    Black Templars "Eternal Crusader" Battlebarge (CG 3D project)

    This log is a step-by-step (WIP) 3D computer graphic modeling of the Black Templars fleet flagship: the Eternal Crusader Battlebarge.
    It's my intention to enrich the log over time with new contents, based on W40K/BFG style/design, and it will be primarily focused on Black Templars chapter.
    Current content status:
    - Black Templars Light Cruiser (Eternal Crusader Escort Vessel)
    - Black Templars Land Raider "Helbrecht" Pattern Relic
    - Black Templars Automated Orbital Sentinel
    - Black Templars Land Raider "Helbrecht" Pattern Relic Advanced

    Ok, I've started from the battleship central body structure with upper deck and macrocannons on their site. Here is the rendering

    Looks like a good start, are you planning on using it in an animation?

    Many thanks Hairy Norseman, for the moment I'm testing a still volumetric scene for the battlebarge. After this I'll try to animate the scene also inserting the Adeptus Mechanicus Omnissiah's Victory battleship that I already modeled (rendering composition follows).
    Meantime, a little update on battlebarge

    Cool. What are you using? Maya?

    3DSMax and its polygonal modeling tools plus FinalRender engine for wip rendering

    EDIT: I forget to say that the battlebarge will be highly-detailed, much more than original model (like the Omnissiah's Victory model)

    hey andrea! Doy uo ever work on character models? A fully fleshed out black templar would be beautiful to see. I hear Z-brush is great for characters

    Eh eh, not yet mate and ... yes, Z-brush (or Mudbox) is extremely powerful in character modeling field but usually the base mesh is modeled in Max or Maya, and than imported into those software for detailing work.
    Regarding me, I like sci-fi mechanical modeling (recently I've modeled a Black Templars Land Raider new pattern; I named it "Helbrecht" in honour of the chapter commander).

    Assemblage test (head + central body). The bombardment cannons turrets on upper deck are preliminary version and will be restyled later.

    Awesome stuff. Any reason why you're doing it??

    Thank you for the comment rewolf31 .
    First of all, I'm improving my polygonal modeling and rendering skills; second, I want to setup a complete scene (I don't know yet if intra or extra-atmospheric) for battle animation (maybe also adding my adeptus mechanicus battleship) or something similar.

    Many thanks Wolf Scout Ewan , next step will be the modeling of the main body with a four floors structure, towers, wings, engines, heavy weapons, rudder and so on.
    I want to make a model with a level of detail much higher than the original.

    Ok, let's start with the first two floors on the main body.
    Meanwhile here is the preliminary test on intra-atmospheric scene setup by means of Ozone plugin (spheres are useful for lighting system test)

    Liking the progress. I think the third atmos test look best.

    Awesome, simply awesome. Are you going to get this one and the AdMech ship textured? Because you know, a model that beautiful demands something more than dull grey.

    Also, any chance to get some wallpapers with them?

    Thank you very much Melika & Idaan, these are only work in progress rendering; for final scene I'm setting up a complex metal shader: multi-layer + anisotropy + gravity driven dirt effect (not to add dirt to the ship, rather to bring out details).
    I definitely prefer to add details with geometry rather than with texture and, most of all, unwrapping and texturing this object (when it will be completed) would be literally a suicide
