Nicodemus' Airship
12/10/13 at 8:37am
 
So I mentioned in my warmachine thread that I was working on something else... It has been at the back of my mind since 2008 or so to create an airship, but I didn't want a small one, I wanted one that was going to command fear and respect Wink  And so, I built my own Chaos Dwarf Airship:

The Indefatigable
...

...

...

...

The first day of construction started out like this:
...

I also ordered an acrylic rod from Amazon to use for support.  The support rod has a 1" diameter and is 2ft long, the airship itself is a bit more than 1½ft tall, so the whole thing is just under 4ft tall.
...

I also scrapped my initial designs of using empty 2L pop bottles as I decided the gas bags needed to be about double the size that they had been, and to keep weight down I went with insulation foam and then hollowed out each piece.  It took many days to make these stacks of foam doughnuts into smooth torpedoes.
...


I'm still working on this thing too, but it's more than 90% done.  Oh, and it's battery powered, there are 4 lights, two in the pyres at the back of the airship, one on the maidenhead/minotaurhead's axe and another one inside the daemon-fuelled furnace on the main deck.

The armaments and crew complement are:
1 Captain
1 Sorcerer of the Furnace (Daemonsmith)
1 Helmsman
1 Planesman
4 Infernal Guard Bridge Officers
2 Chaos Dwarf Warrior Main Deck Guards
10 Hobgoblin Crew
1 Black Orc Furnace Slave Worker
8 Cannon/Rocket crew (mixed Chaos Dwarf and Hobgoblins)

1 Deck Main Deck Anchor Cannon
2 Earthshaker Cannons (in the bow)
8 Death Rockets

plus 7 slave prisoner models (1 Dwarf, 1 Snotling, 1 Skaven, 2 Humans, 2 Gnoblars)

So ignoring the prisoners, that's 29 models and 11 shooty things Wink That should just about do it!

The word "hobby" doesn't seem to quite fit here.
