The Olympus-class Dreadnought was the InterGalactic Republic's answer to the Federation's new large-scale battleships, the Lancaster and Emperius-class. It carries no turrets, and no landing bay for fighters; this ship was built for intense ship-to-ship combat. It's the fastest cruiser in the galaxy with it's massive cruise engine.
-1 Heavy Ion Turbo-Cannon
-10 class-IV torpedo tubes
-5 class V torpedo tubes
-14 Anti-capital cannons
Normally I'm not a fan of mini's, which I consider a cop out way to build capital ships. But ever since I became interested in miniature tactical space wargaming I find myself looking at them more often. I especially like this one for its unusual combat design. Heavy forward cannon supplemented by broadside guns. Love the big engine too. :)
hey homeworld inspired !!!!!im not the only one!!! joy:) ...
it really looks like one of these big homeworld1 ships...so that s where the eos sensor array comes from!!!!!its not copied from my escort carrier, they are just both inspired from homeworld 2 ;) i was wondering...
anyway glad to find another person inspired by homeworld ...now there s an even better reason for you to check my page (if you have time)
I love the front, but not the back. I understand your concerns about the look, and I have some tips: Make it longer as a rectangle this will make it look more like a schip. put yellow ship or fighter bays at asymetrical places across your ship for filling up the ship. Defenitly go for turrets, (I suggest making them blue for controlled colour use) and replace the torpedolaunchers with greebles. Greebles are one of your strongpoints. take the sensors, briliant. Some asymetrical details would be good aswell as long as you keep the ship balanced.Your work is good. keep it up and keep improving this ship it woukd defenetly be worth many prases.
Why!? Why?! Why aren't you able to get these things in LEGO DD? haha, this is definitely a great build! I love the proportions, colors (and I don't even like red but it looks good here) and details. I'm not sure I understand which part you think is ugly...the curvature, ot the rod extensions? Either way, it's good to humble your say in your creations but I'm glad this one survived your creative editing. Definitely a keeper!
This is just amazing. Every little detail you add, the color scheme, all of it is just magnificent. I like how you add the specific details of the weaponry and other statistics of the Dreadnought. Keep up the good work and looking forward to seeing more in the future.
