    Nice textures on that Nova class! You should try those on the Omega, because I think you nailed it!

    Some help with that Warlock, including four small, but very clear shots of the original model. It was supposed to appear in a game, but when the plug was pulled on it the lead animator made these shots available on the web.

    The first official shots:

    You're welcome. I posted a few more pictures, including one of the missile silos on the side of the ship.

    Some more notes: Those four angled nozzles on the sides of the front of the ship, just below and in front of the ships name, were maneuvering thrusters, not weapons. Underneath them, however, are those same plasma casters you find in the Nova and the Omega. The main weapons were two radically more powerful versions of the Omega's particle beam cannons, fixed forward underneath the nose.
    The turrets with fat barrels were somewhat smaller versions of the Nova's guns, and the turrets with thin barrels (two backwards aimed, one on top of the nose) were railguns.

    The large front spar was a sensor platform: The two petals attached to it could unfold to offer better hyperspace navigation detection.

    The forward bay, underneath the nose and above the sensor spar was a launch bay only. Fighters and shuttles were supposed to return to the ship by the starboard side bay. There is NO port bay, that extended part was supposed to hold work shops etc.. The hangar bay ran for most of the lenght of the ship.

    The engine section had four regular engines, plus two gravity engines, one on top, one on the bottom. These were shorter and fatter tahn the regular engines, but detail work is impossible to find. We simply never got that good a look at the engine section.

    Likewise we have no real idea of how the various smaller turrets look. Also, those clear pictures were from an early 2000's game, not the detailed models from a TV show. You've got some serious work ahead :D

    Here are images of the original model made by Tim Earls.

    Ooh, nice, I never knew about those. Damn, there's even a blueprint for all the right measurements! You can even see there's two different types of point defense turrets!
    Great references for -=sAs=-'s coming model.

    good to see some work, the hull looks right but more detailing is of course needed. i look forward to seeing it progress.
  • MihoshiMihoshi0 Posts: 0Member
    Missed you starting on this. Nice work on that main hull and it's texture. Engine block looks a bit flimsy, but at this stage it's probably just a place holder.
  • -=sAs=--=sAs=-171 Posts: 0Member
    Thanks :)
    But its isnt texture :D

    Don't remember this ship, which season did it appear in? You'll be happy to know that your work has inspired me to dust off my old B5 boxsets and give them a nostalgia filled rewatch. Damn this series is in dire need of a Star Trek series style Bluray or Dvd re-release with updated effects shots and a clean transfer etc, still an awesome show to watch now as is, but obviously being early cgi that stuff has dated quickly, but the shows strength was always as much the characters if not more so, than the effects.

    I remember JMS having HD in mind from the start, shooting in 16x9 and thinking "oh, we'll just re-do the effects in ten-fifteen years when they get good enough." Yeah, hasn't happened. So I guess it's up to us. As much as I like seeing the Wrath of Khan being fantastically re-created, the original is fine the way it is.
  • TALON_UKTALON_UK0 Posts: 0Member
    Aye, Chris's talents might be better spent on recreating B5 effects shots, you'd certainly be able to tell the difference and improve upon the originals as highlighted in this thread.

    I don't think the Warlock appeared at all in B5 itself, I know it showed up once or twice in Crusade and then in the "flash-forward" scene in Lost Tales but that was it.
  • Knight26Knight26186 Posts: 832Member
    Didn't it also appear in the last episode of B5?
