    I tweaked the floor panels a bit...

    Here's the 'normal' ones, so without the grill:


    Here are the ones with the grill:

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    I've been restructuring my Photobucket, which means the pics might not work anymore. However, you can still check them all out over here.

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    Finally got some test prints in! One thing I can say is that I'm kinda digging Shapeways' FXD material, it really handles the detail rather well. The only downside is that there are still printlines and the material would need extensive cleaning. Subtle Discord wrote some interesting stuff on that.

    Another 'downside' of the material is that it's see-through, making it rather tricky to photograph.

    But yeah, enough talk!

    Been working on some Epic scale tanks:

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    Don't have access to my pics at the moment so I'll have to do this through link:

    Working on a new hull

    Tank next to a 6mm human

    Flame weaponry

    As good as ready

    New turret variants

    Oh yeah, and the tank (with 4 different turrets and two dozer blades) has been shipped off to Vanguard Miniatures.

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    Continued working on the siege tanks. The kit will basically include the hull, two types of dozer blades, and two weapons: an tank-hunting heavy laser cannon, and a shell firing bunker buster.

    First up: the tank hunter:




    Whilst the bunker buster cannon still needs to be designed, I got distracted. I like the idea that the hull could also be used as a basis for other tanks. Thus the missile launcher was born. Keep in mind that the current missile launcher will be totally redesigned. I just used this one to give you an idea what a back mounted weapon will look like. I've also added a heavy machine gun like weapon to the front, it can (optionally) be replaced for a heavy flamethrower.

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    Just shipped off a bunch of 6mm scaled upgrade bits for the tank I've designed for Vanguard Miniatures:


    From left to right: Front hull iconography plate, twin linked HMG, twin linked flamethrowers, twin linked subatomic heat weapons. Basically your three different types of Immolation tanks for the religious sisterhood. But could probably also be used for more inquisitorial themed armies.


    From left to right: left missile pod, right missile pod, missile launcher turret, heavy laser cannon, light battle cannon, quad autocannons, medical transport front hull icon. I decided to ditch the roof part of the medical transport for multiple reasons: (a) it was too thin to cast at this time (b) doing it true justice would mean re-designing a hull a bit (c) economic reasons. Note that the medical transport is most likely an objective, so going all crazy on it regarding design work and printing/casting simply isn't worth the money.


    Extra armour for the IVR tank, either plating or reactive armour.

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    Just wanted to quickly share my current vehicle pool with you. At the moment it consists of 17 different tanks (with the possibility of it becoming 21 if you're counting the turrets from the gun emplacements)



    So yeah, from front to back and from left to right:
    -"Hunter Hull": Bunker buster cannon, anti-armour heavy laser cannon
    -"Siege Hull" with "spray weapons pack": Heavy flame weapon, subatomic heat weapon, chemical spray weapon
    -"Standard Pack" (standard hull): multiple laser cannon, twin linked heavy machine guns, flame weapon, automatic cannon
    -"Oddities Sprue" (standard hull): quad automatic cannons, light battle cannon, multiple laser cannon with multiple missile launchers, heavy laser cannon, medical transport
    -"Weapons of Faith" (standard hull): Twin linked flame throwers, twin linked heavy machine guns, twin linked subatomic heat weapons.

    Very nicely detailed.

    What design program do you use?

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    @Blackcherry: I used SketchUp to make these designs.

    @Karak: Thanks! I hope they'll sell since it'll encourage companies such as Vanguard Miniatures to accept more of my submissions.

    In the meantime, take a quick look at my gun emplacements.

    In case you're curious about the dimensions. It's 45.82mm long, 30.84mm wide, and 11.27mm tall.

    Re: 3d modelling bits

    The Apocalypse Heavy Battle Tank I've designed for Vanguard Miniatures is as good as ready. All I need before shipping it off for printing is some final feedback.

    So any suggestions, comments, etc. are more than welcome.
