This is a project I and several other have had under wraps for a bit now but it's progressed far enough along that we feel it's time to show what we've done and see what folks think about it. So I'd like to go ahead and present the early stages of Battlegroup Helios for your enjoyment:

First up is the Helian Capital-class ship. It's roughly the same size as a cruiser from BFG if anyone is looking for a comparison. There will be several options for this and what I'm showing is the core ship without these in place. Some ideas are armor plating at the rear to protect the engines as well as cannon and sensor options for the split prow below.

Split prow:

These are some of the final designs, albeit still in rough sketch form. The goal will be to make this via CAD and go from there. So what do you think? Good, bad, ugly? We'd love to know if there is any interest in this kind of thing!

Love it! Will they be modular or will there be a different model for each class?

Awesome guys!

The goal is to allow some modularity to make the different classes easier to build without requireing a huge number of masters. Things like the prow and maybe weapons will be separate to allow customization.

Time to dust off the BFG collection.

Cool, I guess we'll need to get building then. At this point we have no plans to kickstart the project; we just don't see the need to do that for something that's pretty simple like this.

Are you planning on doing production castings or going straight to shapeways?
