Thanks, need to do the Nova-class Frigate and the Destroyer ... and maybe a Thunderhawk and the fleet will be complete.

Here are the others ships I've done already.

Cool much better pic of the strike crusier, think the front of the battlebarge needs a little more width personaly but all good so far. Gotta love BFG.

You should do a little research into naval formations to, just to add a touch of realism.

Just out of curiosity: What 3d program are you using?
Thanks! :P

Right, so why arn't they in formation! :P

Just because space is 3-D doesn't mean tried and true (and recognizable) formations should be discarded. :P

I use Doga L3 to make my ships and render the pics.

Well, as Kahn would learn the hard way ... its hard to put 2D naval tactics into a 3D environment. The Battle Barges are near the center (like normal naval combat) with the Strike Cruiser and Frigates surrounding them. That is pretty basic naval fleet organization as I recall.

Is that how the fleet travel on the island hopping campaigns of WWII? Because that is always how I imagined Space Marines traveling, since the parallels are obvious.

Just for fun sorry. But if you know someone working on a game that needs 3D models .... please let me know.

Awesome work man. Be perfect for a personal website or one that you enjoy. You might want to check with a SM specific site from one of the members here and i bet they'd love to have your stuff presented with full credits to you.

Good Job. :P

Ahem, yes it does mean they should be discarded.

Look at what Aircraft did to the naval arena. Now imagine those bombers being Battleships instead and you'll see why you need to adopt changes to formations.

:P :P
Nice World. I'll take it.

Hey, excellent models!

Also, if I do remember correctly, There is a BFG mod project going on for the PC game Sins of a Solar Empire. They may already have the models already designed and everything but I'm sure they could use your help if your interested (and if they're still working on it. I"m not really sure)

Thanks, I'll check it out. Do you have a addy for it, there are too many mods in a google search?

I think after I finish the Hunter-class I'll start on the 3 AdMech ships I have reference pics for.

I WAS gonna make a comment on scale, but then I remembered the source would be a G.S. Soto novel and thought, "The hell does that guy know?" He had strike cruisers and frigates actually docked up against the battlebarge in one of the first 3 dawn of war books. The scale of the barge would have to be somewhere on the scale of about 8 kilometers to make this even possible...

Ahem, a Battlebarge IS 8 Kilometres long.

The Vessel you see in the Foreground of this video as the Battlebarge "passes by" is the Strike Cruiser you used as your pimped ride for the whole game.

As a size measure.

Battlebarge: 6-10 Kilometres.
Strike Cruiser: 2.5 - 3 Kilometres.
Frigates 1-1.5 Kilometres
Destroyers: 600m-1 Kilometre.
Nice World. I'll take it.

Nice. It looks more realistic now, other than everybody on top of one another. Is that the entire Chapter Fleet?
