U.S Army, Marines, Navy, Air Force, and Law Enforcement officers have declared war on Earth against an alien race, while other countries have began their own defense, the United States has declared war against the aliens in their own soil.
This is the Cobra Destroyer from Games Workshops Battlefleet Gothic tabletop wargame.
The model was produced by a freind of mine called Mechmaster who gave me permission to use the model. (I will eventually build my own as I don't often like using other peoples models for actual release.
I used photoshop to produce the special effects for the scene though 3dsMax was used to produce the plasma bolt effects before I merged them onto the Cobra herself.
This image was produced for the Battlefleet Gothic modification for Dawn of War as a gift background for the "fans" though we haven't released the mod yet. (Lotsa work going on to remedy this)
Since about the time the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber was publicly acknowledged, the thick hilly terrain of Mid-Missouri has been the arena for frequently viewing the mysterious, flat, ominous spectres. They usually are seen alone or in pairs, but the A-10 is assigned to protect the Whiteman AFB fleet, and the smaller impressive birds are frequently seen as well. In this scene A-10s are escorting a couple B-2s, and though much smaller, due to perspective foreshortening, look about the same size.
This is the first Vue 9 Complete render I am somewhat satisfied with, after a long 117 hours of rendering due to all the ecopainted tree instances, and though I missed having most of the multipasses that I will someday have with Vue Infinite, I found more creative ways of using the depth pass. I had to rely more on PSP and Painter after rendering.
