I like your ideas for these ships, the battleships most of all, the nose is my favourite bit. The Escorts remind me of Necron Warbarques but beleive me that's not a bad thing.

Now you need an enemy fleet to do battle with.


You would think these would be fairly cheap - but LDD roughly doubles the price of everything you build, which is a bitch, and I distrust bricklink - I've never been able to put my finger on why.

I'll probably hit "Pick a brick" with a shopping list and see how many I can get . . . but It'll be a while until my next student loan is through, and I have the family/other commitments to look after.

As for facing an enemy fleet, I guess I'm stuck to forum battles - either with someone else hosting or LDD . . . until such point as I have monies to buy bulk legos.

Oh yeah - and something else after earlier.

- SYCTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- CAPITOL SHIP CLASS - SUPER HEAVY BATTLESHIP -

- EMPEROR CLASS SUPER HEAVY BATTLESHIP -

Only five of these ships exist throughout the entire Scythian empire, and they represent the pinnacle of Scythian ship engineering. Based heavily off of the Monarch battleship hull, but with an antimatter generator well over three times the size, with an equal jump in power generation. Throughout the ship, multiple additional hull braces where installed and then considerable resources where poured into widening the rear half of the ship - and four additional quad laser turrets where mounted - doubling the original vessels capability in combat.

Image

On top of this, the armour of the Emperor has been thickened through the additional hull bracing, bringing the total armour from 7 metres to 10 metres, adding additional ablative, ballistic and kinetic gel layers to the new hull armour. On top of this, an additional (but redundant) shield generator has been installed, projecting a secondary shield just a few metres behind the first.

Image

Last but not least, the original compliment of turreted heavy lasers has been doubled - making these vessels a monsterous powerhouse in the battlefield. These vessels share the same "Kill zones" as their Monarch class ancestors.

The five "Emperor" Class vessels in service are as follows -

"The Fist Of Scythia" Stationed at the Scythian homeworld. (The centre of the Scythian empire)
"Mantorok" Stationed at Rigel Kentaurus shipyards. (The sector command for the Scythian North rim worlds)
"Merciless" Stationed at Waypoint sector command. (The sector command for the Scythian East rim worlds)
"Zelotath" Stationed at Mousetrap shipyards. (The sector command for the Scythian South rim worlds)
"Relentless" Stationed at Cerberus sector command. (The sector command for the Scythian East rim worlds)

Plans are in motion for an additional two Emperor class ships to be produced, for two mobile fleets to patrol the Scythian borders - however, the funding has since been diverted into research projects into new destroyer class vessels and more power efficient antimatter generators.


As always, Comments and criticism is much appreciated! :D

"Concentrate firepower."

COR I hate it when they say that. It usually means my task fleet of X-Wings is going to be ripped apart.

Great stuff Scyth. Brilliant design on the killzones.

Hehehe, I gotta say the whole idea has slowly evolved in my head from my early days of nerdery - where my ideas of space combat and space craft where just built around single, massive guns - and fights where 2-d on the inside-back page of my school books.

Since I was introduced to battlestar galactica and macross frontier - the whole idea of space combat turned into more of a fluid idea - like crossing an AA-12 combat shotgun with a higgs boson particle - you just end up with explosions everywhere and clusterfuck spread all over your sandwiches (it's also good on toast! :twisted: )

Although - the whole idea of kill zones for me was lifted directly out of battlestar galactica - anyone who gets within the topside firing arc of that fucker is mincemeat - an idea that appeals to my lust for destruction muchly! :D

I'd uhhh . . . like to see how I could ninja a post I made 4 hours ago! XD But still - I never like to use the Executor as a comparison for large scale ships - As you never actually got to see it in battle, in all of its appearances it never fired once as far as I can remember.

I usually base ship comparisons off of the homeworld series, battlestar galactica or babylon 5 - as I see them being the closest possible "analouges" to interstellar combat - and don't even mention star trek to me, those pussys wouldn't know a fight if it came along and bit them in the arse with a fucking nova bomb . . . "Federation battlecruiser" my arse . . . that things a goddamn child's toy!

. . . but, back to what I was meant to do with this post - a size/armament comparison between the Monarch and the Emperor - for shits and giggles! :twisted:

- SYCTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- HEAVY GUNBOAT CLASS -

- DIAMOND BLACK CLASS HEAVY GUNBOAT -

Image

Image

The Diamond Black is a four man heavy gunboat, designed to follow the example set by the Assyrian empire a short time ago. Its crew consists of one pilot/captain, two gunners for the point mounted laser cannons, and an engineer/missile officer who maintains the engine systems, and mans the launch system for the twin super-heavy anti-matter missiles mounted on the top of the vessel.

Image

The crew door while open, once the door is sealed - the only way out of the ship again is to either dock with the gunboat must either return to its home vessel or make a crash landing.

Image

A cut away of the inside of the ship - as with all Scythian ships, its fairly spartan in its design (militaristic with no "frills" not the master-CHEF).

Image

A cut away of the front half of the ship - including the pilots control center/sensor array screens - and one of the two gunner stations for operating the point mounted laser cannons.

The ship itself (not including sensor antenna) is 34 studs long - with the antenna - it is 42 studs and the missiles are detachable for game terms - and are a whopping 18 studs long for their anti-matter payload which is designed to rip apart vessels several calibres higher than itself - but they are incredibly vulnerable, and if hit are guaranteed to go up with a bang!

As always - comments and criticism would be much appreciated! :D

- SCYTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- UPGRADE LOGS TO 'CARNIVORE' CLASS DROPSHIP AND "MANTICORE" CLASS LIGHT RECON -

Over the years, very little Scythian equipment tends to get upgraded - however, recent technological breakthroughs have allowed the use of nuclear turbine engines on a much smaller scale than years past, which in turn has allowed the upgrades of the ageing Scythian C-88 "Carnivore" and the "Manticore" light recon craft.

These upgrades include the use of lighter, stronger titanium alloys in the hull construction, more advanced power, and power distribution systems - and in the case of the Carnivore, additional "Dummy fire" weapon systems.

Image

The original C-88 alongside the newer C-89, note the larger engine systems - capable of almost a third additional power distribution throughout the craft, and almost a quarter extra thrust.

Also, make note of the wing-mounted dumb-fire missile pods, which can be equipped with Smoke, Chaff, EM or gas missiles to aid troops in hostile landing situations.

Image

Image

The Manticore has also been given the engine system upgrades - which on a smaller chassis has almost doubled the crafts effective high-speed, making it a true beast of a mobile weapons platform - however, its small size unfortunately impedes the addition of extra weapon systems - further research is still in progress to see how to alleviate these design issues.

(On another note - gotta love the new atlantis pieces in LDD - A future ground vehicle is in the works - and ACTUAL LEGO MODELS are inbound! wooterage! :D )

- CEBERUS RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT CENTRE -

- SCYTHIAN INFANTRY BASED ARMOUR SYSTEMS -

As the rest of the galaxy advances, so much the Scythian's - and in response to the alarming number of power suit and battle armour systems that have been rapidly multiplying throughout the armies of the universe - the Scythian Emperor himself sanctioned the development of the "Scythian Infantry Based Armour Systems" or SIBAS for short to create new battlefield solutions to the rapid mechanisation of the battlefield.

The newest developments towards this end, are the standard "Scythian Power Armour Systems" or SPARS. The SPARS suit is powered by an anti-matter pinching system and covered in thick titanium plating, its designed to enhance the speed and reactions of the wearer, and provide them with greatly enhanced battlefield staying capacity.

ImageImageImage

As you can see, it can handle all standard infantry weapons, and provide them with power from its anti-matter pinching system.

Image

On top of this, there is the Scythian SK-28 automated battlle droid, armed with 3 heavy lasers, it is designed to support infantry in the field by providing continuous heavy fire power.

Image

Image

. . . andd the group shot here, more is coming - I just don't have the time to add them to this post - so comments and critisms would be much appreciated!

Yes Mr Head - I have been busy, I have also been recently inspired by your micro-space shenanigans in ZZD - which has lead me to the creation of a new micro-space beasty.

- SYCTHIAN RIGEL KENTAURUS MILITARY CATALOUGES -

- CAPITOL SHIP CLASS - SUPER HEAVY CARRIER -

- EMPRESS CLASS SUPER HEAVY CARRIER -

Image
Image

If the Emperor class is the ruler of the Scythian fleets, the Empress is its mistress. Only one of these Goliath ships exist within the entire Scythian empire - acting as the mobile command centre to the entire Scythian armed forces and as the capitol ship of the very emperor himself, it is the single most important naval asset to the entire empire. While poorly armed for a super-capitol class, it is equipped with 5 shield generators to create an impenetrable defensive shield, and 3 additional redundant generators for use in combat in case anything even gets close to damaging the mighty vessel. It can house, launch and re-arm anywhere in the region of 700 Katana class fighters in a combat situation, as well as housing over 300 C-89 Carnivore class dropships, as well as several hundred more support craft - it can act as an entire carrier wing on its own without any additional support.

Image
Image

If crew positions aboard an Emperor class ship are rare, being taken aboard the Empress is not a volenteer billet, you have to be invited into the crew (after numerous security tests of loyalty, courage - and undying devotion to the empire) by the emperor himself - and in its time within the fleet, not once has such a prestigious position ever been turned down.

Which means that when this beast goes down, some of the best and brightest go down with her. Kinda like the Battle of Yavin.

Excellent work, as usual, Scythe.

-- INCOMING TRANSMISSION --

-- SECURITY LEVEL ALPHA-RED-ONE REQUIRED --

--

--

--

-- SECURITY DNA/RNA/BIO SIGNATURES CONFIRMED --

-- BRAINWAVE ANALYSIS CONFIRMED --

-- WELCOME COMMANDER -- ACCESS TO SCYTHIA OFFICE OF NAVAL INTELLIGENCE GRANTED --


As of four Sycthian hours ago - The Empress, Fist of Scythia 6 Monarch class battleships and over a hundred cruiser, destroyer and frigate class vessels mobilised from Scythia under the Emperors direct command.

No indication or reasoning for this massive mobilisation of forces has been given, nor has the Office of Naval Intelligence been informed in any way, shape or form to this sudden departure. Their current destination is unknown.

It can only be assumed at this point in time that -

- The Emperor himself ordered this mobilisation, either as some form of assault force, or his own personal gaurd - to some incoming threat.
- The Emperor was informed of some kind of catastrophe by the admirals of Fleet Command, and his evacuation was kept a complete secret until the last moment of preparation.
- The Emperor has been kidnapped, and this mobilization is some form of military coup.

Until any of these scenarios can be confirmed, or any additional intelligence gained, this mobilization is to be kept a complete secret - The Emperor is currently suffering from dire illness, and cannot leave the palace in any way shape or form. As from this moment, the Scythian empire is under the direct jurisdiction of the Office of Naval Intelligence, under the guise of the Emperor until his return.
