eldar shadow cruiser

Craftworld Miruaun has a long history of working with (and occasionally repelling) Corsair fleets, so it made sense to me that some Corsair vessels would end up as permanent additions to the Miruanian navy. I made a few minor alterations to this Corsair Shadow Cruiser, adding a magnetised flying base and replacing the gun barrels.

date: 2019-present (work-in-progress)
components: 1x Battlefleet Gothic Eldar Shadow Cruiser, brass rod, Green Stuff, White Milliput, neodymium magnets, transparent flying base (60mm diameter)

2. A close-up of the prow gun batteries. I carefully cut away the original metal barrels and replaced them with short lengths of brass rod. This was done to allow the barrels to be elevated, rather than lying flat on the hull. This isn't possible (or practical) to replicate on the smaller ships, but on the cruisers it produces a nice effect and I think is worth the effort.

3. I added some brass rod to the command tower. These could be communication antennae or smaller towers. These extra details help to convey a sense of the scale of these enormous ships.
