Iron Wind Metals wants some Cylon designs to add to their line of BSG ships. It doesn't pay, but you get credit for the design and a copy of the mini if they choose your design(s). Top and side views would be preferable and if you can manage bow and stern views, if they HAVE bow and sterns, that would be best to give the sculptor more to work with. Enter as many designs as you want. No time limit or anything like that and feel free to include any designs you may have submitted to the forum in the past. They are especially looking for support ships, like escorts, not new super-basestars or stuff like that. Try not to use other people's designs when making yours, simplifies the process of providing credit. Be creative!

How are these for unique?

The Sharkstar is a Cylon prototype design that tries to beat the Colonials at their own game by using Weapon Batteries to the hull giving the Shark a 360 degree firing arc. On top of this it has a Stealth mode where it's shiny heavy armour is literarily flipped over showing (or in this case not) a sleek darkened stealth armour.

The Sharkstar is designed to hunt Battlestars by hiding in dark areas of space or within asteroid fields then fire find its prey. When a target solution is made the Shark fires nukes using its gun batteries crippling or at least disabling or stunning the battlestar. It will then engage if the target is disabled if not it will continue stealthed until spotted by the enemy. If the enemy has it zeroed the Shark will call in Basestars or Y-Stars to engage the Battlestar.

You are thinking of a Shivan Comm node, are you?

WTF is a Shivan anything? Ares never even heard of whatzit? :?

Thanks Spoot, ( I think) :thumbsup :damnfunny

no I thought of it while playing with the Ravenstar Red-Spur Miniature...its a 12 pointed basestar....and I thought hell why have them radiating in a spoke pattern? add more radial arm/blades on every axis and it becomes a ball of blades...

and it shouldnt be a Basestar, for them it should be a Battleship...break the rules and give it KEW and Missiles and CIWS...maybe it'll carry some fighters but not make it a Carrier Missile Cruiser....

also a Cylon Boardingstar a Destroyer sized, specially reinforced and constructed ship for ramming and boarding...mine looks like a tapering thickened triangle... one of its three "bow points" smashes into your hull, and the boarding ramps open and their boarding parties storm aboard inside your ship...the Cylons penchant for boarding combat made me think of a better larger specialized platform for this sort of action and heavily armored to survive both the approach and run in on the target and the actual impact...I have 2 they work best in numbers and with support from fighters and heavy raiders...suicidal foolhardy it works lots better than using heavy raiders to board 1 BP at a time...

A Shivan is a hostile alien in the Freespace universe.

Yes a game series, Freespace 2 is well worth playing even if you have never even herd of the first 1. It can be downloaded for free if you dig around

Cylons need FF and DD class ships badly was my assessment when I began gaming this...in fact they should have had those before they had Basestars...not or at best semi-canon in either genre TOS or NBSG...

I use mostly smaller versions of the same shapes they already use, Bergstroms figures are smaller than Ravenstars so make perfect scaled down hulls for DD and FF and I just remove the fighters and re-stat with missiles on the new type Bio-hulls or if they are older metal construction they get some KEW and missiles...
since Ravenstar makes a larger version of everything thats more in scale with requirement for the ships we see in the show...the largest make CA or CL hulls also needed see my Ball of blades concept above...

I use the venerable Tanker as a Tanker (duh wow that was clever), transport, freighter, factory and mining ship, it does anything that support roles require, I have a smaller auxiliary I made out of various bits that is the lower end of this role...

I have some older round single small dish vessels I also use as first war DD, FF that are still in service...

Ressurrection ship needed call it a "Clone Ark",also a reserrection base is needed too.

would a double bitted battle axe head turned flat look too weird? 2 half circles with a connecting midhull section? thickened in the center and tapering down to thinner edges? (l=l) shaped

damn cursed with taste and style but no ability... :damnfunny

"You dont know how lucky you are boys"

whadda ya hear?
