I like the different design for a highly specialist vessel while keeping the theme with the engine block.

The rectangular bit on the upper prow gives the feeling of a visor... Which looks cool, but at the same time it distorts the scale a little.
To clarify, the impression I get from the "visor" is that it looks like an actual cockpit rather than a hullplate several hundreds of metres across. It makes me think the whole vessel has the size of a bomber or something rather than an escort-sized vessel.

Other than that, you gotta love the raven's beak! <3

The prow will keep the general shape, but the detailing is being reworked a bit. :)

The felis class has a definite chaos vibe with that pointy prow... Nice...

Well, there needs to be a link between the loyalists and traitors since they have the same roots... ;)

Indeed. Essentially the chaos vessels are just antiquated Imperial ones that predate even the heresy and some hark from the earliest days of the great crusade itself...

Well....the tricky thing with BFG is that many of the Chaos ships are actually post-Heresy designs that turned traitor.

Funny you should mention that! I did something like that a really long time ago. Maybe I will do a hammerhead for one of the system ships. :)

I like it :)

Looking a little bit like a corellian corvette. But not that much.

Nice stuff.

A little bit less enthousiast for the mines, i would have enjoyed an old style like WWI old maritim mines. Round shaped, etc.
