'GAHNN' Sniping Dreadnought

The Ultaran, being the decendants of Makaan, are firm believers that superiority over 'inferior races' is achieved through the construction of giant, powerfull war machines. The Ultaran Dreadnoughts are feared in every corner of the galaxy because their sniping power is immense. They deliver fantastic damage over great distances. However these ships lack the electronics to deliver that pain so far on their own. They require a couple scouts (housed within the ships docking bay) to 'target-paint' coordinates. Therefore, ironically, the immense power of these ships rely on the very fragile nature of the scouts.

 

------------------------------------

 

It's finally finished! This one is a bit bigger and more complex than what im used to, and required a couple BL orders of light grey bricks. Its inner structure is quite sturdy and the armor pannels are angled using many different techniques.

 

I will detail and compare the evolution of the ship through sketches and pictures at a later time. Inspired at first by Vaygr Battleships, i realize that it has more of a Sajuuk shape.

    mmm my previous post didn't work... anywho

    Your work is stunning! You have a true talent, use it and you will be successful in life. Toys come and go, but Legos are forever. I wish I built more over the years but life is distracting, keep up the amazing work!

    By the way, you have great concepts, you should draw/paint more.
