Archangel New Background by ChroniclesofMan Archangel New Background by ChroniclesofMan
I recently did some tweaking with the background on my starships as I was unsatisfied with the plain black. It was a poor frame for my ships.

Also, this image reflects the transition. (I just noticed that I forgot to update the name plate, but it should be DN soon).

Recently I went through and changed up the classifications of starships in response to a few request and comments from players that got me thinking. So below is the new set up.

Old - New

Ships of the Line:
Superdreadnought - Dreadnought (DN)
Dreadnought - Heavy Battleship (BG)
Battleship - Battleship/Battlecruiser (BB/BC) (depends on specs)
Battlecruiser - Armored Cruiser (CA)

Ships of the Lance:
Heavy Cruiser - Strike Cruiser (CS)
Light Cruiser - Destroyer Leader (DL)
Destroyer - Destroyer (DD)
Frigate - Frigate (FG)
Corvette - Corvette (CR)

Hope you all enjoy.

Keep them coming, these are some of the best designs I've seen. Can't wait to see some more of the ground vehicles as they role out. Great job!

The designations now have a more WWI feel to them. Weren't Dreadnought-era ships called armored cruisers in WWI? And battlecruisers were built to combat armored cruisers.

Actually no. Armored cruisers were pre dreadnought ships. More in the Late 90's early 10's of the 19th and 20th century. Battlecruisers were built as a follow on to dreadnoughts and superdreadnoughts in WWI as a concept of a heavy warship with high speed. A cruiser killer that used speed to make up for armor deficiencies.

Sometimes I wonder what a modern day naval dreadnought would look like if one were designed.

It would be useless and pointless. For a true blue-naval conflict modern surface combatants would be upstaged by submarines. Not to mention lighter, faster, and smaller surface combatants could hunt and kill larger units easier as well. By the nature of the way warfare has gone, such a ship would only be a very expensive target with very limited functions.

Thanks for the clarification. Naval history between 1865 and the 1930's is kind of a fuzzy area for me. I'm still learning

All of it using a US Navy innovation: the gun turret.

As always very nice piece of work, on a side note is the strike cruiser going to be quasi LPD cuz if not I would just rename the class to "line cruiser" this way it defines it can operate interdependently of major support (by being a cruiser) but still function within the a major line of battle/ lance.

I prefer the Strike Cruiser name. It clarifies its duty as a heavy hitting unit of the lance.

Yeah the new background looks much better, it ties it with who builds them and just looks very pleasing to the eye.

all these high detailed ships are cool no doubt about that but I wonder how you get all those tiny details? do you do like I do and work on them in high magnification modes or do you just think in tiny like that and work in full scale. if so that must be hard work all those tiny details. still over all I'd hate to see this ship on a bad day ;p

Interesting. I always thought the Superdreadnought classification was a little odd. I would also say Assault Cruiser over Armored Cruiser but then I saw Strike Cruiser so that might be too much duplication lol. Anyho keep up the good work.

Armored Cruiser also has historical context. That is why I picked it.

Well I will post more info once we get the RP set up and the setting planned. I'm leaning towards either a) A warship crew that is a group of misfits or b) A group of pirates. Can't decide yet.

B) Is overused I think but
A) Is a good idea. Reminds me of Starship book series by Mike Resnick. That book you could use as example and make something better while avoiding it's flaws.

Yeah, but it is done ALOT among the roleplay community. Pirates are way overdone. We'll see.
