I know this is the Defender thread, but I feel the need to ask. Are there any more Guardian variants/updates in the works? It seems the Defender is getting alot more love.


That is still up in the air. I have room in my timeline for a FCW Guardian, a Valkyrie-style Guardian, and maybe a Fenris-style Guardian. With a Guardian based Strikestar also could be a possibility.

However, I don't want every since design to have Mark I, Mark II, Mark III, etc. Right now the following have multiple "member"

Cheetah Class Light Cruiser: 4
Tiger Class Destroyer: 4
Tiger Class Gunstar: 5
Tiger Class Strikestar: 5
Hyperion Bay Class Heavy Cruiser: 3
Sabre Class Gunstar: 4
Apollo Class Corvette: 3
Titan Class Gunstar: 6
Titan Class Strikestar: 2

Now, with me and CanisD have discuss the option of doing updated post-war version of the Defender and Protector. I don't know if the Guardian will be left out in the cold.

Beside, Kamikazi, do anyone want to see more Guardian variants/updates?

It will also need to be something, me and CanisD discuss over e-mail.

It my view that the Defender is getting more "love" because it was used the in series compared to the Guardian which is a Fan design.

I also have to admit to a preference for the Galactica style of design, with or without armor, but definitely without the forest of guns effect. And while its not solely true, I see the Defender and Guardian as being a sort of pseudo canon pair of designs, and a few others as well, such as the various units from Battlespoo, such as their Ranger, Guardian, Protector, Defender, Gunstar and Assaultstar designs.

Over time CanisD and a short list of others have tackled most of these designs, including the majority of the above, though I don't recall any of them trying to take on the asymmetrical Assaultstar off the top of my head.

These are all really sweet gentlemen, keep at it, as we greatly appreciate your combined efforts!

BTW, what the hell is with that site now? It keeps redirecting me to the home page of a circle of related web pages instead of allowing me to wander around Battlespoo?! I get this from Kitusne's Palladium page too, now tha ti think of it?

Using Firefox, I right click "This Frame>Show Only This Frame" to get the actual page and not the web ring crap.

That may help, thanx. I tried to go to the page to look around (I do that a lot, I really like his designs), but I kept getting hijacked back to that damn web ring!

BTW (*looks to the sides sort of shifty like*) did the asymmetrical Assaultstar ever actually get made chief?

EDIT: Check this out!!!

Nope. There are still several Battlespoo designs that haven't been done yet.
