Centauri Liati by Hawkwall
That's cool! Though i think it'll look even better in action than pictures.. They always do.
I can't wait to command a fleet of those and blow some whitestars up!!! (That's what they were for, right?)
How did you get that "worn out" look on it? Is IT the work of the ambient occlusion map? Whatever it is, it looks awesome!
And yes, also in my opinion the centurion has probably the nicest side profile of all the centauri ships.
Quoting HawkWall, reply 2314Could someone tell me if the little pointy things on the Centurion miniature's front part are guns, or are they something different? I found a picture of all the gizmos that the ship has in the 'board game' and it says they aren't guns. Then again it could have been a different version of the ship.
In that PDF, it says theres a battle laser somewhere on the front bit, but the little things pointing to the sides don't seem to be weapons. Then again the Centurion i am basing the model on, is the one from mongoose publishing (I think) . As you can see the centurion on the pdf has its fins (The little upward/downward wings) tilted outward a little, when in the mogoose model they're not.
I am trying to get some more info on this.
Tobi-Wahn, would you be terribly angered if i altered the centurion's wing guns (The double barreled Twin arrays) a little?
In my opinion the barrels look a little stupid mounted on a sphere, so i'd alter them juuust a little. Like mount them on a half-cylinder or similar. This i would do for 2 reasons:
1. I think the modelers would have wanted to make it a little more detailed, but the model was so small they couldn't.
2. The sphere (Or half of it) is way too many triangles to look so non-detailed.
BUT! If you want it to be the way it is on the miniature, then i will make it so. And at its current state the ship is 2750 triangles, it is still awaiting your decision on the guns (Twin array).
