Ship design WIP
Wednesday, February 6, 2008

This is a WIP design for the ship my players will have in an upcoming Serenity game I'll be running. It was a blockade runner during the war. I still need to add the extra engines to the bulb. It will have 4 engines added. And yes, it used heavily of Firefly parts, but was heavily modified. I'll have a deckplan and sideviews also.

It's cool looking, but if I may point something out, a blockade runner would want it's engine's enclosed and not easily disabled or shot off. I would imagine a more blocky design for that usage. This could make sense for another type of craft, but it seems less than appropriate for a blockade runner.

I'll have to disagree with that analysis. Blockade runners and smugglers throughout history have relied on lightly armored, overpowered craft for their work. The idea being to slide in slow, under the radar so to speak, but have the juice and maneuverability to hightail it if detected. Armoring over the extra engines would just add weight, robbing power and making her sluggish. You up-armor if you plan on getting into a slugging match, something a runner would much rather avoid.

I always wonder what an Independent Blockad Runner looked liked.

That's a pretty sound design you have there. I would love to see front or side views of this.

I would imagine it's smaller than Serenity.

Thanks.

Well, I'd inteded it to be quite a bit smaller but once I really started working on it it ended up only about 40 feet shorter... all on the front end.

I got really bored working on the lineart for the moment and decided to through on a few flat colors just to see... I think it's working out well.

This is a WIP design for the ship my players will have in an upcoming Serenity game I'll be running.

I'll have a deckplan and sideviews also.



The Phoenix - Deckplan: LVL 4
Level 4, Turret and upper exterior, of the Phoenix, my crew ship in our Serenity game.

I posted another, unfinished shot of the whole ship at once a while back, but I thought I'd give you a better view.

Yup, you're reading right... a 0-G Tetherball pole... Blame Buck... I do.

I hope to have exterior shots eventually



The Phoenix - Deckplan: LVL 3
Level 3, Living level, of the Phoenix, my crew ship in our Serenity game.

I posted another, unfinished shot of the whole ship at once a while back, but I thought I'd give you a better view.

Not really anything to say about this other than it was heavily modified from how the ship came to us, with a common dorm and mess.



The Phoenix - Deckplan: LVL 2
Level 2, Mid level, of the Phoenix, my crew ship in our Serenity game.

I posted another, unfinished shot of the whole ship at once a while back, but I thought I'd give you a better view.

Yes, you are seeing the Mach 5, you are not imagining it... That's Buckminsters Skiff... looong story. It's hanging from a crane from the cieling... only way I could think that we fit the skiff in the ship



The Phoenix - Deckplan: LVL 1
Level 1, ground level, of the Phoenix, my crew ship in our Serenity game.

I posted another, unfinished shot of the whole ship at once a while back, but I thought I'd give you a better view.

The ATV is my characters "mule"
