Thread: Scratchbuilt Eldar superheavy transport - "Pegasus"

  1. #1

    Scratchbuilt Eldar superheavy transport - "Pegasus"

    It's been a while since I posted on Warseer but I've been lurking in the meantime. Thought I'd share some photos of my latest (and last, for the time being - need to actually paint some of my collection after this) Eldar conversion project.

    It's a superheavy transport called the Pegasus, inspired by a small image of a large Eldar vehicle visible in a bit of artwork of the Lugganath Craftworld in the 5th ed rulebook:



    Underside concept:



    Front:



    Anti-grav vanes WIP:



    I'm resigned to making the anti-grav vanes rather than re-using Falcon/Wave Serpent ones, since the outline of the wings is too different to make it work. Can anyone recommend a custom laser-cutting service I could use to get the vanes cut? I'll then glue them in place by hand. I just don't fancy cutting dozens and dozens of them by hand from 2mm plasticard....

    The main hull and troop compartment (this has since been shortened, but is still ~8x larger than that of a Falcon, so theoretically could transport up to 50 troops - I'll probably take this down to a more reasonable 40 or thereabouts when I get around to finalising the rules):



    Rear view:



    And yeah, I know the Storm Serpent fulfills a similar role, but my only objectives here really were to scratchbuild something really big and to make the vehicle in the artwork come to life.

    The fluff I'm toying around with is that it was originally (waaay back in the Eldar's heyday) a civilian transport or some kind of heavy lifter, that has now, since the Fall, become used as a military transport. It will have beefed-up Wave Serpent force-field rules. No idea about weaponry besides the standard twin-linked shuriken catapults (or where any other weapons will go at this point).

    Many more pictures and notes are on my site - http://eldar.arhicks.co.uk/miniature..._pegasus_1.php.

    Comments welcome!

    Nice, this is turning out great.

    Really like the look of the sketch for the underside.

    Looking very good and you seem to approach this with the necessars determination and level of skill. It doesn't happen too often that people dare to tackle scratchbuilding Eldar models but every few years a hero comes along who dares to get it done. I'm pretty excited already.

    It sucks.. Err that is to say it is so good, me and my abilities feel threatened.

    Always get those two mixed up..

    No suggestion on the build, I can't think of a way to improve on it very solid work on a difficult style of mini.

    However you might want to lower the brightness a bit on your images. Would make them a lot easier to see.

    Ah - noted, brightness doesn't seem to bad on my screen(s). I'll correct that when I next update the site (more pics to come in the next couple of days).

    I did not think of that. My screen is as far as I know fairly dark so i figured if I had issues practically everyone would. Might be worth getting a third opinion.

    A truly inspiring build! If anyone viewing this has not check his site: do so! Lots of WIP pictures and drawings detailing the build. Well worth the look.

    Thanks for all your kind comments

    A small update for you with some more pictures.

    The modified troop compartment (will still take ~50 troops, based on comparison to a Falcon's capacity of 6):



    A mock-up of the main body of the Pegasus with the bits I'm currently working on:



    The wings aren't shown in the above photo - they will extend outwards to either side as per the original artwork.

    I'm making good progress and I'm getting close to having enough components sufficiently complete to glue most of the main body together.

    This is beautiful.

    Out of what are you producing such beautiful and amazing shapes? And with what tools?!

    Thanks!

    I'm not using anything particularly unusual - just a lot of plasticard, White Milliput and Green Stuff. Mostly I just cut, file, saw and sand things by hand.
