Heh heh - thanks 93rd! Liking your description of battling inside the hulk.

chilledmonkeybrains Cheers Lemmy! The real hardware will be coming soon... ;)

I can see your point, Grimzag; it certainly would be easier! But I'm a bit old fashioned and like to build things from scratch, by hand.

Although, as I've mentioned I think somewhere in a previous post, I do have contacts in rapid prototyping who I might use at some point in the future...

Lemmy1916 Very nice stuff, chief. Can't wait to see it applied on real hardware!

chilledmonkeybrains Yep - all those little details will indeed be a pain to make - but hopefully it'll all be worth it!

Haskanael loving the 3D models, all those little details are going to be a pain to build.

chilledmonkeybrains @ntaw - At this point I'm merely thinking about the narrative campaign event next year (which, incidentally, will combine 40k with RPG elements). However, depending on how splendiferous the final hulk is (or more importantly, how well it is received), then getting pieces cast up for retail may be on the cards...



WALL SECTIONS








As you can see, I've been messing around with a concept for a wall section. Plenty of rivets (including some spiky ones), plus some pipework. The red pipe is some sort of plasma conduit. The lumen strip globes could easily be added at the top of each section, or even every other section.

I can easily place a viewport or gothic casement in these wall sections, giving a view out into space.

ntaw This table is being made specifically for an event, but are you thinking of trying to produce more for retail in the future if it goes well?
