Yeah, that prow makes much more sense. It adds the tad needed sleekness. Nice Space Marine fleet that way. The Helian hull indeed works for the Barge.

My Marine fleets consists of three ForgeWorld Strike Cruisers which I run as the regular ones and a GW one which Is the bombard variant. Makes somewhat sense I guess.

You know what? It's all rubbish. Better give it to me so I can sort it out for you. You'll just have to start again from fresh ::)

Everything from conversion to paint job is amazing. If I didn't like you........ I'd hate you.

The Marine fleet looks great. What colours did you use?

Glorious stuff, dude! Your use of Vanguard bits is really good - once they get their bums sorted re. ship releases I will definitely be doing a mixed force of IN and Marines and stealing your good ideas.

The Helian cruiser hull clearly has lots of potential, and it's encouraging to see the Panthera prows being a good size for different conversion possibilities.

Could you possibly DM me the 'Russian guy's' details from evil bay? I recognise the weapon bays but can't find them myself. I have a hunch I know who they are, but still!

Space Sharks looking really darn good. Hope all is well with you real life wise too  :)

Still alive so can't complain. Job is still no go. But models are full steam ahead! (Well what I have already anyhow)

Have pm'd with the eBay page...

an experiment with fighter craft ordnance to make a proxy for a marauder bomber:

vanguard javelin cut down and trimmed with a swithdeath tail between the engines.
not an excellent pic but bloody small and hard to capture with the phone...

*edit*
better shot


*end*

been experimenting on kitbashing more fighter ordnance:
I have more imperial bombers than anything else so i figured i'd start by using these as a base.
by cutting off the engines and cockpit section and fliping it backwards, then grafting a turret from the lynx class destroyer you get this:

I painted them to look like the player one and player two ships from demonstar:


I did another in the merchant fleet colours but this time cut the 'engines' and 'nose' down a bit to make it look stubbier, like more of a shuttle type dealie, rather than a stud-fighter.

along side it is a ship that was originally supposed to represent the player ship from armalyte:

but it ended up looking more akin to one of these:

mining pods from gotg, so I figured I'd do it as another yellerun, and make it one of the mining-guild ships in jago's  fleet.

also I used some gs to convert one of my last chaos swiftdeaths:

into the usp talon from tyrian:


quite enjoying this games into models thing I got going on here...
more soon?

yes..



got a debris32 xeno fighter done. again with the lynx turret as the foresection (for a bit of shape difference).
as you can see its not any specific one of the debris32 aliens but has the general flavour of them...
trickier to get the gold colour than you'd think.
would have been very easy to make it too lustrous with ruddier copper-golds.
That would have looked wrong.
Whereas the sprites have more of a cold bronze-gold look...
I achieved it with tinbitz mixed with retributor armour... in truth (looking at the sprites again) I probably could have gone a bit brighter, although the shots I've taken do make it seem darker than it is in RL.  meh, whattayagonnado?
I added a bit of green to the weapons as this is a way of adding a bit more interest and also to reference the 'exhaust' colour they have in the game...

decided to repaint that xeno ship to be a bit lighter, after all:


Ive also converted and painted up another javelin into a truer representation of the splorkon systems XJ-37:

really happy with this one...

zaxxon ship conversion:

made from the flipped ass-end of an imperial bomber  mated back onto its cockpit, with the front wings removed and the rear wings trimmed to size/shape...
the colours were intended to represent the ship from the original arcade version:

(Colours are different depending on the ported version)
but it came out a bit off... still its obvious what it is eh?

Looks like Zaxxon.  8)

Such a waste I cannot remember all the old games I played on Amiga 2000 and Commedore 64.

I know! I lived on the c64 back in the day! (showing our age now!)

thanks for reminding me of zaxxon... not sure how I overlooked that one... doh!
think i'm done with these videogame little do-ers for now
 
anyway, I've revisited my torpedoes:

adding highlights that were sorely lacking afore and changing batch two to happy little red and white jobbies...
