Dictator-class Imperial battlecruiser, Warhammer 40,000
My little on-and-off project from May is finally done.
5 kilometers from tip to tail, with hundreds of thousands of crew and workers, and with guns the size of buildings delivering enough firepower to lay waste to continents, cruisers are the workhorses of the Imperial Navy, designed for the total destruction of the enemies of Man.
Over 10 000 000 triangles, modeled and rendered in Blender. Inspired by the Star Wars designs of Ansel Hsiao/FractalSponge.

A useful list of linguistics games from Nathan Saunders, including IPA Bingo, IPA memory match games, and other linguistics games based on the gameplay of classic games like Uno and Battleship. Especially suited for playing with intro-level students in online intro linguistics or intro phonetics classes, but some might be playable with friends as well. 
Pairs well with these online rollable phonetic dice.

Video
24 May 1941, Battle of the Denmark Strait, color footage of the German battleship Bismarck firing at the British battlecruiser HMS Hood and battleship HMS Prince of Wales, as captured from the German heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen. 
Return fire from both warships can be seen splashing around the German warship, and by the end of the footage Prince of Wales can be seen steaming ahead of the remains of Hood, which exploded after a single hit from Bismarck detonated one of her magazines, sinking less than 10 minutes into the battle.

The Granite State, originally the USS New Hampshire, served for more than 60 years before its demise on the Hudson River Pier on May 23, 1921. The 2,633-ton ship caught fire while tied up on the 96th St. pier, creating a smoke plume that could be seen for miles. Remains of the burnt out ship were sold at auction at the end of that summer for $5,000.  It was estimated that $70,000 of salvageable material could be removed from the wreckage. Click to enlarge.

Armor plate from USS Texas (1892) at the Illinois state fair in Springfield, sometime between September 17 to 25, 1915.
Tumblr media
I have not been able to find out what happened to this armor plate after the fair. Most likely it was scrapped.
