Sketches – Elysian Mars-Class Battlecruiser

The Mars-Class Battlecruiser was the first new ship that the deWulf met in their continued war with the Elysians. Not seen during the initial attack on Dave's World, its first combat appearance was just before the 2nd Battle of Dave's World, when the deWulf fleet encountered a single Mars-Class fleeing the system. Captured by several deWulf… Continue reading Sketches – Elysian Mars-Class Battlecruiser

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 – 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 – Sintillan Beria Destroyer

  This was the first sketch for the Sintillan Navy, and this established the overall design concept for their spaceships. I'm actually really happy with how well it worked out overall, as I found that the whole two outriggers concept scaled up really nicely with larger hulls, and also offered a nice way to do… Continue reading Sketches – Sintillan Beria Destroyer

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
