Sketches – Elysian Hydra-Class Carrier

The Elysian Hydra-Class Carrier was the first major surprise that the deWulf met in combat with the Elysians, and they provided that surprise by destroying an entire Zitadelle-Class defensive station in the opening strike of the war. While combat small craft were technically in service, the combat dropships of the deWulf Army were at best capable of… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Hydra-Class Carrier

Sketches – Elysian Hades-Class Heavy Cruiser

One of, if not the first armed warships of the Elysian Imperial Fleet that the deWulf identified, the Hades-Class is both a more and less advanced design compared to the Director-Class ships that serve in the Corporate Navy. In contrast to their blocky, slab-sided ships, the Hades has smooth lines that flow from bow to stern, featuring… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Hades-Class Heavy Cruiser

Sketches – Radioactive Melons

The Globo Rebidus Radialis is one of the odder plants yet discovered by the deWulf, a plant that seems to have grown to take advantage of an abnormally high amount of Uranium-236 across most of a continent. While most plant life has proven to be uniquely radiation-tolerant (and thus the source of several breakthroughs in… Continue reading Sketches – Radioactive Melons

Sketches – Polymer Shrub

Nordhausen is at best barely habitable, and anyone who goes there isn't looking for an easy homestead. With a chlorine cycle in addition to the more common nitrogen and carbon cycles, it makes long term habitation and growth a challenging prospect. One of the reasons that Fenren go there even with the presence of an… Continue reading Sketches – Polymer Shrub

Sketches – Fenren Skyscrapers

When I was writing about SPM Rollen looking out on the skyline of the deWulf capital city of Lowell (Turn 111), I wondered a bit about what did the buildings in that skyline looked like? This thought sat in my head for a while, and I played around with a few different concepts and designs.… Continue reading Sketches – Fenren Skyscrapers

Sketches – Military Councils of Naril Space Ships

Narilei ships represent one of my first experiments to get away from the more "ISO Standard" ship design that permeates the deWulf and Krak ships. It's in a lot of ways still fairly derivative, but this was one of my earlier attempts to make something different. The big  "idea" is having the engines out on… Continue reading Sketches – Military Councils of Naril Space Ships

Sketches – deWulf Capital Turret

In the wake of the First Contact War, the X-Ray laser mount demonstrated that it was possible to develop heavier energy battery weapons, though ideally without the hazards that the X-Ray laser weapons system generated. Even so, Sintillan technology showed the way forward in many fields, such as better lasing cavities, more robust and larger… Continue reading Sketches – deWulf Capital Turret

Sketches – Bomb Pumped Laser Bouy

The RB-4 was the first defensive space mine deployed by the deWulf Navy. Initially researched at the tail end of the First Contact War, the mine never saw widespread use either during the First Contact War or the following Binary War. Imperial Autonetics, the original manufacturer, bet on it becoming a standard fixture of the… Continue reading Sketches – Bomb Pumped Laser Bouy

Sketches – Sintillan AA Tank

This was a weird hybrid design between the previous Sintillan heavy tank, along with the real like KV-2 (which provided the overall turret lines) and the Shilka, which provided the role as well as the quad barrels. There's actually a model of something that looks remarkably similar to this for some Weird War 2 game,… Continue reading Sketches – Sintillan AA Tank
