Finally, it's here! I've taken the pictures, and am now going through the painstaking upload process. For now, to start off the topic, I'll post a little preview:

That's the whole fleet. More pictures to come within the next few hours!

Alright, here are the details (captions beneath each picture).

Image
The fleet's missile fighters. Each unit of those is actually TWO fighters carrying a missile between them. They are used to punch through armor and disable larger ships' weapons, engines, and other pertinent parts. Once the fighters disembark they're missiles, however, they become relatively useless; so they always make the first shot count. Names, from left to right: The Honor, Glory, Passion, and Riposte.

Image

Image

Image
A couple shots of the Vengeance Heavy Frigate. Armed with a massive Ioun Discharge Cannon (IDC), this ship's sole mission in a firefight is to punch massive holes through capital ships. It's basically the fleet's heavy artillery.

Image

Image
This is the Valor cargo vessel, designed to be the swiftest of the ships in the fleet, and most agile. It carries only light weapon batteries, and was not meant to engage in combat. It merely flies straight through combat and docks with a capital ship to provide needed supplies.

Image

Image

Image
This is a combat-converted Docking Drone. Relatively self-explanatory.

Image
This is a normal docking drone, without the guns attachments.

Image

Image
This is the Dawn of Radiance, the capital ship of this fleet. It forsakes what firepower it could have for improved speed and maneuverability, and uses this to the utmost advantage in combat.

Image
A view of the Dawn of Radiance from the front.

Image
... And the massive engine block at the back...

Image
And here are the normal fighters of the fleet.

Image

Image
BONUS! Some extra fighters I built just for the hell of it.

I apologize for the crappy appearance of some of the photos... they didn't turn out as well as I might have liked.

Fantabulous.

Often, literally, a pillow fight but may include similar situations like volleyball, particularly when wardrobe is skimpy and the action is bouncy.

the creations are really nice though.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

Thanks! These were some of the first times I had strayed from traditional Lego conformity and used some of the more "unorthodox" methods... the Vengeance, for example, is upside down :P

Your tiny ships inspire me. Reminds me of sins of a solar empire.

Beautiful. The artillery frigate was my favorite.
I know you didn't finish the Brikspace rules, but what did you have so far?
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Niceness.  job.

We didn't get terribly far, and it's still VERY broken... but we do have a Google page for it. Kidko and I still have a metric butt-ton of kinks to work out of the weapons and engine systems...
