A little failed experiment...

Image

Reason it failed is that I can't get the model to be water tight. In order to 3d print models, there shouldn't be any holes in them. But since SketchUp isn't really made for this kinda thing, it messes up the geometry. So when I try to ensure everything is water tight, it totally messes up the model, basically removing most of the hull. I guess I'll leave this one for what it is, for now at least...

I'd need to find a producer and distributor in order to do that. ;-)

Why don't you just ask the other guys who does it and that posts here?

Delved into 28mm scale territory again, this time some creepy

Note that all have the exact same tail in the exact same position. This will of course change, but I needed to get the general shape of it right.

I've also been adding some more detailing on the heads to individualize them a bit more. But more on that later.

Another thing I've been playing a bit with is angling the legs slightly on the x-axis, but it isn't that visible yet since the legs are still just the outline rather than the actual model.

But yeah, to make this relevant to this forum, I could imagine some parts, such as the head or tail, being used on Chaos or Ork titans...

Hi!

That reminds me of some of the models from the old Legions of Steel game. :)

Hi!

Make them in 6mm. They'd be cool "not necrons" cyberbeasts. ;)

The wingspan on these is 18mm, I'm also working on a slightly different variant with a wingspan of 28mm. Would those be large enough for 6mm scale then?

Little update on the Skyrays (working title):

The main design is ready, now it's basically detailing and fixing some stuff here and there.

I kinda noticed I'm working in packs of 5 when designing these robotic creatures, if you'd then cut up the models the variations could be endless. I would love to do some robotic trees, but also larger creatures and even weirder stuff like robotic ghouls/zombies (basically undead humans with robotic insides), but for that I'd need to improve my digital sculpting skills a bit. Well...I did get Sculptris, so maybe I'll figure it out eventually...
