Sketches – Magellan Class Exploratory Frigate

The Magellan is one of, if not THE oldest sketches I have. It actually predates the deWulf universe entirely, and was part of an abortive game design project from high school (much like most high school projects, I suppose!) In large part it was conceptually inspired from the TFN's Hun-cass survey cruisers, but with a… Continue reading Sketches – Magellan Class Exploratory Frigate

Sketches – deWulf Nose Detail Ideas

Pretty much what it sounds like, this was some early concept art on how the open jaw nose could be used on deWulf ships. Bottom left has the survey radar boom that initially inspired the idea (which may come back when capital survey sensors get rolled out). Upper left was playing with the idea of… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Nose Detail Ideas

Sketches – Watchman-class “Storozh” refit

A later design, following the amalgamation of the Sintillan state by the deWulf. This was my first experiment in trying to create a "melded" design that took various aesthetic concepts from both navies and forged them into something that had elements of both designs, but was clearly its own thing. Nominally a frigate, this refit… Continue reading Sketches – Watchman-class “Storozh” refit

Sketches – Terran Dominion Io-Class Cruiser

The Io-Class Cruiser was the one of the first things I ever laid down for what would eventually become the Terran Dominion. I knew that I wanted to have humanity in the universe somewhere, for a couple of reasons. Firstly because it's always more relevant to write about humans than aliens. Secondly because it also… Continue reading Sketches – Terran Dominion Io-Class Cruiser

Sketches – Elysian Main Battle Tank

Another vehicle that I sketched out while I was writing the battle of Finn's Massif on Dave's World. While the deWulf have a more classical slab-sided rhombus, Elysian tanks were meant to be much more of a smoothly shaped, refined design. The Elysian tank borrows a bit from hovercraft in that they have an armoured… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Main Battle Tank

Sketches – deWulf Nee Holland Assault Cruiser

The Nee Holland was a design that flowed out of the first two wars that the deWulf fought. In both of them, the final acts were planetary invasions, landing troops on hostile worlds and putting an end to armed resistance at the source. Both of these wars were waged with civilian ships carrying troops into… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Nee Holland Assault Cruiser
