The Valdyr-Class Corvette is the latest in design from the Riddari Drive Yards on Riddaris, one of the six moons of Eiras in the Kingdom of Eirangard. Designed as a heavy, well armored, fast, and gun heavy ship, the craft is a has quickly earned the nickname as the "Siege Runner," having been used in one instant to sneak supplies into a world besieged by ships belonging to the Borealis Lords. Armed with a pair of quad 5-inch guns, a pair of 20-inch heavy guns, and point defense lasers, the Valdyr does have a tendency to pour through her available ammunition rather quickly and is limited in long term sustainability alone. However, in fleet engagements and with more selective fire, these craft are valuable anti-fighter/anti-missile escorts to the larger capital ships of the Royal Navy.
Artist's Note: Nothing will ever take away the awe I had the first time I watched Star Wars and sat jaw open as the besieged Tantive IV raced over a faceless desert world to be pursued by the Imperial Star Destroyer. Last month marked the anniversary of visionary artist Ralph Mcquarrie's death. I figured it was time to carry on the tradition and bring a bit more of the magic and variety star wars offered to CoM. I hope you enjoy this tribute design and still finding it refreshingly new and enjoyable.
