Excellent work.

Black and green seem a little big too regular to me. I mean the surface is important, it would have added someting to insert an other colour at some point, maybe.

And on the other hand, the white prew is very nice and it's because of this long regularity on the rest of the colour.

Grud, the scratch building is mighty here, I like the subtle changes in prows very much. Might the prows ever be available like your high conveyor, I think they’d be interesting replacements for the Helios range. Er do you have some master plan on putting all your fleets on the table some day?

Where might a humble squig dung shoveler like me source those resin ships you posted previously? They have a Resin Addict vibe to them and I know Vaish was dabbling somewhere.

Marell le Fou: I was thinking that but I wasn't sure what to do. I had thought about doing the dorsal turrets in white, or maybe the whole dorsal section and bridge in white.

Ragsta: Thanks mate, Yeah, I'll get them off to the caster as soon as I've done a few more prows. I have 2 ideas, one easy, one not. So we'll see how long they take me to do. Which resin ships were you talking about? There's a lot in this thread ;) I could do a full fleet picture, but will probably hold off until it's painted. It's a lot to get out after all!!

Apoca.......Apocoly....... Thanks!

Well, I've started the 'Fist prow'. I don't like it but not sure how else I could have done it without the prow being to long or the fist being to small. Oh well, I'm not going to be using it :P

Hahaha I love this! I think those would be excellent for me to convert into some Ork ships too!

The resin ships I mean are at top of page 18, mate. But hey, if you want to send me a complete listing of all your sources I don’t think anyone would mind  ;D

ok, thats not at all where I thought you were going with the fist-prow dealie.  ;D
when I did mine it was kinda more like a ram added to the end of the prow, also a friend reminded me, it was not a power fist, but an old (and I mean old, the metal/plastic hybrid kit) chaos knight hand, as it had a flared gauntlet look that was rather nice on the end of the prow. so essentially a fancier ram simply painted as gold/bronze but, yeah full fist prow, why not? very astartes to my mind...
its truly no nonsense.

crazy but, no nonsense...

Ah someone over on the Dakka page wanted a whole prow as a 'ram' so figured I'd do this. Purely for him really. I'm not overly fond of it but...... hey, he wanted it. It's actually growing on me now it has more details on it.

Ok, so I have a couple of ideas for future prows. One is based off the old Dominator Battleship from Space fleet - As I don't have a nova Cannon in the set. I'm also thinking of the old dictator as well, which basically has a massive drill as a prow. Not sure on the drill, but definitely going to do the Nova cannon.

Thanks mate.

Work on Prow Number 4. Based off the old Space Fleet Dominator. Quite happy with it so far.

Same. Not fond of the fist one, despite the fact that it's a very original idea.

I like the second one better.

Strange, because in general i do respect more the originality than pure technic.
