Sobani Battleship

More compact in design than other Sobani Ships, this new generation of war vessels focuses on their primary role: delivering pain to the enemies of the Fleet.

 

This new Batlleship design features 8 capital torpedo launchers for assault on stationnary targets, bombardment, and capital ship killing. ITs targeting systems are so precise that you could hit a moth in the eye. However torpedoes themselves and their simple propulsion systems makes this electronics system frenzy a bit useless.

 

 

This build features a bit of everything: modulex, duplo , fabuland and regular system bricks... IT was triggered mostly by the sight of Red Spacecat's Feros Tanker www.flickr.com/photos/redspacecat/6088401517/in/contacts/

And by Shannon's recent red and white creations: www.flickr.com/photos/10104652@N06/6091086757/in/pool-122...

 

Pictures are a bit experimental. I need to learn how to use my camera better.

    Thanks a lot everyone!

    @ Slushey, Yes this is the same colortheme (probably the same subfaction) as my refineries from a while ago.

    @Shamisenfred... Heh je suis sur que les torpilles vont evoluer par la suite ;)
    Sinon il y'a un peu de défences légeres mais on ne les voit pas :D

    @Henrik some of the special bricks used were noted and linked. However i couldn't find the fabuland ones on peeron.

    Stunning. I especially like the wheel-greeblies set in the Duplo fence pieces.

    Your MOCs were what got me playing Homeworld. This looks fantastic.
  • Shane 4y

    your control of color and form are an inspiration to us all.
  • Kirk0007 4y

    Very nice. Deceptively small.
  • Willis Reifsnyder 4y

    That's too epic for words. < These don't truly begin to explain it.
  • Shannon Sproule 4y

    You are a genius Pierre! Also, Shane :)
    I would note the areas I love but it would be covered in them...You have such a skill with using pieces that have detail smaller than a stud ("sub-stud"?) and combining them in a sculptural style. I gaze at this in awe.
  • Mark Kelso 4y

    Beautiful design work, Pierre! You're the best at making use of everything Lego has to offer.
  • Pierre E Fieschi 4y

    Thanks a lot everyone for the very nice comments! :)

  • Pierre E Fieschi 4y

    ^ nan! ;) la maxi-barre est indispensaaaaaaableuh!
  • Jon Hall 4y

    If there's ever a course that people can attend to learn how to build awesome ships out of LEGO, your work should definitely be on the curriculum!
  • Red Spacecat 4y

    Your work never fails to amaze me with your unique style. I feel honored that you felt inspired by something I made. It was of course you who inspired me to do some Homeworld in the first place, so indirectly you've inspired yourself I guess :)
