Well here`s not to disappoint .......

Going to make something I designed back in 2005 for www.He-Man.org. They had some monthly challenges re-designing the old toys for the new generation after the start of the 2002 TV show. At the time I thought it was so cool - then I saw an ep of Battlestar - stole a lot of my thunder. Here, see what I mean .....

Main Idea
http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/concept_1_1.jpg

Some research
http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/concept_1_4.jpg

Ruff ideas
http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/concept_1_2.jpg

Ruff ideas
http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/concept_1_3.jpg


So now I`m giving it the 3D touch.

Everyone knows how much I love He-Man here, so I thought why not.
The Horde was a group of toys for Heman, which got put into She-Ra tv show because the Heman cartoon was being killed off. These evil robots ran the planet and needed to get about fast to keep a evil rain over everybody. The idea was that there would be red lights between the panels so when flying over head it would look like the Horde Logo, scaring the people to thinking that they were always watching.

For those who have never seen a horde trooper

Lead by this guy
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v7...de/horde_0.jpg

Anyway think its perfect for this challenge - My own design in my fav cartoon style.

so here I go...

Well blocked out the main shapes.

http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/wip_1_1.jpg

Making the wing flat for now and will curve them in to shape at a later stage, but they are the same shape as the horde logo - With them flat its making modelling a little easier for now. Think it will be more high poly than low - want lots of nice little details in there. Not sure yet if I am going to do cockpit for challenge maybe later on, but def no driver yet.

Been looking at the cylon raiders a lot and man I feel so ripped off.

Got the top part of the main body done - mostly panels which were tricky to get in the right places - 5 each side and 3 on top. Did give the tail fin a go but I think im too tired now (it does not look good) and want to go kill stuff on dead space 2.

Looking good tweetytunes! Are you using nurbs or poly's for the whole ship?

Polys for now - not a nurbs fan - but I tend to use them for stuff like cables so not ruling them out

Thanks ....

This is a lot easier to do on paper than in 3d.

http://www.ravage3d.com/images/horde/wip_1_3.jpg


Got the shell of the main part of the ship almost sorted (hull going into the side bits at mo) and a lot happier with the fin. Need some detail to join the side bits to the main part and then some way of joining the fin to the back. Also need to think of how this sits when still (wheels/under carage)

Got the main shape of the wings done and tweaked the hell out of the panels all around the ship. Got some of the gears done for the fin as well. Also start the parts needed to open the cockpit.

Going to keep the wings flat - I just think they look better that way. Did play with the idea to make it more bat like, but did not think it gives the idea of speed.

Cheers guys - I am hoping that someone starts up soon, but I`ll take a free 3rd gold any time.

Still having problems think on how this guy would be parked but im 90% sure now that I will be doing the inside of the cockpit

Really boring night for me - GF out, not in to American Football, and seen all the films on the movie channels and not in the mood for dead space 2 - so more work on my baby it was. Added some engines and some detail to the rear of the ship - added the bombs and the guns. I think for the exterior all I need now is landing gear.

Taking a few days off - so everyone can catch up (Only joking) Hehe

Putting some work together as I might be going on a VFX course at Escape Studios in London as I sick of being out of 3D work.

So if you dont see any update for a few days its not because I have dropped out.
