    I took the liberty of seeing if I couldn't whip up a Dictator based on Gig's Tyrant.

    I think it turned out pretty alright, and will make a good base for a Mars battlecruiser.
    Edit: Whipped up a Gothic and a Lunar, too.

    use more grey. Even flat-black painted miniatures show lots of grey in the highlights when you take pictures of them.

    Yeah. I'll take another stab at it tomorrow!

    I still think engine glow or flame would much improve them. Right now they look very static.

    True, but I'm not really equipped to add anything truly elaborate to the sprites; drawing the lance batteries was about as much as I can handle safely. If Gig or someone drew the engine flames I could pretty easily add them on, though.

    And a Mars-class battlecruiser. I'm not sure if the dorsal lance turrets came out clear enough; thoughts?

    Well, that took a bit longer than I thought it would..

    Try that one on that background. Don't know about the engine flames, feel free to change them.

    Edit - good mods, Mongrel. I think you did mostly what I would have done. Now to take a break, and then start work on the Cobra..

    Hope I didn't steal your thunder, gig, I just wanted to help out. :o

    I thought the ships looked fine with their black outline against a black background. I'll go ahead and put the engine flames (I dig 'em) on my sprites but leave the outlines until a consensus on them is reached.

    Nah, my calc homework was calling out to me, so that needed to get done before I put any more time into this tonight. Your mods just saved me a bunch of time. :)

    Here's a comparison shot on the background real quick.

    I definitely like it better with the outlines. The new version looks too "fuzzy" against the black background.

    Hmm... an Emperor-class battleship isn't too far away from one of these cruisers, just a bit longer and bulkier...

    Okay, updated version of the basic Ork Boyz. Made 2-handed weapons actually 2-handed, used the red Slugga, and changed their armor to red to match the rest of the army's color scheme so far. Also fixed the highlights on the two-handed-weapon boyz.

    Original on top, updated version on bottom. Thoughts?

    oh, no I meant the heavy weapons.

    Sorry, should have been clearer.

    I realized when I tried to edit this one, diagonal weapons are hard to do....

    I think I'll give up on this one.... over the shoulder heavy weapons are fine :P

    Our story so far...

    bfg.jpg

    In order of appearance (left to right):
    - Overlord
    - Dominator
    - Gothic
    - Lunar
    - Mars
    - Dictator
    - Tyrant

    What a friendly group of names. ;)

    Also, I modded the mods, hopefully that was alright.

    Still to do:
    - The escorts (Cobra, and the other two whose names escape me)
    - The Battleships (Emperor and I think there's one more?)
    - The "templates" (blast markers, fighters, bombers, assault craft, torpedoes, am I forgetting something here?)
    - Some terrain

    Then we can move on to other fleets. Or not. This is what I'd like to get done before going on to another fleet, but that's not to say someone else shouldn't start one now. I've got ideas for the Chaos cruisers, but I'd love to see other attempts.

    edit - I forgot to add some engine action to the ships. Guess that should be on the list!

    I don't mean to step on your toes, just showing you what I was thinking.

    Edit: I didn't check this before posting and Sharp seems to have already gone along those lines.

    You have a very 2nd-ed look to all of your weapons :P

    The other escorts are the Firestorm (prow-mounted lance) and the Sword (all-around weapon batteries), and the other battleship is the Retribution (more weapon batteries than is really healthy, I mean holy shit). We also need the Dauntless light cruiser.

    Great work, everyone, this is shaping up to be basically the best thing that has ever been done.

    Damn, how could I forget about the Retribution. That thing was my kind of battleship. Way sweeter than that pansy ass Emperor class.

    Should the Armageddon ships be on the list? I've never used them, so I don't know how their rules affect balance or anything like that. They kind of look cool, though..

    At this point, if someone feels like drawing something they should just do it. Make what you feel like making etc... There will be plenty of time before the program is playable to fill out the lists.

    man, you and sharp nailed it. A lot of my models I have at home are second ed, which is why they end up looking the way they do. Nice job, guys. I'll use a lot of what you posted...

    In the mean-time, here is what I have so far. I really can't seem to nail the Rokkit Launcha, anyone want to try their hand at it?

    A'ight, I feel like making one of my boys, the Dauntless! Man, I loved these things back in the day. Plucky little bastards, all helping my escorts herd the Eldar into range of my big guns. Never said die, those two cruisers. One might have called them dauntless.

    Messing around with some ideas for the drop pod. The leftmost is the plain drop pod. I was experimenting with impact marks on the other ones... what do you guys think? It might be outside the scope of things, really.

    YES!! Perfect engine flare. This needs to be added to all the ships. They look much more dynamic now.

    Drawing the big ass eagle on the bow of that one will be a little hard, but other wise it would look very similar to the other battleships.

    Is anyone going to do the Armada ships? Voss Pattern stuff would be sweet.

    If this works the way I think it will, games will actually proceed quite a bit faster than on the tabletop (this is almost always true of board games which get converted to the computer). Although the change won't be as dramatic as games where the rules are built in to the program it will be quite noticable I think. eg: For axis and allies or monopoly the difference is huge. A game tha would take 4 hours can be played in about 20 minutes.

    This means much larger point value games (eg: ones that involve a thunderhawk or other forge world stuff) become much more reasonable to actually play.
