Sometimes, ability to improvise is the main factor of survival. Arthanis building site was been under continuing attack since its beginning and altough enemies were not been able to destroy it, they ceased its production. After all, ships wuilding site was used as a feign and distraction to fix enemies attenction on false project to enable Atrtitians to buiild peacefully elsewhere. Highest Council decided to urgently move all Phantoms to new building site to crystalize new flagship in completely different location and this time ... Arthanis was reborn in safety completely. In real life, I finally discovered how to make ships bigger than LLD file capacity is. You build skeleton first, save it two times. One save will be used for internal part and other for the external together, file of this ship would be around 1,6 MB, whic is 2 times more than my maximum capacity :D After its birth, Arthanis IV rushed all way long to aid workers at its precessors work site. This ship is oficially called Arthanis IV because it served as Arthanis III replacement for so long. By the time, Atritan Fleet was divided for two Flagships. More weirdly, many Arthanis IV were produced to become the new backbone of Atritians Fleet, supplementing famous Siaron 2.2. wchich are another shielding lightships. Title Arthanis came from Artitian history. Northernmost Kingdom of Athritis is "Secret Athritis", which is paradoxly ruled by queen who is from House of Arthanis. They ruled all the Atritians once till House Siaron came. Folowers of Arthanis are the most advanced in magic and their moral code is very strict and hard to follow. Unlike in other nations, in their earliest history five Atritian Kingdoms were found not by nations, but Atritians divided themselves because of moral code. It caused much grief in dividing whole houses and families, but ensured peace in their future history and freedom of opinion.
About this creation
This ship is the very first ship from IV.generation ithat I was able to fully complete, altough I used some tricky way to do it. This is the ships framework with its internal organs. Ship is around 320 studs long by itself , alnd about 400 studs long with tentacles.



Best way to understand ships structure is to see its back. Whole ship is in SNOT technique. All build is in angled in 45 degrees, and since this it was difficult to build.



Morph note – internodia : Ship has typical Siaron structure with head , wings and tail and both thoraxes and pelvic area are triple. New feature is fact that they are connected to each other with another segment called internodium. To free some room in proper segments, i put hearts and livers in internodia to be better shown.



Tech note – building angled ships : all parts were built first in normal horisontal position, and then angled. Framework was built differently – after beilng angled i arranged all segments of ships body to form approximately horisontal row. Then i tried to link them with cross beams of constant lenght to make equal connections between segments.



Head detail showing brain



Morph note – angled advantages : Angling enables to make wings decreasing from trunk downwards as in birds when they fly. Using hinges would make whole framework very fragile.



Morph note - angled advanteges : Altough i tried to make whole ship horisontal, after joining all freamework parts ship was still pointing its head down. It looks like bird chasing its prey.



Morph note – tentacle arrays : I placed them on most prominous parts of shis segments. Reason is to make their origo clear. Also, at their origo i placed some organ structures to resemble poison glands. Due to ships complicated design, some tentacles had to be modified to pass them. Every tentacle has same sequence of segments, firstly great arch and secondly fadeouting fluctuaing units





Dorsal tentacles were meant to look like dragnos wing, since dragons are the most prominent beings in Atritian homeworld.





Generally, ships ventral parts were left without any plating. One of exaple how handicap can become estethic perticle. I imagined that energy flames ffrom ships organes culd use those holes to make splash damage on enemy squads.



In contrast to ventral parts, the dosrum is humpback-like and very heavily plated.



Two nice pictures showing ships proportions.





Ships skeletal parts. No plating is made to show their syntopy towards framwork.



An error is showed in this picture. Pelvic wings were been elongated in external part of ship.



As you can see, many vacant places were palced between visceral parts from two reasons – fisrtly, i had to try to make ships file less big and secondly, by concetrnating all particles on little place you add some structure to your work.



Nice picture showing internodial parts. Because hearts and livers were so complicated and ramificated in their structure, only gentle semi-arch plating could be apllied.



Wings are vacant in terms of viscera, it would be tehcnicaly complicated to make up someting so fat to fit in one bricks wide wings.



Organ cast with skeleton removed. In next part, I made some pics from eahc organ structure. I think its more clear than showing cast of all organs.





Skeleton with viscera and plating removed.



Internodial parts in thorax were enlarged, so they required some better and more extensive plating. I made them them from wing – like parts





External head plating. I borrowed some ideas from pervious Siaron model. Triple third eye with cannon eyebrows. And some unicorn design was added too.







Brain in detail. I made it composed from central brain and additional brain ganglia. Some parts have circulatory duties, some provide extra energy.



Basal brain parts are covered with some vascular „tissue“ , as pia mater in real brain.



Cast of circulatory tubes of brain. As in previous models, i made them from violet parts, nerve tissue is blue, and metabolic parts golden.





Central thoracic organ detail.



Thoracic unit skeleton. Horns in dorsal part were meant to look like wings.



Central pelvic organ detail.



Pelvis internodium scheme. Organ was meant to be accomodation for ships crew and since that i tired it to look like castle. Nerve tissue is arranged to roof-like particles, lymphatic tissue like hoardings on castle towers.





Thoracic internodium lateral organs. They are giant incenerators that serve as ships stomach.



Thoracic central iternodium. It comes from very old concept. It is shaped like little Siaron ship made exclusively from nerve tissue. However, its function is as rescue pod for crew , informations and Phantoms that is used to warp them out in case of mains ships explosion. Secondly, ships laterla organs provide enough material to enable little ships to recrystalize in new Siaron flagship.









Pelvic central organ, it is very well protecteds by ships framework.





Ships dorsal plating. They have function of Siaron „praying towers“.



Tail element plating. You can see massive cannon towers housed on lateral plating units



Wing elements detail. There are 2 version of it, one with dome to collect energies, others with more cannons to use it.





Some pics from complete ships to show interaction of all parts together. I was very pleased when i finally completed this ship, maybe because i had so many obstacles in its process. It took me 3 weeks to complete it., Thank you for your patience and for seeing this ship. Please rate it and comment if you will.

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah Our two Generals just found one of your Kings chained up and his hair sawed off... Was it the two Barbers? Untied him immediately... With our laser saws?
My Kings dont usually go to space, so I dont know who they actualy caught ... thay tried to shave me (C.E. here), but they had to retreat because I was very angry on them ...

Quoting JWG 258 As always, you do things with LDD that I have never seen before. The level of detail and thought that went into this is amazing.
Thank you, JWG :D It means much to hear such compliment from you :D I am trying to put together my entry for MOX Prize, so I hope it will be good :D

I'll also have you know that although my ship is built for exploration, It'll be ARMED TO THE TEETH. :)

I'll have you know, Benjamin, that my DFE is coming! I have to get yet, MORE LEGO PARTS from Ebay.
  November 13, 2013
I feel that CC needs to unveil his DFE first to give a fair contest perhaps... Your thoughts? And you possibly would like me to tell the name of my spaceship before... :]

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah Ok, sorry. It is just a huge spaceship... I have been working on this big craft for weeks! Now, Commander Cold is my best friend as well! I partially say that because my spaceship is getting closer to finished and the DFE is not :(
I am very looking forward to see it :D

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah I am also not sure if it is Blacktron... I have made so many adjustments to it, that my current version could eat the DEEP FREEZE EXPLORER!!!
Hello, Ben :D I suggest you to choose some brighter background to make dark design shine. Also, try to make pics from more angles as well as close pics from details. And, try not to eat each others ships with CC, because I like you both and dont wanna lose neither you and your ships :D

Quoting Benhamin Eukatah Hello Alliance... There are more spacecraft Coming. :) you must see them or your ships might be...
I will see them, dont worry ... and you dont need to threaten my ships ... they are very hard to be traced , as they operate in very distant sectors of space :D But I will glad if Kyle, Jared or even Kate come to some of my ships and have a chat there. You are most welcome :D

Quoting Mike Johnson Your designs are quite unique and meticulously thought out. Here's my question. Can you tie them into the GAIA storyline in some way?Parrington (our Admin) has created quite a storyline here and we try to stick to it with our builds for GAIA as well. Feel free to check out the builds here for any info or ideas and please ask the others here for input.
Thank you very much, Mike :D Yes, it could be great to make some creations that would be fit into storyline ... can you tell me how i get info about GAIA? Anyway, I used to incorporate many of real sci - fi serials in my fantasy world, so it would not be problem :D Would it be good if I made my Alliance to meet GAIA folks? By the way, I have known your work before and I was and still am very impressed :D

Thank you both, guys for feedback. It motivates me to continue with my work. Ii was to my great relief that i was able to develop this model into this stage. It is really difficult to build Siarons. Approximately, ships is 400 studs long and contains about 35000 parts, so it would be impossible to buy all parts needed. I was very glad when i discovered LDD, because in my country (Slovakia) is impossible to get such specialized bricks in those amounts. Again, thank you :D
  September 24, 2013
it looks fantastic! a bit like the star trek TNG s crystalline entity, or, a micro city in space like Dark city! have you asked how much it d cost if you where to order the parts? I did some heavy ldd models long ago, and was always surprised at how much it would have cost to realise them.

You, sir, are insane. Your models are the biggest in LDD, and, although the parts repeat a lot, they look incredible. I could try rendering one, but my computer would probably run out of Ram... anyway, I ongratulate you for both shocking and pleasantly stunning me :D
