The Dystopian Wars gallery page has been updated with the concept art for the Covenant of Antarctica Plato Class Cruiser.
Basic ship design looks pretty good, but really? Lasers?
Floating aircraft carriers are okay though? 😉
Well it kind of seems off from the steampunk concept. Not just the lasers, but the designs so far for the faction shown seem somewhat out of place.
If it is lasers en that migt be the case. Not sure what they a meant to be at the moment
The Covenant of Antarctica are supposed to be the guardians of the vault of advanced technology from whence all the fun steampunk goodies came. They should look more advanced than everyone else.
I think they’re hitting a good balance; more futuristic than the other fashions but still not really modern.
I’ll raise you the Macon and Akkron on this one 🙂
Freaking Lasers, I can’t wait.
That last Antarctican preview had me really wondering if it was concept art or a model. This one is obviously concept art. Also, if you look close at the shots coming out of this, it looks like there’s electicity arcing from the guns. Maybe they’re not lasers.
Looks like an advanced Tesla Coil weapon to me.
Or maybe plasma?
Looks plasma-ish to me. Definitely too messy to be a laser as we know them.
Is it too late to say “Pew! Pew! Pew! Laser gun!”? 😛
I do not have the book in front of me but the picture of the general for these guys has a bionic leg/arm and is carry what looks like a prop laz gun from the original Flash Grodon.
For some reason I think steampunk vorlons when I see the design of the ship. Not bad, might actually be first fleet to intrest me apart from the prussians (which everyone likes so there’s over-abundance of prussians from what I see)
From general comments I’ve read on various forums, there may soon be an over-abundance of Antarcticans too 😉
They look a bit like they have escaped from an early James Bond movie but I like ’em. 🙂
I’ll bet we find these to be some sort of modified Tesla devices when they release the background. Hopefully not ‘borealis guns’ or ‘refracted light weapons’.
