Speed Modelling Challenge #3 - History of Warfare

Speed Modelling Challenge #3 - History of Warfare

Postby plot-paris » Fri Oct 31, 2008 5:34 pm

I think remus is on holiday. so I'll set up this one for him ;)

History of Warfare
anything that was used for war in the history of mankind. weapons, body armour, defensive structures...

-30 mins max modelling time
-unlimited prep time (thinking, sketching, browsing the internet etc. NO MODELLING!)
-I will ask people to judge the models on time taken to model, quality of the model and originality of the idea.
-Please try and keep your submission to one post in this topic, i.e. make a post and use it for all your prep work as well, just edit it each time you need to add stuff.
-Multiple entries are also allowed, keep it sensible though.

Final deadline: Friday, 14th of November

the English weather was horrible today - cold and wet - and the local cinema had technical problems. perfect opportunity to start with the third speed modelling challenge. and so it happens that I shall be the first to enter his model again.
I really used all of my time (drew the ground plane five seconds before the 30 minutes were up). sword handle, table top and table legs were drawn with the follow me tool :follow me: . I created one quarter of the blade with Soab Skin & Bubble and mirrored it, intersecting with a cylinder to get the chamfer in the blade's centre (barely visible). the map is an extruded bezier curve, transformed a bit with FFD.

the image is called 'Conquest of a Kingdom'




the render was done with Vue6

Heres the first attempt, as ever i wish i had more time, so much detail to add.





Its based very loosely on the french 320mm railway gun: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Fren ... 27627u.jpg

USS Akron
1932 Navy Airship
Not really a machine of war, used for training, weather, recon etc.

Great job David!

Ok, here is mine. There are tons of details I wanted to do but time ran out.

The Lebedenko (or Tsar) Tank from Russia.

Although I had thoughts about various weapons this seems to be the vision I have on "history of warfare".
The tanks are from the warehouse.

eric, that model is really stunning! 30 min... great stuff!

@solo: well, now that Obama is president (congratulations :berserk: ), there is nothing in the way of one of your beautyful models!

@modelhead: that is definitely a big part of war too. nice idea. did you use the drop script for that?

Thanks Plot, No, just the follow-along-path ruby for the crosses. Sandbox for the terrain.

2 more silly entries. . .one is the from the sea one. . the first challenge. Maybe it'll get more votes this time.

number 2 represents more of the future of Warfare. or the history of warfare a longtime ago in a galaxy far far away . . .

nice light saber, David. it definitely fits into the description of 'History of Warfare' - as you said, it is a long time ago...
I conclude from the colour of the blade, that it belonged to a female Jedi (or Sith) :D

At this point, I feel it's a must for me to join with a small tribute: here my Star Destroyer, also known as The-Sith-SUV.

Its geometry is not so simple as it looks at first glance and it required a massive use of the vector push-pull ruby to model it.
This destroyer is practically useless, since it lacks the engine exausts and no artillery is installed.
But the proportions are quite accurate.
