I have wondered if the class of the vessel is
King Sword
or
Kings Word
?

Nice clean lines, sloped armor, narrow frontal and side profile. A practical and elegant design.

I read in some of your other comments that your fleets tend to converge at an angle to one another so I am assuming (due to the top down view in the corner) that it can fire most of it's tureets forward on the attack run.

One question do your ships make use of centerline, or spinal mounts to give ships a heavy punch directly forward? the designs I've seen seem to be prefect for a large battery of centerline guns to deliver a killing shot forward.

There's no real indication to give you a sense of scale other than the large turrets, but I am guessing this is on the relatively small size in contrast to some of your larger vessels. It definitely has an interesting look.

What I like most about the design is that it is such a departure from the Alliance's design ethos. When looking at this vessel, I get the impression that it was developed by a culture that is separate from the Alliance with an entirely divergent design philosophy. Considering how you designed both nations' ships, that is quite an accomplishment.

The ship is about as big as an Alliance Arcane-Class at 1.3km long.

And thanks for the compliment mate. I really wanted the Kingdom's ships to be distinct. Something someone could look at and go "man...those things are meant to get into gun range." (which they are)

Hope you like this and the King Robert-Class as they progress.

Amazing work as usual!
What's the silhouette in the lower corner of? Size comparison or another view of the vessel?

So what are the hexagon covered panels? Also count me in as one of those who will miss the Coalition's design. While you were correct about they were somewhat generic and too obvious as antagonists, their designs were superb.

You've done it again sir. To reiterate an earlier comment, she does look like a brawler. I do see some similarities to Alliance ships thou.

You should put all of these ships into a compilation/size comparison!

Great work BTW. I'd love to hear al of the backstory on all these ships, is there a place I could find it?

We are in the midst of rebuilding everything due to a transition to a new timeline, but there is a lot on www.thechroniclesofman.com.

A good place to start is here: [link]

That's a really fresh and unique shape you've got here :thumbsup:
It somehow reminds me of a Rhino mixed with a shark :D

Someone made the comment about it looking Halo-y. From the small top down silhouette (reminding me very vaguely of the Marathon class cruisers) I can see that but from the side it seems much much more unique. From the side though it almost looks aquatic like a fish and ultimately it was when I was noticing that was when I realized "I'm looking at it backwards the 'tail's" on the right. When I realized that I started to see how aggressive this thing might look with the 'blocky' front bearing weapons down on a target.

This version seems more blocky than the other ships you've made.

It seems to take a lot from Arcane-Class. Or maybe it's only me.

I think you need to look at the Arcane carefully. Because the shapes are dramatically different. However, they are the same weight class. As such (and much like destroyers of WWII) there are inherent similarities due to their function.

I was thinking about engines and that "Armored plates" hiding more guns.
Other than that everything looks "new".

Armored plates don't hide more guns. That's actually just plating.

This ship has a slight halo frigate shape to it in my mind. I really like the design direction your taking with the kingdom.

:iconchroniclesofman:
ChroniclesofMan Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah. I guess I can see that a bit. Mostly I think its that flat front an the general "gun" shape.

Well either way I like it. I know you get a lot of request for more ships but when will we see more of the writing side CoM?
Reply
:iconchroniclesofman:
ChroniclesofMan Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The writing side is developing as we speak. CoM 2.0 is hopefully going to flesh out a lot more of the history. That's sort of why the ships have been a bit sparse as of late.
