ok, thanks for the idea, Pierce2!

here's the latest addition to the Confederation Navy, the Reliant Class Frigate. since there is no usable reference of any canon WC1 frigate, the Reliant is an original design, originally forged in lego some ~12 years ago.

it is equppied with two torpedo launchers, two laser turrets and four mass driver turrets. the reliant is not really a combat ship, though it can stand its ground, its more suited for recon

mesh and texutres are by me

here are some more pics:

this is a good look at the confederation light cruiser, the missouri class. like the reliant, its uncanon and was originally made from lego bricks. it is armed with two heavy neutron turrets, several torpedo launchers and laser turrets. it only has two assault shuttles and two point defense lasers, though, so keep fighter support close by!

Image

here you can see the reliant in action, firing its mass drivers. those cannons don't have much punch(like neutron turrets have) but they have a high firing speed that will wear down even stronges phase shields...eventually

here's a WIP of the confed's Venture class corvette:

it is, as of yet, untextured, and the turrets on the wings are missing, they will only be added after skinning is done

Image

btw, the venture hasn't hit the 2000 polies yet. you thing the armor plates on the "neck"... should i texture or model them?

I think it depends on how you're doing that sort of thing on other ships... yeah, you've got the polies to burn this time, but what if you don't the next time? IMO, consistency is a good thing... :)

Don't forget we now have a far better attachment feature than we did with UBB. Check the additional options below the main "Reply to Thread" box to attach images/files/whatever :)

Well, it's done now. the laser turrets on the wings will only show ingame, but since the model viewer is back on strike, here are some renders:

edit: 39 kb??? that's not even enough for a thumbnail!!!

ok, here are some pics of the TCS_Chestertown, the new venture corvette. this tiny ship packs a lot of punch, but kilrathi neutron cannons will make short work of it
