UNS 'Vengeance of Heaven' Lance Cruiser
Yes folks I finally acted on that urge to build Microspace and built myself a little cruiser.
About this creation
A light lance cruiser produced by Hadron Industries. It mounts one heavy lance battery and a lighter turbolaser battery on the underside. It has hyperspace capabilities and long range comms, as well as a long range scanner. The hangar bay can hold up to four shuttles.

And that's all the backstory you're getting. Sorry, I'm just not feeling like a writer today. I'm in more of a commentary mood than I am a storywriting mood. So let the commentating begin!

Let's all stare in wonder at its glory for a few more minutes now. Ah, doesn't it just warm your heart? You bet it does.


Mounted on the front is a big selection of sensory equipment. You know, fun things like comms arrays, radar, and a big jammer thingy. Why's it on the bow you ask? Because we just don't care anymore. I mean, what's the point in thinking through a design if those naval screwheads are just going to find a new way to break it? Forget'em, they can learn to deal with it.


Seeing as most of our design team just got through Homeworld 2, there was a distinctly hiigaran motif in the recent submissions. We decided to just go with it.


However we refused to skimp on thrust. We wanted this baby to move. She's got three engine nacelles and a massive powerplant. Eat your heart out, solo.


She's also got a tidy little hangar built into the side. She can hold up to four shuttles or six fighters, as was already mentioned. I'd also like to point out this is the first craft we've built to be able to accomodate shuttles. We're thrilled.


It's pretty ominous, but if someone would turn a bloody light on it wouldn't be too bad. There's a pair of heavy lasers on either side of the hangar entrance to keep out larger craft, but they probably won't be able to draw a bead on smaller ships. Like fighters.


The sides are filled with odd little extrusions and other such things to make it look more important than it is. Let's face it, if you're an enemy bomber pilot you're heading for the bridge, the hangar, and whatever looks important. This looks important, but does absolutely nothing. Are we smart or what?


Same over here only the modules in front of the bridge actually do something. They're the maintenance modules and can be detached at will to perform maintenance operations. Fun, right?


The bridge is attached to the side of the craft and has extra armor to protect it.


Look at that undercarriage. Isn't it magnificent? So many flashing lights, seemingly useful structures, and a laser turret. Life doesn't get better than this.


The underside closer to the nose. Note the underside of the comm arrays. They're red.


The top armor plating isn't very intersting, but it's got a lance battery. What more do you need? Oh, it also has a tiny little missile battery too, but that's more for dealing with other missiles.


Fourth System On Your Left:
I'm really happy with how this turned out. The fact that it was built for school is even better. I've been wanting to do something like this for a long, long time so I couldn't be happier with it.

And that's it. Thanks for stopping by, and leave me a comment-y thing if you have the chance!

Very interesting build. Very Homeworld-esque and the turrets are well done. Great work, Ribbits!

Quoting Minifig Maniac Gawd, how did I miss THIS!? All the virtues of greebling compacted into one single object. You, my good sir, are inspiring. I might have to try this out myself!
I'm not sure. Quite a few people have missed it though, to be fair ;) And thank you! Inspiring, eh? I believe I've reached my quota for the warm fuzzy feeling thing today.

Quoting 000 000 Built for school you said? I want to go to school there....
Yup. We had a project for Anatomy and Physiology involving cells. The majority of people did a city, but I did a space ship. It was pretty awesome.

Quoting Cody G Nice work, good to see such a good microscale ship, I haven't seen much in this style for a long time.
Thanks! I haven't seen the Homeworld style around much lately either. I hope it hasn't died off...

Quoting Pascal Schmidt Not bad, not bad. The top, she is too smooth methinks.
Thank you! In defense of the top portion, I feel it provides a nice contrast to the bottom. I'll see what I can do about maybe loading some more details in there though.
Quoting Falco .(CSM) not bad. the TUA could use something like this
TUA?
Quoting Dave Kaleta Very nice. You did a wonderful job mixing greebling and detailing with smooth areas. Well done.
Thanks Dave! I'm quite pleased with the results myself.
Quoting Waffles . All right, I'm rating this based on lols. First one. "...big selection of sensory equipment..." 1 lol. Second one. "...refused to skimp on thrust..." another lol. Third. "...Look at that undercarriage..." yet another lol. Fourth. "...comment-y thing..." Don't know why I lol'd at that, but I did. Therefore, we have four lol's. But where is the fifth, you say? That is accumulated from the other small lol's along the way. Hmm, that leaves you with 5 smileys! You have succeeded in life! =P Nice job on the microspace craft though, it looks nice. How old are you though, by the way? If you don't wish to answer, that's fine. I just always have thought you were an AFOL. ~Waff
At last, a rating system I can live with. And as for age, surprisingly enough I'm a TFOL.
