The computer game Battlefleet Gothic: Armada II features the "Phoenix Ship" - a class of vessel that bears a resemblance to the model for Prince Yriel's flagship, The Flame of Asuryan. I decided to convert one of those models to more closely match the Phoenix Ship as it is depicted in the game, since I don't plan to include vessels from Craftworld Iyanden (or Yriel's Eldritch Raiders) in my collection.

date: 2020 - present (work-in-progress)
components: 1x Battlefleet Gothic Eldar Flame of Asuryan, brass rod, Green Stuff, neodymium magnets, transparent flying base (60mm diameter)

1. This is the Phoenix Ship as depicted in the game. It is very similar to Yriel's flagship; the key differences are the downward orientation of the outrigger solar sails and an additional ventral solar sail. There are also additional tower structures amidships and two lances at the prow rather than one.

3. The main solar sail - I have pinned it in two places to provide a secure connection to the main hull. Some Green Stuff work was needed to fix some mould imperfections.

4. One of the two outrigger solar sails - I had to cut it in two places, rotate the solar sail through 180° and reassemble the component pieces using pins and Green Stuff.

7. A WIP shot of the underside. Each outrigger is connected to the main hull with a pair of lengths of brass rod. Green Stuff was used to make the pylons solid.
