The Marquis
During their period of outreach, the Hexans delivered thousands of agents and artifacts to nearby galaxies, but the results were not at all what they had hoped. Cultures they encountered were much too primitive to be considered peers, so the Hexans adopted a policy of tolerance and noninterference toward them. At the same time, the Hexans determined that large regions of the galactic cluster were rich in resources and devoid of life. The Home Council approved plans for the construction of an advanced colonization and resource-gathering fleet anchored by 120 superscale carriers built around a diamond design. The Marquis-class vessels, as they came to be known, were constructed at a minimum of three locations during the golden age of Hexan shipbuilding, using materials and techniques that are not fully documented. Estimates put their tonnage at thirty times that of any other vessels of the period or since. They were large enough to house medium capital ships and hundreds of support craft. Their holds could be configured to store workers and colonists, raw materials or finished goods. Experts disagree about the number of vessels completed and whether any are in service today. Some 30 to 40 were destroyed near the Hexan home world during the opening hours of the Darkness Wars. Legends say the Hexans reconfigured some surviving ships, repurposing them for the war, and that because no two were adapted identically, each has come to have its own appearance and capabilities. Sightings of gargantuan, diamond-shaped ships are still reported, and in many instances, eyewitnesses describe them as outfitted with heavy armor and weapons batteries, supported by advanced warships and hundreds of fighters and strike craft.
About this creation






Brickworld 2013 was a blast and meet a lot of really cool guys! If you were not able to attend, I hung the Marquis by 50 pound weight fishing line from the PVC framing I created with the help of my dad. It gave it a cool effect that I was looking for. Plus the fact that I didn't want to make a stand for her.

























Thanks for looking everyone... As Always please leave pointers or feedback below. Stay tuned for more next year at Brickworld 2014. Planning on doing a Collaboration with one of our members that will stay under wraps, unless you can figure that on your own, hint hint...

This ship is really awesome! I could sit here and write a long text about all the cool things in this build, but lets just say the design is one of the best i've seen so far, the detailing is great and last but not least, i really love the colour sheming.

Quoting Mark Kelso Fantastic work, Peter! Really wish I could've seen this in person, but I'm glad you've shared it here online. Love the unusual vertical design and the way you've displayed it. (If you've seen my ships, you know I'm a fan of hanging them.) Brilliant job!
Thanks Mark! Always a pleasure to hear from the great shipbuilder yourself. Hope to see you next year at Brickworld as well. And please bring your Massive ship! Would love to see it completed.

Quoting Tim C Thank you Tim Always enjoy your comments. Glad you enjoy my side of the universe that I'm slowly trying to build through my imagination. More to come and continue building my friend. Love the new installment of your fleet as well.

Great package you've delivered here; the back-story, the schematics, cool colors, and of course one sweet ship! I dig the fact that it's one massive ship...it's just a neat thought (being a space nerd). Great work, man. - Matt

A great shape for a spacecraft and great to see a build on MOCpages that is obviuosly meant for deep space and never to land. The concept of a giant ship is great and the shape is like some form of sculpture. The simple, clean solution to making the display stand adds to the whole effect, with the ship hanging in space. Superb work.

That is VERY VERY impressive. I like this A LOT. The unique shape and overall style is very clever. The uniqueness (And backstory) has momentarily overridden my lack of love for microscale. Well done.

This a very impressive build! There are all kinds of neat designs/parts usages here. There's definitely many reasons that this hasn't gotten so much attention.

The most odd yet the best spaceship I have seen in a long time. The vertical shape makes it even more special and the use of antennas for details is very creative. I have maybe an idea on how You made the general shape. Really great model.

This summer seems to be showing a space tendancy. I hope it will continiue as it is going right now, and I may put in my effort as well. So much inspiring space lately...

Stunning... Breathtaking... Phenomenal... I cannot list enough adjectives to describe this behemoth. Incredibly unique shape and striking colour scheme, truly an impressive feat of LEGO engineering. I'll definitely be back to look at this again and again.

Well, Peter. I can't say enough about this SHIP, but I'll give it a shot. It is not only well-built, but definitely one of the most unique designs I have seen ever seen. I know I've mentioned it before, but what I keep coming back to every time I see it is that this originated as concept drawings that you did yourself. Yes, a replica, but a replica of your own design, and that may be the most impressive aspect of this build. The coloring is perfect. I especially like the splashes of trans-blue in there. I also like the high contrast of the white on black. Your use of the white antennas in such abundance and the details along the side is what draws my eye from a design standpoint. I will say though, it looks heavy and that fishing line makes me nervous every time I see it;) As I said before, I wish I could have been there this year to see it.

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Awesome! The WIP pictures were already mind-blowing, as you could get a hint of the size quite good. But, seeing this on display, hanging from this very well thought out framing structure is pure candy for the eye! Wish I could have been there to see it myself. ~Cheers
Thanks Marc! Everyone had great support at Brickworld. I'm glad I was able to make it this year. Also it is almost as tall as I am and I'm 5' 8". So it's 54 inches tall.

Stunning design! A beautiful way to think of a spacecraft disregarding aerodynamics and gravity. Reminds me of the artwork of John Berkey from Roy A. Gallant's book "Our Universe". Awesome vessel!

I have flashbacks to the Relic PC game "Homeworld" -- this is very well done!
