I've always hated white lol. Always. I never seem to be able to just 'dry brush it up' as you call it. I always have to paint it properly and highlight and blend it up. So it takes forever.

WARNING: Pic heavy!

Figured I'd do a step by step guide on the next prow.

Making the basic shape




Orks made it.





PING!!! Filed it.




Observation tower done.



Side details done




Recognise it yet? I was going for something along the lines of this.......


However now I am where I am, I'm not sure I want the spike on it. I kinda like it as it is. What say you? Also, Torpedo tubes somewhere? Underneath? HELP!

Please God do not add the banding and spike! It's lovely without and I think no torpedoes either. Perhaps an underslung las lance?

Ah........ well, hopefully you wont hate this then. The consensus on on BFG Facebook group was to add the spike. I'm 50/50 at the moment. I like it without but the spike is growing on me the more I look at it. I justified adding it with the reasoning that resin is easy to clip off and file down so if people don't like the spike, they can remove it.

I went with under slung Torpedo tubes. Feels like a cop out...... I don't know why.

Ok I was wrong... ;D

Not just saying that. It's really nice and a great homage too! I actually like the torps like that too

I actually like the spike you made far more than I thought I would!

Thank the Emperor for that :P

Someone has also suggested that I make a prow that is just a big battering ram. I was thinking a clenched fist. Like the one here (Battering Ram Fist)  http://www.solegends.com/citcat2006us/c2006usp0622-00.htm Thoughts?

Definitely do it! I did the same conversion on a light cruiser chassis back in the day using a powerfist as a base point of the conversion. The ship was called st anger... Lol I think that ship ended up with someone else though as I'm buggered if I know where it is now...

St Anger. I think that ship needs to be revived. ;)

Just figured I'd try and see what it all looked like put together. I must say, I rather like how it turned out :D




Also finished my Terra class Battleship

Yum yum and more yum. That prow has grown on me hugely. Love it!

And nice shots of the terra class. Space + ships = drool!

And at anger may just ride again...

She shall!! It's decided ;)

Finished my Nemesis. The pictures didn't turn out very well and the white looks flat as hell but, meh, I can't be bothered to re take them.








Also tried out a new colour scheme for the Retro fleet. White (damn you OSJC) with red prows. Basically the old Space Fleet colours! Prows have been converted slightly to resemble the Battleship Prow.

Thanks guys. What wrong with it? 7 layers, that's what's wrong with it :P Although, to be fair, I think the green on my Gothic fleet is probably just as much with all the washes etc..

I'll paint a Battleship (eventually) and an old Emperor class ship from space fleet (to use as an Endeavour/Endurance) in those colours. I'll hopefully get the light cruiser done but I'll have to wait until I get the samples back to get the Battleship underway :( Not sure what else I want in the fleet though!

EDIT: I forgot to say, I sliced about 1mm off the backs of those launch bays so they didn't stick out so far. I really like the slimmed down look. I'll be doing that for future ships!
