The Legion Of Stars

History

The Legion of Stars was a small solar empire that appeared on the galactic stage roughly 4500 years ago that was formed by a cybernetic race known as the Massari. Hungry for knowledge and a urge to discover what lied beyond their little star system, they ventured into the cosmos. Luck would not favor them however, as they ventured into space they soon realized that their small star system just happened to be in the middle of a minefield of hostile and advanced space bearing civilizations. Almost every planet they colonized, almost every star system they entered, the Massari broke some sort of law or territorial violation that warranted their removal or worse, destruction. The Massari had to fight for every piece of space they settled on no matter how valuable it was. This did not stop the Massari however, and as they continued to venture deeper into space they made many friends and allies that aided them in their endeavors. The Massari suffered through many hardships but none of them were in vain. They quickly established themselves as a presence to be feared by conquering their attackers despite their technological inferiority, by using superior tactics. Now in the present, they've established themselves as a very honorable and peace loving race that openly trades with others. However the Massari still have many enemies and therefore have established a large naval force to deal with any invaders that wish to harm them.

Garrude fighter drone
Image

A small, and fast attack drone deployed from Garudar battle carriers to help intercept and destroy bombers and fighters. These fighter drones have become crucial to the Legion's war effort, due to the fact that many of their larger ships lack the ability to intercept fast moving fighters and bombers.

Dreda corvette
Image

A heavily armored corvette that once played a crucial role in defending trading convoys from pirates and other threats. With thick armor plating and 2 deadly pulse cannons, they were a formidable foe to any vessel that happened to be attacking the trading convoy they were assigned to. Ironically, now they are being used to perform raids on other weapon trading convoys crucial to the enemies war effort.

Buezard frigate
Image

A new addition to the Legion's fleet roster, the Buezard was made to detect and alert the Legion fleets defending crucial stategic star systems or Massari colonies to any surprise attacks from a enemy fleet using its advanced sensor array. Since its addition it has proved to be an invaluable addition to the Legion's navy and its defence effort.

Dresda patrol cruiser
Image

A flexible and capable ship that is often used to guard trading stations and to patrol the Legion's outer rim systems. The Dresda is also a favorite of the Legion's policing force, and is used by them to keep pirate raiding parties at bay. Since its introduction into the fleet is has become a symbol of peace and prosperity.

The Berlioz anti-capitol ship cruiser
Image

A symbol of the Legion's power, the berlioz can do allot of damage to any capitol ship that is unfortunate enough to cross paths with it. The Berlioz is usually accompanied by other ships to protect it so it can unleash its deadly barrage of armaments.

Cromag multi-roll cruiser
Image

Widely considered the backbone of the Legion's navy, the Cromag is a tough and reliable ship that has proved its worth in battle. The Cromag has a multitude of armaments that make it perfect for almost any situation that arises.

Garudar battle carrier
Image

If the Cromag was to be considered the backbone, then the Garudar would definitely be considered the brains of the Legion's navy. When assigned to any fleet, the Garudar is usually tasked with directing fleet operations, and usually holds the fleet commander. The Garudar also serves the role of a carrier, and is able to hold 16 Garrude drones to assist in fleet activities. Due to its high strategic importance, it is very heavily defended. Not only that, it holds roster of weaponry that makes it a formidable opponent.

The Huetep seasoned dreadnought
Image

A old and technologically outdated ship, the Huetep has proven itself time and time again despite its age. Production of this ship has ceased long ago, but many still remain, and have stood against the test of time. It can hold its own against almost any foe with its heavy weaponry and giant heavy auto cannons. Its only disadvantages are a lack of projectile interception devices and the ability to power only 2 deflector modules at a time. Due to these disadvantages, the Huetep never goes on a mission alone, and the remainder of these ships have been assigned to fleets where surrounding ships can provide support.

The Genobee advanced dreadnought
Image

The successor the the Huetep, the Genobee was very recently developed to replace the outdated Huetep. The Genobee has yet to be tested in a real life combat situation. However, combat simulations have shown that the Genobee will be very effective in a multitude of combat situations. Commanders of the Legion's navy are hoping the Genobee not only lives up to its predecessors legacy, but surpasses it as well.

Non Minifleet ships

The Daora
Image

A large trading barge used to transport food, weapons, ship parts, or even sometimes small ships. These large vessels are truly a sight to behold, especially when they gather for large trading convoys.

Mehlikes the purple one.... nice and pointy. The cruiser is good too, but i'm kind of a noob so I don't really know what I'm looking for to give you CC :(
They both look good though.

Like the integration of the torpedo and the twin auto into the hull by the use of similar colors. By contrast the little machineguns stand out glaringly. Also you could try moving the engine block on top of the sections with the deflectors.

Personally, I don't think the engine block needs to be moved.

However, I agree that the machine guns are just somehow.... glaring. Maybe move them back towards the purple a little..? and yes, well played with the torp and autocannon

It reminds me to the Shadow fighters in Babylon 5. And that can never be something bad.

Just messing around with the new steam punk sections kaelis released recently. Colours kind of fail IMO... I was trying to get a iron clad and copper tubing look.

Also messed around with the cruiser a bit.

Image

Moved the engine block to the top, changed the colours a bit and removed the machine guns. Added another auto cannon to compensate for loss of firepower the machine guns provided.

The last two are quite pleasant smallships, nothing spectacular, but can't make any complaints either.

As for the steampunk one, i think the colors are okay, they just need to be brighter and maybe a bit more cotnrasting.

Not bad, but you really need to use more shades of grey to at least give a sense of depth and gradients.

The first ship is really well done and interesting. You should continue with that style instead of your new one, which is pretty bland.

Actually, I prefer these last ships you posted, they are awesome, just chage their colors, maybe something like your little cruiser.

Don't get me wrong, these new ships are well made. They just don't seem to grab my attention though.
