DefianceIndustries continues to round out his WC1 fleet with two sharp new additions. The Raptor that was previewed last month has been completed, and it looks great. The fighter's colors are spot on and there are plenty of gorgeous little details like 'TCS Tiger's Claw' stenciled into the side. As a bonus, the Hornet is also finished. All the compliments for the Raptor apply here as well, and both ships are also posed at some wonderful angles. Many people have modeled the Hornet over the years, but we can always use more beautiful ships!
My WC1 addiction continues... I revised the Raptor, the old hull panels were kinda crappy so these look better. For additional fun and frolic, I made new unit insignia because... well I have too much free time?
Also, a Hornet! Because the Killer Bees always get the next shift.
New Process Speeds Up WC1 Shipyard
There continues to be progress in the exciting WC1 Sprite Refresh project. In order to import high quality ships into the original game engine, modern renders must first be converted into dozens of snapshot angles to simulate 3D. This can be a very tedious process to align and get right, so Goliath is developing a technique to automate the image creation. (2018-11-20)
