These are old photos that are from another thread that i was doing during the creation of another ship, but I took some new pics and am starting this thread as a wip thread.

The art of inspiration.

It has been made to fit the weapon sides from my other ship the Typhoon strike cruiser.

Image

C&C welcome and encouraged i hope to have many more pics of the wip in the future.

that's really nice!, can you stick a third section in to make it more battleship sized?

the drawing is great I love the heresy era with an extra gun section that would look like a super-grand cruiser it would fit into both chaos and imperial fleets

maybe have a front lance option? would not look as nice though

great work

Thank you sir!

That is going to be one section once cast, with a nose added to one end and the engine and bridge added to the other, i don't see why i couldn't convert a middle section to have different stuff yet extend it to be battleship sized. Thats a great idea actually thank you!

My drawing skills suck, that little nub sticking out the middle of the nose at the very tip is actually supposed to be a lance. We will see what happens as i reach the front part of the ship.

Thanks for your C&C,

a "stub" lance might work and also maybe a wider barrel option to make it bombardment cannonesque to act as a marine barge?

Man, you're actually doing this aren't you? Wow! I do think it would need some sort of cathedral/tower/etc bridge, but this is going to be sheer awesomeness!

By the way, what are the dimensions of those turrets?

That's some good looking stuff. But is the title referring to a barge or a barrage?

Cheers

I can think of somehow incorporating some, do they need to point forward?

Update!

Been working on the nose of this beast, had to scrap two of them to get to this point, this type of shape has never been easy for me but i am starting to get the hang of how to do it... it's mostly persistance though. I added some pics of part of the ship together and next to a standard GW cruiser for scale. This thing is around 6.5cm right now i expect it to be atleast 9.5cm same as imperial cruiser, or perhaps 10.5 at most. It's a thick ship, reminds me of the grand cruiser alot. C&C welcome! And idea's on anything i can add to make it better!

Aye. Seems a great fit as a venerable battlebarge based on a grand cruiser
