NAUTILOID BATTLESHIP - Spelljammer
NAUTILOID BATTLESHIP
  The Mindflayers are amongst the most feared race in the Universe, eaters of living brains, psionic enslavers of worlds. Here, one of their ships, a nautiloid, sails for the barren moon of a rich, aquatic world, from where they plan to embark on a new campaign of enslavement.
On the deck, a crewman forlornly stares out in the hope for release from his pain and mental control. 30/08/2002

June, 2006. I've been rebuilding the nautiloid in Rhino3D, for both artistic renders, and to let Spelljammer fans have a good series of visual aids to help inspire their D&D games :) The original deckplans and beautiful external artwork did not match up in terms of scale, so I went with the deckplans for approximate scale, and added a lot more detail and tweaks:

Same happened with the Deathspider, though the Deathspider deckplans scale was a bit better. These are renders of the Nautiloid model without texturing to illustrate the design and layout.
