Check Out This Warhammer 40k Battlefleet Gothic Inspired Corvette in Space Engineers

Posted on

Check Out This Warhammer 40k Battlefleet Gothic Inspired Corvette in Space Engineers I really like the floating Gothic Vatican look of Warhammer 40k, BattleFleet Gothic. Now in Warhammer 40k lore. These ships are kilometers long. With upwards of millions of servitors. This corvette is scaled down appropriately for space engineers and my current processing power( my computer starts choking even with this scale). I tried to stay with the general Gothic styling of the Warhammer 40k, Battlefleet Gothic metaverse. This is by no means a scale or even accurate replica. I took the general philosophy and styling of the imperial fleet ( dark Gothic ).  I adapted it to the constraints of the Space Engineers modeling and physics engine. Apparently the excepted philosophy in imperial space warfare is to break up the enemy formation with front firing missiles or torpedoes. Then charge right through the middle and broadside. This design is an excellent brawler. The front heavy armored ram is several large grid blocks thick Certain variants of this Warhammer 40k Battlefleet Gothic Corvette are excellent battlers and can take several direct hits to the front armored ram. With the gravity cannon variant this Corvette can cut most ships in half with one burst up front.  On each side are 3+ rocket pods for broadsidery. Along with the triple rocket pod turret up front for strafing.   Inertial acceleration is adequate. Since the closest thing to void shields in Space Engineers are the gravity generators at this point. I have also been experimenting with gravity based ore shields for the design. This is still not survival ready. I have to model the interior and seal it up. Then I’ll put up this Warhammer 40k,  BattleFleet Gothic inspired corvette on Steam.  More to come.

Warhammer 40k | Imperial Language Imperium | High Gothic ( Latin )

Warhammer 40k | Imperial Language Imperium | High Gothic ( Latin ) http://s-and-j.co.uk/warhammer/latin/index.html These are Latin phrases I consider particularly suitable for use in Warhammer 40,000. I had been lurking in the newsgroup alt.language.latin for some time when I realised many of the requests for translations were actually from Warhammer 40,000 players.   Also, the same requests were coming up time and time again.  Furthermore, I was seeing translations that, while not related to Warhammer 40K, would be suitable. There are already many websites on the InterNet for Latin translations, so what makes this one different? – the translations are those I feel suitable for use on Warhammer 40K models and buildings; – they are generally short; – they have been translated by people who are confident in their use of Latin; – there are few of the humourous translations (‘eat my shorts’) as they are covered on other websites. Where you see more than one Latin phrase for an English phrase, just choose the one you like the sound of. Tips and suggestions for use: – ALL CAPITALS ARE OK; – A Mix Of Capitals And Lower Case Is OK Too; – or just lower case; – Games Workshop use the letter ‘u’ in Latin, you may svbstitvte ‘v’ if yov wish; – it is YOUR inscription.  I am a great believer that they’re YOUR models to be painted as YOU see fit.  If the tech-marine / grot / grunt / ratling / whatever in the unit is not much of an artist then your models’ paint jobs won’t be either – it ain’t your fault!   (That’s the excuse I use anyway.) Suggestions, comments, corrections, donations – in English, please – to: Latin@s-and-j.co.uk ***  To make it easier of authors, and so for checking reasons, this list is currently sorted by: a) author contact made; b) permission to quote and citation details received; c) author *** *** This will be prettified and go live at the end of July 2002 to, well, here. ***   I have accumulated a few hundred Latin / English phrases suitable for use on Warhammer 40,000 figures, buildings, etc.  This will go on-line in the next few weeks (I am aiming for the end of July 2002) once I am happy with the translations and if the authors are happy with me publishing them. These are Latin phrases I consider particularly suitable for use in Warhammer 40,000. Please note, I do not know Latin myself.  I have merely trawled the ‘net to get these.  The majority of these have been requests for translations in the newsgroup alt.language.latin, either Latin to English or English to Latin.  While lurking in that newsgroup for the last few years I have been recording translations I thought suitable.  I had been lurking in the newsgroup alt.language.latin for some time when I realised many of the requests for translations were actually from Warhammer 40,000 players.   Also, the same requests were coming up time and time again.  Furthermore, I was seeing […]

unauthorised’s Warhammer 40k Ships and Vehicles | BattleFleet Gothic ( BFG ) | Space Engineers Hey everybody, check out a fusion of two of the most cool things ever.  Warhammer 40k Battle Fleet Gothic ( BFG ) and Space Engineers.  Now we can theoretically run around simulated kilometer long capital ships with semi realistic collision physics.  I just recently became hip to the game Space Engineers.  Since I’m into both Space Engineers and Warhammer 40k Battle Fleet Gothic ( BFG ) I just couldn’t resist.  Instead of reinventing the wheel, here are some excellent models to branch off of in the design process by unauthorised on Steam. Would be cool to run around in with Space Marine 40k Textures in Space Engineers :).
