A 2011 History Documentary hosted by Alisdair Simpson.
As a near-mythical figure known as one of the greatest commanders of the ancient world, what do we know about the real Hannibal? His name resonates throughout history - a mythical figure, one of the greatest commanders of the ancient world. But what of the man behind the legend? A man who handed Rome the key to the future by allowing them to learn his tactics and use them against him; and who was ultimately betrayed by his own people, spending his final years on the run from the Romans. Profile of the Carthaginian general, featuring contributions from historians and archaeologists on his campaign against Rome.
In the final part of this CAD tutorial, I put the finishing touches on the quadrireme hull, including the holes for the oars, the rowing deck, and the decorative mast near the stern. After that, I demonstrate the very simple process of chopping off the hull at the waterline to create a model suitable for tabletop wargaming. In total, this model took me under 2 hours to make, with hardly any of that process not documented in this tutorial.
In this video, I continue work on the Carthaginian quadrireme, beginning with finishing the shape of the stern, then proceeding to add the array of shields and the sponsons that hold the oars. This video shows the completion of the basic shape before making a mirror to complete the hull.
In this video, I start work on an old and fairly simple ship design, a Carthaginian quadrireme. This part of the lesson is particularly valuable for demonstrating the basic rendering techniques used for making a model ship hull.
