Akkadian and Assyrian Micro Space

Postby Natalya » Mon Jun 27, 2011 6:45 pm

Okay as you may know there will be a micro-space battle for this Head Separator battle. The Akkadians are going to try to knock out an Assyrian defense platform.

Here are the Akkadians:

Image

I don't know of any Akkadian ships so I just made some up. Here we have two bombers, three heavy gun boats, an attack frigate, a light carrier, and a destroyer.


Image

Gun Boats and Bombers.


Image

On the right is the attack frigate, left is the light carrier. It only holds two fighters (docked under where you can't see them) so I'm not sure carrier is the best name for it but whatever...


Image

And finally, the destroyer. This one has four turrets, a main cannon, and four heavy missiles that it can launch. They're going to be useful against the Assyrian space platform.

Speaking of which...


Image

Here are the defenders.


Image

First we have three Mercury class light frigates. They are slightly bigger than the Akkadian gun boats.


Image

Then there is a Venus class light destroyer on patrol in the area. Venus light destroyers are routinely used as patrol ships because of their speed and anti-fighter defenses -- perfect for catching smugglers who are the usual target for a border station's patrol.


Image

And finally, the station itself. It is small as far as defense platforms go, but it is on the Czech-Republikan border where not much action is expected. The parts like this:

Image

They are Eris gunboats docked to the station. The station also has four heavy cannons mounted towards the bottom to compliment the more visible gun turrets up top.

Awsome looking. I was trying to use that dome in a microscale battle for a while.

YES.

I love the station and the Akkadian ships.

Your Venus is probably the closest in terms of scale to my standard microship scale. Looks like it sustained some battle damage though...
Just one random act of violence can brighten your day. Especially if it involves explosives.

Nice work Natalya. I very much like the ship designs. Simple and clean.

Well done. :D

I knew the Assyrian microspace fleet would end up looking awsome. :)

I can see that your Venus is in much smaller scale than Warhead uses, but Warhead's fighters are quite a bit smaller. I like his scale for Venus but I like your scale for bombers/fighters. :)

Everyone's doing microspace now, and Natalya provides no exception to her record of building awesome shit.

there is only one akkadian microspace ship. it's called the juggernaut and it looks like this. (the idea being that the whole nation rides around in it when they go to war, and that many other smaller ships could fit inside of it)
I'd say ur ships look pretty reasonably close to what mini-ships off of here would look like though.

I see a potential opportunity. :twisted:

It seems that the Akkadian juggernaut is about the same size as a typical Brittanian cruiser. IF they are using even remotely the same scale, then you can imagine that one little minifig could be comfortably huddled in the space of one stud, and uncomfortably, two or three minifigs could occupy that space.

The whole Akkadian nation fits in there?

I'm thinking that people might be misinterpreting each others' scale here? Or maybe its just me reading too deeply into things. :P

Well we all know the Akkadians are over powered and need nerfing pronto.
