    This is the last of the Skaven ships requested by LizardmenRule!, the Warp Raider. I have to say, making the smoke green proved a little challenging, I hope it works out alright. Also, the exhuast at the back weren't in the original image but were requested to be put in, so I hope those are satisfactory as well.

    Here it is:
    Warp Raider

    More boats ahoy!:D

    I don't get what's wrong with the Skaven, they have the weirdest ships i've ever seen in a fantasy game and they don't look too functional.

    But, despite that, it's a good and accurate creation.

    Thanks a huge bunch Orthanc :thumbsup: it is great!

    @stormy: i would think being a rat-man would be hard enough, let alone on mutagenic warp-crack!

    Cool.
    I'd probably darken the green a bit before using it (warpstone is a darker green, in my mind, at least), an easy palette conversion, but all in all it's a very good ship!. :)

    Sorry to bump an old thread. I noticed that a box appears around the ship during the death flic (see image). Orthanc, can you fix this? It may be some kind of palette issue. Otherwise, great unit.

    Orthanc used pure magenta at least three times in the palette (probably due to the green death explosion), thus the cock up. :)
    Here's a fixed version (should work, haven't tested it in game):

    Looks good, although the death explosion could use a little refining...looks too perfect a sphere.

    Your flic works fine in FLCster, should be fine in-game.

    That's weird, looking at my own flics, even in slow motion, the box doesn't show at all for me. Anywho, thanks for fixing it, as for the sphere-explosions, I honestly don't know that I could do much to fix that, it would probably require making some randomizing calculations and formulas, which I'm not all that great at (Math=Orthanc Bane). Unfortunately I've got a little too much going right now to go back to this, currently, but I'll keep it in mind.

    mrtn - Thanks for the fix, works great in-game.
    Orthanc - I like the anim, and don't see any need to redo it. Why can't a random explosion result in a sphere? Just as much chance as that as anything else...
