Kid, I'm loving these ship conversions, and your Ork Hulk is fantastic! Is this for BFG or I saw you mentioned Space Fleet further up the thread...please excuse my lateness to the party, I'm just coming back from a long hiatus. If it's for BFG, are the Ork ships cost prohibitive on the secondary market? Or did you just not like the aesthetics of the 'official' GW ships?

I'm really interested to see your 40k scale imperial lander...which will hold how many troops and support vehicles? You mentioned a 1000 to 2000 pt army. I'd love to see what you engineer for delivering Russes, Chimeras, and Sentinels along with all of their infantry.

My buddy Matt has a full Air Cav army, 3 or 4 valks with infantry squads, a Lightning, a couple of Vulcans with Punnishers, and a few heavy support squads for boots on the ground. I'm going to have to share your thread with him, since this lander may be right up his alley.

Keep those updates coming!

Thanks for the kind words!
@John - is there an Argos out there? I was just looking for a decent Greek name.

@Fango - For the Orks my issue was always that while the BFG designs are great, all the ships look the same since they're metal. The hulk was so much fun I may revisit the idea after the move and try making Ork ships completely from toys and plasticard.

@Kernal - Thinking about the lander it might be possible by stacking some plastic containers and then adding a ton of gribbles to the outside. Or maybe MDF laser cutting? Or 3d print an 8mm one for Titanicus? Well then I'd have to learn 3d sculpting wouldn't I...

Probably it's outside my current resources, time and storage space especially, but still cooking in the back of my head.

Well I've entered another odd year. I'm back in the US for 10 months or so before heading for my next job overseas.

As before 90% of my stuff went into storage until I arrive at my next job, just as well since Clan Kyoto is in a fairly small apartment for the duration.

This time I was a bit more generous to myself bringing one bitz box and some Space Fleet ships.

Still getting settled so not sure when I'll have more to show off, I decided to get some more Shroud Mages before they disappear and some of the cool Bandai Star Wars sets to make into BFG ships. Obviously they will require extensive conversion such as...

adding skulls?

We'll see.

Now for the 'Oh God don't tell my wife or it's over' project. Had some free time last night and those Bandai Star Destroyers were just sitting there...



Stock build but omitted the command tower, probably the most identifiable element.

Fantastic kit, almost no filing, and everything fit perfectly!



Ship one, tentatively the ISS Bandai, will count as an Avenger grand cruiser, though it might actually be battleship sized.



And with her sister ship the ISS Takara.

The Deathwing bits are a bit of an ill fit, much less detailed than the kit or the scale would require. But I think painting will help and the flat surface gives me room for the ship name etc.

The square city in the center is a separate part so it is easy to do more extensive conversions if you're looking to hide the origin of the kit. The hull and deck are also different pieces so you could make a more ambitious 'sandwich' as well.

Such great kits, joys to work with.

I got mine in Kyoto appropriately enough but they seem readily available in the US.

Next up, some more Shroud Mages Ork ships, time allowing.

The main problem is the hull and deck are only detailed on one side. But that's nothing a good bitz box can't fix.

Couldn't swear to it but I think the old Titanium series model was under 4".

Making some more stations/defence platforms? I really love that Hawk space station kit, so much fun and interesting multi purpose bits, thanks for convincing me to buy it!

And Starbase Tropicana is done.



2 tropicana juice tops, 4 Ravenwing bike banner things, and some space station bits.

Now to decide if it needs some docking tubes.

Using those Tropicana juice tops, the sides have a nice gothic arch feel to them that I never noticed. Good eye

I had a similar idea going with Tropicana and some iced teas brand's caps that fit together. I was going to put a CD between them to make a Blind Tower/astropath relay station. Now it will just look like I was stealing your idea...unlike all those other times when I really was stealing your ideas.

Where are these wall sections from?

Think it is something fundamental in our make up that we all love a good wall section.

The walls are from Trouble Maker games, available from Vanguard minis. They're scaled for 6mm but other than a ladder (which could be another detail really) they're pretty scale neutral.

https://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/terrain/tmg/

The two gripes I have are that they come with a gothic window/roof tile that is harder to fudge scale-wise, and while they hold together well at 90 degree angles, linking them straight makes for a poor join. Hence the zig zag patterns.

But a fun kit and a decent price. I've wanted to make some random walls for a while that can serve as space ships corridors or a dungeon maze.

As with 2015, I'm in the states for a year with all my stuff in storage

Alas my 'I'll only buy more after what I bought is painted' vow has already failed me

But I did get a good price

So... Adeptus Arbites dark blue, grey or black armor?

If everything's in storage you have to buy more, otherwise you have nothing

Dark blue with grey detailing sounds good to me.
