XIV Legion
« on: February 12, 2021, 12:05:26 PM »

A starsector player commissioned me to draw an XIV battlegroup featuring the Legion. Unfortunately the weapons are not accurate but the client was more than satisfied nonetheless. I'm happy to present to you guys, my grand artwork!

Are those Thumpers? Such a bold choice!

The ship looks really awesome, btw!

I have to say, it looks very nice. I believe I spy dual flaks and vulcans in the medium and small slots. No idea what's supposed to be in the large missile slots.

Wow! Thats stunning! Lets see, I also see a Hammerhead, Eagle, and a Phaeton clearly. Not sure about the 3 other small background ships - maybe 2 Enforcers and a something?

The weapons look to me like a standard Legion, with vulcans in the smalls, annihilator rockets in the 5 mediums, and storm needlers in the larges!

(And is that shadow in the bottom left a DA Dreadnought with escorts far far away?)

It's so nice to see this in glorious full resolution! The scaled-down twitter version looks great too, but upon seeing the original, it doesn't do it justice.

That's beautiful! I really like the windows for scale. Makes it easy to imagine myself standing behind one, overseeing the ship.

The game was completed 8 years ago and we get a free expansion every year.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.

This gives an awesome sense of scale that isn't really translated well in-game - it really makes you appreciate the sheer size of the warships we command.  I love it!

I really love the engine lighting effects on the ship. Looks wonderful, you did a great job.

This looks amazing, but those large weapon mounts don't look like missiles, and XIV legion has large missile points(not composite either, meaning no ballistics)

Is this a normal Legion by any chance? The medium slots also seem like missile slots instead of ballistic slots(XIV legion uses medium ballistics, not missiles)
