The Romulan Wars

edited March 2018 in Work in Progress #1
Well I had promised myself that I wouldnA’t start anything new. So much for that. Just had a flash of an idea for what a Romulan ship might look like during the beginning of the Romulan Wars so I blocked it in real fast. Since I might have a new gig I canA’t talk about at the moment I donA’t know how much work IA’ll be able to get done on this. Or any of my other projects.

    nice to see something romulan. very blocky at the moment so will look forward to seeing how it progresses.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    That's why it's called blocking in. :D

    I've always been a fan of the Romulans.

    Foz.....Do you mind if I take this basic shape and play with it.....looks simple enough of a starting shape that I see some real fun possibilities with it.....Not sure if I will do any particular genre, just a nice starship.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    No problem. Go right ahead.
  • rwkingrwking176 Posts: 155Member
    Thank you. I know that I am nowhere near your expertise in creating these wonderful ships that you do. I will try to do this one up right though. Now, on a differnt note....Please o please.....with sugar on top....whipped cream, and a cherry.....please let your next museum ship be the Bison. I have been waiting to see your take on what is my favorite SF museum ship.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    What really matters is that you have fun doing the work, no matter how it might turn out.
    Well I already started to block in the shapes for the Bison so it might be the ship I work on next. No promises. :D

    UPDATE...
    Did a little work on the engines. The pics are bigger than I normally do because I rendered them on my new machine while I was rendering pics of my spacestation on the old one.

    the fuselage area seems too wide and a non circular cross section my look better. the double wing design is nice.
  • cavebearcavebear178 Posts: 623Member
    Looking good, looking good :thumb: And I very much appreciate the larger images!
  • VK08VK080 Posts: 0Member
    Gee that looks awfully familiar O_O;;;; hmmm

    I agree; perhaps if aft of the immediate "head" section the lower half were to be deformed from a convex curve along the sides, to a concave one?

    Yes. I know.


    UPDATE...
    Things are starting to come together here. I’m really starting to dive into what Max 2014 can do and I’m enjoying it. I’m getting more done on the warp engines and getting the shape of the wings about were I want them. I’ve also added impulse engines and I think the shuttle bay will be stuck in there underneath. I’ve also merged the two halves of the main hull together.

    starting to look properly romulan now with that wing panelling.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    UPDATE...
    I’ve added more detail to the wings and a fin. Not sure about the fin I like it but I don’t know if it works.

    I like the overall design, very classic and very Romulan.
    I would keep the fin, it looks more Romulan with it. :)

    fin is a good addition, wings are coming on great but i still think the fuselage is a little to wide and circular.
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    UPDATE...
    Here’s something I haven’t worked on in awhile. I added more detail to the wings and reaction control thrusters to the warp engines. Well, being Romulan they might be called over reaction control thrusters.

    Those pylons are looking very nice!

    Wow, very nice. I'm impressed that you managed to basically slap one large and two small cylinders together, and yet it comes out looking distinctly Romulan!
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    UPDATE...
    I added some kind of venty thing to the back of the pylon. And lens flares. :D
    2142_a_00000_00000.jpg
    A bunch of new details to the warp engine. Don’t know how much more I’ll add.

  • spacefighterspacefighter0 Posts: 0Member
    really coming together as a design now that details are going on. but it needs more, and certainly far more details on the currently smooth hull structure.
  • ElowanElowan0 Posts: 0Member
    Is that ship in some sort of atmosphere? Else why would there be flares around the lights?

    as far as i'm aware lens flares are caused by the camera lens regardless of whether the photo is being taken in a vacuum or the atmosphere.

    UPDATE...
    I’ve bee unable to get online for a few days. My internet has gotten pissy for some reason.
    So anyway I decided to pull out a ship I had started to work on several years ago.

    Ohhhh I like that ship. (The Romulan one looks great as well.)
  • XFozzbouteXFozzboute571 Posts: 1,600Member
    UPDATE...
    I decided that the RCS was looking craptacular so I added a few more bits and now I’m happy with it.
    2146.jpg
    This is what the thrusters on the saucer look like. Unfortunatly I lost this save and will have to do the work all over again. Oh well.

    Nice work.
  • spacefighterspacefighter0 Posts: 0Member
    not sure where that RCS cluster(in the top image) is on the vessel(or which vessel it is on) but it certainly looks cool. bottom one rather nice also.
  • AresiusAresius338 Posts: 4,125Member
    By the look of thatcluster, I'd say it's thatlittle gadgetty thing on the aft nacelle from the ship in post #26...
