Kite caldari battleship by wbuxtonva Kite caldari battleship by wbuxtonva
If any of the Eve development team go through to look at the other entries that mesh with the Eve style and happen upon this one, I would greatly like some back and forth on this design, or just Eve design in general.

My entry for the EVE online ship contest. Thank you for any and all consideration by the judges and of course everyone else. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I enjoyed building it. Beyond that all favs, watches, and comments are appreciated.

Feel free to download the image to get a closer look.

It looks like a Rokh mated with a Halcyon (Halo universe), and that offspring mated with one of the ships from Nexus: The Jupiter Incident, and the resulting ship moved in with its grandmother.

In other words, I like it.

Impressive design, with elements of the Wyvern obviously visible; and a size and deployment, very similar to the Rokh. A very good design, though more suitable I think; to a Dreadnought role in EVE, rather than a Battleship. Out of place for a Caldari Battleship, in my opinion; is the 4 large 'Dreadnought Capital Weapon hardpoints' on the Forward section of the Starboard hull. Also, the design of the Stern section, around the engines; seems a little round and has a great deal of curvature. Not so much unlike the Caldari Scorpions new design I suppose; in that it has a much less angular hull. But over such a large area; it seems somewhat out of place, on this ship. Very much like the forward port command area; reminiscent of the Thanatos. Almost makes me think Faction Carrier; with a Gallente-Caldari collaboration, in design.

The beautiful love child of the Rokh, and Abaddon. I love it.

I like this design. Good use of asymmetry to give it a unique look. It fits right in with the Caldari aesthetic, and does remind me a little of the bastard offspring of a Abaddon and a Chimera. It looks like it would make a good 'tank' battleship.

Now THIS is a bruiser and ass-kicker if I've ever seen one. Imagine being in a frigate and bumping into that... hope that jump clone's up to date!

well to cover my bases i also placed what could be power regulators or shield nodes in various spots on the model. so i can just snap my fingers and the design becomes a shield tank. its up to the eve dev team if they pick it.
