Mech's Stupendous Shipyard

Postby Mechworks » Tue Dec 03, 2019 2:37 pm

Much like on the Frames board, this is a place to put both my (massive) backlog and to have all my ships in one place. future builds will be getting their own threads in addition to an entry here.

note that Microspace is definately my first love when it comes to Lego, so expect plenty of funtimes.

These are all incredible, and I'm amazed at how diverse/distinct the styles of each fleet are from each other.

Also, I have to ask, how do you get that neon glow effect in your renders?

Emissive lighting. has its own section in the 'lighting' tab of mecabricks' free renderfarm, and you can configure emissive materials in pretty much any decent 3D modeling program.

developing a distinctive style is about 40-50% of the work that goes into any given force, really. common coloration, similar design elements, and consistent overall shaping are the three keys of successful faction design. for example for the Outsider them I just went with some simple guidelines- horizontal symmetry, taller than wide/long in the main body, and vaguely cephalopodic with hints of Gothic, plus an all-black color sceme with trans neon green highlights. then I pretty much just played around with the various tenticlicular parts until I got something interesting.
