New Hero Steampunk Airship

steampunk airship

Some elements of 3d kitbashing have gone on to create this new hero airship for Cogwheel Chronicles. As much as I might want to create everything from scratch, I just don’t have the time at the moment.

Still, I think it looks OK rendering in Unreal and looks pretty cool in action with flapping wings and spinning rotors.

The Lure of Airship Adventure

For me the concept of airships and adventure complement each other completely.

And it seems many movie makers agree, here are a few from movies across the decades:

The Hyperion (a bit worse for wear in this shot) from The Island at the Top of the World (Disney 1974)
Airship from The Mummy 2
Stardust Airship
Airship from The Last Crusade
Airships featured briefly in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Mr Hyde

Does a top hat make a retro Victorian Hulk? Not sure if Mr Hyde is destined for evil or  good within the Cogwheel Chronicles universe … he’s looking a bit green maybe?
