Space Pirate Fleet + HVAs

Postby Thagador » Sat Sep 24, 2016 12:03 am

Long time watcher, first time poster. My group found MFZ:RA last year, and we have been enjoying gaming ever since. Only recently we decided to move into IO, and I wanted to post my creations this time, since this sub seems fairly active! I went for a theme of Space Pirates/Looters for the ships. I've yet to name any of my ships, so I apologize for less then creative names, but I hope you enjoy my designs!

The Mothership:

Interceptor (1):

Interceptor (2):

All three together:

The, "Kraken," ship, built specifically for ramming:

Kraken, Interceptors, and the MF Squads:

and last but not least, the HVAs:

I love the look of these.
Unified, yet distinctive.

Those are beautiful!

The black with all the clear pieces breaking it up looks very elegant and menacing!

Thank you!

The Mothership has dual support weapons (still deciding whether or not to split this support/assault instead), a defense system, and a communication system.
Interceptor 1 has point/assault split weapon, defensive system, and a catapult.
Interceptor 2 has two assault weapons, and a defensive system.
The Kraken was build to see if a ship made exclusively for ramming would be fun, so it has 2 defensive systems, and a catapult.
And I decided to go with a Yellow Ace!

Ditto on the black with clear colors, that's a great look. I like how the mothership and interceptors both have that three-pronged shape with fins sticking up. And the Kraken is just scary!

After playing a few games, I made some adjustments to my fleet, updating my companies and HVA's, and added a new member!

A spin-off of the interceptor designs, this ship is build with two catapults instead of split weapon systems. Equipped with recovery arms, this ship can easily swoop in and collect friendly Mobile Frame squads, or crush oncoming squads attempting to take control of the ship!

Equipped with Two Catapults, and a Point Range Weapon.

The current fleet of Interceptor Frigates!

And this is the current idea I'm working with my HVA's, the Squidlings. The front of the ship is actually a detachable Mobile Frame that circles the Kraken Ship. Once the fleet has captured their prize, the Squidlings move in and attach themselves to the stolen cargo, towing it, leaving the Mobile Frame Defenseless. It's up to the Fleet to keep their stolen cargo intact!

Huh, that's odd. Well, I've edited the post, and reposted the images, so hopefully they will work this time.
I can see them logged in, and out, so whatever it was, it should be fixed this time around!
