Sketches – Sintillan Craft

As part of my initial sketches that followed along with the Rassler and Stuka aircraft for the deWulf, the Sintillans got some attention as well. I honestly can't remember what gave me the inspiration for either one of these ships, though the Partizan gunship on the left has a few common design cues from the… Continue reading Sketches – Sintillan Craft

Sketches – deWulf Stuka Attack Fighter

I think this was the first non-spaceship I sketched out for the deWulf universe. It's inspirations are pretty clear, as the name attests. It's dated far back enough that it's hearkening to when the deWulf were a lot more of a "Germans in space" thing than they are now, and I confess the name is… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Stuka Attack Fighter

Sketches – deWulf Rassler Fighter

Another early sketch of mine, this one was part of the initial First Contact war that had deWulf and Sintillan forces fighting over a deWulf Colony. Given the state of technology, I imagined something akin to Battletech Aerofighters as the kind of combat aircraft that would be in service. A bit bigger, heavier, and without… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Rassler Fighter

Sketches – Fenris Local Space

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 light cruiser concepts

I'll be honest, it took me a while to find a light cruiser hull that I was happy with for the deWulf. Heavy cruisers were easy enough, they basically had bulked up destroyer lines. Even larger hulls had the Elder God concept to build on (as shaky as it was), but the light cruiser always… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf light cruiser concepts

Sketches – deWulf Hauptmann Class Destroyer

Another one of the initial design sketches for deWulf ships, this one helped work out a lot of the more specific concepts on both the deWulf open jaw nose. It also spent a bit more time looking at the nose in a few different ways to apply some detail work like where the hull number… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Hauptmann Class Destroyer

Sketches – deWulf Director Class Cruiser

A later sketch of mine, this one expanded a lot on the concepts that earlier hulls like the Slingshot and Elder God did. The main additions to the basic hullform are the larger wings on either side of a much-enlarged main hull. She also maintains the same hull superstructure as smaller designs. This was still… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Director Class Cruiser

Sketches – deWulf Zweireiner Class Freighter

The genesis for pretty much all of the freighter designs I've done, the deWulf Zwei is the standard freighter design used by the deWulf since they reached spaceflight. There isn't a lot to really say about this design concept overall. She dispenses with the open jaw design that is inherent with most deWulf ships (pretty… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Zweireiner Class Freighter

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
