Zeus Light Cruiser Update: Painted Pics

Posted by Mangozac on July 31, 2010

Just a quick update to share pictures of the Zeus Light Cruiser as painted by good Resin Addict friend Vaaish. His beautiful paint work has for me personally provided a fantastic end to the project which overall has turned out quite well. Now I need to pull my finger out and paint some of my own (perhaps after I finish my little side project)!

By the way, Vaaish has a great little tutorial on how he paints his BFG ships over on the Two Lands Creative blog.

Project: Zeus Light Cruiser

Posted by Mangozac on July 11, 2010

Well after four months of work I have finally completed my latest project: the Zeus Light Cruiser for use in Battlefleet Gothic. This project was inspired by the lack of a model to represent the Voss light cruiser variants (Endeavour, Endurance and Defiant) and following some encouragement from some BFG fans I decided to take it on. The resulting design is a multi-part resin kit that can be used to represent any Imperial light cruiser pattern.

A massive thanks goes out to Vaaish who, in addition to giving a lot of persuasion for me to start the project in the first place, provided some amazing concept art and constant top quality feedback. He’ll be painting up a couple of casts and I’ll be sure to share pictures of them here when he’s done!

So here are some pictures of the process, including concept art, work in progress shots and final pictures of the resulting resin casts configured as two options. Resin Addict forum members can see the entire project log here.

Whilst I’m very happy with how the project turned out, I’m also glad to see the end of it! I’m now looking forward to getting back to some 28mm modelling and my Tau mecha project.
