Favorite spaceship?

Mine has to be this, from a Dune concept art. Never been used, but it looks fucking amazing.

Really not sure where this would go, but /tg/ has a pretty wide range of thread topics, and /m/ is always shit.

Damn it, of course I forgot the image.

The Panther Clipper. It's a brick with no artistic merit, but the largest weight capability of a civilian ship you can own in the game.

It was fun playing as a Rogue Trader back when I didn't even know what 40k was.

Spaceships designed after sailing vessels aren't remotely realistic or practical. But fuck if they don't look cool.

>> No.22659572

yes they just kinda coast along on the rule of cool

Well, if they're built in space it doesn't really matter. They just can't go into atmo.

I prefer my spaceships angular and swooshy.

True, but having a defined top and bottom in an environment that has no direction is often silly. But who cares.
Oh, and I like my spaceship able to fly in space, or atmosphere or on the surface of the water or down beneath the waves. Because fuck you.

Having a defined top and bottom is just a psychological coping mechanism. We're creatures of gravity, our brains don't really get that there doesn't have to be a "down".

I'm rather fond of this one, particularly in the way it inspired a lot of 40k ship designs.

>> No.22659693

Not gonna disagree there. I'm not one of those autists who get upset when you say "spaceship" when technically it should be "space vessel."

Space vessel sounds too boring. Space ship sounds more exciting, more romantic. I like space ship better, as they sail in an ocean of stars.

While that's a viable tactic, it's usually better to shoot at the other ships.
It's rule of GRIM, DARK and cool.

Yeah, it's called an Armoured Prow. You charge forwards shooting every damn thing you can from your torpedo tubes and dorsal and prow batteries and ram what's left. Which is usually nothing because you hope the hulk floats past you.

>> No.22660787

I don't like how a lot so spaceship 'designs' go into "well mine's cooler because it looks just like yours but it's secretly as big as the whole galaxy"

With very little thought as to the logistics of something that retardedly large.

>Muh realism
>muh fantastic settings

But I think it's a whole lot more interesting when a fantasy design at least 'seems' like it *might* work, rather than "Magic, ain't gotta splain shit"
( or more often "Sufficiently-advanced Technology, ain't gotta splain shit")

>> No.22660801


Never met an Eldar ship with Holo-fields then?

You shoot their sails and you're shooting at a ghost.

>> No.22660820

Battletech's Achilles. It's a heavy assault craft with a massive fucking engine that gives it speed comparable to light fighters. In a setting where the majority of large craft are just transports (either military or otherwise), this thing just goes real fast and has a bunch of fucking guns. It can't even operate in atmosphere/land on planets.

>> No.22660886

pic related has to be one of my favorite spaceships

hated the movie, but damn do i wish there were more hard sci-fi ship designs

would make things so much more interesting

>> No.22661030

I love me some crazy looking spaceships but I do agree with you. I like little details like maneuvering thrusters and ships that don't just act like jet fighters. the Starfury in B5 is a good example of a "realistic" space fighter. the ships in LOGH are also pretty good
