Having realised I haven't posted my completed takes on these ships in the completed works sections.

First up is the Jupiter Class Mk1 (Block 0 Hull), the initial design for what becomes the Jupiter class Battlestar such as the Galactica and her sister ships. By the Games lore only 4 Battlestars were completed to this Spec, The Jupiter, Galactica, Athena and the Demeter. Galactica is rebuild to the Production model Block 1 (mk2 in game) after serious damage throughout the campaign (its form it has in the show) and subsequently all other Jupiter's are rebuilt to the Block 1.

This is an Edit to Canis's Galactica art.



Next up is the Minerva type Assault Battlestar, a distant precursor to the much larger and later Mercury class Battlestar. Called a glass cannon in the game for its limited armour but superior firepower. Its a Smaller frame vessel then the Jupiter at about 150m shorter and vastly weaker in terms of hull and Armour strength.

This is my first full start to finish build so forgive me for not been 100% true to the game design but it was my first attempt.



More to come - WIP forum here http://www.wolfsshipyard.com/yards/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=6187

Just loading my update to the Minerva class here, I wasn't happy with the Original Head or the side view so i went back and redid the head. I may attempt the side view in the future but for now I'm just sticking to the tops.



Also now the Minerva's crest/patch. Thanks to 50Stone providing me the template and creating my Profile pic oh so many years ago now.

Good Work. Could you do the Adamant-class Frigate next. It is my go to when designing my fleets to I could support a Janus line backing Galactica and a pair of Atlas Carriers.

It's my next in the list after I complete the Artemis I'm working on over on my WIP thread.

Well its been a few months in the works and many delays due to C19 keeping me on my toes but I've finally finished the Artemis Class Battlestar.



Also I've attached a Comparison of the 3 Battlestar's, My edit to CanisD's Galactica to represent the Mk1 Jupiter and then the Minerva and Artemis.

Beautiful. Makes me wonder how the fleet would have done if a lone Artemis, used by the Colonial Space Police for customs enforcement and anti-piracy, survived and joined the fleet at Ragnar.
