Sketches – Sintillan Construction Pods

Shipyard work is hard work, and in space it's not any easier. While plenty of work is done by shipyard cranes and fixed hardware, they by definition cannot reach everywhere, or are available in enough numbers. And crucially, there just aren't enough of them in the right places to do what needs to be done.… Continue reading Sketches – Sintillan Construction Pods

Sketches – Frontier Shipyard

As deWulf space expanded, it became clear that orbital industry had outgrown the Mittelspannung yards in orbit of Fenris. While they were expanding regularly, they were primarily a military installation, and so commercial work was often sidelined in order to make space for contracts issued by the deWulf Corporate Navy. What followed from this was… Continue reading Sketches – Frontier Shipyard

Sketches – Y-12 Yards

Every government has a few out of the way installations that do the quiet, secret work that is best done out of view. Evaluating captured equipment, building and testing prototypes, supporting black operations. For the deWulf, this is the Y-12 yards. Officially known as SchultzFlach Station, it was originally built as part of a corporate… Continue reading Sketches – Y-12 Yards

It's amazing what you can get done when you're stuck in a meeting! This sketch actually is skipping a bit of the queue; I did this one in the fall while on a long conference call, and I wanted to get it out sooner than later, so here it is. One note, technically I made… Continue reading Sketches – Fenris Local Space

Sketches – deWulf Mobile Heavy Shipyard

This design comes from expanding the idea of the Weaver-class SYM. It also lifts a couple of other design elements that exists from larger ships as well, namely the forward shuttle bay and larger quad engine mount. Unlike the Weaver, which has a single forward facing extendable gantry, this mobile heavy yard has a series… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Mobile Heavy Shipyard

Sketches – Sintilla Shipyard Details

As part of Scenario Book 1, I wanted to have some internal art in among the various scenarios. One part of it was the shipyard that the Sintillans were using to build more ships, and I didn't want it to be a completely undetailed set of shapes. One problem I do have when it comes… Continue reading Sketches – Sintilla Shipyard Details
