the inevitable battleship?
Regarding the miscasts, do we spy the beginnings of an ork fleet?

The pictures didn't come out great for some reason. The yellow on the Power cable looks pretty flat but hey-hum!

Thank you kindly for the comment. to be honest I feel like the painting is a bit rough in places but I'm glad you like him

Well, because I can't decide on which ship I want my flagship to be I went ahead and magnetised it. Everything. Even the prow so I can switch between torpedoes and Sensors. although this doesn't really help me decide on what I actually want it at least stops me from having to break things off every time I change my mind!

Here's the bits I have magnetised...



So, do I want an executor? (If only Imperials could have them! :()



An Avenger?



An Exorcist?

Those magnetised parts are screaming out for some cruisers to be added to the grey and purple part of your fleet, magnetise them as well and you have some easy variation in fleet set ups

I am planning on another grand cruiser. I may just do that!

Ok. Well, whilst sifting the interwebs looking for inspiration for an 'assassin' I fell upon this picture...



So! This lady is going to be my new Inquisitor. Her cover is an Imperial Bounty Hunter/Assassin for Hire. This is my take on the artwork... Kinda finished but Kinda not. I still need to finish the pouches. Other than though though! She's done. If you're curious, her head started off as a knackered Sevora head.
