Another Battlefleet Gothic update, this time with a Mechanicus ship. I've had this model for a very long time and it's been primed black for years but I've just recently painted it up. I painted it shortly after I completed the two Imperial cruisers and stuck with drybrushing and washes.
If I remember correctly it's modeled as a Mars Class Battlecruiser, appropriate, I suppose. I put a bit more detail into this one to make it more characterful. There's also a bit more contrast between components than with my Navy ships. The Mechanicus sigil on the sides of these ships is a great touch from GW. I came up with the name Voidfarer, as I did not want something that really made it sound too much like a warship. It's actually named after my extrasolar probe I made in Kerbal Space Program to escape the sun. A true explorator.
|More stripe markings on this one. They just add a nice bit of flair.|
|I added a cog-wheel pattern around the sigil on the front.|
|I also tried out some heat scoring on the engines. I do like how it looks though I am not truly sure whether or not to implement it on my Navy vessels.|
