Warhammer 40k sort of starship..

Ok… haven’t been doing much with blender for the last month because of school (and because of a war on ogame :p).

Was looking at the PROMETHEUS thread (for the 100th time or so :p) and decided I wanted to make my very own spaceship, but with a completely different style ^^ I’ll be trying to use late-gothic/high-gothic elements together with sci-fi stuff, and so far it’s going pretty good :slight_smile: Almost completed the mid-section of the hull with the cargo-bay

Dunno what I’m going to do after I’ve finished the cargo-bay section, but I think I’ll try to get some nicer wings and a bridge…



C&C apreciated…

EDIT; Lol… having problems >.< For some reason blender won’t set rotation point to the center of the selected verticles, but to where the cursor is… anyone knows how to fix??

Your pivot point is changed. To cursor.
You can change it with the highlighted button.
Try setting it to median point.

It would also suggest trying the other ones. They can be really useful sometimes.


OMG, tnx :smiley:

Looks good so far. The cargo bays look pretty cool. No crits so far cant wait to see more.

im diggin it more arches and more butressing would be sweet.

Small update… Added some more detail to the middle hull and started work on the rear of the ship where the bridge will be…


Arches on the rear-section [Edit: just noticed that lighting on this one sux :p] [Edit2: Added better picture with better lighting…]


Detail on the mid-section, don’t know why that collum is so black…

Maybe it are the normals.

Have you tried selecting everything (A)(in EDIT mode) and then pressing “Ctrl+n”?

Nope… but I’ve just set them back to sollid, looks good enough :slight_smile:

Been working on the rear-section of the hull, added some small turrets… well, actually they’re huge turrets (the small cube on each of them is a ‘bridge’ for the turret)

It still looks a bit too empty i think, but don’t have a clue what else I could add :stuck_out_tongue: Think I’ll do some pipes to make the area behind the turrets more interesting fillin up space above the arches will be more difficult, but I’m sure I’ll find something that makes it look more interesting >.< :stuck_out_tongue:

EDIT; Close up on one of the turrets…


Ok… last update for the day, added more arches, and making the base for a somewhat bigger turret… going to bed now ^^ :stuck_out_tongue:


Looks good. I always did like the WH40k gothic take on science fiction architecture, both on the ground and in space. It would be cool to see a slightly further-out view of the ship, as its hard to see from just these detail shots how everything fits together overall.

Lol, here you go


Will make the ship longer and probably somewhat taller…

Ok, haven’t done much this week cuz of school, did some small stuff today… also found out what the ambiant occlusion button does, and rly liking it ^^ :stuck_out_tongue:

Some detail on the wings:


Tried to make some rosettes (dunno if this is correct english, but atleast it’s correct dutch :p(I hope ^^)) And improved upperlevel of the middle section a bit…

And just a pic because I liked it ^^


I’d like to have some comments/critique cuz I’m getting kinda repetitive on arches and stuff ^^ (I just copy/paste the same arch over and over again and scale it to the right size >_< )

About filling in space, maybe make some huge stained glass windows :wink:
What you have so far looks really good, I’m looking forward to seeing this finished. The curves on the detail look amazingly smooth!
