The body of the ship is fab but you're right the tail isn't all that good. I wondered if it would be better if the tail was lying horizontal and fixed on by SNOT (Studs not on top). Just an idea.

I also think that Pirates would use any types of ships they could. Deep space passenger-liners would be choice IMO.

As for weapons to fight the Pirate menace. Have you ever heard of a Q-ship? I like to think that Q-ships would be militarised freighters with hidden weapons seeded in convoys to ambush predatory raiders.

yes, I agree. the overall look of the ship is great, but I would suggest, like Warhead, trying to flip the white piece on the end, so it has more of a gradual slant upwards. that might help to make the back fit in more with the front. Anyway, criticism aside, I love the look of it, the colors, the stark contrast to the Brittanian ships, it's all wonderful. I await an update soon :D

Just replace the white part with bricks and put a transparent piece in the middle to make it look like it's the bridge of the ship and you'll be fine, because it does look marvelous.

I did try building different tail shapes with bricks last night, but didn't manage to get it right so I just plopped the white tail fin on as a placeholder. The bridge idea is a good one and I'll have an experiment with that; - I may keep the skull though. The thought did come to me this morning that this could be a slaver ship from the Negaverse just to make it really sinister.

With it being so long and low I did mess about with horizontal fins, but I didn't have much to choose from and I couldn't get it to look right. I've got fins coming in a Bricklink order, but they won't be here until later in the week. I must get more transparent bricks too (makes note).

The Q-ship idea is a good one and would give me an excuse for some great steampunk ship models. I want to build a tea clipper (fast freighter for the tea trade) and a tramp steamer type freighter to give the pirates something to try and capture. An old superannuated deep space passenger liner converted to become a pirate vessel would be a lot of fun to build too.

Something tells me that I'm going to need to build a gaming table just for space battles (and perhaps naval battles too).

It's an interesting contrast between Warhead's designs and yours. Maybe these ships are older vessels while Warhead's are the equivalent of WWI - era British ships?

The White Sector is the back end of nowhere with regards to the Britannian League and everything old and nearly worn out seems to find its way there. Warhead's ships were/are the pride of the fleet which means that they are gleaming and relatively modern (relatively speaking) compared with ancient vessels like 'Vulcan' and 'Pegasus'.

I was so bold as to draw up a map to show the territory which the White Sector occupies and its near neighbours.

:shock: My word! Even though I'm loath to put this sort of stuff on display as it raises so many questions and irregularities, this is a very good map and wonderfully done. I'll be wanting to include it in the Britannian page of the Wiki... when I get around to making one.

Just remember guys, The Britannian League is also situated near the Core controlling all the major trade routs. This is White Sector in the far flung rim. I guess Yellow Sector is somewhere near the Empire of the Sun.

Yes I thought the central and most important Britannic League worlds would be at the core so that's why I thought I'd have the White Sector right out on the rim so it would be on the fringe of the galaxy near some very doubtful outlaw colony planets as well the colonial sectors belonging to other European and Asian nations.
I could draw in a suggested Yellow Sector and Central Core Sector on the map if you like and offer it up for feedback and criticism.

I'm more than happy to stand back and let you carry on, you know what you're about and I'd love to see the end result. Hell, I'd even be happy if you want to create the Britannian Wiki Page too.

This only throws more thoughts into the fray for me and the currently "Unofficial" Britanian/Scythian war that has been fuming away in the background - I may need to LDD up some stuff . . . :twisted:

Wouldn't it be awful if Her Undying Majesty ever got ahold of evidence her new allies were behind the whole "Scythia Incident" in the first place?

"Communique from Sister Stella Maris, Admiral of the White to High Lord Cromwell, Grand Admiral:
We join our prayers with yours Lord Admiral and we trust that the sun shall never set upon the Britannic League so long as we keep our nerve and not falter in the face of the wrath of lesser men.


I completed the Alien Slaver Ship (possibly from the Negaverse) tonight and I'm pleased with the final result.

If I have a evil slaver ship I'm going to need something for them to attack in order to capture themselves some slaves so I put together a posh cruise liner that plainly doesn't call anywhere in the White Sector a home port......
Image

As you can guess it will be the White Sector Naval Fleet that will have to rescue the silly decadent fools which will leave White Admiral Sister Stella Maris with a hard decision to make as to who are the greater sinners; - the slavers or the cruise ship passengers. :wink:
