Liking the tyrant a lot, way to go on saving a battered ship, I would have tried to fix it as a reserved murder/carnage but your way is much cooler and keeps that tasty massed 6+ prow armoured wall

Glad you found us OSJC! Also glad you like the Tyrant. It's 'finished' as far as building is concerned but I'm not sure I like the antennae on the sides of the weapon batteries. I'll take some pictures and see what you think?

Radu, Hadn't thought about just using it as a reserved reserve cruiser. I could done I suppose but it's done now! Although now it has dorsal lances I keep thinking of making it an Overlord. Hmm.......

Made a new prow for the Transporter. No idea why I didn't make a prow like this before but, meh, its done now and off to the casters with the Battleship bits. Also if anyone was wondering there's a scale shot of it next to a Dauntless.





I've also 'finished' the Tyrant. Still not sure about the antennae on the weapon batteries. Kinda looks Chaosy..... Should I remove them?

Yeah I'd take them off, they kind of change the lines of the ship to a Chaos arrowhead rather than an imperial pencil, if that makes sense.

Blinding work on the transporter! Would be even more awesome still if the rear transport container section was separate too to facilitate alternative weapon/bays sections. ;D

And the chaos ship. Yeah. Git rid of those vanes asap! You should find it will indeed look much more sleek and imperial, as kid_kyoto says...

I don't know if anything can be done but I was looking at your ebay listings and shipping is like $20 to the US.

I've ordered from the UK before both ebay and shops and it's usually a lot less.

Thanks guys. I'll take the antennae off the weapon batteries.

Kid_Kyoto. That's Ebay's GSP. It's expensive. But we can come to other terms. Just message me

OSJC:
Originally I had planned for all the weapon pods to be separate. but I glued those on to see what it would look like and then, for the life of me, couldn't get them back off. I feared damaging the model so ended up leaving them on :/

Right, another rescue attempt. I had two cruiser hulls in seriously bad repair. One was missing the entire front section and both had bits cut out of the hull. Rather than chuck them I decided to cobble together a Furious class grand cruiser.





Thoughts? Colour scheme ideas? Thinking bronze with a red prow.

Which ever fleet this is going in I think it is deserving of the centrepiece look of the fleets scheme reversed, it will make it stand out and draw the eye to the conversion. Up to you what fleet it goes in but I demand! that it gets a reversed scheme, or not, it won't surprise me if you randomly convert something that surpasses this one

Thanks

I've actually gone for a dark metal. Looks a bit boring I think so might go and add some different colours here and there (no idea where). Although I still need to do those little heraldry shield things on the prow - which will be white and red.






Also managed to do a little Patrol section for my upcoming fleet.





Next up is this little ship. A combination of about 4 different sets. Think I'm gonna go with a white and gold scheme for this fellow as it's meant to be a Rogue Trader ship.

Well, Damn you Forge world. Damn you for making the Moirax armigers nasty as hell! I'm going to have to convert my Warglaives up as Moirax but for now, here's a test one!

Well, not much work done on the whole little ship front but I have started work on a Rogue Traders Star Galleon. Early days yet.



I had so many plans for my week off. I was gonna finish the Star Galleon but then life got in the way and so did another project...






He's magnetised at the arm/weapon joints and I have all the weapons for an Atropos, Castigator and Lancer for him. Yes, I had to buy 3 separate Knights from FW for that pleasure but to hells with it. No I just need to find something to do with two spare Cerastus bodies

Update time. Yeah, alright, he still isn't finished but I've just done a 91 hour week so give me a chance!

Todays work was the groin plate and the shin plates. The red looks a little flat in the picture, but it's not, you'll just have to take my word for it






Yesterdays work was getting the shoulder plates done. Still undecided about what to put on the black plates on the shoulders....... Ideas?




Also, I know there's something to take away the 'glossy' effect on transfers and make them blend in with the paintwork more but........ What is it?

Will that fist be getting a shield like the Lancer, or will you be doing something else?

I have one of the Taro Modelmaker shields (see previous post) That it will most likely end up with. I really like the look of the sword and shield or sword and fist. However I will probably always end up using it as an Atrapos because they're just horrible machines of death.

Hurrah! Shin plates are done! Quite happy with how this is turning out. I usually hate painting large models and they always end up being a chore to build and paint but this is anything but!







I still need to highlight the gold on the knee and thigh armour. Also planning on doing something on the knee pads, no idea what though. I'm also unsure if I need to add anything to the chest armour. Does it need anything? If so, what?

Is that a double headed eagle?
A golden one?
on a white and black gold model?

Well done. That is one fancy knight.

Those are some very nice hazards on this (very) tall boi's shin

Loads of impressive work all over, love the richness of the white, and that's some serious decal work (right??) As for the chest, I can see how you might want to do something on his left breast (gold something? another eagle??) but maybe it's fine black. Ultimately it's a black knight with white / gold / red accents, I think he can have just black panels on his chest.

Thanks mate. And yeah, the Decals are the Custodes ones from Forge World and they are as beautiful as they are expensive! I got my MicroSol in the post on Friday so spent all of yesterday tackling this...



It still needs some work around the joints in the armour but I'm pretty chuffed with how it's taken. I had to apply about 4 of 5 coats around some areas to get them to smooth out.

Whilst I'm on about the carapace armour. The main armour will be black but I'm unsure of the raised armour around his head. Should it be gold? I'm worried it will be to much gold......

I also started work on the knee plates. I have just done a freehand Legio Crucius symbol that took me hours to do. (I figured they can have close ties to the Titan Legion (future purchase? ;D) Pictures of that when I've completed the other details.
