Created for Lapapsnow's mini-tournament thingy for 12,000P to 14,000P Red ships. I like making big ships, but I'm usually too lazy to spend the time to build them without some kind of event going on to warrant their construction.

Anyway, this is a dreadnought warship of the Imperium, my main Red faction fleet, and my second time building something over 8000P. Overall I'm pretty happy with this design; I think it looks pretty nice from an aesthetic perspective (the one advantage of the Reds having only tiny armour pieces is that you have have some nice complex designs with them), and it's decently combat-effective in that it's been able to kill all comparable Red ships I've thrown against it (admittedly I didn't have a lot of test material). Vulnerable to flanking attacks blowing up the main generator cluster as with the rest of the Imperium ships, but from the front it can take a fair bit of enemy fire, and its agility is mostly non-terrible (at least by the standards of being a very large ship of a faction which isn't known for having terribly good agility). I can't be bothered to count the armament, but it has a lot of anti-missile lasers, tempests, and phasers, plus some drones.

Took me around eight hours to build - it's 5308 parts in total, more than twice the normal block limit.

Scale comparison with a standard Red mothership:

Next to the rest of the Imperium fleet (the carrier at centre-left is a normal 8000P ship):

Seems like just a kind of random spontaneous thing, but I thought it might be fun to send something in.

Thanks Owl! (don't forget to e-mail verify the dropbox referral so I get free diskspace!)

I will not have that luxury today sadly enough, I guess I'll have to try building a titan in 30 minutes then... unless it's not *due* tomorrow...

I made it in one night... Because who needs sleep, right?

You have at least until next week to get something together, being as Laps mentioned that he's on vacation for that period at the moment.

Well he did say next week, so it'll be Laps and Camo crunch time instead...

He said 12k to 14k, being as the two ships he had as a baseline (his Aul Glave and someone else's Uber Titan) were 12k and 14.5k, respectively.

That.... Actually looks kind of threatening for a red faction ship~ ^^"
Though, the size comparison screen shot kinda ruins the intimidation~
