Some very nice work here so far, keep them coming :D
I may have to even use your earlier Iconoclast as inspiration as I need some haha.

Thanks marell, the prow of the Sword is actually a 3d model I did myself! (only that one part though)

Also thanks Captain-Matthias, if you want I can give you the templates for the Iconoclasts, the models are very quick to assemble (detailing them takes longer than making the base model).

You have templates? wow, Id very much appreciate that, it would certainly come in handy as Id like to do about 6 in total.
Any other tips would be great too haha :D

Ok I reopened my templates file after 2 years of not looking at it and I found it to be... rather basic. I'm not sure you can use this very well, but here goes:
(The 3 leftmost parts are more like construction diagrams, the actual template parts are the bits on the right)

Good luck, I guess?  ;D

I managed to make a little upgrade-kit for the fins of my scratchbuilt Chaos cruisers.
I am very pleased with it, the whole ship is now on the same level details-wise I feel.

Also I have been busy with priniting a fully magnetised Imperial Navy fleet, I now have 2 Dauntless, 5 cruisers, 1 battlecruiser and the Sword I showed earlier. I printed the prows in a different colour, to make the ships look better in the looong while it will take me to get round to painting them ;D

6 more Swords and a Battleship are in the works!
